I just read an interesting article about setting up a personal financial checklist. Since I'm really in tune with lists I think this may help me immensely. Check it out at ChristianPF.

Divinity is a lot of work and sometimes a failure so I don't make it year round.
* 2 cups sugar
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/3 cup light corn syrup
* 2 egg whites
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 cup diced candied cherries
* 1/4 cup diced candied pineapple
* 1 cup chopped walnuts
1. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water and corn syrup; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 250 degrees F (hard-ball stage). Remove from the heat.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Slowly pour hot sugar mixture over egg whites, beating constantly. Add vanilla and salt. Beat until candy loses its gloss and holds its shape, about 14 minutes. Stir in fruit and nuts.
3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.

There's a great blog Star Impulse that is giving away tickets to one performance nationwide. I'm entering because I really want to see the Globetrotters and if I can get free tickets, all the better.
Actually anyone can enter by going to the website and I'll even give you the link, but please don't try too hard. I really want those tickets for myself.
I recommend visitors go to the home page and look at everything Star Impulse has to offer. I'd much prefer you look at the rest of the blog and not pay too much attention to the Globetrotters tickets, okay?

I decided to show some of the quilts I've made. I haven't done anything recently and looking at my pictures it makes me really want to start making quilts again. I have several I've started and put aside and I have enough fabric to make several quilts.
Do you have a favorite quilt design? I like things fairly simple but the neon quilt I made for Tara is definitely the exception. Initially it was supposed to be for a twin bed but Diane kept calling me and saying they had moved her to a bigger bed and I had to keep adding on to make it the right size. I think it turned out pretty well.

I've been reading so many posts about pride of accomplishments and I'm realizing I'm not doing what I planned. So give me a couple of days to get some photos and I'll be back with something to show everyone.
This post was inspired by The Follower Appreciation Extravaganza over at In Through The Out Door!

Nevertheless, I decided to participate in Homemaker Honey's giveaway and as a result I am posting 10 random things about me.
1. I love to read, especially murder mysteries
2. I knit and crochet in my spare time
3. I've made several quilts, but only machine stitching, nothing by hand
4. I spend way too much time on the computer
5. Very few people ever realize that I really don't want to talk to them
6. I don't feel old until I realize that my great grandkids are starting middle school - WOW!
7. I just realized that I am now one of those old ladies who shouldn't be wearing shorts in public.
8. I'm a junk food junkie
9. I really want to retire but can't afford to
10. My friends think I'm very lucky at winning things - they don't realize it's my second job :)
That wasn't too hard so maybe I'll get the hang of writing something reasonably interesting eventually.

I found this fascinating quote today:
I had the chance to test out an Oreck Halo Vacuum Cleaner. When I received the box I was very excited to take it out of the box and give it a try. Of course all the daycare kids were watching me as I open the big box wondering what was in it. I was really expecting a lot of pieces to put together but I was very surprised. I took it out of the box and the only thing I had to put on was the handle. It was very simple to put on. It also has two attachments and the hose that came with it. Soon as I got the vacuum together I plugged it right in and went ahead and gave it a try. I was very amazed at all the dirt that it got up. I actually saw the dirt vibrating to the vacuum. Here is a look at how the vacuum cleaned…Deborah Wellenstein, You can earn 1 extra entries each for doing any of the following (you must post a separate comment for each one that you do), Feb 2010
