Rain please! Or at least maybe a little cooler air.....

Isn't it funny how we all have trouble getting going sometimes? It is so hot right now that I don't even want to do anything in doors, much less think about going outside! Interestingly, I just read a fellow bloggers post about how she was having trouble getting starter because it is 4 degrees below zero at her home in Tasmania! Would someone please send me a ticket to in-between land!

Actually, truth be known, I am probably having trouble getting started because my triple irish chain project hit a glitch. For some stupid reason my squares aren't lining up as I am attempting to piece the blocks. I have measured them multiple times and they all appear to be the correct size, so why the heck are the rows still 1/2" off from one another!>!!@#!$#@@$#????

I have been avoiding my studio, because I know I will have to rip something apart before I start again. I hate unsewing! I know it isn't difficult, it is just so not right.

Enough whining for now. PLEASE comment and let me know what you are doing - I can at least live vicariously!

Roast Beef - Easy and Delicious

I just made the most amazing Roast Beef I have had in my life! I found the recipe on the Taste of Home forums:

2 - 2 1/2 pound roasts (5 pounds of roast any kind)
1 envelope Ranch Dressing mix
1 envelope Italian Dressing mix
1 envelope Brown Gravy mix
1 cup of water

Put the roast in a crock pot, followed by the water and then all of the need to stir.
Cook in crock-pot according you manufacturer directions.....basically I just cook on high until it smells good!

How easy is that? Let me know if you try it - you will never go back to your old recipe!
