Monday Mutterings

Monday is too far way from Friday but Friday is too close to Monday.
I told myself I wouldn't turn on the television today and get caught up in the Inauguration hoop-la but I did it anyway.  I tuned into Fox News and listened or watched while working.  All I saw were dollar signs and the ding of a cash register.
3 course lunch with lobster tails, bison, champagne, and wine. 
Ding. Ding. Ding. Ding.
Fancy gifts.
Beyonce singing the national anthem.
My friend and I are working on getting an Etsy store up and running to sell our crochet, knitting, and sewing projects.  I will post a link when we get it going.  In the meantime,  we are both coming up with items to sell.   This is a bag I finished over the weekend.  The pattern is my own (need to write it out) except for the square for the front pocket; that is from a Red Heart Yarn afghan pattern.

I know I haven't been blogging lately but how come I can't just upload a picture from my computer?  I had to use Picassa.  Is there a work around for this? or am I just an idiot?
The weather in Utah lately could be best described at "too damn cold".  I like winter but I also like to be able to get outside and enjoy it. 
I bought a pass to use the pool at the little hotel in town.  I've been trying to get there at least 3 days a week.  Working on losing the ten pounds I have gained since last summer.
 It isn't budging.
Hope everyone has a great week!

"too damn cold" perfectly sums it up.
GAH! And the air? Don't even start me on that.....

Great idea on the etsy shop - be sure to post links so that we can all pimp it out!

And I too was disgusted with the hoopla surrounding the inauguration. REALLY??!! And I would have been as irritated even if it had been Mitt. For a country that is trajically in debt, we find money to spend on crap like this?
