My Afghan

So I was working on a crochet infinity scarf when one of my co-workers asked if I would teach her to crochet. Of course, I said YES! So that somehow turned into a group/staff crochet project. Some of the after school kids saw us crocheting and decided that they wanted to learn so now I have a crochet club! And I'm overjoyed about it! Anyway, some people are working on afghans and some are working on scarves. I"m working on n a blanket using 5 skeins of yarn that I've had for about 10 years now....5 won't be enough for the entire thing so I had to match up and purchase 2 skeins of coordinated colors. My original yarn is a multi-color so it wasn't too hard to find matching yarn since I have about 5 colors to choose from. Anyway, below are pics of what I've done so far. We started March 1st and I'm so excited about it! I'll keep you guys posted on my progress. 


FYI: crocheting is so relaxing for me. Do any of you guys craft? If so what is your go to craft for relaxing? 




Yarn I'm using when it was just a prop in my living room. 

Finished with first skein of multi-colored yarn. 
  
Whent to Hobby Lobby and found the perfect accents colors to break up the multi-colored yarn blocks. 
Light rose color doesn't match as well as it appeared to. But I'm going to keep going. 

Doesn't look too bad. Can't wait to finish! 



Yarn purchased for Crochet Club.

BOOK REVIEW: "I Almost Forgot About You" by Terry McMillan

While I'm not a Terry McMillan fanatic, I do usually enjoy her books. This title was hard to read and confusing from the very beginning. I understand that Georgia is on a mission to find herself but the books is long and gets boring often. Plus there are way too many characters to keep up with. I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.



BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.


Here's two links to purchase the book.

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …
