Promises, promises - Mountains, Starsky, Spa & Sock Wars

Hello fellow non readers,

Here is a list of things I have done in the past two weeks.


The last weekend of September was my boyfriends b-day and we decided to go back to the mountains (went in July) at Wintergreen Resorts (Blue Ridge Mountains) in Virginia. Living in Washington, DC can be very hectic and stressful sometimes, so it was nice to slow down a little and enjoy the beautiful view and amenities the resort has to offer. We went with another couple (his aunt and her partner). We had a ball in front of the fireplace and staying up late playing cards and enjoying each other company and of course plenty of alcohol. On the last day of the trip we went to the spa and received a couple massage. It was wonderful, it was my boyfriend and I, first massage and we will definitely do it again - it was so peaceful and tranquil. I have always wanted to get a massage and never had the opportunity or kept pushing it back. Look who else decided to ride along to the mountains.

STARSKY (back) & SCARFSTYLE - making a debut in the mountains on the back porch. Scarf style has beautiful scarves, I am just at awe with this book. I am trying to join the knitalong with no success. One day.....

One more mountain picture


As mentioned before I lost the war, battle, scuffle - whatever you want to call it. I was killed before even leaving the gates. I still had fun and will definitely do it again. Here is the sock I started for Sheri (couldn't complete, was sent an email declaring my death). I loved this pattern and am thinking about doing some socks for me. Well below, is a pic of it. I will take a picture and upload the killer socks I received in the mail.I was known in the sockwar realm as sockwarrior and did poorly, I was deceased before the weekend was over and did not complete one of my socks. Well here is a picture of the sock I was trying to complete so that I could get Sheri, but it was not meant to be Sk8tgrl got me - I must say a pleasant death, I will upload pictures of the socks later. So, here is my first attempt at sockwars, I will definitely be ready next year.

Okay, okay, I think I have redeemed myself from last week for not writing, I will write about this past weekend soon. Pretty boring though. Until next time - may the saga continue.......

awwwww. The pictures are making me homesick. I grew up in Manassas and moved to the Front Royal area when I graduated high school. I really miss Sky Line Drive in the fall!

Hi Sherry. I just emailed you back and it bounced back to me. Can you email me with the email that you use the most. I need to update my file and let your SP know.
