Semi Finals Disappointment

Life is like a camera: focus on what’s important, capture the good times, and develop from the negatives.

What a heartbreaking game if your an English fan. A goal in the first five minutes of play then several missed opportunities in the first half to allow Croatia to come back and win it in extra time. I nervously knit through some parts and paced through others. The British Hubby and I (and I think must of England) didn’t expect our team to make it this far. Congrats to France and Croatia for making it to the final match.

This morning I had several hours to wait before the match started. I decided to make raspberry cheesecake bars with a coconut macaroon crust. This is a favorite recipe from George Stella’s The Complete Low-Carb Cookbook. I prefer the coconut crust over regular graham cracker crusts. 006The finished product might not win me top baker on The Great British Baking Show. Its amazing taste compensates for what it lacks in visual appeal. 014The World Cup games are coming to a close. I have managed a little extra knitting when I wasn’t nervously pacing during England matches. I’m on Crabby dishcloth number five. I’ve already given one away. The lime green one on the right is for me. 016Arctic Shadow has 11 inches completed. I think the pattern calls for 94. Just 83 more to go! 018I’m making real progress on my Summer Linen Wrap. I’m on stripe five with the contrasting color. It won’t be long before I start the decreases. 019Ernie slept through most of the match. He looks so calm. Little does he know he’s going to the kitty dentist tomorrow.
