Started Decluttering, but Sidetracked
Thursday, April 22, 2010      4 comments

I actually did start decluttering my arts and crafts room today, but I didn't get near enough done. Had a few distractions with telephone calls, and then I moseyed outside and worked in the yard for awhile since it was overcast today. I needed ... Read more
My Trouble Goals
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      5 comments

I'm in Stage 3 of the Lifestyle Change strategies, so tonight I'll blog about my trouble goal(s). The most trouble I have with my nutrition is staying within the recommended range for fat grams. Most every evening when I run the feedback repo... Read more
Vacation Sketching Class
Monday, April 19, 2010      5 comments

I really enjoyed my sketching class this past week-end at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas. Outdoors, we did quick sketches of the lagoon first, then filled in with Derwent watercolor pencils. After applying a wet brush to the sketches, we then in... Read more
Anything to Avoid Housework
Thursday, April 15, 2010      4 comments

Figured it was time for an update... The past few days I have been working outside planting flowers in the beds and trying to get the yard in better shape. Was able to spread some weed and feed on the front lawn before the rains started coming... Read more
Pulling Weeds
Sunday, April 11, 2010      5 comments

When I pull weeds in the yard I lose all track of time. There's something addictive (meditative?) about getting rid of those pesks, by the roots, that gives me total satisfaction. Today was overcast, and since I am sensitive to the sun it was... Read more
Missed Fused Glass Class
Friday, April 09, 2010      2 comments

Got all prepared to go meet my friends for lunch today and then go over to a friend's house for what I call "Friday Friends Fused Glass Class." I met four other ladies while attending a fused glass class about a year ago, and we've been meeting ... Read more
Early to Bed, Early to Rise...
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      4 comments

Not! I've been getting at least 8 hours of sleep, but I certainly have not been following the old adage of "Early to bed, early to rise." I've been either reading in bed or looking up art blogs on the computer until the wee hours of the nigh... Read more
My New Motivation
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      3 comments

I love shopping at the local "Tuesday Morning" store, and I always manage to find something to bring home that I just can't live without. Today it was sleepwear. I found three sets of pastel-colored pajamas in soft fabrics that I can't wait to... Read more
Flowers from Recycled Book Pages
Thursday, April 01, 2010      9 comments

On March 23 I posted a blog entry titled "Craft Day" about making paper flowers from book pages. My description without pictures wasn't very clear, so here are a few photos to give you an idea of the craft that McJulieO and I were working on. ... Read more
Hummus -- Um, Um, Good!
Tuesday, March 30, 2010      4 comments

One of my friends who is also on SparkPeople came over today for our weekly craft day together. She brought some homemade hummus with her for me to try, and it was absolutely wonderful! She started out with a SparkPeople recipe, but also added s... Read more
I Said I Wouldn't, but I Did
Monday, March 29, 2010      2 comments

Last week I stated -- emphatically! -- that I wouldn't gain back the pounds I'd already lost. I would not. I would not. Well, I did. I gained back only 6 ounces, but that threw me into a higher number, so it really hurt my ego. In March I... Read more
Alice in Wonderland
Sunday, March 28, 2010      1 comments

I went to see "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D today, and I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the set designs, costumes and make-up, and of course, the special effects. I had read a few reviews of the movie before I went, and I agree that it mi... Read more
Gardening, or Just Plain Work?
Saturday, March 27, 2010      5 comments

Some people might call it gardening, but I call it plain ol' working in the back yard. And sweating. It's a beautiful day in South Texas today, so I got out this morning and really enjoyed pulling weeds, cutting back frozen limbs, transplantin... Read more

Just got back from a sushi bar... I ate: Two crunchy shrimp and crab sushi rolls A cup of egg drop soup with chicken Two pieces of shrimp tempura About 3 ounces of chicken teryaki Three pieces of vegetable tempur... Read more
Craft Day
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      4 comments

On Tuesday afternoons two friends and I get together and work on some sort of craft project. We have not met since before Christmas, so it was really fun to get back together today. Whenever we meet we enjoy seeing what everyone has rescued from... Read more
