Sounds fun! I am cleaning house now for a vacation the week of Christmas. I want to make origami, note cards, and bookmarks. I think it will be fun. I am not crafty but I have been itching to make something for weeks!
You could take a pic and start an album on fb, 365 days of finished projects.
You are on a major roll! *high five* Boy, 6.5 pounds in one week, when you haven't exactly been starving yourself. It must be a wonderful feeling.
I have committed to using up all the wool I have lying around the house before buying any more. Tried knitting yesterday, but I have discovered that it makes my shoulder ache like crazy if I do more than a little. So no knitting projects with deadlines. I have to step out to buy a bigger crochet hook for the cloche I want to make. It does feel good to be making things again.
Thanks for the bath "recipe". I guess I'll have to try it once and find out if I like the results. But what am I supposed to be looking for? This is what I still don't get. Sabine says it makes her feel nauseous (presumably because of the junk coming out, so I guess that's good) and Tomi says it makes her feel great. So is it working if I feel sick or if I feel great? Very confusing... ;)
I was going to say I don't start projects, so I don't have a bunch lying around. Then I remembered the chair that I attempted to reupholster once upon a time, that isn't done (the cushion is pinned and needs sewing but I have no machine) ... all the pictures sitting in a box that haven't seen the inside of books ... hmm. I think I'll stop there before I get depressed. ;)
Back to the gym today
Well, I told my Honey that I'd be going back to the gym with him once we had wheels again. We do, he remembered, so I am. I guess I'll get used to it again. But I'm not exactly looking forward to it. I am such a slug. And it is just walking and some weights. Not hard at all. But those words...the gym. They just don't stir warm, fuzzy feelings in my heart.
Up at 5:00
10:00 2 eggs, 4 bacon
kale with onions and turkey broth
1:30 small Liquid Fat Bomb
4:15 curried cauliflower and turkey
a spoonful of peanut butter
6:00 1C moussaka
1C sweet potato and corned beef hash
Water: 13 glasses
Biking: 40 minutes
Bed at 9:00
Lots of slow moving throughout the day, as I was clearing out the front room. Then plenty of sitting, as I did all the filing. I just need to put away some stacks of papers this morning, and vacuum, and I'll be done. I was tuckered out last night, and fell into bed. Even made Honey take out the dogs by himself.
My biking was down to the new 99cent store that opened up a couple of weeks ago. This is a new chain for our area, so I had to check it out. They have a LOT of stuff. Even produce(that's where I got the sweet potato...and some 'artisan' lettuce- 4 small heads for 99 cents!), which I was agreeably surprised by. I'll go there again.
You'll have to let us know how you fare with the bath, Judg. I'm going to try more ginger in it the next time I take one (Oh, they had fresh ginger at the store, too! Three knobs for 99.). I think it is something I could do once a week.
I have started making my project list. I wonder how many items I will have on there. Guesses?
I should go tp the gym tonight.
Project: I hop no more than 365. I have to make a list of home improvement and organizational projects. I like your idea of breaking them into logical pieces.
I've never been a fan of gyms either.
I gave a full (very full, too full) report on the bath in my journal, so I won't inflict it on everyone again. ;)
I went to the gym with Honey, but managed to distract myself with a new craft while I was walking. While trying to figure out what I could bring to jury duty next week (no knitting needles, crochet hooks, or embroidery needles allowed!) I remembered a friend who had done some kumihiko (cord making). I made a jig out of a soft cheese container lid, got some embroidery floss, cut it to size, and tried it out. It is easy to do while walking laps, since you don't have to watch for obstacles. I got two inches done during a hour-long walk. Not the speediest craft, but, hey, my hands weren't doing anything! I will definitely bring it along if I have to go in next week. I am supposed to call the evening before, to see if they want me.
Somehow I missed this. You're doing jury duty?
I got called up once, but got out of it, because they hadn't twigged to the fact that I had moved away from that town. I was called as a witness once. It was so long ago, I honestly don't even remember if they had me testify. I know...
Now that Littlest is fourteen, I am eligible. In our county, having children under the age of fourteen whom you are in charge of gets you an exemption. Honey is called regularly every two to three years. My turn!
Oh really? No, that doesn't work as an exemption here, that I know of. They pay you for babysitting services if I remember right.
Every two to three years? ??? How many trials do you have going on down there? I rarely hear of anyone getting called. Maybe I'm just not listening...
