Where Was This Stuff At Christmas??????

Well, this certainly isn't the norm in our area of Tennessee!!!!!!

And the ability of the local drivers........ummmmm......let's just say it leaves ALOT to be desired!!! LOL looks like we are going to be snowed in this weekend....and I am so looking forward to it. Alittle reading, alittle sewing, alittle cleaning, alittle baking........and apparently a house full of 20 somethings!!! LOL

Sorry I haven't posted more frequently....I am still trying to balance home, school, life!!! It's a bit overwhelming at times. I can tell you that I made the Dean's List......I was really excited to find the certificate in my mailbox... I know, it may be silly.....but I have been working really hard and to see it acknowledged, that is sweet!

We have had a little shop open locally for primitives....I, of course, couldn't wait to stop by. Just a small shop but the owner seems very nice. I think I am going to try to put some of my dolls and such in her shop. With everything going on, I knew I didn't have time to make enough items for a booth or a show right now....but to have a place to put some fun things I would like to do would be great!!! And it if gets rolling, it might help me get back to doing more of it.

One thing I have started to do is work on my health. I have had so many starts and stops with this. Part of the problem is I tend to approach this kind of stuff with an "all or nothing" type attitude. Clean the kitchen out of all the junk food and usually it is not a few days down the road that we are all craving it. So I am trying to be better to approach this with baby steps. I know where I want to end up at....but I know that trying to jump in full force will just crash and burn. So I want to post each months focus on the side of my blog and will let you know how I do...a way to be accountable. And I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. I started this month with vitamins/supplements. I hate taking stuff.....occasionally an Advil or maybe something for sinus....but that is pretty much it. Anything that has to be taken on a regular basis, usually falls quickly by the wayside. But this month, I purchased on of those boxes where you can lay out everything you are to take for a week. I have started taking the baby aspirin, a good multivitamin, glucosamine (sp??) for my knees (and I am seeing a big improvement after two weeks!!!), fish oil, and calcium. And n honestly say that I feel better. I also have added in drinking more water.....which is a big deal for me. (hey, I am Miss Diet Pepsi!!!)....

They have ordered our massage beds that we get to take home....I am really excited as once I get it, I have to do 50 massages on my own to turn in before the end of the quarter! I have a bunch of volunteers, which is fun!!!

Well, this potpourri of info is to catch you up on what is going on here.......looking forward to some time this weekend to catch up on some of my favorite blogs!!!

Have a wonderful, fun, relaxing something fun for yourself....and something to feed your creative spirit!!!


  1. That's what it looks like for your neighbors to the north (well, we aren't very much north of you, about 60 miles or so). It sounds like you are being very sensible and thoughtful about what you want to do to improve your health! My husband and I are working on the same thing.
    Congratulations on making the dean's list! That is a great accomplishment!! Of course you want it confirmed!

  2. Thanks Julia....looks like alot of us are in for a crummy weather weekend!! But it is the excuse I need to just stay home and do those things I have been needing to take care of.
    Let me know if you run across anything that helps with the health thing....I picked up Earth Balance "non dairy" butter at EarthFare this week and we really like it. So it is another "new" thing I can add in.

  3. Brr lots of snow. but like you said, perfect opportunity to catch up on some reading.
    I'm with you, I'm not very good at taking pills (and I work in the pharmacy business LOL)

  4. In Germany, looked and looks exactly like this year's winter and it is finally time that it is spring.


I love hearing your input, comments, ideas and encouragment.....thank you!!!
