From spring back to winter, it seems like! We were almost 80 degrees yesterday with some pretty fierce winds. Today is rainy and colder with 1 to 2 inches of snow expected tonight. Really Mother Nature?

I had a warmer breakfast today. The banana bread pudding with chocolate PB2 on top. First time trying that [...]

Paint colors and carbs

A couple of deeper posts this week, so now time for something a little more fun. Like my new clock!! Yesterday John said “So do you want to go to the mall tonight?” You had better believe my fingers flew on the keyboard to get my work done in a timely manner I was looking [...]

Circus fat?

You know how you think if you had enough money to hire a personal trainer and all that and had someone cook for you that weight wouldn’t be an issue? Of course, celebrities prove this wrong all the time. The latest? Kirstie is back at Jenny Craig.

So many things wrong in just 30 [...]

What’s blooming!

Okay, I am waaaay jumping the gun here, but finally seeing something poke out of the ground other than an icicle!

Of course, some of the garden is still buried, but I will take whatever right now. There is some foliage that was frozen green from last fall, which is cool. That will die [...]

Side flooring project

Something that we were able to do since our house closing is delayed is helping my parents install a new Pergo floor in their house. My parents moved into this house a little over 5 years ago. The original carpet was a dark green color and had seen better days, so it was time to [...]

I started off with a good workout at the gym:

Happy Mardi Gras and another chili recipe!


Happy Mardi Gras! We usually have a party, but did not this year. At first it was because we thought we would be in the middle of moving. Then it was close after vacation and I ripped up the kitchen counters, so no party. Oh well! Here is a shot from one of the [...]

Bye February!

I went to do a rehash of my February goals and realize that I never made any! Ooopsie! It was a bit of a busy month, so I guess I will give myself a pass on that.

We had a nice vacation to New Orleans and Colorado, but now I feel like I need another [...]
