Well, hello there.....welcome back.
I'm Sydney, in case you didn't know, and I am the official
Because I don't eat meat, I try to be sure I get enough protein in other ways.
How about a little shake?
A banana, some frozen blueberries, a couple of scoops of protein powder, and water.
I love my MAGIC BULLET.
I use it a lot. It was pretty reasonable, and it is easy to clean. That's crucial.
I have been trying to have at least one of these a day. It is easy to do, they taste so good.
I try to keep blueberries, raspberries and strawberries in the freezer. The frozen fruit makes for a cold, thick drink without bothering with ice.
SEVEN more followers, then the big giveaway!!!
And because I am a little crazy, and because it was a great suggestion by KATE, I am going to give the winner the rug style of their choice. Details when I hit 200!!!
We (Lois and I) are just trying to get through this cold weather at the studio. It isn't the warmest place. I suppose it would be if I turned the heat up everywhere, but it seems more sensible to turn it up in the rooms that we are working in. But when we walk through the other rooms, it is COLD.
Lois is working on blue jean place mats near the pellet stove, and she has just about finished that warp. The next warp will be the same width, but in tans and browns, for more place mats, and some smaller bags.
I treated myself and turned the heat on again in the back bedroom. Finished the red shawl, and started a dark turquoise one. It isn't as fast as weaving rugs, but it satisfies me in a way that weaving rugs doesn't.
It is good to be home in the evening. I will always appreciate how good it feels. Being a nurse for 30 years, I worked a whole lot of evenings. I like being home for dinner. I like having my after dinner cuppa tea with my feet up, my husband in his favorite chair, my dog on the other end of the couch.
No more coming out to a cold, sometimes buried, car at 11 or 12 at night, or worse, getting "stuck" to work all night because my relief didn't show up.
Instead of a dark ride home , I am tucked into my own warm bed. I love it.
Such a simple thing, one that I am so grateful for.
Thanks for the suggestions about my foot........I am not sure Birkenstocks would work.....aren't the heels pretty flat? I need a heel....and I do have a pair of Keen shoes. And I am exercising my foot. I should've just asked you guys, and saved myself $40 at the podiatrist.
Live and learn.
