My Obligatory Blog of Randomness

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, June 08, 2013

This is my obligatory weekly blog. As a member of the Community Team, Iím supposed to post a blog every week. I enjoy blogging, so itís not a big deal. Thing is, Audrey and I had planned on shooting a vlog about choosing an adult-sized hula hoop--you know, show you all the tubing and stuff. But...we got rained out and then her social schedule got busy, so thatíll have to wait until next time.

So, this is my obligatory blog of randomness, since my planned blog went kaput. Um. Yeah, so...letís see--

Oh, Iím feeling so much better! Still not quite up to hooping, but this mandatory rest time is starting to pay off. Iíve been able to keep walking on the elliptical and take a couple of short walks in the neighborhood. I did the grocery shopping and was back in the kitchen this week. It was SO good eating healthy again! I wasnít even exasperated about cooking (I often am) because it felt so good to eat fresh, healthy, whole foods. I tried a bunch of new Spark recipes this week, from Spark Solution, Spark Cookbook and SparkRecipes. We ate some goooood stuff!


This was my version of Easy Steamed Fish Packets from Sparkís grill recipes.


This was my husbandís version of the same fish. LOL


Breakfast of the Champions!


Pancakes!!! Spark Solution has completely ruined regular old pancakes for us now. These are amazing; so are the protein pancakes. I kid you not. They taste like funnel cakes from the State Fair. Bliss, I tell ya.


Side note: Iíve been looking for a really good washboard for over a year now. My BFF finally found one for me. Iím SO excited! Iím gonna put all kinds of fun stuff on it and turn it into an amazing percussion instrument. Iím sure this will appear in a SparkWorthy vlog someday. :)

My awesome SparkBuddy REEBADABEEBOOS sent me the most fantabulous, guineapigeriffic cards and stickers Iíve ever seen. I just had to share one of them with you.


Is this not the best card ever?? All itís missing is a guinea pig hula hooping in the background. I taped this up on my Shelf of Awesomeness and I guarantee itís gonna make me smile every day. Thank you, Courtney!!

And last, I will leave you with this random piece of artwork we saw in a department store the other night.

Go do something astonishing! Bet you can surprise yourself.

    I thought the fish packets were some kind of a tree until I read the vlog. Now, I might even try them!
I'm glad to hear you are feeling better.
Take care.

    Shooot if I had known you were looking for a washboard, I'd sent you the one that is hanging downstairs on my bathroom wall (the bathroom is adjacent to the laundry, so I guess it's my back-up in case power goes out and I need to do the warshin' !! Plus there's an antique store about 2 miles away and they ALWAYS have such things...

    Do Chubbs and Pudding know there are GPigs out there stealing their gigs? I bet they're P***ed.
Because I never know what to expect in your blogs, until I read it, I thought the fish packet was some kind of cucumber sculpture that was a result of a creativity challenge. The truly great thing is it is entirely within the realm of possibility with you.
Can't wait to hear (and see) the washboard in action.
Thanks for sharing. May the goddess of randomness always be with you!

    Sheli, love the blog, Really Love the Hippity Hop Guinea Pigs and I am glad you are seeing improvement in your health from the taking it easy and off of hooping. You know I may be wrong but it seems like God has to knock us "do everything" girls on our beautiful Buttocks now and then to get us to slow down and smell the roses. My roses are sitting in the family room in front of the card table where I'm planting my flower baskets (which I have to say are usually quite done in May) because of the order to stay off my feet. I may not be able to be out at my garden but I can plant flowers!! Keep getting well my friend, a painless neck is a thing not to lose! Plus one of these days I will start trying some spark recipes, I am a "Spark Recipe Virgin" ! Susan

    I've been procrastinating on making a vision collage. Your "Shelf of Awesomeness" sounds interesting. Is it something you could post a picture of?

BTW-- I love your blogs!!
