Beans, beans and more beans!

Wednesday, August 20, 2014      0 comments

So I've been busy canning beans the past few weeks and something happened last night- my bean shelf is FULL! While I'm not complaining at all- I'm just not sure where to put the rest of the cans! What a problem to have eh? And now.... CO... Read more

Here it is- sorry the pic isn't great, it was just a quick one on my phone and that's the only one I have with me.... Read more

Garden salads.... mmmmmmmmm

Love this time of year. Hit the garden last night and picked chard, spinach, red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce and onion. Couldn't bring myself to whack at the celery yet- maybe next week when it gets a little bigger. Have birthday cake... Read more

Ok, I've tracked food for the past 6 days... that may be a record for me. I'm going to try and continue to track and see what happens. I feel in general that I'm eating decent for me, guess once it's in writing we'll see for sure.... Read more

Wonder if I can drop the "not enough time" nonsense and get focused for real this time. Contest at work- but I'm avoiding that as I don't want it to be a 30 day or 60 day thing. I need to make this a life-long focus for me now! Sun is hittin... Read more

Canning already!

Monday, February 17, 2014      0 comments

Generally don't start canning until the snow is off the ground a month or so- but found some really nice asparagus on Friday. Mmmmm spicy pickled asparagus- have to love it! Between that and the Seed catalogs showing up, it must be Spring- rig... Read more

Last week of Insanity!

Tuesday, May 28, 2013      1 comments

While I can't say that it has gone by quickly, I have noticed that I seem to be getting stronger and our half point weigh & measure did show some progress. I think I'll hit the gym starting next week to keep things moving in the right direction... Read more

100,000?

Thursday, May 23, 2013      1 comments

Hit 100,000 SparkPoints this week and got myself the little gold crown now instead of the silver one. Seems like it took me quite a while to get between the silver and the gold- then again, maybe it was at the time when I was slacking off a lit... Read more

Cake, cake and more cake!

Added the cake pictures to my SparkPage. Have a couple of weeks before the next ones... time enough to relax and plan them out. Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!... Read more

Hit the garden last night and got a handful of green beans, some green onions and a nice big head of romaine lettuce- which may I say made a killer salad last night and I'm already looking forward to it tonight! Recovering this week from the c... Read more

The Garden

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      1 comments

Well, after hours and hours pulling weeds in the garden by hand, hoeing and raking the garden (because it's too wet to rototill) it's finally ready to go in. The rains (again) last night will make it a bit damp, but the wind today should help d... Read more

Spring?

Snow covering the ground here and I'm finding it hard to believe it's Spring!... Read more

Just a little line to say goodbye to my Uncle Tom. He was a kind man who will be missed. Rest in Peace Uncle Tom! emoticonRead more

When a win isn't really a win...

Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

So the official puts his arms in the air signalling a touchdown and the Lions get their first road win in something like 3 years.... Wait. Not so fast. Suddenly in what seems like a bad practical joke the play is reviewed and with someone ... Read more
