Fish Training: That Was Fast!
Sunday, April 10, 2011      7 comments

Well, getting the betta to sit on the "leaf" was easier than I expected. I'm starting to get him used to the idea of purple ring = food. I was hoping to use that to lure him into sitting on his floating "leaf". Apparently, it didn't take ... Read more

It's was a lovely day in the South. Today we went for a walk on the beach. On the way home, we stopped for dinner at Five Guys. We both had the 'little burger', shared fries, and a zero calorie drink. Total calories was approximately 600 cal... Read more
The Cat is Munching My Chives!
Friday, April 08, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday I caught one of the cats chewing on my chives. There were a few chives that looked shorter than they should be. Silly cat! I read that onion and garlic based plants can cause health problems in cats. I'm going to have to get an... Read more
An Update on my Friend's Cancer
Thursday, April 07, 2011      4 comments

I just got the word on my friend's cancer. I dared not ask him directly what his prognosis was because I didn't want to sound like I was asking, "So how long do you have to live?" Fortunately he volunteered the information today. He has a ver... Read more
Making your weakness your strength
Thursday, April 07, 2011      2 comments

(Sorry about all the blog entries. I'm just feeling inspired to write.) A week ago, I posted a status update that said something like: "Take your greatest weakness, and make it your strength." What did I mean by this? This actual... Read more
Dancing with the Stars
Thursday, April 07, 2011      10 comments

I'm a fan of dance shows. When I was little, I used to watch Solid Gold, Star Search, and even Lawrence Welk with my mom. I can't dance myself being rhythm impaired, but I always appreciated the grace and the athleticism. I have pretty st... Read more
I Feel Like Such a Heel

We're getting married next year, so it's time to get a hustle on organizing. We've at least finally settled on a rough plan of where and when. We want to do a destination wedding because neither of us really want to do the work of getting a ca... Read more
I Hate My Hair
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      9 comments

I have the weirdest hair. In high humidity, it goes curly. In low humidity, it goes flat. It's impossibly thin and prone to breakage just by brushing. I want to get a wig. Seriously. It's pre-styled, and looks the same everyday. No hav... Read more
How I Solved Our Dispute
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      7 comments

Earlier I wrote that the SO declared this morning he was on a diet, and had a list of how he wanted his food prepared. Everything sounded right on target, until he said he didn't want any more fried food. This came as a surprise to me. Fri... Read more
We're on Diets (and a rant)

This morning the fiance came into my computer room and declared he's on a diet. He gave me a list of how he wants his meals prepared. 1) Meats no larger than 3 oz. Sounds good. Check. 2) Small portions of starch. Check. 3) Lots of ve... Read more
Patio Gardening Tips
Monday, April 04, 2011      3 comments

Urban gardening isn't new, but it is relatively new to me. When I lived in Colorado, the weather was too extreme for planting. When I lived in Washington, I didn't have a sunny balcony. Last year I experimented with patio gardening. I di... Read more

Looks like I'm on track for delicious salsa this spring/summer! I posted pictures of my balcony garden yesterday. This morning I went to check on my tomatoes, and they are popping with fruit and flowers in the Georgia sun. I bought the pl... Read more
