Thursday, January 15, 2009      3 comments

I blogged earlier about redoing the concrete floor in DD's bedroom... the saga continues. Yes, spent those hours stripping the extra epoxy, got some concrete primer, applied that and let it dry. So far so good... Then yesterday it was finally ti... Read more

Have a FEW minutes to write... Days 2 and 3 of bootcamp - did fine. Workouts pretty easy for me. Using 5# weights where those called for. Seems a good weight! Have been 'making do' since I don't have a stability ball. Today, I watched the video... Read more

Day 1 - did the video - it was really pretty easy, and I think I was doing it right! Looked on the fitness tracker and that one didn't show up - I hope they get it updated. There was 1 video w/ kickboxing, but it claimed to burn 70 cal in 10 min... Read more

It's that time of year and a good opportunity to reflect on the past year and set some goals for the new. I've never been much of a one for 'resolutions', but setting goals is different. Last year when I first started trying to get healthier, th... Read more

I finally got enough decluttering done that I could put up our little tree. It's on top of our buffet (which hasn't been used as such...) and looking quite nice. Last year w... Read more

I'm trying to make it a good day, regardless... My DH called me at 2:15 this morning, and that meant it wasn't good... He was parked at a truckstop, sleeping, and a new driver came in late, started to park in the spot next to my DH, and heavily ... Read more

I went outside with my camera this morning to see just what WAS blooming. Here are the plants that are boasting flowers. Especially vibrant are the Spider Lilies. I love the week or so that they are in bloom - so pretty! I was surprised to see t... Read more

I'm working on getting the backing up on the house side wall. Ran into a glitch today as I was putting up paneling. When the studs were put up, they weren't measured quite right and there isn't a stud where I need it to be. The luan doesn't lay... Read more

No pics today, just a report... The weather was beautiful today and I did take advantage of it. Too many interruptions, so didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but I did make it past a dangerous stall point and have started cutting the... Read more

Ok. It's been awhile since I posted an update here. Thursday I tried to cut some of my microfiber board to get started on shelves. I knew the table saw wasn't going to be very good for that - the board is far too heavy to be pushing it along, ho... Read more

Thursday afternoon I went outside to cut some parsley for a dish I was making for supper. There wasn't very much left! This pic is from Friday morning. I didn't have anything else in the garden that they would really want to eat, and given what ... Read more

Making progress! Got the textured ceiling paint on. Took 2 days for that because I ran out of paint. And unfortunately they don't sell it in 1 gallon containers, so to finish and area about 3'x10', had to spend that nearly $30 to get $10 worth o... Read more
