Giving In To Temptation!!!
Friday, September 10, 2010      12 comments

I've thought of little else than the little greyhound, how she's effecting my work, and how inspiring I find her (and her breed in general). This morning my mom and I had a long talk, and agreed that both of us want to adopt her. So, I'm wa... Read more
Tempted By A Greyhound

Yup, you read that right. Gryffin's been gone since April, and I miss him like crazy. I didn't realize how much until I spent the last month designing greyhound artwork for Dewey Beach. I have five Italian greyhounds. They're adorable, snuggly, ... Read more
I Have Bones
Monday, August 30, 2010      7 comments

I'd forgotten how bony the human foot is. Lately I've noticed that my ankles are really sharp, and the long, skinny bones that go to the toes stick up when I move my foot. And I have ribs. I know, I know, of course we have bones. But I had forgo... Read more

They're problematic, aren't they? It's such a stereotype. You buy a machine (or two or three) and they end up sitting in the garage. What with the heat and humidity this summer I've rarely been getting outside to hike, so I've started looking at... Read more
My Shirts Are Too Big!!!
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      11 comments

When I look at myself I have a tendency to see how much work I still need to do. However, I really have come a long way. I'm wearing a t-shirt today that I wore a lot last year. It was just about right at that time, or perhaps a little tight. No... Read more
Changing My Environment

I haven't been sleeping well lately. And I've realized that I spend the whole day with the TV on. I've been watching those crime scene shows with all the disgusting, creepy serial killers on them. CSI, Law & Order Special Victims Unit, and so on... Read more
I'm in a food rut
Monday, August 09, 2010      7 comments

I'm still eating healthy, but I find myself eating the same few meals over and over again. I need to build up a repertoire of new dishes that exclude meat. I guess I've always tended to repeat meals a lot. I go through phases of wanting a small ... Read more

I am having SO much fun!!! I got my new website up. It'll be awhile before I have the gallery put up because most of my new work is in progress. But it shows a little of what I'm doing, as does my new page layout here at SP. It gives inform... Read more
A Lot Going On
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      6 comments

I have so much going on that I don't even know what to say. I've been wanting to blog for days now, and would get stuck deciding where to begin. So I'm just going to begin. I don't know where, and I don't know what will come out ... stream of co... Read more
That Ticker's Moving Again!!!

This morning I broke below 170!!! I LOVE it when that middle digit changes!!! I was 171 before I went to New Hampshire, having lost 3 pounds in the previous week. While gone, I gained those 3 back. Now I've lost those three plus 2 more, setting ... Read more

The last of the three pounds that I gained on vacation are now officially gone. Furthermore, I think I'm a half to a full pound down from that, but have not gotten a good weighin yet. Yay!!! What a relief. Next week I'm headed to Cape Cod ... Read more

We heard from the home insurance folks today and they've approved the replacement of the air conditioning unit. YAY!!! They told us it would cost a couple hundred dollars to dispose of the old unit, but I called our town's public works departmen... Read more
Good News and Bad News - AC again
Wednesday, July 07, 2010      5 comments

The air conditioner guys have been and gone. We still have no working air conditioner. That's the bad news. The other bad news is that we don't know when we will have one. The good news is that they finally acknowledged that the entire unit need... Read more

While I was traveling through Massachusetts recently, I discovered a place called Fresh City. They had a frozen fruit smoothie that was to die for. I wrote down the ingredients, although I don't know quantities. Note that the ingredients I found... Read more
