Making progress

I just LOVE Pinterest and one of the items on my 101 Things list, is to do something I've pinned on Pinterest. Due to DH being ill last year, I missed several months. In fact, I missed almost a year. When I WAS working on my list, some months I did more than one thing. Now that I'm getting back on track I'll probably continue to do more than one thing. You can see my lists on this site posted in Feb. 2013. I'm slowly getting things done when I have the energy.

Ya'll know I love make-up and nail polish. pretty much all things girly. LOL. I've been buying quite a bit of make-up lately, so for the month of May I'm going on a self-imposed moratorium on buying any make-up. That includes nail polishes. Which I also love. My latest acquisition is Bikini so Teeny by Essie. It's currently sold out on the site, but is available in brick and mortar stores. I got mine at a local Walgreens. It's a beautiful cornflower blue. OH. my. goodness. is it a gorgeous shade of blue!

Okay. So. Holy Crap. I just tried to go to Webshots. And it isn't there. I suppose at some point I was sent an email, saying it was going away, but I don't read emails much anymore. Maybe I should. LOL. Now, I've got to try to remember what was there and find all the pictures I had on there. I think I was a paying member, I can't remember. Auto-payment maybe? hmmmmmmm I'm off to check out the new site, I'm sure (I hope!) they didn't just delete all the photos.

Keep on keeping on

Ramblings and Obsessions

Three things I have been obsessed with this week:

I've been going to Weight Watchers meetings for the past few weeks.  I'm down 16.4 pounds.  I'm really psyched.  I'm under 200.  It has been a while.   LOL  DH and I have Weight Watchers Wednesday where we try a new WW recipe each Wednesday.  Last Wednesday we had lemon pasta. OMG It was so good! We have a 8 points plus salad a couple of times a week.  I'm looking to put more WW recipes into rotation. 

I changed from FeedDemon to Feedly to read blog posts. Issues with FeedDemon. I haven't found a reader I'm completely in love with. I do like that I can use Feedly on my iphone though.

I missed my blogaversary, but oh well.  Wasn't the first time!  Probably won't be the last! LOL

Keep on keeping on.

Still Trying

to get back to blogging on a regular basis. I know, I know "Do or do not, there is no try" LOL Lots of things I have wanted to blog, but just didn't get around to doing it. Just random topics.
My husband is still recovering, the doctors say it could take a year or two. Seems like it's been years since he was in the hospital. That period of time last year still seems so surreal.

I've done a couple of things on my 101 Things list.
25. Re-start Weight Watchers.
33. Install or build a fire pit in the backyard. I've bought one, but won't put it in the backyard until we have some yard work done.

I'm trying to arrange an area where I can take pictures of my projects. This small house just isn't picture taking friendly. And my front and back yard are a mess, because I haven't had time to take care of them. I just don't seem to have enough time. I get tired quickly and it seems to take longer to do tasks than it used to. Just not going to give up though. I know eventually, even if I have to hire help, it will get done.

Lots of stress from my job. Something new to deal with everyday. I am grateful I have one, but I'm part-time with no benefits. Thankful hubby has good insurance.

I try to read blogs for a few minutes each day and comment. I was using Google reader, but since it is "closing" I went back to FeedDemon. I had it on my old computer and liked it. I don't know if bloggers can tell if you are following them if you use it though.

Looking forward to sharing again!
