Hoping for the best :)

Yesterday was nice. It was gorgeous out and practically summer, with a temp at a tropical 48 degrees (Fahrenheit, I mean. Which is a much harder word to spell than I would have thought. :p ).  It felt wonderful to get out and walk in the sunshine. I’m looking forward to more of that.  Which I won’t be getting today, apparently. *grin*

Today is an at home day-day of mundane stuff like taking inventory and running the vacuum.  I mentioned my goals yesterday, but I didn’t add a couple that aren’t related to my physical health. I’m making sure that I spend 30 minutes a day drawing, and 30 minutes a day writing (the blog doesn’t count toward that-this is its own thing. *grin*).  These are both things I’m relatively good at (grammar and punctuation aside, that is. *Snicker*), and they go a long, long way toward my mental peace of mind. And a good, full life is all about making time for the  things that are most important to you. So, that’s what I’m doing this week. 🙂

I have heard that we (Northern Indiana, for the curious) are in for one more stupid, mean, hateful snow storm. I’m hoping it peters out before it ever gets going, and gives us Spring instead. *grin*

I hope ya’ll have a great day, and it really does feel good to be back.


Happy Monday….and so it begins. :)

This week is, I’m sure, going to be crazy for most of us.  Today we set up the gallery for it’s Friday evening opening (Because who wants to do all this on Wednesday? No one. *grin*).  I really love working with the art gallery, but at the same time (and this is true everywhere, I’m sure), there’s one person who just drives me batshit.  

It is the Day of Scale, and I gained 1 pound (but I will let it slide, because it’s “lady fun time” week, so one pound is pretty good considering I am usually up three or four pounds on that week).  I have my plans for the week sorted out so I don’t get carried away *or* freaked out about food, except for today.  I forgot that I’ll be away from home for the better part of the day.  So, I’m having some greek yogurt this morning, and I will probably eat some oatmeal before I leave.  I’m taking water with me, and if we end up taking a super long time, I will grab a salad from the deli around the corner.

Planning ahead really *is* one of those things I feel like I’m constantly needing to get better with. 🙂

And before I go, I have one NSV to note today-This weekend, I had to, after hem-hawing around about it, put my wedding band away.  It’s officially too big.  I’d been wearing it on my pointer finger for awhile, but I’ve almost lost it in the toilet, down the bathroom sink, across rooms as I gesture.  It was time.  In the meantime, I’m wearing a sterling silver ring I made real quick.  There *are* benefits to being a jewelry designer, for sure. *grin*

I hope everyone has a great Monday, and I will be back tomorrow!

Mondays are kinda cool

Another pound lost on the Day of Scale (I love calling it that. Makes it sound like I’m on some sort of epic quest. *grin*), and I’m feeling confident and excited.

This is another short post-the big one will be up tomorrow. Tonight, I have some photos to situate for my Etsy store, and some practice for a custom order I got today.

It’s odd though, tomorrow’s post will talk about friendships and where they fit in one’s life and talking to the lady for whom I’m doing this new order just reiterated that this is an important subject and that some of the tougher choices I’ve made over the last year where the right ones. So, anyway, all of that dreck tomorrow. 🙂

I also just now realized that it’s the first Monday of the month. I forgot to measure, so I will do that first thing in the morning. 🙂

Have a good night folks.

PS. My stairs training is going good-it’s more fear of falling I think than physical weakness, so practice is doubly good. 🙂 Yay, stairs!
