I made a mess this morning........10:11 AM
Well good morning everyone, see the sun shining through the tree in my backyard? Am I the only one that actually squints when looking at the photo? *snicker*
Anyway, come on in and have some hot coffee, I have to tell you about the BIG chocolatey mess I made and instead of cringing at the thought of having to clean it up, I actually can't wait to shove the mess into my mouth. Am I making you sick?
Cause there's really no reason for it, the mess I made is a good kind of mess, it's a chocolate and peanut butter mess, one that you leave cooking in your Crock Pot the whole day and then when it's done you slap on a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and oooohhhh and ahhhhhh in the corner.
I've made two recipes on the new slow cooker and I'm LOVING it, but I'll tell you all about it tomorrow since it's Slow Cooking Thursday.....you didn't forget did you? Hope not, I would have to have to come track you down at your house and type up the recipe for you on your blog, it's just unnecessary work for me you know LOL
Tonight Curt has another meeting at the Housing Office, they'll be doing a lottery drawing to determine our new home. Really? A Lottery Drawing? Couldn't they just give out the houses? I mean I am never one to win anything so this frightens me, what if we get stuck with the cruddy house that nobody wants? No but really, we will probably end up with what we want because we seem to be the only ones that are happy with keeping one of these older houses, everyone else is scrambling for a new house, they even offered us money to trade if we get one LOL
So by tomorrow we should have an idea of where our new house is and when we can move in, that will determine whether we do it this coming week or have to wait until the end of March for it.
I'm an impatient woman, I don't want to sit around waiting, if you give me the keys to a new house, just step out of the way cause I'll move in right away.
Do you like candles? Do you have tons of those little Glade candles around your house, or is that just me? I'm addicted to those, they smell so good, my favorite are Angel Whispers and Clean Linen, so I have them in the kitchen, the living room, the hallway, the bathrooms, my bedroom and even the laundry room and if it weren't weird to society, I probably would carry them around with me too LOL
But there's a downfall to all those candles because once they've run out I used to throw them out and then the other day I looked at the little glass container and thought "Why am I throwing this out, I can use it", so this may not seem like much but now I realize that they're so useful for tons of things.
These I used in the bathroom, one for my random make up that seems to take over and the other for qtips. And it looks cute, I've got a couple more ready to use, I'm thinking in the kitchen, in the office area as a pencil holder, by the front door shelf where spare change tends to show up. See, there's SO many possibilities for these, so next time you have a Glade candle laying around, don't throw it out, wash it well in some soapy water, remove the label and put it good use.
I'm even thinking, some glue and some cute ribbon or ric rac.....
I started exercising yesterday and I'm so sore, nothing like knowing that you're unfit, makes you feel even older. But anyway, last year I got the Slim in 6 Weeks DVD's and resistance thingies ( I can't remember the name), never used it, just completely forgot about it, but recently I started noticing that no matter how hard I try I can't seem to loose weight as fast as before. Yes, another one of those age things......doesn't matter that I've been drowning myself in water and hitting the bathroom every 5 minutes, apparently that alone doesn't work anymore. What to do, what to do?
I got it, bring out the Slim in 6 program, start it and breathe and push through the 30 minutes, realize you hear your heart beating really fast and loud in your ears, but keep pushing through the pain radiating through your thighs and calves because Hey...it's all worth it right?
So I sit here right now, it hurts to walk, it hurts to stand and it even hurts my toosh to sit, but I'm not backing down, I'm putting on my sweat pants and going right back to doing it again this morning, my weight may be stubborn but I'm even MORE stubborn. Hopefully I start loosing weight soon!
I'm leaving you again with some pictures of the sky. You know how you see the vapor trails from the airplanes? I never really noticed it back in Idaho, but for some reason there's a lot of them here and today it seemed that a HUGE airplane had just gone by, it wasn't this little pin thin stripe of white vapor, it was this fat, wide one all across the sky.
And here's some of our pugs Bella and Lola, they're just so cute.
