Weight Update

Don't you hate losing a whole blog post when still in the middle of writing it? Seems to be the way my whole day is going! On top of that first question.... don't you hate when you  learn stuff after the fact? More on that question, you  will understand as I go along. Weight update~ 4 LBS I have been eating what I like   for months now, and with that over the winter months I put on 4 lbs.....I know, heaven forbid! Last week I cut out sugar and  breads for 5 days and dropped that weight. But by doing that I must have reset my body again so after 5 days when I fell off the wagon I found that  the ugly DUMPING feeling was back. Yep, I ate a couple of small (tiny) blueberry muffins I made (cause I wanted them)...and  I thought I was dying! I got dizzy, felt sick and  my heart was racing like crazy. SUGAR rush I guess. But here comes the issue with  not having all the info up front.... I had no clue that gastric bypass surgery could lead t

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Back to usual kitchen gadgets. Hot dog anyone? Yesterday I had an appointment in  Lebanon (25 mins down the rd). I grabbed my big camera before leaving the house. Took these below when I was leaving the barn. On the way home from the  barn I saw this guy fly up in the tree. BUZZARD. The local church and redbuds. I always heard March winds bring April showers and April showers bring spring flowers. March had some winds.....but more rain, so this saying is off a bit!    Here is hoping you have a nice, warm, sunny day. Rain is moving out today and it is supposed to be a tad cooler, mid 50's. Sunny tomorrow and rain again Sunday.  If you have not been by to check out the furbabes check them out now at~

Project - Luggage Rack

Check out this that I ran across on Pinterest ... Love it.  Although Sandra and I  discussed the issue on FB, not good for folks with OCD. Then I found this one....thought it was burned on but I think it is  done with stain. Pretty neat.... Now on to my project. You know I love projects when I  feel up to doing them.  This one is simple and easy. Although it has taken me a  couple weeks between steps... A friend I went to school with and  had not seen in years hit me up on private message on FB asking me if I wanted two of these  directors chair. She figured  I might have a project for them. I started with removing the  back part from the bottom part. Which leaves this. Now what thought pops in your head when you see this? I took my Spic and Span  and wiped it down. (love this and Pine Sol) So I had thoughts on what I was going to do but I needed to purchase a couple of pieces..

Easter and This and That

HAHA my youngest grandson, Braden! We did Easter last weekend for the boys. The future son in law had his kids and my daughter had hers. Braden and I played cars while we waited on dinner. We had cake at the Easter dinner for my future SIL....his bday was  Monday, he likes the Jets. Yesterday I stepped outside to hear  the knocking noise of a  woodpecker. I looked up to see a female woodpecker. Mr. and Mrs Woodpecker live around my home somewhere. In the yard. While checking out my Hosta yesterday I noticed this... The leave of my Hosta came up through an old fall leave.  Love nature. Pollen in the creek. Last yr my daughter got me a lily and I noticed it was coming up yesterday and it appears to  be spreading! Shot of the shed from the  driveway. Found this on PINTEREST... I sent it to Chris (owner of the barn)...he has one of these in front of the barn.
