Remember my last post?
I was sitting here up in my chair watching the snow fall?
Well, it's a good thing I did sisters, cause that's the last time I sat still until this very moment!
I wish I had a report of exactly what it is I've been doing - but I don't.
You know - I haven't lifted a single knitting needle yet this winter?
There's only a week left of the meteorological winter!
However, I did redo my 'studio/pantry/catchall' room.
It's still evolving.
This photo from Pinterest was my inspiration.
The only money spent was a few dollars for the curtain on the desk.
I must say, I might like to paint the walls a lighter color in the near future - but right now - ain't nobody got time for that.
The program that I used to lose the 100lbs a couple of years ago, started up again on February 6th and I've been busy doing coaching there.
Aaron has visited.
I've cleaned the basement and have been selling anything that comes loose up on Craig's List and eBay.
Last happy Saturday morning, I woke up and found a puddle of water in my kitchen.
My barely 10 year old fridge was broken...again.
Fourth time since we bought it.
I thought of blogging and requesting donations.
Help me save the unborn chickens!
Save the milk!
Support the meat!
Within a whirlwind of 48 hours I had an empty bank account, 10lbs of thawed meat and new fridge sitting on my inside front porch - a half an inch too big to fit in the house.
I was nearly in tears during this -
Finally the beast was in.
She's a beauty, and the measured water fill feature has revolutionized my life.
The fridge is only an inch or two bigger than the other one, and yet it seems ginormous.
I feel like saying 'Welcome to my refrigerator' when people stop by now.
Just when I thought I could catch my breath, I got a heartbreaking call from the BoyChild - he was sick.
I had to go get him.
I had to.
He wasn't about to lay there alone and sick.
Not on my watch baby.
These are the days I'm so thankful I don't work full time.
102 fever - aches, pains, sore throat.
I got him situated on the couch and turned my attention to the 10 lbs of thawed meat.
Turkey Cranberry Walnut Salad
Turkey Noodle Soup
Roasted Garlic Chicken and Potatoes
He's on Tamiflu now, after a nose swab confirmed he has Influenza B.
He's had his eyes open for the last hour - it's the most I've seen the whites of his eyes since he's been here.
Guess who's sitting here now with a tickle in her throat, and eyes and nose itching?
So there ya have it.
A week (or two) in the life.
Better than a stick in the eye.
My next blog post is going to be a giveaway of two great new books about chickens from Storey Publishing!
Don't miss your chance to win!
