OK do any of you out there with blogs find that after you have posted your entry and go back to reread and that you totally missed a boo boo. I usually read my posts at least 2 times and always do spell check. I'm always amazed at how I miss something. Like in one of my posts where I meant to say mo jo and said mo go, LOL. I guess I'm reading to fast and it just goes to show you that what I'm saying in my head isn't always what I'm typing, LOL. So I hope you forgive sometimes what is really poor writing.
We have a new scrapping buddy this year, Hi Leslie :). This is our year of self discovery. Lib and I noticed when pulling pictures for our son's wedding video (we each had one get married in the last 2 years) how few pictures we as Mom's where in. We're always the ones behind the camera and hardly ever in front. That got us thinking about how invisible we looked in those younger years of our kids. Which lead to a lot of different discussions, some on a deep level. Last year we did a challenge for one day each month by taking 12 pictures during that particular day of a day we choose to highlight. This year we are doing 9 pictures for the month to signify things that happened during that month. Like today I had a dye job "aka" color enhancement
I told my stylist that I needed to take a picture of the mess on her station. Then I had to explain why, LOL. That's where the pictures of the frost from the other days post came from. That's going on my January page because we've had several pretty days like that.
In addition we are going to have a challenge of a personal level. This months assignment which needs to be done before we meet in February is going to be"10 Things I Love". Now of course you could list your family, but we feel thats just a given and we need to dig deeper about other things that we love at this time of our lives. Try it and see if you could list 10 things right off the bat that you love, family not included. Like Leslie loves her auto start for her car. Lib loves her black cupboard and I love my new camera. Anyway I will give you a peek when I get mine finished. We have some fun challenges planned for the year and we all look forward to figuring something out about ourselves.
Did you know that you can get this done
have spirals put on quilt books, or any books I guess, it's not exclusive to quilt books. Anyway one of the peeps did this and showed some of us the way, LOL. I LOVE Kim's books and one of them was showing some wear in the spine area, so I took the 3 books in and for 2.95 each I got them done and LOVE IT. This is the next project I want to do and make it out of my stash, it's from her new book Simple Seasons
It will be a great hand applique project and it's so CA-UTE. Reminds me of the project that Libby's working on.
So the official loss for my 2nd week weigh in was 2.6 pounds. I was really pleased with that. I even ate out 2 times last week. I know it will slow down, but I'm really trying to make this a change in lifestyle for once and for all. You know enjoy life when something fun comes along and behave when life is just humming along. That's one of my personal goals for this year and there will be good days and not so good days, but I'm hoping the good will outweigh (did I just say that) the bad. AMEN on that note.
Until Next Time
