Time is a Funny Thing



Time is a funny thing.  A minute is 60 seconds, but sometimes a minute feels more like 3 minutes and time slows down, or a minute can feel like 10 seconds and time speeds up.  One correlation… fun.  The more fun you’re having, the faster time goes.

Getting Out of the Gym

Getting out of the gym

Who else gets bored at the gym?   When I go, I normally pick the treadmill… because there’s a T.V.  That’s right I’m that person.  I’m content with weights, but I have a hard time with cardio at the gym.

Smitten on Saturday



Just wanted to stop in on this rainy day and let you all know how much I am enjoying my new espresso cup this morning 🙂

I only know two people who would sit down and have a cup of espresso with me (it’s not for the faint of heart, and stomach, especially when I attempt to make it), so I only bought two… but I just love them!

Did everyone finish cleaning out their fridges?  This weeks goal is to accomplish a few items out of your sewing pile.  Whether it be hemming that pair of pants or maybe just finishing that one project you may have started over a year ago but haven’t gotten back around to yet.

What will your sewing/mending project be?

The 2nd TO-DO List

Happy New Year Everyone!

I have a not so secret confession…. I’m a list maker, for everything from groceries and meals to projects and bucket lists.  I have sub-list on my to-do list AND a back up list.  Let’s talk about that back up list.  For me, it’s the list of thing that need to eventually get done after I finish the daily/ more important things on the starter list.  Now, they will never really actually get done because, let’s face it, I’m not nearly as fast as I think I am.  On to my New Year’s resolutions!

Oh those Brits

So this is the second time I’ve been apologized to for being cussed by.  Not at or to, but by.  There will be a couple girls at the gym chatting away, either next to me or in front of equipment I and everybody else needs, and in mid story after swearing, they have stopped, looked around and apologized to those nearby.  Yes, apologized!!!  Then went right back to the story.

Yes, I dare say, you should apologize for swearing in my presence; how dare you!

Tossing the Garlic

Went to gym today for yoga and got there early for a treadmill/ rowing machine warm up.  I am proud to say I was at a fast paced jog for a full 5 minutes!!!  Woot!!  Woot!!  I am not a runner, to say the least.

Then I came home and had enough, the garlic had to go.  Although I got my sprouts, they never scaped (yes, I turned that into a verb) and little no-see-ums moved into the dirt.  After leaving the kitchen bit after cooking each night, it was time to ditch the garlic.  So my garlic growing experience has been deemed a fail.  But I do have  some lemon seeds saved!
