chit chat chatter

Wednesday July 15, 2009

Going to try a conscious stream of thoughts for a post today. Haven’t been blogging much these days. Been busying trying to lose 10 pounds. Yup, 10. I really just want to fit into my old jeans. I miss them. So I have been eating better, trying to cut out carbs and gluten and sugar. But I still like mojitos WAY too much. Just ask Paige. I was a little tipsy the other night! I also go to LA Fitness. Just a quick 30 minute workout. This is hard when all I want to do is bake cookies and watch Ellen. But I have been slowly changing my routine and you know what?! It is getting easier to put on my ankle socks and new tennis shoes and walk the six blocks to LA Fitness. It feels pretty good and I even lost 2 pounds last week! I weight myself just once a week and also take my measurements (scary!). Have been eating amazingly well – summer produce is addicting and we pick up our farm share every Thursday and eat delicious snap peas, beans, lettuce, beets, turnips, kale, and green onions all week. I make egg salad and Thai turkey burgers and chicken salads with all the fixings and roast cauliflower and turnips and grill steak. The steak is from Whole Foods though.

Judy is a real sweet dog and she is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Next to Jake she is right up there. She is really into her new ‘old’ basketball that Mary gave her – it is quite challenging for her and has been known to distract her for 10-15 minutes in the backyard. She doesn’t even care about squirrels anymore. Just kidding. Let’s see what else…OH, I am really into sewing these days. Well, I guess just two pillows. But I finally figured out how the hell a bobbin works. The first pillow took me two days and a trip to JoAnn Fabric for a seam ripper BUT the second one took me only 10 minutes! I really had the hang of things by then. My next sewing project is covering these hideous chair cushions form my most recent chair purchase. Current chair count – 22. Holy Crap. Not all of them are upstairs but whoa! I might have a slight problem with chairs. Jake tells me this a lot. But I just love them. Jake’s Grandma Joy has the coolest chair in her porch. I am on the lookout for one similar. Not that I need any more chairs.

Well, I think I need to stop this rambling post now. At least I still have some chit chat chatter in me. Were you really worried? :)

happy 2nd birthday judy!

Strawberry Picking

We decided to go strawberry picking for our anniversary and it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day! The strawberries are addicting – luckily you can eat and pick!
