#15 – NEVER COMPLAIN, NEVER EXPLAIN

Whoever penned those words was most definitely NOT a blogger.
Forgive me blogging world for I have sinned. It has been 67 days since my last blog post.
While I was gone…
I did not discover the cure for cancer but I did use sunscreen so that’s kinda’ close.
I also did not go tubing down the Boise River but I did go past the park that’s completely flooded by the Boise River, so again, close.
I met a total hottie while shopping at Whole Foods and then went back to his place and had wild Animal Planet sex!
Okay. I didn’t really meet a total hottie and go home with him to have wild Animal Planet sex… Kill joys
BUT… I was in Whole Foods and I did see a total hottie and I seriously thought about having wild Animal Planet sex with him!
So, yeah, I’m gonna’ count that as close too.

I started the Whole30 eating plan. You can read about the plan here.
Basically, it’s this –
Meat, fruit n’ veggies. No sugar, no grains, no dairy.
“Eliminate the most common craving-inducing, blood sugar disrupting, gut-damaging, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days.”
After 30 days you start introducing more foods back into your meals and then you
pick n’ choose which ones stay based on the way they make you feel after eating them again.

So far, drinking my coffee black seems to be the most challenging aspect of this plan.
I didn’t realize how much I reeeaaallly love my fancy coffees!
Other happenings –
A wedding and a new grandbaby in October! Can you say busy, busy, busy?!
Plus the daily/weekly –
Breathing
Meditating
Going to church
Getting healthy, physically, mentally and spiritually
Hitting the trails
Therapy
Reading
Aaand… Trying to stay in the creative zone with lots of creative irons in the fire!
Keeping it all in balance, cutting out the negative and basking in the positive.
Those are my goals.
In the words of Ferris Bueller
Here are a couple of the “creative irons” in the fire.
WIP (Work in progress) the first of many baby blankets for the new lit’l tummy nugget.
Bobble stitches and granny stripes. As soon as we find out if it’s a boy or girl I’ll add some color.
And, using up some scrap yarn whipping up some granny squares.
The “back” pic shows the weaving in of the ends with a tapestry needle. Sometimes I weave as I go. Whatever my mood. I really like the granny squares because they whip up so fast and you can do so many things with them.
I’m going to blog at least 3 times a week now. More if I can fit it in. I really enjoy it and I really miss it. And, I really miss all of YOU!
I hope you’re all doing well and I wish you all a fabulous week ahead!
Mimi’s quote for the day –

SUMMER’S HERE AND THE TIME IS RIGHT…

Yeah… There’ll be no dancing in the streets for this girl. Not in triple digit heat anyway. I like hot weather but triple digits is best enjoyed indoors with the AC running full blast.
I’m “prompting” my way through my blog this month.June 1-5 prompts are brought to you via a lit’l site I found called, ‘Writing Exercises.’

TODAY’S PROMPT – Write about an ornament.

My first thought, being a girl who loves all things Christmas was to post my favorite Christmas ornament. But, a.) Christmas is packed away. And b.) I’ve already mentioned Christmas once this month. I didn’t want to piss off the masses – that would be you, my beloved readers. –
So, I chose another favorite ornament.
This one.

It just happens to come attached to my favorite vehicle, which would be this one.
1966 Jaguar MK X.

With this 1950 Jag model coming in a close second.
When I hit the lottery you can bet I’ll be owning a couple of these.IN OTHER NEWS – I got nutthin’ folks. This week is gonna’ be all about staying cool and building my inventory for upcoming craft shows n’ the like. I got delayed on my blanket when my sister came to visit so I’ll be doing double time on blocks today, which means I’ll be doing double time with “Grissom” who I just find sexier n’ sexier which each episode.

I need to narrow down my blogging groups as well. I haven’t been posting in them because there are so many to post in and I’m trying to figure out the best fit for me. Until then, I blog for myself and you, my faithful readers.

Also need to work on my BuJo (bullet journal) and start another one for daily tasks, and another for my blogging. I dunno but the creative bug has bitten me hard lately and all I want to do is create n’ play like I’m in kindergarten again. And, FYI, it feels great doing it so Imma’ gonna’ do more of it.
I hope you’re all having an amazing day wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, and I hope you can find a moment in your day to play like you’re in kindergarten again.
Finger painting, coloring, recess, or eating paste!
I wanna’ know how you play like a kindergartener!
