#13 – 60 DAYS

60 days into the New Year and this will be my 13th post.
What the heck??
Chalk it up to everyday life. This winter crud that seems to make never-ending rounds to my home. No motivation. Writer’s block or any number of other projects taking over my life at the moment.
Whatever the reason, I seriously need to rectify this.
Apparently, Fuxatawney Phil saw his shadow and was correct in his prediction of 6 more weeks of winter. At least for us. We still have snow on the ground.
Side Note:
Wouldn’t it make more sense that if the rodent saw his shadow that would mean the sun was shining thereby indicating bright sunny days and an early spring ahead?? I mean if he pops out and it’s dark n’ gloomy, seems to me that would be the indicator of 6 more weeks of winter. What do I know?
This winter has been a tuff one out here in Boise. Way more snow than we’re used to in a city not equipped to handle it or the subsequent flooding that we get warned about every single day. Maybe it’s summer I’m ready for and not necessarily soggy, wet, possibly flooding, spring.
I’ve definitely caught the winter crud more this past winter than any winter before. Seriously, I think every bug that’s floating around lands on me and boom. I’m coughing and hacking and aching everywhere! My Dr. says it’s just crap going around and she thinks my liquid – protein shakes – diet is not helping. She’s an advocate for real food so for the sake of my lungs, sore nose from blowing and my ears, I think I may have to step up the menu.
For Lent this year I’ve decided to do the ’40 Days, 40 Bags’ challenge and declutter my life a bit. Literally. You can Google the challenge. Basically, you’re just getting rid of 40 bags of whatever it is you don’t want/need at your home. Either toss ’em or take ’em to Good Will.

This took a couple of bags.
Hey. Don’t judge. It’s the all things fast food/pizza/catalog drawer. Ideally, we’re supposed to use these coupons and I’m certain I was going to order a couple of dresses out of those catalogs but clearly none of that is happening as evidenced by this drawer.
2 bags down 38 to go!
I’ve also been making wine glasses and mugs and other fun stuff with my wonderful Cricut that I am still so very much in love with.
Here are two stemless wine glasses I made today for a couple of friends back in Michigan who spend lots of time on the water.
I feel like I’ve been away forever. Kinda’ weird getting back into the swing of things but I’m making the rounds and catching up.
Here’s to a lovely March ahead.
Ours came in like a lamb. I can’t imagine it going out like a lion tho but then again, I didn’t imagine we’d have as much snow as we’ve had. So again, what do I know?
What about where you are?
Did your March come in like a lamb or a lion?

#7 – MEOW..

That’s what my Detroit Lion’s roar is sounding like tonight.
But ya’ know what? Kudos for a GREAT year Detroit. We were hoping for a lit’l Chicago Cubs magic but clearly the refs were not going to let that happen. And that’s not sour grapes. That’s the truth. If any of you followed the Lions at all this year, you know the refs were brutal.
Oh well. There’s always next year, right?
2017-detroit-lions-fan2017-divider-line-blue-icyThis will be a short post because I’m a lit’l tired and I want to get in bed n’ snuggle my pup. We’re supposed to get round two of snowmegeddon and who knows what that will bring. I went out today because the news said it’s supposed to be worse tomorrow.
This is pulling into the parking lot at Albertson’s to get some groceries. It’s wet snow too. Heavy and sloppy.
2017-snow-albertsons2017-divider-line-blue-icyI don’t often long to be on a tropical island but today I am longing.
Today I’ll take sand n’ sunshine by the sea over snow all over the place!

Be well everyone. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Stay safe!
