While my absences from blogging have very often been a result of feeling bad, the latest absence was nothing of the sort. I’m feeling so energized these days – kind of like I could take on the world. I haven’t been eating perfectly “on track” but I also haven’t been eating garbage or binging – that’s success in my books! Eight pounds down, and…well….lots to go – but I’m okay with that.
I’m already eagerly anticipating spring’s arrival, and plan to start my seeds for the garden this weekend, and get started on raised beds for the garden in the next couple of weeks. This time of year you’ll find me dreaming about home improvement projects, things to do around the yard, and spending copious amounts of money on vegetable seeds and garden gadgets I don’t really need. We have a huge yard, and I while I sometimes I wish we had a small postage stamp lawn that could be perfectly kept, that would mean no room for the kids to play, and no room for sandboxes and wood swing sets.
Am I the only one who’s officially done with winter? This afternoon’s sunshine was so invigorating, and the whole house ended up clean – imagine that! I’m actually OFF tomorrow, and I have plans to make chocolate chip cookies with Mimi and I want to tackle a new recipe tomorrow. I’m not sure yet what that will be, but I am in the mood to experiment! Any suggestions for something fun to cook or bake? Nothing’s off limits!
