What a Nut!

This is what happens when I fall asleep on the couch. I woke up and couldn't find Finn anywhere. I searched high and low. I finally found him....hiding in the bathroom eating a sweet potato that he stole. Good grief!!

Lisa's Stitching, and a Finn Update!

Good Sunday morning to you all!

I made a page called "Lisa's Stitching" that you can find alongside my other pages. My friend Lisa stitches some amazing pieces, but she doesn't have a blog. I took pictures of them a few weeks ago to post here....someone should see these amazing finishes! Sorry that the pictures was dark out and I was impatient LOL!

So Finn is 12 weeks old today!!! He makes me SO happy, I love this puppy. I can't believe I've only had him for a feels MUCH longer! He drives me nuts biting and whining and stealing everything in sight, but we're working on it :-) Here are some pics!

Oh, Jax, How I Love You!

So. Who's heard of Sons of Anarchy? It's a show about a biker gang in California called Sam Cro.... (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original).

I started to have a pretty annoying cough a month ago after an 18k run in -15 degree weather. I thought it was a cold, but it's just kept getting worse. Since Monday I haven't slept for more than 2 hours a night because the cough is constant. Then...yesterday...I got to work, coughed, felt a pop and then stabbing pain under my ribcage. I could hardly stand up, breathe, sit down, and coughing was unbearable. I was lucky enough to get an appoitment at the day clinic yesterday afternoon and long story short, I'm now on antibiotics for a bacterial lung infection, an inhaler because my lungs won't stop spasoming, and a pain killer because I tore the muscle under my ribs. Holy....friggin....PAIN that torn muscle is causing!

So I have nothing to do but lay on the couch and watch Sons! Woohoo! Watching Jax strut around in all of this sexyness is making me feel sooooo much better. It's strange that I love this show I suppose....but I do have a soft spot for bikers. My parents were park of the biker gang world for the 10 years before I was born and most of their friends now are bikers and retired bikers. Maybe it makes me feel at home or something. If only a real life Jax would come my way LOL! And Katey Segal plays the badass wife of the club leader and is Jax's mom....which is hilarious, I'm totally loving seeing her as a total badass bitch. Not used to that!

A Tasty Treat Fakeout!

Good morning everyone! Thought I'd share a recipe for a super-sweet treat that is all-natural and insanely healthy.

Chop up 2 big handfuls of pitted dates. Throw them in the blender with the juice of 2 lemons. Add a splash of water to get things moving and blend until smooth-ish....chunks are okay. Scoop out golf ball sized portions, roll them around in unsweetened coconut and let set in the fridge. Enjoy!

February WIPocalypse!

Hey everyone!!

I've only been working on The Bookshelf this past month, and I'm determined to get it done! Here it is before....

...and this is it as of last night!

One of my friends from running and I started getting together to stitch. It's made a huge difference because it forces me to actually take the time to sit down and work on something, which is awesome. Her name is Lisa and she does a lot of amazing stitching. I'm going to make her a page at the top of my blog this weekend with pictures of all of her finishes....make sure to check it out!

She and her Mom made me this Q-Snap's super cute!
