Love this Weather....


.....the weather has just been too beautiful around here to get anything done "inside." I have all this stuff piled up to do - inside the house -- but I just can't bring myself to do it. Spring is in full swing - everything is blooming - stuff is growing unbelievably because it's really warm during the day -- and cool and breezy at night - and flowers (and vegetables) LOVE that. Every time I finish one area of the property, or a little corner, or get some vegetables in -- I find something else to do. Thank goodness it's rainy today -- that is going to force me to do some real "work" (real estate stuff) and then maybe this evening, I can finish some of my fiber"y" stuff.
I have a bag I've been working on that, at the urging of Monica (Girl-Gone-Thread-Wild), I'm going to submit for publication and tons of other stuff in the works.
My new lifestyle (see details on sidebar) is really kicking in and giving me the most unbelievable energy. I can't stop moving - I started out exercising every other day or so - now, I find myself "needing" to do it every day or I feel horrible. It's addicting. The protein shakes, and other changes I've made are really making a difference too. And muscle has incredible memory. There was a time when I taught aeorbics classes and worked out with weights almost everyday. Some of those muscles are starting to come back. There are days when I am so sore - I can't hardly sit down!!! THAT -- is a good thing. I never got sore when I was younger - no matter how hard I pushed.
Blaise is also doing it with me and he is doing fantastic. I won't harp on this cause bottom line - if you're not ready to do it - you won't be successful at it no matter what anybody says.
My class with Jane Sassaman was A M A Z I N G. What an earthy, gentle, and authentic artist she is. She was so inspiring and I learned more about myself, and my own style during those 6 hours than I have in the last two years. Can't wait to put some of that knowledge to work. Do yourself a favor, and visit her website and spend some time getting to know this fabulous lady.
Do leave me a note and tell me what YOU've been working on as I haven't even had much time to visit my bloggy friends. I really wanna hear about -- whatcha' workin' on, whatcha' readin' and where ya' been?????????
Carpe Diem!!

I am so jealous of the nice weather. I am so craving some sun. Every once and a while I fantisize about moving to a tropical climate.

Congratulations about the exercise regime!!! I'm trying to add some exercise to the routine. I have a pedomiter and get a smily face on the calendar if I make it to 10,000 steps. The big goal is to get back down to pre-fourth child pants. I'm not ready to give up my touch of sugar each day, though.

Hey Cathie,

I sent you an email, but my computer seems to be acting up, so I don't know if they are going through. I'm up for a trade any time. Let me know what you would like to do.
