Felted Cat Afternoon

I've been sick all week.  Nothing flashy like the flu or Norovirus, just an old fashioned, miserable cold.  Which means I have had some time on my hands.  I finally read Gone Girl.  And I decided I need to needle felt some cats.

Jumping on the Smoothie Bandwagon

Everybody is making smoothies these days.  Maybe it's a new year resolution thing or just the newest fad.  While it seems like a great way to get a lot of nutrients, smoothies can have a downside too.  Many recipes recommend using an excessive amount of fruit juice (lots of sugar without the fiber, etc.) and one "serving" can end up totaling two to three times the calories you would have had with just a bowl of oatmeal.  So, I approach the whole thing slowly, cautiously, and with a lot of skepticism.

I don't really want too sweet of a smoothie so

Feeling Fantastic!

 OK, there is something I have realized about myself that I would have been shocked to have discovered just a few short years ago: I like rules. 

It turns out my husband and I both like rules.  As in, 'Let's not drink alcohol for the entire month of January!'  'Let's eat only vegan food for at least 3 weeks in January!'  'Let's cut out white sugar!'  Still working on the white sugar part, more on that later.  But doing great on the not drinking and eating vegan.  And, not a big surprise here, feeling really fantastic.

Playing with Corgi Video

My husband bought me a video camera, a Sony HDR-CX220 for Christmas because he knew I was interested in making video tutorials.  Here is my first, very rough, attempt at video editing.  The Windows movie maker that came on my computer is pretty useless.  I am going to need a much better editor to synch up music and make more interesting edits.

But you have to start somewhere, right?
