Today was a wonderfully productive day! But the best part was that it was productive and not stressful in the least! I woke up at 7:15-ish and went outside to the balcony to catch up on some of my Bible reading (I was on February 5th...ooops!). Then in the next 5 hours, I planted tomatoes and strawberries; made potato salad; cooked and cut a tri-tip; cleaned the kitchen, dining room and living room; read more Bible; swept and vacuumed the balcony, and finished off another few little things. WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!

To celebrate life in general, and beautiful faux-spring weather in particular, we walked over to Coldstone and got a Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gotta Have It!! We subbed the choc chips for Oreos and it was deeeelish! Then when we got home, I finished my dad's birthday present (a notebook full of geocaches).

What a splendiferous day!

I'm writing it down

There has been research done that says people who write their goals down are much more likely to accomplish those goals.

SO, this is the week that I will finish this dang stamped cross-stitch blanket that I started in April-ish of 2007. I bought it to make for Avery, so I want to finish it and put it in a box with a scrapbook for her. Of course, it won't have any pictures of her, but we'll put in pictures of the flowers that were sent, receipt for pregnancy test, journal entries that I wrote, etc. So that's one of the many projects I hope to start once this blanket is done!

Alright, back to cross-stitching :-D

My little "secret"

I have only shared this blog with, hmm, maybe 2 people?! It is really nice, because I have been using it more as a journal, and to look back at what I've done because I have such a terrible memory! I don't have to worry about offending, boring, watching my words, etc. It is just for me, and I love it!
