Lazy(ish) Days of Winter

Today was a pj only day! We did not leave our house (although the girls did play outside) or our pjs! LOVE IT! We put up the tree, made paper ornaments and I made another stocking.

I also made turkey chili. YUM!
The girls and dogs had a fab time in the fresh snow!

We played a lot of this:
I love this. I can't believe I waited so long before jumping on the Wii bandwagon. Didn't enjoy the BMI info, etc, but needed to see it.
I also joined Weight Watchers today and signed up for this:

That my friends is the starting line for the 2011 Shamrock Shuffle!!
Woot Woot! My first official 5k!
Go here to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society via The Making of a Runner's TNT fundraising sight. You could win some fab prizes!
If you are still hanging in. Thanks. That's a boatload of random information! If you have stuck it out, you will know I plan on having a bloggy giveaway in the next couple of days :)


  1. There are definitely 0 points in those apples ha! What a great day you had. That turkey chili looks amazing. i need to try wii fit. Love the pictures!

  2. I like the Christmas tree you have made...

  3. Is that a garden plan you are working? That is so much fun!

  4. I love it when I get to stay in my jammies all day! That turkey chili looks yummy!

    Good luck with weight watchers. I did it almost 2 years ago with amazing results.
    Signing up for your first 5K is awesome. My first 5K is by far my favorite.

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Proof that I occasionally finish what I start...

New throw pillow covers I made a couple of weeks ago! Finished and started the same day :)  (Sorry the pics aren't the greatest.) I love making these.  They are super quick and easy and are an inexpensive way to change your decor.  Yes, I realize that they don't match each other and yes, they are all on the same couch.  We have a sectional and they're spread out. Besides that, I am eclectic and my home reflects that about me! I'm going to try to take pics of my quilt top tomorrow (read: bribe Mike into doing it for me).  It's been sitting folded up in a drawer since last year. :(  I need to quilt it because: A. It's my first quilt and B. I love it and can't wait to use it!! I've been throwing a lot of love out there in the quilt world the last couple of days, because I am flat out with an injured back.  So to all of you whom I've visited or will visit, thank you.  You're keeping me sane!!  Trish
