What's On My Hooks, Needles, and Spindles:

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller .
One Row Lace Scarf
Stitches West 2014 Socks from the first yarn ever given to me by my son.

Bear 40, 41, and 42 for Mother Bear!

Dizzy Blondes: 

No spinning, due to sinus issues.


Do not mistake a polite and firm stating of a boundary as rudeness. You are allowed to have personal boundaries.

Put a Lid On It:

 I have noticed that I need yogurt to be happy. I do not, however, need to add much honey to my yogurt cups to enjoy them. Also, for one gallon of milk, I now use 1.5 cups of starter to get a thicker yogurt. And do be sure that your starter is fresh enough.

More applesauce made and canned as well. Happy sigh.

Nutribullet recipe:
1 cup almond milk
1 medium banana
2 T PB2
1/2 cup yogurt (my homemade, if available)
frozen blueberries or other frozen fruit
about a handful of greens--spinach, kale, beet greens, collard greens

Aw Shoot!

Back to exercise routine after all the fun of Stitches and 2 trips to San Diego. My Fitbit has been located! Up to 1 hour on elliptical. Using Map My Walk app to track walking and Runtastic to track runs. Both feed into My Fitness Pal.

My next race is March 15th.

Something I Really Like:

My Nutribullet. It is really just a fast, thorough, easily cleaned blender.
My new Iphone 5c. The GPS feature has been a lifesaver.
Namaste's mesh bags
The Lego Movie!


My son does a Lego presentation in San Diego. This was a great thing--the emphasis on teamwork was wonderful. And LEGOLAND was excellent!


I drank the potion and signed up for some Craftsy classes.

Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic on March 23rd!

Summer Mindfulness Retreat in Camarillo, CA--looking at June. $50 to attend.
Game plan:
Limited to 10-15 people
