They say snow coming this weekend.....sure has been nice this week here--no wind, snow melting, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Here's one from 2 nights ago:
I've been watching NCAA Bowl games this week....some of them so exciting, teams tied all the way, going into overtimes, nail biters to the end. :) My alma mater KState plays tonight in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. My nephew Brandon is on the team, so his family and my Mom all went to Dallas to attend the game and pre-game festivites. They've been sending me pics.....beautiful hotel and pics from the pep rally last night in Cowboy Stadium. I can't wait to watch it tonight! KState plays Arkansas, and both records are the same....10 & 2.
********* Go Kansas State Wildcats!!!*********
I've made 3 knitted dish cloths this week, and a beaded ankle bracelet, and started an eye-glass holder beaded necklace. It takes me awhile to plan the project and get the right beads, sometimes starting over a couple of times. Internet and my beading books and magazines provide inspiration, but ultimately, they are all my original designs.
My sister Pam sent me the link to join Pinterest, and have been on that alot...trying to figure out how it works. I've found alot of good ideas there, for every part of life....you can get sucked in and spend hours on there! My sister Pam, and cousin Jan, have made home-made laundry soap. Costs pennies to use and no chemicals. Uses Borax, Arm & Hammer Washing soda, and Fels Naptha bar soap. I think I'll cook mine up today! That Fels soap smells heavenly, but you can use any natural bar soap (like Ivory or your own homemade soap), or add essential oil to scent it. I am an essential oils nut, so maybe lemongrass or orange?
.....and have to brag a little....the scales are down this morning.... almost 2 pounds in 4 days. good job Diane! :) eating all those good veggies I bought in Buena Vista, very little meat and all that exercise. My short-term goal is to get smaller so I can keep up with my Mom and go swimming when I go visit them in southern California! I'll be dead white, but who cares? :)
Life is Good!
