ahhhhhh love that sun....... feels soooo good......
what? ... I'm melting?... uh, oh..... too much of a good thing.
.... by the time he got to this size and shape, he reminded me of Snoopy... and it was only noon. I couldn't watch. Mr. BV called out to me that his head fell off about two hours later... I couldn't make myself look.... he was pretty cute while he lasted... and fun to see through the window...
Last year at this time I was in about the same mode. Lots of cleaning and re-arranging taking place. I think it must be a New Year thing as I am reading the same on a lot of blogs. Not a bad way to begin each year. Carolyn mentioned that it makes us feel almost smug to accomplish our little projects... especially the cleaning and re-organizing ones.... how true! It feels great.
Now... it feels like the perfect time to move on to something else.... not sure what just yet....but, something......
We had such a balmy day today... it got up to +14 C.... which is like some of our summery days.... it was great. Same again for tomorrow.... love it. By Friday it will be back to minus numbers... but, what the hey ... it's still winter for a few more months here so it will be back to normal for us.
Both of us and some neighbours celebrate birthdays within a month of each other so we had a night of nibblies. I made quesadillas... they were yummy
... we had some wine...... and .... cake. Oh, yeh...the best carrot cake ever. Our little birthday tradition... hunnybunny bakes mine...and then I bake his.
Yum!! I choose carrot because it's my fav....with real cream cheese icing.... and his is always chocolate. Sometimes the second cake doesn't get baked for several months, because hard on the heels of all the Christmas "goodies".... it just seems to be too much. Besides.... along with all the cleaning and re-organizing....I am now on my 18th day of working out and trying to get in shape for golf season.
This photo a day challenge has been doing double duty. Somehow I have managed to combine it in my head with my plan to get back to a daily workout routine. It's working. Well, not actually working wonders yet in the "noticing anything drastic in changes to my body" department, but, my strength is definitely increasing... a few pounds of softness have exchanged places with some muscle.... little things. But... I'm happy that it actually seems to work as a reminder to do some exercise. Having the challenge just be simple enough to use as a daily inspiration is great. A photo a day.. with or without words... perfect. Takes off the pressure at a time of year when lots of folks need some time to get "stuff" in order and can't find extra time to actually dream up blog entries.... or even want to try... Linda dreamed up the perfect way to ease into the new year.
