Watch My Latest Painting Come to Life

Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

For my most recent painting, I did something kind of fun.  I took pictures of it in each phase along the way so you could watch it come to life. I had a custom order and was given a picture to paint.  The picture wasn’t very bright, but had a gorgeous layer of fog in the background floating over an old church.  Like always I used acrylic paint.  The main colors I used were raw […]

Health Challenge Results

Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Physical Therapy & Exercise

Well my six-week health challenge officially ended. Here is my workout board I used to log my workouts.  Each little colored square is an exercise I did.  That’s a LOT for this allergic-to-heart-rate-raising-activities girl! Here are my thoughts and results from the challenge: I am super proud of myself for being pretty strong with food choices (I gave up coffee creamer for six weeks!) and also working out as much as I did. After a couple […]

If you didn’t put that cryptic title together, I’ll help you.  We got a snowmobile.  Nothing fancy, just an old machine that works enough to haul us around. That husband of mine is always looking out for me.  Yes some could see this recent purchase as a toy for him, but honestly he did get this for me to be able to get around a bit on our property in the snow. With our newest […]

Big Medical Words / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

In December I had pink eye, which was really annoying.  It took forever to go away, which was really annoying.  Then my vision remained blurry forever more, which was really annoying. I called a couple weeks ago and made an appointment.  Today was appointment day. Personal Victory: For the first time in my life I was brave enough to do the air puff in the eye test. I finished the rest of the pre-testing then […]

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Hi friends.  Today I built a fire and narrated it with my Snapchat account.  Those who received it, seemed to enjoy it so I thought I should share with y’all.  I don’t know if this technically falls in my category funny farm stuff or hold my Gatorade and watch this.  A little of both I guess. I spy a Hero puppy… I suppose you could use something else too if you wanted. One of my […]

Hello friends.  The last few days have included some more winter prep around our house.  We ordered a custom snow plow blade to be attached to our tractor to make snow removal easier.  We went to pick it up a couple days ago.  It was about a five hour drive round trip.  My body actually held up pretty well.  I was pretty tired at the end of it, but I did a lot better than I […]

Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Physical Therapy & Exercise

I have officially graduated from physical therapy to a home program after about 10 months. What does this mean, exactly? I’m not fixed or better, but I do have a good understanding of my physical limits and I have demonstrated that I can appropriately do all of my exercises.  I earned my graduation t-shirt (in pink!) and my list of exercises.  I stopped and bought a new notebook for logging my exercises with a perfect […]

A Voluntary Needle?

Look. The last year of my life has been full of needles.   Blood draws, IV’s, and every single medic and nurse under the sun poking just to make sure I’m not in and out of consciousness due to blood sugar.  I’ve made some serious progress with my needle fear.  I used to never ever be able to go to get blood work done alone, and I always used to cry.  Not little kid scream and […]

As I’ve said before, I like garage sale-ing and hitting up barn sales, etc.  A couple months ago, Tom was laying in bed and looking on Craigslist on his phone.  He mentioned that someone was getting rid of an old door for free and that it was most likely gone already.  Just for kicks, I sent an email.  She said it was available and we could pick it up.  The reason I’m telling you all […]

I blame the whiskey. Here’s the thing.  While we were in Colorado visiting family, we went on a whiskey distillery tour. Ya, ya it was interesting and all, but the main realization I had was, why didn’t we get married in a whiskey distillery?  Man, the décor was just gorgeous.  I loved all of it.  The barrels, the lighting, the steel and barn wood accents.  See, look for yourself. Tell me that’s not gorgeous.  Plus, we […]
