I’m late

I’m late, I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!  (No, it’s not MY date.  It’s Boone and Tara’s–things are heating up in “Big Sky River” country, and nothing will happen if I’m not there.)  :)

I enjoyed a relatively quiet weekend, did some art, puttered, read, etc.  Not very exciting, I know, but my own personal brand of art therapy seems to restore me on all levels.  I did gobble up Leslie Rule’s book, “The Ghost in the Mirror”, on my Nook, along with a couple of collections culled from “Fate” magazine.  Must be the coming of fall–I’m into spooky stuff these days.

The D.I.E.T. is a bust, for reasons that would probably bore you to tears, so I’m switching to low-carb.  Stayed tuned for updates on that score.

Sister Sally is selling coats like crazy on etsy, at Thankful Rose.  I’m so proud of her–that woman can SEW.  I, on the other hand, struggle to replace a button.  My other sister, Pam, is an amazing polymer clay artist.

The Lael reunion is coming up in early October, and I’m looking forward to hooking up with all my far-flung kinfolk again.

That’s the news for this sunny Monday morning–see you tomorrow.

I should have been in Parable half an hour ago….

    Way to go Linda! I just switched from delivered meals to low carb and I’m feeling much better. Can’t wait to go to Parable again!

      Hi, gals. I have to give you a little note: I did low-carb several years ago and while it was fine, I am convinced that it contributed to my current high blood pressure problem. I ended up eating a lot of things that were high in sodium. I wish I’d thought about that, because the food I ended up eating was not good for me. So please, just keep that part of your d.i.e.t. balanced! It was my own fault, but I’d hate to have it happen to others.

    I checked out Sister-Sal’s things on Etsy. All I can say is…someone must have some patiences. And, a good imagination.

    Three of my cousins and I get together frequently for food, family, and fun, and we plan our McIntyre reunion, which is coming up the first Saturday in October. Reunions are fun, and you get to see people you haven’t seen in a year, or years.

    The problem with reunions is…all of the “old folks” are gone and now…we are the “old folks”. :-?

    Three of us are meeting Friday morning. By lunch time, we’ll have everything done but sending out reminders.

    Speaking of old folks, today would have been my son, Michael’s 46th birthday if he’d lived, and he shared this day with my daddy. I figured it up last night, and if my daddy had lived, he’d have been 94 years old. I was amazed at the thought.

    Take care!

    Have fund with your family reunion. My family is trying to do a reunion next year in the town where our grandparents meet and married. Most of us don’t have our parents or aunts and uncles so that makes us the old ones. It is a nice way to keep in touch when we live all over this country. Looking forward to Boone’s and Tara’s story. Also looking forward to Sawyer Mckettrick’s story. :wink:

    Please read Dr Joel Fuhrman’s book “Eat to Live.” It just makes sense .. To me, anyway .. :-)
    So enjoy your posts but, more than that, I enjoy your books!

    I feel so much better when I go low-carb. My favorite is cheesecake though. My daughter in law gave me a recipe that I use all the time.
    8 oz cream cheese (softened)
    1 regular tub of Cool Whip
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    24 packets of Splenda or Equal
