Really works well for cleaning coffee pots, sinks, stainless steel sinks, etc. Hope you can use this info and . . . Think Spring!

It is hard to figure out the classifications of the tracker. It seems to have me way over 10,000 steps today and that seems a little strange. However, when I didn't do as much it seemed correct at 3,000. I know since I have gotten the tracker I am moving more. Just didn't think I was moving that much! I do a modified cycling move and it has me using a lot of calories doing that. I know the movement is fast, but . . . Oh, well, only time will tell I guess.
Was not up to a lot of energy today. Felt fatigued again. Think I will blame it on the weather. That's a good thing to blame everything on right now. Or maybe it is all those steps I am doing.
Can't wait to say my favorite spring ditty to the grandkids. You know the one:
Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, Sure do wonder where cupid is!
Ah, Spring fever is just around the corner!

It has been difficult to fit in everything that needs to be done each day. Once I did a speaking engagement about all the hats we ladies wear. One comment I make sometimes is, "I am not Super Woman." Though, at times, the many demands placed on me by friends and family makes me think that is how they think of me.
How did I get here? Because I have been the proverbial "jack of all trades" most of my life. "Oh, you sew? Could you do this for me?" "Oh, you can type? Could you do this for me?" "So, you know how to do taxes, could you tell me . . ." "So, you do crafts, could you make me something like this?" "So, you play an instrument and sing, could you . . ." "So, you have worked with children, can you help . . ." "So, you work at home, you could probably easily fit this in since you are not working eight hours . . ."
Why is it that when you work out of your home people think you are not working? Guess I need to take the phone off the hook more often. Also, I need to say "NO" more often. One of the best things I think I heard someone counsel was to "stay focused." When I stay focused on the tasks I have been given to do, it is easier to direct others to someone else. Because I have been available to people, one friend said to me, "what would we do without you?" I answered, "God would provide someone else to help you."
This time thing is one balancing act I am going to win! On to victory!

My daughter sent this video to me. What an inspiration to look at things differently. Like, the glass is not half empty, it is half full. I have tried, I have not failed, I have discovered how not to do it. My favorite as a bargain hunter at flea markets: Another man's trash is "my" treasure.
Please enjoy! Be Inspired to do and say things differently.

Was on my feet most of the morning cooking. Realized yesterday that I had very few things cooked from scratch left. So, I put on a pot of beans -- a large pot. The first bag of beans I had to throw out. They did not look right. The second pot is a mix of pinto and black beans. Making soup and took out two cups of the beans to make beans and rice. That has been completed. Then, DH was hungry for pickled eggs, so I made those, too. Have some bread to make -- gluten free soda bread -- this afternoon to go with the beans.
I feel tired, but have to get my workout in yet and some sewing to do.
The sun is trying to peak through the flakes that are falling. It is just too cold to snow, but I guess the snow doesn't know that. Oh, well, not suppose to have a lot.
Thanks for stopping by!
