Thursday Challenges

Thursday, August 27, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday I installed the sewing machine in cabinet. Today I actually used it! Which shouldn't be a big deal - I remember sewing a dress for myself in grade school, and sewed quite a few clothes when I got out of college. For some reason I quit ... Read more

Wednesday Challenges and Successes

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      2 comments

Today was a better day than yesterday. My attitude was better than it was yesterday afternoon and evening and that makes a huge difference. Got up about 7 and worked in my yard, showered and then went to Mom's house to gather dead leaves fo... Read more

Tuesday - One challenge is over, another begun

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      1 comments

Today was the last day of my Spend No Money on Food Challenge. Piece of cake. I am prone to stocking way up on food, and I've done the same here. I'm starting a new Spend No Money on Food Challenge, this one until the end of the month. Wit... Read more


Monday, August 24, 2015      2 comments

Just one more day of my Buy No Food Challenge! Though I'll probably extend it through Friday. There's nothing that I need, and last Wednesday's ads are only good through Tuesday, so can't get anything from them, and Sunday's ads will be good thr... Read more

Sunday - Busy morning, lazy afternoon and evening

Sunday, August 23, 2015      1 comments

Got up this morning rarin' to go! After bragging everywhere I could think of about the scale, I decided to weed eat the dead weeds left after spraying. Somehow along the way I decided to move around the furniture in the office, so I did - and th... Read more

Down EIGHT POUNDS since last Sunday!

Sunday, August 23, 2015      5 comments

Down FOUR POUNDS "officially" - that's last week's average weight minus this week's average weight. Down just over FIFTY POUNDS in just under five months. That's why I'm posting this everywhere I can think of posting it. Losing eight pound... Read more

Saturday's Challenges - Not!

Saturday, August 22, 2015      4 comments

No particular challenges today. Nothing new, nothing special attempted, nothing special learned, just a nice ordinary day. Got quite a bit accomplished, but nothing special. Just stuff. Didn't buy any food (I even skipped the Farmers Marke... Read more

Friday challenges

Friday, August 21, 2015      3 comments

A strange day. But then, aren't most of them? Nothing special this morning, but when I went to take a shower after lunch the water was only lukewarm. I assumed it was because the guy left it turned too low when he showed me how to change t... Read more

Where'd they go?

Friday, August 21, 2015      2 comments

The 50+ pounds I've lost since March 15, that is. Wherever they are, they can darn well stay there! And take some more with them, too, please.... Read more

Thursday Challenges

Thursday, August 20, 2015      3 comments

Stayed out of the stores - didn't buy any food. Mom gave me a bottle of half and half that she got for bridge (no one wanted any) and I picked some cherry tomatoes from "my" plants at her house. I'm trying something new - making lard in the... Read more

Wednesday challenges

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      4 comments

As I've mentioned before, I'm still trying to define exactly what my 15 minute challenge is. Somethings obviously qualify - trying something new, learning something, doing something that I wouldn't have done if it weren't for the challenge, thin... Read more

Pantry Challenge

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      1 comments

I've decided to go for a week without buying any food. Kind of gutsy since I just moved in three days ago! I know I have lots of meat and lots of veggies and a few eggs and condiments and cream, so I can't think why I should need to buy anything... Read more

Tuesday's Challenges

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      0 comments

I need to come up with a name for these daily challenges. Something shorter than "Do something new or learn something or try something or do something you wouldn't otherwise do" challenge. Any ideas? A bit of a mixed bag again today, though... Read more

Monday, August 17

Monday, August 17, 2015      0 comments

No adventures today, unless you count using my shower for the first time and trying out my chained up (or chained down?) shower curtain. Which worked just fine, by the way. The shower curtain stayed inside the shower and it stayed where it belon... Read more

Today's 15 minute challenge

Sunday, August 16, 2015      2 comments

It's been an up and down day as far as my daily "15-minute" challenge is concerned. Which isn't really a 15-minute challenge anyway, but it's the theme for this month's New Leaf Challenge thread and that's what made me decide to do it. I call it... Read more
