Oh, yeah, I do have a blog.......

My how time flies! :)  With the holidays and work and work and more work the months have gotten away from me.

I have been busy with my day job, trying to find a new day job (please, universe!), my home businesses (ebay consignment and craft business), my beloved four-legged furry children and so, sadly, my blog took a back seat.  My intention is to blog more intentionally and with some regularity.  I think I tend to get so overwhelmed that instead of doing anything, I just stand still.  I am working on that.

First and foremost, please meet Zeke, the newest member of my family.   He came to me on Thanksgiving weekend and is just a real lovebug.
He is a real sweetheart and likes to stay super close to me, much to my sweet little Freida's dismay (Freida is my shadow). They have learned to tolerate each other...they can both touch me at the same time as long as they don't touch each other! LOL. Speaking of touching, this is a usual scenario as I sit and work at my laptop in the evenings...(excuse the blurry picture)..


And my beloved Freida looking on from behind my head.....she looks as though she is saying "oh mom, what have you done and why is he here?" :)
And finally a bit of a picture marathon to catch you up on my life of late....I am still eating well, but have incorporate aspects of Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Diet, and am including lots of green smoothies, juice and raw foods.  I made an amazing creamy raw ranch dressing....yummy!  I love the taste of my green smoothies and coming up with the different concoctions, but I must admit that I do have a hard time getting past the color....is that normal?



Me at an almost 70# weight loss....
What to do if you get a cute rug for Christmas but with so many cats, you can't use it as a rug or the cats would use it as a scratching post.................well, you hang it on the wall of course!
And I am in my studio creating new crafts all the time....here are just a few...





Well, I guess that is the update for now.....I am off to a get-together with friends this evening and then to Walmart (I know....the excitement is killing me!) 

See you soon!

Hi Lolly! I keep have that old School House Rocks song in my head... "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly get your adverbs here..." ha ha

So great to meet you and all your fur babies. Yours and your mothers shop are great. Zeke is beautiful. I've had fun poking around your blog, congrats on a successful weight loss.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the blogging world and for your nice comment! I do hope you return soon :)

Happy Creating!

Lolly,

Congratulations on the 70 pounds. You go! I haven't bought the "Crazy Sexy..." book yet. I will send you an email about that.

Love the pictures of Zeke, he is beautiful.

I hope you had a great week,
Ali
