Day 3′s challenge is HANDS….

I don’t have pretty hands. They are great for knitting. Great for holding a book. Great for gardening. Great for wrapping packages, baking, using the mouse to look at other people’s blogs and still neglect my own, great for teaching small children. But they aren’t pretty…

I am a type 1 diabetic, and my hands show the scars of finger pricks. ~ Pharmacist every other month: “You take your blood sugar 6-10 times a day!?!”  Yes, my favorite Target Pharmacist… I do. It’s my life line. The only way I know exactly how I’m doing and what is wrong with me. I’d much rather have to prick my finger and take extra insulin, or have to eat a snack than wind up in a hospital in a coma, or with an IV….

SO, my hands are not pretty. They are not very girly (as much as I’d like them to be light and delicate.) But they work hard. And I love them.

Hey! Remember that blog challenge?

Oh hi!! Remember that blog challenge? You know, the one that involved this:


This one.

Well, I suck.  SO, today is:

May 2, 2012.

FEBRUARY’s blog challenge called for words on the second day. That challenge stumped me. I wanted a Bible verse. I wanted my favorite fiction book. I wanted words that have a powerful message.

I’m settling for the words: May 2, 2012. PRIORITIZED DAILY TASK LIST.  Because, apparently, I need one. Otherwise, nothing gets done. These words most definitely have a powerful message: This blogger is a procrastinating nutjob.

Until next time…

The View from Up Here…

February 1 Photo Challenge called for a photo of your view today. Well, it’s February 1. I live in Kansas. Shouldn’t my view look a lot like this?

This is a photo of the snow from last year. It’s beautiful, and I love to look at it (from inside our nice, warm home… wrapped in footie pajamas, and a snuggie, and a double fleece blanket. ) Well, I was kidding about the snuggie. ;)

This year, our view has been like this:

No snow. Perfect temperatures. Beautiful days to be outside. SUNSHINE!

This is a view from our front porch today.

And here’s a view from the other side, a bit later in the day.

I love Kansas…

FeBrUaRy Photo Challenge!!


Hey you!!

You’ve heard of this right?

I sure hope so. Because, otherwise this whole blog project I’m starting won’t make much sense.  So, let me draw  insert a picture to help  explain what I’m doing here:

See this cute little chart? I found it on Pinterest. I’ll be taking this challenge. The only problem?  I’m a bit of a “LET’s START THIS, IT’LL BE GREAT!” two weeks later… “Oh… I forgot, I was going to do blank, blah blah blah, too much laundry…” kind of girl. SO… If I start this challenge, and don’t finish it till April, don’t be surprised.
