I really want to drop the excess weight I've been carrying for too many years, and have decided that watching my calorie intake and exercise are the keys for me. I also am cutting back on my sugar intake. I am not cutting out all carbs but seriously I eat to many sugary treats and Coke. I've given up cola before but I am really going to say goodbye this time.
Anyway, I've been riding our recumbent bike consistently and I cut back to almost nothing in the soda department in the last several days.
But I must confess, as all of my Facebook readers will know- I made The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls last night! These are so good! Fortunately for me there are a lot of people around here who will demolish these babies before I get home from my day in the shoppe!
Speaking of the shoppe....Spring puts me in the mood to brighten up my wardrobe. What do you do to change your wardrobe from Winter to Spring?
My girls have been going through their things and purging items that don't fit or that they don't want anymore. I've done that with Kyle's clothes too, and I need to do this with my own clothes and I am going to go through my homeschool items. I have 18 years of homeschool books, and other materials that I no longer use. I am going to keep some things, so my kids can use them when they homeschool their children, but I will be getting rid of other things. If you are interested in what I might have, let me know and I can send you a list once I get to this project.
My homeschool needs for next year are simple. A new math book for Sarah (Rachel is working on a multi-year pre-algebra and I have Kyle's already), Italic writing book for Kyle, a science book for Rachel...I have everything else we need.
There may be some big changes coming here at the cottage. I'll let you in on that when it is settled.
Lindsay and I need to get our spinach and lettuce in the ground, and pot some tomatoes, and a few other things indoors. Rachel and Sarah are going to grow herbs to sell this year. It will be a learning experience for them and hopefully bring in some spending money of their own.
Well, it's time to ride the bike, so I'll talk to you soon!
