I haven't been posting much lately, because I haven't had anything interesting happening.  Then I remembered that this blog just records my daily life, and I don't have to think of anything profound to say. (Or have any profound pictures to show).

I have been regrouping.  After all the overtime I did on the first part of the year, and with our visitor, there have been many things that have been left on the back burner.  And now they are all calling for attention.  What I would love to do, is to drag all of the things out of the house and onto the front lawn, fix up all the little nagging things and paint, and then move things back into places that fit the life the way I want to live it now.  I know you are wondering how I could possibly do all that before it starts raining, or before my neighbors cart all my stuff away.  Really, did you think I would be able to drag all the things out in the first place? I'm going to have to work on one section of each room one at a time.

I also have to figure out the wheat free, low salt, low cholesterol, vegan, no trans fat, diet combination, which we pretty much abandoned during our guest's stay.  We got the chips and dips from Whole Foods and I highly recommend them.  Read the label - can you find a more perfect product? Except  now I have to figure out what GMO is and add yet another thing we won't eat on our list.

There's the job hunting thing.  And of course, there is that treasure box of unfinished quilts - can they still be called WIPs? - that I would like to get to, before I can work on my real UFOs. Quilting is definitely on the list of things I want to do, but the other things are taking priority for now.

GMO=Genetically modified organism
Yuk. :( that doesn't sound appetizing at all.

That's right, I forget that too - you don't have to have the Perfect Post before you write something! Or the Perfect Life to go with it....

I'd love to drag everything out of the house, then go find a new house. Hm.

The diet sounds....restricting. As in no chocolate. Since my diet consists of mostly chocolate, I don't think I'd come for dinner. *G* Good to know what GMO is, blech! I love Whole Foods stores.
