Pictures,weight loss and exercise!

new look

This is my new old look. I chopped my bangs off last night. I have always had bangs and decided to grow them long and they bugged me so bad. I feel much better!

Well this is the last day of 2008, wonder how long it'll take me to remember to write 2009? I'm not one for New Years resolutions but I do have something I AM going to do in 2009. I want to exercise more and eat BETTER. I won't say diet because that's a mistake. I've been having leg pain but the test came back that all is good so I'm getting back on the elliptical and when it warms up a bit I'm getting back to walking more. I've gained about 20 lbs in 2 years! That has got to come off. So I'll be posting my accomplishments (and there will be some, thinking positive) on here and I figure if I get any readers then I'll have someone to "answer" to.
First post will be going up tomorrow....wish me luck and give me crap!

***Can anyone remind me how to resize pictures the EASY way?***

She doesn't always look pitiful....

I'm always posting pictures of Daisy and people always say Awwwww. I know people pity her because she's blind but she really doesn't act as though it bothers her at all. Today she was sleeping and the gas man arrived to fill us up with propane and she heard him. These next pictures were taken as she was preparing to eat him up!

"Grrr" What's that noise?

Don't worry, I'll scare them off!

Can you still hear them?


It's hard to see but in the last 2 pics her hair was stickin up like a lil mohawk all down her back....she's 5 lbs of terror!

This ones from Friday night, she was happy here...not trying to eat anyone.
Y'all have a good one!

Christmas Eve Eve

Banner #1 for niece Alexis

Banner #2 for niece Kennedy

Banner #3 I made for my youngest daughters friend, what's with all the orange and pink this year?

I made this sign for my oldest daughter, wasn't sure if she'd like it or not but she loved it! (big smile here)
I'll have to make another to send to KY for daughter #2. I've made wristies, da**it dolls, rice bags and rice eye mask...I am finished!
Although I do have a cute lil purse cut out....maybe after the new year. It'll be my first so I'll do it when things aren't so hectic. Now I'm off to finish making candy, I hope you all (?) have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Why won't they cooperate?

By they I mean wither blogger or Hughes net! It seems like they don't want me to post a blog that I've been wanting to do for days now. I have pictures to post and without them there is no blog!

....*big sigh* Hope to try again later and get some where.

All work and no play.....

That's how I've been feeling lately. Work,work,work. I have a million things I want to do and can't find the time to do them because I'm busy doing the things I HAVE to do.
I did go to a baby shower, my cousins youngest daughter is having a boy, naming him Samuel Aiden. I think that's a pretty name. I made him a fleece blanket, those are so easy! I found the fleece a week or so ago in the clearance dept in walmart and bought it for ????, I didn't know who but I now know where it went! She loved it...thank God!

I also made some more tags, that can be addicting. No pic of them. :( I'm now making a name banner for a young girl that has taken to my youngest daughter, I think she'd move in with her if her mom would let her! I've never made a banner before so if anyone has any advice send it my way!

I also cut my hair...again. I think I like it like this so I'll leave it alone, for a while.

Nanci at Brambleberrycottage has contacted me and I'll be sending out her cutting board this week. Hopefully Tuesday! I've got a soft bed and a good book waiting for me so y'all have a great night!!

**I've tried to upload pics the whole time I was writing this blog and the uploader thing is not cooperating with me soooooo, If there's not ant on here then you know I gave up!**

**Nanci will have til Sunday the 8th to get back to me and if not I'll draw another name**

When Hearts listen....angels sing

I was looking through some old stuff today and came across some of my favorite quotes. I thought I'd share them on here with.....well with myself I guess. Yep, I'm feeling sorry for just seems so hard to make friends on this site! Grrrr maybe it's just me, I'm going to post them anyway and then crawl in bed with my book.

By your own soul, learn to live
And if men thwart you take no heed.
If men hate you have no care.
Sing your song, dream your dream,
Hope your hope and pray your prayer.
~Parkenham Beatty~

To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way. And the high soul climbs the high way, And the low soul gropes the low: And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man decideth. The way his soul shall go.
~John Oxenham~

It takes years to build up trust, but only seconds to destroy it.
You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that you'd better know something.
Don't compare yourself to the best others can do,
But to the best you can do.
It's not what happens to people that's important.
It's what they do about it.
Always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
You control your attitude or it controls you.
It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
Your background and circumstances may have influenced who you are,
But you are responsible for who you become.
Even if you do the right thing for the wrong reason,
It's still the wrong thing to do.
