Happy New Year – 2019

I can hardly believe that 2018 has come and gone already. I have been mostly absent since early last year, checking in only once in a while to share something. I’m hoping that in 2019 I find myself back in blogging and crafting mode. I have set a few goals for myself, and I’m trying to start the new year off on the right foot (not by standing on my right foot at midnight last night, as suggested by a Facebook meme, either).

My Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 83 & 84

Another two weeks, and here I am again, still trying to get back on a regular schedule, and not quite there…but getting a little closer.

My crafty mojo took a hike a few months ago, and I’ve been struggling, trying to get it back. There are so many things I want to do, and I still can’t seem to find the motivation to do any of them. Or I just feel so overwhelmed because there are so many things I want to do that I end up not doing any of them. This past week or so has been the first time in a long time that I’ve actually done a bit of crafting. I started on a blanket for my cousin’s dog, and I pulled out my sewing machine. I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve been making, and hoping that I can continue to make some progress.

My Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 74 to 82

Wow! I can hardly believe it’s been almost two months since I last posted! I want to apologize to everyone for just disappearing, and to all of you whose blogs I normally read and have been neglecting lately. I know I’ve mentioned in my last few posts (which were already becoming infrequent) that I was having a hard time staying motivated to write, and it appears that although I thought I was getting my groove back, I was wrong. 

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 73

I feel like last week was a good week, I’m not sure why. I didn’t really do anything extra special. For some reason I’m starting to feel a little more motivated to write in my blog, get back to crafting, and experimenting with recipes again. Maybe I’m finally coming out of the funk I’ve been in for the first part of the year, I certainly hope so!

Fantastic Bake Along – Shortbread Cookies

It’s that time of the month again! Fantastic Bake Along time! The Fantastic Bake Along is organized by Tracy at It’s a T-Sweets Day!, and is open for anyone to join. This month I was privileged to have been given the opportunity to choose the recipe for the Bake Along, and I chose a long time favourite recipe for shortbread cookies.
