Live Laugh Love | Welcome to my little corner of the world.
K who caches as Paisleykmt, hails from Washington in the USA. She lists amongst her loves Steam Punk, camping with her boyfirend in their VW Vannagon, 007, dirty martinis and, of course, geocaching. She details the camping and geocaching adventures on her blog in an interesting and engaging way.
A few months back I did the Whole 30 for the second time. A friend turned me on to a blog called 40 Aprons. OMG! I have made a bunch of her recipes now and considering a lot are based on a W30 you DO NOT feel like you are “on a diet” when you are eating her recipes. B is out and about today with some Geocaching lackeys [they work at Geocaching HQ] and I stayed home to get some things done. Tonight I made Creamy Tuscan Chicken. It was so good! I have found many recipes on her blog that are satisfying and flavorful and don’t make me think that I am “eating healthy”. Bonus, B loves them as much as I do. Go check out her blog and make one of her recipes. I dare you!
It’s been quite a while since my last post (over a year). Not necessarily sure why I stopped but I can tell you my life has been full of adventures in that time!
B and I are going on six years together (2/16/19) and we are still camping monthly in the bus. Beej has gotten a little grayer (he will be 14 on 7/28/19) but still loves it!
Sadly we lost our outdoor kitty this past summer but still have our three indoor cats. We have gone from 9 chickens to 5. They just finished molting and are looking good! No eggs right now (first time I have had to buy eggs from a store in over two years) but as the days get longer we will see eggs in the coop again.
We went to Cuba in August of 17 and New Orleans this past November to celebrate B’s 50th birthday. Recaps to come soon.
I have some knitting, quilting, sewing, house and yard projects I want to accomplish this year. Both B and I started new jobs. I started working for a pop culture toy company March of 17 and he started working for a marine heater company September of 17.
I bought myself for my last birthday in July a 2019 Crosstrek and am loving it! It’s great for Geocaching adventures and makes my now shorter commute even that much better!
I will continue to post about travel, Geocaching, gardening, crafts & camping in the new year but I also have a significant weight loss goal for 2019. I plan to use this blog as a daily journal for that. So, if you see a post labeled “Day #” this will be a quick note on daily goals/accomplishments or meeting a significant milestone.
I am not going to post my starting weight or measurements but I will be tracking that. One of the better indicators I feel for weight loss are things like how much easier it is to walk my dog around the block or wow I need new pants cause mine are falling off. In 365 days I may not be at my “goal weight” but I would like to see a significant difference in how much space I take up in the world!
If you are not interested in the daily WL posts no worries I am not offended. If you feel like dropping a note of encouragement I welcome it on this journey!
