I am posting early for Elizabeth's T for Tuesday (see link on side bar if I don't get back with the link in post)
I will be gone all day on Tuesday-doing taxes and then some fun shopping-and I am hoping to get more texture put up on the bathroom walls tomorrow and want to stay focused on that.(Monday) I just have not found my muse to finish that project-and I want to so I can paint it-finally lol and then play with getting rocks up on the walls later in the week. I am on jury duty call for 3 months which ends early May-so that is on my mind if I will have free time or not.
Wow it has just been so windy here since March 1st-our March here in the Ozarks-Missouri definately came in like a lion-so hoping April comes in like a lamb.
On Wednesday March 1st and also the day before I fast walked my virtual 5 k Yellowstone marathon The monies went to support Yellowstone Park.
Since early January, I have been on a mission to lose at least 10 pounds before next fall comes around. I did allot of walking in the house on the cold days and then when I saw this marathon I was hooked-lol 5k is a little over 3 miles-we marked it out on our property and very doable for me.
A month ago when I first started it took me an hour and 45 minutes to complete On race day I had cut it down to an hour and a couple minutes-excited about that. I have finally lost 3 pounds, clothes still too tight but I am beginning to feel stronger.
I also signed up for a virtual race in April which supports the National Parks. Keeps me motivated.
A friend and I are planning our trip more now for Yellowstone in May-we are getting quite excited too. We rented a room with a full kitchen so thinking about the foods we want to bring-and what to buy when we get there. May will be here before I know it for sure
On another note, this morning I got one of the raised beds watered well (we have had hardly any rain at all here or snow) and added in some of my compost-I planted half of it with some spring greens and beets and radishes. It got so cold and windy again that I needed to stop. Hope to finish the other side tomorrow for a few spring veggies.
For my Yellowstone trip I needed to buy a new camera as my old one no longer holds a charge for long-I just kept it plugged in. So I bought a Cannon PowerShot and I need to learn how it all works. Charging the battery is totally different in this one-I need to take the battery out of the camera put it in this box that plugs into the wall-lol what a hassle-and when I charged the battery it took two photos and then no more battery-so not happy at all. In the instructions it says when not using the camera to take the battery out of the camera--I think this is odd-do any of you have this camera?? I am going to see if I can find this battery to purchase so I have a spare-don't want to run out of battery in Yellowstone-
I brought this up as yesterday evening we had allot of deer come by for corn-a couple groups including a handsome 7 point buck that I wanted to take a photo of-so sigh no photos to share in this post.
The other evening I dug out my very very large cast iron skillet and made a homemade pizza with a yeast crust for hubby and a friend. I made a gluten free version for me that I baked on red tiles--they both turned out delicious.
Speaking of cast iron and dutch oven cooking and/or baking-I decided to start posting recipes and information on Friday's-if you enjoy your cast iron too for cooking and baking indoors or outdoors-please join me My goal is to get into baking more things this summer-fall
I have been waiting for my favorite authors to release new books-so decided to dig out the Twilight books and re read them-again lol I love these books for some reason-while reading I need to remind myself that Bella is in high school and that's why she acts the way she does sometimes--but I really do enjoy these books.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
