I know it's only Tuesday, but we'll be out grocery shopping tomorrow, so I might as well post the weigh-in today:
189. That's another .5 pounds gone. :happy dance: Looks like the 10-Minute Workout thingy is doing *something* - Herself told me Saturday evening that I was looking "good". :snicker:
Here's a well-written post on why a weapons ban will NOT work - it's written by a NPR-loving, gun-totin' Dem. What *I* like about it? He lays out what "assault" weapons are NOT - which a lot of gun-fearing people don't know. :sigh: (My feelings? Get rid of the "Gun-Free Zones", because that just tells criminals/crazy people that "Hey! Here's a spot where you'll have the only gun! Have fun for the 8-10 minutes it takes Law Enforcement to arrive!") (And did anyone outside of Texas see that a Jared's was robbed AT GUNPOINT a few days ago? Jared's posts all their stores with "No Guns". :snicker: Guess the robbers didn't see those, huh?)(And and, Texas has specific signs that MUST be posted in order to be legally enforced. Most places post "gun-buster" signs, which mean NOTHING to licensed concealed-carry people. In Texas, you have to use the "ugly" sign, and it must be in specific language and a specific size. Just a FYI. Jared's posts the ugly signs.)
I received a LOVELY present yesterday - a quilled piece of wall art. Normally, all hand-made art goes in the Studio...but this one won't. I want it where I can admire it every day....I don't spend all day in the Studio, but I spend a lot of time in the Family Room. I just need to figure out *where* would be the best spot to display it......it's *gorgeous*!
We need to look for a new oven.....Friday evening I had a lovely steak dinner planned. As usual, I set up the top oven to "broil", then started getting the steaks ready. I saw "flickers"....and the broiler was shooting sparks. :freak out: So I turned it off, and set up the bottom oven....which at one point *caught the steaks on fire*. :big freak out: The oven - not the broiler - seems to be working, but I'm all panic-y now, so we'll be replacing it with the IRS refund. :sigh: (The steaks were salvageable.....but STILL.) I HATE having to replace appliances, because they ain't cheap - and free-standing double ovens are less cheap than normal ovens. (And SG is insisting that I get another double oven, even though we don't use both ovens all the time.)
We've renamed Penny - she is now, and forever more, going to be known as "Tigger". It fits her much better. :lol:
Herself got a few craft books for Hanukkah - one of which was a "beaded bug" one. She's gone NUTS. I have beaded butterflies, moths, and beetles all OVER place, as well as parts of them. :snicker: I'm hoping she doesn't get into quilling - it's beautiful, and I LOVE the effect, but I really, really, REALLY don't need more craft supplies scattered around the house. :lol: (The problem is that now, instead of focusing on *1* thing, she's multi-crafting. So that I have a house-full of half-finished stuff all over the place. I don't mind the crafting, really, but I do mind the crochet/beading/knot-work/origami/quilti
Herself is baking cookies right now - they'll make a nice dessert. Menu today: Chicken and Steak fajitas. :yum!:
Have a great day, y'all!
