Catching Up

I've been remiss in posting to this blog - again. Spring has sprung and I've been spending a lot of time in the yard with the chickens and tending to flower beds and such, but I'm going to try to do better and post more frequently here.

So, what's new with Marie Anne? I'm waiting on my income tax refund and will hopefully have enough to get the structural repairs done in my bath and laundry room, before I end up with burst pipes and/or the toilet through the floor into the crawl space. I'm tired of living this way and so ready to get things fixed up a bit.

My weight loss journey has slowed 'weigh' down, but I'm happy to report that I've lost 47 lbs to date - yea me! I'm not being as strict with watching the carbs and do cheat here and there, but it hasn't hurt me. I figure it's better to indulge every once in a while rather than restrict myself totally and end up binging and go off the diet entirely. I will NOT give in to the addiction and go down that road again!

I still enjoy writing about a little bit of everything at Associated Content. If you've always wanted to see your name in print, I'd be happy to help you along, so pop on over and join me.

We've had true spring-like weather here in southern Ohio, warm sunny days followed by chilly with rain. Heart-shaped leaves are already starting to replace the pretty purple flowers on my red-bud tree, the daffodils are done for the year, and the apple tree - in full bloom two days ago - got shaken up a bit with a wind storm and is near naked again.

That's it for today - see you soon!

Good to see you posting again! It is hard for me to find time to blog when Spring is here.
