Some Recent Reflections

The time is right to reflect a little bit on recent happenings.

For starters, I have cleaned my entire house. As I said yesterday, I was possessed! I don't know what happened, but it sure feels good to be in a nice house.

Next up we have big (or I should really say, "getting smaller") news on the diet front. I've recently started dropping weight thanks to a new diet. I'm doing the ABS diet, which is not really a diet at all, more like a lifestyle change. I am now eating five (or so) smaller meals, consisting of things like "nuts" and "berries." I also eat some regular food but it's smaller portions, lots of fresh fruits, veggies, and the like. It's fabulous.

Thanks to the new diet, I've got so much energy now. I really feel revived and fresh again. I'm downright peppy! (This might explain how the house got cleaned. Maybe. I'm still making a strong case for "alien invasion" and let's leave it at that, ok?)

Lastly, I'm getting ready for the East Austin Studio Tour which, once again this year, will be held over near the Bay 6 studios and cottage area. I'm looking to get a new encaustic series done so, now that the house is pretty much clean, I'm going to start painting a bit. Maybe even a bit more frantically, thanks to the new diet, weight loss and all.

All that and it's autumn so it's starting to get cooler at night and in the morning. Oh happy days!

How's life in your little world?

Until next time...

Nice reflections - like your blog too! Just read the most recent and guess what...I too am cleaning house (and procrastinating obviously!) and on new diet. Hope this all works!

The back to school thing has started here too. I can now hear the buses in the morning and the kiddies off to the ranks. What fun. I bet the Mom's are happy now.

Lola, welcome, welcome. Thanks for the kind words and good luck with your house cleaning. I wish I could give you some pointers or advice but, since I do it so rarely myself, I feel completely unqualified. :~) Good luck with the new diet too!
