Last night we were informed that my father-in-law is once again in the hospital. Trying to convince my husband that we really should go see his dad and that he should prepare himself as well as he can prepare that his dad might pass away. My father-in-law was home only 10 days after his last hospitalization. I'm trying to stay on top of the household chores like keeping on top of having clean cloths, pet sitters, house sitter in case we have to take a fast trip. I think its going to be a hectic week so my crafts will have to sit on the back burner again. May you all have a great week.

Tutorial Tuesday

I decided that my tutorials are going to hit on a wide spectrum from health to making something (foods to crafts). So today I am going to talk about food portions. Something that I have learned recently. After an illness and not exercising I have gained about twenty pounds and I am working on taking those pounds off. Just exercising isn't going to help I learned that I have to watch my food intake  because my food portions are way to big.  Here are some of the foods and the right portion size.
Meat = a deck of cards
Fish = a check book
Veggies = 1/2 of a baseball
Fruit = 1/2 of a tennis ball
Milk = a yogurt single serving container
Cookie = two poker chips
Cinnamon roll = a hockey puck
Popcorn = a baseball
Cheese = two dominos
It is easier to understand a portion comparing it to an everyday item than to using measuring cups everyone understands it better. I have a very long list and only posted about a 1/4 of the list. If you would like to get the full list contact me. I guess I could use this for my thought of the day too. Have a great day.

Sleepy Saturday

I think that this blanket would help me stay in bed all day. So go to this site and take a look at the Hare by Did

Faux rabbit fur throws in deep brown, featuring various linings, are hand-cut & sewn. Each throw is one-of -a-kind & original: the various linings have been meticulously selected to ensure only the softest tactile sensation, thus the inconsistent measurements. These are quite possibly the softest blankets you will ever find!

*New brown cotton/poly blend (57x61in)

 Hope you all like it as much as I did.

Thought and or Quote of the day

What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense, we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.

Anna Jameson

I found this quote that I thought would work good for my thought of the day. It really has me thinking. Happy Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
