Belly warming this morning--hehe!
I decided to get out one of the unfinished projects to work on--the extra Christmas cards from last year. These have all the parts finished, but they're not put together...
...and these are more extra parts. Obviously not enough.
Got out the cuttlebug...
...but remembered why I had stopped. Ran out of the green cardstock. So, if this is a good day, I might go out on this sunny May day to buy green paper at one of the craft stores in town. :)
Had to take pictures of the biggest bag pile ever--hehe!
Karma likes me to pile them on her, but leave her able to watch me in the kitchen.
She likes to spy on me...
...while her fear of being stepped on keeps her out of the kitchen--hehe!
I have never tried "healthier" cookies.
Yes. I do have a sweet tooth. Figured I was eliminating quite enough at this time--so thought I'd try organic cookies.
Got Caroline some new good-for-the-earth stuff for cleaning the bathroom.
Took me over an hour to put everything away. (I transfer dried lentils/beans/grains to my jars.) That blank half shelf is now filled with all types of vegetable soups. This will be my go-to spot when I'm not up to making anything on my pain/noodle days. :)
My frig was almost empty before--lots of fresh veggies, yogurt, and even range free organic eggs!
The freezer was empty.
Yes--I splurged and got fancy cheese pizzas. Pizzas I have never even tried before--ever. Thought I needed something familiar for Dagan and Leah when they come on Wednesdays--and some decadent comfort food while I go thru withdrawal with this huge shift--hehe! Fruits, veggies, and boca burgers & crumbles. I am all set!
I know--doesn't seem like a big deal to most people, but it does to me. And to the Cashwise delivery guy...who assured me he could never live without meat...several times...shaking his head. He wished me luck as he rolled the dolly cart away down the hallway...still shaking his head.
Okay. Speaking of. I tried to watch Earthlings last night. And the DVD was not working right. It had English subtitles, so I went to go back to the menu to change that and it would go to a blank, black screen...I'd push play--a sheep being killed in a slaughterhouse (but obviously not the beginning of the DVD)...menu--blank...play--some other animals...skipped all over and I couldn't get it to go back to the beginning. I tried taking it out and putting it back in, but it remembered what it was doing and continued leaping about the DVD and refusing to show the disc menu main page.
I took it out and watched a DVD on Chinese brush painting. Took it as a sign that I wasn't ready yet.
I'll try once more later today to see if I can get it to start over--now that I know the problems, I can just watch it with subtitles. But--whew! I really have to work up to it. The few seconds I watched...jolting! Immediately brought me back to watching the news as a teenager--Vietnam--when that man matter-of-factly just shot this prisoner in the head and he fell to the earth...
Yes. I think these DVDs are going to help me not want to eat meat.
Anyways--later...later...I want to try to make it out into the big wide world to find green paper on this sunny cooler day. Also on the lookout for some Tim Holtz products. Not that I can probably buy much today...but one can always window shop, right? I hope the force is with me today--hehe! :):)
