So tired today.

I dont know what it is, pollen that came down in the wind or something, but i'm SO so so tired today. My FACE is tired. My eyes are heavy, I have no energy at all, and I am barely keeping myself from crawling into bed and napping. I hate days like this, it is so hard to get anything done. All I've been doing so far is lurking around online, and reading the first Harry Potter book. I did manage to drag Sophie and I out to meet Mark for lunch today, and I swear I could totally live off of Thai food. Yum.

Unfortunately I just missed out on a chance to get the ultrasound on my leg done today, since I have Sophie with me. I have cysts that ache and bother me, and need it checked out. I guess I could have quickly called around for a babysitter, but oh well. Another day.

I made my first potato salad the other day, only because I had to use up some cooked potatoes, hah.

Ahh, back to Harry Potter I think.

i know i havent been blogging as much as i'd like to. i'd love to be one of those people with new and interesting stuff to blog about, and have giveaways and other such fun stuff. but i'm honestly not up to it, yet. i'm tired. varying degrees of depressed, and i am my own worst critic, i never think anything i may have is good enough. i'm busy taking care of sophie, and trying to take care of myself, but life always has its down moments, and they seem to be plenty. i can almost forget what its like to be happy and have fun. i usually have something in the works, or on my mind at least, and i even have a craft table for the summer market. i've been making some adjustments to things, and working on my display, so wish me luck. if anyone does read my blog, comments of well wishes and such would be wonderful.

here i am!

OK, so I know I havent been blogging much, but I can honestly say that life has been busier than normal, and it is totally getting in the way.

This past saturday was Mark's turn to be in charge of the craft market, so I figured I'd set up my stuff and see what happens. The day went fine, I got a lot of compliments and looks, but only sold one brooch and a baby sweater, so only $15 profit for myself. My arms and parts of my neck are sun burnt. Sophie ended up with hyperthermia that evening, which made for a very long night. She's been off and on since, but I think there's also some teething with the amount of drool she's putting out. She seems to be getting better now.

Last week we went down to Nanaimo for the day, and we went to Jysk and picked up a new dining room table, and a big rag rug, which I absolutely love, and put it under the new table. I keep seeing Sophie laying under the table, so I think we need to get another rug!

Last night Sophie was playing atop the stairs and threw herself off balance, and went down head first. Mark was able to leap up from where he was standing by the front door, and caught her. She didnt get hurt, besides scaring herself and us. Thank goodness. I think the whole ordeal gave me another few gray hairs. Sigh.

Not much else has been going on besides the never ending house cleaning. This afternoon was a productive one, as I got in a workout, mowed the back yard, weedwacked a bit, and did some weeding. I made an awesome smoothie and dinner tonight, and am most proud of myself. Because I rarely cook dinner. LOL.

3 peeled kiwis
1 c roughly blueberry yogurt
1 tbsp honey
1 c roughly almond milk
fill to top of blender with spinach.


sliced green pepper, carrot, green onion, celery, zucchini fried with braggs sauce and tahini, mix in cooked rice.

Dont you love my new doily layout? I do!

Let's see. I cant honestly recall anything blog worthy for the past week. Life was there, days went by, etc etc.
I've been on roller blades a few times now, trying to get used to them, and get back in shape, since Mark is learning to roller skate again. We switch off walking with Sophie, so we both get some exercise in.

Our garden is coming up nicely, only one tomato plant has been chewed on, and I had to cut back some rose bushes or whatever they are so another plant could get more sun. Did yard work, which is always good. There's a garter snake that live in our backyard, and while I'm not scare of it, it startles me every time I come across it when it starts slithering away.

I rearranged some furniture in the house, trying to make it nicer upstairs, and getting rid of small headaches. I had Mark move our dinning room table downstairs (his game table anyways, old and stained, etc) and all his gamer junk as well. I kicked the saturday night gamers downstairs, they can have their own room and washroom and such, and it worked out perfect for everyone. Now we need a new table to eat at! Hopefully I can find something nice.
Also moved my computer desk so Sophie can crawl across it and wreck anything. Yay.

Housework, washed the floor and whatnot. I kept seeing a smear of god knows what across the floor and it was really starting to get to me. HAH.

I've been busy working on our craft market web page lately, which is going well. See it here: Http://

I've almost got my craft table ready to go, something to work on this week. Hopefully I can make some cash one of these days.

I've been trying to do more research on my family tree, with some success, but I can only do so much online. Especially when I need info from Ontario and other far away places.

Sophie's doing more new things, which both terrifies me and makes me proud. I had a friend the other day tell me she's not a baby anymore, she's like a little kid already. I could just cry. LoL. Sigh.

Sophie says: "Daaaaaaad, gimme your keeeeeeys!"
