Debbie's blog give-a-way

Debbie is a new blogger and is having a blog give-a-way. Check out her site.

I've not had my regular computer for a several weeks now, while it's being de-bugged for viruses, so I haven't posted, since I don't want to introduce any new viruses on this computer. I've been beading non-stop for weeks now, and once again most things are ending up in my UFO bin. But I am determined that there is meaning in this struggle I am having. That I will somehow plow through whatever blocks I am having and begin to generate ideas, designs, color combo's, and actual pieces.

I'm still not reading - tried the books on tape thing and found it too distracting - I had to listen too hard, and I'm actually finding myself not missing them. This is actually a good place for me to be in. Without the distraction of daydreaming through books, playing detective to mysteries, I'm focusing on one of my goals for the year, to really push my beading and see where it takes me.

I'm also having a "C is for Challenge Month." C as in fewer calories, no chocolate, no cake, no cookies, no candy, fewer carbs, but yes to carrots, creativity, control, and cardio. Oh, also no coffee. The cravings are still there, but I just keep telling myself no C's this month. I'm hoping to feel better at the end of the month, more energetic, and maybe will have lost a pound or two so I can get back on track with weight loss. I haven't started my February BJP yet, but I bet you can guess the theme! Can you think of any more C's that might help motivate and inspire me?

And my reward for the C month - a 4 night cruise full of (hopefully) sunshine and warm temperatures. In preparation, I am studying how to use my Canon camera. I got one of those Canon books for dummies, and I've now correctly set up my camera. Marching right along....

Wow, what a great idea...C is for Carol, I'll be a yes C please! I was with you till you said no Coffee. Don't know that I could do that and I know I don't want to. Good for you to focus on yourself. Keep posting, its the surfing that finds viruses you know. Stay warm,
xx, Carol

The only word that comes to mind is comfort and you can't eat that. Comfortable shoes, clothing and comfort food. Be Cind to yourself also comes to mind. Also, couldn't sleep that's why I'm writing at 3:00 am. Hopefully this makes you laugh. Stay well.
