thank you. i can't wait to get back to it. i'm on the road with my husband for a week with nothing but my iphone and a book about why i shouldn't be eating wheat. i love working at those circles. they look kind of like sleepy eggs, nestled in a box. it's relaxing, even though i have to work at shoving the quilt through my machine to do it. so glad you liked the video + are going to check out the e-course! i'm going to go gape at your blog now... ::: blog: www.n o d d y b o o (field notes on domestic bliss

hey there, i've been missing you in the ethernet. it's great to see/feel your presence. dark chocolate peanut butter cups sound pretty magnificent just now. i could definitely go for a handful of those. yes, great vid, right? loved that. very inspiring. loving 40. although i've heard 40 quickly turns into 50 so i guess more reason to appreciate each and every moment. so glad you like the quilt. it's waiting for me at home while i travel around with chris for a bit. much love xo

oh how beautiful!!! those are incredible! i love that yarn and those colors. that makes me think socks would be better off sold in threes anyway. i'm always losing one here or there. although, what a tragedy to lose a hand knitted sock! what pattern did you use? these came out lovely. :)

thanks so much dru :) enjoying the process. hopefully i will find more snatches of time to close in on finishing it! yes, that unravelling course was perfect for stretching, was it not? i might be inclined to do it again sometime myself. xo

hi there. do you challenge yourself occasionally? do you stretch yourself to your limits? do you follow through? do you look for the solution as you move through life? are you flexible? these are all things i'm working on. have you seen this video - "make it count" ? i love that video. it's full of great quotes and has an inspiring story that makes me want to push through any and all personal obstacles + keep aiming higher and living life to its fullest. there are classes on this sort of thing... ::: eating gluten-free last week turned out...

i am equally obsessed with this video! i went and bought the entire album after i discovered it. yes, please share. i think millions of people need to see it. isn't it gorgeous? the whole bohemian meet-up in the forest for a pillow fight? makes me want to host a pillow fight myself. :)

gosh. the hair obsession continues. just found another great hair tutorial at ::a beautiful mess:: for a messy top knot. it makes me want to trim long bangs. and here's another one for braiding a reverse crown. cute! ::: so, i've decided to do a 'gluten-free' diet challenge for next week, monday thru friday. we are not gluten free in this house, but i do notice that we tend to mix up our grains a bit more and eat more nourishing foods when we don't have wheat to fall back on. it takes a little more planning but i'm game....

oh my goodness, more braids. i love the internet. i know what i'm doing this weekend. 1) marley, post cornrows; 1) succulent recovering from being nibbled by our cockatiels. ::: in other news, my husband and i attempted a water challenge this week. the challenge was to drink only water for 5 days. eat normally, just replace sodas, juices, teas, coffee, alcohol, etc. with water. i failed. a friend brought over a bottle of wine, and he has very good taste in wine, so... plus i drank yerbe mate twice. at least twice. but. i did drink more water than...

the rest of this week and next, i've decided that my mission is to act on desire, rather than fear of failure or fear of the unknown. actually, i'd like to make this way of thinking a new part of my life. a permanent part of my life. i am going to watch my kids carefully, for they are experts in this department. it takes between 15 and 254 days to form a new habit. think i can do it? :) happy friday ::: Continue reading
