Me 2008 check up

4 months ago I made a list of what I wanted to do in 2008. It's time for a check up.

Exercise regularly.
Wow, I still need to work on this one. Last week when I was without a car, I took Zibby for a brisk walk 2 days in a row. It was initially for HIS benefit but then I realized that I was getting exercise too. Sub goal: take Zibby for a walk 2 times a week.

Move
back to Utah.
This was more of a joke goal but we are trying our hardest. The thought of it makes me miss Georgia...alot.

Establish
an online shop and blog. DONE!
The blog is loads of fun and the shop is there. We're in it for the fun and not for the profit...that makes us nonprofit right?

Read
more scriptures and church magazines. Still needs work
Jesus The Christ (all of it this time). I read the first page...off to a great start hah!
lots of other leisure books. Currently reading "A Girl Named Zippy" by Haven Kimmel and I laughed aloud after only 16 pages. Thanks for the tip Robin!

Finish
at least 3 of the many quilts that I am in the middle of making.
Progress! I finished the top of one of the quilts. I'm not even considering hand quilting it so the rest will have to wait until I can have Molly use her machine quilting magic on it.

Learn
to play Claire de Lune by Claude Debussy on the piano (memorized).
Accomplishment of this depends highly on moving so I can get my piano back. I did find a free copy of the music online and print it out.

Make
a new recipe for sunday dinner every week.
What was I thinking? This one should read "make a new recipe sometimes." I've actually been doing pretty good at trying new recipies and a few of them have really stuck. The Read and Feed blog is definitely a nice tool.

I'm really glad I checked back on my goals. It's nice to have a reminder what what I want to be doing.

the bugs are back in town



Yes, bugs, not boys. For some reason I can't get the song "the boys are back in town" out of my head right now. Remember this post? I know some of you would rather not remember it. I'd definitely rather not remember. I had a nice chat with my neighbor last night about spiders and roaches and I just thought I'd remind all my bugless blog readers how lucky you are. I spotted a small-ish (small for Georgia but big for places like Utah) spider on our steps the other night, several caterpillars (harmless really) outside, dead roaches on the sidewalk (thank you pest control!), and several mystery bugs in the house. I'm so glad I have my bug catching buddy Zibby. I love it when he pounces on them!

Howdy

We're in Nashville for a few days. Brooks is running the Country Music Marathon tomorrow morning. We're excited to see our friends from Cincinnati and see the sights in Nashville. Good luck on the race Brooks! Hopefully we'll make it over to Opry Land. Our dinner at Hard Rock was pretty tasty. Stay tuned for some pics.

Hey look...we don't have kids so we got a "family" picture with our dog.


Here's one without the dog :)

Loving

I'm loving the pictures of this little guy right now. Junior was a little wobbly baby when we moved out here to GA and now he is walking and talking! Time flies...it's hard to miss out. That also reminds me of some videos I have of 2 of my cute nieces. First is Pinkie singing with her Barbie songs in her Barbie dress (at Christmas). The second is Miss M. singing a Christmas song that you'd never expect a kid her age to sing. Check it...

hilarious!

How funny! You can fold your own presidential candidate. I don't think I'll do it but it's funny!

Looking


Zibby spotted something (nothing really) out the window this morning. I had to scratch his belly to get him to stay still for the photo. I can see your comments now...
"geez Bonny, that dog is as tall as you!"
...I know, you don't have to say it.

I'm not ashamed

I'm so excited!
My blog buddy is much less excited. His comment is: "This is crap."
ha ha

Go Cubbies

We had a little visitor the other day. I know I know, big deal right? This is just not something you see in Utah. We get excited every time they come around, and fireflies. Spiders and roaches on the other hand...not exciting.

Hakuna Matata

We saw the Lion King in Atlanta last night. It was awesome! Have you seen it? The makeup and costumes were incredible. I wish we would have been sitting closer...but it was still great! (photography was not allowed, thanks google images for the pics)

It's almost summer...

...at least here in the South! Yesterday was beautiful and warm (81 degrees and humid)! Every tree and bush is in full bloom. Really, it smells like Froot Loops outside! It's got me thinking...

1. I really want a yard so I can toss a frisbee or a football with Brooks and watch Zibby play.
2. I wish Athens were closer to a nice beach.
3. Maybe we'll take a trip to Florida! I've been dying to go to a theme park for some reason.
4. Lets take a drive!

Rhododendron - it's everywhere!
