It's been a LONG time since I've updated my little spot in the blogisphere, way too long in fact.  It's been almost 17 months which sure seems like a long time when put that way but life just has a way of getting away from you at times, and I've never been a good person with's not one of my strengths that's for sure! 

There have been LOTS of changes in my life over the last year and a half and I've accomplished a lot that I'm very proud of.  We bought a house, I've lost another 30 pounds or so, I've taken up yoga and I still continue to walk almost daily if I'm not riding my bike.  I was also diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes so my "Project Me" has taken on a whole new meaning.  Diabetes is a battle that I am determined to win and so far I've been able to keep my numbers in a fairly good range with just diet & exercise and some Metformin.  I've adopted a ketogenic diet to help combat this disease so hopefully in the future I'll be sharing some recipes I've tried.  Needless to say, all this other activity has put a dent in my creative time but that's not to say I haven't been, just notsogood at documenting anything lately. 

Three years ago I made some glass totems and thought that perhaps after doing several of them it was out of my system.  The problem however is that I still have several pieces of glass and I compulsively bought many other pieces at yard sales and thrift shops over the past three years.  I had a whole tote full of them so what's a girl to do?  Glue that shit together...that's what! Besides, I didn't have any of the original pieces I made, I had given them all away as I tend to do. When I took my tote out I had enough glass to make several more and ended up with 4, which means more are inevitable!

I am being selfish with these though and I'm keeping them all, and just to make sure I would I already placed them in my garden.  My new house has lovely areas to put them in, they kinda look like garden jewelry.

Thirty Word Thursday-Dinner

Sautéed tender asparagus fragments 
accompanying the vibrant leafy crowns 
of jewel toned ruby red beets 
settled amongst dense pillows
of sweet potato gnocchi 
and morsels of crispy turkey bacon...
