Good Sunday Morning to Everyone!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Where to start...Where to start........
Well, I have created a new banner for my website, you can find it at the bottom of the page. I think it looks really good. How 'bout you? If you would like to schedule a portrait just leave me an email (at the website) and say that you came to my site by way of my blog. And for that little trip, I will give you 10% off the price of a portrait. Just put in the code in the subject line of the email. The code is BLOGSEPT3011. The discount is good until September 30, 2011. Go and Look now...you won't be disappointed.
**The discount is good for portraits only. It does not apply to the printed work through Imagekind**
We went to The Mill last night to see Reason Why play. They were pretty good. Entirely too loud for the space they were in, but still a good show. It was from 8pm to 10pm. It was overcast and looked like rain the whole time but it didn't. I'm glad it was overcast....it was a comfortable 77 degrees, instead of totally miserable like it has been. About half way through the night I had to get up and move...where I was sitting the speaker was aimed at my left ear. The singer managed to hit a note, with his voice and guitar, that made my ear hurt. I don't mean a 'ringing' but an actual physical pain in the center of my ear. It throbed for 20 minutes or so and then stopped. Some of the older people there had the strangest looks on their faces when the band started playing....it was a total "What The Hell Is This" look! My mother-in-law was one of them. I think I knew every song they played, which was nice. We had a good time at the concert but we missed the market that was going on...it only went until 2pm. You would think that they would have it up until the concert starts. Oh well, they are having another one on the 3rd of September...maybe I'll go to that one. Here's a couple of pics from last night...

I have also been working on some designs for clocks for Halloween. As soon as they are ready I will post them here for everyone to see (and order - HA). I have six new designs that I think everyone will like. Stay tuned for the finished product!!
I have been trying really hard to follow my doctor's orders with all this blood pressure gobbly-goop. Do you know how hard it is to cut your sodium down? Holy Cow!! I am soooo over having to flip over everything I buy. I guess next year I will have to dedicate an area for a larger garden so I can grow my own veggies. They put salt in everything. I have managed to cut it back to just under 'normal' consumption...I'm afraid to know what it was before I had to start inspecting every can, box and package. I still have to cut it back some more......anyone got an suggestions? Any recipes?? I think I will post some low or no-salt recipes when I find some good ones. If you have any send them to me...who knows, maybe your's will get posted too! On the plus side (maybe?) the calorie levels have fallen...I've been averaging between 1200 and 1600. Maybe that will help with the weight that I'm supposed to lose. I have, as of yet, failed to start my exercise back up again...trying to squeeze one more thing into my day seems to be proving difficult. And I'm trying to stop smoking and cut back (quit?) my caffine habit too. Which are two vices that don't seem to want to let go easily. Anyway, wish me luck as I try not to become a raving lunatic in the process. :)
GOOD NEWS!! My baby will be home in about 10 days. Yes, the countdown has started. I can't wait to see her. It's been since February since I last laid eyes on her. She may be moving back to Georgia as well. She will get to help me set up all the decorations for Halloween! YAY!! She's a Halloween nut like me! I can't wait for her to come home!! Miss you Jenifer!! I am waiting patiently! I'm sure that both of children are laughing hysterically now.....If you know me, you know about how much patients I have. :)
Come Home Chic - We All Miss You A Lot!!!
I guess that's all for now. Have a great day and be good to each other.
