Finally finished the cat box yesterday. Pictures are under the cut. Now if we could only get the cat to use it. . . I've put her food up on the grate so she'll get used to jumping up in it, but I haven't seen or heard her using the box yet. Oh well. I spent too much time on this box for her not to use it.

Cat Box Box )

Didn't get to walk yesterday, since the cat box needed to be stained, and I was gone all day buying the last minute things and putting it together. Then my mom and I made zucchini fries to go with dinner. They are fabulous. Make them. Seriously.

So now I'm on the treadmill. Brother has a game tonight, but I'm trying to get out of going. I hate baseball.

Beware: Image Heavy Post Ahead

So I made that delicious chicken/almond/zucchini thing again tonight, and this time I remembered to take pictures to show everyone.

Warning: Deliciousness Ahead )

In other news, tomorrow is Mother's Day. So today my dad and I went out to get Mom her present. Mom's always like handmade stuff more than bought things, so I decided that since I already have a bunch of pastel acrylic paints from last summer's art projects, I would buy her a photo box and paint it all pretty. Here's what happened.

Craftiness Abounds! )

I went to the library today, since I decided to torture myself by reading all the great romances over the summer. I'm starting out with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It's really long, and due back on the 22nd. If I can pull myself away from the computer long enough to read it, I know I can have it finished. I'm excited to get some culture.

I bought something else today. A neoprene waist trimming band. I saw it on Dr. Oz the other day and really wanted to give it try, and when I saw one at Walmart today for 5 bucks I couldn't resist. I've only been wearing it for a few hours, but it's really making me aware of my posture. I have terrible posture except RIGHT after I do yoga, so this will be good for that. I don't know what effect it's actually going to have on my waist trimming, but at this point I'm willing to try anything.

New Doctor Who on tonight, and I'm really excited. I'll save that for another post though, after it's over. I don't want to make this post any longer than it already is.

Okay, now I'm going to expound upon yesterdays mini post, because I was exhausted.

I decided this summer while I'm home and my brother is in school that I'm going to walk to pick him up during the week. We only live about a mile and a half from his school, so it's a three mile walk almost every day. It's really not a big deal, and it feels really good. . . after the exhaustion has worn off of course. I'm hoping that, along with the walking on the treadmill will do a lot to help the weight boost. It was really weird the first morning after the walk when my right knee wouldn't work though.

Another thing I discovered that I hadn't watched before: Dr. Oz. New favorite show. I enjoy educational television. Today he was talking about alternative medicine, and I think I've found something I want to try. A jelly bath. You put this gel stuff in the water and it keeps the heat in longer than regular water. It appears to be very relaxing. I should try it.

It's been a long day, otherwise. Dad worked up enough time that he doesn't have to go to work today, so he stayed home. . . and when Dad stays home, we do work. Last night we mowed half the LARGE yard, and today we finished that off, cut some tree limbs, and washed three cars. I'm thoroughly exhausted, but still walking on the treadmill.

I meant to finish this post earlier today, but now it's 11:15 and I'm really tired. So I'll write it tomorrow, but it's about how I walk 3 miles a day and Dr. Oz's show, which I'm rapidly becoming addicted to.
