It's been a while since I've written, but I haven't been doing nothing.

Sunday was Mother's Day, so after church my whole family went out for lunch, then my mother and I spent two hours at Walmart buying groceries, since none had been bought in two weeks. We were all starving.

Monday I spent most of the day with my grandfather, making a box to house the litter box that lives in my room. The inspiration came from this site. My cat has an automatic cat little box, but instead of using the handy little carpet ramp to get the litter off her paws, she jumps right out of the box, leaving cat little ALL OVER the carpet. So to fix that problem, we've built a box. I didn't have time to take picture of the project, but I will post a few pictures of the finished product when it's finished. All it lacks is a shelf and a door, and then it'll be finished.

I would have written yesterday as well, but my mom left me a huge list of chores to do, and then my brother had a baseball game and we didn't get home until 9PM. That was just in time to was Glee (best show ever), and go to sleep.

Today was more cat box fun, though we haven't made any more progress than the other day. We just moved it into the house and put the litter box inside so the cat can get used to it. She seems not to mind it at all, so I'm glad. We'll just have to see what happens when we put the door on it.

And of course there's been walking and treadmilling, and I'm reading Jane Eyre still, but it's taking a while. I don't get a lot of time to just sit and read, and the words are in really tiny print.

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.
