So.... after I find my desk... ha ha.... this is a project I plan to do. Make a book. Make it cute and full of art. How neat! I can't wait. Well...I can. ;)
And who inspired me? Well you know who you are. ;)
Got to get busy with organizing all the mess on my desk. Get it all placed where it needs to go.
It will be a nice project to work on when the weather obviously isn't enjoyable. We're looking at really cold temperatures. And more snow. I don't remember putting in an order for snow!
Have a good morning or evening....where ever you may be. :o)
and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste at the holiday parties, had not gone to waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!! When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared; The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared.
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese and the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please." As I dressed myself in husband's old shirt and prepared once again to do battle with dirt-- As I said to myself, as I only can
You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!!
So--away with last of sour cream dip, Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip every last bit of food that I like must be banished till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick. I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie, I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore-- But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

This cooker will make up to 3 cups of cooked rice...great for a smaller household. Cooks fast.
Baby carrots in the top. Used about half the bag. At the end of cooking time, the carrots were nicely steamed and tasty to boot.
Here's the rice just about to bubble. Just season your rice as you like.
The rice will cook to slightly sticky.
Each piece cleans nicely. Wash by hand.
