Getting Started

I have started my adventures into blogging just in time.  I have only been on GoodReads for about a month, and I’m still working on building my library.  After a frenzy of crafting during the holiday season (the whole fam got homemade gifts), I am now easing back into my favorite crafting project – glass painting – and I have three small candle holders to work on.  Today is Day One of Weight Watchers … thanks to that inspiring lecture given to me by my doctor.  And I have a local trip to Central California coming up in February and a huge international trip around Cape Horn in March.  The perfect time to start is now, I say.


Current Stats

Weight:  232 pounds (ugh)

Miles Biked:  24

To the doctor’s office and back!  Woohoo!  And I still got told I gained too much weight 🙂

Books:  Currently on The Conquest of the Ocean by Brian Lavery

Crafts:  Glass candle holders for my three girlfriends


Any deep and profound insights?  Not yet, but I know this adventure really is just getting started … and that brings to mind one of my favorite quotes:  The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  Thanks Lao Tzu for that one because I will need to remember that.
