Two weeks have past since my last blog!!!
I guess I've been busy.... lets see if I can recap!
Thursday Pilate's! (Number 1 on my list!) My first class had my previous instructor as the teacher! She is awesome and left 6ish months ago to instruct in White Horse. Apparently she is coming back!!! I didn't hear for how many classes! Second class I missed due to being snowed in and blogging!!!! Third class I had who I thought was the regular instructor. Excellent instructor if you are looking for perfection and have a lot of Pilate's experience. Not so great for me... every other move she would stand beside me and say things like "oh, it shouldn't look like that" or my personnel favorite "Oh! That's not good!!!" It got to the point that I couldn't make a move because I thought I was going to do irreparable damage! Was I ever happy when I talked with her after class to find out that she was the substitute! She's a very good instructor although I think my not striving for perfection attitude wasn't going to fly with her! Last Thursday my previous instructor was back and I had an awesome Pilate's/Yoga fusion class that leaves me feeling warm and snuggly and stress free at the end! That's what I'm all about!
Friday, February 28, Sandy & I headed 'cross the border for a fantastic day of fabric shopping at some of our favorite quilt stores! I found some browns and light background fabrics for "Henrietta Squirrel". I also found the inside border for the squirrel table runner I'm making! Boy! I really do love squirrels!
I missed the first Zumba class (number 2 on my list!) Suddenly Susan went to the free Zumba class on Sunday with me! Lots of fun!!!!! I'm so excited that I joined Zumba! Dance! Dance! Dance! Last Friday I made it to my morning class - packed with a bunch of women all of us smiling and jittering like school girls at a sock hop!!!! There's a wall of mirror at the front of the class and you can see us all grinning!!! It's the greatest! I can't believe I'm only doing this once a week! We all clap at the end of each song as in "Way to go! Aren't we something!!!" The teacher's great and encouraging and does a lot of great moves! I really like the dance we do to the song "Zumbalicious" Oh Yes We Are!!!! I shimmy like a board and can't do all the moves but I'm really something in my mind!!!! I can't believe this counts as exercise!!!
Monday Rod & I went snowshoeing at Hollyburn! Snowshoeing is Number 12 on my list of 52! I'm really getting a lot accomplished off my list!!! We had a fun time! We got to a sign that warned us of avalanches and that it was extremely dangerous but we went on anyways - up a steep hill until I said "I'm good" Then we slid down on our bums!!! It was thrilling! Great workout with my guy! Breezy was still exhausted the next day! She covers a lot of ground!
Our Como Lake Quilters Group had our monthly "tin exchange". Val and I managed to snag one tin we've done and one new one for the month! Feeling pretty smug!!! Takes a lot of brain power for us to figure out what tins were going for! Previously we would each take one tin and then when we got together to work on our blocks we would do each others tin. Now when we get that tin as our own we just slip our premade block in and both do the new tin. Whoever signed the new tin out puts in their block, the other of us keeps it for their turn. Were like quilting criminals in our minds! It was great this past Monday when we got together to sew - the blocks took us all day! Tiny pieces! Lots of cutting and figuring out the pattern!
Number 7 of List of 52
I made Hurf's Halibut. I'm thinking it would taste great with the right ingredients. I improvised too much! The recipe has 6 ingredients and I changed 4!!!
Mayonnaise (I used light)
Jalapeno pepper (I used pickled)
fresh ginger (I used dry - not so good!)
Halibut (I used Cod)
Last night I put together Healthy Fridge Muffins. Today I baked them and then told Rod he could take them to our cabin and throw them off the dock! Lot's of pouting as they are hard little beasts!
Well, Rod really thinks they are good! He likes how "Healthy" they are! He was naming all the things he liked in them - carrot, apple, cinnamon - and was happy to hear they had oats and whole wheat flour in them. He'd even like it if I made them again... I'm still pouting.
That's 5 Whitewater Cooks recipes down 7 to go (but I think I'll be making more than 12 recipes - really beautiful books!)
Well - that was long - I really should blog more often - was to serious trying to recap a bunch of stuff!!!
