Today, as I was eating lunch I kept hearing something moving wood around, or knocking. It kept on as if someone were outside the door. I got a little nervous and went to investigate. To my surprise, the great big hen was at the door knocking! It was hilarious to see since I thought it could be an intruder. I opened the door and it frightened her so I quickly closed the door again. She hung around for the longest. I wonder what she's thinking. There are no bugs on the porch. I thought she might come inside out of curiosity. That wouldn't really be a good thing, especially if she got scared and I had to chase her around! It would be funny, though. Not to mention chicken poo everywhere! On second thought, I won't open the door for her again!
My workouts are coming along very good. I do twenty-five minutes of Zumba, then my strength training. I really love it! My body has changed a lot since I started this new routine. I can hardly wait to get back into my skinny jeans! I'm not sending them to the thrift store just yet! I'm staying fuller longer with eating more protein and whole grains. I have been incorporating more beans into our meals. They provide protein and fiber, thus keeping us fuller longer. The guys aren't complaining, as I haven't really changed the evening meals. Just what I eat throughout the day.
I haven't really been crafting much lately. I love to craft but I can't seem to find what I want to do. There are so many pretty things to make, but I can't decide which ones are for me. Randy said for me to just keep trying until I find the right thing, then perfect it. That sounds like a good idea! I just don't seem to have the same enthusiasm as I did during the holidays. Maybe I'll find my 'thing' soon! I guess right now I've been focused on following healthier recipes and working out. We did get the room up stairs more organized. I love it up there now! There's so much more room! Wished ya'll could join me in a class of Zumba! I could teach a Zumba class, but that means I'd have to be away from home. I don't really want to do that. It wouldn't be worth the drive to town and back. Oh well, I'll just stick to doing what I like.
It's nice to see the days getting longer! I enjoy beautiful sunsets almost everyday! I just wished my camera could catch the beauty! Look outside your window tomorrow and capture the beautiful sunset. It will make you appreciate God's creation! Have a great week! Blessings from Bama!
