Get the Pudge Outta Here! 30-Day Challenge

Kicking off June with a 30-Day Challenge to get my health back on track because true confession time; I've gained a bit of chub and it's gotta go! Sometimes people do this whole, don't talk about if you've gained weight, or don't tell someone who has gained weight that they need to drop it but I say, balls to that.

I gained weight.

It's uncomfortable on my short frame.

It's gotta go.

Which is kinda perfect because I want to blog more and this is something to share as I go. I'll share my Buddha bowls, non-dairy ice cream and whatever other fun things I make.

Ah ... That feels better, already.

And I dunno why June? Just sorta feels like the right thing. Just feels like all of the pieces are coming together and that makes this challenge, fun. But I've no doubt, there will be times when it won't be fun, and I'll write about that too.

Anyone who wants to join, is more than welcome. Doesn't have to be about weight, comfort or anything. It can be a 30-day challenge to spend more time reading, being outside or anything at all.

For me, this extra weight is uncomfortable on my frame so that's the focus. Now with Monster (or treadmill), gone, I'll get back to other forms of exercise. Currently shopping for a small indoor trampoline. But I also love my tai chi and yoga so it's time to make time for that. Love to jog and walk and work on the yard. Lots of fun ahead. Even without Monster.

And that my Booggerbutts, is all that's fit to print.

Thanks for reading! Talk again soon.

It’s a 50-plate pile up at my house and I’m smackdab in the middle of it. If I stop drawing cartoons, I’d get dish done MUCHfaster.

In other news, my Ninja Creami arrived and soon I’mgonna play, play, play. And in other, other news, today I ordered more paint toplay with.

Big day.

For the ice cream, I'll continue with my non-dairy, no eggs, low sugar and no oil, formulas. I've done this for years in blenders and food processors (both big and small), but I just wanted to try the Ninja Creami and when the sale hit, I had to snag it.

My machine came with 5 containers, which are about 1-2 servings for each container. The mixture gets frozen overnight in each container and then once ready, placed in a machine that looks like a coffee maker.

It's pretty cool.

And lastly, for the new paint, it's a whicker basket for a friend and possibly a front door for home. Or maybe the freezer. Or maybe the fridge. Not sure yet. Paint won't get here until next week so I have some time.

And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print. Time to crank the Bon Jovi and finish this 50-plate pile up!

Whisk, out.

Melted Brain & Wiggy's Gotcha Day

You know what? It's been so long since I posted on Blogger and IG that I almost forgot how to do both. I'm trying to add a photo and I feel like my brain is melting and can't figure it out. Think I got it now though.
Guess what else? Today is Wiggy's Gotcha Day! 11 years flew by since we got her at the puppy pound. She didn't even know how to use stairs. Now she bolts up them like lightening, even at 11.
Best dog, ever!
In other news, there's been a lot of reno/demo, moving of things, moving of rooms and building going on. Almost too many things at once but it's a big space. In the end, I'll have 350 square feet for a kitchen and studio area or 32.5 square meters. To me, that's huge. Pictures to come, but for today, just the shot of Miss Wiggy on her Gotcha Day!
Know what else? I miss reading and writing blogs. I don't even know how long I've been away. Awhile. And remember Friday Questions? Those were fun. I'd like to bring that back. But for now, I just wanna say howdy, and show off Miss Wiggy on her Gotcha Day!
See you Boogerbutts soon, if not sooner.
Whisk, out.

I'm Back, Baby! (and we're debt-free!)

Hello Boogerbutts!

Guess what? It's been 13 months of living DEBT FREE! We got out of debt just over a year ago and I still cannot stop smiling.

In other news, tomorrow our new fridge and oven arrive and I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to sleep tonight.

I went for a smaller no-frills oven and a thinner, taller fridge. The fridge we have now, we could bury ourselves in and still have room for more.

It's honkin' huge.

I lose stuff all the time in the back because my arms don't reach. That, and the fridge is about dead anyway, so this was the perfect time. I could have gotten it fixed but the smaller, thinner fridge is something I've wanted for a long time so I just went for it.

Insert BIG SMILE, here.

Total budget for the appliances: 2,000 smackers and we came in under budget with 427 left. That included the shipping, taxes and removal of the old stuff.

Now, the real question is ... what colour will I chalk paint the new fridge and oven?

I'm crazy into Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Pictures to come another day. For right now, I gotta get my butt in gear and move kitchen stuff out of the way for the deliveries.


And that my Boogerbutts, is all that's fit to print. Hope you are well and I'll be about later to catch up on your blogs because I've been way for a year but now, I'm back, baby!

Cheers and boogie boogie.
