home sweet home!

Its so very cold outside and the heat in my car isnt working very well! And it was quite stormy on the way home tonight. Needless to say.. with all that heavy wet snow and not much heat, my window kept freezing up! I had to pull over on the side of the road and wait awhile for the heat to heat the window up enough for me to see! And then I only drove about 40 mph all the way home because the roads were snow covered and slippery! by the time I got home I was freezing! as, what little heat I was getting , I had to keep blowing on the window.. so my tootsies got pretty cold!

So as soon as I got here it was into pjs and warm booties.. and to the kitchen to feed the kittens and make some hot tea with honey! And some popcorn in my new hot air popper that I got for christmas! I love it! isnt it the cutest thing?

Popcorn is a daily staple for me since I've been losing weight.. especially air popped.. no points unless I eat double what this machine makes in one cycle~ I may turn into a popcorn kernel someday!

I didnt just have popcorn for dinner though.. (that was a predinner snack!) I also made some sweet potatoes in the oven and cooked burgers for Tony and I. I make the best burgers for only 6 points! 4 ozs of 95% lean ground beef, a wedge of laughing cow swiss cheese, on a weight watchers wheat english muffin, with roasted red peppers, onion, dijon mustard and picadilly relish! VERY MESSY and VERY GOOD!
So after eating and getting warmed up and cuddling with figgy.. I feel better and here I am! Though I just told my husband that I was coming in the living room to watch tv with him. (hardly ever do that!) Just feeling like vegging out for a change!
I have a feeling that I probably gained some weight over Christmas weekend! I learned that I can not live in the house with christmas cookies if I'm trying to lose weight!!!
OH girlies.. (and guys.. I think chris is the only guy that comes here.. but dont want to disclude him.. is that a word? disclude?)
anyways.. only 3 weeks til frannies kittens are due! she is getting so fat! I'm sooooo excited!
Well I'm off to the couch with some needle felting to work on! need to make some mice for a mouse swap!
hey.. one more thing... Im brewing up an idea.. NOT a swap.. but a challange to make something to keep not to give away.. more thinking to do .. I'll let you know when I get it figured out!
Later blogland!

Vivian....I hear you on the cookies in the house issue. If they are near, I must eat them. Congratulations on your weight loss so far. I am starting next week...isn't that the story of my life?? I'm intrigued by your new idea, and can't wait to hear what it is. I hope your holidays were amazing. Be safe, and keep warm.

Merry Belated Christmas, Viv! Your blog is so very cute.

I wish I lived closer. I'd beg my husband for one of your babies. Franny and Figgy are so cute. Do you have homes for them yet? Will you sell them all or keep a few? When our Sheba had her kittens, Mr. Bojo put his foot down and wouldn't let me keep any. I could never be a breeder--I'd end up a cat lady!
