Thirteenth Chance & A Giveaway!

Do you love to read?  I do.  I can’t even go to sleep at night without reading before closing my eyes.  I haven’t picked up and read a real live book in years.  I had one of the first IPads and used it to read.  Then about 2 years ago I bought my first Kindle.

Puff Stitch Hat

This past Sunday, my daughter and I stopped at Walmart for the sole purpose of looking at yarn.  I knew I wanted to make a hat.  I had found a pattern on Ravelry that I wanted to try.  I grabbed some yarn and buttons, but then I came across some beautiful Unforgettable Yarn by Red

Adventures in Woodburning

Bunny Quilt WIP

My youngest niece turned one yesterday and I started this quilt when she was still in the womb… it’s still not done.  Do you ever have those types of projects that seem to be a work-in-progress (WIP) for much too long? I love this cute little pattern.  I got it from Wendi Gratz’ site Shiny

When can you call it a win? At work we’ve been having weight loss competitions.  They only last one or two months, which is great for short term goals.  We’ll have 8 to 12 people join in usually.  It’s short, motivating and helpful overall.  The really cool thing is the top 1/2 of the people

Addicted

Hi, my name is Kandra and I’m addicted to sugar.  Worse than that…. sugar is slowly killing me.  But I love it. I. LOVE. SUGAR. And it doesn’t love me back. I took my fasting glucose this morning and it was at 250.  Yesterday 260.  I feel like crap and suffered from a migraine earlier
