The name of the Blog says it All.

It has been so long since I blogged about anything that I am going to do a little bit quick catch -up.

On October 1, 2010 after 45 years being a heavy smoker, I quit smoking. It has been 2 months now and I feel better than I ever imagined I could. I guess what they say is really true...that when the time is right the quitting is easy. I smoked my last cigarette the night of September 30 and never looked back. That is not to say I have not had a craving or two, but not bad enough to go buy any. Yea me!

I became mom to baby kitties in July. We ended up keeping 2 of them. It is like having 3 year old twins around. What one doesn't think of the other does. They are adorable and sweet and fun, and affectionate. The yellow is named Butter Bean and the gray one in Lentil.

Because I have the 2 rambunctious kittens in the house I am not doing up the Christmas decorations like I normally do. But, I have to do some decorating. I have been haunting the thrift stores lately looking for additions to what I already have, that which will make a new and different arrangement on top of the entertainment center. I will post a picture when I get something figured out.

Every winter I wonder why I put myself through another Minnesota winter. I really don't like the cold, and I loath snow. We have already had winter for a month now and I am crying for April. We had a snow storm over Thanksgiving weekend, one last weekend, and another one is blowing in tonight. We have roughly 20 inches of the ugly white stuff on the ground already.

This is what I did yesterday. Can you guess?

I think you all are now up to date with life in my world.
I would like to post more often. Everyday I find myself thinking, "Oh that would be a good blog post." But do I post? Not so much.


  1. Congratulations on quitting smoking! And I love the names you picked out for the kittens. I might have to borrow the bean theme if I ever get another cat.

  2. Congratulations on quitting! My grandfather tried for years and was never successful! So glad you are feeling great!

    Sweet kitties, glad you are enjoying them!
