the candy game

I recently finished a 14 oz. bag of M-M's I've had since Christmas, dark chocolate of course.  Bought another but didn't notice when I ate a few, so here's what I do now to pay attention to enjoying my indulgence.  I only care to eat a few a day, but decided to eat only ONE color at a time:
First I ate all the YELLOW ones...only a couple left in the bottom photo...then I started on GREEN...only could eat 'til they were,m.  Wonder what color I'll pick next time...anyway, I find I'm paying more attention to the color and taste.  I think CHOCOLATE needs all the attention I can give you agree?

sittin' 'n stitchin'

Over the last few years I've created a big stack of embroidered pieces.  I don't need anymore this week I've been working on turning some of the pieces into gift bags.  Here's a few, but more to follow:

Most are about 10" x 15"...100% cotton...I'd like to find an outlet to sell them...but, we'll see what happens.

6 little words...

I discovered a great new site for voracious readers OR blog-hoppers, like ME!  It's described in:
Not only might you find a new favorite fiction writer, but you may enter the contest for a great conference in Charlotte, NC.  I entered and am hoping.
 I've been working on a fiction book for juveniles for several months.  It's about an 11 year-old boy whose father is bank president of a three-employee bank.  The father has been stealing money in small amounts from the bank; his son discovers his stash and tries to save his father from prosecution.The setting is rural Iowa during the late 1930's...banking was different back then...I'm going on memories here, folks.
Well, that's it for today's blog...mostly want to let you know about a good thing...THE CONTEST.
