February 1, 2014


It has been a heck of a few days!! After all that work, major tech issues thwarted my launch. Clearly I'm coming down with what's knocked Justin out for a couple of weeks now. But that didn't stop me from heading out for some fresh air, a little shopping and a stop for coffee. And look at this awesome set of Sharpies I found. What a treat! I'm pretty proud of myself for slowly but surely taking care of the tech issues, including making some bold decisions and for sticking with it and being ready to laucnh in the next couple of days. Hopefully by being slow and steady and gentle with myself (and getting out actually was me doing some self-care) things will turn around soon.


Felt like time for a cute cat pic!  So here's one for ya!


Yesterday I spent most of the day working on my Instant Pot video and getting up on my site as quickly as possible which was not easy, I always forget how long video takes to do. I definitely had some scaredy-cat moments and screw ups which I think made for fun watching which is good. I am getting a great response which is awesome. I do love doing the videos even though they can be so much work.

Jamie, wow, all that tech stuff and you haven't been feeling well? I am so sorry and gentle hug to Justin, I didn't know he was sick too.

Yes, slow and steady wins the race. I used to channel the energy of a turtle when I used to hike in Ridge Park. Just getting in there almost slayed me every time. I just took one step at a time and kept breathing.

Late add from me!

I'm so sorry that you are getting sick Jamie, but you've been such a trooper through working on the the issues and the launch at the same time. What a week!

Video editing does take a while, eh Suzie? Good news is, the video is awesome! Love the enthusiasm and the realness, and the fact you can have beans!

Late add from me :)

What an adorable photo of Gobo!!! I love it Shannon!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the video, thanks Shannon. :) I'm glad all those things came through and Jamie you inspired me to get some navy beans and try that soup you posted about.

I love this picture of Mr. Man. He's so regal.

Suzie, wow, that video is awesome! It really feels like a show! Very impressive. And the outtakes are awesome :)

Thanks for all the kind words. It's been a hard go. Hopefully I'll be feeling much better very soon!
