Ready, set, go

I set my timer for 10 minutes. Let's see what I can do.

I took today off so I could be in the salon tomorrow for a night of mini-make-overs. It's a first and I thought it might be something my clients would try. We carry Jane Iredale make-up. Good stuff, only carried in salons.

I spent the day at the folk's. I made 2 lasagna's...one that I baked for them and one that I took home to freeze. It was nice to know that I was hanging out for the day and not there with a time schedule. I spent most of the day cooking. I ate potato chips for lunch. And mini-Dove bars for dessert. Decadent.

Have you surmised that Emily's boyfriend spends most of his time over here? I've come to like it. It used to be Emily upstairs on her computer and me downstairs on the couch. Now it's like I have a little family. I'm cooking more. They're downstairs. It's definitely a change.

I just checked the timer. Five minutes to go. Sometimes I don't blog because I don't think I have the time. I'm seeing that I don't have to write a novel.

I started reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for my December book club. Very interesting from the start. Anyone know about her story? I even have time for a link! Check it out if you can. The story is current and poses many ethical questions. And if you like knowledge, well, check it out. I'm about to get into bed, very early, and do some reading.

Timer went off and I'm in overtime, so, adios friends.

That timed thing is pretty fun, huh? I wonder how often we can get away with it.

How fun that Emily's boyfriend makes such a great addition to your little family and brings you all closer.

I'll have to check out that book (via your link!)

I love being able to go to my Mom's and know I'm not on a time table. No scheduled things to do, etc. My sister is notorious for that kind of thing...drives me crazy.

Enjoy your day!

We used to set the timer and do 15 minute cleaning spree when the kids were little. That worked well. Thanks for reminding me.

I think I don't have time to blog, then waste so much time checking blogs that have not been updated and checking FB all day.

Enjoy the mini make overs, sounds like fun!

Busy, busy day!

The mini make over thing sounds interesting. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.

I like the 10 minute idea! Like one of the above posters, I sometimes do the 15 minute cleaning deal. I must admit I'm not very good at it because once I get started on something, I can't seem to stop until I finish. That's good in some ways and not so good in other ways.

Mmmm~ Lasagna! Also, the 10minute blogging is pretty cool thing to do, it's like writing the things you have in mind for the whole 10-minute duration.
