Tough theme, this week. I started thinking about what I've been doing for "entertainment" lately, and it came to me. Do you remember one of last month's topics, "Creamy"? Well, this is how it turned out:
First, I'm delighted to tell you that, as of this writing, MJ has lost 50 pounds, his blood sugar has dropped below the magic "diabetes" line, and the doctor has cut his medication in half. He'll test again in another 3 months, and we're keeping our fingers crossed that the improvement continues.
Some of you asked for the recipe for the cheesecake when I got it to where I want it, because either you or loved ones have the same issue, or you'd just like to eat a little healthier without sacrificing foods you love. I've published these recipes on my other blog, Flamingo Musings, with notes, tips, and tricks. The recipe for the plain Guilt-Free Cheesecake is here. My post on the Guilt-Free Chocolate Marble Cheesecake is here.
That's the other thing - the Chocolate Marble Cheesecake was chosen to be featured on Cheesecake-Recipes.org! You can find the complete recipe by clicking that green badge.
And that, boys and girls, is what I've been doing for "entertainment"!

The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Rock"
A couple of years ago, MJ and I attended a Hindu wedding. At one point in the ceremony, the bride places her foot on a rock, illustrating her promise to be the rock, the foundation of their home (I forgot what he's supposed to be doing there). I've always thought of it more as her demonstration that she's putting her foot down. ;-)

This is what the Hubs and I have spent the better part of the last few months' worth of weekends digging out from under. No, it's not our house, but my in-laws'. The MIL wouldn't let anyone touch a damn thing in there, while she was alive. When she passed away at the end of January, we saw our opportunity.
Would you believe there's a couch, coffee table, and end table under there?
Twenty years, and we had no idea that we would be doing archaeological excavations in a 6th floor condo! Click on the images for details - if you dare!
I'm attempting to update the look of this blog, and it's not happening quite the way - or as easily - as Flamingo Musings, so please bear with me!

If you follow my other blog, Flamingo Musings, you might already know that my house was burglarized several days ago. And yes, they got my shiny new laptop with all my photos on it. So, while I backed up my drive before I went on vacation, I hadn't yet had the chance when we returned, and I haven't replaced the laptop yet. I'm using my husband's desktop, in the meantime, but it's just not the same, you know?
The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Pink"
As if this blog weren't pink enough for you! In any case, I'm stealing one of my vacation photos from Flamingo Musings for this week's theme:
It's been a mixed bag, this week... let's hope the stars align in a way more favorable position in the days ahead!
