Happy Friday!

I must stop baking! Or this will be me:

See I’ve been researching bakeries (secret project!!), then I keep finding these recipes…like the lemon cookies I made last Friday that are now all gone.  You can find the recipe here  http://www.laurenslatest.com/lemon-crinkle-cookies/

Wizard is NO HELP! He would rather I bake than keep the weight off.  All these years, he has never once said a word about my weight…

Oh wait, that’s a total lie. When I was pregnant with our first son and we were driving on the freeway, he offered to stop at the truck scale so I could weight myself.  Then laughed himself sick.

Think I held a grudge for that one long enough? Bhahahaha!!!

But otherwise, nope, he never says a word about my weight.  But I am trying ignore all the fat and carbs once more.  For a while there I got a little thinner than I intended with BLB, but this month or six weeks, I’m slacking off too much. I’m going back to the gym next week! My back/side issue better just suck it up :-)

This weekend we have an small reunion thing to go to for Wizard.  Otherwise, it’ll be business as usual. I’ll be trying really hard NOT to think about the pastries stuffed with ricotta cheese and lemon curd I saw on a TV show called Unique Sweets. I so bet I could make those…

I. Must. Resist!

Do you have any big weekend plans? Have a great one!!!

P.S. If you haven’t done it yet, be sure to check out our own Silver James’s latest release, Wolf Moon. I have it on my Kindle!

    You are too funny :). I love the witch pict. I know what you mean though, I’m in a baking mood too. Wizard is so nice. John always has something to say about my weight and I’m REALLY fit. I’m 5’2″ and 105# mostly muscle. So yes, he does often have a sore arm where I smack him ;).

    Have a great time at the reunion.

    I’m going to my kids godmother’s daughters wedding Saturday. It’s so hard to think of her as old enough to be getting married :).

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hey! I didn’t tell you to post my picture on here! Whatever possessed me to think I could pull off that black bikini? ;o)

    Seriously, though. I totally hear you on the sweets. I made an incredible apple crisp a couple days ago. (It’s fruit, so it can’t be all bad… even if it does have a cup of brown sugar in it.) And I still have apples left, so I’m thinking apple bread or apple cranberry bread. I hope you poked the Wizard hard for his truck scale comment. Sheesh. Men.

    Oh, and through a lucky break, I got the stray kitten onto a bus headed for Every Creature Counts – a no kill shelter in the Denver area.

    Big weekend plans = football. And maybe getting back to work. The books… they call to me.

    I can’t think of my body in terms of weight or I get obsessive and depressed. I have to look at my self in terms of my overall health- My heart is good, blood pressure low (when not dealing with kids). I can fast walk for 30 min without falling over. :-D
    So I am ok.

    Tonight is another security job at the local football game so I will get 5 hours of walking/standing in tonight. Saturday I am going to Lora Leigh’s book club meeting and pot luck. I found out she has one every month near me at the RAW weekend i went to in Sept. Author Pamela Palmer will be there and the club has read her book Obsessive and will talk with her about it. I am bringing a crock pot full of chicken gumbo soup with me. I expect to have fun there then it is back to house cleaning on sunday.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    Awwww, thanks for the promo, Jen! You’re the best witch ever! What is it about men and their warped senses of humor? Lawyer Guy got me yesterday and I have the photos to prove it! (over on my blog…)

    I have chapter meeting this weekend and at some point LG and I are taking The Only and Baseball Boy out to celebrate. She was offered a permanent job yesterday–a month early! (The company hires everyone “temporary” for 90 days for a probationary period and don’t normally extend full employment (including benefits!!!!) until the end of the temp time. We are doing the happy dance over in this neck of the woods!

    Have a great weekend, witches! The appletinis are on me!!!

    Viki, you are tiny! How can he have anything to say? Wizard normally only makes fun of me on things that don’t bother me. Like my brain dead moments when I’m thinking about my book not what I’m doing.

    I think it’s the time of year that makes us want to bake.

    Hope the wedding is lovely!

    B.E., that pic doesn’t look anything like you! LOL!

    Well you must use up those apples, so your kind of forced to bake :-)

    Great news on the little kitty. I’m sure they will find him a wonderful home.

    Back to work on another book, right? I’m trying to get into my next one while waiting for edits I thought I was supposed to have by now. Hmm, I should check into that.

    Kat, that’s a really smart way to approach your health :-)

    The Lora Leigh book club sounds like a blast! You’re so lucky! Have a great time!

    Silver, I’d have screamed if I was you! LOL! But at least Boone warned you :-)

    Congrats to The Only!!! She’s obviously proved herself and deserves the full time permanent position! That is news to celebrate!

    Have fun at your meeting!

    Back to work on a suspense I never quite finished, I think. Or maybe I’ll tackle that MG idea I had last year. Something.
