Finished a baby blanket that I either made too narrow and too long, or too wide and too short. Depends on how you look at it. Also finished my aunt's scarf that I started 7 or 8 months ago. Rather, decided it was long enough and quit. I have two more projects to finish before I let myself start anything new.
So, that's where those are. Thought you might like to know. *shrug*

While we're still waiting for the house in NM to sell, we've been keeping an eye on the local housing market here in GA. So far, trying to find something that meets our requirements and still has good schools without costing too much is like pulling teeth. Damned developments have sent house prices sky high, especially if they have acreage. There's one I'd like to have, but they want almost $400k. I don't think so.
But, since we can't do anything besides rent until the house sells, this is all just window shopping.

(We'll just ignore the fact that I think paleo is a misnomer for the particular lifestyle change I'm going to speak about. It's just easier than saying no grains, sugar, dairy, or legumes.)
About a month ago, I decided to give paleo eating a try again. My particular version is heavier on fruits and veggies than it is on meat. But in that time I have gone from 225 to 217. So, 8 pounds? Not bad for a month of very flawed eating. I'm to the point where if I eat grains or what have you, I feel so disgusting. So I've found it easier/better to just ignore the 85/15 rule that allows one to have 3 non-paleo meals per week. It's harder, but if I feel better then what the hell?
I'll keep updates on my weight loss and such to a minimum, though. This is supposed to be a homesteading blog, not a diet journal.
