I may be addicted to Blanco del Oro grapefruits.

[ profile] otana: That's OK honey, this is LA. There will be a clinic for it, somewhere.

... I don't need help. I need more yellow grapefruit! :3

I'm at the point where I haven't updated LJ so long, it's impossible to catch up.

Good things are happening at work - Boss from Hell is leaving, Boss of the Golden Age of the Department is taking over. Bright new software program on the horizon.

Otana got her green card today. ^____^ We celebrated with Indian food. There was a time when you couldn't have gotten me to try Indian food with a herd of wild horses; well, Otana made it at home and showed me it didn't have to be spicy, and when it's NOT spicy I enjoy it! It still has been a little spicy in restaurants, but the mint yogurt drink cuts that easily.

Speaking of food, Devil's food cake and carrot cake are among her recent accomplishments. Despite this, I seem to have lost weight... 6_6

Reorganization of the house progressing slowly but steadily. Big improvement getting rid of the oversized papasan chair. It was nothing but a gathering place for stuff, really.

Avon is going well, and has actually been a help financially. Now if only I can keep myself from ordering so many shinies that it negates the earnings...

Another from BH&G New Cook Book... the pumpkin pie recipe was a hit at Thanksgiving, so we decided to save it too.  Cut for the disinterested )

I swear to god I have lost weight. These pants have always been loose, but now they seem loosER.

We have not been able to do walks this week, what with a combination of lack of planning and a rather nasty head cold, but we have still been working on the diet issue. If I need to snack, I make it dried fruit &/or nuts, and serving sizes are kept small.

In related news, the lunch fairies seem to have invaded our home and left me tupperware full of the best damn chicken noodle soup I've ever had. I'm not kidding. Homemade chicken noodle soup has always had the disadvantage - for me - of containing stray bones and bits of fat. Not this time! Add to that incredibly flavorful broth, linguine noodles, potatoes, carrots, celery... I'm not just flattering [ profile] otana when I say it's the best chicken noodle soup ever, I'm being serious!

Them fairies also left a Japanese mochi/pancake dessert, and a note. The note blamed the food on 'tana, but I'm not fooled by those crafty fairies. It was fairies, I tell you!

Anyway I think I'm going to have to tighten the waistband on these pants.
