Nikki's Challenge-Week Twelve

Well, Nikki's Challenge has become, for me, more of just a reason to blog. :)

This past Friday we went to Dialog in the Dark. It was amazing. It was so neat to try to get around rooms without being able to see anything and to figure out what you were holding. You learn to live by touch and sound. The only thing I identified in Kroger was the Italian salad dressing. :)

I'm working a project, but I need help. I need fun games for anywhere from 1 player to group games. They need to be games that require few or no accessories other than chairs. And no really rough games. If you can think of any that fit this description, please let me know. I'm trying to find as many as possible.

I still don't have pictures of my haircut. It's pretty much just like the other one only shorter. :) I'll try to get pictures sometime soon. Maybe. But here are some other pictures for now. Enjoy!

Nikki's Challenge-Week Eleven

This past week I've been running. Three times. I've gone a mile and a half each time. Next Saturday we're going two miles. :) Not much else going on over this way. I've been reading a lot. Oh, and I just found out about (and now own) the greatest sewn invention: The Quillow. They're awesome! They can be used like a blanket or folded up and used as a pillow! They just fascinate me. They're just so cool! :) Anyway, I have the one I got and I'll be using it to make a pattern so that I can make more.

I haven't gotten a chance to work on a new look yet, but hopefully it won't be too much longer.

I don't have any good pictures of my haircut on the computer yet, so here's some pictures from my week. Enjoy!

Nikki's Challenge-Week Ten

I got pictures of my new haircut, but they're not on the computer yet. As for my accomplishment this week, I organized our spice cabinet. 8) Frisbee got rained out most of the way through and I drove the golf cart home...with the windshield down. :) This week I also joined a running club here in town that one of my friends started. We had our first run this morning - 1 1/2 miles. Needless to say, I walked part and ran part.

For those of you who voted on my poll that you don't like the new look, please vote on my new polls. I'm trying to decide how to do my new background, and I know some of you don't like it because it's hard to read, so I'm trying to figure out what colors need to be fixed.

I haven't been taking many pictures lately, so I'm running out of ones to post. I don't feel like digging around right now trying to find more, so here's one that was easy to find. Enjoy!

Nikki's Challenge-Week Nine

This past week I've been reading quite a bit. I've finished almost one book a day. I've also been working on helping Mom sort through stuff from the convention and take care of it all. And on Wednesday we went to a Braves game. Friday we went to a mall downtown. Saturday was a busy day. Jay and I went to the parade in the morning. We all went to the church picnic in the afternoon. In the late afternoon we went to another party. In the evening, some of our friends came over and all thirteen of us piled on to our golf cart to ride up to the golf course to play frisbee and watch the fireworks. Sunday evening we went to another family's house to watch more fireworks. Yesterday I got a haircut. I'd say none of it's longer than five inches. :) I'll try to get some pictures of it on here soon. The back is really curly now, but the front and the top layer are still kinda just wavy. Last week was Jo's birthday, too. Happy Birthday, Jo!

So, that's what I've been up to for now. The pictures below are from a scavenger hunt I was a part of a while ago. Enjoy!
