So if you look over at my links, and I think I’ve mentioned it several times, you will find a blog called Nenni’s World.  Well she’s helping out a child in Colorado who  is sending Flat Alyssa through the mail to learn about other areas and other people. But there was just one hitch!  The little girls relatives all live in her area and now they really have nowhere to send Flat Alyssa. As a result, Jennifer over at Nenni’s World has asked us to blog about our areas and then she is going to give the information to Flat Alyssa as part of her visit with her. I know it’s a bit of rambling and sorry if it’s not really coherent.  But you can always visit Jennifer’s site Nenni’s World for a better explanation.  And as if you didn’t know that much about me already, maybe this will help!

Dear Flat Alyssa,

I’m Donna and I live in Sierra Madre, CA.  I moved here from my home state of Louisiana.  I tought I’d share some about that state and the state that I went to school in called Alabama.  Where I lived in Louisiana was a town called Bossier City.  My apartment was right outside of Barksdale Air Force Base.  It’s a very flat area and very loud at times with the planes.  It was a very popular area for gambling as we had several casinos in the area.  The weather is mostly hot in the summer with a high humidity which made it sticky and really hot.  It’s very different from the dry heat in California.  I went to school in Alabama and the weather is pretty much the same.  Winter’s cold and summer’s super hot.  It wasn’t very different from Louisiana except it was a college town.  You know, centered around the University that was located there.  I very much preferred Louisiana over Alabama.

As for me, I’m Donna.  I’m 33 and married to my hubby D.  We’ll be married for two years in October.  We have a Boston Terrier who is 3.  I love to blog.  And read, and write, and scrapbook, and my most recent love is photography, but I haven’t gotten to do much lately.  For the first in 33 years, I broke my ankle this past December.  But now I’m walking again, and out looking for a job.  My favorite colors are pink, yellow and brown.

Good luck on your travels, we all want to hear how they turn out!

So I haven’t really been “feelin” like blogging. But as updates go I guess that I should. Yesterday we started the “no fast food for 30 days” So far we’re holding up good but hey it’s only the second day. I’m sort of excited about it. I know in the end, I’ll be on my way to my healthy weight. I gave blood Saturday. You should see the bruise. Well, actually, I’ll take a picture of it later and post it. Might be my picture of the day, who knows. I cooked my first dinner last night for the family at least once every two months. It was simple and nice. A beef roast with carrots, potatoes, celery and onion. I fixed some fresh picked snap beans and potatoes to go with it. When we got to mom’s I fixed tea and it turned out really good. The roast you didn’t have to cut, you could just pick your piece up with a fork. YUMMMYYYYY.
I think date night will be a little different for us for awhile. We’re plugging along on things and trying to figure out what our overall long term game plan is going to be. I bought “The Secret” when we were in Portland at Powell’s and finished it today. I need to get Dirk to read it. Other than that, not much is going on in life. I think my pink eye is gone, thank goodness. Maybe the next post will be more exciting. HAHA.. Guess we’ll see huh!!!

Until then,
Love everyone!
