I know I've been MIA this week but everything is fine here. Its just been busy. I have made plans to go to Memphis next week for 4 full days so I've been gearing up for that. Finally, got back to tracking my food. Yesterday, I chopped up some tomato and cucumber, added a small pouch of water packed tuna and served it all to myself with 6 Fat Free whole grain crackers.....only 2 points for lunch. This was good since I went to eat dinner at church where there was Chicken Casserole over rice, green beans, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. The most difficult part of the first week on WW for me is going to sleep when I go to bed. Did you know that all that unhealthy eating and snacking is like a drug? When I stop eating at dinner, by bedtime, I'm hungry. No worry, it will all settle down after the first couple of weeks.
Last week, we didn't see the Red Headed Woodpeckers at all after they came to the feeder on the weekend with their offspring. We thought maybe they'd migrated already. Then on Saturday, we saw the adult catching insects and feeding the wee ones in the pine tree out back.
We had another workshop on Tuesday to get ready for our County Wide Card Workshop. We now have all 911 card kits ready to go. There will be a little trimming on some of them but mostly just some gluing. The supplies for each card plus a photo of the finished look and all instructions are in a zip lock bag. I hope we have a good turn out for this event.
I picked up the Princess on my way home that day and she finished her patchwork basket. The lining was a little large for the basket but she did a fantastic job. I was so proud of her. I did some stitching on my TTS blocks while she was at the sewing machine. I am almost finished with the embroidery and will begin putting it all together soon.
Yesterday, I worked on two Pinwheel table runners. I finished the blocks for both. I followed Fiona's tutorial here. She is an awesome instructor.
I had to take Wonder Boy to his Orthodontist appointment so I didn't get to finish this post earlier. We were only there for a few minutes. The Princess went with us. I called and asked their Dad if I had time to have lunch with them before he left for their vacation near Atlanta. He said sure so we went to my favorite place for Chicken Tenders, O'Charley's. We had to wait awhile for them to open but it wasn't too hot with the doors and windows open in the van and I got to chat with both of them. I spend much more time with her than with him so this was a treat. The restaurant opens at 11:00 but we were able to go in a few minutes early so we were finished by 11:30. I had broccoli with my chicken and no rolls.
While we were sitting there, I made a date with him for dinner the week before school starts.
So, now I'm home, don't want to do anything. Are you like that? I am going to do a little embroidery and hopefully finish this wreath so I can go put the 5 blocks together.
Discovered another blogger in my area this morning and she's a quilter, too.
Tomorrow, I have to go walk two dogs in the afternoon, Yoshi and Gloria. My daughter is keeping Gloria for a friend. I'll wait until then to go to the grocery store.
Hopefully, I'll be back on schedule next week.
