I finally got to the frame yesterday afternoon and added some stitches into the cat and mouse.... after making a batch of soft pretzels. I made 8 of the round pretzels....I had one.... there was one left on the counter within an hour of them coming out of the oven. I guess the family likes them!
I am doing Noom - to try and loose a little weight so I don't become pre-diabetic or diabetic. I am about 7 weeks in and so far like the program. No foods are off limits, but they concentrate more on why you are craving things, social pressure, planning ahead and have provided some great tools to use for a sustainable lifestyle change rather than a 'diet'. I am down 8 pounds from where I started.... I wish it was more but.... I am sleeping a lot better, my clothes are fitting better and I feel better. Another tip from them - weigh yourself daily but find other ways to measure your progress!
Greg headed into work yesterday evening for the first time in a few weeks. I sent a text asking how he was around 6:30 - he said he was in a fog but managing. They have him working in the liquor store (a one person job) instead of stocking shelves in the main store. It is easier on his back and he is a trustworthy person to either open or close. I guess owning our own store helped and his managers trust him. They were having some issues there so were happy to pop Greg there so it was a win/win situation. He is scheduled to work the next 3 days..... The shot has helped the sciatic but the back pain remains....he is back to feeling how he was back in April.... sigh.
Today is my 'day off' work. I have plans to sew today! I want to make progress on machine quilting the 2018 RSC quilt. It is pinned and ready to go.
I also need to prep more of my Endless Diamond blocks. I quickly prepped one corner for hand work for a conference call at work yesterday.
Some machine stitching to finish off the Mini Magic Star blocks will also happen. Lets hope I cut these out correctly!
I also need to get some of my RSC purple blocks made.
I'd better finish off this post and get moving!
Peanut was sunning himself outside my office yesterday looking out the glass door in the 'garage'. Spoiled boy.
