I feel like I’m the one on summer vacation! Except for the whole going to work thing. But no more checking homework assignments on-line! No more hounding the boy to work on projects! And he passed chemistry and geometry! Ah…bliss!
I’ve started a new quilt for my mother’s birthday in August, using Laura Gunn’s Poppy collection that I’ve had for about two years. These are beautiful fabrics!
Here’s a peek. I found a vinyl tablecloth with flannel backing for $5 and created a design wall in the bedroom on the only bare wall in the house! I have a feeling the design wall will be up more than it’s down… The picture stuck in the corner is my weight loss inspiration:
I’m guessing that was – oh, well thank you Santa, it was Summer ’03. Nine years ago. I can get back there, right? Just going to take willpower and a lot of hard work. To be honest with you, I’ve fallen way off the wagon. I’m still holding the ten pounds I gained over the holidays and I’ve been so lax when it comes to working out. There always seems to be some excuse – run errands instead, work through lunch to leave early on Friday, coming down with a horrific cold/sinus infection. I have excuses for days. But, I’m thinking about doing a 14 week challenge sponsored by Tom Venuto, whose books I’ve read and whose opinion I respect. Grand prize is a trip to Hawaii, and I’m in it to win it! And even if I don’t win the grand prize, I’ll finish with a better body and be back on the road to a healthy lifestyle.
And I guess now that I’ve blogged about it, I have to do it.
