Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

At least thte knitting works

Happily knitting away at the bamboo and tencel swatch / tank-top. Loving it more as it grows (though the two strands of yarn sometimes go their seperate ways and I need to tink back to re-unite them. couples counseling for fibers.)

Weight Watchers was a bit of a disapointment, though. I thought I had been good all week long. I really did. And I gained six tenths of a pound. I may need to eat more than I have since I have been running just at the bottom limit of my allowance, and my metabolism may be slowing to compensate. I'm what farmers call, "an easy keeper." I put on weight quickly on just about any kind of feed, and lose it very slowly. That which is good in a cow is not fashionable or even healthy in a matron.

But I have been GOOD! so I took myself to Joanne's to buy a fat quarter of fabric to cheer myself up. Only one, right? Maybe three dollars, max. Well, they're on sale for 99 cents each. So I got six. And I had to get a frame and a mat for a picture to send my MIL before Sunday. And some big bright buttons jumped into my bag (6 for only $2. That's a mere fifty cents a button!) And a magazine and some stickers slipped past my defenses as well. I have no self-control at all! (But it was fun!)

It's sunny today. Yeeeha! Here is my favorite viewL looking up through the leaves. I love the varied layers of greens. If I get enough chores done, I think I'll take the wheel outside for a spin in the shade this afternoon.

And I'll have weight loss next week. If I have to stand there stark nekkid, I will.

    The tank is looking gorgeous, and I absolutely love that lacy leafy sky picture. I can feel the warm sun and gentle breezes.

    THe tank is looking very nice--and, did you remember to pee? Drink LOTS of water the night before, and definitely pee....

    I'll 2nd what Amy said, and if you start really getting desperate, toss in a diuretic or two!

    I recommend finding dye to match those greens and spinning up those colors to cheer you up.

    Try cranberry juice (the not sweetened kind from Trader Joe's that you dilute 7:1) and drink lots of that this week.
