DREARY WEATHER

Well this week was my first week back at work after the New Year and I was slammed like usual. So many deadlines and so little time. One of my friends at work makes jewelry and we had walked to Barnes and Noble on Friday at lunch. She was looking jewelry magazines and came across this bracelet.

Isn't it cute. Of course I had to have it so I ordered a kit for her to make it for me. I figured it just wouldn't be for Valentine's Day I could wear it with other things also. Not much is new here at all. Did a little sewing today but not much. I am working on getting caught up on my BOM's and will start working on my challenge quilt again some time next week.

The diet went well this week so far. I have been really concentrating on my portions and what I am sticking in my mouth. It seems like I am starving all the time though. I don't think I have been eating enough protein so I am going to adjust some things next week. Tomorrow I will start working on cleaning the basement to make room so there will be room when we go buy the treadmill. I am hoping to be able to make a trip to Sears by next week sometime. I don't think I am going to have a lot of spare time to start exercising next week but it is supposed to be nicer and I think I wmight just take a little walk once I get home and before I start eating dinner.

Well have a great Sunday gals. Will check in later.

I really like that bracelet. Anything with hearts just call to me. I have been trying to get back on track with my eating. Chocolate was my downfall over the holidays. Your challenge quilt is wonderful....great colors.

That is an adorable bracelet! I would wear that all throughout the year. Of course I am a charm bracelet junkie and wear mine when ever I get a chance.

Congrats on watching what you eat. That has really been the key for me. One of my friends is writing down every thing she eats for a week and said it has really made her think twice when she goes to grab something.

Are you telling me you are talking a week off from working on your challenge quilt? Hah, I might get finished by the time you do after all, lol. Cute bracelet. Proud of your watching what you eat. I wish you lots of luck with your diet.

I forgot, sorry the Steelers lost. They are just like OU, they beat themselves. Tell Joe there is always next year, lol.
