Been putting off making the Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Creamy Cashew Lime Sauce (it's a recipe from Dr. Hyman's "Eat Fat, Get Thin"). Finally got my act together and cooked it for lunch today. It's AMAZINGLY good. Messy, the way I eat it, but ... Read more
I didn't use any of the diet plan recipes today, but stuck with foods allowed. I hope I kept the nutrient balance right, anyway. The food is real food, it's filling and enjoyable, so it should be maintainable. I admit to having to turn off so... Read more
Corn and Beans
Corn and beans - two foods not on my diet plan, yet. I managed to skip breakfast this morning (slept through it), and there's no way I'm going to be able to eat all my calories for the day. Still happy with the meals for today. Salsa Scramble... Read more
Salt Lake City
Day 3 of the diet plan. It was difficult to keep going, not go get the foods that I love to over-indulge in. I resisted. Silly really, it's only 3 weeks and I'm having difficulty at 1/7 the way through. Never mind, I'll just need to pull it t... Read more
Double X #4
Still not crazy about avocados - taste and texture are awful - but today's smoothie made me feel like throwing up slightly less than yesterday's. Disgusting image, I know. I'll either get used to it or will stop using this recipe. The Salmon ... Read more
Basket of Triangles
Started working my plan to reorganize my fabrics today. I also found more fabric - and the fabric mom sent me arrived. ... Read more
My mom's friend is clearing out her house - stuff she doesn't want to keep in her life. Good for her...and good for me, mostly. She keeps giving me fabric! ... Read more
I'm pretty sure I picked the wrong fabric for the dark on today's block (Thrifty). It blends a bit too well with the medium tone, but is also not being changed.

Slept late this morning, and now I'm tired again and want to go to bed early...this might be a problem. Didn't even get around to the yoga - maybe tomorrow.
Today's block is Sugar Bowl. The name lies, it's just another basket block! I'm ... Read more
Stiles and Paths
What a nice bike ride this morning! Finished that and got today's block, a quilt row, and more sewing done. Yippee! Looking forward to tomorrow's yoga. ... Read more
3 Weeks Later (or a Month)
Finally home and resettled after a fun visit with family. Got to see my best friend and her family, a lovely July 4 (well, it was on the 3rd) with family at the lake, and productive sewing adventures. I managed to make my block everyday, just c... Read more
Pleasant couple of days. I've gotten to enjoy swimming, have started quilting one quilt, and pin basted another. Tomorrow and Thursday I'll get to spend time with friends, and Friday will visit with family. Just have to find time to finish my... Read more
Ladies' Aid Album
I've got to get back to sleeping at night. The staying up until 3 and waking up at 10 or 11 is not a good thing. This week I'll work on that goal.
Yesterday's block - New England Block - was completed with dots and fantail fish. It was a... Read more
Peace and Plenty
What a productive sewing day. I completed my best friend's birthday present (well, the top to it), made a tissue box cozy, made today's block, and got within two borders of completing the top to a UFO. I'll post a picture of the bff's birthday... Read more
The Hen and Her Chicks
Finally got the top of the table runner done. I'm not a fan of applique, mostly because I'm not very good at it...because I don't practice...because I'm not good at it... It's a viscous cycle of inactivity. This runner is a simple pinwheel pat... Read more
