Sewing Day

Yesterday i got in the mood to sew....why...i dont know...lol....so i went to WalMart and bought some yellow and white checked fabby....and made curtins for the kitchen....Then i decided that while i was in the sewing mood...i might as well make curtins for the living room as well...lol...I picked this pretty rose pattern fabby for the living room.
I think my new curtins turned out really nice....and look nice too...lol.
The next time i get in the sewing mood i need to make curtins for the bedroom....

Wishing everyone a Very Happy and safe New Year and weekend...

Hugs to all.

Some updates

First off...i have started a new stitching project...Magic Dragon by
Joan Elliott...I am stitching it on 14 count Gold Sparkle fabbie. I started it on Dec 21,2011....a thursday....i havent gotten much stitched yet,but off to a good start.










I have also been doing a lot of reading...i have read The Scarecrow,Echo Park, and The Last
Coyote by Michael Connelly.

Then i read Hour Game by David Baldacci.
Then The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark.
Next i read The Christmas Wife by Helen Norris....not a very good read.
Sharon let me borrow 2 of her books to read...Achesapeake Shores Christmas by Sherryl
Woods. And Driftwood Cottage by Sherryl Woods.

I have returned Sharon's books back to her...and gave her the other books of mine that i read.
And told her she can pass them around.

We had a green Christmas...and that was fine with me...
I have been walking everyday weather permitting....sometimes i get 1 mile in...other times
almost a mile walked.

I really enjoy living in town,where i can walk to the store,etc..about the only time i drive is on
fridays....

I am still on page 6 of my Cheetah SAL...i need to get it finished....lol

Update on me

Hello all my friends.Its been awhile that i updated my blog.The 2 months that we stayed with Tom and Sharon was great.Sharon got me into eating better.And back into walking.
I am now in our own place again.woohoo.Its on the 2nd floor..so i still have stairs to climb like at Sharon's.And i still eat better,woohoo,,lol...I still have my protein drinks for breakfast and i still eat salads and fresh fruits.
Now that i live in town,i walk almost everywhere. The other day i walked my first mile...wooohoooo...I love it.
I used to weight 235 pounds...i am now 212...woohoo.
I used to wear size large slacks...not anymore.
I finally had to get new slacks,a size medium...as large is just to baggy ....lol.
With shopping at the thrift store and clearance rack at Kmart,i was able to get a few new medium slacks.And
ALL of my "fat" slacks are now gone...lol.

Also a lot of the gals in the ESC group have shared a list of their favorite reads....so i logged into my local library and now i can check out the books on my laptop and read the ebooks...Thanks gals for all the help and support...

Hugs to all...

More New Home

Below are pics of my new home at moveing in time...We had a little scare
when we were moveing in.Joe was carrying up the double decker bird cage. Half way up the steps the bottom of the bottom cage fell off and the bird went with it.

I ran down the steps as fast as i could..and the bird came right to me...
thank goodness there was no cats or dogs around..i got my bird and took her into the house.

A large piece broke off the front of the bottom of the cage...so i had to glue
it back together....and thank goodness the bird did not get hurt..

Yesterday i walked to Weis super market and then another block to the welfare office....And this morning i walked to the welfare office again.

For they are not far from where i live...and i am keeping on the diet that Sharon and i started together.I am also keeping a log of the food i eat everyday too.

I am really proud of myself...lol

My New Home

Farmers Market today

I went to the farmers market this morning.The weatherman said it was to be a DRY morning....well he lied...About 9:30 i decided to pack up.Got everything in the van except for my tables and chair...
Then it came....big fat rain drops....then it just poured. I was soaked by the time i got the tables and chair in the van...and boy was i cold,as the temp was only in the 60s...I turned the heat on in the van on the drive home.Oh and i made $5.75 in sales.....lol
