and one pound lost!!!! Not a significant amount, but I am not complaining. I guess having the Momma of all colds depleted my appetite and coughing up a lung can be considered aerobic exercise.
I was pleasantly surprised when my favorite herb lady at the Farmer's Market asked me if I was losing weight and my sweet student Rachel said she could tell I was losing weight because my face looked thinner. Well, that isn't exactly where I carry my weight, but all kind comments are appreciated.
What else is making me happy this week? I just finished my "How Charming" quilt top using Mary Englebreit's new Basket's and Flowers fabrics. It was SEW much fun to make and brought a cheery smile to my face.
Speaking of smiling.....how is this for making my day???? My daughter ( and newest quilting companion) was sharing with me how much she is looking forward to summer when she and I can quilt, quilt and quilt some more. Now that kind of joy can't be beat.
So asking Sharon's forgiveness for this late post and after searching for some diet salads, I came up with this. Not really a salad, but I love a good salsa. Guess you could throw it on top of a stack of lettuce!!!! Happy week everyone and keep up the good work. One more pound down, don't even ask me how many more to go!!!!
