Handiwork, Help with Menus, and a Horrible Diet Week
I hope you all had a great weekend. We had lots of funny visiting with family. Going to the reunion, with tables full of good food, didn't help my diet cause. Although, I only ate one small piece of pound cake and tried to watch what I ate. Apparently that pound cake meant I added a pound and I watched what I ate show up on the scale. For all my work last week, I lost a whopping eight-tenths of one pound. But I shall not give up. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming as the blue fish says.
I thought I'd show y'all my little apron I made yesterday. My little one and I were at home with sore throats and I found the material for it while digging through some of my craft things. I figured it was the right time. It's just one of those simple ones that you buy and just cut out. I got it in a pile of craft stuff at a yard sale. My younger son came in from outside and I showed it to him. Here's our conversation--
Me: "Hey bud, want to see what I made?"
Ry: "What's it for?"
Me: "It'll be my Thanksgiving apron."
Ry: "What! You can't wear that for Thanksgiving!"
Me: "Why not? What's wrong with it?"
Ry: "You might spill food on it. You can't mess up a work of art!"
Y'all, the boy was seriously concerned, and he called it 'a work of art'. I can promise that it's not, but it sure was sweet to hear.
Here's what I have planned for supper this week. I promise not to wear my special apron, lest I soil it. =)
