My Craft Room

Sweet Dizzy boy has made himself comfy on the couch. He must know mama is going to be in here for a while.

new material for a baby quilt

Fresh Start

So I went to the doctor for a check up yesterday. It had been over a year since my last appt. I needed to go to get a refill on my anxiety meds. But I had been dreading this appt for so long because I knew I had gained over 20 pounds since my last time there. So my very sweet, skinny Dr. Shane Mills walks in and asks how I'm doing I said, "ok, but I have gained over 20 pounds" he says very politely, "I see that on your chart". So he asks me how my anxiety meds are still working for me and if I would be interested in trying a prescription diet pill. During most of my life I have hated taking any kinds of meds ever. But since being on anti-anxiety meds I have really packed the pounds on and energy level is shot! So I tell him yes I would like to try them. Today is my first day on the new "skinny pill", took skinny pill and "happy pill" as I like to call them. My plans are to eat smaller portions, try to make smarter choices, lots of water and walk for at least 30 min 5 days a week. Wish me luck.

Started out my friday driving into Austin, like every Friday. I volunteer at my church's food pantry, Trinity United Methodist. We served 24 families today, fresh potatoes, onions, cherries, mixed breads, eggs and bell peppers all thanks to Whole Food Market. Also had a great selection from the wonderful Starbucks, for the great day old pastries they donate as well. Then went to McAllister's for lunch at Northcross with my volunteer/friend Zada and met my daughter as well. Then made a trip back to the Domain where Abby "needed" a new phone cover from the Apple Store. Came home watered my yard, cleaned house all that no so fun stuff. Now the fun part working on my quilt, putting the binding on today. Getting closer to being done!

Abby and I had a great day, running around shopping eating chili burgers and chocolate cream pie at the Frisco. Later in the day I worked on a quilt that I started months back. Finished the quilt top then put it away. Now I have bought a beautiful bright yellow fabric for the border and some new cotton batting. Spent this morning pinning my quilt top, batting, and back together and just started quilting. Already fed my outdoor critters, cleaned the kitchen, treadmill so no excuses to not finish this quilt today.

What a great day today was! Abby and I had my old childhood friend Rhonda and her daughter Sharon over for the day. Went to Chili's for lunch, swam in the pool, talked old memories, walked the property and just enjoyed each others company. Never got any rain, today or yesterday and none in the near future. Caught a little bit of the Michael Jackson funeral on tv, we will really miss him. PYT was my favorite of all of his music, will never forget the premiere of Thriller on MTV.

Hello, So this is my first blog. It is a beautiful Monday morning, cloudy and a good chance of rain, temp near only 95 today. We had a great 4th of july weekend. My husband, daughter and I saw "The Proposal" very funny, light hearted movie on Friday. Saturday we bar b qued burgers, hot dogs and bratwurst. Had potato salad my mom made, my sis brought a banana cream pie which is gone now and my fav choc chip cookies. My brother and sis in law aka Mother, came and stayed all day as we looked at pics on my computer all 21 thousand, seriously. Matt and Grandpa came to, we played keep away in the pool, had a blast!
