Well good morning and a long time no talk. I don't know why I have been away so long, but I have got a lot to catch you up on.

On the Weight Loss Front I rejoined Curves today and had a great workout. I quit about a year ago because I had no time to go. I don't know why I think I have time now, but I guess I am just going to rearrange my priorities. I have got to make big changes and this is the first. I am meeting with a nutritionist on Tuesday, at the advice of my new doctor who I love. I am not sure what the nutritionist is going to tell me. I am sure that I could pass with flying colors what ever kind of board test they have to take to practice, but I just don't do what I know. Maybe that is what she will get me to do is do it. If I don't get my act together I am going to have to have Gastric surgery and I do not want that. Send good vibes so that I can make things start happening.
Weight Loss Find Chick Filet's Char grilled chicken and fruit salad. This salad has grilled chicken on lettuce, a little cheese, grapes, apples, mandarin oranges, strawberries, carrots, and red cabbage. It is so colorful and very tasty. If you have access, try one this week and let me know what you think.

On the Fiber Arts Front I have so many things on the hooks and needles right now that I don't even know where to start. My main push is a Modern Baby Blanket from the first Mason/Dixon book (it can also be found free here )and the Spiral Shawl from Vogue's On the Go Crochet Shawl book. (I will include them in the Amazon picks on the right side of the blog.) I am doing the MBB in Knit Picks Swish DK in the following four colors:

Swish is a superwash merino and can be found at If you have never ordered from Knit Picks you don't know what you are missing. They make the best knitting needles ever. They are wood and called Harmony and are both beautiful and very, very nice to knit with. I am making the Shawl out of Aracunia Ranco Multi in a blue, gray, brown, copper, cream colorway that my dear husband gave me for Christmas. He even went to my LYS and picked it out and purchased it all by himself. Of course earlier, when he was with me one time, I pointed to a wall and said that I would love pretty much any and everything on it. So he knew where the good stuff was.

I am sure that I have tons more to share, but I don't want the post to be too long. Please leave comments and let me know what you are up to.
