Well, now I've done it. Gone and created a blog. Like so many others in the world I expect someone to actually read this and gain something from it. Even if it's only a bit of insight or inspiration or a chuckle for the day. I'll be chatting about things I know -- family, hobbies, work, wine, hobbies - did I say that already?! It's not as though I needed to add one more thing to my plate. I lead a plenty busy life already but I'm hoping this blog will keep me on task.
Let's see.....there are 17 weeks left until my daughter gets married - yikes! I've been working on reducing my weight since last year and have managed to lose 27 pounds. No fancy diets or pills -- just strong will and applying what most of us already know -- calories in/calories out. I joined a gym last April and that has made all the difference. I jot down my measurements on the first of each month so tomorrow will be another chance to track my progress.
I bought a dress for the wedding but it needs a wrap or shawl of some sort. Since the dress is an eggplant color I'm thinking of keeping the item I'll be knitting in that color family. Here's a picture of the dress, hanging so nicely on the back of my bathroom door :
Amazingly enough it's a petite and may not need to be shortened (hmm, did I forget to mention I'm 4'10"!). This is highly unusual for me. It was on the clearance rack at Macy's -- what a stroke of luck!! However, I have NO intention of buying all of the foundation pieces the saleslady recommended. More time in the gym should suffice, although I'll still need a strapless bra. My first one believe it or not. How did I ever get to be this old and never need one?
Well, this is a pretty good start. More tomorrow.....
