Here and now | August

I’m just making it in time to join in with Sarah for August’s Here and Now…….

Loving these flowers – bought two bunches, one for the lounge and one for the family room and they cheer up a grey dull day (cleaned up the mantle piece too and changed it around)

I really need to get to grips with these scraps; cut them into size and box them…….. but the pile’s too big now (whiney voice!)

I’ve missed something to do in the evenings – quilting and hand piecing isn’t doing it for me at the moment – so started on the “Spice of Life” crochet……and Lovin’ It!!

Billy and I have had great fun with this quilt…..will be showing more soon

Loving // Billy, my Bernina – we’re making good things together!

Eating // Still on my carb-free diet and hot flushes are subsiding

Drinking // Hot (soy) milky drinks

Feeling // Mixed feelings about Winter; looking forward to some warmer days, but haven’t done half the things I wanted to over Winter.

Making // Can’t leave the “Spice of Life” crocheting alone!

Thinking // About last week’s trip with Mum and how much fun we had.

Dreaming // No dreams – after months of poor sleep I’m finally sleeping soundly (hope I haven’t just jinxed myself!)

Check in on Sarah’s blog to see what everyone else has been doing.

  1. The sleeping soundly – that makes such a difference, doesn’t it! Maybe the crochet is helping…

    I smiled when you said you were whinny. Yesterday I told my granddaughter not to whine and she
    informed me that she wasn’t whining, just whimpering softly!

    I am enjoying a carb free diet also. It calms you so!

    Gorgeous flowers, Meredithe! And I love that you’ve named your sewing machine…everything is named around here, even the dishwasher and DVD player 😉

    I love winter, but I find myself thinking about warmer days at the same time as knowning once it gets too warm, I’ll want winter back, haha!

    Thanks so much for joining in again,
    Sarah x

    I am doing the KETO diet (similar to Atkins but way more good fat and less protein. I just read last night that soy is not good for you. I wish I could remember the source. I think it was Dr. Jonny Bowden. Might be doing a bit of research. If you like avocados, they are amazingly good for you and are very filling. Lots to learn about foods. Good luck with your diet!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
