Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms and thanks for all you do DAILY!!
Because my son recently got married I virtually saw all my kids recently… so if I don’t hear from them today specifically… I won’t be sad … I am a blessed mama of 4 beautiful grown kids who each have their own ideas about life 😀 THIS pic I asked for and got during that event! THIS makes me happy!
This week has been a great week for focus on different things since we have been home! Low carb eating and stitching and adding curb appeal to our front yard! Busy , Busy , Busy!
Since May 1 I have not had a piece of bread, processed foods with hidden bread, potatoes, starchy veggies, muffins.. I did have a high fiber tortilla a couple times in the first few days of this new way of eating we are trying out…. I am hoping to take some weight off before I see the knee specialist end of the month…. if I can I think they will agree to do my knee repairs soon. Last night I made eggplant lasagna from THIS YouTube video … it was delicious with my honey’s spaghetti sauce as the meat sauce 🙂
We are still stumbling along collecting new groceries and herbs and other properties to eat to keep us satisfied with healthy choices. Do you eat keto or low carb? Do you have any tips for us as we admit to and appreciate this way of eating??!! Please leave your thoughts in the comments below… I will be answering each personally & privately!
This week I have been enjoying Moon River glittery grey color on my nails….
I took these beauty shots of our home on Monday…
Then my honey decided it was time to add some pizzazz to the front of our home. So he is installing shrubs … cleaning out the plant beds that held overgrown shrubs he painstakingly removed and discarded….
We plan to pick up some more mulch to add to our variety of shrubs, lilies, hostas, and a yellow rose I wanted for the yard and for mother’s day… it may not do much this year but next year I can have yellow roses anytime! I do miss fresh flowers in the house from our Topton days! lol
While my honey has been working outside I have been keeping things up inside and have been busy busy busy!
Above you can see I have really focused on the Colorful Whole Cloth Quilt I pulled out of the forgotten projects… I have it set up on my PVC frame my honey made me… as it was all pin basted and it is easiest to quilt it now with it 1/3 quilted or more from the center out.
I also picked up hand stitching a new project… it is a secret project at this point though so I will just give you a sneak peek…
Linking all this hand stitching fun to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching group of bloggers HERE <<<< Come see what everyone is stitching all over the world!
As I have been stitching and coming up with keto recipes and learning low carb healthy eating ideas on YouTube … I have also been listening to books on Audible and finding fun songs… HERE is a link to a funny Bruno Mars song called the Lazy Song… makes you wanna dance to the beat.
All of the links in this post should open a new window so you don’t lose your place 🙂
Keep my epileptic seizures in your thoughts… my last one was a couple weeks ago (just a small one but one just the same) followed by increased medication to stop them and I haven’t had one noticed since then… I hope to be back to life as usual soon again….
Thanks for visiting!
