I like days where things get accomplished. Since my allergies are being tame today, I spent more time in the pool this morning. That always enervates me. Later, even small things like planning menus or grocery shopping made me feel good.
Menus: Giada’s Pasta Primavera will do very well if I cut back on the bow ties and oil just a bit on Wednesday. Today I will stir up Lady Bird Johnson’s Pedernales River Chili perhaps with a pinch of minced onion and a grate or two of cheese on top. Cook for four and eat twice…small portions. I’ve become terribly lazy when I’m in the kitchen.
I go to the Diabetic.org site and follow their suggestions, believe it or not.
Later, I grabbed a book to read over lunch then spread Harriet’s Star Quilt out for some inspiration. Finally some concrete ideas began to stir. 99 inches by 89 inches…..with a star border top and bottom….solid borders all around that. Fabrics and quilting indicating fields in graduating colors…dark at the bottom. Lots of crows. After making a pattern for the star block that will fit my 99 inches, I’m feeling pretty good.
