I'm feeling a bit dejected about my dreams of making plum jam this summer.
Our trees have very little fruit on them. Not sure if they were pruned too harshly, or the winter winds stopped the flowers getting pollinated?
One tree has maybe 5 plums on it!
ABOVE: I was looking at the plant in front of the tall Atlantis pot, trying to think what it was?
Then it came to me... it was a bloody weed!
Stew came along and must have agreed, cos he pulled it out of the garden. Then he carried on replacing the sand with concrete between the new pavers.
Today I'm going into Hamilton for my Patchwork group at Donna's Quilt Studio. I'm going to continue doing the hand stitching on Keera's quilt, I should have it finished by the end of the day.
I can't wait to see it on her bed all finished.
Right, that's all for now.
Stupid weather! It's been like an early summer for weeks now, but today? OMG it's freezing!
I've put long tights and socks/sneakers back on.
Off to patchwork soon... made Brylee get out of bed early. I've given her a small list of jobs to do, just two things. I wonder if they will be done by the time I get home?
Miracles do happen right?
Now that I've sat down, all my energy has gone.
Weight watchers last night, I gained 3 kilos over the past 2 months. It could have been worse.
I'm going to try a different strategy, small and often. I've never actually done that before. It's worth a go.
One of my biggest problems is over eating, portion sizes and bad choices. So, I shall work on one 'problem' at a time. Portion sizes. If I go 'small and often' I won't get to the point of being starving, and then over eat.
STARTING TODAY. Oh and I suppose a small biscuit every couple of hours isn't going to cut it eh? lol I shall be investing in some nice snacks, fruit, nuts and so on.
Any suggestions happily accepted.
ALMOST finished Keera's quilt! I've got half a side left to stitch down. It will be on her bed tonight.
And I found some of the purple fabric (in Keera's quilt), at Donna's Quilt Studio, so I will be making her a pillow case in purple now. Yaaa.
Lunch time. I'm going to have a sandwich I think.
Lunch was a sandwich, and nothing else.
The afternoon became very hot and ikky... to the point where I felt quite ill. Heat and I do not mix.
Dinner was pasta with chicken and bacon, I had a very MODEST amount. And it was enough.
I am going to hit 'repeat' for tomorrow! I feel much better with less in the belly.
Time to sign off for today... last thing... I got the quilt finished. It's going on Miss Muppet's bed tomorrow.
