I can’t believe that it’s the 17th already! I feel like I blinked and suddenly it’s two weeks later, even my daughter was saying today that it felt like we were ringing in the new year not long ago. As I began this post I looked back to see my last post and see that it was published at the end of February! I really didn’t think that it had been that long since I had last met with you here (how can that be? It doesn’t feel that long :D), so this post is a bit of a March catch-up.
My St. Pat’s plans had to be put aside this year as my youngest daughter and I have spent the whole day doing a photo shoot for my husband (I had a photography business before we started homeschooling) – he runs a hotel and needs fresh room pictures for his website. I am pleased with how it all worked out, we got some great shots and this weekend I’ll do some editing before I pass them on.
With spring around the corner (NEXT WEEK! Eeeeeeeeep – so happy!) I have been popping a few spring touches around my home. A little flower garland along the mantel along with a sweet little tin blue bird – both gifts from sweet friends.
And on top of the mantle, I have a few sprigs of Forsythia which just screams spring to me. I don’t have any Forsythia in my garden (I used to have in our previous home) so I have to hunt around a bit for it. I found a lovely Forsythia bush near our church and cut a few sprigs on Sunday, cutting my thumb in the process – ouch!
How cute is that face!? Just had to slip this piccy in – has nothing to do with the rest of my news LOL.
So I joined Slimming World at the end of February and have already lost 4 kg! That’s about 8 lbs – best of all, I have not felt like I’m on a diet at all. It’s all food optimising and I haven’t felt hungry or deprived once. I can see why this way of healthy eating gets such great reviews. I’m loving trying out the recipes, it’s amazing to learn new low-fat ways of making old family favourites, and it tastes just as good if not better!
Earlier this month I dyed up a whole lot of yarn inspired by the colours of spring – and it was a hit! I’m super excited about dying up some more of this colourway but it has been a frustrating wait as my yarn blanks supplier has been out of stock. I’m hoping that – all going well – I’ll have my yarn order by the end of next week, then next weekend I’ll be dying yarn all weekend 🙂
Well my friends, that’s a very quick round-up of March so far – still a few more things to share but I need to finish off dinner before choir practice so I will love and leave you for today and be back very soon.
Blessings to you all and have a wonderful weekend.
