Instead of apologizing for not being a regular poster, I’m just going to dive back in. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
~ I spent the day with a friend this past week and had a great time. She drove us to a couple of beaches, we walked and took pictures. It was very windy but we ate sandwiches and watched the waves.
This would be a great place to go when it is a little warmer. I am planning on spending a weekend day here at least a few times this summer!
I lightened this picture because I used my iphone to take the pictures. This was one of many houses along the beach, a few had major damage due to the storms we’ve had during the past few weeks.
It was very windy, so we sat higher up on the rocks and ate lunch.
~ I don’t know how I found them, but I found a couple of plus size bloggers Nadia and Gabi. I fail at fashion most of the time so seeing their blogs made me interested in what I wear all over again. I default to jeans and boots since living here, which is not good. Everyone here is very fashionable. Few wear jeans, no one wears sneakers, and all of the women wear makeup daily. I don’t see fashion as a way to make myself feel good about who I am, I am confident regardless of wearing sweats or a dress. But I want to wear different things. I have found a few new to me stores to shop at thanks to those blogs and look forward to a few purchases!
~ Anne over at Play Crafts started a Quilt Design a Day group on facebook, based on the design seeds picture a day. I really love a few of the designs shared so far and this week I plan on sitting down with Electric Quilt to give myself a review about how to use it. I have been sewing all the time, every day actually, and I easily have a dozen (I haven’t counted) quilt tops finished. I have only completely finished a baby quilt (and that’s using a top I finished last summer) that I am giving to a friend for her new baby. I would love to design and I think a quick design a day is the way to do it.
~ I don’t know why I can’t find it, but I can’t find baking soda in the store here. I am going to a different store today to look around, otherwise I may need to have my Mom send me some. We wanted to make banana bread but realized we didn’t have any soda. I also want to do the ‘no poo’ thing. My hair is so long now (I’ll do a picture this week) but it feels weighed down and thin. I know going no poo will help so I am looking forward to trying this out, even if I am not looking forward to the week and a half of adjustment everyone says it takes. Anyone out there gone this route? How do you feel about it?
