The craft fair got cancelled. Only 3 people signed up. We're trying again in June. It will give me more time to make bags. Right now I am finishing a pretty one that was a wreath of crocheted roses appliqued on it.
Plans for today: many chores, and maybe go see 'The Host'. I enjoyed the book and am interested to see how they translated it to the screen. Honey is going biking.
Oh! I calculated my BMI, and I am no longer obese, only over-weight. According to the government, which I don't know if I should take as an authority, but since it is no longer calling me obese, I WILL!
I am finding the loose jeans more annoying than encouraging. Maybe I should switch to leggings and tunics for the duration. It would be simpler. Oh, and tank tops, of course, can't forget the tank tops!
And...back to the topic at hand...I am lucky to be Honey's ideal wife, since I think no one else would put up with me. This in spite of the fact that he told me early in our dating history that he usually prefers brunettes(I am blond). However, my hair has darkened with age, so now all his fantasies are satisfied.
Funny to me that men would care what color hair a woman has. Early in our history DH asked me how long I planned to be a red head. (I was a hairdresser at the time so it was a fair question as my hair - before I met him - had literally been every "natural" shade under the sun, we didn't do the psychedelic colors at the time). I never figured out if he wanted me to keep it or to change it. I am still a red-head.

665 calories worth of bratwurst, sauerkraut, chocolate macadamias(who ever introduced me to these...oh, I know...Winencandy!), liverwurst, and peanut butter. Thanks to my height, that is still technically a Down Day amount of calories, though not a stellar one.
Water: 10 glasses
Today I am going to try for my more normal 420 limit. I found wild salmon fillets at Aldi, portioned at 4oz each for 100K and 20g protein. Seems like a great Down Day meal.
And, I ate on my Up Day. Splendidly.
Up at 5:30(in spite of it being Sunday!)

Honey has received an offer from one of his interviews! He dropped off all the paperwork today, and should start in two weeks. Y'all know how happy I am about this. It is contract-to-hire, so hopefully, by the end of the year, he will have a permanent position!
well considering the good news on hubby's job --- i'd say grab him by the hand - open the bedroom door - and close it behind you!

I had a flat tire this morning, discovered as I was taking Middlest and Friend to school. That's dealt with, but it is now 10:00 and I am not deep into my morning routine. I did get a 40" walk out of it, but the laundry, dishes, sweeping, etc, are all still waiting on me.
Luckily, they are good waiters.
Up at 5:30
12:15 4oz salmon
6:15 medium spinach salad with
1 bacon, 1 hard egg, vinegar
Water: 9 glasses
Bed at 9:00 (well, fell asleep on the sofa at some point before then )
It is going to get hot today, so I'm airing out the house while I can. There will be NO turning on of the air conditioner when it is expected to get cold again in two days!
Honey is NOT impressed that his weight is staying steady, but I think his waist is looking smaller. I hope he gets a good dip downward next, to keep him smiling.
