mmmm 70 calories a serving, these taste just like these. Yummy! Oh and I haven’t been up to much, taking the gramps to the doctor’s, interested in any cute grandpa stories?
Yesterday a friend of our families came over with such a delightful surprise. She had emailed me to ask if I wanted some old patterns of her mother’s. Of course, I said! I ran into her at a shop a few days later and she told me, "don’t worry I won’t bring all the old needles and things." To which I practically gasped and said, "oh no, I’ll take anything." So I got two big boxes of vintage knitting pattern books and magazines:
Well all of that is a lot more fun than my other current project. When I got back from Hawaii I knew I had over eaten terribly over there. Wearing a loose fitting cover up over a bikini doesn’t bode well for keeping portions in check. And since everyone else drank (I’m not a big alchole fan) I probably had a dozen syrupy drinks, like Shirley temples. So anyway I got home and weighed myself for the first time in a while. Oh my god almost fell off the scale, I had gained 20 pounds since graduating college! Ack! Now I don’t put much stock just in weight, you can eat terrible things and weigh not much. In college I was on the crew team, a coxswain so I usually weighed between 112 and 115. But my diet was almost entirely candy and diet coke (no joke). I gained weight right away after graduation, since I wasn’t biking to class, walking across the campus, or on the boat. But I have been a terrible eater lately and I can tell the metabolism of my 27 year old self is not as good as that of my younger self. So it’s back to something I’ve done before:

Bj and I have just gotten back from Hawaii! It was the ultimate in a total relaxation vacation. We did as close to nothing as possible. I did mean to do a post before I left, but I’m the best at last minuet packing, which I did as horribly as usual. Long sleeved shirts and jeans for the beach? Ugh what was a I thinking. We went to Hawaii with these jokers:
Well I’m back now, going to get back on my crafting, after all the difference of 50 degrees or so warrants cozying back up with yarn!
