while the zig-zag pink labeled one holds my colorful zips.
I also made a little, everyday bag from old jeans.
Sandra of Sandra Sews little button eyes idea. Cute and they're covering the uneven stitching lines I made at the top of the pockets. That pen is supposed to look like a nose. No one else sees that but me, though.
We've also been trapping and releasing these guys in a lovely forest far, far away from our house
to my newly sided house. They are also gnawing on my lawn furniture, eighty dollar bird feeders, and anything else they can get their little teeth on. Fifteen down and still have four more out there hanging off my bird feeders this morning. I think I may have to stop feeding the birds to get rid of the problem. That's a bit sad. I do love watching the beasts. I liked the squirrels, too, before they started chewing all my stuff.
Did some fun stuff like hiking at this beautiful place in the Huyck Preserve at Berne, New York
Last, I started doing Nutrisystem this week! When the last ten pounds I needed to lose (for the last eight or nine years) turned into twenty, I HAD to try something different. Why I could lose well over fifty pounds on my own, but not this last bit is beyond me. I tried Weight Watchers, but didn't like all the time I had to spend counting and recording and just thinking about food. I think I need these two things: recognizing what an actual portion should be again and paying attention to the extra-eating triggers. I figured Nutrisystem would quickly work well for both those issues. It has already been an eye-opener on both counts. I lost a couple of pounds in the half a week I've been on the program. Good start! Wish me luck...
