Ten Things Tuesday Day 584

tenthingsIf you remember, last week I didn’t make a list of ten things to do. I was tired and cranky and couldn’t be bothered to do it. This week I will make a list though. It will be a good list. An amazing list. Okay, well, it’ll be a list anyway. Let’s get started! Ten things Tuesday!

  1. Read 50 pages in The Trouble With Islam Today.
  2. Vacuum the house twice.
  3. Brush the dogs twice.
  4. Start a new sewing project.
  5. Reach a feedback score on eBay of 270.
  6. Lose 1.5 pounds.
  7. Go to my mom’s and pick up my old sewing projects & shoes.
  8. Try a new recipe.
  9. Have 30 Points+ left over at the end of the week.
  10. Don’t bid on anything else on eBay!

My food has been all over the place this week. I have yet to have an on-track day I some time, and I imagine I can see my belly getting fatter. :blink: I have to get myself back on track! I was right on track today until Mattie suggested ice cream and wine, and of course I said yes to both. The good thing is the ice cream was a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich so its portion-controlled. No filling a bowl to overflowing and going to town. :devil:

B5350-front-finishI didn’t do much today except spend some time in my craft room throughout the day working on saving the horrible skirt (that I saved from what was going to be an even more horrible dress four years ago) and actually making a wearable dress out of it. You can see it here (front and back) along with more details about how it was made and what I changed on it. I ended with a 70’s feeling dress at the end and I rather like it.

I gave the dogs a quick brushing too, and confirmed that most of the hair laying all over our house is Sashi’s and not Lucy’s. I swear she did not shed like this the last two years at all and now she’s shedding like crazy. Its insane how much hair I have gotten off of her lately.

We also got a great box today from Abundant Harvest Organics with lots of peaches and a few nectarines I think, as well as broccoli, summer squash, a huge tomato and an onion, and some other stuff. We’re still getting potatoes too- those never stop coming. :pouty:

I also watched the season finale of New Girl, the latest episode of Mad Men, and was going to get caught up on Game of Thrones today but I’ll save that for tomorrow when Mattie will be gone pretty much all day and night.

I don’t have much else to say today, so here’s today’s food diary. I’m actually still drinking my wine as I type this.
