OK, enough of that.
I've been making myself a smoothie every morning lately...a splash of OJ, some pineapple, a banana, Greek yogurt, and a couple of frozen berries to make it cold. It's pretty much what I was having for breakfast anyway, but now I put it in a blender and drink it. For some odd reason, it seems healthier that way.
I go through wierd ruts with my eating habits. There are weeks on end during which I eat nothing but Egg Beaters and ramen noodles, and then it's all Taco Bell all the time. For the most part, I think I'm pretty good, and I know that having a whacky appetite is all part of the Crohn's/kidney thing, but sheesh...why can't I just be normal?
With the warmer weather, though, I am determined to make some good stuff and stock the fridge a bit, so I am Pinteresting my little heart out. So far I've found a lot of great recipes for...you guessed it...smoothies, sandwiches, and salads!
I worked on the border and mid-section of Long Spring Panel last night. I'm going to have to move the canvas on the stretcher bars today, and I'm still working out how to secure the stitched part of the canvas. The piece is 22 inches long and 11 inches wide, but I didn't have that combination in either skinny or fat stretcher bars. So I'm using 17's and have rolled the excess at the top. When I move the canvas down, the area that I need to tack will be right in the middle of some stitching, so I'm fretting a bit as to how I'm going to do that. I'm thinking that I will lay a strip of felt over the stitching to protect it....
Stewey is still snoozing away in the big girl sleigh bed. I think he has a little cold, since his nose looks a little runny and he seems a little more sleepy than usual. The fact that it's going to rain all day probably isn't helping matters...who would want to be up and about when there's a fresh batch of library books on the nightstand and all the tea and toast you could want on your little bed tray?
I think that's about it for a Futzingday report. After a few chores and telephone calls, I think I might join Little Mr. Fussypants for some cozytime reading!
Hope your day is exactly as you wish it to be!
