I have been so busy since moving to TX and getting the pups. We have remodeled and adjusted to the climate change. I'm feeling so much better from the Lyme. I've been on a natural Lyme program and my pups have also played a big part in it. They are so cool, the joy in my life
I feel like I have my life back.

My diet is working slowly. I'm so anxious for it to warm up outside so I can get to work. I really need to be more physical.
I'm knitting a Tantric Puzzle Top with Plum Perfection Swazzle yarn.
It's a 100% superfine alpaca (from Peru) yarn. I love it.
I've also started a toe-up sock with prime alpaca fiber from columbia river gorge.
I think of socks as fun and practical.

The MUFAs diet is working good for me (lost another lb). I'm loving this dark chocolate. And olives - Oh yummy! This week I worked on Strategy #1 of the '7 Stress-Busting Strategies' - GET MORE SLEEP. Not getting enough sleep causes your body to store fat, slows your metabolism, and makes you eat more. Your body must have enough downtime to revitalize and replenish. The author urges: if you do nothing else on this list, put sleep at the top of the "Flat Belly Diet" to-do list.
We had some excitement on the freeway Saturday. On the way to a retirement seminar, someone intentionally tried to run us off the road. It was so scary I cried. Since having shingles the stress makes me hurt so much, so Sunday I was down too. At the seminar they talked about life, and death, and planning, and wills, and being prepared. Really makes you think.
This week I worked on organization and inventory of my yarn stash. I found an old challenging pattern I want to try again. It's a cool cable seed stitch top.

I did GOOD on my nutrition & being physical but not logging it. Hubby and I are both doing a "healthy heart diet". He has a tired heart and I have the lyme in my heart, which is painful sometimes. I lost 5 lbs already without really trying. I just got the book, it explains how "A flat belly is about food & attitude. Period". you eat MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids, like oils, chocolate, avocados, olives or nuts at every meal). I'm anxious to read about the attitude part.
It was a good week. I mostly worked on my fiber arts. I went to an organic yarn shop uptown village and could not resist this beautiful wisteria purple silk wool. I'm going to try the "two-at-a-time" sock pattern. I finished a suede fringe shawl last night. It turned out real nice.

This week was good in it's own way. I was still too bummed with my remodel job to get back at it, SO I did get to some spring cleaning and paperwork.
Saturday we went to a safety seminar at hubby's union, getting some medical tests done (periphial artery disease, sugar, cholesterol, heart, etc). There were 2 lectures, on diabetes and heart attacks, It was very interesting, especially the info on the heart and heart attacks. The typical heart attack lasting 5 days and how if you take 4-6 baby aspirin & and get medical attention ASAP you can avoid damage to the heart.
Sunday I was honored to meet one of my daughters friends.
