My Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 65 – 72

Wow! It's been almost two months since I last posted my weight loss progress. Honestly, you all haven't missed much. As I expected, since passing the 100 pounds lost mark, my weight loss has slowed considerably, and it seems to fluctuate more now with stress, and hormones, but I'm still gradually heading towards my ultimate goal.

Ocean Waves Afghan

Way, way back in February, while I was on my crochet cruise my friend (and coworker), Brigitte, and her family, looked after Truffles for me. Now, this was a big deal, because although her family had cats in the past, they had never had a dog in the house and weren't sure what to expect. Add to that the fact that he has the Yorkie stubbornness against being completely house trained, and I wasn't sure how things would go. Happily, he did just fine, and minded his manners while I was gone.

I Finally Hung My Tea Shelf!

As some of you may know (if you were around at Christmas for the 24 days of tea posts that I did), I love tea. So much that my blog has tea in its name, even though my tea posts are fairly few and far between. About a year ago, a lady from near my old hometown posted a photo on her Facebook business page, Dragonfly Handmade, showing a shelf she had made for her daughter's David's Tea collection. Now, my collection of David's Tea looked to be about the same size, so I contacted her and commissioned a shelf.

Fantastic Bake Along – Maple Nut Scones

Hello everyone! I'm back for another Fantastic Bake Along post! I've really been missing blogging over the past month, but I have been so busy with work that when I have had down time, the last thing I wanted to do was turn on my computer and write. I hope things slow down a bit soon...at least to the point that I'm not working after hours, and on weekends to stay caught up. But that's enough of that, on to the real purpose for this post!
