Look out! It's a bunny!

All together now: “Awww.”

So three bunnies have been sent to the triplets and one to my younger granddaughter and all that’s left to do is fix Easter dinner on Sunday.

I haven’t been tempted by a single Cadbury creme egg, Reece’s peanut-butter egg or marshmallow Peep. (The only thing Peeps are good for is exploding in the microwave anyway. Eating them? Gross!)

I’ve taken three long walks since you and I last got together and the result is a half-pound loss. A new number! Not new, really, I’ve been here before, but not in a long, long time. And this number has been there for three straight days, so I think it’s legit.

In addition to a five-miler yesterday, I also recovered the seat of a bench and refinished the curio cabinet. It looks wonderful – much, much better than I ever expected. I’m kind of afraid to sand anything off the edges to make it look shabby and old. So right now I’m not doing that. I’ll have to refinish a piece of scrap wood to practice on.

All that work yesterday meant I ate very little. I must find a way to keep busy for the 18 hours I’m not sleeping each day. It makes such a difference when you’re trying to create a calorie deficit. Heh.

How did you know what I was saying on my side of the monitor? I did say "Awwww!"

You did great this weekend! I'm pretty impressed! Have you tried using a micro-sander? I got one at Lowe's for $25 at one point. It might be a good way to distress the furniture.
