Friday Quote Day on Monday

A human being has a natural desire
to have more of a good thing than he needs.
~ Mark Twain

Ain't that the truth?

I hope you ended your weekend feeling as though you'd had more of a good thing than you need; I sure did! I'm still tired from all the fun we had, which included a parade, a picnic, kite-flying and lots o' family time.

Amazingly, I've lost another half a pound, bringing the grand total for the year to … drumroll, please …


I know, not a big deal, laughable, really, but my husband can testify to the consistency of my calorie deficit. I'll take every half-pound loss I can get. I'm not suffering or starving, mind you, but I'm also not overindulging. Or even indulging on a regular basis. (I guess if you indulged on a regular basis, it wouldn't be indulging, would it?)

The thing about this long, slow loss pattern is that while I might bounce up or down a pound or two, I've managed to continue losing – and maintaining the loss – for seven months. I should be at goal about the time I qualify for Social Security. Heh.

I have just two more rounds on my knitting project, then the felting/fulling/whatever you prefer calling it, then I'll post the before-and-after photos. It took just a couple nights to knit. I have another one in mind and then I think I'll knit half a dozen and put them in the shop where I sell my felted tote bags. Or maybe I'll even open an etsy shop.

'Cause you can't get too much of a good thing.

That is SO not laughable. I think my yearly total is ZERO, so 8.5 looks pretty good.

Go ahead and do an Etsy, the cost is minimal. Very easy to try it and see how it works out.
