STILL not feeling well, but it is Weigh in Wednesday!!

Today being a Wednesday I went to my Weight Watcher's meeting this morning @ 9AM. I had a small gain but was kind of expecting it. So this weeks GAIN is .2 pounds so now my grand total is 44.8 pounds. I have been really struggling this past few weeks. I seem to want to snack all the time. With not feeling well I have not been eating the right things or the right times, but just mainly snacking.

I went to Joann's after my meeting this morning, they are having a real good sale and that seemed to lift my spirits, just seeing all that pretty fabric and all. Got some real cool stuff

2~ crib sized 80/20 cotton batting

21~ Fat Quarters in all kinds of colors

6~ spools of cotton Gutermann thread,Black, Blue, Red, White and 2 off white (I love this thread)

A New Rotary cutter by Fiskars

2 Yards of Khaki colored Kona Cotton

5 yards of fusible interfacing

1 small quilt border template

and a remnant of white fabric with blue and red stars on it.

Here is what it all looks like~

Yesterday I was very excited to see the UPS truck pull up at our home, I was waiting for some books I had ordered to arrive. I ordered 2 books by Martha Peace~

I have heard very good things about both books. I have already started reading the "Becoming a Titus 2 Woman" and I am doing the Bible study part with a friend. The other book is called "Attitueds of a Transformed heart" which is centered around the verse Romans 12:2

while I was out the other day I just had to take a picture of this street sign ~You have to click on the picture to actually read the signs~

is this confusing or what??? I know what street is what but if I wasn't from here I would have no idea what they even mean. This intersection has 4 streets that meet but when they meet they change names!!! So where it says Briggsmore Ave. and Orangeburg Ave. they look like they go the same direction but in reality they run opposite...

I have lots more to write about and more pictures to share especially the backyard update but I am just still not feeling too well. I haven't been on the computer very much at all the last week. I am hoping that by next Monday I will be back in full force and get you all caught up with what I have been up to.



  1. Okay 0.2 pounds isn't even enough for the weigh in person to have talked about. :o) Congrats! on your weight loss and keep reaching for your goal! Your shopping trip was the best part of the day, huh? You have some mightly pretty goodies there. I have wanted to read the Titus 2 book, too. Let me know if you like it!

  2. My prayers are with you dear friend, I pray that God mounts you up and he touches and heals your body, in Jesus name I pray. I am going to see if I can order those books they look really interesting. I pray that you have a great rest of the week. Still strong by dear sister in Christ

  3. Not a bad gain at all considering you have been ill.
    What a haul at Joann's...that is enough to make you feel better. I love Gutermann thread too. I use their quilting thread and also the poly for my applique.
    The other Martha book looks good too.

  4. Hello Joann, I hope you feel better soon. Your trip to JoAnn's looks alot like mine did. LOL I love their sales. Please let us know what you think about the Martha Peace books. Have a good evening. Winona

  5. Praying for you to be well and quickly. Looking forward to more updates.
