That's what it feels like here. According to the news, we have the worst air quality in the country right now. I believe it- this California native knows smog when she sees it. Yuck. It is the perpetual dilemma of winter here- no snow (no storms), and look at the ugly brown inversion, the Utah name for this stuff. If you want clean air, you better hope for successions of storms- which means dealing with all the other stuff that goes with snow. What a choice!!
You'd never know it from this blog, but I have been working on some art. I hope to have the last piece for the Interpret This! challenge done in a few days. I have been working on some hand embroidery- as long as my hands cooperate, I enjoy the slower pace. Can't show the whole piece, but here's a really close up look at what I've been doing.
I just love the texture that seed stitch can add to a piece.
And I reached another goal- the weight I was aiming for. We'll see if it's still that way on Monday, since that's when I 'officially' weigh in. But I am happy, it has been so much fun finding clothes I like that fit. I even hit our local Saver's (a thrift shop) and found several tops I like.
I'm debating going for another five pounds. Tracking my calorie intake has become such a habit that I plan to stick with it. It should make maintenance easier! I've gotten some comments at work, but not a lot. I suspect that the layers of clothes we wear in winter contributes to that. We'll see if it changes with warmer weather. Yes, I'm vain enough to like some comments and compliments about the skinnier me!
