An Update for Darryl - This is What Your Wife is Up To.

I was so proud of myself when I went on my cruise because I only gained 2.5 pounds in the whole seven days. It was the 8 weeks following the cruise that hard on me. I love to travel and drive places, but I have the worst eating habits when I am on the road. After a couple of road trips, surgery and the Easter holiday suffice it to say I put on a little weight. Cali has suggested I go on the Whole 30 Program to try to get myself back in shape.

I have heard of a Paleo Diet before, I just didn't know what it was. Basically, I am eating meats, seafoods, vegetables, fruits and nuts for the next 30 days along with exercising to try and become a lean, mean running machine.  OKAY.... I just want to fit back into my jeans. :-)
Yesterday I made my very first pan of roasted vegetables and it was delicious if I do say so myself.
Beet, parsnip, asparagus, carrots, peppers, onion, sugar snap peas and cabbage tossed in a little EVOO, seasoned with a few spices and herbs and baked covered at 425 degrees for 30 minutes and then uncovered for 15 minutes. Pretty simple.

Todays Project:
We have a nice antique Oak Octagon table.Of course I can't buy an octagon table cloth and I have one I made three years ago that's getting a little worn, so today I made 2 new tablecloths for my table.

I made the blue and green for when the table is at its smallest. I had enough fabric left to make 4 napkins.

 This little table has two extra leaves for it and will sit 8 when the family is visiting. I have several tablecloths that fit when both leaves are in but not for when I need only one. I made an extended table cloth out the the same pattern in peach, green and gold. I just didn't have enough fabric for the napkins. Darn, I just might have to go back and get a little more fabric.  :-)
That's what I have been busy doing. Hope you are having a great week.
