another quiltie.....


Julie and Steve and the baby left on Monday to go to Oregon...I have been pretty down the last few days..Trying to stay busy, but when I feel like this, I don't want to do too much..I still have been exercising a lot though..doing my two to three miles on the treadmill every day..Plus, we got a Wii fit for mothers day and I have been playing with that...my fit age is 33 and who can complain about that? I have lost twelve pounds since April...I can either diet and lose weight, or I can exercise and lose weight..I think I like to eat food too much to diet. Andrew eats once an hour all day long so it would be hard to limit myself, too much food wise...It is the stuff like getting dressed and combing my hair that are hard...I know things take time, especially the different stages of grieving so I guess it isn't going to hurt if I don't comb my hair...I did make another quiltie...I had a lop eared bunny that looked just like this when I was a kid..I kind of miss all the bunnies on Whidbey Island....

Your latest quiltie is just adorable! And congratulations on losing 12 pounds! That's awesome. I work out most days, not so much to lose weight, but to keep myself sane. Losing or maintaining weight is just a nice benefit of exercising.

Melinda ~ you amaze me, creating like you do and with all you have going on in your life!
Grieving and holidays, anniversaries and such are days even harder than most, aren't they...sometimes it sneaks up on me before "the day" or days after even. It really sounds like a good sign that you're exercising, I do for a little while and then.....something happens and I go into a spin
sometimes I guess we need to stop and note what we are doing and it may just be one thing to be grateful for
Your flop eared bunny is wonderful! Great quilties too! we have some baby bunnies that scamper whenever I go near this one bush...such sweet little things
sending all good wishes your way all ways oxo

The bunny is so sweet! Love it! Congrats on the 12 pounds, I'm working away a few (a lot) myself. It's never ending, I like food way too much. Blessings to you! Jenna Louise
