I started my diet today. So far, it hasn't been bad. Of course, the day is young. I actually got out of bed in time to walk a little over half a mile, which is certainly better than nothing! As I write this post I'm trying to drink some green tea, which is recommended on the diet. Now, I'm probably the one person in the south who doesn't like tea--no matter what kind it is. I'm trying my best to pretend I like it (envisioning myself in England having high tea..), but the more I drink the harder it is to choke down. I'm much more of a coffee person.
Last night I sat down and started a flat spiral stitch bracelet. I decided to use very pale blue crystals for the center, and a turquoise color for some of the loops and orange for the rest. I think it's very beachy.
I think to finish it I'll use a pineapple toggle clasp and attach an ocean inspired charm--maybe a starfish? I had forgotten how relaxing bead weaving can be.
Tonight we're off to a softball game, but I'm hoping to find time either before or after to do some more work on the bracelet.
