Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last few days. You probably figured out that as my hand improved, I would find more things to do besides type blog entries! Here’s just a few pics from the last few days.
Friends? Hard to tell. Sophie comes and sits by Noah quite often. When she’s not trying to boss him around, or refusing to play with him, or stealing his bone, I guess they could be considered friends. Not exactly the character traits I look for in a friend…
One of the things I still can’t do with my hands is cut the dogs toenails.
The other night I couldn’t find Monk anywhere.
The latest almost finished quilt. Another thing I can’t do very well with my hand is use the rotary cutter. So I will be waiting a few days to finish and put the binding on this quilt. Then it will be listed on my Etsy shop!
Backing fabric flipped over:
Somehow Noah discovered the joys of the couch. He started by just sitting his butt on the couch, thinking I wouldn’t notice. Then he started jumping up on it to chew his bone. That is not going to happen. Don’t talk to me about doggie unions. Some things in life aren’t fair.
Other news: My stitches are out! It felt a lot better to have them out. They said I can swim and lift weights in another week. And they said I could sew by hand. I started working on some of my hand quilting that same night. I haven’t hand quilted in 4 months!
I’ve been getting some good cardio walks in since my last entry!
Found a new recipe, Paleo Berry Cobbler, and it is definitely worthy! No grains and no sugar. But definitely a dessert. Check it out. I made it with fresh peaches, and it was scrumptious. If you make it into 6 servings, it will be about 250 calories. I would increase the ratio of fruit to topping the next time I make it, which will bring the calories down. Don’t worry, I’m not turning into a carnivore. But I like the idea of trying new foods (almond flour) and I like the idea of baking a dessert without grains and sugar! BTW, the almond flour that I got at Trader Joe’s was extremely cheap compared to what I’ve seen locally.
I picked up some gluten free baking mix at the store today and am going to try making my scone recipe with that tomorrow morning. I’ll let you know how that turns out!
