1. We had a good Easter.
We went to my mom's on Saturday for supper.
On Sunday, Sage & I attended our church's sunrise service.
In the evening we went to see Furious 7.
(We'd tried to go on Friday and stood in line, only to have it sell out
right before we reached the counter!)
It was really good!
Jonah's already planning on going to see it again tomorrow with his friends.
2. I've decided that I need to give up sugar & deep-fried foods again.
I've gained weight over the winter and would like to lose it.
I gave up sugar and deep-fried foods in 2012 and didn't eat sugar for two & a half years.
Unfortunately, I started eating it again and I can't seem to do things in
moderation -- I'm just not wired that way.
I'm an "all or nothing kind of girl. ;)
So, in an effort to find some sort of accountability,
I thought I'd post my progress on my blog,
hoping it will help me stick to my plans....
3. I gave up sugar on Monday and had my first real temptation last night:
it was Jonah's Jazz Choir's Coffee House (i.e. concert & dessert night)
There are 18 kids in the choir that are going to Banff in two weeks.
Jonah is one of the six boys.
He sang a solo in one of the songs (I'll be There) and did a super job!
Oh, and Sage won a really nice hoodie as a door prize. :)
(Oh, and I brushed my teeth right before we left and didn't eat anything all evening -- yay me!)
4. We have the Festival of the Arts coming up in Morden in the next couple of weeks.
Sage & I are playing a duet on Sunday at the Sacred Evening (Be Thou My Vision.)
On Tuesday morning, Jonah will play two songs on the piano
and then we'll play a duet together (Maple Leaf Rag).
In the afternoon, Sage will play two songs.
The following week, Sage and Jonah will both participate in the Speech Arts
section of the Festival.
They'll each perform one English & one French poem.
Jonah is also doing a duet with a friend.
5. I have four cards to share today.
I was totally inspired by Laurie Willison's
and found that using my MISTI to make my card made it super
quick and easy to make four cards with the same design.
I just changed up the colours on each one.
I used my PTI Feather's Finery large feather for the technique.
On this card, I inked it in (from top to bottom) tropical teal, Hawaiian shores & aqua mist.
The sentiment is from PTI's Think Big Favourites #3.
A few buttons and twine finish them off.
Here, I used Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry and Sweet Blush.
On this one, I inked the feather in Plum Pudding, Winter Wisteria & Lavender Moon.
And lastly, this one was inked in Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky & Spring Rain.
Thanks for looking!
