Still Keeping with the Theme of 2015 - Simplify, Beautify and Modify

The title reflects the theme for 2015.

Simplify

Trying to simplify things, I am knitting and  weaving only from my stash.  Projects currently on the needles are another RV Striped Throw, Green Striped Socks and a Gemini with 3/4 sleeves.  All these are easy patterns which require very little thought, just plain knitting.

We have been in a whirl with RV travel and family issues. This makes simple knitting necessary.


Beautify

Working to organize stash so that the bedroom can be used by family later this summer. Plan to remove all the Boy Scout items and send them to storage.  Then there will be room for stash and still room to use the room as a guest room.  This should also allow me to clean off the dining room table.

Modify

Since May 1, I have lost 15 pounds by strictly staying on the Atkins Diet. Thirty-five more to go. I also purchased a kettlebell hoping to strengthen my upper body. I have noticed a little improvement. It was easier to move roofing shingles when we roofed the new Habitat for Humanity home last weekend. You would think that I would have lost lots of weight since it was two five hour days in above 100 degree weather. But no.  Still just slow steady weight loss.  That is better than none.

Until next time . . . . . . .
