I had a little time yesterday between the end of the workday and my book club meeting, so went to JoAnn Fabrics to find some fabric for the do-rag project.
I walked into the store and heard this:
...and took it as a sign that I was on the right track. Sharon is the one who introduced me to Eva Cassidy and I remember discussing this song, in particular, with her years ago; we listened to a couple of Eva's CDs backwards and forwards when we drove out to CA together to deliver Katie to university there.
I found three fabrics that I hope she'll like. Patterned and colorful, but no butterflies and not hideous. I didn't get home 'til late last night and it's so darn dark in the morning now -- I didn't get any photos taken. Eva stands in for the photo today. ; )
I've lost a solid 4 pounds as of today, even with eating out last night. We went to Olive Garden and I did a little nutrition research beforehand -- and I'm so glad I did. H.O.L.Y.M.O.L.Y. I decided on Linguini alla Marinara, except I had bucatini in place of the linguini, and a salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Planning is key! I did not plan well for today, so we'll see how well I do on the fly.
