Firstly, I found enough energy to foliar feed my veggies with a solution of epsom salts, just to give them a bit of a boost. Then I planted out some seedlings that were still in their little punnets so I started to feel that I had achieved something worthwhile.

Then I had a bit of a break and sat in front of the computer. I haven't mentioned this, but last week a 're-installing' of a program resulted in what appeared to be, a loss of everything in the computer, programs, files, the operating system ...the lot! And we had not done 'back up' CDs for this computer...ooh wah! Not good! My brother got it all going again but we couldn't find those files or programs...too bad so sad...get over it!!! (I was quite bereft; all my scanned craft stuff gone, photos etc, also gone)
Today I 'clicked around' in C Drive and I saw 'Windows.old'. I'm sure that that was not there even yesterday...but who knows??? Well I opened it and found all the files and photos that we thought that we had lost....what a wonderful feeling.
Now after that boost, the day looked really good...and then the postie came with a parcel for me from WA. A blogger friend had sent me some yarn as a thank you for some patterns that I had sent her. Thank you Maria (or 'The Other Maria' as we each call ourselves to each other)
After that, I spent some time working on a task that had been given to me for the parish Fair...sewing fabric over logos on 'green bags'. It's a fiddly business and I've been really slow getting the job done. I've handed in three already but had this lot still to do. Today I got the fabric 'turned under all around', pressed and pinned on the bags. So that's quite a bit of progress on this project. We will only charge $1 for them so hopefully they will sell. I tried to use interesting fabrics on them.

Later on I had a shower to get rid of the 'gardening grime' before DH and I headed off to do some errands and buy some groceries. I saw the scales there on the bathroom floor and thought ,' I wonder how my weight is going?'. I stood on the scales and got a lovely surprise...since early May when I started the 'Avoiding sugar' regimen, I have lost just over 9 kilograms... I'm rapt!!! I don't see the 'cardio' until mid November, so there is a good chance I can 'get rid of' a few more kilos before then. For years I have used an exercise bike and have lost a pitiful number of grams...but I kept eating 'those treats', albeit less than in previous years. Looks like Dr N was right about sugar :-/
