Broccoli Schmoccoli

Mmmm...doesn't my lunch look GOOOOD?? Seventeen pounds of raw broccoli with a turkey braut on the side and a smidge of ranch dressing. This is NOT a diet where I feel starved, THAT's for sure! *burp*

Today is rainy and kinda cold, but yesterday was so nice we just about fell all over each other trying to get outside in the sun! No jackets, fresh air, warm sunshine.....ah, it was wonderful! There was much running...

some grass wrestling...

and a little cloud gazing.

Just one fine afternoon of being out of the house. I can almost believe that Spring is on its way! Less than 2 weeks away now. I better get some tanning time in before shorts weather officially arrives....I'd hate to accidentally blind some poor unfortunate soul when the sunlight reflects off my pale legs! lol

Yesterday evening, Katie and I had a Girls' Night Out! We went to Pottery Schmottery in Elkhart and did some ceremics painting! I had never been there before, but I'm sure I'll go again...it was a great time, for reals. I found the cutest little garden gnome, and Katie chose a square plate and bud vase to match. Look at how happy we are!

This is what artistic bliss looks like...

Katie in the zoooone...

Look at how elegant Katie's vase and plate turned out! She used an awesome technique involving lace and a whole lotta toothpick tweaking....I can't wait to see what they look like after they're fired!

And my finished gnome....his name is Harvey and he really enjoyed hiding among the paint bottles. (He likes me, so I was able to coax him out for this picture.) I think he'll find plenty of places to hide at our house!

After the schmottery, we went to a nearby Mexican restaurant where I promptly put my diet on hold for the wonderful chips and salsa! (And a strawberry daquari, just a small mug. Heehee!)

Then I came home and finished this!

What a wonderful Friday! Today I'm working on Maggie's quilt...I REALLY want to get that done for her! Next project will be another folk art doll since Deidre Clementine was SOLD this week!!! Thanks SO much, Staci, the fact that she's going to YOU just fills my heart and gives me the warm fuzzies! She'll be on her way to you Monday, and she's so excited to meet you. :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Wow the pics are great! We enjoyed some outside time today too but it was cloudy here..no sun. I need to know more about this diet you're on! I ate a salad and a salmon filet for dinner tonight and I thought of you! I think you're inspiring me...;0)
BTW love the layout!

Frankly your ton of broccoli and a braut looks really good! (so does the salsa and chips)

I could never eat that much broccoli in a sitting...too much of a good thing! lol...I discovered (new to me anyway) that on cooked broccoli, put lemon pepper seasoning...very yummy! of course I used a smidgen of light margarine on it too but it is very very good.
So,Sounds like a great girls nite out and look like you had fun. Strawberry daquiri is my drink of choice too, when I occasionally partake of a drinkie ;) here about a month ago we had gone out to dinner and I decided for like the 1st time in about a year, I was going to have a drink. I ordered a Strawberry daquiri. they bring me a margarita, not once but twice! So we decided the bartender perhaps just had a different idea of a daquiri! lol
