Nope, still didn't vanish...

Hey all! Just want to let you know that I didn't disappear on you.

Remember last year when my mother, my gran and I did the flowers for my friend's wedding? Well, one of her friends liked the arrangements so much that she asked us to do the flowers for hers as well.

So that's what I did on Friday and Saturday. (In blistering cold - okay not quite blistering - I might add.)

And on top of that, the scale I use to weigh myself has died, so I'm forced to hold off weighing myself until I get into town to buy batteries. (Ah, the joys of living on a farm.)

I will say though, that so far, things are going well. I did cheat a bit on Saturday (blaming the cold, the smell of fresh scones and the place's amazing jam for that.) However, I didn't crave any more sugars after and still don't. (Yay me!) And I'm not letting myself feel bad for a minor slip because... well, I'd spent a fourteen hour day on Friday and a ten hour one on Saturday, both mostly on my feet and lugging heavy stuff around.

Now things are getting back to normal, and I hope I'll easily get myself into some sort of routine again. I let myself slack for the first four months because of the nonsense with my publishing house, but even though it's over, I'm having difficulties with getting back into the groove.

How are you doing? Been up to anything interesting recently?

Floral decorating is definitely an in-demand talent. I have a friend who does that and I'm in awe. That sort of thing is way outside of my talent range, but I enjoy looking at what other people create!

Sounds like you have a talent for the flower designing.

As for the slip, don't forget that sometimes doesn't hurt-- it's the habit. (That's what I tell myself, anyway!) ;)

Your poor feet. I at least hope that was a great tasting scone. There is nothing more depressing than cheating with a bad tasting treat. I am editing and revising at this point. I hope you get back into the groove of things soon. Best of luck.
