Nothing happened in my sewing room this week because I was properly distracted by watching Wimbledon! Yes, I could sew while watching but I haven’t. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying each match to the fullest and it’s been awesome!! Unfortunately not every match has turned out as I hoped but it’s still been great having the freedom to watch as much as I want now that I’m retired!
My pick for Ladies winner got knocked out yesterday (Swiatek) so now I think I’ll pick either Badosa or Halep to win it and conveniently they play each other tomorrow! My pick in the Men’s draw (Djokovic) is still going strong and should make it to the finals.
I finally broke down and called a house cleaning service to come give us a quote for 1x month cleaning. I had been thinking about it for quite a while (over a year) however I kept telling myself that I could do it… but honestly I just haven’t been doing a good job of it. This cleaning service was recommended by two other people in our neighborhood and to my surprise she came by on Monday to give a quote and we had our first cleaning on Thursday! Ahhhhhh, it’s so nice to have someone else clean :-p Our house wasn’t filthy but it was dusty and I admit I haven’t been cleaning the nooks & crannies. The initial cleaning was $210 and the monthly service is $150. I’m very pleased with the job they did!
I mentioned last month that I started following a Mediterranean eating lifestyle and I gotta say I’ve been loving it! All the fresh veggies, beans and grains have really kept my sugar cravings under control. And I found out I really like quinoa…this is the first time I’ve ever had it and I’ve been using it in salads and even warming it up for breakfast (like I would oatmeal) and throwing in blueberries. I’ve also been enjoying cutting up veggies for my salad bowls and it looks so pretty!
An added bonus is I’ve lost 3 pounds without really trying – yay! And I feel better too, much less bloated!
That’s all for now! Hopefully I’ll get some sewing in this week and will have quilty pictures to share next week 🙂
Have a great rest of your weekend!
