I bet you cannot see it right away either.
Look in the centre of the photo, between the evergreens & beyond the bare birch trees.
I changed my lens & zoomed in!
Now, do you see the Egg Island? Beyond it to the east is Fox Island, a much larger island.
The great thing about having all these islands is it protects us much like the coral reef when the water is high & strong or ice that creeps upon the land. I was happy to discover Egg Island & will view it better from a shoreline walk when the weather warms up some more. More snow on Monday!
A glimpse into 1986
My bone structure has not changed just the thickness of my body with weight gain over the years.
The whole thing took about 3 hours from start to finish.
It really was fantastic to have!
I enjoyed sewing for myself & the kids & have started enjoying the process again.
That is why I wanted to have a proper dress form but it did not work as planned.
I am a petite size & the full form is a regular size which would have fit over my size but not the other way around! In theory, the idea was a good functional idea, just didn't think it through fully.
I tied a piece of string to hold the cut apart body & placed it back downstairs wearing the lovely black lace top from my yesteryears.
The whole process really got me thinking, I know & have tried to lose weight... several times, probably more than trying than when I quit smoking back in 1992. I have an addiction to the processed food with the right fat, sugar, & salt combo. I'm working on that this year & have had help with a program that the rural community is doing called Fresh4you. You pay $10 for a bag of fresh fruits & vegetables once a month. In the newsletter, they give you the fruit/veg of the month with a recipe. This month was the avocado & how to make guacamole.
This is my first bag & I am impressed & will be returning next month for another!
I love living in this rural community, it is a healthy place to be with everyone working together to improve mind & body as we all age.
I gave them a piece of cheese & all was right in their lives again.
I did find Egg Island though! And soon the birds will be nesting there again, well maybe next month.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope the warm sunny spring-like weather is surrounding you, wherever you are. Stop by again, you are always welcome!
Have a great weekend! Tomorrow is TGIF & your weekend begins!
