Broke the Barrier!

179.2 YEAH!

I broke into the 170s this morning! I am SO excited! I haven't been this low in almost 10 years! I can't believe it! It felt so good to step on the scale and see that 1 next to a 7!!!!

Feeling really good the past few days. I got a new computer at work yesterday and it is SO nice. It really feels good to be able to enjoy my time at the office with a shiny new machine that is so FAST and the monitor is so crisp and clear which will be great since I do graphic design and the monitor is so important. It is a new imac, 27 inch screen, so it is HUGE! And there is no tower, the whole thing is in the monitor so there is no big bulky thing with wires coming out of it under your desk (which is good because my cube is small) I love it, and I love that they were willing to invest in it for me.

I also got some side work from my co-workers to do some photo touchups and photo books, these hard cover books that I put together just like you buy in the store for the coffee table but with your own photos. One is for a girl's wedding photos and the other is for another girl to give as a gift to her friend for her wedding shower.

This weekend is going to be really fun, the weather is beautiful, so sunny and spring like. We are spending the day at Cultus Lake and cooking my mom an early mothers day dinner. I am making steaks and prawn skewers on the BBQ. I am making a big version of my favourite salad, spinach, broccoli and carrot shavings, cucumber, croutons, avocado and feta cheese. I also made her famous recipes of potato salad and home made brownies with creamy chocolate icing. It is going to be such a beautiful meal.

Tomorrow is a big day in pottery class. I am taking a soda firing workshop in mid May and I had to pump out a minimum of 10 pottery items for the firing. As of last Sunday I only had three. So this week I went to the drop in studio near my home twice and finished 7 more pieces complete with surface texture and decoration. So on Sunday I will have that off my plate and I can concentrate on my current projects. One is a large outdoor lantern that stands on a base. The base is very tall, about three feet, it was 14 Lbs of clay just to make it. And the top is another 12 Lbs of clay that I made in several pieces and will put together and cut out my holes to make the lantern part this week.

Things are going good and Fast 5 is helping them go even better! Yeah 170s! I still can't believe it!
