Yarmouth Clam Festival

Yup, in Maine there is a festival totally devoted to the Clam!! My husband and I went yesterday afternoon and had a great time!! As soon as we got there.. Fried Clams were a must! They are so delicious and the first ones of the season for me. After we enjoyed our clams we set off for the craft area. You wouldn't believe it! Every kind of craft imaginable... pottery, soaps, salsa's, jams, aprons, pictures, photography, spices, toys, clothes and the list continues.
I decided on getting some pottery.. a great item, and egg poacher! It literally takes 30 seconds to poach an egg in the microwave in this piece of pottery.. wonderful!!!

I also got a garlic/oil dipping plate, a book at the giant book/yard sale and some spices and some nuts in varying flavors.... It was a productive day all the way around.

We had a piece of pie, enjoyed the hour long parade and walked around a little bit longer. It was a great day with great weather and to say "Let's Celebrate the Clam",,,,its a good thing!

"Take Off Pounds Sensibly".. this has been my motivation over the past month or so. I joined my local chapter of TOPS and have seen success!!! I've lost 12 1/2 pounds in 7 weeks and feel so much better. It's a slow process, but one that is being done the right way to keep the pounds off!!
The chapter that I belong to is wonderful.. they are funny, informative and supportive. I've tried for a very long time to get the weight off... I started at 173 and am at 160 1/2 right now!! I can't believe that I'm doing it!! To be with others who struggle with their weight and need help from others is great!! These people know exactly what I'm going through and can offer a much needed "high five" when success happens. If you've never looked into a TOPS chapter, go find one if your struggling with weight. It's very low cost and the slightly competitive feeling helps get you going and stay motivated. Just wanted to share my weight struggles with you and hoping if you have any helps.. pass them along!! would love to hear from you!!!

My Finished Table

Well, ,here it is.. my "new" kitchen table.. I love how it turned out and love that my husband took the time to create my vision. He even rounded the corners for me... I have to say.. it's a little big for my tiny home, but I'm saying it's a keeper!!
