And on a Totally Unrelated Note

Join me, if you will, in a 7 Day Detox Diet. I've been batting this idea around in me noggin for a while, but some of the other detox diet outlines say that you should be on it for a month. No cheese or bread for a month? I couldn't do it. Seven days seems plausible. Anyone with me? (this is, I feel I must add, brought on by the sad scene I went through this morning where the clothes I wanted to wear to work today wouldn't fit.)

On a slightly more related note, new obsession=quilting. I've been to Fabricland within the last week and bought myself some pretties to make a small one (well, two). I also picked up some snazzy herringbone and houndstooth for an eventual bag (perhaps this cool one. I would be modding it slightly, of course. Discerning tastes and all.)
I also picked up some fabric for a summer dress, and not knowing anything at all about sewing, bought more than I probably need.
Very soon in the future I'll be going to the ever-lovable Lens Mill Store to get some more fabric.

I apologize for the lack of picture posts. I just might give you a fabric sneak peak in the next one.

I'm pretty sure that 10 days is suppose to be positive for the system. I'm trying to gear up for a detox as well. What date were you thinking?

CanarySanctuary said...

Great! I was thinking sometime next week, because I have to stock up on proper foods. I'm looking forward to it!
I think I'll be able to start on Wednesday. What about you?

Susan said...

I think I can handle a Wednesday start. No time like the present. Summer is coming regardless of what shape we're in! lol

CanarySanctuary said...

That's true! Stupid summer with its hot hot weather and decrease in amount of things to wear, and reasons to knit!

I scoff at the meme. Sorry, don't do em. Except that one I did. So, if one really wishes to know "X amount of random things about me" search the blogchives.

on a totally, totally totally unrelated note [grin] I love canaries and they abhor the budgie (big round seeds?) in the only mix I've been able to find on this side of the country. I'm sure they purposely pitch them out of the cage just to watch me struggle to vacuum the little bliters up. Do you know of any source for seeds?

The birds are picky just like people, and some are pickier than others! (some are also messier than others too!) I just get my seed from the pet store - just regular old canary seed. From what I understand the darker seeds are mostly filler seeds, and they're fattier than the others. But of course, the boys like those the most.

Thanks - I guess I'll just have to face the fact that I have a very messy picky eater decorating the left side of the house! For some reason the mini-dachsie won't even eat those white round seeds . . . and she'll eat anything!
