I am trying hard to hold onto my 30-pound weight loss these days. I haven't lost any weight in a month. Soon, I hope to get back in gear and lose the final 10.
To compensate for some of the food splurges lately, I have to make sure I eat lots of veggies and drink lots of water.
I am not a water drinker. I really prefer diet Coke. Fortunately, I've kicked that habit.
But sometimes, instead of plain water, it's nice to have a flavored, sparkly water like La Croix. I like the grapefruit flavor best. (Don't you just love the French word for grapefruit -- pamplemousse?)
Or, a Pelligrino. Here, I have it in a recycled Bonne Maman jam jar, but it's also nice in a vintage wine glass with a wedge of lime. I will do this when everyone else is having a glass of wine, and I want to be "fancy" too.
The hydrangeas are dried from last summer's garden, and a little dusty. I'll soon be cutting new blooms to replace these. Love the soft colors.
This plate is one of four I have in green, pink, yellow, and blue, called Old English, by Johnson Brothers. Each has a different fruit, and I've arranged my veggies and fruit so you can see the apple on the green plate.
Reading A City of Bells by Elizabeth Goudge right now. Love it.
Thanks for your visit, friends.
