Only one pound!

It was a difficult Weight Watcher week, last week. Michael and I drove up to Branson on Thursday night to do a day at Silver Dollar City for Worldfest on Friday. WARNING! SDC is not a place you can do WW. I finally found a half sandwich with baked chips at Jack's. Note to self: next time bring your own food!
Then Saturday, we went to see my Mom for Mother's Day and take her out to lunch. Then on the way home we stopped for dinner. And Sunday, the guys took me out to lunch. That was four days of dining out! The week before, two days set me back.
Thankfully, I don't have anymore travel plans for a month or more. I need to get back into my home routine.
I was really surprised to have lost even a pound this week. This makes me at a total of 9 lbs of weight loss. My next goal is 10 lbs. Hopefully that will be done next week.
So...........with the traveling last week, I did a gob of knitting. I finished my Spring In Bloom in Knit Picks Comfy Creme Brulee. I am working on the finishing of my Creature Comforts Cardi. I just lack the sleeve ribbing and a couple of seams.
Yesterday, I overdyed some alpaca yarn that a friend gave me. I plan on casting on a Sontag style shawl. I only overdyed half of it and will use the other half for a contrast in the shawl.
I finished a Simply Sophie Shrug for Natalie.
Mother's Day was so nice and nippy! It was perfect for the guys building my Mother's Day pot sculpture.
My Ben just loves having his hands in garden soil. He is my nature loving boy!
I love gifts like this. Every time I go outside, I will enjoy it again and again. I can't wait for the flowering vines and plants to cascade over the pots.

The sweater is beautiful! Love the plant-always wondered how they made them balance like that-even more special to have your son make it!
