Day Seven

Today is the seventh day of taking the pill to stop smoking. I am still smoking, but from 40 to 50 cigarettes a day down to about 15; I do believe that is a major accomplishment. Tomorrow the dosages goes up and we'll see in the next day or two if it lowers that amount even further. One of the things I had been told is that this medication makes cigarettes taste terrible; they are tasting worse all the time. So I am still confident that I will stop.

I planted the tomatoes and green peppers, plus part of the flowers my mother bought me out in front of the fence. I have about 3/4 of the area done (YEAH!) The tomatoes were all droopy this morning; I watered them again and will see if they come out of it. Everything else was looking really good. I was very stiff and sore this morning; so I took the day off from the outside heavy work.

I spent the morning cleaning the house, then I organized a tad bit in the sewing area and cleaned both sewing machines really well and changed the needles in both. Then I began sewing HST together for a baby quilt I am making. In a little while I am going to work on the hand quilting of the Double Irish Chain (it takes me quite a bit of time to do the designs) but it is fun.

Have a great quilt day!


  1. Well done for sticking with the tablets. You can do it and it will get easier.

    Your plants will pick up. they always look like death when you transplant anything, it's the shock of being moved. Don't forget to give them some feed. that'll perk them up.

    love and hugs xxx

  2. My folks were smokers, and quit a few times. It is a very hard thing to do. Keep at it and you will make it. (And think of the extra $ it will give you for plants and fabric ;-) LOL

    take care, and enjoy your gardening.
