The Earrings I Bought Today at a Craft Show

    Very pretty! I haven't been to a craft show in years. There are a few big ones around here during the holiday season so maybe this year I will get to one.
Thank you for showing us your earrings!

    They're cute. I rarely wear any earrings, but I have no reason to as I don't go out anywhere. I used to have tons and gave them all to my mom. I have become very simple in my old age.

The Southern Women's Show was here last week and it was a craft-type show but offered makeovers, mani-pedis, hairstyles, etc. Then there's tons of yard furniture for fall, plant ideas, mock kitchens... you get the idea.

A SOUTHERN WOMAN is supposed to worry about looking good and keeping a clean house and taking care of her man. But I've been before and it's fun - and the goodie bag is worth the $8 entrance fee!

Damn glad I was born in NY!

    Well, you have to lose weight this week, don't you? Maybe I should do this for a week and see how I fare...

You're doing a great job!

    Good for you! I have gained 4 pounds since last Wednesday because my parents have been here. Not a happy camper today.

So I guess I need to get back on track and sit down with my parents and lay out the ground rule son eating in this houes. Just got off the phone with mom and told her they can change the way they eat, or she can cook for her and dad, but that I cannot expect to cook for them every day as I will want to eat the way they do.

So I am back on my salads with protein and off the rice, potato salad and cole slaw they love so much! And the ribs, burgers, steaks, etc.

Now I have so much farther to go before weigh-in!

    Hi! I'm 52 years old and on Day 3 as well! I just got home from the hospital with a couple of pulmonary embolisms, sooooo, I can't exercise right now--I'm just supposed to take it easy! I also have oesteoarthritis in my knees. Had a scope done on one of them earlier this year, and they are doing great!

Keep up the good work!! emoticon

    Wow You sure have the highest Basal Metabolic Rate I have ever seen, the weight should just be dropping off you with it that high! I forget how its calculated, but I know Sparks has it here somewhere. I vaguely remember mine being 1700 or so, but that was when I had still a lot of weight to lose. Don't know what it would be now if it changes.
Great idea this daily check in!

Halloween 2012

Saturday, October 27, 2012

It's calling for rain for the next 4 days so I don't know how many kids we'll get on Wednesday night. Even when the weather is nice, we don't get many kids. Last year, we got 8 kids and that included my niece and nephew who live locally. So, because we don't get a lot of kids, I usually splurge and get good chocolate to hand out. So, despite the fact it's raining, I went to Dundas to Beanermunky ( www.beanermunky.com/ ) and bought these to hand out this year:

FYI - The Mr. Big chocolate bar is for my niece, Samantha who is 12. She said she would prefer that. My nephew, Nathaniel (same age as Samantha) isn't trick or treating this year as he's preparing to get his black belt but he has to abstain from junk food for 6 months as part of his training. However, he has asked for an O Henry chocolate bar when his training has been completed.

    That is awesome to give out such gorgeous treats! Our Halloween is usually bitterly cold and quite often snowing, but it doesn't stop the kids any. Mom says she usually gets a 100. I have the day off so I am going to be over there helping hand out the goodies and taking photos of the best costumes. Also the stores in the mall offer candy for a limited time period on that day and the kids all flock to it there and its interesting to see all the costumes there as well. Not too many people doing much for any yard displays here this year unfortunately.

    This is some kind of deluxe candy! Good for you. You're such a good little neighbor. I can't say the same. Until the time that grandchildren appear, I've become one of those turn out the lights and hide in the back room neighbors.

    And, one of the best things about shopping at Beanermunky today is that they were offering free samples of chocolate covered apple slices and I declined so that's my 20 points for avoiding a food temptation! Good for me!

    That is so cool! I love that you are buying per request. I will just say "Yes, please" to all of them!!! They look so yummy!

And now I am hungry for my lunch, but should probably start getting offline and start cooking dinner!

Man, I have spent 3 hours on Spark! I think I am avoiding the movement as my back is hating on me today! It even hurts to sit on my bed. No Saturday funday for me!
