I'm quite 'up' this morning - hopefully it'll last all day.
Yesterday I worked on or completed all the things on my to-do list. While I'm not writing one down for today, (trying to be a little more spontaneous today), I do want to sew more on Katie's dress. I made the buttonholes yesterday (always a challenge), and am starting on the sleeves. They have tucks on the shoulders, which make the tops of the sleeves stand up a little. Really cute.
I also added several rows to her sweater while tv watching last night. I hate to just sit and do nothing. And I need to start the crocheted Christmas ornaments I'm making the grandkids. There are four ornaments, and I'm making one for each child each of four years, so that at the end, each of the grands will have four different ones. They're animals, an elf, and a snowman. Really cute and not all that difficult.
I'm also nearly to the end of the book "Public Enemies" - tells of the start of the FBI. Interesting reading. Mostly I just read it while going slower on the treadmill (since I can't read while going faster, I pray).
It's supposed to be a nice day today - not grossly humid and temps in the mid-80's I think.
Have a great start to your weekend!
Afternoon: we ran our errands and then bowled a couple of games each. My first game was good, the second was my 'normal' (which averages around 90 points). We enjoyed ourselves very much and got exercise while doing it.
Have a great weekend, y'all

I just finished breakfast, and am spending a few minutes on SP before getting on the treadmill. I know, walking outdoors would be less boring, but I don't handle heat and humidity well, so use the treadmill. It's not totally boring - I read a little while walking slower, and pray while going faster. Rarely, I watch something on TV, usually a movie. Those oldies are often good.
I made a list last night of things to do/work on today, including sewing more on Katie's dress, and cleaning up my coupon file. Let's see how well I actually do.
Mentally, I'm 'up' today, which should help to carry me a long ways. I'm thankful to my Spark friends (and others) for your support. You don't know how much it means to me.
The humidity is supposed to recede a bit today (I sure hope so), but the respite will be short-lived. Oh well, it could be worse - I could still be living in the tropics!
Have a GREAT day, everyone.

It's evening now, and I've stayed within my calorie range for the day, even allowed myself a couple of hundred for a snack later. Late evenings are tough for me, but planning calories such that I CAN snack in the eve probably works better for me than just trying to gut it out....pardon the pun.
Tomorrow's another day. I'm planning for it to be another successful day. BTW, I spent a total of 2 hours doing heavy cleaning - between the shelter and my house. Ouch! Just broke my arm patting myself on the back.

I 'fell' ('jumped' ?) off the healthy-living wagon for several weeks: not exercising, eating whatever struck my fancy. And yes, I gained some pounds. sigh. I plan to spend time today figuring out WHY I let myself do that, and also to resume healthier eating and exercising.
Breakfast was multi-bran Chex and a nectarine. A good start. Now to plan out the rest of the day's eating. When I get home from cleaning the kitten room at the shelter, I plan to vigorously do some housework, which accomplishes 2 things at once.
We had our grandsons most of yesterday, taking them swimming in the morning. It is a private pool that we have access to, and thus had the pool to ourselves most of the time. That was good because the boys (ages 6 and 10) like to SPLASH! We all had a really good time. Later this month we're going to take them to Dayton, OH to the Air Force museum at Wright-Patterson AFB. DH and I have been there once - but never even finished walking the whole museum (it's HUGE) - and want the boys to see all the neat stuff. We'll be staying in a place w/an indoor pool, and have promised the boys swim time.
Time to head to the shelter. Have a great day, y'all.

I haven't posted since 6/23 and haven't even had use of a computer for about 2 weeks; and even before that we had several days of misery. My DH gave in and took the computer in for repairs. We had seventeen (count 'em, 17) viruses! Thank goodness we weren't charged by the number of viruses.
Anyway, I'm back, and have MUCH email to get to. It'll take some time, but I'm just so falling-down-grateful that I can once again access SP. I've missed you all muchly.
