WE are getting some pretty harsh weather right now. Lots of heavy rain, snow, thunder and lightning.
The lightning is so close to the apartment right now that I am shutting down for the night.
I hope to be back tomorrow morning to finish up my sparking.
Take care all. Stay safe and be warm.

Good evening my lovely Sparkers I hope you all are doing well and those who are injured, sick and or not feeling well, I hope you feel better soon.
I had 7 hours of sleep last night and only one nightmare and when I woke up from it I was drench in sweat and couldn't remember what the dream was all about except to fine myself shaking in fear.
So I got up and had a good wash, cold water on my face, dressed and made myself a strong cup of coffee and did sparked for an hour. Then I did a two hour workout walking, stretch, working with the bands and weight while watching last weeks Biggest Lose Show. I managed to get in 13,250 steps and used my 5 LB weights for my upper body, I did all 3 sets of 15 e=with them. It was hard and they were heavy but I did it without any pain in my shoulder.
Had a shower and then a snack and back to sparking. Waiting for John to wake up so that we can drive to mom's collect some stuff she needs and water her plants and make sure everything is OK there. It was.
John woke up at 4pm and we left at 4:30pm, got to mom's place at 5:15 and then did our thing and left. We got to the hospital at 6:30pm and stayed for over an hour. Parking cost us $8.25 for 1 hour and 5 minutes. Yikes. There is absolutely no free parking anywhere within a mile of the hospital. So pay parking it was for us. I didn't care.
Mom was in great spirits tonight resting in her bed and blankets on her to keep her warm. She was in fine form, so talkative and being like a two year old. Grinning all the time. I started to get very dizzy and had to leave ASAP.
Once again as soon as we left the hospital I started to feel better and could see again. It was frightening not seeing anything around you but blackness and stars.
After 10 minutes I was clear headed and suffering with a slight headache and arrived at Boston Pizza for dinner.
I had a glass of White Wine with my Ham and Cheese Strombolie and fries, my treat for the week. After all I did workout hard this morning and knew that I can have this.
At the end of the day my calorie differential was -263. Not bad at all.
We shall see when I weigh in tomorrow if I am still at my 125.5 or if I gain. I shouldn't but then you never know do you.
It won't bother me if I did cause I know I will be working out hard again tomorrow. We have more recycling to do, more walking to do and lots of shopping to do.
Now I am done for the night. I going to do one more hour of designing cause I got a new order and I need to design a pattern for it since I can't find one any where on the web or in books.
I have a good idea on how I want it to look and how I can make it work. I am going to use my Scooby Doo pattern and change it up a lot to form a new animal. Once that is done I will figure out what and how much yarn I need to buy and buy it.
Don't worry I will post a picture of him and keep you updated on all my knittables that I am doing.
Thursday I plan on taking 4 hours and work on my new web page and try and process it and then put it on line for you all to see. If not it won't be until other week or two before it is set up.
Well that all for now. Have a great night.

As you all know today/tonight was supposed to be a Valentines dinner date with the BF. So I called him at 3pm to see how his day is going and he told me not well. He is sick with a sore throat and not feeling so great. So dinner is off. He won't be coming over to see me even if I told him that I would make him dinner here.
His reason and I had to agree was that he didn't want make to get sick and pass it on to my brother and then to mom when we see her this Tuesday with some stuff that she needs.
I truly understand this and I didn't want him over cause I have been sick enough and I am just getting to be 100% now.
He apologized and we will go out this Wednesday or Thursday depending on how he feels and how I feel. You all know the struggles that I am having about things.
I am going back and forth and can't make up my mind.
What am I going to do? NOTHING!!!!!
I am going to wait until I know more about mom's situation, how my on line business is going (Web Page is still being designed), My true feelings about him.
Do I love him? Yes I do very much.
Am I in love with him? That I can't answer yet.
Anyways today has been a great day, I walked up to Safeway and got some milk, coffee, a valentines card for him, and a few other healthy stuff and walked home.
I managed to get in 11,040 steps today, I am so trilled about that. No other workout today, no physio, no weight training or strength training just some light stretches and some ball work.
I am all caught up with my sparking and I even managed to delete another 398 pictures in my computer. Yes I even went into the recycling bin and check each and every picture just to make sure I am deleting the right ones. I was and I did. I still have a ton left to delete and will do that over the next weeks.
I then spent 3 hours tonight knitting it up. I now have the left front and the back finished on mom's sweater and I am now finishing up the right front. Piece them all together and add the front bands and collar. Walla it done.
I even finish the mane on my lion and here she with her hair all done pretty. Now I have one with the mane and one without.
Tonight will be working on the last of the three Boston Terriers tonight. I still am waiting for pictures so that I can finish the back of the last two but I can still move forward and get some work done on them.
I will show you pictures when all five are done and that will be the end of showing them.
I am also designing a Herrin Tiger for a friend for her daughter's 14 BD in May. It is either in Black and White or Orange and Black. Once this is done then I will transform the pattern to be of Garfield for myself (that last order for Garfield fell through) because she thought I had too much on my plate with mom and finding a job. She might order one later in the summer so I will do one just encase. If not someone else will want it once I post in on my web page.
Well that is about all I have to tell you right now beside telling you that it turn sunny out today and it was so nice to be out in the sunshine and not getting wet.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC VALENTINES DAY tomorrow.
Thanks for checking in on me. I will be reading more blogs tonight before I go to bed.
