Stormy Weather

Monday, March 21, 2011

Boy did we have a bad storm a short time ago. We had a warning on WeatherBug that said winds could be up to 70 mph. It rained really hard and I haven't been outside (since it is dark) to see if there was any damage. Said we would possibly get hail up to the size of a quarter. I don't think we got the hail. I worked in the yard for over 2 hrs today anticipating the rain. I dug up 2 big patches of day lilies (not sure what kind because we just moved here). I separated them and made about 20 plants. Hubby used rototiller and made the flower bed where I put them nice to plant in. I was happy to get that done today. I LOVE gardening. We will see what tomorrow brings.
Remember to eat healthy, exercise, and drink your water. Keep moving forward.

    Good for you getting out in the garden before the weather hit. I missed the super moon the other night, still cloudy and rainy up here in the pacific northwest... probably til June or longer. LOL

Have a great rest of the week.

    Glad you got all that yard work done before the rain! We got the storms at home too, but at work I could just see the lightening in the distance, so fortunately I missed this evenings. Good thing after this mornings!

Super Moon

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Well, did you go out and look at the Super Moon? I looked last night and it is really amazing how much bigger it is. However, yesterday morning, hubby and I were looking at the pre Super Moon around 6:00-6:30. It was an orange color instead of so white and it was absolutely beautiful. We watched as it lowered itself down below the mountains and trees. I truthfully have to say, I enjoyed yesterday morning's moon much more than today's. I tried taking pictures, but they didn't turn out well. I had my camera set for night landscape, but didn't keep it still enough to get a good photo. Sure wish I had because it will be a long time before Super Moon surfaces again.

    I loved it! I got up all through the night and looked out to see it! We had clear skies here and it was awesome!

I always check the full moon calendar for the year, before I pick my vacation days. I LOVE to be at the beach with a full moon! To watch the moon rise over the ocean and see the moon beams in the water is fabulous!

    I'm glad you got to see what you did. Meghan and I missed the pretty orange. I read on Inside NOVA that it was huge and bright orange as it rose over the horizon. We didn't look til much later when it was smaller and white, although very bright.

    I loved it. We were actually taking my sister back home when I saw it for the first time. It was close to the horizon and it was orange, big, and beautiful. As the moon rose up in the sky, it became white and much more brighter. After we dropped my sister off and were heading home, it was right in front of us. It was so bright I thought I might have to put the visor down. lol

The Weight Tracker?

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I have been maintaining for 9 years now. When going to WW maintaining meant within 2 lbs either way of your goal weight. I set my goal weight on the SP weight tracker to 134. Last week I weighed in at 133.5 and yesterday at 133. When I put it in the tracker, it changed my goal weight to the lower amount of 133. I don't like that because when I am back to 134, it will as if I am over my goal. There should be an allowance for a couple of pounds either way, because no one stay exactly the same all of the time. I know I can go in and change it, but your tracker should NOT change automatically to lower your goal weight if you are a pound under goal. Now that I have had my say on that, I want everyone to know emoticon and love sparking. Try to eat healthy, track what you eat, exercise, and drink your water. Nancy

    Same thing with me when I hit goal. 6 months later I lost 2 lbs, so I put it in my tracker...it changed my goal weight. I don't like that because i was told to leave myself a couple of pounds lower & higher than my goal for fluctuations. emoticon

Enjoy the time change... I really don't like it, spring or fall leave the time alone.

Have a great Sunday...

Dreary Day

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Today is a really dreary day. Has been raining since yesterday and, of course, there is no sun. Thinking positive, this rain is badly needed and will make the flowers spring up better out of the ground. Have you any popping up yet? I have tulips coming up and iris. On another good side, I have been exercising, tracking, and drinking my water. How are you guys doing?

    I'm in an office all day with no windows, so not sure what the day holds out there. I know it was nice and sunny when I left for work at 6:45am this morning. Tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be miserable days here. Guess I will be thankful for my "no window office" then. lol.

Think sunny thoughts! :-)

    Ohio is deary as well, and probably several degrees colder. On the positive side, the rain is melting the last vestiges of snow.

I am off to the gym and then to a hash walk.

Snowing here

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Well, we are getting some snow. Not supposed to be more than an inch. The hyacinths are popping up and the tulips too. Hopefully won't be more than they are saying. Was so nice the other day, I worked in the yard for more than 4 hours and tonight it is snowing........

    Sorry you're getting snow again. I know you're anxious for Spring. Hopefully, it won't last long and you will have Spring weather again.

Have a great week!

    Yeah we were supposed to get rain, but got a heavy enough snow that everything is covered again and did I say it was cold?

    It was snowing here too. Went to church and it was nice and warm with a little rain. Came out of services and the ground was completely white. We have tulips coming up and I hope this weather doesn't affect them.

    LOL...this time of year is so unpredictable! When I looked at the radar and saw snow right near you I was pretty sure it was headed to you! Our temps have dropped to 35 already, but rain supposed to be over here before it gets below freezing.

Hope you still get to do all you were going to do tomorrow!
