It's A Good Day!!

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Tues. afternoon I went to my daughter's for some "Mother-Daughter" time. She crocheted on an afghan she started about a year ago and I knit on some socks I am making for my sister for Christmas. Jill, her 10 year old daughter, "gutted" a pumpkin. It was wonderful!!! Has been a long time since we have just sat and visited, without others around or fussing about "how frustrating" life can be.
We have decided that we will probably need a weekly dose of this time together!!

Yesterday we met for lunch at Taco Bell - and another good time together.

You know, I just love that girl. She is so loving and giving. Her daughter's do not know what a special Mother they have. Someday they will know!

Am at work - another blessing in my life. It just amazes me at how much God loves and cares about such small details in my day to day activities.
HE is soooo goooooood!!!!

And, He even helps me get in my steps each day!! emoticon

Oh Happy Day!!

Monday, October 18, 2010

It is really cold here - guess it is time to start warming up my pickup in the mornings before heading to work!! This morning - 31 degrees!!

Have not done so good with steps this past week - started off good and then just fizzled!
I walked with Leslie when I did the best - and did that in the evening. So, perhaps that is a better way. Sat and Sun did not get in any extra steps.

Sat finished cleaning up the patio and emptying some of my pots. And moved the hutch in the dining area - to make room for a small freezer I have ordered. Sunday afternoon took a long nap - after reading some. Then in the evening knit on some socks I am making for my sister for Christmas. Need to get out my knitting and see what more I need to do for the holidays. One year I made quilted table runners for everyone. And, of course, did not make one for us. This year think I will make one for my sister and one for us.

Hope every one is having a good fall!!
Barb

    Sounds like the warm weather is over there. On Saturday we had frost for the first time in some of the outlying areas. I still have plants on the porch that I must find a place for before they freeze.

More Steps

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Well, I remembered my pedometer today, but had only about 2800 steps when I got home from church this evening - not enough!!. So took a walk with Leslie Sansone - and now it reads 4062. YEAH!! So that will really help my daily average for the week. My goal for this week is at least 3000 per day.

My daughter has lost 12 lbs. using the Weight Watchers formula. She is really doing good. So tomorrow she is going to stop by the church where I work and is going to go over the system for me - and I am going to "try" to follow the plan with her. We will see how that goes. Sure would like to get some weight off. But, just wishing is not going to do it. I really do not eat that much - just the wrong things at the wrong time of day.

It is past my bedtime - so had better "hit the sack"!!!
Good night all!!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I forgot my pedometer Sat and Sun - Is that a good excuse???
So, today went to WalMart to get my steps in today - and tonight my pedometer reads 3624 steps. YEAH!! Someday I might even have 500o average. I think that will be my next goal. Guess I'll being "shopping' at WalMart a lot. It is such a big store and I just love to "window shop" there.

Ronnie, you are such an encouragement - and Martha, love hearing about the happenings in your day. Miss you when I don't hear from you!!


Well, it is definite bed time - my eyelids are getting so heavy!!
