Wow, what a great week, weekend, and morning I've had. Work has been busy, looks like rent will get paid after all!! Hee! Tim had 3 whole days off this weekend, so we spend extra TLC time together. Went to my Mom's on Saturday after work, had a wonderful dinner. Went to church yesterday, and came home and had ham, scalloped potatoes and carrotts..........and he said it was the "best meal I'd ever made." :) That always feels good to feed the hubby something he likes that has more nutrition in in then he usually gets out on the road. There was enough leftovers that he has most of the first part of this weeks meals to take with him already, which is good on the pocketbook and much better than eating out everyday...........which is what happens when we don't plan ahead.
I spent this morning at the Arboretum in Davis, which is my new fave place to walk. It's a 3.5 mile loop, with water, ducks, redwoods and lot's of other pretty plants and various animals at different times of the year, including turtles and lots of squirrels. I really love it there. It's nice to have a safe, pretty place to go walk, and I love knowing exacly how far it is, so I can try to beat my past times whenever I go. Lot's of people out walking, running and biking today. Very lovely. I jogged a bit of it, but not too much, I was sweating profusely just from my brisk walk. Felt great to start the day off with that.
I went over to my fave thrift store in Davis, and found a pair is very lightly used Dr. Marten's.......my fave boots. They are one of the nicest pairs I've seen. Brown leather, very, very great find. I was a bit shocked when I saw them, I never see those in thrift stores. A guy that works there commented on how nice they were and that he had his eye on them too............of course I had to snatch them up. With a pricetag of $10.00 bucks I couldn't resist. I usually don't pay more than $5.00 for thrift items, but these boots are in really great shape and I'll use them a lot, and I can't afford new ones, so it's an all around win for me! I also was able to pick up a book I wanted last time I was there, I was afraid it would be gone, but it wasn't. I am very happy with today's findings!! I don't know why thrift shopping makes me so happy, but it does. I've been thrift shopping since I was about 14......in fact that is where the majority of my shopping has been done since then. Every once in awhile I am super excited by what I find, today is one of those days!!
Going to go pick up Grandpa in a few hours, it's his mani-pedi day. We are going to watch the new Snow White and the Huntsman movie. I saw it in the theater, but haven't seen it since. I think it will be a very nice day for us. He hasn't been over in a few weeks, and it's just us two, so it should be nice. Especially nice to let him come over for a glass of wine, a nice dinner and we can chat about his favorite topic, WWII to celebrate this Vetertan's Day weekend.
Last time I weighed I was only 2 pounds from my 10 pound loss mark........hope I get there soon. It's nice that I'm not giving up. I've seemed to embark on a new path of self acceptance. I know that at the pace I'm going, I won't be breaking any weight loss records, but I don't intend to give up, ever, so I figure everything will move in the right direction in good time. I've done the y0-yo thing so many times, so now, I'm trying the tortoise approach...............he did win the race you know!!!
Hope your week is smashingly lovely in all ways.
