Just in time for the approaching winter storm, we purchased new patio furniture. Ha. It's just a little bistro table and two chairs. We got it at WalMart. It's very cute. I think we will have to sit out there in the ice storm and drink some hot tea.
The storm is supposed to be really bad. We are supposed to get a quarter of an inch of ice, possibly with snow on top. I can pick up my papers for delivery as early as 2 A.M. Sunday morning. I usually get them at 4. DH will help me deliver them. We are planning on getting them at 2:30 or 2:45. The roads are a concern. I would prefer to have the electricity stay on. We have a fireplace and a gas camp stove that we set up in the garage when the electricity stays off.
I signed up for swimming in Coffeyville this morning. I swam here in town for the last time until the pool opens again. I might have to cut back on my killer kickboard workout. I had to ice my right knee tonight. It might just be the storm front coming in. I am generally achy all over this evening, and it's not muscle aches.
I was excited to see the numbers on the scale this morning. Going down. Again. Finally. It was motivating. It kept me from going to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Coffeyville for lunch.
Tomorrow is shopping and cooking day. The bad weather is supposed to begin around noon. It will be a good day to have the oven going. I'm planning on making Chef Meg's herb roasted chicken.
