Yes, already... DH's family Christmas to be exact. This year, for the first time, we celebrated it in a community hall... 44 people (and 1 more on the way) is just too much for someone's home! It was a good day. I know I had more calories t... Read more

Well, if I was going to eat emotionally...
...today would be a day I'd do just that.
Started working on the bookkeeping for the year (only 6 months behind). I started with the 'easy' things to track... and have been off on goose chases finding the right papers. LOL!
But, hey, I'... Read more
Weekend Whoops & Back on Track!
Well, I've gone and done it... eaten too many Hallowe'en chocolate bars. I had 3 yesterday, and 5 today. I'm going on record here to say... that's it, no more. I do NOT want to regain the weight I've worked so hard to lose!
On a positi... Read more

Lemon Squares, Aqua Flares!
Had to make squares for the church (funeral luncheon). They are made, I've sampled them (delicious) and I have tried to deliver them... but the woman isn't home right now! Good thing they are sealed shut, and good thing they have to go elsewhe... Read more

My cardio workout, that is.
I spent the day travelling and visiting with my friend in hospital enroute home. The luggage is in the house, it's partly unpacked, I've had supper and had a restful sit down outside. So, a bit more unpacking w... Read more

Well, here I am in Montreal for a few days. My DH is attending a conference, which gives me lots of time to walk! And I sure did yesterday... 2 miles with LS before breakfast, 5 hours wandering around Catherine Street (i.e. - shopping!)

Fire Scare and Gratitude
Last night I switched on our furnace and turned it up 1/2 a degree. Within 2 minutes the smoke alarm in the basement began to howl. And then I smelled smoke. Hurried upstairs so I could get dressed while I called 911. Shut off the furna... Read more
