Good morning Girls,
Lots of sunshine here. Supposed to be up to 40 today, then starting tomorrow, we are supposed to have winter. We shall see on that. They have threatened and threatened winter here, and no show so far. The ground is mostly covered here in the woods, but at my Moms, mostly bare ground. Hubby will clean the chimney today, before the snows come. Much easier without all that snow on the roof.
Lets see, yesterday went well. Brother and I talked over a lot of things regarding Mom. It's like 30 miles to the lawyer, so had a lot of truck talkin' time.
My hands still giving me fits. Think they will be that way until I can get something done with them, this summer. So I do have that green sweater sewn together, need to get a picture. Still working on a hat I started over the weekend. Almost up to the decreases.
Did more knitting on a baby sweater in the car on Sunday. There are 3 baby sweaters that I want to start, I can hardly wait, but I want to finish the two that I already started. One I sort of put aside, as I am not sure that I am doing the collar right. I need to get back at that one. I also have an afghan started. Just lots of stripy stripes. When I am almost done with a skein of yarn, it goes into that afghan. Will take a long time to finish it, but a goodly way to use up skeins. I have about 6 inches across on it is all...not very far at all.
Sure wish I could walk outside. I need fresh air today. Maybe once I get past the icy driveway, I can walk in the woods. Shouldn't be icy there, I wouldn't think. I will try that.
Maybe in 2 sessions. One this morning and one this afternoon.
My brother told me yesterday that he is using the treadmill. Only 12 minutes a day so far, but he is progressing. I am so proud of him. He and myself have Dad's "fat genes"..lol Brother is close to 300 pounds, in the 290's. I am concerned for him. He said I inspired him, by my 45 pound weight loss and my walking. Now wasn't that nice of him to say. It has been 3 years to get that weight off, and I am not losing now...I either need to eat less, yeah right, or move more...yeah right again...lol I have about 60 more pounds to go. Need to see those scales move downward...I just keep on keepin' on.
I am so proud of all you girls. You are doing wonderfully with your eating and your moving. So proud of you. Keep it up. I will be here by the sidelines, waving at you and cheering you on.
Have a super blessed day girls. Try to get some fresh air today, even if it means only opening a window to let the fresh air in.
