Good morning Jan and all,
It is nice to see you again Jan, I miss you when you aren't here. We are having the rain up here, but no flowers yet. The pussy willow a few hundred feet lower has bloomed and gone to green, but up here nothing yet. I can see the buds on the trees where the leaves will be, but they are still very small and certainly not ready to open.
Yesterday after the TOPS meeting Gidget's groomers gave me a grocery bag filled with the hair from two of their dogs with very silky soft hair. I heard the call of a varied thrush and a warbler shortly after I got home so I started spreading the hair. It has rained steadily since then so I imagine the hair is getting wet, but I will go out and spread more today.
Today is my monthly food bank volunteering day. I am excited because I missed last month and I really look forward to my work at the food bank. I wish I could find more volunteer jobs like this one.
One of the exciting things about working today is I have finely discarded enough weight to change a size. It will be interesting to see if anyone notices. I hope so, but they may not. People who must utilize food banks are generally so wrapped up in themselves and their problems to notice what is happening with the staff. Still, some might notice. If they do I can recommend Spark People and TOPS, both of which are affordable for the people who have little or no money to spare.
Gidget's green shamrocks are fading. Her hair grows really fast. I suppose I could darken them, but I don't know if the ink her groomer uses is the same as I have here. I wouldn't want to put anything on her that might harm her.
Well, today I put my nose back to my personal grindstone. I have not eaten as I should for two days and it will show next weigh-in. I will keep better track of my intake today and work more on exercise. I got the results from the Dexa scan that was done recently and it shows some bone loss. To regain the bone lost I have to add more exercise to my day. I can do that. I have all the tools and equipment I need, I just have to use them as I have been taught.
So right now I will be getting done with my sign-in and reporting and then will come exercise. I'll see you all later, if not today, then tomorrow.
