Friday! Again! A quote!

Keep your dream in front of you.
Never let it go regardless
of how farfetched it might seem.
~ Hal Higdon

Still trying to foil those Asian commenters with a tricky title. Although I think the last one showed up on a non-Friday, so maybe my titles don't really matter after all. Maybe they just like me. I'm so lucky.

As I was purging the teetering stack of magazines on my nightstand last night, I ran across an ad I'd pulled from an issue of Runner's World. It was a gatefold ad listing all the Rock 'n' Roll Marathons and Half-Marathons for 2010. I remarked out loud, "Why did I keep this? I'm not going to run a marathon this year." My husband overheard me and said, "Good. I hope you never do."

Which, of course, strengthened my resolve to run a marathon next year. (Thanks so much for your support, honey!)

Right now running a marathon seems pretty farfetched indeed. But the dream is in front of me, and I'm not letting go, not just yet.

Also in front of me is the garden. Here's the map (sorry for the poor quality and small size); I only wish I had more room for more seeds. I want to grow a grocery store. Heh.

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
