September 14 - Favorite

Wow, do I ever love this photo. Um, I also love McDonald's iced coffee
with sugar-free vanilla syrup, which is my favorite guilty pleasure.
But seriously, I had no idea how cool this picture was gonna be from the
image I uploaded to Instagram from my phone. (I sure am full of myself!)

Not a fan of McD in front of anything, but agree it is a GREAT photo. And you might have said, but what camera are you using? I think I might put one on my christmas list. My photographer went to college and took her camera . . .

Vickie, this is the only thing I EVER buy at McD's. I used my phone to take the picture, with the cup sitting in the cup holder in the car. My phone is a Motorola Electrify. I have a Canon Rebel but I rarely use it any more. They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and I ALWAYS have my phone with me. (Just ask my husband! 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.

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…


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!!!!!!
