Clash of the photo ops

The first 2013 Instagram Weekend Hashtag Project is 'waiting.' (#WHPwaiting)

Fat Mum Slim's word for the day is 'movement.'

I'd say those are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

I haven't decided to jump on board with a year of Weekend Hashtag Projects. I only did a couple last year – easy ones I knew I could complete without too much thought or trouble or travel.

I've definitely decided to jump on board with FMS's photo a day project. Again. For some reason I am able to make some part of my daily life work with Chantelle's prompts, while I tend to make the weekend prompts a little more complicated.

AND IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYWAY! Since you and I are the only ones who see them. Heh.

Yesterday, approximately 3 p.m. Looks like it should be 10 p.m.!
I waited until fairly late in the afternoon yesterday to walk, hoping to get outdoors at the warmest part of the day. It was windy and still very cold (upper 20s) when I left the house. Three miles and an hour later I was back home and STILL cold. I was cold all evening.

I. Don't. Like. Being. Cold.

We should hit the low 40s today – it will seem absolutely tropical compared to yesterday. I have plans to meet a friend this afternoon to walk along a little creek. We've managed to do this several times in the past two or three weeks; it's so much more fun to walk with someone who brings walking topics with her.

Her first topic was 'why do they call it – # – a hashtag instead of a number (or pound) sign?' My guess was that it must be part of computer language nomenclature, and I also noted that those who tweet use it more than other groups in general. I had no idea at the time if I was right or not, but she bought it and we moved on. Heh.

We actually don't need prescribed topics, as we always seem to have plenty to talk about. And if it's really cold this afternoon, well, between the two of us we'll have plenty of hot air to blow around.

last year I was in snow pants (over my exercise clothes) for most of winter. Yes, I felt like a toddler. This year found VERY heavy sweats that are very fitted through the waist/butt/hips, but then boot cut so they pull on easily over my shorts/capris and also hang nicely over my winter boots. In the evenings, before bed, I am IN a sleeping bag on the couch. Very silly, but I get in bed toasty warm and it is making a big difference in my sleep.

The weather here never gets that cold (Texas) but today it is rainy, and that makes it feel colder. I love the idea of snow and colder weather, but I don't think I would care much for the reality. :)

I'm visiting from NaBloPoMo.

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…
