March 28 - In the mirror

The steeple of the church where I park when I walk on Indian Creek Road.
Seemed appropriate for almost-Easter weekend. And look at that blue sky!

Great picture! You are so artistic with your photos. You have what I call "the eye" - I, on the other hand, have always wanted to have the eye, but have found it must be something you are born with because I sure haven't been able to cultivate to any degree! So I settle for attempting to take a picture that's in focus and doesn't cut off anything important.

Glad you finally got a day good enough for a walk. We are on a warming trend here as well. Of course, I'm not quite up to any lengthy walks. I've finally got the IT band issue under control - through dry needling of all things - and am reluctant to overdo it things and get it stirred up again. So I'm sticking to the specific exercises given to me at PT and some moderate amount of walking - mostly indoors where surfaces are predictably smooth.

And, if that means I have to go shopping to get my exercise, so be it! I'm learning to be a pretty good window shopper these days - lots of looking and very little buying. Very unlike me, but it's what the bank account dictates for now.

Hope you have lots more great walking weather ahead of you. Have a happy Easter as well.

Such a cool picture, and perfect for today! Glad the weather is cooperating for you. I got 2 crocuses now in my garden this morning, first sign of life springing forth after this long winter. Have a Happy Easter!

Thank you all so much for your comments on this photo. I love it, too, and I'm glad it resonated with you enough that you clicked through and told me so. Happy Easter to all!

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…
