A short one today

Blogging from my phone this morning. Our Internet has been down since yesterday afternoon. I spent some time with a tech person last night, trying to reset the modem or router or whatever it's called, to no avail. They promised it would be up and running by tomorrow.

Today's weight bounced back up a pound. As both of you know, I'm beginning to think this is it. Still on the plan - no reason to stop doing what has worked so well too relieve pain and clear up other nagging health issues.

I took a lovely four-mile winter walk yesterday. I posted photos on Facebook and would share the link if I could figure out how to do that from the phone.

They call them smartphones because they're smarter than we are. Heh.

My glutes and the front of my thighs are sore from the walk. So I guess it really was more of a hike. I'm glad I went. It will be way too cold to leave the house today.

I wish you warmth and sunshine, wherever you are. You deserve it!

I don't mind snow if I don't have to drive in it, if no trees come down, if our power stays on, if our internet stays on, if there's food in the house, if I don't have an interview or doctor appointment - which defying all odds I usually do...

So that perfect combination of circumstances is pretty rare.

Stay warm!

Testing comments

Hmmm…I did some research and found a suggestion that allowed me to leave the above comment using Safari, but not sure I'm willing to use the "fix." It turns out I need to allow 3rd party cookies in order to leave a comment through Safari.

I haven't looked further, as I need to get ready for an appointment soon. Maybe Chrome is setup that way already - I never use it for anything but to comment here and one or two other websites in the past that did not support Safari at all, so I've never really paid attention to its settings.

The other suggestion that was given in the posts I found was to set Blogger up to to not use embedded comments, but I would guess that wouldn't be desirable for you, as it apparently disables the direct comment function - where someone can respond to a specific comment versus just a straight line of comments.

I'll keep researching and see what else I find. Maybe there's another way around this annoying issue!

Turned the setting back off and am testing again.

Well now, isn't that interesting! I allowed the 3rd party cookies, posted the comments above, blocked 3rd party cookies again, and it's still working! Of course, within an hour of having done that I got a message from a friend who said she was getting bogus emails with links in that appeared to be from me. Not sure if it was related. Hard to believe having the setting open for just 5 minutes - maybe less - could have allowed a hacker to get in, but who knows.

Also between the first two comments and these last two, I changed my email password in response to the message from a friend, maybe that had something to do with it as well - who knows! I don't pretend to understand all this stuff. I'll monitor and see if I can continue to comment as time goes on, but for now, I'm back in the comment business!

Yay, Denise! That seems like an awful lot of trouble, but I'm glad you went to the effort. You always leave such thoughtful comments and I appreciate them ... And you!

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…
