A darned good day

Six miles.

Clean eating.

A call from a state Senator.

Couldn't ask for a much better yesterday than that, right?

The meeting I thought I would be traveling to today has been canceled again because West Virginia is under a Winter Storm Warning. We could get six to nine inches of snow overnight.

Right now it's 45° and the high this afternoon will be 60°. Crazy weather makes me crazy.

My husband and I have barreled through eight episodes of House of Cards in two days. It's really hard for me to get him to sit down and watch a program, let alone a series, as he's glued to the news most of the time. But he's as hooked on this as I am. Sorry I'm so late to the party, but we're catching up quickly. And enjoying it immensely.

My biggest worry, prior to the cancellation, was whether I'd miss much of the Oscars.

I so shallow.

Unless we have a power outage, it looks like game on. We could probably watch some of the nominated movies before the program begins.

But I'm betting we finish up Season 1 of HoC.

Have a good Sunday y'all. Hope the storm is much ado about nothing, wherever you are.

LOVE House of Cards. We finished season two last week. I was tired all week but it was kind of worth the marathon.......

I'm happy to say that "Titan" was much ado about nothing here. Originally, we were in the 12+ inches zone, but things shifted south and we got … NOTHING! At least so far…they say we could still get 1-3" tomorrow, but nothing like we were all battening down the hatches for yesterday! Yay!

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…
