March 18 - Five years ago

The benefit of blogging is that I don't have to actually REMEMBER what I was doing when a photo prompt like "five years ago" pops up. I can just go back and read about it. Which might not be a benefit. After all, my brain isn't getting much exercise when all I have to do is click a link and read all about it. Anyhoo … five years ago I painted the living room and kitchen. This is just a representative paint chip – I'm not compulsive enough to have saved one from when I actually did the painting.

The benefit of crafting is that you have random paint chips lying around for photo prompts.

I'm off to a three-hours-away city for a meeting. Might do a little shopping on the way home. Long day, no walking (insert sad face here). No walking yesterday because it was too damned cold. Spring will be here soon. I think. I HOPE!

I guess that makes me compulsive. I have a sheet with a list of all colors by room accompanied by the paint chip for each - and I sold that house! I'm not only compulsive, but a packrat! But I really liked some of those colors and didn't want to forget - that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Happy travels. Hope it's a good meeting.

I have paint colors/numbers/samples for every room at my house too.

Link takes you to post with pic of wall of paint samples my middle did in her dorm room this year. Free and looks really great look. Bottom picture in that post.

I LOVE being able to look things up in my posts - dates, events, names, really valuable.

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…
