Yesterday's gone

And I really didn't get to knock off much of that list.

But that doesn't mean I didn't get a lot of stuff done. I should have added "go to recycling center" and "visit Pat" to the list. Then I could have crossed them off. Heh.

My husband found a recycling center that takes anything with a cord (as well as everything else). And you know how things with cords tend to pile up after a while. Especially electronic things – broken monitors, anyone? We loaded some stuff into the truck and made the trip, dumping the treadmill – which hasn't worked in a very long time – and a cheap weight bench. And a monitor.

Afterward we visited a sick friend in the hospital. She's critically ill, and it was difficult to see her with all the monitors and tubes and equipment. She's in ICU and is receiving excellent care. I had dinner with her just a couple weeks ago …

I worked on the Keynote presentation for about 90 minutes when we got home. I don't know if PowerPoint does the same things Keynote does – my online research indicated Keynote's animation features are something PowerPoint can't do. Keynote is meeting my needs, and has so far been easy to learn. The big thing for me will be to make sure I hit the space bar in a timely manner in order to move the presentation along.

I keep thinking it's a movie, and will play itself.

Walked three miles yesterday, and am going to do four today. Slowly climbing out of the hole I've been in for longer than I like.

I TOTALLY add things to my list after I've done them, just so I can cross them off.

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…
