Forecast for Today---HOT---101 Deg.
Where have I been? What have I been into? Why no posts? One might ask these questions, right? LOL Well, I would have to say that I've been right here while life has been happening. :D Glorie came last Friday for a quilty (or I should say 'shopping') weekend visit with me. We had a wonderful time--fast and furious, as usual, since we did a LOT of prowling in Ben Franklin and Wal-Mart. We did take her out on Friday afternoon for a boat ride. Saturday night we crashed and watched a movie on Hallmark with Valeri Bertinelli, and I had a ton of new books (yes, quilting books :> -- I'm been on a quilt book buying binge lately :/ ) she had to look through. We actually didn't do any sewing to speak of, although our whole weekend was spent in thought and talk :> of quilting and quilts and quilt books. :P Our time together is just sooooo fun cause we constantly bounce ideas for quilts and our sewing stewdios off of each other. :P I've started back on a walking regimen. I've been going out every morning now for almost two weeks. Today, I over-slept, so my walk wasn't until 10 a.m.---hot, hot, hot already, but I DID IT!! I feel so much better about myself when I exercise on a regular basis. My diet consists of mostly veggies and fruits already and has for months--so--if my weight gain isn't going away unless I start moving more, well, then so be it---I'm GOING TO MOVE MORE---I'M GOING TO GET THIS WEIGHT DOWN!!! I went to the thrift shop yesterday. Haven't been in months and months, so I just took the opportunity since I had to go pick up some things at the grocery store anyway. I found several treasures that I'll post pics of later (haven't photographed them yet). I also found two odd-size windows and an old rectangular cabinet that I didn't buy and wished I had, so I called them when I got home and asked them to hold them for me. Randy has had mediations every day this week, and has had to use my car (the truck is sick and needs to go to the dr. :/), so I have to wait until in the morning to go pick those up. He was home from mediation by Noon on Tuesday which is why I had the car to use Tuesday afternoon. :) I know this is real 'ramble' but I haven't posted in over a week. So, just wanted to let everyone know that everyone at Ship's Landing is surviving the heat. :P
