HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT NEW YEAR'S DAY.

HEY SHERRE - ARE YOU PLANNING TO START A JAN. CHAT &/OR CHALLENGE? I KNOW WE ALL GET BUSY OVER THE HOLIDAYS SO JUST THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU A GENTLE REMINDER.

LYNN - GOOD TO HAVE YOU COMING IN. THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY OF US OLDTIMERS LEFT. I SURE DO MISS WISPY AND OFTEN WONDER HOW SHE IS DOING. NOW OMA DOESN'T COME IN ANY MORE EITHER. HOPE SHE MAY COME BACK IF AND WHEN THINGS SETTLE DOWN FOR HER. YOU ARE SUCH A BUSY BEAVER. I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO SO MUCH.

GWYN - NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE AND ON THE CHALLENGE EVERY DAY. WITH THE WAY YOU ARE SO FAITHFUL TO YOUR EXERCISE AND EATING PLAN YOUR WEIGHT MUST BE DROPPING. I KNOW IT GOES VERY SLOWLY SOMETIMES BUT EVERY POUND LOST IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

TIME TO GET LUNCH STARTED. TAKE CARE. emoticon

Hi Team,

Still tracking every bite and being good, and yesterday I even did some arm jacks for exercise. I spent today wrestling with my computer which had a file system problem, and then organized the photos for the last 3 years and got them backed up to my external hard drive, so they are safe.

I also ordered more rebar for the foundation, which should be delivered tomorrow, and paid bills.

Sherry. . .so another small dog that lilybug likes, good! I didn't figure you had gotten anything enormous. . . just couldn't picture you with a german shepherd. We stayed home New Years also and watched TV. I did stay awake til almost midnight though!

At least it is not raining like it did so much in November and December. That should help with the building progress.

Take care all, Lynn

Hi Team,
Sunny today, and almost 60, so much better than it has been. I ran to Tuesday Morning this afternoon to check out craft supplies but they didn't have the new truck in due to the holidays, so it was a wasted trip.
I've been eating healthy and tracking every bite for 3 days now, so I'm being good. Tonight for New Years Eve we are staying home, like usual, too many crazy people will be going out! We are having shrimp for dinner with a good loaf of Ciabatta bread and broccoli. We found a cheese at Trader Joes that we both really like, a black pepper toscano, so we'll enjoy some of that with the bread. I may even go wild and make a spinach salad!

Sherry. . .you have two dogs now? I was just remembering the little white one your son got you a couple of years ago.

Oldmom. . .Way to go on using up the fabric scraps. Sooner or later I'll have a craft room again, but I haven't quilted for years so probably won't bother to buy all the yardage I once had. . . .It filled a large closet and was the collection of about 40 years!
What happened to Romeo that he can't shovel snow? I hope you continue to make slow but sure progress and that the new PT helps.

Willow. . . wishing you a Happy 2020!

Take care all, Lynn

Hi everyone -

Today was busy with appointments. First my chiropractor, then the MS Doc, then Romeo's PT. I talked to his Therapist about working with someone that has MS. He sounds pretty good , Much better then the others I have had. I know I have to go slow and so does he. If I get things moving, it will help with the weight loss.

got home and my daughter brought her dog over for more time with Charlie. We are trying to get them to like each other. Charlie I a cranky old man of 8 and she is a happy little one year old that wants to play. This is their third encounter and Charlie is getting better. Hopefully by the end of the week they will be friends.

It is snowing out and Romeo has not been released to shovel snow. I doubt he will be release anytime this winter.

It nice seeing you Gwyn, you keep me coming. Sherry, I will try to beat Linda tomorrow, but I have a feeling I will not. LOL

sat down last night with good intentions --- but no luck. fell asleep. As to exercise: I have been exercising 4-6 times a week for about 20 years now. I knew i needed a motivator so I joined a local gym--a YMCA -- and knowing that I spent money to join the gym I used it daily. I started out slow. Treadmill for 10 minutes a day at a 1.0 speed. and then built up.

Good Sunday afternoon -

Saturday was a lazy day - I did go through all scraps that I have that are 2.5 to 3 inches wide and at least 20 inches long. I made up 50 tubes and then sewed the ends together to make a circle. I put some elastic in the tubes and viola, hair scrunchie. I am not done, I still have about half left for elastic and then need to sew up the openings. I love using up scraps.

Today is a lazy day also. I stayed up until after midnight reading last night. It is a good book.

Lynn - Hope the house building starts to pick up.

Willow - my weight is going slowly also. I am going to have to do something to kick it up a bit.

Gwynn - you go girl.

The weather is so weird. It rains, it snows, it gets up to high 40's, it drops to low 20's. Will January be more stable, just plain cold. LOL! We will see.

Hi All,
Yes Willow, I'm ready to join. On my second day of eating well and tracking everything.
We went up to my mom's for Christmas but there were only 5 of us, 2 of the kids were at their significant other's homes. We were all together for Thanksgiving though! Mom sent us home with leftover prime rib, so last night I made some french onion soup with a tiny bit of it, and tonight the remainder goes in a middle eastern stew. I've been reading the Mediterranean diet cookbook and found a good recipe with lots of onions and some turnips and zucchini, plus a little beef.

Congrats on losing 7 lbs this year!! I'm not sure what I weigh now but I've gained a bit since the fire, probably about 10 lbs. We bought a scale but need to get the platform built for it so it can weigh me in the wheelchair.
I can never resist the urge to buy books, but read about a book a day, so I'm keeping up OK. We have been hitting some of the library book sales trying to find some of our lost treasures, but since storage is limited right now we have been careful not to buy too much. I did run into a nice leather boound set of 7 books by edgar Allan Poe that I couldn't resist, and have been buying some art books for my future crafting. I've been going to Tuesday morning fairly often and buying craft supplies since they are so reasonably price there, and I have to do something to add happiness to my life LOL.
Packing up your office shouldn't be too hard. . .I remember you cleaned it out a couple of years ago, right? I know, stuff sneaks back into the empty spaces.

Gwynanne. . .good luck to you! My plan is the basic eat less and try to get some exercise, but my shoulders are sore from 25 years of pushing a wheelchair, so I don't want to strain them too much.

Good luck to us all, Lynn

HAS BEEN RAINING OFF AND ON TODAY TAKING DOWN THE SNOW. HAPPY NO ONE IN MY FAMILY IS TRAVELLING TODAY. WE HAD A GOOD CHRISTMAS. HAD 6 OF THE FAMLY HOME FOR CHRISTMAS DINNER AND ANOTHER 6 ON BOXING DAY. PRETTY WELL TOOK CARE OF ALL THE LEFTOVERS.

I HAVE LOST A FEW MORE POUNDS THIS YEAR. REALLY WAS TRYING TO LOSE 10 BUT MANAGED TO LOSE 7 POUNDS WHICH PUTS ME DOWN 25 POUNDS FROM MY HIGHEST WEIGHT. SUCH A LONG WAY STILL TO GO BUT AT LEAST EACH YEAR SEES IT GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A PLAN TO GET MORE EXERCISE IN THE COMING YEAR. HOPE I CAN MANAGE TO STICK WITH IT. IT WILL MEAN LESS READING BUT THAT IS OKAY. I READ 60 BOOKS THIS YEAR AND SOMEHOW STILL HAVE OVER 250 WAITING TO BE READ. ONE OF MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS IS TO BUY FEWER BOOKS.

SOMETIME IN THE SPRING WE ARE GOING TO GET NEW FLOORING IN THE KITCHEN AND OFFICE AND MAYBE GET NEW WOODWORK AROUND THE DOORS WHERE I HAVE BUMPED IT WITH MY WHEELCHAIR. BEFORE WE CAN DO THAT I WILL HAVE TO PACK UP EVERYTHING IN MY OFFICE AGAIN SO WE CAN MOVE THE BIG BOOKCASE, THE FILING CABINET, 2 DESKS AND MY NU-STEP EXERCISER. THAT SHOULD HELP TO SPEED UP THE METABOLISM A BIT.

THE NEW YEAR WILL COME WITH ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES AGAIN. I WANT TO USE THEM TO THE FULLEST AND NOT WASTE ONE DAY. ARE YOU READY TO JOIN ME?

Hi Lynn, So good to have you back. I have missed you. Good to hear you are working on your home. We had a wonderful Christmas too. And yes I am working hard at getting rid of those extra pounds too. I had some of the family home on Christmas day and the rest on the next day so not much left. The leftover goodies are in the freezer. Will chat more later. Willow

Hi All,
It has been a year since I've posted but I'm still alive LOL! We just visited my mother over Christmas and I saw myself partially clothed in a mirror and was horrified. In my brain I'm not nearly as fat as in a mirror! We are still living in the RV and there is no mirror here, which helps with the self delusion. So it is back to tracking my food and being active on Sparks and eating healthy and heck, why wait til the 1st?

We finally started construction in September but are still working on the foundation. . .slow going. Everything is over engineered now days and takes forever. We poured the garage foundation last week and they are hard at work on getting the massive amounts of rebar into the house foundation.

I'm working as the general contractor and spending a lot of time figuring out the budget and ordering materials and fretting over delays and rainstorms, so I'm sure the group will hear more about our construction woes than you would wish.

Take care, Lynn

Good evening to everyone -

Well, we had some more snow early this morning. Not even an inch, but I still did not go anywhere. I did everything I needed yesterday. I went to Costco to get a few items and decided just to pay the high price for potatoes there so I would not have to stop at another store.

I rested the rest of the day and just heated up some tamales for dinner. Still have many goodies around the house I have eaten some but not like I used to. Tonight Romeo wanted Mac and Cheese. I found some cheeses we got for Christmas and so it is a 3 cheese mac and cheese, some garlic gouda, parmesan and cheddar. I put some evaporated milk in it since I had it in the cupboards. The timer just went off and I am going to eat. Have a good evening.

Merry Christmas to all -

Gwynn - Thank you for the Happy Hanukah. You are very kind.

Today has been busy at home for me. I had to rinse the beans that have been soaking over night. I then put them on to cook. I made breakfast for a change. I actually got my prayers in today. I really want to make a change and make sure I get them in on a daily basis.

I made dough for cinnamon rolls and after it was proofed, I have them prepared and in the pans to proof again. I have most of the dishes washed. Now just waiting for the cinnamon rolls to proof and then I can baked them. I will then give myself a spa day and pamper myself.

I am tired but not sure why. I have been sleeping really well. I might get on tomorrow if the hubbub dies down early enough.

Gwynn - Yay! for a new wallet. I made myself a new wallet and purse. I love them.

Sherry - It is cooling down again, but still in the high 30's and low 40's. The snow we had is gone, and we are getting plenty of rain. The snow is staying in the mountains.

Today, I went to the movies with my grandson and Gabriella and Theresa. We saw Frozen 2, it is leaving the theaters in a couple days and we needed to get there. Before the movie, I took Romeo to PT. They are getting more aggressive and he is sore. I have a couple different creams he can use to help.

Today is Romeo's 68th birthday. We are pretty much not doing anything. We celebrated on Saturday when everyone was here for making tamales.

Tomorrow, the only thing I am doing is cooking some pinto beans and making cinnamon rolls. That is all that is needed. Right now, I am going to take a nap.

Pizza sounds so good right now.

We are having all the kids over to make tamales today. I had to get boxes together to send goodies to the neighbors.

After the tamales are done, we will eat tamales and goodies, drink hot cocoa with Irish cream in it and watch White Christmas. Sigh!

Willow - That is wonderful about getting your hand done. That is horrible about your husband falling. I cracked my head falling once and it took months to get my brain to work normally. The doc told me no reading, tv and computer for quite some time I just limited it. Glad he is doing well.

Good afternoon to all -

Sherry - it is above freezing right now and according to the weather report it is suppose to get near 50 in the next few days. That is crazy, since we got 3 inches of snow in the early hours of today. LOL! Not sure if we will have a white Christmas.

Gwynn - I have been exercising daily also. I am doing the shoulder exercises mostly. They were given to Romeo for his shoulder and it is working. I am also sore, but not bad sore.

Linda - My headache is gone for the most part. I still have the feeling of where it began. It was tension and started at the neck. I just keep massaging and putting essential oils on it.

Today, I finished the crossover that I wanted for myself and then started laundry. I also made dough for mint chocolate shortbread and another one that is something like rugelach. I will bake them tomorrow. I should make some bread while I am sitting here relaxing. LOL!

I have a headache today also. Have had them for a few weeks, ugh!

The past two weeks I have been doing very well with exercise - most at the gym. I have had two non meat days this week and one day last week. No weight loss but my clothes are fitting okay. So I guess there isn't too much of a problem - YET. Just cannot drop the extra pounds.

Haven't been doing much. I did finish a bag for myself and cut out a crossover wallet for myself. It is ready to be sewn.

I have been doing the exercises that Romeo has been doing for his shoulder and I am finding some relief in the tension in my back. I will keep doing them.

It snowed yesterday while I was in church and then it is just cold. Had a little sunshine this afternoon. Suppose to get more snow by the end of the week.

The twins came over and put up our tree. I am sure Gabriella will be putting more ornaments on the tree when she get here. LOL! We will be having pizza tonight, they are bringing it. Did I mention that her and her boyfriend became engaged this weekend? My baby is getting married. I might get a couple more grandkids out of the deal. LOL! First we need to get her married. LOL!

It was a happy weekend.

Gwynn - sounds delicious.

I worked on my bag today and finished it. I love it and now want to make a few other accessories. I will make a cross over wallet and some other items to make it really mine.

That is a about it I am ready to kick Romeo out to work in his garage. I can't wait until the doctor releases him to be normal. He is driving me crazy. He is not a good patient and gets mad at me for making him follow doctors orders. I do love him but I am saying that through gritted teeth. LOL

Good eveing to all -

I have kept myself busy today. It was nice staying home. I decided to cut out a purse for myself. I purchased some fabric for myself this summer and have not had any time to make anything. I have most of it cut out and the strap is finished.

I also rolled out and baked sugar cookies. I made the dough a while ago and I needed to get them baked. I also made some dough for thumbprint cookies.

I think my stamina is getting better. I stay vigilant and see if it is really happening.

Wow, Willow - Busy, busy, busy.. I live in town and we have been in this house for over 30 yrs. We have lost electricity for short amounts of time. Usually less then an hour. Not many times though. Found out this year that we are on the same grid as the one of the hospitals in the area. WooHoo! They are usually the first to keep or get power back. If we ever want to sell the house, it will be a good selling point.

Gwynn - Woke up to snow this morning and now it is warming up again. Up and down, I am hoping for a white Christmas, but the other days can be just wet, dry, anything but snow and ice. LOL!

Today was busy, I made peanut butter balls and dipped them all into a bit of chocolate. I also did the laundry today.

TURNS OUT IT WAS LIKE I SAID. THE FLICKERNG PUT GENERATOR OUT OF CYCLE. BY 8:30 IT WAS FIXED AND FURNACE CAME BACK ON. GREAT BECUASE BY THEN IT WAS GETTING QUITE COLD. WAS ABLE TO GET DOWN MY LIFT AND OFF TO MY TUE. A.M. MEETING.
WHEN I GOT BACK AT 10:00 THE FURNACE WAS OFF. CALLED THE SERVICE MAN AND HE CAME AT 1:00 AND FIXED IT. OKAY. SO NOW IT IS STARTING TO GET WARM AGAIN.
AT 4:30 JUST AS I AM STARTING TO MAKE SUPPER THE POWER WENT OFF AGAIN. WOO HOO THIS TIME THE GENERATOR TOOK OVER AND I HAD ALL THE LUXURIES OF LIFE. IT WAS OFF UNTIL 7:00 P.M. ALL OVER THE TOWN BUT I AM HAPPY TO SAY I WAS ABLE TO MAKE A YUMMY HOT SUPPER AND ENJOY THE HEAT FROM THE FURNACE.

Good Tuesday evening to all -

Today was just as busy as yesterday. Yesterday started off with Romeo's PT. I then did some decluttering the craft room and a bit of sewing for church. Dinner was easy, it was left over steak with baked potatoes. Today was early morning dentist appointment for Romeo and more of the latter things. I did make up some peanut butter balls, well, the peanut butter stuff. I need to let it sit in the fridge overnight and then I will dip them in chocolate.

Not in any hurry to make more, just a little at a time. Dinner tonight was ravioli with meat sauce. Tomorrow night is still up in the air. Maybe pork chops with squash.

Good afternoonn to all -

Sherry - Amazingly we are farther north then all major cities east of us in the US. But only a few Canadian. LOL! It is raining and 42 today, it is suppose to cool off. I hope it does for Christmas and then it can go away. LOL!

Yesterday, I made some caramels, and cooked up some cookies I had made the dough for a couple days ago. I had errands to run yesterday and still have errands to run. I am waiting until next week. No hurries.

Today, I made up the bow tie cookies that I had the dough in the fridge. They are yummy. I need to make bread but will wait until tomorrow.

I think all the cooking and stuff had kept me moving more then normal. I take breaks because my lower back is screaming, but I have started to loose again. WooHoo!

Willow - way to go on the good choices.

Linda - Your temps are about what ours are. We just do not have any sunshine.

Sherry - Then you are much colder then we are right now I don't think we have made it down to freezing for the past few days.

I am pooped and not sure if I can do much more today. I had a mammogram today, and before that I took a package to mail. Then to the store that was on the other side of town to get some organic corn syrup. We took the long way home to check out the new freeway that is going in.

I tried to cut some short bread cookies and they just crumbled. I put them into my big mixer, added more butter and it worked. PHew! Our air is so dry, you can't put as much flour in some things as the recipe calls for. Thank goodness I was able to doctor it up. Those cookies are done and I made some more shortbread, this time it was pecan cookies. I made some toffee also. Then it was time to make dinner. I am now officially pooped. LOL!

I really did have fun cooking though.

This morning I went to an eye doctor appointment with hubby. We then went grocery shopping afterwards. The sun has finally come out today. It is in the upper 40s so not quite as cold as it has been. I did get in some exercise. I woke up pretty early to go to the appointment and feel sleepy now. I will probably give into a short nap soon.

Mom - busy day for you on Tuesday.

Willow - you did very well at the party. You resisted temptation.

The temps were higher when we went to, last night, then when we ate dinner. Tonight is got to 41. Tomorrow is suppose to be the same. It is warm.

Had to do errands today, my wheelchair had a piece that was broken, they told me to bring it in and they would see if they had the part. They gave me a new chair. I love 5 yr guarantees. I did not know I had one that long. It is supposedly the same brand and model, but it sits higher, and runs much more smoothly. WhooHoo!. Had to pick up supplies for cookies, and I did get a few of the items. I need to go to another store to see if they have what I need. I then went to the chiropractor.

I was glad to get home and made a few batches of cookie dough. Ready to sleep now. LOL

Linda - Glad the colonoscopy was ok.

Sherry - Hope the dogs are enjoying the weather. Is it as cold there as we have been?

I went to the gym this morning. Hubby had bought 2 poinsettias while I was gone. Very pretty addition to the house. We are still cold here (around 40 - not too cold) but I think we actually see a bit of sun for a change soon. It certainly will be nice to see it again. I finally got the results of my colonoscopy yesterday. Everything is fine and I should have another test in 5 years.

Sherre- I do like the new team picture. Very cute.

Good evening to all -

Linda - I hope things turn out ok.

I have been doing the normal around here. a bit of house work, a bit of sewing for the church, a bit of fabric folding. Cooking dinner, I also made a list of cookies and candies I want to make for Christmas. I made a shopping list. Most thinks I have on hand, but there are a few items. I need to check my supply of coconut though.

Tomorrow is taking my wheelchair in to get fixed and then off to the chiropractor. Wednesday will be even busier with PT for Romeo and dental cleaning for the both of us.

PHew! I am tired already.

I had an up and down month of November. My weight has fluctuated, I have been sick, finally got over shingles and had a colonoscopy last week. The colonoscopy appears to be okay. I called for the results but Thanksgiving interrupted the office getting back to me. But I will try calling again this week.

Happy December to all.

HEY SHERRE - THANKS FOR THE GOODIES. GOT SOME CHRISTMAS BAKING DONE. ONE MORE PANFUL TO GO. MOSTLY READY FOR CHRISTMAS. TODAY I AM SENDING IN MY CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS. I DON'T BUY A LOT OF GIFTS EXCEPT FOR THE LITTLE ONES. GIVE MOSTLY CASH. A COUPLE OF THE SONS-IN-LAW GET A SUBSCRIPTION TO NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. OTHER THAN THAT JUST A FEW SMALL THINGS FOR FRIENDS. ALSO HAVE DH'S GIFT DONE. OH AND THE KITTIES NEW TOYS ARE READY TO GO IN THEIR STOCKINGS.
I HAVE 2 CHRISTMAS DINNERS COMING UP, ONE WITH FRIENDS AND THE OTHER WITH THE GROUP I MEET WITH. ONE IS A TURKEY DINNER, THE OTHER IS JUST ORDER IN A RESTAURANT SO I MUST BE CAREFUL WITH MY CHOICES.
I REALLY NEED TO SEE THE DR. ABOUT HAVING SURGERY ON MY OTHER HAND (LEFT ONE). I DON'T WANT TO WAIT UNTIL IT IS AS BAD AS THE RIGHT ONE WAS BUT I WAS HOPING TO GET THROUGH CHRISTMAS WITH IT.

Good morning to all -

Congrats to Willow.

Have been wondering about Mac and Oma. When will they be returning if ever.

Slept in late today, 8:30 Yikes! I went to bed last night not feeling the best but used some essential oils and now I am feeling much better.

I am thinking about going to JoAnn's today but trying to hold myself back. Not sure if that will happen. Yikes! again.
