we make our first mortgage payment! It's really ours!
Took the doggie on a walk around the block twice this morning. That's 2 miles down for the day. I didn't want to get up early but I wanted to exercise outside today before the construction crews start. Yesterday I did the treadmill and it was okay, but I find it much more fun to treadmill with a friend. We have a pretty good hill here in the neighborhood, so T-bone and I tackled it twice. It was nice and steamy outside as well. My glasses got fogged up a few times.
Weight loss is slow this time around. I really don't know why. I've got to change things up a bit..kick start that metabolism.
I'd like to stay home all day and finish the stitching project I'm working on. But errands call, I have a couple of books waiting for me at the library and I need to run to the post office and mail a package out. I've been putting that one off for a while now.
It should be a quiet day. It's dark outside..more rain today. That's good. My flowers are thanking Heaven. So am I, for saving me on my water bill. I've been looking for the rain barrels. They are a bit expensive. We want to make our own, but trying to find empty barrels is not so easy. I may end up just buying one. They are pretty prevalent on ebay. Rain barrels and solar power. That's our next big projects. Lots of research still to do. I also want to pick up a storm door for my front door.
Speaking of storms. Yesterday we had a good one. The wind came in so hard and fast there were tree limbs all over. It had been sunny all morning, about 2:30 in the afternoon you could see the clouds coming. (Did I tell you how much I love the sky here.)Then the wind hit, the rain, thunder and lightning. Then the rainbows and the sun peaking out behind white clouds surrounded by blue sky. It's just amazing the transformations here.
Blessings to you all!
