This week has been insanely busy. I feel like I have not been home more than 20 min. at a time. Actually, that is possible…
So in the interest of not going on forever here is my week in a condensend format.
Wednesday was my WW’s WI and I am very glad to tell you that I lost another 4 lbs!! That brings my total loss to 7.8 lbs of my mini goal of a 30 lb loss by June 30th. I hope that doesn’t sound too ambitious? At any rate…this week I added brisk walking to my schedule. It has made such a difference in my mood and energy level – well combined with a much healthier diet it has. Veggies, I still haven’t had enough of them this week but I am having them daily – which honestly, is a big change from my regular life – sad isn’t it?
Right after WW’s was my Book Club meeting – what a blast. And my good friend served a platter of fresh fruit and yogurt dip in honour of our (there are 2 of us) WW’s goals. Wasn’t that so thoughtful? I appreciated it. The book was only so-so but we had great discussions nonetheless – mostly about books but also a range of topics. This month it is my selection (and depending on whether or not our floors get finished, the meeting may be hosted at our house – maybe it will even be nice enough to meet in the garden).
Yesterday is already a blur I can’t recall…all I know is I still have to watch Grey’s and The Office and Lost from Wednesday – guess I know what I’m doing this weekend!
Today I went into the city with my Mom, returned by my 11 AM meeting (over sushi lunch yum!) took our Kinder group to a African music and dance recital that some of our other kids were performing in — a total delight! So upbeat and energetic – so energetic we had to skip out a bit early so our Kinder boys could jump around without disturbing other guests (sorry I can’t post pics of the kids – it was a pretty great thing to see), then drove about to pick up the rest of our group, bought some trees, planted them, tried to keep the group calm for the half hour left before they were picked up. Yeah – that is a bit like trying to clear an avalanche with a soup spoon. Never – freaking – ending. Finally they were gone, I came home and threw my muddy wet clothes in the wash and now I am in my jammies by 6:30 and plan to cozy in and catch up on my knitting (which hasn’t been done all week! gasp) and tv. Did I mention it has rained all day? Rained? No – poured. Our windshield wipers could not keep up and the trees we were planting? the holes we had dug were filled with water – won’t have to water them for awhile.
I will leave you with some pics from last weekend. Two of my cousins were visiting and we had a bonfire.
Yep. Kira has no fear of embers, sparks or smoke as you can see.
This is the Stacy Pullover Sunday night. Look for another pic soon!
Thanks for getting this far in the post!! 😀
