    Happy Friday,

    I get visual disturbances from the bad lighting at work. Yesterday was a scary day for me as I have never had it so bad. I made sure my Sup knew at least.

    Cold here and wet all weekend. There goes my shopping potential, but online will do just fine.

    Lana -get your headphones on and dance to your favorite music.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Sara - I never think of dancing, but what a great exercise!

    Hang in there with your rain.

    Hey Y'all

    Just checking in. I am just a bag of aches and pains. My right knee is hurting; I did not do anything in particular to it. I'm looking forward to going back home Thursday.

    Food intake has been more reasonable. I got in a bit of walking today, even with the knee.

    Missy - I saw an adorable puppy this morning - I think it was a husky? I don't know the snow-dog breeds at all really, but of course I thought of you and yours.

    Good evening,

    Lana good for you for getting steps in. I did a lot of walking around at church today - so I hit my goal and just a little more. It was the day to find out the Secret Pal was for each of us. The person I got was not there. I found out who mine was and she admitted she tried to fool me much of the year -- it worked.

    Food has been okay but not great, so I am glad I am keeping my walking goals.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning all~~

    The daily ten minutes of sun is now streaming into the window of my apartment. It's time to get outside no matter how cold it is.

    Sara - Big applause for you for achieving your walking goals! 🏆 Good for you!!

    Waves to all who stop by later on 👋🏻

    Good evening,

    Cookies will be made tonight. Freezing temps overnight for the next week. I have set up a bed that is warm enough, feel slightly like a bag lady as I am wearing so much but too bad.

    I have 500 steps to make my 5k which I will make sure it happens.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there. Stay warm

    Here we are at the middle of the week~~

    I am gathering and packing up for going home tomorrow, trying to take as little as possible. It saddens me how quickly a rolling carry-on bag can get heavy, which can be a bodily pain at the now-sprawling LaGuardia airport.

    Sara - Did you make cookies yesterday? Smart to use the oven when it's cold in the apartment. Big hugs.

    Waving to those who stop by today 🌴

    Good evening,

    Cookies made and handed out today. Leaving them in my house is a "no-no".

    Lana hope you get a lot of steps dealing with the airport. Runways are good for a long walk.

    Below freezing all week at night. I used to celebrate these days as it helped kill fleas that used to annoy my dog. So I will celebrate it for other people with dogs.....

    People are frazzled from the holiday stress. I am frazzled watching them. Will watch one of those sugary holiday movies.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    *** Thursday ***

    Good morning to all~~

    Sara - I don't know how you do it: baking cookies and them giving them all away! You are an angel 😇 for certain.

    I miss exchanging gifts with family (now passed on), but lordy I do not miss the frazzlement the shopping caused.

    And yes, I will have lots of steps in traveling today. I'm concerned about actually getting home. The weather map looks less than ideal 😜

    Good evening,

    Glad to make it through the week. It had been a crazy and long one. I have tomorrow off as I am getting my 2nd Shingles shot.

    Lady at work adopted her before unknown niece a couple of years ago, and the niece is one of the people who I gift things. She is young elementary school age - she got the rest of the bright pink tree ornaments about 7 of them- as she loves pink.

    Lana if I didnt gift the cookies, I would be wearing them. I love to bake but I hate to exercise that much. I hope you made it home safely.

    Luckily for me, my other hobby does not involve food - buying yarn for at least 2 baby blankets online tonight.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    What's better than Friday?

    Sara - how nice about the pink ornaments for the little girl!
    Good for you for gifting the cookies and making baby blankets. 💞

    It's time to hit the grocery stores.... and yes, I will buy myself a piece of cake for my birthday today. My mother would say that birthday cake has no calories at all 😋

    Good evening,

    Happy Birthday Lana!! It isnt the same without cake in some form, and I have gotten my own as well just to make sure I get some- no calories??? Wow I have to remember that for next year. I hope you are having a good Birthday. Its your choice for music at the Cabana Club and you get the Queen for a day Treatment - take advantage of it.

    TGIF - got my second Shingles shot. We shall see how it gets me tomorrow. I slept this afternoon- it was warm and toasty and I usually take naps so I just enjoyed it. I took whole day off as I saw my shrink in the am. She is continuing on with the Medical Group so I do not have to search for another one. Yay!!

    Went and bought yarn for new baby boy for good younger friend. It cost $50.00 I have the Walmart account so I dont pay for shipping. I got a good price for yarn. This young lady appreciates hand made things and so I got a color I know she likes and a bright blue. Waiting for it to get here is like watching water boil.

    I offered to go and walk the parking lot this afternoon as I was early to a dr apt - that concept would not have happened before this year - so Go Girl points to me. It was dashed and I got in for shot in minutes. I sense people come in and chicken out about shots.....so the lady who does it does not let them wait long.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Happy Saturday,

    It is very early for me. Luckily I am not terribly ill from vaccine. I cant seem to go back to sleep.

    If I wake up later and still feel okay, I am going walking. Since I have found the balance between my bad eating and exercise, my new goal is to walk more and tip the balance a little.

    Hope you are doing well Lana.

    Wishing all a good day. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning Sara~~

    I am glad that the after-effects of the shingles shot are not too awful.

    Good for you on the yarn and knitting projects.

    I need to get going - it's so easy to just sit at my desk, drink coffee, and surf.....

    Where did the sun go?

    Good morning all~~

    What a glorious day, weather wise. Yay.

    I have rediscovered a long-forgotten treat: pitted dates! They caught my eye in Trader Joe's, so I bought some. They are almost as wonderful as cookies, but probably a bit healthier. They are yummy, but I don't feel the need to overeat them, as I do with cookies.

    Tonight's dinner will be some pot roast, corn, and string beans. 😁

    Good evening,

    Made another batch of cookies - most are going in the freezer for a lunch/funeral for a lady at Church. A couple are going to coworkers - I misread the recipe ooops last time.

    Got almost 5k today which for a Sunday is amazing.

    Meatloaf, chicken nuggets with vegetables are this week's lunches.

    Lana pitted dates are in moderation a decent source of potassium. Trader Joes is such a great place I am lucky one is not near me. Enjoy.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Heavens to Betsy - it's Monday already!

    None of my ladies wanted to walk this morning in the freezing cold. I may go this afternoon when it is comfortably above freezing.

    Time to hard boil a bunch of eggs for the week. I need a break from scrambled eggs; I tend to embellish them more than necessary, which adds a lot of calories.....

    Waves to all who pop by today~~

  • Hi Lana! *wave*
    Happy Monday almost Tuesday!
    It's cold here too, not my favorite weather.
    I woke up this morning and must have eaten something my body didn't like yesterday because I felt like I got glutened. Been gf for 12 years. Finally felt better by the time we went for our weekly grocery shopping.
    My family and I did exercise by running the stairs today, it was fun and a lot of work!
