Was reminded of this whilst reading Pedidoc's journal, but with the present concern over Felix, didn't feel it was the right place/time to post, so here it is, stuck in mine:
Middlest had her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck when she was born. Plenty of length, though, so it didn't cause her any issues. I was standing to deliver, and as she came out my midwife turned her to 'unwrap' the cord, so my first sight of Middlest was seeing her somersault between my legs.
This made me laugh! Thank you, I needed that.
Starting wt: 198, Goal: 135, Current with PB: 165
Started at a size 16 down to loose 10
With PB my asthma has improved, low back pain is gone, & I've got more energy
nothing better than freshly dried jeans that are loose! congrats.
My Honey is on his way to Dallas this morning. On his way out he debated on taking a rain jacket. I was like seriously it takes up no space and well Hurricane Bill. the took the saddest excuse he has for a rain jacket, he will end up staying inside for the whole conference I am sure.
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain."
Breakfast was leftover Korean ground beef and cabbage, and dinner will be out at a steak place. In-between, there is some ground beef and a lamb chop that need to be eaten or frozen today.
For vegetables: mushrooms, beans*, lettuce*, peppers*, half a tomato.
...Just went burrowing in the fridge to check on the vegetable situation and found a chicken thigh with paleo barbeque sauce. I think that lamb chop is going to have to be frozen. There"s no way I can manage five meals today.
No rain today, so I'm going to work in the garden in my scanties to get some sun on my skin. Will put on more clothes before I do the edging in the front yard. It was very windy yesterday, from Hurricane Bill's edges, so I am expecting to have to do some picking up.
Somewhat apprehensive about how we will handle the fasting while my mother-in-law is visiting. She did not like having to eat on her own last time.
The denim rug is sailing along. Hoping to hit the halfway point today.
Still painting the cabinet doors in the guest/sewing room. They are so finicky, and I can always think of something else to do. *hanging head in shame*
Fasting today, and planning to get a lot of stuff down around the house, garden, and yard.
One of the more exciting events is picking up the sofa and chaise I found at the thrift store yesterday. A friend with a truck is going to give me a hand. The chaise is upholstered in a red and gold tapestry. The sofa is cream leather. I have already moved out the green chair that was no longer bringing joy, and after I unpack the green storage ottoman, it is leaving, too. With this swap, the color scheme in our livingroom will switch from dark to light.
One of the less exciting things is figuring out how to reload the weedwhacker. I always worry that somehow the cord will uncoil at the speed of light, and whack me in the face. Completely groundless, I'm sure. (99% sure.)
