Lots O' Good Stuff!

Good stuff #1: It's MONDAY!!! I know, for those of you who deem Mondays as the start of your work weeks, I am truely sorry. But look at it this way; when I am having the start of my work week, you'll be half way through with yours!
Good stuff #2: It is continuing to cool off here. I think today will be actually bearable. Maybe 67 at the highest temp. I am still so sorry for those of you who have to dig out. I could not do that and I honor you.
Good stuff #3: 2.2 pounds of me is missing! I am NOT going and looking for that part of me that has gone by the wayside. It can stay on the wayside. This week I do not know how I did that. I kind of went beserk eating things that should not have passed these lips. I think it was the Saturday and Sunday heavy weight lifting at work that did it. I cleaned receiving. (Imagine 100 foot rolls of welded wire fencing - they are not what you would call light)
Good stuff #4: Camera is back working. It did need a new battery and the batteries I put in it that I thought were fresh were most likely old. No body in this house seems to know that when batteries die, you do not bury their remains in the top drawer of the desk where the fresh batteries are. I got new batteries for it this morning and wa-la! PICTURES happen!
Good stuff #5: I got my first section of my cross stitch project done this morning. It is a tiny little 1.5" x 1.5 inch square, but it took me three evenings of stitching to get it done. Mind you though, I have little short spurts of time in between commuting people here and there to work on it. I like how it turned out. This square I did in a deep plum-ish color. At least I think it's plum-ish. The rest of the squares will be done in different rich jewel tones.

Please excuse the wrinkles. I am on to the next section which is the square at the top right side of this whole stitch.

And one more Good stuff:

Ziggy sleeping. Which these days is a GOOD thing, because he is turning into a little terror. The others dogs look at me as if to say, "Please! Can we have a timeout?!?"

Okay, that puppy is just about the cutest thing ever. I refuse to believe he ever ever ever does anything that isn't perfect and charming.

I still have more shoveling to do after our 15 or so inches of new snow, but we're finally out of the deep freeze, so I'm happy. As long as you stop talking about heat waves, that is!

Hey you! Again, remember me? You have so many good stuffs going on for your sweet self; it's an embarrassment of riches!!! :)

Good for you on the 2.2 lbs. lost. Now, just guess who found them...ME. BWAHAHA! That is awesome, my friend.

I also have been meaning to tell you that I love the new picture on your main page; brooding beautemousness! And Ziggy. I love Ziggy, too.

Wooo hooo Claudia! Congrats on loosing 2.2lbs, you're doing well so far! Keep in mind that slow and steady is the way to do this. The body really is a funny, funny thing, the weeks I expect to loose I don't and weeks I expect to gain I loose.

Just keep in mind not to deny yourself everything. Having a little of the things you love now and again is a good thing. Deprivation leads to failure!
