Weekend wrap-up and FMM:

I've been working on a post about the calorie discussion for a few days now. I've about given up on it though because I've been having some trouble with getting a picture (graph) I wanted to share to save so I can upload it. So frustrating when things don't work the way you want them to. I won't have time to work on the post for another few days so we'll see if it gets done at this point.

This weekend was the last weekend of hubs three week vacation.  We spent Saturday with his parents who traveled up here to see us (the grandkids really) and yesterday we ran errands. We finished up the weekend with family movie night. Back to the grind today. Not yet sure how I'm feeling about it. Was great having hubs home with me for three weeks. We (he) got a number of things done around the house yet there were other things that are still on the to-do list. Although, does that list ever really go away?

I'm playing along with Kenlie's FMM today. Has been while, thought it might be fun to join in again.

 Almost Spring

1. What do you love most about Spring?  I love the melting snow, the longer days, and the first blooms to peak through the ground. 
2. If you’re lucky enough to have a Spring Break, what will you do to enjoy it? No spring break here. Too old. 
3. What is your favorite flower? Lilacs!  
4. Do you have a garden?  If so, what do you grow?  I have a garden in my yard. Is it my garden though? No. My father gardens. He grows all sorts of flowers and vegetables. I didn't inherit the green thumb. 
5. Share one thing that you hope to accomplish during Spring.  My goal right now is to continue on with the weight loss. It's the only thing I have in my sights. I am more focused than ever and everything else is just background noise. 
6. Do you do Spring cleaning?  Yes. I'm participating in a mother's club yard sale next month and then we plan on having our own home yard sale to get rid of everything else that's laying around. All this yard sale prep is helping with getting everything cleaned and organized. 
7. What is your weather *really* like right now? {Just b/c it’s almost Spring, doesn’t mean that it feels like it for some of you.}  It was warmer over the weekend (mid 40's to 50) but this morning is very cold. 
8. Share one photo that you’ve taken during the month of March.   I haven't taken many. Just from bowling the other day with the grandparents. The camera is still in the car. 
9. What’s your favorite thing to do on a sunny afternoon?  It's sunny today. Cold though. When it's sunny and warmer, I love being outside taking in the sunshine and breathing the fresh air. On days like today though, I just like driving around thinking about spring and summer. 
10. If you could spend the day doing anything in your city, what would you do?  Harbor Cruise. I love being on the water. 

I hope you'll play along too! 


  1. Just stopping by from FMM ... Loads of luck with the weight loss, you seem very focused.

  2. You're dedicated with the yard sale! I want stuff gone quick, so I'll just donate it. Granted you'll have $$ in your hand a lot quicker than me!

    I can't wait to drive around with the windows down & radio cranked!
