For me, there is work today, a neighborhood pot-luck picnic tomorrow, the Flower Shuttle and a birthday luncheon on Tuesday. Our chimney restoration is on hold at the moment; the brick mason's father is in Hospice, and mr. kenju told him to take off to be with his dad until the end. The guy who will repair the deck is coming Monday - and since he is one of my favorite people (and a very lazy blogger) I am looking forward to seeing him.
He and his lovely better half are due here for dinner soon, but with all the work I've been doing and all the repairs to the house, there hasn't been time. It won't be long now.....I hope.
The rest of the repairs will get done sometime, I guess. *sigh* (They will, won't they??!!)
This is the worst time of the year for me to gain weight; I am trying to avoid that, and attempting to steel myself against temptation. "How's that workin' for ya'", you ask? "Not much at all", I sigh. There is Halloween candy (which I am not buying) and birthday cake ( which I always eat, along with sumptuous feasts), then Thanksgiving and Christmas? How's a girl gonna stay the same? Most of my clothing is too small now - so I don't dare gain a pound. I can't afford to buy new clothing and when I try, I can't find anything I like. I do know how to cure that problem: walking. I think about it daily.....how nice it would be to walk the neighborhood as the leaves are changing and the crisp weather is bracing. Then I think about how nice it is at home with a good book or my computer - and the idea of a walk goes out the window. I'm hopeless!
