Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

Weight Loss Monday

Slow and steady. That’s me. Down .6 this week. I much prefer whole pounds but they add up. I’ve lost a total of 13.4 since January 5. When I put it that way, it doesn’t seem like much. But losses are always better than gains. It’s just coming off so slowly. 

Not much else to report. I’ve been super swamped at work. I have a giant project coming together. I’ve been working on it for awhile now…but mostly just in my mind. The past couple of weeks I’ve actually been doing it. I’m very proud of it and will be happy to share soon. 

The weatherman had said it was going to snow today. He said we were forecast 1-3″ but it would likely be less than an inch. We got nearly FIVE inches from 12:30 – 4:00. Heavy wet snow. And I waded through all 5″ in my bare legs getting in and out of my car. At least I had changed shoes this morning and left the sandals at home. Roads were treacherous. I’m truly sick of winter.

Spring – 58 days

It almost felt like spring today. Almost. Early spring. After freezing rain and ice and school delay.

But I will take it. Until the temps go back down.

Today I’m thankful for a few minutes of respite from the bitter cold.

Thanksgiving Project – The Countdown

I hate winter. No, I really hate winter. I don’t like the cold. I don’t like the ice and snow. I can’t stand the dead look of everything. I am so tired of the gray dreary days.

I thrive in the sunshine. I look forward to the grass greening, the trees budding out, the flowers blooming. Spring isn’t my favorite season though. I’m a summer girl. But spring is my gateway to summer. And it is the end of that nasty winter!

I do a countdown usually starting in January on how many days until spring. First it was 100+ days, then down to 60 days. Then it was 30 days. I can last one more month, right? Then I started thinking it was less than two weeks.

But today, it is down to TEN days until another winter will be behind me. I’m thankful that spring is near. I’m thankful we have had two sunny days in a row. Soon it will be flip flop weather!
