Sunday Slide

Sunday, January 25, 2015

I'm sorry that I didn't get to take any photos of the new post lamps yesterday. They look really nice. Now I have to go buy matching bug lights for all of them so that they match when they are on. I was really please with the way they turned out.

We worked like crazy all weekend long, but still managed to take about 20 minutes in the evening to watch the sun set behind the mountain. Yesterday it was well into the 80s, and I was almost too warm after putting up all the lamps. But what a wonderful day to be at the lake, enjoying the peace and calm, and watch the majesty of the day turn into dusk and then night.

I let the dogs out twice in the night/early morning today, and the thermometer on the deck said it was 62. It was warmer at night in Clearlake than it was any day in Sacramento! Today the high is only supposed to be 55. I can't get over how different the weather could be just a hundred miles apart.

The only real drawback to the weekend was the sinus infection that kept me from sleeping both nights. This morning I finally went down to the sofa because I could prop myself up a bit more to help the drainage. I think the infection is related to the tooth that needs the root canal, which I'm seeing the endodontist on Wednesday. I just hope that having the sinusitis doesn't delay the procedure. I'm not complaining! (much...)

So it's the start of a new week! What are you going to do differently to make a new #smallchange in your routine? I got a chin-up bar and push-up stands, and so I'm going to add some new strength training exercises to my workouts. I'm going to work on remembering to eat more fruits and vegetables every day, and not just the salad at dinner. The friends we saw yesterday afternoon when we were loading the truck with the stuff to bring back to Sacramento for the yard sale noticed that I'd lost weight and made a comment. Don't you know that THAT kept me motivated for another week!

If someone doesn't notice and pay you a compliment on your success, then give yourself one! Are your clothes looser? Do you feel healthier? Is your smile a bit wider because of the changes that you're making? Let me be the first to say you're looking and doing great! Keep up the good work!

Happy Sunday everyone!
