Last time my husband and I went away I wrote a post in the car and so I thought I would do another one. We are driving along, listening to Neil Diamond. Does anyone not like Neil Diamond?
It is my annual Spring Fling. Every Spring I get rid of things I no longer need, want or use. Things that no longer serve a purpose get either donated, recycled or thrown out. My goal is ten items everyday for ten days. So far I have a lot of clothes. I’ve lost weight and only a few pair of pants still fit. Because I’m cheap, I don’t want to buy new clothes until I hit my goal weight but it’s starting to feel like I a never going to get to my goal weight. It’s only 14 more pounds but there has been almost no shift since January. My commitment is to do it sensibly so I won’t do anything drastic or unhealthy to get there. I have seen it over and over in my weight loss support group. Losing huge amounts of weight in short periods of time only to put it back on. One lady lost 160 pounds using some type of supplement. As soon as she stopped taking it she put on 36 pounds in a month. Another member has cut calories to 800 a day. It is almost to impossible to maintain that.
Here is this. Last year we put out Mason bee tubes. 🐝 The bees gather mud, lay two eggs in each section then fill the rest of the tube with more mud. After that, they die. Here are the tubes and the house the tubes go in.
We start our house painting next week. The colours have been chosen and the painter booked. I’m not sure how this is going to play out because I have a latex allergy. It should be okay as long as I don’t touch the paint and not be in the same room. And I have an Epi-pen. And I live close to a hospital. The night before I will take antihistamines.
We are in the middle of nowhere right now and I have to go to the bathroom. Story of my life.
