In an effort to climb BACK up on the wagon, I went through the freezer and fridge yesterday, getting rid of everything on my "do not eat list" except the three remaining marshmallows. It would be a sin to throw those away!!
I spent the morning finishing up this quilt, whose squares are now all sewn together. I checked out the border material twice and read the instructions three times before tossing it all on the table. I just don't seem to be in "finishing" mode. Possibly it's because I only got 4 hours sleep. Sometimes those nightmares can be a little crazy.
Lucky for me, or maybe not because they spell work, my waterproof boots showed up yesterday. Yes, the inside is just as fluffy as the outside top and they are WARM city! They arrived just in time for the break in the weather so I could start washing the rig. I might as well be stylish in my grungiest jeans and torn t-shirt top.
I'm probably going to be sorry, but I did NOT climb up on the roof to clean off all the white gunk. It's just been too cold, windy and icy to take a chance.
One side done ... woohoo!! Not that it matters, because it rained again last night. I'm sure all my zebra stripes are back in place in the same spots I spent an hour cleaning. I'm definitely hoping to get it washed and waxed in Yuma this year.
Later in the afternoon I finished the back and the other side. The front is going to wait for a couple more days so I don't have to wash it twice, not that it matters because rain is predicted for the day I leave. At least I will have an excuse for how terribly dirty it is!!
I spent the rest of the day watching football. I tell you, it's an exciting life I lead!! Today I will try to figure out how to print those who's-who handouts (including pictures) for our little rally in Indio. If you hear me screaming in frustration, just cover your ears!!
Love your new boots! They would work well out here in Nevada! I know what you mean about getting back on the diet wagon. I went through the fridge too yesterday and froze some of the stuff that Ken likes, so he can have it down the road. Your rig is looking awesome!ReplyDelete
Thank you!!! It's really hard to diet since I'm a lover of all things sweet!!Delete
Never fear, Nancy. You will not be alone climbing up on that diet wagon. Lend us a hand getting up ok? A 90 day Keto challenge begins for us Jan. 1st. We don't know why but Bill's weight seems to be a yo-yo this fall/winter. he was doing so well.ReplyDelete
Love the boots!
Nice job on the rig, so pretty and shiny!
Oooh a Keto challenge. That sounds good! Truthfully, just cut out bread, potatoes, rice and sweets and you'll have it made!Delete
My diet wagon is out in the desert somewhere burnt to a crisp and rusted from the rain a couple of days ago. We started yesterday at Happy Hour with no snacks and Pat says as of New Years Day we will be on a strict eating style to get back on track. Safe driving and we hope to catch up with you soon.ReplyDelete
Hahahaha Bill ..... yup I know exactly of what you speak. The only way to fix it is to get rid of everything bad in your cupboards!!Delete
Everyone struggles at this time of year with their diets. No need to throw it out just use the word Moderation.ReplyDelete
Your Boots look like Eskimo Boots to keep your feet warm rather then dry.
Good job on the RV but like you said if you don't clean the top the steaks will be back.
Be Safe and Enjoy your travels.
It's about time.
I'm happy to report those boots kept me both warm AND dry!Delete
Nice boots. This morning my breakfast cooking made the smoke alarm go off. What's going on with gaining weight? For the last few years I have struggled to keep my weight at 100 pounds. This morning..,..103. I don't feel like my eating habits have changed. I think the air we are breathing is heavier and that makes us weigh more. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!ReplyDelete
Hahahaha Elva. l You may be right about the air!! It sure seems to be affecting me. I wouldn't care except it makes those jeans SO uncomfortable!Delete
Nice boots. Good luck with the dieting.ReplyDelete
I'm going to need all the luck I can muster!!Delete
Diets are a pain in the butt! Good luck. Love those boots. For a minute there I thought you were moving North to be with Eskimos. :)) For the price of those boots you could have had someone wash it for you.ReplyDelete
Nope ... not moving North ... I'm looking for warmer weather. The boots were actually the best deal ever, 75% off and only $40. Around here the only wash rack is in my back yard!Delete
