Woo Hoo Wednesday

No weigh in while we're on holidays. Not because I don't want to. I don't have a scale here. Pretty sure I'm going to come back with at least a couple extra pounds. Too many alcoholic beverages happen when we're down here. Seriously, I drink more in a couple weeks here than I do the whole rest of the year at home. Ah well. It is what it is.

There is a lady here who hosts a Stitch and B*tch in her home. I know lots of groups call themselves by that name but I really don't care for it. It sounds so negative. Luckily, they seemed a nice lot and I didn't hear any b*tching.

Anyways, this group collects the cancer caps I've been working on so I took them over. Unfortunately, I'm not able to post pics.

Blogger still isn't playing nice with IE so I can only post pictures using Chrome. I'm using our laptop and Chrome won't let me sign in unless I provide a mobile phone number. Like that's going to happen...hahahaha!!! I have no issues when I use our desktop. Stupid technology.

Another Woo Hoo is that Grampa didn't get any of my sick germs. We're both happy about that.

Anyways, sorry about the lack of photos. I'll post them when we get back in a couple weeks.

Woo Hoo Wednesday

Weigh-in...I'm down 2.5 pounds and a couple of inches. That makes me 16.5 pounds lighter and 8 inches smaller since the New Year. Yay!!!

It wasn't a very productive week but I got hit with the flu last week and I've had packing to do and arrangements to take care of before we leave this afternoon for our holiday. Still, I managed to get 11 more squares done.

Had to take the pictures on the couch because my suitcase is all sprawled out on the coffee table.

Touch wood, Grampa hasn't picked up my sick germs. Yet. Hopefully he doesn't at all.

Tomorrow night, we'll be at our condo in Mexico, far away from the cold and the snow. Woo Hoo!!!

Saturday Morning Mash-up

Just a few random things today.

One year from today, Grampa retires. He can't wait. He's worked for the same company for 34 years and, while the pay provides us a decent lifestyle and he'll have a fantastic pension, he's getting tired of the bureaucracy of working for a large corporation.

Today's temps. Dear God! If March coming in like a lion means going out like a lamb, spring should be downright tropical! Temps this morning, as I write, are -38C/-36F with a windchill factor of -47C/-53F. Winter has been very cruel to Canada this year. I'm looking very forward to snowbirding in Mexico after Grampa retires.

Guess who woke up to a massive cold sore bump this morning? I have this fantastic cream called Zovirax that works wonders on cold sores, if you catch them early enough. I felt the tingle last night, but, against my better judgement, ignored it. It's just a bump this morning and I'm hoping I've gotten after it soon enough to prevent it from becoming unsightly.

And I think I might have pink eye. I'm going to keep an eye on it (no pun to see what happens. But geez Louise. What else can happen. At least my kidneys don't hurt like they did yesterday. Last night I actually packed up a crocheting bag in case I had to call one of the kids to take me to the hospital this morning. Can't let downtime go to waste.

That's about it for now. Y'all have a great day!
