back in the swing-or should i say daily walk?

 Last week, living in the great northwest, I had the wonderful opportunity  of becoming snowbound. Now this is something I have experienced, having had 21/2 feet  of snow accumulate over a period of 4 days 2 years ago at Christmas time.  I knew to get out and make the purchases necessary for bsf  and did.  Then I got the bug, so I fortunately did not have to navigate my half hour drive to work. As a result, my daily walk w/ m2 bdff went by the way, unfortunately for them as well as me. we received 18inches of snow over a period of 4 days as the north eastern wind from Canada fought the southwest pineapple express. Nor'easter fought valiantly and looked like it may win, but the pineapple express gave a wallop of a punch(sorry for the pun!) and today I awakened to a completely thawed out hometown-let the walking begin! Dolly Madison, Cedric and I have just returned from a most delightful walk, although I must say I overdressed and had to unwrap my scarf and remove my gloves.Whom  you may be wondering are my best doggy friends forever? Cedric is my charming tri  pembroke welsh corgi 5yo and  Dolly Madison,  his, ne'r do well sissy,4 yo  brindle cardigan corgi.  How is your day? I hope all is well. I must say I did not look forward to weighing in as I had zero exercise for 7 days as well  as whe I am sick I have a funny way of thinking if I just eat the right thing, I'll feel better. Oh well. I was up 0.6lb., but hey-I faced the dragon and that 0.6 will be gone next week!


  1. Glad to hear you are feeling better, and that your snow has melted. we have snow here, but I don't think it will be going anytime soon.

    I also used to feel like I needed to eat 'whatever i want' to feel better while sick, but now I know that I will feel better if I continue to take care of myself. It's taken a LONG time to get there, you will too! .6 isn't too bad, actually!

  2. Hi Deborah, Dawn gave me your new blog address. Welcome to blogging. I added you to my list and will try to get some people over here for you. It has been raining over here - but I do miss the snow at times, then its gone. LOL
    Don't worry about the .6 you have seen my weight loss progress and it takes time. Have a great day :-)

  3. Hi Deborah! Found you through Rosie's blog. The support here in the blogging community has been wonderful. You'll do great!
