Yet another Extreme Cold Warning today. Not the way I like to start the week but I think and I hope this is the last extreme cold warning for this winter. Please don't hold me to this.
Last week a number of people noticed I didn't weigh in. I couldn't face it, so I didn't. This week though I forced myself to get on the scales. It was needed as I could feel my diet moving to a less healthy zone. Anyway it was good news, I'm down another two pounds and have now broken the 200lb mark. It's a boost to my moral. It gives me incentive to keep plugging away at this journey.
I let the horses stay in the barn this morning. I will let them out for noon sun while I do stalls. They are fed up with this weather as well. I can tell as there is no funny business about coming back into the barn these days. I open the gate to their paddock and they trot into their stalls without any cursing or swearing from me. If the weather forecast holds true for next week I'll have to keep a bag of mints in my pocket in order to get a halter over Rolo's giraffe high head.
I've started a fox painting, I can't figure out if I'm pleased with it or not yet. It's still a little Grandma Moses for me right now. Not that there's anything wrong with Grandma Moses...but I really feel I should make my own path. It's a good afternoon to get some work done on that, photos to come.
