Wednesday plans

My cellphone says it's 37 degrees at home. Here it is warmer and getting even warmer as the morning progresses because the sun is shining. Yes, it was so nice yesterday and again today is to be sunny and even warmer. It got up to about 59 degrees yesterday, which to some people is cold. To use it is wonderful. We are really enjoying visiting our family. We've done a little shopping and lots of laughing. Today I am going to do a bit of laundry and show my SIL how to make the pillowcases I made. She found some really cute fabric at Walmart the other day when we were there. The Walmart here has a much nicer fabric department than our Walmart does. It should be a fun day. I don't know what my hubby is going to do though. Her hubby has golfing planned. I am sure Bob will find plenty to do. In fact his sister has a list of things she needs him to do. Her hubby isn't very handy around the house. She usually does most of the things but some she can't handle so Bob does them when he is in town. Yesterday she went to the doctor and he gave her the okay to start walking again. She is a little afraid of letting go and walking after 6 weeks of sitting down. So she is using a walker. I am hoping she will only need it for a day or two.

On Friday we are going south and meeting up with one of my brothers and his wife for a couple of days. They are full time rv'ers and he works in an RV park. He is working both days so we'll go shopping or maybe just relax in our RV until he gets off and then catch up with him. Back in September my other two brothers and their wives came to our house for a week and we had a great time reminiscing and laughing and just being together. This brother, my youngest, wasn't able to make it due to his job so I am looking forward to seeing him. It's been two years since we've seen each other.

I walked yesterday morning in the sunshine and it felt so good. I am not sure how far I walked but I walked at a pretty good pace and went around a huge block. It took me 30 minutes. I am going to walk again in a little while.

Monday, Monday

Well, it's the first Monday of 2011. The holidays are all behind us and our futures look bright. Happy New Year to you all. I appreciate all the nice comments you have made on my blog. I feel like I have lots of friends I can share with and confide in on here. So it's back to getting fit for me and no more empty calories. Fortunately, I have still been getting my workouts in.

A couple of days after Christmas we loaded up our motorhome and our cat and dog and headed south. We are going to visit family we haven't seen in a while. Since we left home 7 days ago we've only seen one day of sunshine. In fact the weather has been nicer at home than in "sunny" California. We are in San Luis Obispo now visiting SIL and BIL. It's just starting to get light in the sky and from what I can see there aren't any clouds. Yippee!! We spent New Years Day with the family and had a nice time. Yesterday we did a little shopping and went to a Thai restaurant near here. It was very good. I had a chicken and veggie stir-fry and boy was that yummy. This morning I am going to the YMCA here to get in my workout. I haven't worked out since the day after we left home because it's been raining and I didn't want to go walking in the rain.
Chloe, our pooch has been limping for a few days on her front right leg. From time to time she injures it jumping down off furniture and I didn't bring her medicine (an anti-inflammatory) so the poor thing is just feeling awful. I may take her to a vet today if she doesn't show signs of improvement.
I don't know what is on our agenda for today but whatever it is I think the sun will be shining. That is a good thing. I heard on the news last night that it snowed in Southern California in places that never get snow. Lots of school closures so the kids will be loving it. Especially since today was the first day back to school after the Christmas break.
I have been watching what I eat and am feeling much better than I did in my last post. Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last week while on the road and we went to dinner and I had a pistachio crusted salmon dish. Oh, that was so good.
I brought my little Singer Featherweight sewing machine and some quilting projects to work on while we are traveling. So far I haven't taken them out though. Well, I am going to dress and go to the Y now. Have a good day all.
