Today Was a Better Day...

Hope that all of you are safe after yesterdays weather through the mid to eastern US. We had a prediction of sever storms with hail and possibly tornadoes but all we got was a ten minute horrible storm and high winds, gusting to approximately 50 mph. I would love to have an anemometer to actually measure our winds sometimes but they are way too expensive. Luckily the power didn't go off this time around. I think it's because I am playing boyscout. I'm always prepared when I hear a prediction like that with extra water drawn and all the candles in the middle of the dining room table ready to light.

Hopped on the scales this morning for the first time in a couple of weeks and have lost another pound. Now this kind of maintenance I can handle. It makes me feel really good to know that I have formed so many new healthy eating habits. The real test will be this summer when I have company a lot, which means eating out some, and when corn on the cob is in season. I could easily eat a dozen ears at one setting when it's fresh out of the garden.

I've started crocheting something different this week. I'm making fashion scarves. They are about 2.5 to 3 inches wide and 55-65 inches long in varying patterns and colors. They are really fun to make. Here's a picture of three that I have finished. They are made from a soft shiny cotton. Will post one on a model (me) when I decide to put on something other than jammies. I did order more sock yarn when I ordered the yarn for these so I'm still into the socks too. Just have something else to work on so I can switch off now and then and not get too bored.
Later y'all.

Way to go on the 1 lb. loss. I think those scarfs are just beautiful. The colors are great. Have a good evening.

Congrats on the loss after fussing a few days back about not doing well food wise. Love the scarves. If I could call my Mama I would, she died on Feb 23rd and I always get in a funk this time of year that lasts through March 4th, her birthday. I can't even relate to missing kids, I wish I could. It must be very sad. Maybe they will make it to see you soon when the weather is nice. Hey, how about the satelite people. Did that get resolved? Sorry, I've gotten behind on reading and commenting. Thanks for understanding.

Very cute scarves. Sounds like you are feeling a little better today. I was just getting ready to post something new and I noticed you never read (commented) on the little pink purse. You are one of my faithful commenters, so I missed you (o:

Hey, it is me Grammy. I have no idea how it decided to call me rich. That is my hubbies name and we share a hotmail address. I am so confused. Sorry.

Woo-hoo! Another pound gone!

Glad the storm was brief. We had wind here, but that's about all.

The scarves are pretty! I wish I could wear a scarf without feeling awkward. They look so cute on other people.

Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

I wish I knew how to crochet. I was taught how to knit sortof, but I can only make long rectangles that never can come off of the needles. I don't really know how to finish!

Great colors.

And way to go on the maintenance pound!

Cute scarfs! I need to get my knitting out.
