A Relaxing Weekend ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒผ

Despite being so busy, and a hiccup here and there, I think we really had a good weekend. Yesterday we played cards and did rebus puzzles. And I’ve gotten so much done in terms of exercise, commissions, and housework too. ๐Ÿ˜Š

The dishwasher broke down today. Well, it broke down a while ago, and wasn’t drying the dishes. Opening it up, and doing research, Christopher found the issues and came to the conclusion that we’ve reached a point where a fix does not make economic sense (this dishwasher has been fixed a few times by him) so, a new dishwasher it is.

We got super lucky, and managed to snag one for delivery tomorrow. With the upcoming party, we really needed it.

My t-rex Patriotic garden flag came in!

Here it is, installed:

With Christopher’s blessing, I also put this by the front window:

Unfortunately things have become such that overt displays of patriotism can cause people to assume that we hold a certain political leaning/viewpoints that we strongly disagree with. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ So I wanted to make it clear where we stand, regardless of all the USA flags.

That aside, I’ve been working on making the back porch prettier. The little gnome girl was a present from my mom:

I had one of these today while working on commissions, they’re pretty cute:

For dinner, Christopher obliged my rather selfish request and made me absolutely fantastic teriyaki turkey meatballs with rice (I think it was teriyaki, anyway… I made the rice, to help.) It was a great dinner!

Tomorrow I’ll be up at 6:30am again. Lots ‘n lots to do… ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Fitness Log For 5/16 ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting back to my old fitness logs, but I don’t want to fall off the wagon, so I’ve decided to make a “lite” version of my logs, concentrating on tracking my weight, calories burned, and water intake. I think if I make these last two things my focus, I’ll still get in shape without so much stress about what I eat (which I tend to be more careful with when I exercise anyway.)

I’ll be doing it this way for now, and possibly find a middle ground where I simply track all the food I eat (to remain aware of my choices) but not so much the calories.

CW: Weight tracking after the cut. Please do not proceed if you have an eating disorder and/or find posts of this sort triggering.
