Who Is Walkerlady?

My Photo
is originally from Minnesota, did 'time' in California, and is currently sentenced to doing a few years in Arkansas. :D
She's the "Lazy Quilter" who often doesn't take time to try to achieve perfection. She's "Walker Lady" who changed her lifestyle and lost over 100 pounds in the process! She wears the hats of a Quilter, Artist, Crafter, Musician, Life Coach, Wife, and Mom, all rolled up into one crazy eccentric woman!

You Can't Believe Anything These Days!

Recently one of the members of our weight loss support group brought in these measuring spoons. So what's the deal about them? Well, they are BOTH stamped as being one teaspoon. That is correct, each one is called a teaspoon!!!

I don't have much else to say for today. It has not been a very good week here. All will be well, eventually though.

For now, I just need to keep on walking on! I hope you do too.

Happy Thanksgiving...a few days late

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. Do you see our turkey on the meat and cheese plate below:
Good food, good friends, good weather, good times. Isn't that the way it is supposed to be? I think so.

Day Seven - The Happy Thanks-I-Can-MOVE-Giving Challenge

Exercise: Nice walk and then leaf raking.
I am grateful that my husband did the lion's share of the yard work today. We have nine mature oak trees and the leaves were thick! He was out there for HOURS!!! I am also grateful that my son did his science fair experiment today. Finally, I am grateful for the fantastic weather (well the wind was a bit much for leaf work!!!) and the leftover turkey hash we are having for supper made for an easy cooking day for me and it will be yummy!

From a week ago, I went out to the trail and they put rocks across the opening to the street to keep vehicles out. I wondered if they moved the two downed trees too.
They HAD!!! We walked all the way to the other end with no more trees blocking the path. At the other end they also put rocks up to keep vehicles out. It was wonderful to have the trail back!
Even Ziva approved.
She liked the rocks and even got up onto one of them.
Such a proud puppy!
To fulfill the Happy Thanks-I-Can-Move-Giving Challenge we need to donate stuff for a good cause. I have four full bags of clothing and household items that I no longer need. We will deliver them tomorrow morning!

It's been a fun challenge. I would do one like this again! ‪#‎TGChallenge‬
I hope you are all Walking-On and keeping your belts from having to be let out a few notches!

Day Six - The Happy Thanks-I-Can-MOVE-Giving Challenge

24 hours ago our first company arrived for Thanksgiving. We had great foods and wonderful conversations. We played several games of Farkle, a dice game. The day did not start well though. Ziva bit one of our smaller dogs, Tipsy, and drew blood. This morning I took him to the vet and he should be alright. We have antibiotics and pain meds for him. Poor little guy. :(

Exercise: A soul cleansing walk, even though I am dead tired today!
I am grateful for my youngest son today, as he turns 14! Happy Birthday kiddo!

Tomorrow is the last day of the challenge. It has been a fun distraction as well as a fun challenge. Thank you Roni, for organizing this all!

Day Five - The Happy Thanks-I-Can-MOVE-Giving Challenge

What a day! I am copping to having my exercise be all the walking I did today, in house. From the time I finished my second cup of coffee till after the last of the guests left, I only sat long enough to eat! lol
I am grateful for the company because it recalled years gone by of when my Mom did the Thanksgiving Feast. I have tears from the memories. They are good tears though. :)

Will walk-on a bit extra in the morning. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
