Viewing the Scenery

Afternoon trip to Smith Mountain to be intrepid explorers.

Smith Mountain is the one we're standing on. The West Elks and Mt. Lamborn are there covered in snow. Four mountain ranges in this photo.
He said, "Take a picture so you can read the words on my Frisbee." Okay.
They explored, played in the dirt, took pictures and video, and looked at clouds (there was something said about a flamingo standing on a frog's tongue?) I flew the kite. *grin

APU Minis

Everyone knows I collect miniatures. My APU friends were no exception. Sometimes I would get a little package in the mail just for fun and other times I would get one in a holiday swap box, but every time it was a surprise that someone remembered I love miniatures. Thank you for all the lovely surprises throughout the last 10 years. This is my APU legacy and the only thing about it that ever made me happy. The willingness to reach beyond the computer and treat me like a real person.

Resolution Deux

Finish an old WIP. I chose the start of a 10 year old tablet weaving for a guitar strap. See what I did there?

Resolution Numero Uno 2014

Pick up a new instrument. Check.

That's correct. I just got out the Takamine I never learned to play and jumped in fingers first.

From Morbidly Obese to Overweight in 12 Months

For the record I am currently maintaining at 177 lbs. 79 pounds down; 33 more to go. It took me an extra almost month to lose those next three pounds to bring my diagnosis down from "obese" to "overweight". Have never been so glad to be overweight in my life!!
