Day 16 of 84 - sorry for the absence

I didn't expect to be away from posting for so long.  Last week was pretty crazy.  We went north to my sister's place for an early Thanksgiving dinner.  Her daughter and 4 1/2 year old twin boys live with her and her son was able to make it up from K-W.

So picture this ... 5 full sized adults, 2 young boys, a Goldendoodle (part Golden Retriever, part Standard Poodle .. he's huge and looks like a great big stuffed animal), a Cavachon (part Bishon Frise, part King Charles Cavalier Spaniel ... he's just a little guy and absolutely adorable), a cockatiel, a Holland Lop bunny (absolutely adorable), all in about 1,200 sf ... we were all together in just the living room and kitchen ... tight fit.  But it was fun.

And I'm so proud to report that my sister had dropped 50 pounds since her surgery in June.  She looks awesome!  She's up and moving around and able to do so much more than she has in a long time.  It didn't cure her heart trouble, but it's certainly taken a lot of strain off of it.

We had amazing weather, stayed at a great little B&B 5 minutes away from my sister's place, had a great dinner (ate WAY too much even tho I didn't think I did), had a great breakfast (again, too much food), missed my Sunday and Monday workouts but I haven't eaten a lot since I got home.

I had planned on working in the garden all day today but we got a late start, it was cooler than anticipated and I have been doing laundry and ironing all day.

I had started writing a couple of posts but never got them finished so I'll be finishing a piece of our relationship with food for tomorrow's post ... I'll be back on track then.

In the meantime, have a great day ... eat well, keep moving and keep believing in yourself.
