Liz is the winner of the book! Congratulations! You all will just have to take my word for it. I did it exactly like last time, and Noah was most anxious to pick a piece of paper out of the bowl. Email me your address, Liz, and I might even get it in the mail tomorrow! Liz asked about the quilt on the wall in the last blog entry, and I looked up the blog where I showed close-ups of that quilt (you can click on each picture and get an even closer look.)
My blog accountability partner and I have been having fun emailing each other. Part commiseration, part confession, part encouragement. Just plain fun. Today Jill told me about joining the President’s Fitness Challenge. Of course I had to check it out. I am well on my way towards winning a bronze medal with 330 points today (out of 40,000 needed LOL) Of course, I am really looking to win the gold. Because that reminds me of one of my all-time favorite movie scenes, where Cruella de Ville is in the back of the paddywagon with her three goons, and she says
“Congratulations! You three have just won the Gold, Silver, and Bronze in the Morons Olympics.”
And the stupidest guy says,
“Wh-wh-who won the gold?”
Hee hee. That line cracks me up every time. Probably especially since my ten year old niece could imitate that guy perfectly.
Anyway, I got a little off-topic. Check out that President’s Challenge site. Its kind of fun, and they have a real easy activity tracker, where you get points for whatever kind of activity you do, at whatever level you do it at. I think it’ll be fun to keep track of my activity like this, and likely will encourage me to do a little extra. Anyone want to join me and Jill? My question is, do they re-set your points at the end of the year? Because then we are four months behind the super achievers that started January 1.
No pictures today. I had a good day, with a little de-cluttering (my desk is cleared off!) and a little quilting, some laundry and dishes, and two walks with the dogs. And my food was as in control today as yesterday was out of control. Sigh. Moving on…
