Good morning everyone... the days are getting shorter and it's still dark outside at 6:15 am as I begin to write this, so I can't tell what kind of day it's going to be... we'll assume it's going to be hot again, since they've said we aren't supposed to have a cooldown until around the end of October.
There's not been a lot going on this past week, so it's pretty quiet. My neighbors did return from Oregon, but they're only going to be here for this month, then they'll be going back again. They'll be back in January for the rest of the winter, though.
Other than that, I had a funeral to go to on Friday, which is nothing we ever care to do. It was a man that I'd worked for at one time that passed away. He'd had cancer for some time so it wasn't unexpected, yet death is never fully unexpected.
In the process of going to the funeral, I had some trouble with our van. I ended up calling my husband, who came to see if he could tell what was wrong with it. It was an oil issue - the oil light kept coming on when I stopped at stop lights. He drove the van home and I drove the pickup behind. Of course, the van never missed a beat the whole 20 miles home so he couldn't tell anything and of course, he thought I was having pipe dreams...lol Yesterday, however, we went out to do some errands and it did mess up while he was driving, so, at least, he knew I hadn't been imagining an issue. :-) He did some research and will replace the oils sending unit today to see if that fixes the issue... The van does have a lot of miles so I suppose it's time to start having issues with it and heaven forbid we get a different one - his philosophy, not mine. :-)
Anyway, since my neighbor got back on Tues evening, we've been walking - well, I've been walking every day previously, but not nearly as far. We're doing well - in fact, I'm getting ready to leave the house as soon as I finish this post. I've also done quite well with eating, but in spite of the added exercise and eating well, I've only lost 0.4 lbs... not much. I suppose I could say I'm building muscles, which are denser than fat so they take up less space - which is true because my pants are getting loser in the butt and legs, but for some reason, I can't dislodge any of the upper belly. I guess walking isn't the best exercise for that even though I've been told that walking is good for losing weight all over...
I'm off to get ready for a 2.5-mile walk and it's still not daylight yet, but it will be close by the time I leave in about 30 minutes...
So - that's me... What about you? What's going on in your world and how have you done this week?
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
