These next three weeks are, on average, the coldest weeks of the year. I’m glad to see them come. I love the snug as a bug in a rug feeling of very cold days, work I love and a home place to do it.
Weighed in this morning. My BMI is now 25.1 and my blood sugar is 98. I’ll continue on with the nutrisystem at least for the rest of this month, then I’ll have to have a good maintenance plan in place because I will head off for the Dwelling in the Woods, then 3 weeks in Hawai’i. Hawai’i should be ok because the fish, fruit and vegetable type menu is common there. It would not be the same if we were headed to, say, England or Austria. I feel good about this effort so far. The challenge now will be a healthy long term eating plan, one I strayed from too far for too long.
Still no joy on the sound system. I had the DVD player sending signals through the five speaker set up, so I know I have them connected and working. When I exchanged the Toshiba HD DVD player for a Panasonic Blu-Ray player, however, I eliminated the sound success I had made. Since I won’t get the Blu-Ray until next week, I don’t know yet whether I can convince it to communicate with the speakers. I know, right now, that the coaxial cable I got to connect the DVR/HD box to the receiver did not produce instant results. Sigh. I may have to talk with the folks at Ultimate when I go in to pick up the Blu-Ray. This is part of the learning curve, less steep now than when I opened the first box, but steep enough to block my vision so far.
Today is more work on the Faery Tale and garden planning. This is the work I love.t
