Tale Of Two Scales

I figure if I weighed in twice weekly. Friday on my home scale and weigh in at 220 pounds. Had Easter dinner and stuck to plan. But weigh in at T.O.P.S this morning and there scale said I was at 222.75.
I will leave the math up to all of you.
One thing I notice on my eating Monday I seem to ate on the salty side.
I believe the only day I will possible having any sweet will be next Saturday the 22. Murphy and I will be going to his cousin Harold Memorial service, and usual all the memorial service I've gone to they have something to eat.

April 7, 2017
Harold George , 70, died February 8, 2017, in New Albany, Indiana. He attended school in Bonners Ferry until his senior year, when he moved to Coeur d'Alene to join his family. He was a member of the United States Air Force National Guard. He worked at Kaiser Aluminum Trentwood until illness forced his retirement. He was a member of the United Steelworkers of America Local 338.

Harold is survived by his wife, XXX of New Albany, Indiana, and her three children and grandchildren; his children XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, and XXX, his 10 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is also survived by his mother, XXX, his sisters, XXX and XXX and his brother, XXX and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin  Sr, his brother, Marvin Jr, and granddaughter Kelli.

Now my husband is oldest first cousin on his dad side living.

One more quilting class. I can say now I made a quilt. Not quite still have to put on the binding. But I feel I gain enough knowledge that I can do a basic block quilt.
I will be going to the next session which I believe starts in October.
Slowly still working on the locker hook rug.

Now it look like Liz will be back possible Saturday the 29th. At first she was planning to be back on the 12th and she decided to stay down for Easter and return on the 20th.
But now she considering staying longer. I believe she now look at the 29th or 30th.
One good thing she got hold of the office that handle her subsidizing housing and change her appointment form the 25th til May 3rd. Which usual she just doesn't take care of daily life business.
But this time she did.
Now the only thing is, if she doesn't get service in a 30 day peroid. There is a good chance she could loose it.
I know there three service she hasn't had sense she left. Unless the other two is billing the state and that would be fraud.
Now talking about fraud I should tell what my friend LaWalla and the mess she in. I shake my head because I can't believe what sort of mess people get there self in.

Add a few more coffee pals and this time I'm add DAISY link for her teeth cleaning. I match all donation up to $50.
I'm slowly writing to pen pals who wrote to me resently. I got an old journal with wisdom saying and pretty flowers about it. Which is making great writing paper.

Coffee is on



  1. You do know that it isn't required to eat at the family gathering after the services. You can just have a cup of coffee or tea to be sociable.
    How are you going to quilt the quilt or is it done as you go? I liked to hand quilt, but my hands got too sore.

  2. Well, I hope Liz is having a nice visit, anyway.

  3. Sorry to hear about your cousin. Hugs and warm wishes to you and the family.

    Like the family history! Condolences for the lost one. ... yes folk do get themselves into a bind at times! YAM xx

  5. Wow, big family you have there! Always sad when someone goes...

  6. So sorry for your loss.
    We lived in Lafayette many years ago.

  7. Sorry for your loss.
    Was interesting about your family history.

    Take Care

    All the best Jan

  8. Sorry for you loss.

    It would be interesting to see if the scales remain inconsistent. (I think the one at home is more right!)

  9. If you eat mostly salty food, possibly your body is holding a little more water than usual, that might account for the extra three pounds at the weigh-in.
    Nice to hear the quilt is almost done. I used to wish I could make things like that, now I'm just happy to see the work of others.

  10. Sorry for the death in your family. I hope we will get to see the finished quilt.
