    challenge done!! I am planning steel cut oatmeal tomorrow. just had spinach today. had broccoli a couple days ago! I usually eat tuna at least weekly too :-) I love beans but didn't have a meal this week with them in it!

    I just got back from a nice nighttime walk & enjoyed the stars in the sky! such a clear sky tonight. we have had beautiful sunsets this week & another one tonight!! such bright oranges & pinks in the sky!!

    tonight was date night. the second half of our valentine's day celebration. we saw the Million Dollar Quartet musical at a local playhouse. it was set Dec 4, 1956 at the Sun Studio in Memphis. Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis & Carl Perkins were at the recording studio together. great talent & fun songs!

    day 2 Sarah!! moving right along on our post valentine's day pact!

    thanks Vivian & Kris for your encouragements!!

    thank you Vivian for the encouragement!! ♥

    Sarah today is day one of our pact!! :-) let's rock & roll!!

    taking my walk today was one way to take time away from technology. I was not talking on my phone like I see some walkers or texting!! I didn't even listen to music on my phone as I walked! I do enjoy looking as I walk. I look at the trees, snow, plants, people & dogs being walked! I met a yellow lab who was very friendly! I noticed the bark on some trees was eaten away (deer?). I also noticed the sumac clumps of seeds are a pretty red in the sun. I also saw how the snow with the sun at just the right angle glittered! I walked while the sun was setting & enjoyed all the glorious colors in the sky. the sky was sky blue & the clouds reflected orange, yellow & purplish shades! very pretty. lots of scenery to enjoy!

    the other way I took time away from technology was just reading a book!! I enjoyed the scenery in my bedroom, ha ha!!

      Did you get fresh snow? I like to be the passenger in a car so I can look at the scenery. Doesn't happen as often as I would like because I am the sole driver in the house.

    my chronic pain was better yesterday & I walked 40 mins. at once. I thought I would do that again today but divided it into 2 walks 20 mins each. I will try again tomorrow for a 3rd day unless my pain limits me. it's been good walking weather with warmer temps & no ice or snow on the trail!! I love it!

    thank you Vivian for the happy encouragement! :-)

    thank you Sarah for the pact invite!! ;-))

    I had a nice valentine's day with my husband. he made reservations at a nice restaurant. I had salmon on a bed of kale in a balsamic type sauce reduction (whatever that means! it was tasty) & had a taste of his succotash which I had never had. it was tasty too :-) took home red velvet cake as we were stuffed. I feel fortunate I have someone special to share the day with! ♥

    my pet care boss took me to meet another pair of cats I will care for in march. Lilly (same name as previous cat from last wknd) & Mitze. both nice cats! Mitze is a maine coon cat. they are so beautiful. Lilly is deaf but very aware of who is in the house & hangs out! my boss told me the coolest cat names she has come across were a Sinatra & Bogart in one household!

    I hope everyone had a great valentine's day!!

      Glad you are getting some cat care too! I am glad you had a nice date with your hubby. It sounds yummy! So, a reduction sauce just means it is simmered until it loses some of the water or liquid, so it is more syrupy. Usually it is a red wine reduction, like with Cabernet ...see more

      Diana the deaf cat Lilly doesn't respond to sign. a good idea to tell the owners but not sure if they would want to try it! yes it is hard with the fibro. I feel better if I can move but if I move too much I get more pain...

      Sarah, yes, a few cats are coming up for cat ...see more

    I always measure oil as I keep track of my calories & food intake on the app myfitnesspal. I have been doing this app for about 5 yrs & lost 30 lbs over that time. my husband's health insurance has an incentive to earn 30 points in this upcoming year so we can have reduced co pays. I was on the phone getting myfitnesspal app connected with their program. I can earn 5 points a month if I keep track of my exercise during that time!

    I have been working on my early "spring cleaning" or deep cleaning of the house. tonight I spent 2 hrs working on kitchen cupboards & going through cans of food for expired items. that was fun... (not really but necessary!)

    382 points I think it was Diana!! the DC fairies were generous!! yay! :-D

    thanks Beth for the encouragement! :-)

    I don't know if it is a local piece of art but one I always enjoy when I go to the library. it hangs suspended from the ceiling & looks like string art of all different colors. it is in a space with windows that are 2 stories tall & all the light that comes in just brightens up that space with the hanging art!! so cool with the 3D quality & airiness of the "string" art. I am not sure the material but it is one of my favorites!!

    there is another area of art by the walker art center that is all outdoor sculptures. they are renovating the outdoor space & I can't wait to see how it all turns out. I used to drive past it on my way to work when I worked!! the spoon & the cherry is a big hit & a Minneapolis favorite!

    I chose local art that is in places I have enjoyed viewing over the years for the challenge!

    today was colder. I missed the mid 40's for temps we had yesterday. it felt like a blustery march early spring day in the 30's today. I met a dog & his owner walking on the trail when I took my afternoon stroll. that dog I soon found out his name was Sully. his tail was wagging & he was a happy dog! the owner said they jogged for a bit & that his dog needed the exercise! Sully is a cute golden who is a bit overweight but sure liked meeting people on the trail. so sweet! goldens are one of my favorite breeds.

    Diana day 4 for us & time for those DC fairies to grant us our points tomorrow!!

    have a great week everyone!
