We are at 41′ out, cool for sure, but it is very refreshing. We actually get some frost and perhaps snow here in Tucson. Can’t wait, I really missed the seasons, so we will get some of that here. Sunny and cool. Perfect! We got the pool cleaned and covered for the winter. We did look into several options to heat it, but in all reality an above the ground pool is just not worthy of much! Sad, we couldn’t find any company that would come out and help us figure things out. I finally spoke to one man who was kind enough to give us his opinion on the heater situation, he had been in the pool business for over 50 years and said that the money for companies are in, in-ground pools. He advised to clean it, cover it and get some heater pads to float on the water next year or scrap it and get a hot tub! Well we are getting rid of the ole hot tub on the deck and getting a new one. Already have it picked out. SO that will be nice to sit in and soak in private on the deck. Looking forward to it.
Well I lost another 5.5 #’s this week, finally bringing me up to 34.5 # lost. I finally just got busy and paid closer attention to my portion control and got out all the measuring cups, tablespoons and food scale. It really does help to stay in check!!! So I reap the rewards of staying on the straight and narrow on the scale!! Yay. I also started the “step” program. I am getting in my steps each day, amazing how fast you can get to 3500. They add 300 a day until you get to 10K I guess, I am not sure I will ever get the 10K with my knee but I am going to try, never say never. I will stay on the straight and narrow again this week, and see what happens. I do know that my scale and there’s (WW) is 3#s difference, lol but I am going with the flow. I weigh less at home, and a little more there, its all good. LOL
Well the start of the holidays are just weeks away, we have been invited to a Thanksgiving dinner, we have remained friends with the previous owners of this house, nice couple, and they are have a very casual get together with family and friends. I think we are going to pass and end up at a restaurant, or I may even cook!! Who knows. I am hoping to see my brother and his wife next month. That would be fun.
So sad about all the fires in California! There are no words.
Happy Veterans Day to all, and thank you for your service !
Heres a couple pictures I took yesterday of the BBG in the gazebo and the perfect frame for a picture of the desert behind us.
