Today marks my 11th day without a cigarette.
I can't take too much credit for quitting- getting that second tooth pulled figured into it quite a bit. Ielaborated on how this came about in my journal 'Quitting' over at DA. Of course something has to give and the money I would have spent on cigarettes for this month went into a snack budget- I kind of overdid it but I think I'm a bit entitled for the first month and its certainly not all for my benefit- my husband has a sweet tooth as well!
I was talking with my sister on the phone today and she mentioned going to 'aquasize' with her friend. I thought about this all afternoon and concluded that there was no reason why I shouldn't take up swimming to loose weight. There is a pool only 20 minutes walk from home and it opens at 6:00am so it's not like I would have to feel self conscious with too many people around! I know if I don't exert myself more I will become painfully overweight so I made the resolve to go tomorrow.
This past weekend my husband and I drove out to Mission to explore the mountains but unfortunately the road that interested me hadn't been plowed so we probably only went a fifth of the way. One of those roads that the logging companies build and are open to the public "at your own risk". It was nice- lots of fresh air, clean mountain water, great views...just a bit nerve wracking with all the slimy slush and snow.
The sunsets and sunrises are prettier in the colder weather- at least when its not raining which is rare. Rarer still is to find a good place to get the shot I'm looking for but we did manage:
From Tretheway Street
Unfortunately, there were 2 specks of dust on my lens during the weekend shoot that I only became aware of once I uploaded the photos onto my computer. That would probably explain the focusing difficulties I had and consequently blurry photos. *sob*
I did clean all my lenses after that...
My last photo has a title that was inspired by all the house hunting I'm doing on line. :)
