1. Yesterday I had one of those thrifting moments that I have dreamed about. I found my own lovely globe for $1.75. There was a $10.00 minimum for credit cards, so I picked up a side table that needs a little TLC. I am excited to see what will work going forward. The top has some paint stains, so if they don't come off with sanding I will have to paint it.
2. My workouts have all gone really well this week. I have this whole post about women lifting heavy weights floating around in my head, but I haven't actually written anything. To summarize what I will eventually write; I have never seen such improvement in my physical health since I started doing the Starting Strength workouts. I am stronger, feel better, and have lost weight. I have been doing the the four exercises at least three times a week, supplemented with yoga and zumba.
4. I got a pallet from behind the PX. They have giant stacks of them back there, and the lovely woman at customer service said I was welcome to take one. I am thinking that I will break it down and then use the wood to create something like this.
5. I love spending evenings with my husband. He has been home a little earlier this week, and we have been working our way through the early James Bond movies. It has been really fun although he tends to fall asleep part way through.
