Sunday 3/5
A little over a mile walked. Some more gardening but mostly just watering. No real cleaning.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Monday 3/5
A mile and 3/4 walked. More gardening. Laundry day. This, to no one's surprise, upset hubby's cat who had gotten used to me delaying laundry until it was an all day affair. :)

Tuesday 5/5
A little over three miles walked. A lot of cleaning done as hubby wanted me to double check under the sofas for my phone... Still missing... Some gardening done but not much as, once again, my green beans have run out of climbing room and I can no longer add height without being unable to tend to them without potentially needing a stepladder. They're about 8' off the ground as is now. Got my front yard trimmed and mowed, though I still need to clip the hedges.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Wednesday 5/5
Went to the Farmer's Market! There was an inner city summer camp group who had an outing with coupons specifically so they could spend them at the Market at most of the stands. They nearly cleared out the stand that had fresh strawberries. ^.^  A friend brought over zucchini and cucumbers from his wife's garden so we have "salad and pickles for days" as Youngest said repeatedly. Almost three miles walked.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Thursday 3/5
Almost two and a half miles walked. A lot of gardening done. I decided I had enough energy to attempt starting some filler seed near where I'm trying to drive out the Creeping Jenny so I hand tilled that after turning over my compost. I had to buy more soy milk for hubby so I stopped at the garden center for more bits and bobs for my succulent fairy gardens inside. It took going to an organic-centric grocer to find the pepermint oil I need for my "make the fruit unlikeable to birds/pests/etc" spray. Peppermint, lemon juice, and water sprayed directly on the fruit leads to one or two experimental pecks and then they leave them alone! More fruit for me. Although... I do have to apply it twice daily for best results...  ^^;  On the downer side, during our morning tour of the edibles Youngest noted that she couldn't find the peach. We searched for a litle but it hadn't fallen anywhere around it (kinda obvious because I made sure to put a proper barrier to prevent casual mishaps like that) so I surmised that someone must have stolen our only peach of the year. I did find it later, before the ants managed to get to it, and salvaged what I could as the culprit had taken only a couple of big bites where it had been prettiest and tossed the remainder about 35' away in my lawn. So we did get to sample our first peach but I'm still angry at that unknown thief. >_<

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I'm starting to be a little more lenient on some of these days where I pick fresh from the garden and count those towards Market days. Because the whole point to me going to Market is to get locally grown, mostly organic (even without the labelling) food.
Creatively cute and proud of it!  Have a very good day, Guest!  ^.^

So I got on the band wagon of knitting...yup broke my needles. I got this pack of metal needles. They have a connecting wire that connects the needles. I love it...but after awhile of knitting...and it's about several months of daily knitting...a part near the connecting joint breaks. Basically I am bending and rebending metal..so they break. It's sad and frustrating. I have told the company...but replacement wire is $2.00.....the pregnancy fatigued has really gotten to me. I did talk to the doctor, but they are not concerned. I do believe that the stress of pregnancy is causing heart issues...i told them that and they over looked it...said I was fine. I don't feel very comforting.

But I have changed my mind. I put the point system in place to help evaluate your progress, and me to calculate for a prize winner....well I changed my mind. I want to give you all something. Being on this journey with has been wonderful. I was able to cry, cheer, improve, grow, and bond with you. I want to do this for you. All you have to do is send me a PM.
Prize Options
1. I can knit you a yarn star, from coaster size to head cover on a chair size (will get pictures soon) any color of your choice. They take me a day to do. Super easy and light on shipping.
2. Discount on any knitting project. My trade has pictures of my work. You may also trade the remaining cost.
3. Discount on any of my wings or a custom design. Pictures are in my trades.

My trade link is below this post. Please PM with your choice:) thank You for letting me do this.

That's really nice of you Crowing_Glory 13. :) I'm still doing healthy pony but realized I didn't post much here. I had a stressful week but I am still walking most days and have been getting extra steps almost every day, I will try to do better about keeping track and posting.

Sorry to hear about the wire on your needles, CG.  That's why I don't use that type anymore.  It is just so frustrating!  You would think they would stand up to normal use which for many knitters is daily use.  I'll have to give some thought to which prize option I am up for- it is a big decision.  Does that mean we shouldn't be evaluating our days with points anymore?  I'll keep doing it until you tell me to knock it off!

Oh no keep evaluating! That way I can see the progress. I might send bonuses for high points:)

I feel horrible that I haven't posted in so long, but I've been keeping track of my days and I wrote down points for myself each day. When I get home from work, I'll type it up and post it here.

Ugh, I'm so bad. -_-

 ^.^

I've honestly been having such a wonderful time at my new job, and I'm getting used to being happy again. I had one rough day this week, the day after the 1 year anniversary of my little brother's death, but at the end of the day I was crying because I realized I was finally in a good spot in my life. Part of that has been taking a break from some social media and the internet in general, which is why I haven't posted.

Giving myself points each day is something I think I'll do every day from now on. It really helps.
