Today was a beautiful day!

My day started out with picking up my Mum. She and I went downtown to see my hairdresser, who I love dearly and I trust... with my hair! She's great I don't tell her what I'd like she does what she thinks looks best for my face. We've gone blonde again! What fun!

After our hair do's it was nice out so we walked upto Parliament Hill. Its so peaceful in the winter, nice and quiet! In the summer its just jam packed with tourists! Of course... I took pictures!

Our walk was followed with lunch out! No wonder I was hungry! It was 2pm by the time we were eating! Then I took Mum home. Dad had been getting concerned about all the snow piled up on the garage roof (which is lower than the house so the snow just collects there). He paid someone to come in and get the snow off of the garage. Imagine a pile of snow as long as a two car garage, up to 5ft high and 3-4ft wide! I couldn't let my poor dad move all of that on my own. So I grabbed a shovel and broke it up as my dad snowblowed what I broke off of the pile. It took the two of us an hour and 45 minutes to get it cleared away!

Then it was .... weigh in time! I lost another 1.5lbs this week! This means in two weeks I'm already down 5lbs! Weight Watchers really does work!

Tomorrow I'm off to Brighton! I'm going to stay with Ann & Dan. I'll get to see the Thrusday Stitchers, Beatrice, and Sharon!

SNOW!!!! That's why I moved from Boston to Naples, FL!! I couldn't take it anymore!! So proud of you for your weight experience, Dani. I heard it called "weight gain in health" the other day...instead of loss. I'm glad you're gaining health everyday!
Love and hugs,
