HeLpinG OuT a NeiGhBoR..;)

Good morning everyone..(well its still morning here for another 14 minutes anyway)..I hope your thursday is off to a wonderful start..I can't believe some of you are already getting snow...just gives me the chills and makes me want to go and light a fire to take the chill off here..Yesterday I helped out my next door neighbor..she doesn't have a truck and needed a lot of yard debris removed from her I volunteered my truck and my time to help her get her yard in order for the off we went to unload the debris and we picked up 3 loads of I spent my day laying bark in her yard..she was gracious enough to put gas in my truck and give me the free benefits (of a punch card at the bark place) to use when the card is filled up..
we worked for 5 hours yesterday moving that stuff all over the yard..(just wished her 20 year old son had helped us more)..he basically helped with one truck I got my work out yesterday..but was happy to do so as its a form of exercise and I love exercise..anything to get the weight off..I was so motivated yesterday after I was done at her place I did do a 20 minute work out on the treadmill..felt good..and I am down 57 pounds now..which leaves only 25 more to go..see there was a method to my madness yesterday..) working in my yard this past summer helped me lose weight..that is why I didn't mind helping out and getting her yard work done..means less weeds in my yard in the long run..and I got to know my neighbor a bit more..and that was nice too..( look closely at the photo on the side of the house you can see my camera..
I found this on facebook yesterday and it made me laugh...
and I love to laugh this maybe not quite that hard..because I am sure this will come soon enough..well I am off to get some packages mailed off to my giveaway winners and get focusing on getting some crafting done..still need to make tomato jam..may that is what I will do today.) I hope you all have a great day today.:) thanks for dropping in to say hi.)
