Dr..appt…and other stuff

I had my preventive Dr appointment last week…they called yesterday…everything is all good…but the best part is I was 35lbs lighter than my last visit…I have added excercise to my daily activities…and it has made a big difference, but I have to admit I have truly committed to it, I do something everyday and sometimes twice a day.    I also have joined Jenny Craig to get the last 20 off…I still have 10 to go…the hardest ones, so thanks for all the wonderful comments at the shows…a lot of people were even asking me where I was???

While I was in Paducah, we stayed in Metropolis which is 6 miles north of Paducah in Illionis.  We stayed at the Harrah’s Casino Hotel, which doesn’t have a gym…so I was hoofing the streets of Metropolis at 6am…no one must get up that early there, the streets we almost deserted.  But I stumbled upon Fort Massac built in the 1700’s, now this was really cool… there was a huge statue of George Clark (part of Louis & Clark)….if he was truly as handsome as this statue I would have following him all through the country too!  You could walk right up in these log cabins…It all sat over looking the beautiful Ohio River.  I made Nick stop so I could take some pictures before we went to work that morning.

I got up early this morning and pieced month 4 of Civil War Tribute…so I now am on the current month…I have a couple more table mats for Market…I will show them soon….just need to stitch the backs on.  LB

  1. Good for you for losing the weight and for keeping up such a good exercise routine!! It does make a person feel better 🙂

    Loved the photos of your trip. Those log cabins are so sweet !!

    And good for you for staying current with your Civil War Tribute blocks. I am behind as usual 🙂 Don’t you love all the fabric with this BOM?

    1. Yes…I feel great and almost like I am 25 again…I love all the fabrics in CWT, but when I am putting the blocks together I think…i would never be putting this with that!!!! But I know the finished quilt is beautiful! Just goes to show ya…

      1. Oh, I agree with you on that one. I’ve thought the same thing that I wouldn’t be such fabric with such fabric. It really IS gorgeous though in the end 😀

  2. Ohhh I went to Padukah last summer and then drove over to Metropolis. Did you take a picture by Superman?

    Good work losing the weight. It goes on a lot easier than it oomes off!
    Have a great day,
    Nancy

  3. I LOVE George Rogers Clark! I have read all about him in novels by James Alexander Thom, who also wrote Follow the River, and From Sea to Shining Sea. Excellent historical fiction! Do you ever have time to read? I often marvel at how those early American settlers traveled all over the place. The Clarks were from Virginia and friends with Thomas Jefferson. Too much info? Sorry, I get carried away.

  4. Actually, you wouldn’t have traveled far with George Clark. It was his brother William Clark that helped lead the expedition westward with Meriwether Lewis. George Clark did fight in the Revolutionary War but spent most of his life as an alcoholic with bad debts.
