Sounds like you're all managing various levels of adversity. We had a wind alert yesterday, probably the lowest reaches of that huge storm that trounced the mid-west.

I took the dogs for a nice long walk again this evening. It is sometimes an effort to get myself out the door, but once we start walking it's great. It will get easier as the weigh comes off. I always have a lot more energy with I'm at my "normal" weight.

I made a 1/2 batch of the same tortillas I made for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I ate two and put the other four in the freezer. The interim light eating (but not the same rigid diet) says limit of 2 slices of bread a day. I filled them with a fajita filling - sweet banana pepper slices, onion slices, seasoning, and shredded chicken. I do like having a bird as leftovers in the fridge for a variety of dishes; that diet proscribes the meal every day and you can't use the bird fast enough before it gets too old.

This evening I have been photographing another eBay item. It is a small, rounded shiny enamel and silver compact. It must have been purchased in the 1920s, the price tag is still inside. 39 cents. This one has very little sign of it's age, only a couple of tiny nicks in it. Shiny round things are difficult to photograph, to light and focus and keep your reflection out. I've tried close; tomorrow in daylight I'll try it with a telephoto lens outside (I'll be way back, focusing in on it). That should let it all be in focus and the focal plane won't be quite as shallow as it is up close.
