It's been (over) 'One Week'...

...since my last blog post.  While the title sounds like someone heading to a confessional, it is also represents the title of the song, One Week.

For the last ten days, there really hasn't been anything of note to talk about.  I am still following The Maker's Diet but I still haven't gotten back to using the Wii Fit Plus or even checked my weight loss progress.  This is not to say that I haven't been physically active, however.

 Today is the second day in what is supposed to be a three day deluge.  While the rain isn't torrential, it hasn't let up for in the last 36 hours and it is supposed to continue through tomorrow.  The brook out back has swollen considerably.  Most of the rivers and streams are at or beyond flood levels due to all of the rain we had last week and this current rain is only exacerbating the issue.  As of 4 AM today (according to the National Weather Service), the Connecticut River has risen 8.4 above normal.  Flood stage is at 8 feet.  They also expect the river to crest at 13 feet on Thursday due to the course of the storm.  Fortunately for us, we are not at any risk of flooding.  One positive result from all this rain is that the plants and trees have really started to bud.  Things are really starting to turn green again - except for the forsythia bushes which are now a vibrant yellow!
