Hubby's commitment to exercise lasted two days. He's back flopped crosswise on our bed. A freeze is predicted for Friday, so we are scurrying to harvest the remnants in our garden. Hopefully both of us will benefit from this gentle exercise. I h... Read more

So apparently I cannot read a scale reliably. At least, i cannot imagine I lost over 10 pounds in the past 10 days. Nevertheless, I weighed in at just under 246, the lowest I have been in 20 years. I had a nurse double check me, to be sure tha... Read more

I am so disgruntled! I weighed in this afternoon at the clinic and discovered I have gained ten pounds back over the summer, about what I lost all last year. Grrr! I knew I wasn't paying enough attention, but swam every day and felt so good I wa... Read more

We spent 5 days in Yellowstone last week, as we have nearly every summer for the past 23 years. This year I was able to walk much farther than I have for many years, both. Withand without my rollator walker. I could have organized it better. I ... Read more

So I blew it yesterday - my calorie count I mean - badly, a whole day's food allowance more than I needed. The culprit? Girl Scout Cookies! Those delicious, seductively gooey chocolately caramel kind. Out of, I hope, generosity, I fell prey to t... Read more

I finally summoned the courage to face the scales again. Hadn't weighed since well before Christmas, & was dreading it, knowing how indulgent I'd been over the holidays, especially in New Mexico. Sure enough, I have gained. The good news - only ... Read more

Our garden is really rolling now. Tonight we feasted on home grown watermelon & cantaloupe, corn on the cob & golden summer squash, cucumbers & plump ripe tomatos. If only our little burg had not so unenlightenedly banned all livestock & fowl fr... Read more

Our garden erupted in growth during my absence. My small patch in the front yard, edged in marigold & gallaria, columbine & flax on 2 sides, turnips & purple pod snap beans on the other 2 & filled in mid rows with tomatos, was also carpeted with... Read more

Made it home Sunday night about 8:30pm, another grand driving day chasing towering cumulus clouds whose scattered showers green everything, making manicured parks of the usually crispy hills & plains. What a wonderful trip! My son has crossed th... Read more
