    Stated my day trying on some old clothes today-- 2 bags of stuff that was outgrown and in storage bags for about 15 years -- started with shirts-- many went to the donations pile because they're just too big now. -- dress pants were next-- some fit ok and went to the keep for now pile-- not su...

    Today has been a fun day! Officially hit 90 pounds gone! Had the top off the Jeep and went for a ride-- decided to check out a fairly new walking trail nearby-- me and the Jeep got caught in the rain-- fun times-- until the thunder started-- had to hurry home and get the Jeep covered-...

    One more day until PTO! Looks like it's shaping up to have at least some nice weather for it, too! Don't forget to look up if you're out at night-- it's Perseids time now through late August-- you might just catch a glimpse of a meteor or two! ... Read more

  • Sunday musings

    7/18/2021 11:15:25 PM, by SES823

    So glad the heat let up today-- so much so that it felt a bit chilly! An old friend used to say that towards the end of July you could already start to feel Autumn trying to rush in-- these cool summer days always make me think of him. Picked up groceries yesterday and did some meal prep today-- ... Read more

  • Groceries

    7/16/2021 9:21:30 PM, by SES823

    Why are groceries so awful these days? From my last grocery order (picked up on Saturday) my shredded cheese was moldy when I opened the bag-- the asparagus had a slimy spear in the center of the bunch when I went to cook it on Sunday-- there was a rotten sweet potato in the bag-- and 2 onions w...

    7/15/2021 10:08:33 PM, by SES823

    In the last couple days I can't even tell you how many times I've dropped the F-bomb! I'm so tired of stupid questions-- examples-- --why are you getting rid of these clothes-- they're still good-- ---------because they #%$%# don't fit now-- they're getting donated -- why don't you buy...

    Hope everyone had a nice weekend! I went to get some new plants, but there were none that I felt connected to-- hubby thinks it's weird-- he says they're just plants-- I just want to like the plants I have and not just buy a plant for the sake of having it. 378 I finally hit my Spring Cha...

  • Happy Friday, Y'all!!

    7/9/2021 9:39:29 PM, by SES823

    Whew-- what a week it's been! Seem like the short work weeks always seem to be the ones with the most trouble-- shortened deadlines, computer issues, schedule changes, and quarterly close. Not complaining-- just glad it's done! Have a great weekend-- and remember to take a minute to stop and sm... Read more

    Getting ready for a typical weekend-- grocery pick-up and meal prep! What's everyone got planned?

    7/6/2021 8:59:01 PM, by SES823

    OK-- I posted yesterday about atkins.com and that it's powered by Spark People and also changing in August-- I got a couple Spark Mails about it-- just to set the record straight I was not trying uncover some weird conspiracy or 'stir the pot'-- I was only just making a comment on what I noticed.

    Just saw a post on Facebook about Atkins.com-- decided to check it out-- they have a meal tracker just like the one here-- bottom of the page says powered by Spark People-- and guess what-- there's a message on their site that they're changing in August, too :-( Thought that might be a possible rep...

    Well-- live music was rained out again 39 It gave me some time to try 2 pizza crust recipes-- one was a success, the other not so much.

    Got my hair cut today! From mid-back to shoulder length- it was definitely time for a change! Salon has posted that all their employees are fully vaccinated and all must still wear masks- and you had to show your vaccine card to even go into the building. It was so weird going inside somewhere ot... Read more
