How's it going???? Great weekend here weatherwise....so I'm guessing same for you. Perfect. Did you get a chance to sit on the porch of the summer place. Hope so! I'm a little jealous...just saying. Maybe you got to sit and enjoy AFTER a nice long walk with your puppy pal!

I spent a nice time on Saturday with my sister and my neiice just chillin poolside. A little wine but not overdone. Yay! grilled chicken and corn in cob dinner, also good! extra long walk early in the AM. (also good time to do LOTS of thinking/assessing/ psyching myself out that I can do this!)

Wishing you peace of mind and the strength to keep pushing towards the goal...however elusive the answers as to HOW are! LOL

Wish I had more for ya but just checking in. Unfortunately I'm NOT the answer guru! Wish I was! haha. Wouldn't that be nifty!

Hope you'll settle for some cheerleading. You got this! Just keep striving....the skinny shorts await thee.

Good Morning emoticon
Wow! Long message on my page emoticon
It sounds like your summer is shaping up pretty good. Sorry you don't have the space or sun for a garden. I really like it when everything is ready to pick, all of the work required before that, not so much. Usually Rod is the gardening person, I'm hoping that next year he'll be able to do it again.
I think you're right, Katie will feel much better once her roommate returns. It's nice that she's close enough for you to be able to visit once in awhile. It sounds like she has a pretty busy summer lined up too.
I wish I had another brilliant idea for Father's Day but I'm afraid I'm fresh out of ideas. How about an ice cream maker? I just ordered a refurbished Cuisinart that doesn't require ice, you keep part of it in the freezer before using it. It got good reviews and cost less than half of the new price. We're going to have a LOT of fruit once our fruit trees all start producing so I'm trying to come up with ideas of what to do with it all. We have 3 apple trees that are already pulling the limbs down with all the apples. We also have peach, persimmon (we think) and plum as well as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. I told Rod yesterday we may have to think about getting a bigger freezer.
Hope your weekend is great!

Hi emoticon
Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog. It's always nice to hear form you. I've been pretty busy lately and haven't really had time to do much Sparking lately, maybe things will calm down some for me soon. I posted a link to a video on my Facebook page about women, weight loss and self esteem. I found it on SparkPeople and thought it was really good. I don't think many people saw the link though because no one commented or "liked" it. I wrote another blog with some pictures of Rod's shop we've been working on, our new computer desks and the bunk bed I put together yesterday. I think I'm going to try and slow down some for the next couple of days because I've managed to inflame my elbow quite a lot. Hope everything is still good with you, I imagine you're getting close to the end of the school year and hopefully a couple week break before summer school starts. emoticon
