Well, I did! I have been continuing to exercise even though it is crazy hot here, and I continue my efforts to track and stay within my calorie range. Not that I have reached perfection with tracking – not even close – but I still continue to work at, and I am seeing progress and more consistency.
So, yes, I deserve a treat. Not a sweet treat, of course. That would defeat the purpose. Had you worried there for a minute, did I? I opted for a new CD. Have you seen the movie, “Quartet”? It is a British comedy about retired musicians, stars Maggie Smith, and was directed by Dustin Hoffman. It is an absolute gem of a movie. I think it is one that I could watch over and over again. It is a good story with engaging characters, and it is also visually stunning with an incredible setting in both the house (it was filmed at Hedsor House, the magnificent privately-owned Georgian country house in Buckinghamshire) and the surrounding English countryside. On top of all that, it has the best soundtrack I have heard in ages. So that was my treat – the CD for “Quartet”.
