I have wanted to blog lately, but couldn't figure out how to start-well, I've started! I hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful fall! Here in the NW we are relishing the rain coming again as this summer has really dried things out! The grass is becoming green again and the air is just clearer. Of course, the weeds are happy, too, so that means keeping them down! But there's a positive side in that as weeding makes great exercise! This time of year I try to hit the bamboo shoots that have attempted to regenerate. We have blackberry bushes and bamboo that has been cut back, but will never completely die!!! My roses are back to smelling beautiful and I derive tremendous pleasure from just that one bush! It is a peace rose, yellow, often with peach or pink highlights and I love them dearly. The hummingbirds have decided to come back, as they kinda disappeared throughout the summer, real flowers taste better, I guess. As for my weight loss journey, well, there have been many bumps, some health-related, others emotional, but for the most part, I have been on a pretty smooth track for awhile. Some anticipation building as I travel back to OK for my daughter's wedding and then to CO for my husband's mom's memorial. Life happens!! I plan to purchase a cheap digital scale, so I can keep track of my weight during this extended vacation! Don't want to gain back all that I've worked hard to lose this summer! That's about it for me, gonna start crocheting new baby blanket tonight, so better write off. Enjoy your days, they are all God's gifts to us!!!!
