Enjoying the day
Sunday, July 10, 2011      1 comments

Today I am thinking positive and hoping we can leave for the cabin this week. The last thing pending is jury duty tomorrow. I am selfishly hoping I only have to go the one day. I live in the northeast section of Polk - about as far away from ... Read more
A nothing sort of day

I got up this morning and it felt good not to have to go anywhere. I played on the computer for a few minutes and then went for a walk. I thought it would be short as it was getting hot already but the cloud cover and a slight breeze help... Read more

We are back in Florida and the humidity is incredible. Although we had bouts of rain and thunderstorms in the mountain when they clear the weather is dry and sunny. I got out of the car in Florida and my glasses immediately steamed up! Th... Read more

Rainy days in the mountains

We have changing thunderstorms most every day here in north GA. This morning I was on the deck early and the sun was out. Within a few minutes the clouds rolled in and it was black as could be and windy. Within another few minutes the sun was... Read more
The grand is sick
Monday, June 27, 2011      3 comments

Our granddaughter woke up with a sore throat - this is not supposed to happen when you are visiting Grammie and Gramps. We've spend the day entertaining her and we are both hoarse from reading one book after another. Gramps is down there doing... Read more

Disappointing morning............

We took the granddaughter to a farm of miniature animals and it promised an old west town with all the shops, banks, jail and café, etc. We were prepared for a good day's walk around the farm and town and maybe a little lunch. It was very disap... Read more
Eating enough
Thursday, June 23, 2011      4 comments

OK, everyone please don't even think I don't eat enough. I am confident that I will never come to that point. I eat 3 meals and at least 2 snacks sometimes 3 everyday. I will have to do portion control for the rest of my life but that is OK. ... Read more

Since re-committing myself to myself and getting back on track I find that I am no longer hungry all the time like I was for the first week or 10 ten days. I've told my granddaughter that while she is here, there are things I must do to stay he... Read more
