Cloudy with a Chance of Squash...
It has been cloudy so often for my morning walks, it feels more like living in Seattle rather than Tucson. Mind you we only have a 10% chance of rain, where in Seattle the heavy clouds mean business, instead of just casting a dry dreary pall on ... Read more

In my last blog I was only a pound and a half away from my one of my goals - to lose 50 lbs. Today I am 5 lbs away from my goal. A lot has happened since I last wrote, and it is obvious that I comforted myself once again with food.

Rain, Glorious Rain!
Ah, our Monsoon storms have finally arrived! The desert quickly soaks up the water and has gone green nearly overnight. The heady smell of the creosote bushes perfumes the air and the cooler temps makes me feel more alive and so happy to get ou... Read more
