Which means I should set my alarm earlier. I was 20 minutes later than normal getting to the knitters/pilots group this morning. But, on the fun side, I saw six rabbits are various spots along the way. Gotta love the bunnies! ... Read more

Since the weather said rain for today at the time we normally have been walking, we walked early this morning. Man, the birds were vocal! It was cool, a little cloudy, the birds were fun to watch streaking around, and DB saw two deer beside the ... Read more

On the scale this morning-I am up 0.5 lb! I expected more than that since I was not able to get in a morning walk after the second morning. Tuesday and Wednesday I got in over a mile that was more of a hike (up and down) than a walk. Wednesday i... Read more
