27 weeks! How long until someone will tell me to quit counting? After my Close Encounter with the Deer Kind yesterday, I forgot to say that I’d been to my mother’s grave and she looked pretty as ever. I’ll have to post a picture of her stone one of these days. I did my exercises […]

I had my thrill for the day on the way home from Wal*Mart this evening. I was almost here and running at a pretty good clip when I saw a deer moving into my lane. Thank God for my nimble little Honda Civic. I swerved and missed the deer by inches. That’s the first time […]

It’s late! I’m going to make this short. I didn’t get up until about 6:30 this morning. That didn’t leave any time for exercising. I did do LSE’s off and on today. I think it was either three sets or four. Anyway, that and power walking made up my exercise. Breakfast was OJ, a white […]

I’m at my son’s place and it’s raining. I got here while it was still daylight which was nice. They’d just gotten home, themselves, so it worked out well. On the way here, I stopped by the cemetery and took some pictures of my mother’s stone that was set just a few days ago. Mother’s […]

6 months today! Isn’t that amazing! It doesn’t seem that long when I was feasting on cooked food and loving it but now it’s about as tempting as a pork chop would be. I can look at it and smell it but I don’t want it. Before (073005) and During (Today) A Little Over One […]

26 weeks and counting! It’s almost 11 and I’m not in bed yet. There were four young girls baptized this evening in a little town about 20 miles from where I work–opposite from home. I went and got drafted to play the piano. It was over fairly early but I had to eat when I […]
