A week down, a week to go. Clothes are getting snug despite best intentions to be careful. Too much food, too much wine, too many late nights. Will be good to return home and get back to spartan food and lots of exercise!... Read more

I go to bed, read a little, lights off by 9pm. Sleep until midnight when a HUGE HOT FLASH hits me and I THROW off the covers and fan like crazy. This disturbs the cat who decided she wants to eat so she nibbles at my hair until I calm her down ... Read more

Such a bummer to get 2 sign-in points and 3 points bonus. Sigh...The luncheon we had after church at our house had about 35 people. Plenty of food, most got eaten but one vegan black-bean quinoa casserole was left mostly ignored. Everything wit... Read more

It's overcast with rain again in SC, almost 40 inches so far this year! I'm heading for my walk, followed by a long swim, followed by another walk. Maintaining healthy habits this week and volunteering at a local school should fill the days. I... Read more

How can the year be half over all ready? I'm glad to be able to get two hours of walking in every day, exploring beautiful South Carolina. We got another 1/4 inch of rain last night! We shudder when we look at California...110 degrees. The who... Read more
