Saturday Specials

Just a few days of sunshine and the buds are opening.  I love the color green of the budding trees.  For as far back as I can remember I have always been in awe of the leaves slowly opening and every year I say I'm going to catch them pop fully and every year I miss it ... all of a sudden they are full and it seems like I miss that final burst.  Maybe if I take a picture every day, this year I can catch it.  I should really know better, can't catch Mother Nature, but I shall try.

I'll be heading out early to my Weight Watcher's meeting.  What a boost!  I've met some of the nicest people and look forward to seeing them each Saturday morning.  To add to this week was yesterday's weigh in of a loss of 2.8 lbs.  I was quite shocked to say the least.  I had been toying with buying a new scale but I think I will wait a bit longer.  I think its better to find out once a week then every day which I know I would be doing.  I love this new program and I can see that it is truly a way of life and I no longer regard it as a diet.   I'm hoping that I will be able to reduce my medications as my weight reduces.

My sweet little rabbit is getting close to completion.  I'm hoping to have him done before next weekend.  I've made a couple of oops but I think he is still looking mighty fine. 

Have a Special Weekend


  1. Congratulations on the weight loss. I'm trying to lose some also. Ugly, wet, rainy day here in SC. Hope yours is better.

  2. Congratulations on your weight loss Glor. I joined WW myself and am on my second week. South Beach was just too restrictive for me. I too like the new program (although I did splurge on my b-day). Have a terrific day. :-)

    Thank you again for your prayers and your guardian angel. :) We made it ok, there were reports of a funnel cloud south of us, but everyone is good. I just could not live here without prayer. It means so much to know that I have someone as kind as you out there praying for all of us. Thank you. :)

    Blessings to you and yours always
