Friday Roundup

 There is one spectacle grander than the sea,
That is the sky;
There is one spectacle grander than the sky,
That is the interior of the soul.

Victor Hugo

Good Morning, everyone.  What weather we have been having, huh?  Yesterday it seemed more like late Autumn than Spring.  Heck, when I opened the door to leave Weight Watchers yesterday, a pile of dead leaves blew in.  Sure felt and looked like snow.  Actually needed my gloves and hadn't brought them.  Today the rain may not be falling at the moment, but it is gray and damp with more rain on the way.  The good thing is that it will be warming up, and we are in for a great weekend of weather.

Lost another .08 pounds this week.  Slow and sure is the way to go if one hopes to keep it off in the long run.  Lost 33.2 pounds so far.  Have another 30 to go.  That will take off all the weight I gained since I stopped smoking.  After that I will go from there, and see if any more has to come off.  I could just shoot myself for gaining all this weight and that "I don't care" attitude I held onto for so long. But, no sense crying over spilled milk.  I can't take it back. All I can do now is move on and take better care of myself in the future. 

Hubby is doing great now.  The liver medication worked, and he is now in total remission.  And his erratic tests results on his kidneys have also stabilized.  I know the medication works wonders, but I also know that proper nutrition helps a lot.  Everything I cook, I make from scratch.  Always have.  Even when I was doing that crazy two weeks worth of cooking while I was working.  Only difference is my menu is now more varied.

Not much on the agenda this weekend.  Been having a hard time getting around because of all this pain--fibro flareup.  I DO make sure I get out though. If Saturday is warm enough, I am hoping to go to the park with my sketchbook.  That's something I always wanted to do...and at least now I can do more than a lopsided stick figure. LOL!!!

Lately I have been experiencing many signs from the Otherworld, both from Miss Minga and from, I am almost positive, my grandmother.  I know many may think this is wishful thinking on my part, but I have visible proof of most of it.  Next week I will share it with you.  Perhaps I am more open now than I once was.  I don't know, but whatever the cause I find myself paying more attention to the signs and symbols that appear around me.

Well, that's about it for this week.  Let's hope Spring finally arrives for good next week.  Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Your weight loss is an inspiration! And happy to hear that your hubz is doing so much better too.

  2. An ex good friend of my daughter Cheryl jumped into the freezing cold river from a bridge 2 weeks ago today. They still haven't found her . Car was left running, purse & phone inside. Daughter has joined the search a few days & is feeling terribly guilty that she ended their friendship because this woman was stealing her deaf, dumb & blind. She burned many people & her husband was divorcing her. She had 2 grown sons from her 1st marriage & a 16 year old son from this marriage. Cheryl called me this a.m,. to tell me about the vivid dream in depth that she had of her & Bonnie hugging each other tightly. She is very emotionally upset & thinks this was Bonnie's way of saying that she forgave her. Glad that my daughter is finding comfort in that even though it was Bonnie that stole often from my daughter & she left her no choice but to not open her door to her again. Dreams can be wonderful. Had a few myself. (((hugs)))

  3. Oh, our weather is something else here... Yesterday we had the dense fog and thunderstorm and today the wind wants to blow us away. It did warm up though.

    Ha... the weight you put on when you stop smoking. I know something about that. I had an excellent metabolism when I was young.. then I decided by some sheer attack of stupidity to start smoking.. did that for 3 or 4 years and when I stopped, I gained so much weight I couldn't believe it. Smoking does something awful to human metabolism.

    Oh yes, and I want to hear about your Otherworld experiences... I'm always all ears (or eyes, lol) for that.

    Have a lovely weekend Mary :)

  4. Congratulations to you and your hubby Mary, you're doing great, bye, bye, for now.
