Friday Roundup

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us
tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden
over the horizon--instead of enjoying the roses
that are blooming outside our windows today.

Good morning.  Been such a busy week for me what with school starting on Tuesday.  Been running about every day. Monday and Wednesday were spent in school shopping.  Got all my supplies and a bag.  Wednesday was grocery shopping, Thursday Weight Watchers, and today I am going to get my hair cut, put some money on my metrocard, and head to Pathmark for my medications.  Later in the afternoon the nurse is coming for my final monthly visit.  I think tomorrow needs to be a stay-in day of rest.

My daughter's surgery went well yesterday.  Thank you for all your prayers. 

Had a real good week with my weight.  Lost 1 pound, finally hitting that illusive 40 I have been struggling to reach for months.  And even better, it's the first time I bought myself anything to wear since I began this journey, and guess what?  I went from a size 3x to XL.  3 sizes down.  Brought tears to my eyes.  Weight Watchers does work.

It's been so darn hot and humid here I don't know how I got anything done.  Believe it or not, I have MOST of my summer clothes packed away.  Did that on Wednesday after the groceries were delivered.  Left out enough to last me until cool weather sets in and started sorting through my fall clothing.  All this and it was 90 degrees outdoors.

Speaking of heat, yesterday I stood out in the sun for 15 minutes waiting for the bus.  When it finally arrived I was so relieved to get on and out of the heat.  All but one of the front seats were empty so I sat and leaned back, enjoying the coolness of the AC...until the next stop.  There were still 4 available seats up front and a multitude in the aisles, but this lady gets on and decides she just HAS to sit in the seat right next to me. If the bus had been packed, and it was the only seat available, I would have understood, but she could have sat anyplace rather than plop her hot sweaty body next to me.  I just don't understand people.

Had a spammer on my blog yesterday.  Glad I filter messages.  One of those born agains who cited a whole bunch of Bible verses as a comment.  I clicked his name and discovered he has a Christian blog.  Now, don't get me wrong.  Everyone has a right to their beliefs however different they may be, but they DO NOT have a right to come to someone else's blog and spout their beliefs.  What they don't know is that although my heading may denote Pagan, I have more spirituality within than they could ever hope to have.  I look for the good in all.  His close-minded self can't say that.

And with that I take my leave and bid you all a magnificent fun-filled weekend.
