A Wee Note on a Gorgeous Thursday Morn

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
L.H. Bailey

Good and morning friends and family. As the weather continues to warm up I find myself making plans for a possible day in the park. I just love sitting up on the hill watching the water below. Gives me such a sense of peace and serenity.

As for today, I'm off to Weight Watchers this morning. I've gotten very lazy, and I am afraid it is going to show again. Instead of walking to church on Sunday, I hopped on the bus. Then I stayed in and worked on my genealogy project for three days. A sitting down job. Have to get myself moving again. Exercise is a big part of this weight loss journey. So, I'm going to walk it to the second bus today. Have to start somewhere.
My journey hasn't been easy.  In fact, at times it has been downright frustrating.  I've been sitting here for months trying to hit that 50 pound mark.  I put on .2, take of .2, stay the same, then put on .2.  But, disappointing as it might be, it has shown me a lot about my stamina.  I don't give up.  When I want something bad enough, I'll jump through hoops to get it.  Here's hoping for a loss today.  Put on my .2 last week.

Have a good one.


  1. Keep at it, Mary -- you'll make it past that plateau!

  2. Good luck. I really admire your persistence. It is much easier to give up than to continue.
