It's the end of February. Lent! Lent snuck up so quickly I barely had the Christmas decorations away. And, well, that's not so unusual for me anyway. I love Christmas decorations and see no need to scurry around putting them away, even after the Epiphany. After all, the liturgical season of Christmas lasts longer than that. But I did get them away before Ash Wednesday. So that's good.Now we are ..read more

 My sixth grandchild was baptized yesterday. Such a wonderful, joyful day. The grace of God was all over it. Such peace. Such a sense of gratitude for all that God has done and continues to do.All but one of my grandchildren were there. (The missing one was sick.)Just looking at my children and grandchildren fills me with joy. I know I'm extremely biased but they are adorable. There was a large ..read more

 Just returned from a delightful three day visit with my son and his family. Grandchildren. They are the best. So cute. So engaging. So wonderfully devoted to their grandparents and the feeling is mutual.When we arrived they came running out of the house yelling, "Nana! Grandpa!!" Their faces were filled with delight, as were ours. I took a walk later with my three-year-old grandson when he saw a ..read more

 All right. It's been a while. Time to write here again.I spent several hours weeding my gardens this morning. It was not too hot and I knew I'd get more done in the morning than later in the day. Just as in life, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the presence of weeds in the garden. We finally had several days of good rain and the weeds clearly loved it.The challenge for me in weeding is to not ..read more

 Good news! I'm down 3.4 pounds! That's over two weeks since I didn't post last week.Why didn't I post last week? Because I was very sick with a gastrointestinal bug. Yeah, very sick. Yes, yes, that does account for some of the loss. But a loss is a loss, right? I didn't gain it back after my recovery.Note to self: Keep eating mindfully. Do NOT eat when you are not hungry and DO stop when you are ..read more

 OK! Good news. I am down. I am down two pounds from last week and 2.8 overall. (Because I had a gain one week.)Note to self: Good job eating mindfully. I have to continue not just eating for fun, but only if I'm hungry. Also need to stop when I'm full. Keep reminding myself that this is not a matter of eating as much as I can get away with. It's a matter of eating healthfully and only as much as ..read more

 Well, it's another Weight Loss Wednesday. I've lost a measly .8 pounds from last week. Pretty pathetic.Overall, I am still a pound up from when I started two weeks ago. This is not good. Time to wake up and remind myself, maybe many times a day, that I will not lose weight unless I eat less food. I must eat only when I'm hungry and stop when I am full. That's it.Hopefully this week will go a ..read more

 All right. I have to confess. I am UP 1.8 pounds. I write this having just finished a small bowl of sweet potato chips that I did not need.Notes to Self: Eating when I am not really hungry is not in my best interests. If I want to lose weight I must stop eating for fun. God does not want me to waste food by putting in my mouth food that I do not really need.Time to get serious. My daughter is ..read more

This is my grandson. As he made little lines by pulling his fingers against the nap of the fabric on this chair my thoughts went back some sixty years.I used to do the very same thing when I was a little girl. It was fun. And all you had to do was brush your hand over the fabric again and the lines would disappear.My brother and sister and I had all done it. Then I realized not only did I do that ..read more
