Ever since I went to San Diego last summer and spent the day with Linda I have wanted some succulents. Finally I have gathered enough to make a little garden in the front flower bed. It makes me happy.
Lamp I found up at the Gold Mine for $10. Really warms up the fire place corner.
My friend Pam asked me if I'd like to go to Weight Watchers with her. Ever since she's known me, she's had to listen to me whine about overweight. I didn't really think I would do it. I really didn't think I was capable of losing any of this weight. But with much embarassment and fear of the scales, I did it. It has been 5 weeks and I have lost 13 pounds. I am beyond happiness over it. I just hope to make it through one day at a time. There is a sign over by the airport for smoke cessation that says "never quit quitting" and I have taken that up as my motto. Also the perseverance necklace is a reminder. Perseverance wins!
Becky sent me this book marker. Thanks, Beck. It makes me feel kind of like someone from the era of this book. I belong to a book club in my neighborhood. I am hosting tomorrow night. We read Rebecca this month. This is the very copy which belonged to Den's mom and gave him the idea to name our daughter. So the whole thing is just kind of serendipitous. And also was a very good read.
