This and that!

I've lost three more pounds this week and I do believe it is all attributable to my not eating after five or six o'clock! It hasn't been easy! :-/ I mean, what is it about sitting down in front of the Tv that makes a person want to eat?? *sigh*

Anywayyyyy......I am only 4 pounds from my goal of losing 20lbs. before the ladies' retreat on the 11th! BUT we are going away for a couple of days. Daniel, Erin, Jaylon, Ed and I are going to Dayton to visit the Air Force Museum, spend the night.....not at the museum!, we staying at a nearby hotel!......maybe do some shopping at a couple of outlet malls and of course, EAT! So, I'm thinking the 4 pounds-by-Friday might be a long shot! :-) We'll see. I'm gonna try to not overdo it!

I had a campfire tonight! It was wonderful!! Ed doesn't care to sit around a campfire much because the bugs eat him alive, while they don't bother me at all.

I haven't been able to have a campfire for several years because of the physical ailments that I suffered with for so long. It is so relaxing and peaceful to just sit there and enjoy the night air and the night sounds, watching the stars come out.

When Daniel was quite a bit younger, he and I used to make a campfire and sit down there with Bearly, our family dog by our side. We made some wonderful memories.


I hope you are having a great holiday weekend with your families and friends! God Bless!!! :-)
