Another TGIF

I had a routine mammogram today.  As I was sitting there in my waist length tissue paper gown (The women reading this know what I'm talking about.  The men can use their imagination) I had a brilliant idea.  I asked the technician if I could take the gown home to wear during my Weight Watcher's weigh-in.

The mammogram results were good.  Don't have to have 'em smashed for another six months.

We've been having beautiful, warm weather lately.  Maybe summer is finally here.  I keep telling people we shouldn't complain about the cold, wet spring/beginning summer that we had.  So much of the rest of the country is really suffering from the heat.  I remember those days in Oklahoma as I was growing up. At night I would put my bed against an open window and lie my head on the windowsill trying to get a smidgen of cool breeze.

It's been a great time here for working on our ongoing landscaping.  A friend let us dig some plants from her immense yard/garden.  Nearly every inch of her yard is planted in flowers and shrubs which her deceased husband planted.  He knew the name of every plant including the Latin names.

To my Oklahoma family members:  Keep cool!!

Weigh-in Wednesday

I can hardly believe it's been nearly two weeks since I've been on here.  I was very busy getting garden art ready for a flea market last Saturday.  It's an annual event here in our little town.  I was told that this is the first year it has rained on the event since it started many years ago.  Sales weren't great, but I'm not complaining considering the weather. 

Today was the weekly Weight Watchers meeting.  I lost .4 of a pound regardless of the fact that I nearly wiped out a quart of ice cream a couple nights ago.  I had intended to eat one half cup, but it tasted so good that I had another....and another.....and another.  Then I was eating right out of the carton.  I quit when I put my spoon in and saw the bottom of the carton.  I didn't want to have to tell my husband that I totally consumed the ice cream.  

Have any of you had a 'can't stop eating' experience?  If so, wanna tell me about it?

My Belated Birthday Gift

When DH (Dear Hubby) asked me what I wanted for my birthday last February all I could think of was a pergola for grape vines.  He constructed it about a month ago when the weather began to cooperate somewhat.  He bought two cedar trellises for the ends; then built the rest of it.  I LOVE it!  We planted a grape vine at each end.  I laid concrete slabs (with the help of a friend who is much younger and more energetic that I am) underneath for my bistro table and chairs.  Here's the carpenter at rest.
