Today’s Musings

It is a beautiful day outside. It is 74 degrees with a very light breeze blowing.  I have been working in my yard most of the morning.  I came in for a bit, but I am going right back out as soon as I finish this.

I have added a new post to my  blog.  I have been slow posting to that blog because I need to research before I post.

I mentioned before that I was using Weight Watchers to rid myself of some extra pounds.  I am so pleased with this program that I want to say I highly recommend it.  The cost is minimal.  It can be done from home, no meetings to attend.  It does not feel like a diet.  I can eat any food I want.  It is all about portion control.  There are meetings if one needs that kind of structure.  I don’t like meetings so being able to do this at home is perfect.  I pay attention to my points and most of the time I have a point or two left over.  I have steadily lost weight from the first day.  I lose about 2 ounces a day or a bit over a pound a week.  Weight Watchers told me I would lose between 1/2 pound to 2 pounds a week.  Someone with more weight to lose or if one loses weight easily, could lose faster.  I have had a terrible time losing weight.  It was easy to gain and very hard to lose.  I am very happy with the rate I am losing.  It is the only program I have found that works for me.  I spent BIG bucks with Metabolic Research Center and it did not work.  I have tried Atkins, fasting, Nutrisystem, and I can’t remember all the others.  Nothing worked. Weight Watchers was my last shot.  A friend told me his son lost a lot on WW and I thought I may as well give it a try.  I am so happy I did!.

The sunshine is calling me, so I am off to enjoy it.  I hope you are having a beautiful day, also.

Happy Easter to you all!

Thoughts for this day

It is a cold November morning in my corner of the world.  I have been trying for weeks to get this blog started.  I wasn’t sure how to go about it…and I am still not sure, but I decided to jump in anyway.  I may be making some changes as I gain more experience.

I actually have two other badly neglected blogs.  One is here on WordPress entitled “Fullfilled Prophesy.”  I haven’t done much with it either, but I am resolved to do better because that subject is dear to me.  I know you will notice that I have fulfilled mispelled.  I didn’t catch it until it was too late, so I will have to live with it.  The other blog is on Blogspot.  It is “Nora’s Art Cache.”  I haven’t posted on it for a long time either.  I plan to move it to WordPress so all my blogs will be at the same location.

I am an early riser.  I like to go out on my patio with a cup of green tea and feel the day emerge.  The stars are still sparkling in the heavens  when I sit down.  I can gaze into the universe and marvel at the handy work of my God.  Soon the sky to the east begins to lighten and the stars disappear one by one.  The deep purple of the heavens turns cerulean then azure as the sun begins to peak over the horizon.  Clouds glow in peach and apricot attire.  The birds begin to sing at just the right moment before sunrise, praising God for the new day.  Belle, my little Maltese, checks out the yard then comes an asks to sit in my lap.  Together we watch the day begin.

There is a valley beyond my back yard with a stream meandering down the middle which then rises to a low hill.  It is covered with hardwood trees.  This time of year the hill has on her autumn finery of gold, orange, red and rust.  The valley is a pasture where cattle graze sometimes and if I am lucky, I will see deer grazing there, too.
