Did you ever think you would see them again??? Sunny Sundays that is. After I finished weeding this morning, I sat on the bench in my garden and counted the birds who came to feed. If I had a fancy camera, I would take photos of all the back yard visitors…some back from the south, like Timothy Titmouse who showed up this week, and most singing their hearts out and enjoying the fine day.
John the gardener says he’s taking off next weekend to take his wife for a run around the Tidal Basin where the cherry trees (early varieties) should be in full bloom. More power to him, he’s been working hard for me the past few weeks.
My oldest son is in town from San Diego, taking a management course at the Navy Yard in D.C. He and his sister drove down to meet my younger son and clear their personal possessions from their dad’s house. The ‘wicked’ stepmother (who lives elsewhere) was there to supervise (long awful story, not to be told here).
Later this week David and I will meet my son for an evening meal before he heads back to California. I will see Richard and his family when I make a trip to San Diego this fall, where I will also link up with Mage over at Postcards. She says she is going to take me to see her Thrift Shop. Fun all around.
So far so good with the cortisone shot for the bursa in my right hip. I’ve slept well the past few nights. I also lost 2 more pounds this week. That’s a grand total of 30 pounds so far. I am now 10 pounds from my base goal. I intend to reset the goal and lose 20 more pounds after I reach base camp. I have my physical in May and hope to finally impress my GP with my progress. However, he never offers any praise, just a lecture on cabbage soup. Cabbage is okay, chocolate is better.
