Monday reflections......................

Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched...
I looked up and this little guy was watching me...

I think this dill is on steroids...

My bucket of jew is growing and blooming


this a different few from my stump garden...
the dogs like to eat the leaves that come out...



I know they are weeds but I have always loved them...




my glads are getting tall this year...
can't wait for them to bloom....





My niece went to her Jr. Prom on Saturday...
aren't their flowers pretty.....
I had a nice weekend...even though we had all the rain
and thunderstorms...nice time out with my husband on Friday...
got to go to the movies on Sunday with my best friend from
high school, her daughter, her son's girlfriend, my daughter and
my daughter in law...we went to see the new Matthew McConaughey Movie
It was so good.....you laugh....you cry.....you laugh....
we really enjoyed it.....and I was very good...I sliced up and apple
and took it with me...and a bottle water....my daughter said she thinks
I am the first person ever to sneak an apple into a theater....hamburgers...
candy...maybe but health food...not...
well I have lost 20 lbs. ....with more to go and I am changing
my eating habits...I'm finding I can do well if I just plan
everything out....I'm learning portion control....
do you have tricks you use to stay eating
healthy in this food obsessed world??????
Love ya,
Deb

That's some of the tallest dill I have ever seen. Do you have any caterpillars on it? The swallowtails like it a lot.

your garden is as usual- it's just great. No matter in what shape. We love them. They are nature, a gift from God.

And i'm glad to hear you had enjoyed your weekend and had so much fun, dear!

Hi Deb,

Good for you bring the apple! Today I decided enough is enough and pulled out my WW books and made a grocery list of good foods and low point treats. Time for me to start lossing again!

We need the rain so I hope we get some. Seems we all have had some crazy weather!

hugs, Linda

I'm waiting on the rain right this very minute. Should be here soon(minus lighting I hope).
Everything looks beautiful, but especially the prom flowers!
Congratulations on the weight loss.

Have a great day.
