Fading into Sunshine

An old, log barn with a modern addition.

Himself: Had a really good day.

Herself: Yup, three major things are a bit much for someone who has been sitting on her rear doing nothing for six-some weeks. Now I am a veggie

Food: Weight Watchers Point Plan: Half a Subway sandwich is 9 points. We have about 35 extra points a week, and we ate into them yesterday. Chocolate chip cookies, hot from the oven and melting their chocolate in the bags were 3 points each.

I’ve been mulling over various topics I could write about for class. This morning, I was reminded that it’s a real pain to have no short term memory. Now can’t remember any of these brilliant ideas I thought of yesterday…and I had a couple of brilliant ideas. Or wafts of ideas.

Please, take just a moment to leave me a note. I really appreciate notes.
