I love yard sales. I do not go as often as I would like, but it is a fun adventure.

DSCN1394 I found this lovely shade for three dollars. Then a free base. It was at the end of the day and the lady was ready to close.

It is perfect for my 1906 house. I love the glow it gives out at night. Don’t you just love a bargain.

As some of you know I have been trying to lose weight and did lose 30 pounds and then just felt so much better, but then at Christmas I seem to lose my mind and started eating wrong again. So today is the first day of me taking better care of me. I will be under a doctors care. He has already given me some guide lines…so has my daughter Jenny and my dear friend Mary….so wish me luck or send up a prayer. I so need to do this as my body needs a friend in me. I have let myself down and my back is in trouble.

We are having heat here in Idaho, but nothing like what we are hearing on the news in other states. Stay cool, your friend, Mary

Had to add a picture of Finley…we seem to be calling him finn. My grandson Summit (age 11) baby sat for me when I went to the doctor Thursday…they were watching cartoons. Summit wanted him to spend the night, my sweet boy!!!!DSCN1438

I wish you great success in your weight loss. It's not an easy thing to do but just take it one day at a time. And remember if you don't take care of yourself you won't be here to take care of your family, or to see your sweet Annabelle grow up.

That's a really nice lampshade, Mary. You did get a bargain.

Here's wishing you luck in your efforts to lose weight. I need to do it too but don't seem to have the motivation to start. At least I am getting more physical exercise this year, since I started gardening again.
