As expected, Saturday was a bit of a whirlwind.
My results at Weight Watchers were about what I expected I gain 1.8 pounds. I knew I was off track and I now I get to work on fixing it! I was disappointed, but it’s much easier to accept a gain when you have an idea that it will happen. I get frustrated on the weeks when I’ve been SO good and I get a gain. Hey, it gives me another project to work on…Like I need another!! 😉
After WW, Gail, Alice and I headed to breakfast, our last one for quite some time. They’re off to Maine early this morning and won’t be home until October. Thank goodness we’ve gotten the whole Skype thing worked out. We’re trying to figure out a way for me to get a short visit up there at some point, but it’s still a work in progress.
Breakfast was very satisfying…
Big old bowl of oatmeal at the diner. I asked for cinnamon. Unfortunately they gave me cinnamon sugar. Guess I need to be more specific. It was good anyway!
Lunch was planned as a birthday celebration (another one?!) for Ralph’s Aunt Marie.
Isn’t she beautiful!! She is such a sweetheart, too. I keep telling Ralph that when I got him, I got a pretty terrific family to go along with him. Great gift!
Family shot…Ralph, Maddie, Me, George and Aunt Marie in the seat of honor!
Oh yes, the food…Finally found something I really like at this restaurant…the Greek Salad.
So delicious. I love that I figured out to ask for grilled Portobello mushroom on it. This was huge. I actually had to take part home. (That may have been due to the 2 pieces of bread I had while waiting…) I didn’t take a photo of my piece of birthday cake, but that was because I forgot, not because I was hiding it.
Late afternoon we went to a barbecue to see some friends. It was a very nice time, mainly because there weren’t a lot of people there. Some we knew and a few new people. Got some of the lowdown on the wedding we’ll be going to in August. Not being a huge crowd, we actually got to get to know the new people. I like that. There were actually connections to other people we know. Truly a small world. We sat and talked until about 10pm. I never ate a thing…still too full from lunch, just kept the iced tea coming. A very enjoyable evening.
It’s a drizzly Sunday Morning now…Not sure what the day will hold. Got my fingers on a book I’ve been wanting to read…Snagged it from Kristen…
Kristen is becoming my Young Adult fiction book connection. She’s the reason I got to read The Hunger Games. Thanks, Kristen! 😉
On such a dreary day, I’d like to snuggle with my book and a cup of tea. That won’t likely happen, but hopefully I’ll get some reading in.
