Year Three, Day 46: Nice People!

What a lovely day I am having so far!




I managed to wake up early enough to go next door to the running track. I walked 1.5 laps and ran .5 laps. Then I came home and had a good hoop workout!

I am working on engaging my abs when I hoop. I can really feel a difference.  This is Day 12.  I do so love progress! :)




And to add to  my pleasure, I stepped on the scale and did a happy dance! I am back down to 187.  I have been gaining and losing the same 3 pounds for several weeks now.

Let's just keep going down from here, I say!



I had a lovely bite of a gluten free cobbler my lovely roommate had made and told me I could sample. It was delish!  Then I set out for my 2 minute walk to my church office job. In the parking lot, I ran into one of the older men who heads and AA group at our church. He is very kind and friendly. We chat every week. He likes to sew as stress relief. He has made a purse for me, my mother and a wallet for my father!  This morning, he popped out of his car and handed me rose from his wife's garden.  I put it in a little vase by my Jesus sign in the office. Every time I look at it, I smile.

I sure do like nice people!


Speaking of which, "R" popped in a bit ago. I had not seen him for several weeks. I was missing him!

He had a big smile on his face. We chatted for a bit. He told me I looked very nice and trim! (Blush!)

Then he said, he had been thinking about me. He asked himself why he had not asked Zita out on a date yet. But then, he told himself she would probably say no because of the "age thing".  (He is 43, I am 55). But, he told me that he thinks I look much younger than my age (blush!)

So I told him that I was just going to give him my phone number. No harm in a bit of texting, said I. And I would certainly not say no to coffee!

There! Easy as pie! A nice, friendly, attractive young man.  Asked me in a very sweet way for my number. If only life was always this easy!

After he left, I must confess, I ran to the full length mirror to see if I did indeed look good today!

I think I do! (But it is probably all that blushing and smiling!)




I think I am just going to end right here!  On a happy note!


I wish you a happy Tuesday!  Full of kindness, joy and laughter!

Talk to you tomorrow...

Love,

Zita :)

Year Two, Day 288: I Found a Place!

This is truly amazing.

God is so good.

All the time!

I posted on Facebook my housing plight yesterday afternoon. And so many of my wonderful friends had helpful suggestions. Several offers for roommates came in.  But most of them so far from my work.

Then, I was heading home after teaching and just felt the need to sit and think.  Of course sitting and thinking go so much better with a cheeseburger on a rice cake, and what do you know...there I was getting off the bus in from of a McDonald's!

So I ordered a quarter pounder with cheese, ditched the bun and plopped it down between two rice cakes (I always carry emergency rice cakes in my bags these days).

I opened up Facebook and found a message from the pastor at my church job. She and her family have a room in their basement that they have been wanting to rent. But they were hesitant to put up an ad. They preferred knowing the person.

And here I am!  This is a blessing in so many ways! I will help them by paying rent and being a p…

Year Three, Day 83: Prednisone, Grumpy Doc and the Pentateuch!

I barely hacked at all last night.
Probably due to the Prednisone my doctor prescribed me. I was hoping I'd get a new doctor this time around at the clinic that accepts my Oregon Health Plan coverage. But there he was. Grumpy Doc.
But my appointment was pleasant. I greeted him and asked him how he was. He lightened up and even smiled during our visit. I wonder if he has a rough life.  It turns out we have the same "virus". Yes virus. I do not have a bacterial infection. My stats show me as a very healthy woman!  
BP: 100/70, Pulse 79, temp 96.7, Weight 182 lbs. (My weight loss has stalled. After I did the 10-Day Grain Detox, I weakened and ate a few meals with much rice.  I have SOOO missed rice. But since then, I've gained two pounds, so today I'm going back to no grains.  For the time being.  I think I will allow a bit of rice now and then, but I still am looking at 40 more pounds that I'd like to drop. So must be strong!)
Anyway...
I told Grumpy Doc I hav…

Year Two, Day 305: The Secret is Out!

I will never get used to losing an hour of sleep. But got of bed and headed to church did I.

And ironically, I took this photo. At the crossroads!  I was so tired, I did not realize there was a crosswalk in the background until just now.




After church today, I stopped for lunch.  Opened up Facebook. And lo and behold my daughter and son-in-law have announced their pregnancy!

I admit, I have known for a few weeks.

And I have been bursting with the news! She made me promise not to post on Facebook or blog about my first grandbaby until she and her husband felt ready to announce it to the world.

I am so happy!

Nothing like a new life to fill you with hope!

It was funny how she broke the news to me.

About 2 weeks ago, I get a text message.  She had sent me an ultrasound picture with the following message: "Honey Dog would like you to know that she is going to be a big sister."

I immediately texted her back:

"Honey Dog is pregnant?"

Then I stopped in my tracks. Just stood …
