I am happy to report that I have now lost 10.5 pounds...and yes, that .5 is very important!! I am learning to eat healthy and to eat good portions. I am learning to exercise each day. Right now I am doing that by walking but I'm thinking about joining a local gym. I would love to swim and do water aerobics and I would also like to do some strength training.
The past three weeks have been so pleasant as far as the weather goes. Temperatures in the 70's during the day, 50's at night, and low humidity. We haven't had to run the a/c much this September!
On September 9, we had my mom's memorial service in NJ. It was a bittersweet time but it turned out really lovely. Here's a picture of me and my siblings after the service:
My brother read a psalm and Michael sang "Amazing Grace" and was able to share the gospel with those that attended. Afterward, just our family went out to eat together. Then Michael and I had to drive back to VA.
I know everyone says this all the time but it is hard to believe that September is almost over. Seriously, this month went by so fast. The leaves on some trees are just starting to change and I'm looking forward to October when they will be in all their glory! Our hummingbirds are still coming to the feeders but less and less frequently. I think they will be moving on soon.
I am enjoying swapping post cards and other items over on swap-bot.com. I will post about it soon!!
