Happy Saturday!

I hope everyone out there in internet land is having a wonderful Saturday! We are having a lazy Saturday here in Maine. The temperature is cool, it is raining and overcast. We can't decide exactly what to do today. Dick is working in his office and I am well, doing what I do best....haha. I have the washing machine going and soon the dryer will be cranked up for its part of the job. I mowed the grass, or should I say leaves and pine straw, yesterday. It took me twice as long to do it because first I had to use the blower to blow away some of the leaves and then I had to keep overlapping the places I mowed so I could get all the remaining leaves and pine straw cut up finely. The yard looked good until this morning. Overnight a whole new layer of leaves landed on it. Oh well........I will take care of it next week. Not too many weeks left to mow.

Today is Homecoming at NC State. Chris and Linley are excited as usual. I can remember going to homecoming at GA Tech with Dick. Big schools are a lot more fun at homecoming than small schools. I don't even remember homecoming at Georgia College. I know they will have a good time.

Julianne is in Greenville, NC visiting her friend Angie (Angie Pangie as I like to call her!) Angie Pangie attends East Carolina University. Julianne is going to the football game with her. She called earlier and they were on their way to meet Angie Pangie's parents to tailgate. Sounds like fun to me! Maybe Dick and I can go to NC today and do that. Hmmmmmmmm.......guess not.

Jamie and Lesley went to the Symphony last night. He wrote in his blog that he was not particularly looking forward to it. However when we talked to him this morning, he couldn't say enough about it. He had a great time. Today they are watching the University of Kentucky play football.

So......did you notice the pumpkin on the side of my blog? Most of you already know that I have been dieting. Not fun..... But it was time and I have been working on it. I have lost 31 pounds so far with lots more to go. But I plan to keep on working on it. Even with the holidays coming up. So I will keep you all updated on the amount I have lost. I will say that I have gone down 2 pant sizes and am just about to need the next size down. I have gone down 3 sizes in shirts. Of course the top shrinks faster than the hips, but they are all on their way down. It feels good.

That's about all I have to tell you about right now. Fear not! I will talk to you later! Tootles
