Weight Watchers

Before. This was taken in June 2010

After. Taken this morning


As some of you know I have been on weight watchers for the last five months and in that time I have lost nearly 44 lbs which is 3 stone 2 lb for the Irish and English folk. I have to say it has been the easiest thing I have done in losing weight and believe me I have been trying for years. Here is a before and after pictures. Still more to lose but well on my way to goal.

The other day I was in my craft room talking to my mom and dad on Skype. My little bundle of joy was curled up in the only area of sun in the room relaxing as usual.


Fall here in Maryland has been late this year but here are a few photos I took recently.

The field near our home

Deering Church

The Overlook (one of the most spectacular sights when you round the bend)

I believe Fall is truly here. The leaves have started to change and the weather is getting colder with a lot of rain. Fall always reminds me of New Hampshire and the good times we had there which now seems so long ago. here are some of my fall photos from way back when!!

Little Helper

As you can see, Cody thought I was taking too long to work on my latest project so he fell asleep on me on top of the craft table. Not a lot of work done after that

Excited and ready to go to work

Got tired

Ended up going to sleep for about 1/2 an hour

Some More Cody Photos

Here are some more photos of our cat Cody who as you can see, loves getting his photo taken.

Patapsco State Park

Went to the park today with some new friends and had a great afternoon. So glad to get out and take some photos. Eventually!!!

Lastest Visitor

The other day while I was looking out our back window I saw this owl in the tree. Amazing. i opened the door and hooted at it and of course it turned around to see what all the noise was just in time for me to take these few photos.

This was before the storm hit. Look at the sky!!

Love the raindrops after the storm on the flower.

Chris watching

Cody likes to bird watch from our back room but today he was watching Chris out in the garden. Couldn't see him well a few times so got up on his back legs and stayed there for a good minute. So funny to watch. would love to know what he is thinking as there seems to be a lot going on in that little head of his.

Good viewing area

Observing intensely

He will not get out of my sight. See I can still see Chris!!!

This is Ben, the fox who visits my mom and dad regularly. He will let you come as near as 10 feet ot him!!! Amazing. He was beautiful.

This was a rose blooming with frost on it.

Frost on a cobweb.

Frost on some leaves.
