+ it was cold but not rainy for my Halloween visitors

+ I love the happiness on the wee children's faces and bewilderment on the very little visitors

+ the rest of the H. stuff is in the trash which is being picked up right now

+ found my Halloween decorations and got the porch ready in a half hour yesterday

+ Joanne and Heather came in for a short visit when they brought their kids around

+ my bruised wrist seems better today - seeing the doc re bloodwork and will get him to check it

+ the Mill accounting workload has eased considerably

+ garlic planting 'bee' for Saturday is a go!

+ dogs behaved like angels with all the visitors last night

+ feeling very ready to tackle weightloss more seriously

+ doc visit went well - great bloodwork and BP - gently chided me about weight gain

+ Donna is home again - I miss her

+ wrist and forearm bruising is from bloodwork, not a break - very strange reaction

+ took down the H. decorations and packed them away yesterday - time to think of Christmas lights

+ Leanna brought over her wee nephew for a visit - he loved the dogs and vice versa

+ weather is supposed to clear over the weekend - I'm tired of rain

I'm so grateful for this website. As of sat I'm no longer morbidly obese. A really big deal to me.
I'm grateful I've been able to spend more precious time with my grandbabies this month

My computer is fixed!!! New hardrive. It took such a long time. The Geek Squad had to have HP replace it and send it out. I missed 3fc.

- healthy day yesterday... two in a row... yay
- yesterday was the first day of peace... no election ads, thank goodness
- in two weeks 'the kids' will be here for a long weekend. Can't wait.
- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cell, music
- nice weather predicted
