I had a busy weekend, mainly around the house. Cleaned the basement (among other things) which is always the last area to get attention. I can actually see my desk now! It's amazing!

Last night I went out to do some much needed weeding in the gardens. I didn't quite finish - it was getting late and I was getting tired of fending off mosquitos.

Things are still growing though. I swear, every time I look at these plants they are bigger...

But the exciting bit here...If you look a little closer at the Tomatillo....

Aren't they neat looking? Seriously, I think that's why I grow them. They're just so pretty!

And also: Is this not the cutest thing? Well...besides my cats of course...

Beck Diet Progress
Friday, I did read the Day 10 task - Setting reasonable goals. Dr. Beck recommends concentrating on 5 lbs at a time, and celebrating each 5 lb loss. No argument from me. If I can actually lose 5 lbs, I will be thrilled.

Then the weekend got away from me as usual.

Back on track today, with Day 11 which involves monitoring your hunger. This task is designed to help you learn to recognize the difference between actual hunger, a desire to eat, and cravings. Unfortunately, I do tend to read these things at the end of the day when I am all finished with eating. So, I will have to work through this exercise tomorrow.

Awww - the fawn is adorable! I haven't seen any around here. We did see a couple of geese taking flying lessons on the highway the other day. Good thing hubby was paying attention, and there was very little traffic. They tuckered out after flying really low in front of us and landed on the highway, then eventually waddled off to the side. Didn't have my camera in hand, unfortunately.

love the little polka dotted guy! Did your cats see them? :-)
I just have ducks and squirrels in my 'hood. Lots and lots of dumb little squirrels...

Missicat - the cats were inside when I took the deer photos. Had they been out, I'm sure they would have been fascinated; they do seem to find it interesting when the deer are around.

Look at you with your beautiful plants and wildlife! What a great setting and it looks very peaceful too.

The tomatillos look so neat! I didn't know they looked like that.
