It’s so hot…even the corn…

hahahaha…I just had to whine about the heat.  Apparently the corn doesn’t even like the heat.  I just heard that last week was “the nasty week” for corn where the tassel and silks get together and fill the ear with little kernals…they don’t like it hot…86 degrees is the perfect temp for that activity.  My hanging impatiens were choking this morning when I pulled out of the drive, I stopped the car to give them a little drink..hopefully they will come back…another heat story from the redneck fishermen…The boys inadvertently left the liver they fished with on Monday in the back of “his” pickup truck…he couldn’t smell it – of course he can’t smell bad garbage when it is 68 degrees in the house – anyway…it was on the boat all day Monday – in the pickup bed Tues and Wed…the girls in the office went out to smoke and kept smelling something dead…they finally tracked it to “his” pickup…what a proud moment 🙂

Weight Watchers weigh in last night – got my 25 pound medallion for my ww keyring..I”m actually down 26 pounds.  Just now able to trust the program…kind of the beauty of ww.  In the beginning, I was still trying to think like a dieter…I’m not sure what happened to realize that as long as I follow the program, I will lose…it is so much easier…the Points Plus program involves free fruit and veggies…and 29 points plus points per day for me.  It also includes 49 points to be used anytime in the week.  I’ve been pretty rigid – only using my 29 points a day and feeling tense when I go over by 1 or 2…we talked about it last night in class and the instructor pointed out that one of the gals uses her 49 points every week and still loses 2 pounds …actually she said and “lives to tell about it” :).  I’ll get there one of these days.  My goal is 15 pounds more by Kate’s wedding in mid-Oct…I’m pretty confident I will make it – and hopefully more.. 

Until next time….

  4. OMG Nina!  26 Pounds?  That’s a lot!  I am so proud of you. It is so hard to make that kind of a choice and teach yourself to get into those habits. Where will Kate be getting married at?
