Saturday morning miscellany


Thought I needed to spice up the blog with a new picture, so here’s my favorite coffee cup. It’s one of my favorite phrases. Sometimes I take it to work and flash it at people who make inane comments. I don’t even have to look up.

I entered Jason Evans “Halo” Short Fiction Contest . I’m entry #8. Let me know what you think and if you like it be sure to vote for me. I’m not sure how you do that, but do it anyway.

I have a “happy” problem. I lost another 12 pounds (down 33 pounds so far) since I bought all my new clothes last year. The skirts still look fine on me, but the pants are literally falling off. Oh, Happy Day! I have another 10 pounds to lose to reach my ideal weight, so I think I’ll run to Macy’s and see what’s on the super sale rack to tide me over. If I just buy a couple of basic pairs that should see me through.

It’s a gray day in the beautiful PNW, but somehow my mood is sunny with clear blue skies.

Hey Anti-Wife--First of all, I read your story, it was smashing!(I commented over there) Give us more, sister. And congrats on the weight loss, that's so hard and you're doing it so well. And finally I dig the mug and the image of you thrusting it at people without looking up is too much.

Thanks Kathie!

The mug can be quite startling if used properly.

The very best reason for saying "I have nothing to wear!"

The Anti-Wife said...

Amen, Bernita. Amen!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Congrats on an excuse to shop! Weight loss isn't easy.

Congrats on the weight loss. I'm inspired - it can be done! I so want to be where you are now. I was doing well, lost about 20, went back to teaching full time the first half of this year and regained half. Now I have to summon the determination to get on track again.

Do you have a secret for magical weight loss that doesn't involve diet and exercise? No? Well, it was worth a shot...
