Yesterday morning, before heading over to visit with Barb, I had a little visitor drop in. I asked her to make something for Nan to hang on her fridge so she got right to work. This is very new for Gwynn, as she is just going on 17 months.
I weighed Annie and she is down another 1/2 pound. She is rockin' her new bod and celebrating by napping in front of the fire. She's not on a diet but the dry food upstairs for Ray & Joe is put away now after breakfast and only brought out at dinner time. You see, Annie made it a personal challenge to see how much food she could sneak. Hence, the weight gain.

My orchid opened up to the warmth of the sun.
Thinking about how good food and friendship is so important.

Hope you had a 'smiley' day.
