Be careful What you ask for

 I asked for nothing for my birthday. I turned 67 on July 7 and I already have everything I will ever need, and then some. I am so
lucky. There are lots of problems in life and I've had some of them. The diabetes is a pain in the neck but so far it has also been a boon to my weight problems. I have lost some weight and I'm not feeling so bloated and ugly. I wonder if the raised blood sugar was affecting a lot of my life. It must have been. Funny enough, I don't miss French Fries.

Anyway, he got me flowers. I love the colors. Summer and Fall combined.

The weather is also contributing to my well-being. It has been the coolest August in a long time. I went out at 11:00 this morning and there was a cool breeze. Lovely. I just want Autumn so badly that I can't wait. I began to go through my clothing using some of the steps in other blogs. I have eliminated any clothing that is not to my liking, be it fit or looks. I'm sure Goodwill is going to love me. I looked for gaps in my wardrobe but since I'm retired I can weat anything I like. So no gaps. That's good.

Cheyenne, my youngest child.

I have hopes of going out for walks this Fall with devil dog. I think we will both benefit and my clothes are fine for that.

I have discovered that the last time I went to the mall to shop was a couple of years ago. I've mostly shopped on the computer. But I don't get good ideas of what is being worn in this area if I don't go out and look. So on Friday, I am going to the mall to walk around and check out the Fall clothing in the stores. I
can't wait.

What lovely flowers. I like more natural arrangements like this one. Roses are just too formal and too overused, IMHO.
I am so glad you are felling better.
Cheyenne is a sweet looking dog. I cannot imagine life without dogs in it, it just wouldn't be as rich and fun.
