Saturday was beautiful. I did little all day. I took Sheba for two walks in the morning and a long. lovely one in the afternoon, and I began a book. I did not have the energy for working on my curtain or in the yard. I fell comfortably into a long slow lazy day.
But I did enjoy cutting up my Aeroplan VISA card. To do that meant getting online and changing all the automatic payments I had attached to it and switching to my new “no annual fee” card.
We’re supposed to have showers today. It’s cloudy. I’ve lit the fire and I’ll soon get on with my book—A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. It’s a critical success and I’m loving it, so I’ll do more reading today and leave working on the curtain until the sun returns tomorrow.
I had a hunch, so I got on the scales this morning … and hooray! One seventy-five. I’m down thirty-seven pounds. I’ve only five pounds left to lose and that’ll happen in another two weeks. It’s said it takes ninety days to break an addiction, and sugar is a powerful compulsion. This coming Tuesday, I’ll mark fourth months of life without sugar. There is going back, however, and I plan to do it—just not to excess.
Entomologists in Washington State captured the first live Asian Giant Hornet last week after seven credible sightings in Blaine, Washington, a small town on the U.S/Canadian border, just south of Vancouver. They tried to attach a tiny tracking devise to the captured Hornet, but it came off. They had hoped to trace the tag to the nest that they are certain is in the area. How’s your 2020 going?
