Nice Weekend...

Hey guys!! Have those of you in the east been enjoying the warm summer weather as much as I have? Don't think we are going to have a spring here in West Virginia. It's just moving from winter into summer. We had snow last Wednesday and by Friday it was 86. This old broad ain't complainin' at all.

New Jersey daughter and her family came to visit this weekend and just left this morning to head back home. I had a wonderful visit and hated to see them go, but that's always going to be the case.

We went to the Falls of Hills Creak yesterday and I am so out of shape I only went half way down. Was hard to get around all evening after that. Will have to work on my stamina now that the weather is better. I'll have pics for you later in the week cause I forgot to take my camera but Linda took hers and will email me the pics. There has been so much rain lately that the falls were awesome this time. Instead of the trickle last summer the water was roaring.

We went to Food and Friends Saturday night for supper and I over did it a little but it had been so long since I had gone out to dinner I just wanted something special. They do have a lighter fare on their menu but I wanted to try something that I hadn't had before and I got their stuffed chicken breast. You'll have to check out their menu and see all the scrumptious stuff they offer, or maybe not because it'll make you drool. But, hey, I worked it off at the falls the next day so I hope that compensated for it. At least now that I know how to eat and have been at this for almost 2 years I'm sure if I gained anything I will be able to get it off soon. It's also really cool that I don't eat nearly as much as I used to even when I over indulge. It amazes my daughter that I only eat half my meals now and am full. She remembers the old me that used to eat everything that was put in front of me.

Hope your weekend was a wonderful as mine and hope you have a great week.

Glad you had a great weekend! I know in a previous post you wwere looking for some company. Sounds like you got some exercise in, so the eating was OK! We all need to have something we "want" every now and then. Have a great week!

What a lovely weekend you had. It's always wonderful for the kids to visit, isn't it? Everyone has a little indulgences once in a while, it won't hurt. You worked it off at the Falls, I bet. If we couldn't enjoy a little something special every now and then, we'd probably give up. I know I would.

WE had a nice semiwarm weekend here in the Denver area. And this morning I woke up to 4 inches of heavy wet snow on my car. Unbelievable! Vee at www.veegetting

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I'm so glad that you were able to have some company! I know you've been itching to have company!

Glad you had a great visit!

I'm lucky in that the food menu didn't include my faves. I'd have gone for that pecan crusted chicken in a heartbeat though. :)

Sounds like you had an awesome weekend!

I have been in the dumps here. We were planning on going to Kanawha Falls this weekend to hike, fish and enjoy a pic nic lunch. Well DH came home sick and we did not get the chance to go and enjoy the weather at all.

So I say around in the dumps and ate all weekend I think. grrrr

But I am back in a cheery mood and ready to get back at it!

Have a great week!
