You may think that this is just a bowl of

dead roses. Well in a way you may be right. But wait, these aren't just your average ordinary dead bunch of roses. This is a special potpourri that my sweet DH made out of the roses we have in our front yard that had lost their bloom. He deftly plucked off the mostly dead blooms and hunted up a really pretty dish to put them in. Isn't that thoughtful and sweet??? I thought so. Gotta just love a thoughtful guy! I'm glad he's mine. (Shades of mush *insert eyeroll*. Ack. Shhh...don't tell anyone. bwahahaha!

Today as i rode, I stopped to smell the roses,

or in my case, taketheshot. I took more but blogger won't upload them *unhappy face*. It was a beautiful overcast day, so it wasn't TOO hot and it was a cool ride. figurtively and literally. smirk. I learned a couple of things on this ride. 1. Its hard to stop, get off, and then get back on the bike. The body is not built for this. 2. Not stooping down to taketheshot without someone there to help me get back up *really unhappy face*. I used to be able to stoop IN HEELS and arise without fanfare. NOW. It feels like my legs are one long STICK. They just don't bend. Which I want to point out is really annoying. And 3. (and the most important one) I can bop to the music while riding. Very critical if you read 1 & 2. bwahahaha! So NOW I'm the picturetaking, singing, skinny bike babe. smirk! OHHHHHH!!! lost another .8 lbs. Tearing that scale UP. snort.

He's quite the poser!

I know you thought SHANE! but SURPRISE... this bird with the 'tude was giving me the nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh. Perched on the wire right over our drive way keeping his beady little eyes on ALL beings in his presence. Of course he knew he was pretty and cool, and quite the bird. He tracked us as I walked the dogs, the whole time I'm thinking just drop the leashes - run back in the house and grab your camera - because my feathered friend will have beat wings. sigh. BUT, as you can see, he watched and waited, and waited. ...until I finally got the mutts in the house, unleashed (poor muttlings didn't get their treat)LOL, grabbed the camera, remembered the card, (usually stashed in the hard drive). snort. Ran back outside. He graciously allowed me to take about 50 photos. Pretty bird!!! ACK.

Savoring the MOMENT baby......

I FINALLY f-i-n-a-l-l-y reached my goal of losing 10%. It was a LONG, that's l-o-n-g time coming. For sure. But the point is I GOT THERE!!!! Following the plan, albeit a tad bit losely (which could be the LONG LONG TIME) snort; and exercising. Still pedaling all over town and I must say I'm having a blast. I can entertain myself so that helps. bwahahaha! Anyway - no resting on my laurels, or semi chubby butt, because I still have more to go. Off to make a chunky monkey. YUM!

Cosmo Cricket Baby!

THIS toad...................

is worse than an ex-husband - he just won't go away!!! grrrr....he insists on swimming in my pool. And he's annoying which is also why I'm using a male preposition. I have thrown him out THREE TIMES! so far. Today he came flying through the door as I opened it and hopped right on in like he owned the place. But once he's IN, he can't figure out how to get OUT. While I was taking his photo, he kept giving me this puppy dog look, because NOW he wanted OUT. sigh. So after I made him sweat it out suffer for awhile taking his photo, I scooped him out with net and once again, flipped him as far as I could on the grass. NEXT time he's going in the canal behind the house. I think he'd be happier. I know I will because critters are ICKY. I get annoyed at fish when I'm swimming in the ocean. REALLY I do. They have alot of nerve being in my space when the ocean is mighty big. SO this goofy little frog is really pushing it hanging in my pool. He probably peed in it too. SIGH!
