I just purchased the Supreme Toning Tower. It has good reviews on Amazon and was about the price of a year at the gym without the travel and the locker rooms, so I'm giving it a go. It will be here Friday. This summer is not comfortable, I can't quit retaining water. I am fat. (Disclaimer: That is my description of me, it is in no way a judgment of anyone else.) I am going to make a sheet for my measurements that will be an outline of a body with lines across the parts to measure and fill in one a month. It's just time. I want to say I am doing it for my health, but the truth is I am just tired of dealing with the weight and the edema.

I am three weeks into my Creative Writing course and it is going well. The instructor(?) is finally interacting with us and she likes my prose and dialogue abilities. My flash fiction was more of a meandering so I will be redoing that, and my first draft of my short story needs more depth. I think the revisions are due Monday. 

Fourth of July weekend is coming up and the neighbors are already setting off cannons. I will be making more lemonade with a shot of tequila in the pitcher and staining my deck. I get to break out the new pressure washer and then I need to furnish it. Thanks to the guy putting the boards so that they smile instead of frown I have a couple of spots that hold water so I'm going to look into some kind of loose weave mat to put down, and the little table with two chairs. I may sit out there in the evening and write or draw because it will be shaded, that's nice for the hot days. I need to get the damn swing done and up this weekend, too. I'm tired of not being able to use it.

Thanks for letting me stop by and update everyone. I hope that I will be here more often again as I miss being part of your group.

I will keep you posted on the getting in shape. Fingers crossed that it works this time.

That all sounds good and I hope it is. Toss in an extra shot of Tequila for me!

Exercise and diet usually get the job done.  R&L ;-)

Hi nerd! I will up the tequila. :)

JMac, it's a sound theory but your head has to be in on the deal, too.

Thanks, Sheila!

The creative writing course sounds like a great endeavor. If you enjoy writing while on the deck, even more so.

I know about the loud noises. Will end up reassuring the about to turn one year old Bengal, that everything is safe. The knuckle heads in the neighborhood seem to not notice that send flaming rockets over the tops of trees is not very smart.

The local fire department has warned they will be out in force handing out substantial tickets. Yikes !

Good luck.

We don't get tickets handed out here and the shooter-offers do stop at the curfew, so there's that. It's just rough the night before I have to go back to work. :)
