|Here is a collection of ruminations and whatnot.|
|I have a cat that likes to perch on the sink where I have a cup of water for him. The puppy is barking at him now but he's quit doing it. I think he's getting used to seeing the cat on the sink. It's not the sink he's in, he's on the ledge by the sink where I have his cup of water. I decided to give him an oasis of peace to drink water.
|It's a warm sunday morning. I've been listening to music online. I do not intend to go anywhere today. I'm thinking I'll surf the web and see what's happening in the world. The TV was on yesterday and they had the Olympics on. I wasn't attending but it was nice to see how people would come round from everywhere to see and compete.
|Today was an early morning I awoke at six and then had breakfast with my pups. I checked online for emails but not a lot of it was important. My stepfather had a call to make and he asked me to help as he is hard of hearing. So that was all accomplished.
Now, I've decided not job hunt anymore. I'm retired and self-employed as a writer. I can't handle the everyday things of a full time job, even the remote ones.
I'm going to rely on God's Providence to see me through to the future. I trust In Him Always.
|I have had a struggle with my weight. I had this ideal size that I thought was perfect. Magazines got me going to buy their fashions in a size that I would never be happy wearing. I gained weight after I took a job working at a desk. There was a lot of food available from the cafeteria, or people pitching in desserts from birthdays the day before, or merely bringing in brownies and pies. Then there were guests who would br gven a lunch at the conference room. Everyone would flock to the kitchen after their lunch was finished for there would be leftovers of salmon, rice and salads. And cookies, too.
So I gained weight and felt so sad about it. I joined WW and lost 20 lbs but that didn't last long. I gained it all back and then some. I tried other weight loss websites, but I wasn't disciplined. I joined a gym. I saw a woman at work tell about joining a clinic that espoused high fat low carb dieting. I tried it but it didn't make a difference. The worst thing is that they prescribed a diabetes medicine for me to keep me from absorbing sugar from my food. I had a bad ache in my back after I took the drug and that made me see reason. I realized that I was endangering my. health by doing this weight loss program. I never went back there.
Now, I'm down to eating normally, and not eating too much. I realized that God made me the way He wanted me to look so I should accept myself for what I am and look like. Eversince that realization I've become more comfortable in my body and my skin.
