Had the girls over today. There are so many in the church to invite over, I’ll have to do it again real soon before we all pile into the minivan and head South. It’s been a good day, except for the 5 oatmeal raisin cookies. I don’t count the mini cupcake. That was nothing.

The weight’s coming off though, faster than it did the first time. They say, “Sleep when the baby sleeps.” Well, that’s only with the first baby. I started sweeping leaves as soon as I got home. Ilene next door came over with her leaf blower and wiped out what would’ve taken me ten times longer. I invited her to eat with us today, but she had plans.

It’s a beautiful day. I was actually raking leaves in my bare arms.
