We are deep in the "June Gloom" weather, which means the overcast skies today are reaching clear to the deserts. Yesterday, the sun came out at 5:50 p.m. I really don't mind it, because within 30 days we'll be having temps in the 90s. Ugh.

I am more in love than ever with the walking shoes I bought at the New World Fair. I have literally walked for 4-5 hours on three different outings, and my feet never hurt. Amazing. Now if I could only afford more of them!

The good part of having lost 50 lbs? I've lost three sizes on the bottom and two and a half sizes on the top. Yes, two and a half sizes. In one size, most of the tops are too big, and in the next smaller size, most of the tops are too small. I need to lose maybe 15 more lbs. to fit comfortably into all of the smaller size. Sigh. The bad part? Having to buy a lot of new clothes. The good part of the bad part? Shopping is a little more fun now.

Only three weeks to the Andre Rieu concert! I can't wait. Wearing a new "skinny" top, too, heh. Even found a restaurant right on the concert premises that has tons of D-friendly items, including lobster, my very favorite of all foods. Should I? Why the heck not! ;-) Guilt-free, if not cheap.

Back to work tomorrow. Sigh.
