Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other...Psalms 85: 10

I couldn't resist buying this green Hallmark frog today that was on the bottom of a toy box in a thrift store to remember my 69th birthday...The name of the little frog is "Lily Pond" made by "Bunnies By The Bay"

The poem inside the attached card says:

"Lily Pond has flirty eyes
beneath her floppy hat--
She's just a tad bit smitten
but she won't admit to that."

My husband took me out to Perkins to eat dinner on Monday for an early birthday celebration and the highlight of our good meal was to admire the terrace of beautiful flowers outside that ran the whole length of the restaurant.

I am happy to report I have lost 10 lbs so far since July 9th...My husband and I are still going for power walks twice daily to average 3 miles a day now and eating nutritious foods on a 1200 calorie diet. My husband lost 12 lbs. I'll admit it is very hard work to lose weight when you get older but the rewards of obtaining better health are worth it.

    I hope you had a very happy birthday. Congratulations on your weight loss, although I don't see that you have a pound to spare. This is such a whimsical shot, Andrea, showing how young at heart you are. Beautifully done.
