My plateau on my Weight Watchers program continues, as I was up a pound today. This reflects more about my exercise pattern than about
my eating pattern. This particular stasis has lasted now about 6 weeks. I am experienced with such stases, and know I will work through this one.
I got an encouraging e-mail from my physician yesterday. The ingredient that was a bit low proved to be an even smaller bit low on re-testing. I still will go to a specialist later this month to sort out the whys and whethers.
We took Beatrice for a walk this afternoon. We saw a boy grasping a snapping turtle. He advised that the turtle had been staying on the surface for some days. He was worried that the turtle did not feel well. I advised him that snapping turtles can do a good bit of damage
with their bite. The boy let the turtle slip into the water, but later, I saw he and his friends hunting for the turtle. The turtle appeared to be
a medium-sized alligator snapping turtle, which may be older than each of the boys. On our walk, we also saw a blue jay atop a chimney and a rabbit in our front yard.
In our back yard, lots of things are in bloom. The surprise bloom this Autumn is the little strand of milkweed which popped up,
a year after the prior planting died. I love milkweed. We did not draw many monarchs this year, but I saw lots of them yesterday at Loy Lake in Denison.
