I've been feeling a little down these past few days. Mostly, I've decided, I'm lonely. Actually, before I lament further about my lonliness, let me share with you, via words, the most beautiful scene out my office window. I am looking at a very large pine tree with the sun just coming up to the left of the tree. The sun's reflection on the tree is making the wood look red and the green of the needles on the tree are very deep. It is amazing. I've taken a picture and hope you can see what I see.

And now that some minutes have passed and the sun is higher in the sky, the color of the wood is no longer red.

Okay, now I feel I can ramble. I don't want to dwell on my lonliness. So, I'll try not to do so. I have just returned from the gym. I had a really good workout this morning. Did about 1/2 hour cardio and about 40 minutes of weight training with some cardio in between my sets. My trainer tells me that circuit training is a great way of losing weight. I suppose it would be if I didn't eat so much. I have such a sweet tooth. I love SUGAR. In all forms...except for ice cream. Ice cream is not my fav. I need to be able to chew on something. Ice Cream has no chew factor! I love Candy, Cookies, Cakes, Brownies...and the list goes on and on and on. If I didn't exercise I'd surely be a blimp. I hate exercising! No wonder I'm chunky. I love sugar and hate exercising. But I have the greatest friend in the world. She loves to exercise and drives me to the gym everyday. She calls me up in the early morning to say she's on her way to pick me up. We get to the gym by 5:30 and we're back by 6:45, now that she's back to teaching. During the summer we didn't have to be there until 6:30. But 5:30 is a killer! She doesn't mind though. She's as much addicted to exercising as I am to sweets. Go her! and I guess, Go me! thanks to her!!!

Exercising is hard, but don't you feel better afterwards? Good for you for going so early, I could never do it, I am not a morning person. You go girl.

I hate cake...
unless it's ice cream cake! :)
then I don't have to chew so much
(too much exercise)

Sorry you have been feeling lonely too.
Hope you feel better. :)

So what's in the tree? Looks like some little critter on one of the upper branches.
