My Desk View of Dogs in Snow

 Raffle and Oreo are out playing in the snow this morning while I write. They actually do more guarding than playing, now that they are 10 years old. They have been watching that empty alley off and on for half an hour. No one has come down it, but if they do, the dogs tell them they should turn around and go back because this is THEIR alley!

I put on ten pounds over the holidays and weighed in at 158.8 this morning. Eep! I had promised myself to never again weigh more than 150, so it's time to crack down and lose these extra ten pounds in the next two weeks. Of course, I went hog wild at the New Year's Eve party I attended last night. I had lasagna, chicken enchilada casserole, chocolate chip cookies, and three servings of pineapple upside down cake! Yum! LOL!

I ate leftover blueberry pancakes just now, too, with cheese and mango syrup. But, starting right this minute, I am back on the Scarsdale Medical Diet until I weigh in at less than 150 pounds once again.
