About Me

My photo
I grew up in a family of Southern storytellers. Back in 2004, I started Whole Bean to continue the tradition in a new medium. Over the years, I've written about families and friends, peculiar situations, extended road trips, recalcitrant home appliances, and many things for which I'm truly grateful. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Off for another walk! This has been interesting...after I started Weight Watchers in October, I successfully took myself to my goal weight by losing 35 pounds, but I knew that I still needed to exercise regularly. The solution was right in front of me, so I've taken advantage of it and have begun some serious walking. I feel great.

My friends at FSG have also re-evaulated their lifestyles and have begun using The Maker's Diet. It seems like we're now all tuned into some kind of "health frequency", and the results have been very positive.

Wow, what a birthday party! Karen surprised me by inviting a whole bunch of my nearest and dearest friends to the house on Saturday for a surprise party to celebrate my 50th birthday. To say that I had fun would be an understatement -- it was great to have all these people who mean so much to me in one place. I sincerely hope that if you were one of the people there, that you had as good a time as I did. Thanks again to everyone who helped, attended, sang show tunes, told tall tales, and in general gave me the best birthday I've ever had. I will never forget it! =:)
