A good time was had by all. We fed crackers to the giraffes (like Rye-Krisp, except for animals!) and had ice cream ourselves -- and a carousel ride! I have color in my face!!
The giraffe pair we saw yesterday are very young (more) and not nearly as large as those pictured yesterday -- just as fascinating, though. That 18-inch, black tongue is something else! It was very cool to be so up close and personal!
Everyone came over and we grilled turkey burgers (WW recipe) and zucchini last night and had strawberry pie (WW recipe) with fresh berries and it just couldn't have been a better day. Just what I needed.
BTW, the moronic mantra running rampant through Long Island WW meetings appears to work by osmosis, since I lost a solid 2 pounds last week, bringing my total to just over 7. You know what? I can tell. Even that relatively small amount has made a difference. Just a few more and I will not have to be quite so choosy every morning, standing in the doorway of my closet, wondering about which pants I should wear (stretchy, elastic, drawstring... what kind of day is it today?). OMG, one of the things I found in my cleaning/purging/organizing the other day is my original WW Lifetime Membership card -- I even still had the last few meeting card thingies from way back when (I tossed 'em, thank you very much).
; ) After today, I have four days off. There will be more cleaning/purging/organizing. I'm on a roll now! I'll have some fun, too -- and as Bob is my witness, there will be knitting!
