Yes, I have been on a low-fat diet for about a month and a half now.  I
have lost 25 pounds, but I really start craving FAT!!!  Isn't that gross???
 I would like to smear mayo all over a ripe tomato, sprinkle with salt and
pepper, put it on fresh white bread...heaven!

Your garden sounds like it is doing well. The weather here has been perfect
of late.  It is still a bit cool, most of my shady plants are still
blooming.  I have some wonderful new columbines this year that look like
vulgaris (but they aren't); one is dark purple and the other is crimson.  I
have a resident baby bunny that is NOT eating my plants.  I watched him eat
japanese witch grass last night!  I think I will go buy him a present of
corn, good weed eating bunny.  I have been spraying my plants with NIMBY
spray and so far, so good.  That spray makes me gasp when I inhale while
spraying so I can't imagine what it would be like to bite into a plant that
has been sprayed.

I'll be glad when school is out too.  Of course I have had my biggest
recruiting year.  Band has almost 100 kids and orchestra has over 40.  Of
course, I am going elsewhere next year, but it is nice to go out on a high
note.  Concerts are next week, my kids are going to be playing a lot of
swing charts.
