Beaver sighting

Today todd and I went for a walk on the canal. It was so cool. As we were walking, we heard a loud noise behind us. We turned....and looked into the water, because the last noise we heard was a loud splash. We were so shocked and awed to see a nice sized beaver swimming along side us in the water. We walked along the towpath....watching this beaver. The beaver started to swim erratically....and then ducked under the water. We were looking for him..and out of the corner of my eye I saw the beaver up river. I quickly jogged up and followed him some more. He came up on the land and tried to hide. We saw him hiding..looked at him and then turned around and walked back the way we came. It was truely a blessing to see.

On the way home I decided to clock how far I jogged the other day. I jiggity jogged 2.4 miles. That's not bad for a recovering fatty! :-)

So far today, eating has been going well. I've got 16 points left...and I'll use one of those for my snack of grapes. That will leave me 15 points.......and I know that mom is having spaghetti tonight for dinner. YUM! I know it won't be whole wheat I make at home...but I'll still eat it...just watching my portion size!
