Livin' the good life!

I came to SparkPeople to turn things around in my life. As I get closer to retirement, I've vowed that a rocking chair is not in my future! And it's working - after a year, I've shed the pounds, and have a much healthier outlook on life. Doesn't get much better than that!

Personal Information:
I'm a 64 year old biologist, currently living in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of SW VA. I became a biologist because I have a deep appreciation and concern for all of the beautiful creatures with whom we share our planet, but especially birds. I enjoy getting outside, hiking, bird watching, and hand crafts. Luckily for me, I live in the perfect spot to indulge in all of the above. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the local foods movement. I guess you could say that I have a long history of tree-hugging!

Other Information:
"Follow this highway
Through the canyon where the red rocks glow.
Wind through the forest.
Trace the rim edge where the pine trees grow.
And, this is what I know

Gonna make this my home."

Tony is really smart. I'm sure that's why he's achieved domination at this house.

Thanks for the blue ribbon. I hope you're doing well today! I'm glad to hear you only have a couple of weeks of classes left. I'm sure you can't wait!
I'm still on track. I can hardly believe it. Good thing there wasn't any chocolate in the house when the garage called with my total. I hope you're hanging in there too.
The quilt show starts at the end of this month and runs through the first week of May. I just have one more label to sew on and I'm ready for a new project.

Oh, I'm so glad Tigger is doing much better...and of course, Bear too! It's just so terribly upsetting when they're sick :(
I hope further tests come back good too.

I'm having to wean mine off of the crunchies (Blue) they love so much. It's what I was leaving out for them all day when I'm gone. But Louie just can't keep it down and Lily just doesn't need anything more to add to her chubby self! I give them a bit in the evening when his digestive system seems to work better and I can make sure he's not wolfing it down in one gulp!

As you said...they are complicated critters! But can we imagine life without them ;)
Hugs to you 3 from us.

OH, poor things! I'll be waiting for the results on Tigger...so upsetting when they're sick and yes, VERY expensive!

L&L are just about due for their annual so I may get Louie another shot like you did with Bear. I'm just not sure if it really helps L. Hard to say if he's better...he still pulls out fur on his little legs, but doesn't seem as much. His belly seems to be growing some fuzz and maybe not it's not as pink, but again - maybe we're all just getting used to it. He's not miserable though, so that's a good thing.

Hugs to you 3 from us -
N, L&L emoticon
