Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity!
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

Thanks for your comments on the bed room re-do. Today I bought dark red lamp shades and they look better than the white did now. The decision on the quilt was mutual. I showed Arjay the picture and he said. "I like those colors." So I ordered it. I also ordered plain blue valances and put two on each rod. I like them nice and full. It had been 10 yrs since I changed out the quilt. Little things like that are a great way to re-decorate. All Arjay asked was that I not ask him to re-paint the room! He hates to paint.

I re-did my music room today by changing the futon cover and putting new curtains on our big window. What a difference that makes. So, for around $200.00 I have re-done 2 rooms. Not bad. I'll get those pictures up either tonight or tomorrow. This is so much fun! emoticon

Happy Easter my friend. May it be joyous and awesome. emoticon

Peter is a pro but he's doing this as a neighbour; he had a business for over 20 years and at his peak tended to 45 gardens a week, now he's retired it's down to 11 for pin money and to be of service to his friends and neighbours....such a kind man.

Happy Easter emoticon

Well, you got the exact "right" answer. Our minds must think alike. Some of the other guesses were hilarious, though. emoticon
