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."

What's wrong with your cats? I didn't see you mention this anywhere.

Sadly, the dim sum was extremely bland, sauceless and spiceless and not at all how I remembered it. I was so looking forward to it! Oh well. At least I've found a decent sushi place near where I live.

In my work life, paperwork was a daily event for me too. Promises came from the government all the time that paperwork would be cut and we would be able to spend more time working with kids. I'm fairly sure every change made produced more paperwork, never less. So don't miss it (I'm sure you're shocked to hear that -- LOL).

I hope you can feel caught up soon!!

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. So far I have three winter scenes and I do believe I should stop with that particular nonsense. Maybe I'll take up Spring next and eventually I'll have paintings for every season.

I hope you aren't planning to work too hard this weekend and you have something fun planned!!
