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!

Current Status:
EABL81 worked in the students' garden again this evening. It's coming along really well, and they've made several deliveries to the local food kitchen and meals on wheels providers.

Personal Information:
I'm a 62 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:
"Hope is the thing with feathers."

Thanks for the music. It was another beautiful day here. Sat out on the back porch with my friend for awhile this afternoon. Wish it could stay this nice. I hear the humidity will be back this week.
Have a great week!

Thanks so much for the fruit smoothie goodie. Hope you don't mind that I added a little "extra" to it! LOL

I loved your story about your kitty. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful memory. Animals sense a lot more them we realize. Can't imagine not having a furry friend or two or more. lol

The storm is headed for the FL East Coast and NC. I'm on the West Coast (Gulf Coast) fortunately - for me. Feel bad for those people on the East side.
