chris's garden

I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands ...

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 80 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

Thanks so much for the massage goodie. I can't believe I am back on SPARKS and trying to loss the weight once again. I am grateful to be able to take walks again. Once I retire I will also need to have additional work. My goal before the end of the year is to get all of my extra poundage back off. Hope you have a great day!

I am back on after my hip joint replacement surgery. I am going to try hard to get my weight back under control. Doing physical therapy helps to get me moving again. Love your patriotic site!

Thank you for commenting on my blog. My father's family is from Chicago, now most of them are in Indiana. I love gardening and being outside also, hate winter. Hope your garden dries out some so you can work on it.
Hope you don't mind, I added you as a friend.

Have a wonderful day!!!!
