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.

Thank you Chris for reading &
commenting on my MIL blog!
♥♥¸.•*´¨`*•. ¸♥¨`*•.¸♥.•*´¨`*•.¸♥
That is an incredible account of a cold and
nasty DIL for sure! .......... (I only wrote on
MIL's as one of those confided her MIL is
driving her NUTS and hubby won't stand up
to the woman! she asked me to write on the subject ........... BUT if I were going off on either one the DIL OR SIL ......
My DIL is a confessed ATHEIST and she actually TOLD
my Son he is to have NOTHING more to do with me .... (years ago) and she TOLD him to LEAVE his faith!!! (can't say I have
ever heard of anyone making this blog hateful demand but she did and she forbid me to EVER see their two girls. (Mind you---I was very meek around her and did not try to push my
beliefs on her ........... and my one SIL wrote out a LIST before his birthday ............ "What your Mom can get for me" ....... (gave to y daughter) ............. We had already been keeping them afloat financially speaking to say the least .............. and this was the last straw .................. I sent him a "nice" birthday card and wished him a great day on his 30th and BOTH have not spoken again except for me to get TOLD OFF!!! ............... I guess it shows people are people and some are loving and kind while others are just best ........... left to their own selfish ways! Long story short ............... we enjoy our own company cos the kids have decided after a trial we did not attend ......... that we were guilty of being crummy parents! ............... so be it .............. this life is short .......... and since I am a believer ......... the next one will be full of peace and love ..................... Thanks for sharing .............. emoticon ............. 2B

Permanent job would be nice...but the contract consulting thing just pays too well to pack it in yet. Besides, my company actively looks for a position for me. I still have to convince the client that I'm the guy for the job they have, though.

I recorded the ride in RunKeeper and then I did a screen grab of just that graph. Another place is to get that would be Google Maps. When you plot a Bicycle route (and I think walking too) in Google Maps, it gives you elevation. That would be the New Google Maps, not the Classic Google Maps.

Thanks for the bloglove on my bike tour post. All day long yesterday Himself and I kept saying "Wasn't that the best day?" We're definitely going to do it again.
