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.

Here in Connecticut we are buried in snow--for the 5th weekend! I love your phlox background picture. Is that your garden/ Now in a condo I have a tiny garden in the front. I miss all my flower beds. But condo living is best for us at this stage. And I love your "I hate snow" animal pictures. I actually don't mind snow-- growing up near Buffalo, NY made me immune to it. Outside our condo right now it is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for commenting on my blog about coconut oil. Some of my friends are eating it like crazy. I don't know if it is healthy or not. that is why I researched it. Dr. Mercola seems to be pushing it. Have a great day. Where are you located?
