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 for commenting on my blog "Sick of injuries and acceptance." That is exactly my problem. My mind can handle more activity than my body. LOL

I was talking to my aunt the other day and she never formally exercised so she's going to begin and she was saying how she's going to start out with getting her body used to exercise. With that in mind, I went on a slow walk during my lunch break and that felt good. I think I'm going to just get my body used to exercise to begin with and take it from there. Thank you for the support!

Hi, Chris! Thanks for stopping by and saying "hi". I actually didn't just stumble across your page... You were recommended as a spark friend by sparkpeople based on things we have in common. They were right! And no, that is not my garden...I sure wish it was! Sounds like you are being productive today. Way to go! I hope you have an on-track today. emoticon

I loved reading your SP! I can't wait until I can get out in my garden too. I am in Illinois, and it has been a bit chilly this week. I love the Be Still and Know That I Am God verse. Thanks for the reminder. I am always trying to fix things myself and forget that sometimes I just need to let Him take care of it. I hope you are outside enjoying the sunshine today!
