FROM THE VALLEY

Back to Spark once again...spent the winter on the road so to speak traveling with friends..Dec thru Feb; .and ended up eating out way way too much..hated that. REally! I like to have a small kitchen available when traveling or a microwave..something! we had nothing.. so returned home with many digestive issues..I mean I try to eat healthy but gee..three months of eating out; it's difficult. So was on nasty medications for awhile and eating very bland foods; was just getting over that, then ...
Back to Spark once again...spent the winter on the road so to speak traveling with friends..Dec thru Feb; .and ended up eating out way way too much..hated that. REally! I like to have a small kitchen available when traveling or a microwave..something! we had nothing.. so returned home with many digestive issues..I mean I try to eat healthy but gee..three months of eating out; it's difficult. So was on nasty medications for awhile and eating very bland foods; was just getting over that, then got some kind of flu thing even though I had that flu shot and that set me back..Felt I was housebound, coughing sneezing, exhausted for most of March. Did lose weight as I just wasn't hungry, nor up to go shopping. Kept going to the nearest Kwik Trip..gas station/grocery for fruit, juice, bread, the basics. Friends brought home made soups.
But now finally back at it! perform with an over 55 group singing dancing for non profits to raise money for them; lots of silliness. getting back to working out with my trainer, walking lots more, back to yoga, may return to church choir. Just stopped everything as I had no energy and the coughing just did me in.
still with my two cats.. one having thyroid surgery Monday as she eats and eats and is losing weight. hope all goes well.
Looking forward to getting out to plant flowers, veggies, and 'playing' in the dirt. Getting a young landscaper to help me re-do the backyard just don't have it in me do all that I want to have done out there this spring.

So glad you liked Jeanne Robertson. My favorite is also when she sent "left brain" to the grocery store.

Have a great day!

We're supposed to have rain off and on into Monday so won't be doing much walking outside. Fall and spring and my two favorite times to walk....the cool weather, the color of the leaves and in spring, the plants all coming back to life!.

Have a great day!!!! Hug those kitties for me.
