What a spring this has been with our daughter's wedding two weeks ago and our grandson's high school graduation last week.
Wonderful time with family and friends. In just under a month we leave on a month-long driving vacation to visit our daughter and her family in Calgary.

What a spring this has been with our daughter's wedding two weeks ago and our grandson's high school graduation last week.
Wonderful time with family and friends. In just under a month we leave on a month-long driving vacation to visit our daughter and her family in Calgary. I've never driven across Canada before, and am very excited about the trip. There are a lot of places we want to visit, especially a number of forts and heritage museums as we are both very interested in Canadian history.

Before that, though, there is a lot of gardening to be done, which I really enjoy.

I've joined the 5% summer challenge, and look forward to meeting some new Spark Friends.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk, but because I will be spending hours every fine day working in the garden, and because of several trips coming up, I have extended the date on which I hope to complete the walk to December 31/14 instead of my original August 31 date. I'm about 100 miles south of the Scottish border now.

I've also re-calculated my weight loss goals. I have always been too optimistic about how much weight I could lose in a given time. My new goal is to lose 5 lbs. every 2 months. If I can do that, I will reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. That is my goal.

The absolutely best thing is that I'm still here, 3+ years after joining Spark People, i have never stuck with any program this long, and I expect to keep Sparking for the rest of my life.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and are supportive of the ups and downs of our lives. A very sincere thank you.

The day after I took the pick of the baby Sparrow, the bird flew off. The Mom was still enticing the little one with food though. Isn't that just like a kid? lol
When Dennis and I went to Yellowstone, we saw a lot of Bison. That is in Wyoming. Are you going there? It's beautiful.

I thought of you today. We had to pick up our NY son because he wanted to be here. His sister has to do summer school an d the family are all stressed out. GS is 16 and he is now over 6'4" and he is living in the camper. Our house will bust at the seams some days.
We drove through Gorham. NH an d the antique cars were just fabulous. Very old ones. The on es we love . We picked up GS and as we went back the pace was way too crowded so we came home. We see it almost every year , not this time. We might go to Boothbay with GS to see the cars, HUGS Thanks for comments on trees. Wise to plant them. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
