I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 64 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (47 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins
(another one on the way!).
I have a beautiful second home/
www.jasminevilla.com
I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    The cookie crust is the cream cheese cookie recipe from lowcarbyum.com with my tweak on sweetener being 1 packet of Splenda and 3 drops of stevia glycerite or other liquid stevia. I made my own frosting with homemade whip blended with cream cheese

    I agree, Liz, that wind farms aren't noisy. I think they're more concerned with the "busyness" and feel that the sight of the windmills would be disruptive to people meditating. It will be interesting to see what they decide, although it could take many years before they're ready to build more than this first temple.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. The struggle continues, but it sure is easier when you have encouragement from friends and you have been with me from the very beginning!

    I forgot to tell you that we bought tours for major attractions to avoid the lines or tickets in advance we never stood in line for any thing.
    It was great!
