New Grand daughter
Shared Fitness Tracker
Wife, mother, grand mother, retired teacher of special needs students. Teacher of other teachers. Geek. Dog owner, dog lover. (Love cats too). Gardener. Love needle arts of all kinds. Live rural. Love to swim, I could be a fish. Looking forward to more time with my honey, my children, my grand daughters, and my dogs!!!!!!
I want to improve my health.
Adding major amounts of exercise. Mostly cardio, with some strength training. I have been treating high BP for years, so I let my Dr. have most input in exercise choices. I am watching total calories and portion size, and the timing of meals. No late dinners. Frequent small meals. And working on Clean Eating with Power Foods.
I live high in the hills of rural West Virginia, on a perpetually windy ridge. Usually peaceful, with lots of wildlife to watch. We are now 3 wars into the Marcellus gas well drilling on all sides of us. Non-stop semi rigs and tri-tandem dump trucks run about 20 hours a day on our barely 2 lane roads. Poor dogs are very stressed. The drivers so far have been respectful of local residents, not so in other areas.
I like to do creative things like sewing, knitting, crochet - any fiber arts. Love to garden, to can and freeze. Can't imagine life without a chest freezer. Love to make jewelry , and I retired Jan. 31st 2015. So after I work hard on rehabbing my shoulder, I hope to make jewelry as my retirement occupation.

Thanks for the comments on my blogs. I'm not able to visit my cousin, as they live in Oregon (to my Iowa). We keep up on Facebook. Their daughter is home from the hospital after being in there since just after Thanksgiving. She is on Bipap at home... I also appreciate the comments on my own little Peanut. I hadn't thought about him hearing and understanding (or not) about Delylah. Thanks, and have a Happy New Year!!
