My passion is Quilting!
Jelly Belly 2 ~ 100 inches square
QUILTINGB52 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
My journey is filled with many of "life's inconveniences" ~ health challenges that are out of my control, eating challenges that I CAN control and exercise challenges that I'm learning to adapt.
These inconveniences add challenges to my day.
Life is not perfect, but if we start the day with a positive attitude and throw in a huge helping of quick wit, the day is bound to improve!
Truth be told ~ my obseity is the symptom, emotional over-eating is my disease and weight-loss is my reward.
Let's gather together with a bit of "spark" and soon we will have a bonfire started. Whether you are leading, walking alongside or gently encouraging from behind....let's make the best effort on this journey, called LIFE.
Take a chance......to make a change........towards better choices.
Currently, I have only ONE goal....to get back my independence and move out of Assisted Living.
Unfortunately, I'm currently at the mercy of the cooks within an Assisted Living situation. Once I'm back on my own...life will resume to "normal".
Passionate about my quilting & genealogy research!
Love to travel & explore new places & meet new people.
Enjoy reading, bird watching, gardening, photography, star gazing and antiquing!
Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
I laughed when I read your "Sitting is worse?" comment. I'm pretty sure you get a pass on that one. It's clear that you do far more in your wheelchair than most of us do seated at our desks or while watching TV.
I've always thought that walking and reading are very similar in that those who can do them take it for granted, and those who cannot would give just about anything to be able to. I thank God everyday for my relatively healthy and very capable body. I always hope that, if I have mobility challenges, I won't use it as an excuse. And it's a good reminder of why I should never take my abilities for granted!

I am glad you enjoyed sharing my latest hike, even the steep climb! I really want to go back there to take more pictures of the little town and all the pretty bridges, etc.
18 calves?! Wow, they will be busy on the farm indeed! I find calves very funny looking. They are like a smaller, thinner version of their parents, not at all plump like baby animals often are.

How are you this morning? I'm praying for you! I hope you have a peaceful, productive and happy day today.

Thank you so much for looking for the solution for the 'mushrooms'! CRYSTALE8 found the answer: they are field/common horsetail (equisetum arvense)!!! I knew how these look much later in the season, I didn't know they looked like funny little mushrooms in the Spring!
I hope the temperature in the building will get much warmer this week...

Hi! I'm happy to find another quilter on Spark! I was piecing yesterday, but am out in the garden today. I'd much rather be piecing!
