I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    I am glad you can live vicariously through the blogs. I do enjoy sharing and it's a great way for my family on bother sides can keep up with where we are and what we are doing. Hope I can continue to "feed" you through the summer. We are having a great time for sure even with all the storms. And yes, I drink lots and now have Roger drinking more!! We go through lots of water every day! Thanks for the bottle!!

    Thank you Deena. The damage looked bad, which totally freaked me out, but there was no damage, he must have just scraped the car. Scratches that can't be seen unless you are really looking for them.

    Thanks for the tomato!! It will go with the one that's about ready. Small but looking great!! This mosquito plant has been keeping the gnats and every other bug away from our door. We were surprised when the gnats left in a hurry when I brought it out and put it by the steps.
    I bet your aunt does enjoy the quiet. We have been as well. Today we went hunting for things to see that were in the brochures and can't believe that we found nothing. Ex. a plantation home with the history written in a park. Drove about 15 miles to get there to find out that it had been taken down a while ago due to decay. We could read a placque though. Several were like that. Enjoyed the day's drive through the area!!
