My son and me! Proud Mama! May 9, 2010 Mother's Day
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My greatest joy is that I am now a grandma to a beautiful little girl named Eliana. She is just seven months old. She gives me motivation to work at getting back to health and losing some weight in the process. My son married his girlfriend on September 15, 2015. They have given me Eliana and my daughter in law's sons are my grandchildren, too.
I struggle with weight loss but will never stop trying. I live in Colorado. I love the mountains though I am afraid of heights! My hobby and passion is Tole painting. I paint for pleasure and sometimes a little cash for my work.
Here is to 2016 being a healthy year for me!
Walking and dancing without having to stop to catch my breath.
Live a healthy, happy life, without meds and without having to be on oxygen.
I set small goals daily which helps me to work at achieve them. I eat veggies and fruits everyday and work at eating a low fat, healthier diet. I exercise and move more than I ever have. I wear a pedometer to log steps and dance everyday!
I was born in Denver, Colorado but now live in Aurora, Colorado, about 7 years now. My name is Patricia but fmost everyone calls me Pat. I have been married for or 24 years. My husband is from Mexico City, Mexico and we have one son who is now 24 years old. I love to Tole paint and do crafts as hobbies. I paint alot of glass ornaments at Christmas time and basically anything that doesn't move gets painted!. I enjoy crossword puzzles, word searches and have begun writing blogs and poems since I joined Spark.
I love the mountains of Colorado but I am afraid of heights. Estes Park is one of my favorite mountain retreats. I like to watch movies: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio are favorites. I love to watch Christmas movies and romantic comedies. I like to go to Blackhawk, the casino town in Colorado, but don't like losing money!
Secrets of Success
Hi, Pat! One of our team members on the Before the Landfill - Crafty Recyclers' team shared a site today about crafts with light bulbs, and I told her I'd been saving some ever since I saw all your great painted bulbs! I'm still saving bulbs, but I haven't painted any yet. Yours are so creative!
Here's the site -- although you'll probably have to copy and paste:
Hope you're having a great week. Enjoy your week-end!

Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.
