Enlighten Me

I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.
― Jeanette Winterson

It's a magical world, and I am exploring. (to paraphrase Calvin)

***end of 2014*** I need to get re-focused and make exercise a regular part of the day. Since losing 20+ pounds with SP several years ago, my life got somewhat complicated, and the weight started creeping back up. As 2014 ends, I'm rethinking what I need to do to reach my goals.....

It's always beautiful here, even when it's grey. Today on my walk, the wind stirred the trees. The trees still have snow and ice on them and when the wind came along it would blow some snow and ice off the evergreen branches and sending it falling to the ground. The ice falling as sounded like glass was breaking all around me as I walked. :-D

I love my wings! Sparkpeople didn't let me know I had a goodie so I didn't realize until today. Thank you so much!
YES, the actual birthday comes and goes in roughly 24 hrs (if my math is correct...never trust me with numbers), but there's a whole year and a whole decade and who knows how long after that?
I'm trying to adjust my sails accordingly.. I remember when I turned 50 - I'd geared up for that new number in front of the zero and 50 was a breeze. Then came 51 and it was like a slap in the face. Who knew? The long lens is best..
Hang on, they have just the Sparkgoodie I have in mind...

Back and whining! They have no champagne-toast Sparkgoodies, not even in the Luxury section! I'm annoyed. And I will not toast with apple cider, tyvm ~
At any rate, here's to excellent birthdays and most excellent years to follow, all of them ::clink!::

Hmm. We have friends with a drone. Heh heh.

Them cooking tongs do come in handy. I've used them a couple of times for snakes. One time, the snake alarmed me so much by writhing itself up around the tongs that I threw the whole deal out the lanai door--snake, tongs, and all.

I don't know much about barred owls, although we do have them around here and I've seen them upon occasion.

For great horned owls, and so maybe for barred owls as well, January and February are mating and nesting season, so there's always a lot more calling around this time of year. Maybe they stopped calling because they found mates?
