My graddaughter , My Hero

Monday, February 10, 2014

Why is my granddaughter my hero ? Not only has he lost 50 pounds in the last year, she was one of the ten finalist in the Apple Blossom Royalty Pageant. Unlike most all the other contestants she is still no size 2 ( of which she was painfully reminded) and barely over 5 foot tall .
Knowing beauty is in all of us , she made it to the top ten ! Even though she didn't get a crown... I am so proud of her I could bust ! Amber, sweety to me your the greatest most perfect example of a lady ! And bravest !
G-ma loves ya honey . 4ever

Our newest addition to the family Sir Bentley

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Bentley is a pure Border Collie we found at our county animal shelter, Pictured here with our Autumn a Border Collie/ Australian Cattle Dog cross, Autumn wasn't too sure at first ( this was there second meeting, the first being at the shelter) But they play together and are best buds now. Autumn was so depressed after the loss of her best buddy Tawanda ( a Jack Russel Terrier) It is nice to see her happy again !
Both dogs love our three mile hikes every morning !

It's Like a Triple Treat

Friday, May 31, 2013

I have combined three things I love to do. My love of hiking, photography, and my love of early morning in the outdoors . Each morning by 6 a.m. my husband and I go for a 3 mile hike on the Iron Horse trail here in Ellensburg. I bring my camera and a good telephoto lens. I never get bored, always there is something changing or a critter of some kind we cross paths with. There are the cows in the pastures abutting the trail
Birds which are one of my favorite . Like this Western Tanager.

Always rabbits including now the tiny babes.

Oh not to mention the interactive wildlife like the Killdeer who lead us up the trail running, then flying and displaying.

we get a morning workout and a show !
I love exercise !

    I like using a Nikon camera. I use a digital one now but I used to have one that used film (and had a huge lens) that took awesome pictures!

    Great photos! I take photos on my phone when I walk - always something to see - unfortunately not the quality of a good camera. Someday, I will break down and buy a good camera!

It makes the exercise more fun when you have some wonderful distractions!

My Main Motivation

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

My three Ms.... I want to loose more weight because it helps reduce the pain of arthritis. A flare up puts me outta action for at least a week. Taking off another 30 pounds would reduce the pressure on my joints by quite a bit. I know my arthritis is not going anywhere but I can do something to lessen it.

    emoticon I'm also 60 and love that I can still do things like that. It's because we push ourselves and refuse to take the easy route and give in to our aches and pains. emoticon

I am coming to appreciate the non-scale victories like this more and more than watching the number on the scale go down.

Congrats on all the healthy choices you made to lead you to this point!
