Hi... today hubby was hauling bales from a neighbor so I had most of the day to myself, that's a change..
I was busy working on my habits, new and old..water, vitamins, got back on my x-bike, it's been awhile...some of the challenges I'm doing for May is a toned arm challenge with weights, a plank challenge, a squat challenge and an ab challenge..
While I ride my bike I like to read and listen to music and drink water...on the spiritual side I've started reading the 31 Proverbs over the next 31 days. I was also reading in a book about life is a house with 4 rooms..physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and to have a balanced life you have to go into each room every day...
I worked on my May journal..getting it all set up for the month..did some laundry, cleaned up more cat throw up..this time on the rug by the bed and not in bed with me!! I also have for one of my habits I'm working on to stop procrastinating ..so I've been doing a few catch up jobs that have been nagging me..the cutlery drawer in the kitchen needed painting and I have put it off for years..now it's done woohoo..I also bought some cork squares to hang inside a cupboard door for lists, recipes and inspiration that I finally put up today too.
I spent some time outside too..I quadded the herd morning and evening and did some clean up jobs in the yard, and check cows to calve..we had one more calf today so now we have 9 left..woo hoo single digits..I'll celebrate that :)
Back in the house I did more laundry, some housework, started a few more seeds, made a rhubarb crisp..visited on the phone with my son ..found out his girlfriend's Birthday is in May too!!
Lots of Birthday's today..some friends on facebook that I wished Happy Birthday to. It was also one of my Grandma's birthdays..when she passed away all the grandkids got a fancy china tea cup..the one given to me has lily of the valley..May's flower on it since we shared May Birthdays..I think I may make a cup of lemon tea in my fancy cup to celebrate my favorite Grandma..she died when I was 9 but she still remains my favorite!!
I love how when my focus is on Celebrate and habits I find articles everywhere...I even received an e-mail called 55 free ways to celebrate your birthday (and I'm going to be 55) It was from the ALL You Magazine..and an offer to buy a book about habits!! right full of quotes..and you know how I love quotes :)

Well..best finish up and make my tea..thanks for dropping by for my party and for all the well wishes on my 3 year sparkaversary!! Keep on celebrating and keep on Sparkin'
May 2..lots of friends birthdays and National day of Prayer

I am so very grateful to all you dear Spark friends that have made these three years on SparkPeople so awesome!! Hope you can keep dropping by my blogs..to help me party and celebrate this great month...
I'll elaborate on each goal in future blogs..I am going to gradually add some new habits to my daily routine (10 minutes at a time) and do some fitness challenges...and do some charting to help me keep on track..also plan to keep up all the great healthy habits I have gained from 3 years on this fabulous site.
Today we went to Weyburn after chores and had a late lunch in town, then some shopping, over to in-laws for coffee and then my OAMS (once a month shopping) for groceries. Hubby wanted to buy me a new camera for my Birthday..it's not until the 18th but we picked it out today..I don't know too much about cameras but I'm excited to try it out...would love to learn more about photography!!
Today was cold but sunny and the warm up is supposed to happen in a few days.. can't wait for spring to come to stay...that would truly be something to celebrate!! after the winter we've had...
Well best go for now and watch the end of the hockey game..thanks for dropping by and for all the Sparkaversary wishes!! Keep on partying and keep on Sparkin'
May 1...May Day/ 3 year Sparkaversary!!
Life may not be the party we hoped for , but while we're here we should dance
