So much for my mini goal to blog daily again..already missed yesterday!!

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Hi I'm a day late with this much for mini goals..the rest are going better :)

I was in the field most of yesterday summerfallowing ...we stopped for a quick lunch in town..the Co-op was having customer appreciation so free lunch and hubby needed stuff,too. Then back to the field when we got home and I worked late so had a late supper..I had a large spinach salad with lots of veggies and a fresh peach for dessert :)

My neighbor had phoned so I returned her call, we hadn't talked for a couple of weeks with her being away and I having the granddaughters here. Sad news is her adult daughter's cancer has come back and she needs treatments again.

By then I was cvompletely out of steam so headed off to bed..the rest of my goals are coming nicely..have inched a bit closer to my tracker..hope to be back at it by Sept 1

Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'..I'm back to the field again today...

Love Donna emoticon

    Glad you are putting rest first. Blogging is nice but since you are such a busy person getting enough rest is more important.

Today's blog and some mid-August goals :)

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Hi..just a quick blog and some quick goals!!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented on my blog yesterday :) Yeah I'm very proud of my sweet granddaughters :)

Today I mostly stayed on track with food, did lots of exercise including running up and down stairs just for the fun of it 10 x and walking out in the pasture to bottle feed my little calf (hubby's idea not mine!!) He finally turned them out of the corral.

Yesterday I rode horse for the first time this felt good to be back in the saddle again :)

I worked out a plan in a 3 subject note book of things to work on and of course my health and spark were one here's some back on track, mini goals for the last half of August

Get back to drinking at least 8 glasses of water!!
Get back to tracking all my food (just in a note book for now..back on Spark in Sept!!)
Get back to doing lots of fitness minutes..and tracking
Get back to blogging daily..this is day 2 :)
Get back to what sparked me to lose 25 pounds last year and continue from there!!
Get back to racking up the Spark points..try to get to next level by Sept 1 :)

There that should get me back on track...let's see if I can Spark some weight loss and get back on track for Sept!! I'm also going to go some blogs to find some more inspiration..wish me luck!!

Today I also met with my slo-pitch team women for a send off to one of our team who is off to Edmonton for special radiation treatment..she has to stay in a closed room for 5 days with no out side contact and have meals send through a slot in the door..then driving home her husband can't be in the car with her for very many hours so they will have to stop lots..then she'll be off work for quite awhile..keep her in your prayers through this ordeal!!

Well I better go for now , thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Sitting with my feet up...

Saturday, July 23, 2011's been awhile since I've blogged so here goes a catch up blog...

Had a really busy week..and very stressful...Monday was an early a.m. appt for oil change in home and had a few trying calls with my daughter... can't seem to help her ...just keep trying to encourage her :( Fought a huge prairie fire about 10 miles away from our ranch..we were there a few was blistering hot and the wind was wicked but it was finally under control and burned about 50 acres on the neighbours :( Tried talking to my daughter and it was going nowhere.... I lost my patience and ended up hanging up and now feel bad and she won't answer now :( feel like I burned that bridge...

Tuesday was hot, hot, hot..went to town to get a tire fixed and worked around home....Wednesday took a day off and spent the day in Regina with my sister and tried to get some stress relief..we had a fun day :)...Thursday was a cattle round up in the community pasture and did some catch up work around home...

Yesterday I iced a cake for the bridal shower center piece and after lunch went to town and got the shower ready with the other hostess..the shower was great fun until the end when the town was under a tornado warning!!! Talk about clearing out a hall!! At least we cleaned up fast too and got home safe and no tornado :) but some more stress..and oh my aching feet!!

Today after chores we went back into town to work the 2 shifts at the outdoor music festival..morning shift at the gate and afternoon shift and the food booth. Now we're home..I'm sitting with my feet up..boy do they hurt :( Hubby's out baling..I'm watching a movie....

Tomorrow I hope to do some more catching up..yard work, house work etc.... July is flying by and the little granddaughters are coming for swim lessons Aug 1... I can't wait but I have lots of stuff to do to get ready !!

Better go..hubby just came in with the tractor and broke down the baler :(

Keep on Sparkin' Have a great rest of the weekend..thanks for dropping in...

    We lurch along from crisis to crisis: good thing we're resilient, right? That mother/daughter relationship is so rich and complex and confusing and difficult and . . . can't believe the bridge is burned (but may require a row boat in the meantime!!).

All best to you. Take care of yourself!!

    Oh Donna - such is life on the ranch ;) And the fact of the matter is, it is our life not just the place we work so makes it even more special. Summer is rushing by - we have had a crappy, cold, windy July with very few days above 20!! Maybe August will change all that
Hope this week is good for you and take care

    Nice to have a little cool off today. I see Glasgow got hit with some really mean rain/hail. 1.55 inches in about half an hour. "A River Runs Through It"

Hope you have a good Sunday.

    What do you do in your spare time emoticon I do understand though. After two weeks trying to catch up at home I get back on the boat to relax. You need to post pictures when you do a cake or something special like that. Enjoy your evening
