Aahh!!! The Call of Nature

Thursday, December 20, 2012

I had finished my breakfast and the washing was purring away, the sunshine called me outside.

As usual it is sort of hectic up to Christmas especially being old and the memory going...lots of lists help but finding them can be a problem;)...anyway, I decided a quiet sit in the morning sun would be lovely.

I went outside and all was still and quiet, I sat down and closed my eyes, ah the sun washed over me and my thoughts calmed, I soaked in the warmth.

THEN, I heard it... the cicadas clicking, the flies buzzing, the crickets clicking, the crows 'ark..arking' and the other flock 'arking' back. The galahs were calling, the cows saw me and started lowing, the rooster crowed. Then there was the scream...



it was me and I went inside for some PEACE...

Happy Christmas and may you find a place of peace over the holiday. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Funny. Reminded me of using my new outdoor hammock in the yard for some peace & quiet relaxation -- NOT. Add mosquitoes to the mix with the noise makers.

    It's always a good day when you, as a simple lay person, can show a professional that you were right and that they were wrong! Good on you and cheers!

I did it and it felt great

Monday, December 10, 2012

Today I went out to the shops for the first time with a short sleeved t-shirt ... no I mean it... really short more like a singlet on and I was exhilarated. I know... so what... but it is the first time in soooo lllloonng as I was always trying to hide my large arms.

today was 35 deg C and I just did it

no one fainted or laughed or picked up their children and ran

Oh the freedom.

    You mean to say that NOBODY saw you and screamed or passed out?? Are you sure? We are our own worse critics, the things we let our minds convince us of are never as dire as what really happens in the world. Good for you for going without sleeves and living to tell the tale!

What a Difference a Day Makes!!!

Friday, December 07, 2012

Hi Everyone,

My son is going on holidays on the 17th December for a couple of weeks, he is a 2IC (second in charge) at an electrical distributors about an hour (each way) away from home by car. He is a loyal employee and does long hours and goes the extra mile for customers with a cheeky way about him. (non biased Mums opinion).

I noticed he is a lot cheerier at home and making more cheeky comments than usual. One night he came home and I had his chicken soup on the table ready. No veges or chicken visible as the other sibling is allergic to seeing them (sigh). He asked if that was all there was and I said yes no lumps in this one. So he ate it or drank it I should say and went off to his room , not realizing he had a meal as well in the oven.

Well for the next week I got teased (relentlessly I might add) about starving him and being on rations etc, he he .

That is the trailer....
to my thought that we are very fickle people really , the idea of holidays has really brightened him up and it made me think about New Years Day. (finally you are thinking here comes the point ).

It really is just another day in the year, but for me at least it brings a sort of relief that the old year is over and a new beginning is on it's way.

I haven't failed yet or hurt anyones feelings or said a dumb parent trying to be helpful but adding pressure comment. I haven't put on weight or had chest pain yet, haven't got any bills or had anything break down and I can relax and look forward to a great year.

It really is a great day and I get a totally different feeling on that day to other days.

I wondered if it was only me or if it affected others in the same way, because I'm all for a calendar that has January 1 on each page...

So it comes down to looking at each day as though... it were Jan 1st and not putting expectations of DOOM on it. Looking at the day as though great things are possible every day for me and my family and for you too.

Just a thought...

    Good idea! Treat each day like a new beginning instead of a continuation of what happened yesterday. I think I may try to do that in the upcoming year. I wonder if it would be okay to treat each new day like it was my diet "free day"?? Probably not a good idea, unless my new year's goal is to get back to the weight that I started at!

    I also love January 1st because it is the start to a new year, to new possibilities, a chance to get things right. Look out 2013.

December is here 02.12.12

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Hi Guys

My loss for this week was 0.3kg

not a great amount but an amount anyway. Now for the badgering and blame game ... no wait ...I don't do that anymore. :)

So I'm having a Pamper Day. face mask- nails- pedicure - hot chicken soup lots of sly sighing ha ha ...

First some cardio and weights to perk me up.

Spark people has GOT me hooked, I used to add my meals and try to get some points and then leave. Now I can't wait to get to the blogs and friend feed and see how everyone is going.

Walking with CHICHANTEL, listening to ITSMATT's latest wisdom, seeing if KINGSLAYER is online, who's got a blog or a goodie, leaving a note, having a laugh,it's great therapy.

Thanks all Happy DECEMBER to you.
