A reminder of life

Thursday, October 08, 2009

From SHERI1969 ~~~this brought tears to my eyes, I had to share this with you!!



LISTS TO LIVE BY - SIMPLE LIVING

THINGS TO FEEL NOSTALGIC ABOUT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A barefoot walk along a sandy beach.

A quiet visit to the place where you were raised.

Listening to a rippling brook running over the rocks through a forest of autumn leaves.

Singing the song of your alma mater.

Looking over childhood photos in the family album.

Watching your now-grown child leave home.

Standing silently beside the grave of a close personal friend or relative.

The smell and sounds of a warm fire.

An old letter, bruised with age, signed by one who loved you.

Climbing to the top of a wind-swept hill.

Getting alone - all alone - and reading aloud.

Christmas Even, late at night.

Certain poems...certain melodies.

Wedding...graduations...diplomas.

Snow...sleds...toboggans.

Saying good-bye.

got a walk in

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

emoticonit was just 20 minutes --but I did it!! I went to town to pay my property taxes and then decided to take a little walk. It made me feel a lot better.

Today is the day to balance everything so the year ends well.

This made me feel better about my week!!!

You know you had a bad day when:

1. The parachute company says you'll get a full refund.

2. They say the house didn't float very far at all.

3. They're all amazed that you go on living each day.
Well, at least the operation was a partial success.

4. The "National Enquirer" just loved those nude shots of you.

5. The District Attorney says he only has a few more questions.

6.At least the passenger side air bag inflated.

7. Jerry Springer wants you for this "secret admirer show."

8.The insurance pays the full book value ($312) for your 1956 T-Bird.

9. The thieves left the push lawn mower and hedge trimmers.

10. Those Grand Juries always over-react. Don't worry about it.

11. Look on the bright side, those fertility drugs worked 6 times better than expected!

one week 12 exercise and 9 days eating well

Sunday, October 04, 2009

I have had three hard days trying to get back on track. Sick and just wanting to feel well again.
I will just exercise and watch a a movie perhaps the endorphins will kick in and I will feel better.
I feel like the walking dead.
I am off to read your words--I know that there is a laugh in there somewhere! :)

11 weeks exercising ~~9 days eating well and

Friday, October 02, 2009

One day eating a big ol burger--buurp. Today, Friday good day for veggies and make up for that burger--naw, don't have to make it good. It is a new day!!
Hey, I lost some weight. emoticon what a war I wage. I am being more consistent. Why do I let it get so hard? Guess I am human.

Baby shower Saturday----soo sweet to see the tummy and know that soon another sweet baby will be born to love!!

Also church dinner on that same night. It will take a lot of clear thinking to not eat ALL that is on my plate. Also, with the laughter at the BB shower my defenses go down with the food!! I will need to pray about this food, and know that HE will care and give me insight.

Geeeeeeeez why do I make it so hard!! emoticon
I just need to emoticon & emoticon

week 11 exercise~~8 days eating well

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I had a nice time in SF ~~ went to the science museum and walked on the beach and in the little towns near there.
A woman joined me in my walk near the motel. She knew the area, her bf was sleeping off a big meal. We talked health and I introduced her to Spark people--spread the spark!
I also had my hair cut in a town on North Hampton. It was windy and she cut me a shorter style. No one noticed the difference except me. I like it.

I am learning how to have fun. I knew how to have fun planning for parties or cooking for them, and how much fun kids can be-I never knew how to have fun for me--where the happiness just flows. When younger I knew how, I am giving into that again. Funny how I have to learn all over again--life happens, and it is happening in a fun way now.

I am most proud of NOT giving into the fried seafood and all that sourdough bread. I didn't bing and I had a good time. Different.

I lost my first 2 blogs this morning. I am crossing my fingers that this time it will work.

I am off to read your words.Today I weigh again--maybe something? emoticon emoticon
