To succeed...
You need to find something to hold on to,
something to motivate you,
something to inspire you

    Thank you for this, very timely. I just went to my high school reunion, my big motivator to loose weight. I have to re-focus on my motivation now. I've already gained, so I REALLY need to find a lifelong motivation. Thanks again.

my garden grows

Thursday, July 21, 2011

My little garden produced enough to share with my neighbors! :-)

Today I walked---the path that we used to walk together---early in the morning before it was too hot--He used to find "treasures" a bolt or nut that maybe he would use one day--funny little things he would say--daily talk of what we would do --later. Our goal each walk was to pick up nails and save someone a flat tire--how we would laugh each time--silly fun. Like we were saving the world.

Remember to do those things with your loved one NOW--later may come and one is gone---never having done the things put off until later.

I am like a child wondering how life works now. What I do know is that he is doing well with the peace that is beyond human understanding---that is when I know that I too will be ok---I must go forward into the unknown. It will be ok. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My dear friend I'm saddened your husband has passed and I know how much you miss him. I'm glad you're starting to do things that I'm sure hurt, but they are things you did together that brought you pleasure. And never for a moment doubt that he is not right there, still, walking with you.

If I where still in Sacramento I would seek you out for company.

You're so right about life being too short (maybe you read my blog about being thankful). My daughter and I are having "issues" and I do want to spend time with her (afterall that's why I moved 1900 miles here to Shreveport, LA.) I pray for her and forgive her, I just wish she would forgive me. I'm 67 now and who knows how much time I have left. I would hope when I go she would mourn me and wish we had the time back.

I wish you all the best.

Hugs, Joan

    This IS a beautiful blog! My husband would have been 58 today. He died a week before his 55th birth. We had not been together for many years, but we were childhood sweethearts and have 3 grown children. God bless!

    It is hard to not eat carbs when the tummy is bothering you.

    Sounds nice. I rarely catch a fish either. I guess that's why they call it fishing not "catching" emoticon to you too.

    Sorry your fishing didn't go as you wanted. We are out camping right now waiting for our friends to arrive. We don't fish but we do over eat!!(LOL) Our group is called the LEO's which actually means Law Enforcement Officers but we decided it should be called the Let's Eat Out club!!

Enjoy your week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

over soreness from water exercise

Saturday, July 09, 2011

I never saw a pessimistic general win a battle
~~~~~~E E Cummings

Well that sore thing from water exercise was over by evening!! That was a great big surprise! Good Stuff. So I went for a little walk--&did my other exercise.

I have been canning and freezing things from my garden--fun-I want to make some Chow-Chow too--I will have to go to the farmers market and buy the stuff if I do. Just fun canning!!! When I had a family I would can a lot of fruit it seemed like the boxes of fruit would never end--but they were so good when winter came!

I am going to the Lake and see if I can catch a fish or 2. Even if nothing bites it beats sitting home eating! My style of fishing is more like a great rest--I throw my line in and then take a bit of walk an look at whats around-or read something light , or just sit and look out at the calm blue water and sky and thank God for this wonder!! If I am lucky that day I will cook some fresh fish .

Wishing you a great blessed day.

What did the fish say when it hit a concrete wall?

"Dam!"

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn

    Great blog, it is nice to read that some one still cans. I can remember growing up , helping my mother can. the last things that I canned was tomatoes and that was in the 1980's.
I like your idea on fishing. Perhaps you did catch tonight's dinner.
Thank you for sharing
