Happy Sunday Everyone

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Well, wishing all of you a Happy Sunday. Hubby put out fertilizer yesterday hoping the weather person was correct with the rain prediction. Well it paid off, because it has been raining since last night. Still raining this morning. As I sit hear "sparking", I can hear the birds singing. What a beautiful sound. I love spring time. Flowers are popping up from the ground after being asleep for the winter. Any little color is just so good to see because I know warmer weather is almost here. I love working in the yard and planting flowers. We are in a new home this spring and not sure what was here previously. I do see tulips and iris peeping out from the ground. When the weather allows, I will be putting out the bushes I brought from our last home....about 12-14 of my favorite ones. I can't wait to see what this "yard" will bring in the way of blooming things. After all danger of frost is gone, I will be putting out LOTS of annuals because they give color from spring until frost.

Remember to track you food, exercise, drink your water, and most of all BE HAPPY as you move forward in this journey.

    I love Spring time too, Nancy. It's my favorite time of the year. I am already seeing a lot of blooming trees and some azaleas are now blooming here in Georgia. The trees are budding and some already have new leaves coming out. Our grass is starting to grow and is already greener every week. Once Spring is in full bloom, I plan on a trip to Savannah to to go through all the Squares. They are all so beautiful in Spring. The pictures on my Spark page are of Savannah. Luckily, it's only 45 minutes away from me.

Hope you're having a wonderfully healthy and active day! Take care!

Hugs,

Lainie

I HAD A GREAT DAY

Friday, March 04, 2011

This morning the occupational therapist came to assess Mom. She gave pointers on safety in the shower and in the bathroom in general. Mom is getting stronger and feeling better each day. Of course, that is because I am making sure she eats and drinks plenty of liquids.

Now for another good part of the day. I worked in the yard for over 4 hours. I dug up over 13 bushes and dug holes to replant them. The last 3 holes Hubby dug the holes for me because I was pooped. I do love doing all of that work in the yard. The results are so rewarding. Running out of time....have to run now and get dinner. Nancy

BUSY DAY

Thursday, March 03, 2011

Well, we sure have been busy today. First this a.m. the refrigerator repairman was here. We have a brand new fridge and this is the second time the ice maker has not worked. They replaced the control panel today.Should have ice within 24 hours. 2nd the heating/air repairman was here to replace the heat pump for the bonus. They didn't send one part he needed and it took him forever and lots of phone calls to find it. He is still working on the final installation. Next came the shed we ordered for the back yard and they got that all installed. WHEW!!! Then the physical therapist came to assess Mom' condition. They are going to be doing p/t and occupational therapy and send a home health nurse until she is stronger. She has had a pretty rough time, but is getting better. All of these people were here before 10:00 this morning. All of her therapies start tomorrow along with the nurse. She will be homebound, but not for too long.
I am doing well at keeping on track with my food. Still haven't found time to start my walking again, but I do my exercises inside. Not much time to do all of the sparking I would like but hopefully before long I will be back at it again. Love you guys........Nancy

Rose for Me

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Today the doorbell rang and the UPS man was walking back down the sidewalk. There was a box propped up against the door. It was from Jackson Perkins and was for me. In the box was tree rose. When I had my shoulder surgery I had a wonderful therapist named Linda. Going to therapy 3 times a week for 3 months we became friends. We just clicked. Hubby and I moved from NC to VA right at the end of my finishing therapy and Linda and I have talked on the phone a few times. She sent this to me as a friendship rose. It actually is supposed to make 3 different colors on the same rose. I had a similar one before I moved and was sorry I couldn't take it with me. I had taken her several of the roses during therapy when they were buds and she loved them because they lasted so long. She tried to get me the same one from Jackson Perkins, but it had been discontinued. She got me this one instead. That was so nice of her. The rose I had was named "Rio Samba" and this one is similar and named "Mardi Gras". I miss her and think of her often.
