Saturday evening with my Daughter & her 2 daughters, 07/19/2014

Sunday, July 20, 2014

My daughter and her two little girls at Krider Garden, Middlbury, Indiana.

We met up near a halfway point to walk in the garden.

Near the statue of "Hebe, the goddess of youth," a bird's nest rests in her hand...

My oldest granddaughter

Florence, Kentucky Spark Rally, April 26, 2014

My sister, READING GAL traveled more than 8 hours from North Carolina to meet me at this Spark Rally. I traveled 5 hours from South Bend, Indiana. I was so happy to see her again, it had been almost a year since we spent time together.

With gratitude for INDYGIRL (Beth) and HOOSIERGIRLINDY (Tina) for asking me to speak and to teach a chair yoga class at this rally.

Re connected with ROANNA9 (Roanna) at this Spark Rally, it was good to see her again.

I was so happy to be present there when BRADMILL2422 (Brad Milligan) proposed to his fiance', Lauren. www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

My room at the Microtel had a window seat and a robin in a nest in the tree right outside my window, overlooking a golf course.

On a Snowy Morning

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Very thankful for a dear friend who allowed me to talk about why I eat. It helped me to tell her what I wanted to eat yesterday and I had a good day yesterday. Followed through with a romaine, zucchini, avocado salad last evening and stopped there without any night time eating.

Started October by fasting

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

A successful day of fasting to cleanse and also to take back a little control over my eating. Broke my fast this morning with a 3 egg white omelette of spinach, chopped red pepper and shaved parmesan cheese in a tsp. of coconut oil over 8 sprigs of steamed asparagus. I am thankful for a phone conversation last evening with a wellness coach who is in training. I volunteered to be one of her practice clients. We talked about visualization and I found myself describing my spirituality, clarity and cleansing as key elements in my vision for wellness. I pulled Tosca Reno's book about eating clean down off the shelf again last night.

Mother's Day 2013

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Pokagon State Park, near Angola, IN was filled with redbud trees in bloom and even though the day was cold, we packed a picnic lunch.

My 3-year-old granddaughter, Joscelyn enjoyed looking at the turtles and frogs at the nature center at the park.

I enjoyed watching Joscelyn's delight, I enjoyed seeing baby Lila, Joscelyn's little sister.

When my daughter, Abbi asked if I had a blanket, the yoga blanket I carry with me turns into a poncho. It kept her warmer and we found a playground for Joscelyn.

Making memories together at a state park, instead of a large dinner helped me steer away from calories and walk. I love being outdoors and I love being with my children.

After leaving the park, we traveled to Ft. Wayne to see my son. Baby Emma was diagnosed with croup Friday and seemed to be feeling much better but not well enough to join us at the state park, maybe next year.

We stopped in Goshen on the way home to see my mom. She asked us to stop for a visit after declining our invitation to go along with us to Pokagon. She is 83 years old. It was a Happy Mother's Day.
