May 21,2012 Update

Monday, May 21, 2012

Well, the pants are still too tight and last week I blew it half way through the week. So yesterday I got on the bandwagon and started again. I figured that I made it through 3 days of staying in ranges and so this week I am going for 5.
I am still depressed but the sunshine is helping. I find I am much more positive when the sun is out and it is warm so this week just might be good.

I hope to finish the vegetable, and fruit garden this week. All soil amendments are purchased and the square boxes are put together. I have to mix the peat moss and compost and get it in the boxes. Then I can plant the strawberries, blueberries and the grapes. Memorial Day Weekend is planting weekend here in western NY so I will go and get the vege's and put them right in.

I really am excited to find out how the boxes work out. It won't be true square foot gardening but maybe I won't have to weed so much.

Another horse show is 2 weeks away so I have to get my students ready for that. Then we have a bit of a break till the end of July. There are other shows but these "Empire" shows are for lesson students and they are a lot of work.

Thanks to Stepitoff for the words of encouragement I saw in my inbox this morning.

    Sunshine is great, isnt it? I also take Vitamin D and I think it helps. It is actually part of my calcium supplement.

    Horse show will be fun. I have done one with my horse. We are better suited for trail rides though ha

    The garden will be fun also, and therapeutic, with lots of healthy benefits. The exercise, the meditation, the produce!! I have planted one this year also. I havent gardened for many many years. Decades even. It has been a fantastic activity. And my grandson that lives here, he is 7 and he loves helping me. I was amazed!!


    Smile and Enjoy the Rest of Your Day!

    Good Morning Diamond! I can so understand the feeling of the pants too tight. Just pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start again. We all have days where we just want to give up but making positive changes and getting back on the wagon is the first start! I wish you all the best and if you need a friend I am here!

    Have a great day! You can do this!
