Getting Into The Fall Season

Thursday, November 21, 2013

My husband and I are walking almost everyday in the evening cool air. The smell of the fall leaves and smoke from the wood burning fireplaces in the neighborhood is wonderful. I made a healthy tasty stew we have enjoyed for two days. Today, we finally had enough fallen leaves on the ground to satisfy hubbie for raking. We worked for hours. Cleaning up leaves, picking up limbs, and straightening out border blocks that had shifted or fell over was vigorous work. I loved it. My husband kept trying to get me to take a break. I kept on going. I did finally take one break, because I was afraid I had worn my husband out. I wore yard gloves, but still got blisters on both hands. Hate blisters! I might can't move in the morning. I hope not. I want to go for a practice walk in the area the 5k. We will be participating in it on December 13th. We aren't sure where the area is. My husband wants to find it, so we won't have any trouble getting there on time. Plus we like knowing the area we will walk. I hope this weekend we can get back to working on the yard. We still have the sides of the yard and the back part to rack. I want to work on the patio's and tidy them up. I still haven't gotten to my garden area. I need to clean it up and winterize everything. So I have a lot of work to do. There is lots of work in the house to do as well. So with regular exercise and all that work, I should stay in shape. I make up a cold and virus mix with certain vitamins every year to help stave off illness or at least shorten it. We have started taking that already. I keep hand sanitizer with me at all times. There are other things we do to stay healthy. I am planning for the cold months to keep busy and eat extremely healthy. I don't want any glitches in losing weight and staying very healthy. Happy Fall Season everyone! Get out there and enjoy it. emoticon

    Sounds like a very busy and productive day! I made a start on the yard work but I still have the back parts of the yard (which are more natural than landscaped) to rake and winterize. HOWEVER -- the leaves and pine needles keep falling, so as soon as I finish and area it's time to start over again! I hope you are not too sore tomorrow!

    I LOVE your suggestions for staying healthy through the winter. I will get some hand sanitizer! and try new healthy menus.

    I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving. I will be down visiting mom and my brother and sisters, and I will join Mom for her Thanksgiving supper at noon. She cannot travel or get out of bed, so my sister and I will join her in her room at the nursing home. She is in good spirits and at peace.

    Thanks for all your support and your comments on my blog!
