OK, I'm trying to get in the mood. We're in Advent so why don't I feel like it should be time for all the shopping and decorating, etc. I put up a few decorations and they look like clutter rather than Christmas. I don't know where that came... Read more

The days are so gorgeous here in central Florida. I love that I don't have to be out the door to walk while it is still dark to beat the heat. I can walk anytime and enjoy the day. I've moved my stationary bike out to the patio and set up my ... Read more

This has been one of those weeks with lots of ups and downs. I had some crazy meals and was pleasantly surprised at how they stacked up when I had to make the corrections in my food tracker. A couple of days I was high on fat and I am usually ... Read more

Too busy

Monday, October 22, 2012      9 comments

Ever since we got back to Florida last week we have been on the run or so it feels. Today I was longing for those relaxing days at the cabin out on deck watching the deer meander through the back yard. Today I made the neighbors teen age b... Read more

It was very overcast and dreary this morning and I was not sure if it was going to rain again or not but decided to just go for it. I walked up and down around the mountain for a little over an hour. Once I actually saw the sun try to peek out... Read more

We've had some heavy rain here in the north Ga mountains the last few days. This morning it was still cloudy but the clouds were lighter and it looked like we would finally see the sun. I went down to the river walk and enjoyed the cool mornin... Read more

Today I decided to change my walk up the mountain to a different route. I started up as usual and then took a right on the first intersecting street and went down and another right which took me up to the top of this particular mountain. The v... Read more
