There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

That's not very nice, hope you can pick up another client soon. Don't know how much more one can pull in that belt, it's difficult for sure. I'm worried about some of my investments too, Japan's situation had a huge impact there, scared to move investments now and loose all. Oh well, it's only money, maybe something good in another way will come my way.

Had a wonderful weekend, spend most of it in the garden, my new veggies are coming along nicely, hoping to have squash, spinach, onions and lettuce soon. Bought an assortment of flowers seeds to put in now, going to make new flowerbeds next weekend. Maybe some colour in the garden will chase these money blues away, lol!

Hi old friend, can't believe it's the 1st of April already, where does the time go?

Weekend ahead and looking forward to it, this past week has been hectic again, so much going on at the moment, just trying to stay ahead of the sh*t storm, lol! I think the real recession is upon us now, our petrol prices are being adjusted up just about every month now, huge electricity hike today so all goods will follow. My company is on the bones, we might make it for another 2 months but if we don't get contracts soon I see us closing doors. Haha, maybe my wish to retire will come true.....

Have a great one!
hugs xx

My hubby is just the opposite Of course he is only 58 and that is a big difference. I have to make him take time off.I told him we needed to go for a bike ride today.He likes that LOL we will go for Mexican food.
I worked around all day yesterday and still felt like I could go for a walk I am thrilled about that.Seems like sitting to long or standing in one spot are the things that bother my back .I will try not to do those things.
Have a great weekend :)

Well done with your back in shape plan! must be one of the most satisfying moments in one's life when you try those very tight old jeans on and they actually fit AND all of a sudden you have clothes in your wardrobe again!
You are so lucky you have a diy hubby, mine is even more lazier than before-he turned 70 last week and needs time to get used to the new number, lol. I decided to get help for house work twice a month and a guy for the garden once a month. Just can't cope doing the heavy work by myself, was difficult to face that fact...but I did, more zen time now :)

Long weekend for us, Monday is a holiday woo hoo! got lot's to do and I have the energy for it. emoticon

Been busy here as well and I find I want to be outside working instead of sitting on the computer. I have been doing very well on my renewal to get back in shape. Am starting to fit into my old clothes yeah.
Have been moving birds around outside,Hubby has been putting up the new housing for me.
I have a Turkey laying eggs although she has not started to sit yet. The cockatiels are sitting on another clutch of eggs they are about due to hatch. Am starting to work on the veggie garden. Things are getting green and lovely :)
Let's keep busy LOL write when you can grab a moment emoticon

emoticon Arlene, long time since we posted here! Been crazy on my side, so I eased off on my on-line time.
How are you? is spring there yet? we are getting ready for early winter rains, I'm trying to figure out ways to be able to spend more time outside during winter. Busy waterproofing the potting(garden) shed so that my birds can have a dry place outside on a nice day. Also planted veggies, hope I will get something out of it before winter, should do as I used mostly precious worm compost to plant in.

Are all the baby birds gone now? any new additions in the yard?

All the critters are fine. We carted water out to the so they could drink. We are starting to melt YEAH..Bare in mind I have mild winters here..Other people have been slammed with snow and ice.
The babies are listed and I have to make call backs today I have 6 people and 4 birds.We are selling them very cheap $25. they run around $125. in the stores . I think it is a good value and a nice chance for some one to have a sweet bird .

Loved the photos, thank you for that emoticon warm kiss!

Gosh hard to believe how cold it really is on your side, are all the critters fine? or do you have to bring them indoors when it gets very cold? haha, I will have all of them in my house!

When will you let the birdies go? are there quite a market for them there?

They do. They are adorable. I will try to upload another video of then.
I always try not to dwell in the past. I still can not even address the loss of my two dear doggies so I stay ion denial about it. Maybe it is silly but the voices here like me.
Awesome that the beebee is talking. My Chucky only dances and squawks...I adore him anyway Goofy guy

you are right, I tend to get in a happy place then something comes and upset my zen. I was totally fine after the holidays, then remembered it's a year since my nephew passed and this month it's a year since Jojo(conure) crossed over. Now everything is getting to me, worried about the companies future too. Oh dear, I do sound a bit depressed...got to snap out of it and start counting my blessings!

On a brighter note, my baby senegal has found his voice, Beebee is talking! Sure they are having conversations between the 3 of them, so cute. How's your babies doing, have they got all their feathers yet?

yeah had to wear the silly BP monitor for 24hrs on Sat, made 8 hours and pulled the torture machine off my arm. thing took a reading every 30min! was bloody sore and painful, personally thinks it was a waste...just another gimmick to sell more meds?
Only way to beat it is to take control of my own health, ie don't stress, eat healthy and get the exercise...last to are ticked is the stress thing that's my problem.

Hi Ladies !! I have been hovering around this site for a while, trying to decided if I should join again. Well, my wings got tired, so I landed here to try this again. Did well the first time, and then got off track. Anyway....you may remember me or not. I am a crazy bird person. Now up to 6 birds in my house, along with a springer spaniel and a cat. And yes, a husband. I live in Wisconsin where it was
minus 21 degrees this morning. Brrr....
I hope to start this program this weekend. I will need all the support I can get :)

LOL sometimes you just have to blast them ;)GO YOU! Other wise they walk on you.
Am thinking this knee might just need to be scraped or something. I can not straighten it out with weight on it or the pain is un believable I had a scope done several years back.
Those goats are going to be mad it is toe trimming day I may also trim wings on these baby teils they are getting pretty silly .I forgot how fast they grow .
Have a great day my friend :)

Thanks my friend, I must be feeling edgy deep down, lost my temper with a co-worker this morning. These male chauvinists just gets my gall up, would normally have turned my back and walked away but this morning my mouth went into hyper mode. It was not a pretty sight, lol's females rule!


emoticon on the few pounds! you must be on top of the world!
Must say my knee is holding up, hopefully the doc can give you a good anti inflammatory to keep under control.
Have a great day....don't forget to play with goats :)

Sending good thoughts. I know lots of people that have had lumps and they are nothing. Glad you are going to have it checked out,
I have been back on my program and have lost a couple of pounds,Have been walking. Can't do too much else with the back.Of course walking kicks up the knee.I do believe I am going to have to bit the bullet and go see a doc.
It has been warm here this week,Going to be a bit cooler for a few days No snow here but you can ski up the mountain
So glad you had a good break. I would love a nice long break .
Okay off to work with me :) Have a good one

Hi Arlene, good to be back in the swing of things! hope you and family are fit & healthy, missed you over the holidays. How are you, are you surviving the cold? have you had snow? man the weather has been crazy in some places, can you believe Queensland, Australia is so flooded....even here some very dry areas had loads of rain and floods, our rivers are running full force down to the sea, what a pity all that water is going to the fishes..not funny.

Well I'm fit and sunburned from my 3 weeks, really made use of the pool just about everyday. Amazing how much more toned my body is, now to keep it like that. On a worry note-found a little lump in my right breast on Sunday, going to see to it on Friday-not to freaked out at the moment, will have to wait and see(hold thumbs for me)

BTW how is your back holding out?

I never understood how important water was until I moved to the desert SW . I grew up in the North east and it is very wet. Had city water. Here it is mostly your own well. If you run out you are up Sh*ts creek with no paddle. How scary it must be for every one there.We need water for our survival. And we take so much for granted

What a stunning day after all that wind! I did a long walk with the dogs this morning, left just before 5.00 am and got back about 6, temps are way up too-maybe I can have my first dip in the pool after work today.

I love the Spring when life starts to flow back into the plants and you start seeing little green sprouts and leaves.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I'm always amazed by how resilient nature is, remarkable how some plants can survive in extreme conditions.

Hope your Xmas decorations will keep until the day...very windy this side too, I'm going to put up some Xmas lights this weekend but that's about it.

Stay warm and enjoy the cocoa(love it-I make a mean cuppa with cocoa & coffee mixed)xxx

It got very cold here over night :( still warms up during the day though.
I have a feeling this baby went to a great home :) We only sold her for her own safety. We were afraid our male would breed her. It could really hurt her at her age. We did not want to have to separate them either. they like to have friends.
So glad to hear your knee is doing better. I am determined to get this stinking weight off.
HA I would love to be able to come to Africa some day..
Ya never know ;)

Glad all is back to normal..haha is it ever? awe, sorry about the little one going, hard thing to do but that is life. Bet you will replace him soon with another critter or two.

I can feel a space or two becoming open in my house for another bird/s, the aviary outside is screaming out for a couple of cocatiels emoticon or maybe a couple of bunnies...?also found the perfect place in the back to put up some owl nesting boxes, if I'm going for keeping critters outside there will be a rat & mice problem, maybe even snakes so I will need owls to help.

Good for you working on the weight again, the 13kg I lost made a huge difference on my knee. Also my pool exercise is doing it's bit, walking without a knee guard :) so stoked to delay the knee replacement as long as possible!

Ah, the weather....summer is here in full force, my favourite time, you want sun? come visit, I mean it...you will LOVE it here :):)

Did I say warmer temps? raining again today, was too wet for a walk with the dogs this morning:( but thankful for the extra rain, they say our rainfall was way below normal this winter-dams not full so we are going to be on strict water savings. So happy for the wellpoint, looking forward to a huge saving on my water bill this summer :)x10!
My knee playing up again, had to go for my dreaded cocktail injection again, feeling very blah-so hate those chemicals in my blood, juk!
Got to get back to work, my desk is FULL again!

Facebook is wonderful! managed to trace some long lost cousins of mine too :) sad that our parents has passed but happy to know the bond is still there.

emoticon at least you have your precious memories from childhood and all the stuff he taught you :) lol, do you also still phone him when you hit a problem? I still do that with my eldest bro and he loves the fact that even if it might be only once or twice a year, he can give advice. hahaha sister in law still hates that! weird after all these years she still gets jealous and I like to get on her nerves emoticon

Looks like super weather for the week, our temps are way up....might even be hot enough for a swim!

Wow that sounds like a great trip :) It is funny looking at the map and seeing the names of places you would like to visit and knowing that some you are chatting with lives there LOL so exotic

I hope you have a wonderful time and a great visit with loved ones . Those times are just so special. Thanks to the computer I am back in touch with my cousins as we married we drifted apart,now that our families are grown we are reconnecting. Just so many lost years.
My brother is my only sibling It is hard not to see him and hug him we were always joined at the hip. I was such a tom boy growing up we hunted and fished worked on cars it was great

www.selftours.co.za/maps.htm I'm flying to Johannesburg, then by car to Pretoria. Managed to get very cheap flights because I booked early :) big saving! more to spend on an outfit and gift. The last time I saw the boys was with Sven's funeral in Feb this year. So looking forward to this although sad that the eldest brother(Sven) won't be there to witness. Jonathan is the middle brother, I'm very close to him, lived with me for about a year here in Cape Town. sigh, how timed passed so quickly, but I'm happy! hoping an offspring will be on the cards soon, this Aunt isn't getting any younger.

Gosh, Arlene 8 years is a very long time! so sad when siblings drift apart~last time I saw my 2 brothers was at my Dad's funeral 4 years ago. Must say nothing in this world will keep me from seeing my sis, we are still joined at the hip, lol.

Keep cool, enjoy your working weekend! hugs

Hoping it will cool down here enough so I can get back to work on my garden. I would love to have it finished.
Your projects sound wonderful. I am so glad you found such a great place :)
I am 99% sure the male goat is sold. I had a lady come to look at an older one I have and she wanted the baby instead . She will have to wait for him too .
Oh off to work with me today is my Friday. Coop cleaning tomorrow camping trip Thursday ;)

emoticon babies! love it, goats are sooo cute, enjoy while you can...now don't get too attached.

Good for you losing the smelly, evil one lol-everything happens for a reason, something better will fill that space.

We(garden help&me)got loads done this weekend-moved the compost heap out of sight and cleaned the paving around the pool. Starting to take shape, dying to put plants in but must wait for the clean up to finish. Getting the feel of the garden, discovered a piece next to the pond is suppose to be a Zen garden-will definitely restore that to the original state. I am so loving this bit, just wishing I could take a week off work.

Much love :)

Sorry for taking so long before replying, it's been hectic here again with month end and dare I say it..our countries politics~seems as if the whole nation are on strike(again)and I'm the only one working!
I feel for you with your sore back and knee, it's a curse when you can't do your normal day's work without pain~very depressing. Big HUG from me my friend.

On the up side I got my car window cheap, saved myself about 3 weeks of groceries(my new way of measuring, lol)now waiting to have it fitted for next to nothing...where there is a will there is a way?

Enjoy the weekend and take it easy...soak in that tub of yours. emoticon

We have a dog that kills birds too. It really stinks.We have the fence out back hot wired so they can not go through it or over it.
My knee is acting up and my back is still so bad at times it is really getting on my last nerve.

I have today off woo hooo better get a move on :) Have a great day !

Still trying to find a cheaper window, grrr be happy you don't live here, pricing soooo fixed by car dealers!
My knee is better but not 100%, I know something will have to be done to it, waiting to see if weight loss & right exercise makes a difference.

Signs of spring everywhere but looks like a late winter more rain & cold on the cards for the weekend.

My dogs killed a wagtail bird yesterday, very cross with them! these birds get so tame, one came into the house and the boxer just when for it. Got to watch my birds very closely now, it's the 2nd time now....maybe I should put a bell around her neck?

Good to hear the kids are settling in and you are enjoying the big one-you are blessed, these are precious memories for the both of you.

CAn't believe we are in the house for a month today! gosh time flew. All happy still, enjoying all the new shops and walking trails. Looking forward to warmer weather, got the pool nice & clean ready for the first dip. How's your tub working out? the kids must like it?
BTW I'm looking for ideas to paint the pond-it's black now, I think it would better if we add some blue before we fill it with water-there is a photo on my page(will post the link) www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_photo_gal

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

It just doesn't make sense that they stop people from making an honest living but on the other hand kill with cheap food imports....(if I start naming the crap it will take me a day!)They are full of it here too and people are starving & dying, so much is kept out of the media.

On a happier note, my knee is miles better, got to do my first gardening the weekend. Transplanted my ferns & some palm trees from the old place, looks stunning and it felt good to make my mark.:):)
The dogs are back in their routine with an early morning walk, no more excuses for naughtiness! Both of them got a "hiding" on Sunday, they chewed one of the cane chairs while we went shopping.

Stunning day on our side, looking forward going home(only 30 minutes drive!)after work to take my birds out into the garden for a bit.

How's the weather on your side? scary stuff happening in the Pakistan & Russia...the end is nigh?

I would love to be able to sell things like that. They make everything so hard here . I am sure my kitchen would never pass the inspection because of the animals :( One lady failed because they did not like the way here septic tank looked.Will coast her $5,000. to have it redone. Such Bull! I am 51 years old if I want to try a home canned product or some home baked goods it should be my choice. A lot of people at the farmers market lost a good part of their yearly income.
Sure hope that knee will mend. I babied mine from the time I was 14 when I first blew it up.It would come and go from time to time. Last time I totaled it and it just would not mend. I tore up the cartilage really bad :0 I am going to send many good happy healing thoughts ~HUGS

I suppose an op will be on the cards, going to first try my way by building/keeping the cartilage healthy and strengthening the muscles around the joints. Looking forward working out a routine for pool exercise and going back to pilates. If possible I would rather wait for my sixties to have surgery as these replacements have time limits-would have to have another one in my eighties.
Must say the anti inflammatory has eased the pain, I was really taking strain and had to just bite the bullet. Don't think my sis will ever realize how much she helped me, I nearly threw the towel in emoticon

So how was the jam? maybe that can be your new venture: Arlene's Plum par excellence jam! There is a big market here for home made preserves, I can be your agent....nice to dream!

Oh sorry to hear that. Does the doc think it will heal or will you need surgery.hope it will just get better..although after I had my surgery I really wished I had not waited.My friend even had hers replaced and she loved it and said the recovery was not so bad. Better then the pain,
BIG HUGS
Things here are good. baked with my older grand daughter yesterday after work. She had a blast and I did too :) then we went shopping and even picked up a few chickens from some one that is moving :)
