I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    Boy, south TX. is like a yo-yo with the temps in the spring time! 2 one day and up to 99 then back to the 60's!! Not sure how to dress but I am always hot so shorts feel good to me. I don't think I realized you had a fractured bone. Of course you may have said something and I have forgotten. Too many things on the mind lately!! I hope the weather improves for you. At least the snow is all north but I am sure you get the winds out of the north too. Hugs!

    Hi Deena, hope you are doing well. I have been really busy with my daughter and the Women’s Club we have joined. We have had a lot of rain off and on but no snow thank goodness. I hope you have a good week! emoticon

    Egrets are beautiful birds though. We don't have as many here, but there are a few. It is mating season right now. One reason the Doves are talking a lot. We heard them last night inbetween the rains. Once the sun goes down they are quiet. So right now is chatter time.

    Is this the Dove you are hearing? It's my favorite.

    Lately we mostly have the Collared Dove in our yard. They are pretty too.
