I also kept my promise to myself and walked my first 5k. I'm proud of myself!Went out early and caught the BlueBlood Moon this morning. Very beautiful! So, glad I got up to see it! Not the best pic but you can tell the eclipse is starting.I finally did it! I hiked Mt. Rubidoux yesterday. Took forever but I did it. Also, the tail end of a beautiful sunset. Doing it again next week. Wish me luck.Just sharing.I'm putting my feet up. 😁Me after walking the mountain this morning. Idk why its sideways.ðŸ™„Me after walking the mountain this morning. Idk why its sideways.ðŸ™„Am I doing this right? #coach
Now y'all see my issue.🤔Took the mountain on again today. Made it to the top! Took 95 minutes to do the full circuit.just proved i can really move it. made it to my son's school in 15 mins! next fastest time is 19 mins. getting there. yes, i was late😥🙄Not the most beautiful photo but it is done. I thought I'd share #BeforeAndAfter#BeforeAndAfter One sweaty hot mess!😅I like this route better so I'm going to keep working it until I'm down to one hour. Then next month it's on to Mt. Rubidoux.#BeforeAndAfterToday's walk. At first wasn't going to do it cause I have a cold, my knee hurts, et cetra, et cetra. Then was only going to walk my usual route to school with my son. Soooooo, 4 miles later I was home.😅 #moveitA little bit of happiness to share with you. Some green beans from a forgotten planting and one of 2 hummingbirds that were hanging out this morning. I'll put out a feeder so they'll hangout more often.Walking this morning at the park. This park is a favorite to walk but it's not close to home. Was speeding right along there at one point.
Hope ya'll are having a great Sunday. 🕊My shadow and I on the way to school. Foggy and nice now but up to 98°today. Finished my time but was going slow. What counts is that I completed my task.Good Wednesday to everyone. 🤗 I'm about 4#s down which is good. My breathing has improved which is way better. Today I jogged. According to Spark anything over 5mph is a jog. So I am officially a jogger.😁 I did that listening to Ludacris. Jogging lasted for all of 5 mins but I did it!Hope ya'll had a great day today. Thanks for the support from everyone. Ya'll gonna crush those goals.
This guy was seen on my morning walk.Good morning all. Hope everyone is having a safe and fun day today.
Went out for a walk earlier this morning at The Park. I love going there. It was a family affair.
The tall guy is training for the NYC Marathon. I'm training for a 5k and My Shadow came to race us both on his scooter. He beat me.😅Are there any Sparkers in NYC that would care to share some travel/tourist advice? I'm headed up there for 9 days. I'll be there from 10/27 to 11/04.
I'm excited to be going to experience a season other than HOT.
We went this summer for a few days as a family but now I get to go on my own for the most part. I'm excitedly scared. I have a tendency to get lost. Lol... extra steps.Slowly improving. I was listening to Eminem for my jogging period.This is why you wear dark colors to yoga! Lol😅 First day of 30 days!Day 2 of yoga. My 'sweat' shirt; it was 2 shades lighter. So far, so good.#theselflovemethod #breatheinbreathout
This is me doing MY plow. No it wasn't close to THIS plow. But I did it. The other is a work towards. This yoga stuff is challenging. I like that. Hope ya'll had a good day.Today walking my son to and from school. Yesterday same plus errands. Hey check this out! This is breakfast. This is super good for me. I hope to continue this throughout the day. I didn't eat the whole pan. Yay me! I only ate 1 tortilla. Also, yay me!
#resisted a food temptationJust wanted to share today's weather here in the I.E..While it's not hurricane winds it is windy. It's expected to be like this until Wednesday. Pic of weather and the other two are the neighbor's tree in the street and that's better than in their house.House cleaning today. Used those moves to clean the shower/tub area. 😁Hope everyone is having a great day.I'm here in Manhattan somewhere. I think on the border of Hells Kitchen. This gentleman let me take a pic of him and his place of business. We had the best conversation.😀 Apparently my request isn't so very unusual. So, anyways if y'all know any of these ladies and gentlemen tell them thanks for me. They are doing an awesome job!This is Sunday evening. Can you, believe it's not even 6pm yet? This is my friend. She's never done this sort of thing before. She finished her first ever marathon. She participated in the world's biggest in NYC. She's 55 and she said the person who helped her with her pacing was 85 yrs old. So, they give me hope for my future.Good morning everyone. My two youngest sharing mom time. Now I'm gonna get coffee. Have a great day.Look at these hot messes. They've survived a lot of crap this year. We've all survived a lot of crap this year. If they can still give sweet fruit even though they aren't pretty by a long shot; then we can keep on keeping on. All it takes is a little belief in ourselves.
I took these pics today. Cali weather😏😍Went to my fave park this afternoon to get 2019 started right. Tried to play a little soccer with the guys. Total lol moment.
Right now I'm the only one awake in my house!😂 Idk it must have been too much partying for them. Y'all see that 70lb cat we have?! He's snoring.
Well good night everyone. Hope this first day of a new year was a great one.Went to the snow today. I walked around and ppl watched. My kids gained new skills. Snowboard and skiing. Neither of which I will be taking up any time ever. But I might try snow shoeing one day. That seems like fun. 😀 It started snowing while we were there. That was cool...Haha. I could have hung out for awhile to watch that but we didn't want to get stuck on the mountain. Anyways hope this first 5 days of the year have been treating you kindly and you've been exceeding your expectations.Good morning all. Have a great day crushing it. The gun show yesterday was hysterical y'all. Some pics from my day yesterday. View from the plane. View while driving. My guys.The boys and I. Me supervising the building of a snowman. You can see my shadow. Yes, that's the youngest one really enjoying snow.😁We went to this aerospace museum to day to kill some time. Was really cool. Would totally go back again. Now I'll make more of an effort to go to the ones closer to home.Pics of me and the Shadow while snowshoeing. Right before I ate it. My Shadow trying to swim in the snow. Him having a blast. Me after I finally made it out. I look mad cause I have sweat, snow and the sun in my eyes. Can you see how pristine the snow was before we got to it? 😁I went to the dietitian yesterday. I have a few new tools to add to my arsenal. Things I need to change up. But overall it was insightful. I go back in a month with great progress hopefully.
So far this year I've lost 2.8#s. That leaves only 18 more by my birthday.
This guy was hanging out at the office.Proud of myself today. I went out adulting.
Tired and kinda sore today. Had PT yesterday and found all those tight ligaments and muscles. Then ended up walking all over the place today. Tmrw will be more of the same. I'm getting out my big girl britches to wear.
Have a good night all.Went for a walk with the family before it started raining too hard. Mostly it was chilly and windy. If you're from my area you may recognize where we walked.I've been going to PT and feeling stronger. Eating is going alright. Could be better but I'm sticking to my times and mostly within calories.
Been kinda blech lately. Winter is still winter even if we don't have everyone else's extremes. So, I'll show you a little bit of spring. It'll be here soon.
This was funny. I'm sharing. https://youtu.be/S9iKC7vb-TsGood morning all. I hope you had a restful night. I have a cold that only strikes after bedtime. So, not too restful for me.
Went to "Dad and Donuts" at Shadow's school this morning. It was so nice seeing all those Dads and males coming to represent.
Yes, I ate the donut. It was good. If it had been Krispy Kreme I would have passed. I also drank a bottle of water.
This is a close up of our grass. This is our grass. Beautiful mountains; bad pic. And my accomplishment for the day.🖖Proud of myself today. Got my steps in. Did some PT. Ate pretty well. Drank mostly hot tea today cause it's cold. Saw a lower number on the scale but can't claim it yet. I have to see it at least 3x. Had a smoothie for lunch and a sensible dinner. Lol. I would just like to give a shout out to Pinterest. Stuffed bell pepper.
Been reading about y'all. You are all doing fantastic jobs! This adulting thing is hard but you're doing it with such grace. Hugs and blessings to you all.Hey, guys! Check this out! Yesterday was better than I thought. Per dietitian I'm supposed to shoot for 1600kcal(?) and Spark 2500 w/o exercise. Plus I skipped dessert because it was too late. I claim #NSV! Thank you and have a great day.Well, y'all tell me what you think of lunch. Also, I think maybe this can be a keto meal. I really liked it. I think it's good basic recipe. Shout out once again to Pinterest. 😀https://pin.it/xzql5wb5r43oz3Good morning all. Its Monday! Yay! We woke up! We're loved! YOU ARE LOVED!!! Ya know now; so don't forget. We are blessed with another day. We need to go out and embrace it. Share a smile.😁
Yep, I feel good today emotionally and mentally. Body is mending. Debating on PT cause breathing is still iffy. I'll probably go. Anyways best wishes for a great day.😂Good afternoon all.🤗Hope this day has been good to you. I've been more energetic lately. Doing more in general. Most amazing to me right now is I'm feeling really happy. Like soul happy not surface happy. I like it. Have a good rest if the week. 🌻🐝Well I did it.😅Yesterday was a good day overall. I was surprised with these last night. I've really got to step my game up. Planning on today being a better day. Excited because I'm going to hang out with my friend Sunday. Party like a rock star y'all! Have a fantastic 3 day wknd. Be kind to yourself and others.Good morning everyone. Hope you're having a fantastic day. Just got back from the farmer's market. I went with Shadow. He treated me to tamales from The Tamale Guy. Actual name of the business.😀 They were so good. I love the market. Almost everything I bought was grown within 15 minutes of me. Except the honey; cause, ya know, bees.🐝 The cheese and hummus are within an hours drive. Have a great rest of the weekend.Made target for exercise minutes and calories burned for the week. Clothes are a smidge looser. Onward and upward. Or as Buzz says, "To infinity and beyond!" Good night Sparkies.Enjoy. Top The Man's view of Chicago. Bottom my view from my house.I really thought we were going to have snow. I was not dressed warm enough today.🙄 Hot tea for me now.A little bit of California springtime. Today was a lovely day to get outside. It's been raining off and on for the last couple of weeks.
The blossoms are from my Aprium (apricot/plum)tree. I'm hoping that this year we get fruit. I also, wielded the weed whacker for about an hour. The weeds are trying to gain the upper hand. I whacked them good...lol. Tmrw the battle will continue.
Have a good night. Rest well. Tmrw we begin again.Hey, hope y'all are having a great Friday eve.
Haven't been doing my best and it shows. Mostly in my attitude. I could teach Grumpy a thing or two. But I'm doing better now.
In the first time in forever I completed a solid hour of movement and completed my step goal. I also went swimming yesterday for about 40 mins. Then I proceeded to boil myself in the hot tub. I love hot tubs.💕Plus food was good too. So, yesterday was a good day. Pics of the flowers in my yard.Just sharing a little bit of the cool stuff from today. My baby tree is going to give us fruit this year! Excited. My rose bush is finally blooming. New music my oldest son I triduced me to. It's really good. Have a great weekend everyone. Keep pushing play.So, today I was going over the last week and declared it a good week. I'm feeling better physically and emotionally. My eating was more on point. Things are coming together bit by bit. I don't feel quite so directionless and more like I'm accomplishing something.
My SO says that I should only use wear this as a sleep shirt now. What do you guys think?Our early this morning. Getting back into the groove.Posted a photoSorry all, I was trying to fix my flower and accidentally posted it. This flower was a surprise. Where it popped up is surrounded by weeds as you can see. Also, nothing has grown in that spot for the last 2 yrs! Not to mention the trash cans hid it. So, anyway I think that we can all be this flower.Just wanted to share a pic of my soon to be avocados. Soon my pretties.😋Just got home from the movies. We went to see End Game. It was AWESOME! I laughed. I cried. I was asked repeatedly why I was crying. It was really good. I went with the menfolk and the neighbor boy. I think it's going to have to be a theater repeat for me.🤩 Hope y'all are having a fantastic evening. Have an even better week. Enjoy the time with your loved ones. Trust me I know it's hard sometimes. Boy is it hard. But work on it. Peace and roses everyone.🌹🌹☮☯️Hey, guys had some dental surgery today. Off solid foods for a week. Any suggestions for variety? Bought these to try but can't tell if I like them because my mouth still tastes like medicine.Posted a photoI made pickles yesterday. They're pretty darn good. My poppies are 'poppin'. It appears something else is going to join them soon. So, what do y'all think of this shoe?😉 Have a good evening.Hope y'all had a great Monday. I went to my job orientation. Got up super early to make sure we all made it out of the house on time. Been all over the world today. I'm pooped. But as Ice Cube said, "Today was a good day." Have a great evening and a fantastic Tuesday.Our day out today. Lots of fun. Food choices pretty good. 3way split on the banana split. Ate a mini cassadilla from Taco Bell 200 cal snack/ late lunch.
I love how the top floor of the apartment building was in the clouds.
Do you car buffs know what type of car this is? Engine sounds like a beast. Wasted on the 405 though. Xoxo everyone. Have a great week.Does anyone know what the purple flowers are? More surprising survivors. Also; my avocados are growing. Growing things always make me happy. Have a great day everyone.
@MIAMI-LILY(?) My boys are willing to try blueberry pizza.😋This week I have walked 28.5 miles. The most I've walked in quite awhile. I feel sore and strong at the same time. I'm also tired. But what mom isn't a little sleep deprived?
I successfully got the Shadow to and from summer camp on time every day.
A pic of my mandarins coming in. The other fruit are my apriums. They're almost ready! I totally love the idea of fresh fruit off of the tree.I'm dead. 🤪😭Plus moving furniture at work. Hopefully less tmrw. Gotta ice the knee. Have a great night everyone.Going to the Bay area to cool off for a few days. I'll be walking almost daily. I suspect everyday will be a 10000+ step day. Looking forward to the challenge. I should be down a couple pounds when I get home.Good morning everyone. I'm packing up getting ready to leave the beautifully cool Bay area. Definitely coming back again! Never enough time to see it all.
While here someone told me that if I walked a mile it's like walking 3 miles on flat land. I sure hope so.😁 That means I walked at least 15 miles.😉Some of the animals I ran into today. Also, a windmill.Dog Day?! Bring on all the fur babies! Here's my guy with his toy. He's also really good at impersonating a cat. 😉 Have a great eveningI did my first of four 5ks today. I got passed up by old ladies using walkers. Ppl pushing double strollers raced pass me. Kinda discouraging. Decided to be Dory and just keep walking. Sang "Don't Stop Believing" to myself.
Long story short; I accomplished my goals. I didn't die. I finished. I wasn't last and I didn't stop. I finished in 1hr 8 mins. That is actually a PR cuz the last one was an hr and 12 mins.Walked the mount today. Took about an hour and 30. I didn't go to the cross or flag up top. That was beyond me today. Maybe in 2 weeks I'll get it. That's 3 more climbs.
Gotta get the hill training in cause my last 2 races are on hilly terrain.
Pics of me today. Notice I was dry at the start. Then me at mile one. 3rd at my halfway point. 4th at 3/4 of the way done. I sat on towel on the way home cause I was soaked.😬
Hope everyone has a good rest of the week. Y'all are rock stars!🤩🎇Went to the farmer's market and got the best yogurt. Rose flavor; who knew?! With real rose petals! I also bought a spicy salad mix. Went to the Alpine place in Torrance. The market there is great. We bought fresh pumpernickel bread, assorted deli meats (leberwurst, yum!) and a beer. With that we had our own Oktoberfest. 🎉🥨🍻Happy Halloween! Hope everyone has a fantastic evening. I'll be burning calories walking tonight.👻Welp; I did it. Had serious doubts about completion but I got'er done. I am truly surprised I got such a good time. Actually it's my worst time so far but it could've been worse. Rancho Palos Verdes is beautiful but damn. Preperation is definitely key.
I did get to cheer on the half marathoners. That was fun.
Well I'm going to finish my day out and get some well deserved rest.Wanted to thank you all for the love and support you give freely. It's a huge help. You're the best cheerleaders out there. Keep pushing play.
This is a pic of The Man after finishing The New York Marathon. He literally ran into ppl he hasn't seen in at least a year. She was there running on her honeymoon. Crazy small world.Happy Tuesday all. Hope it was a good one for you. I had a good day. I played chair volleyball with the customers at work. Lots of hilarity ensued.😂 We will never be professionals but we will enjoy ourselves thoroughly.
I'm slowly getting ready for Thanksgiving. It's just going to be the five of us this year. I'm trying to figure out how to cut all my recipes down. Somehow it's easier for me to cook for 2 or 20 but nothing in between.
Wishing you all a good night and wonderful dreams.Good morning everyone. Hope y'all's day was good yesterday. Looks like it was. I was feeling kinda icky yesterday so I'm doing the do today.
This is the view outside my backdoor at about 6 and 7:40 this morning. It's a brisk 39°F or 3.9°C right now.
Well gotta get back to prepping and cooking. Peace and love to everyone.❤🤩Yesterday afternoon about an hour after the rain.The moon last night. Magical beauty.Playing with doggo. He's a real goofball. First he refused to take a pic with his pop. Then he came right over to me laughing and took a selfie with me. Then a mom and son photo. Finally, deigned to take one with pop. Love my boy.Top left the moon. Bottom left still the moon. Right also the moon. On this one I zoomed in and got part of her face. These were all taken in about 10 minutes this evening. Shows how clear it is tonight.
This is the final post for the evening. I just wanted to share a little bit of the beauty I've seen the last couple of days. Have a great evening. Blessings to you and yours. Tomorrow we drink coffee!😁A better pic if Santa and Mrs. Claus. Some of the decorations lining the path. Me trying to show a lot of my fellow walkers. A cute Christmas outfit. Maybe next year I'll dress up.Chair volleyball is so much fun! Played for an hour today. Lots of stretching and reaching and lunging. Also, lots and lots of laughing. Good for the soul and the abs. 😂 Have a good evening. May tmrw shine brightly upon us.
This evening's view from my couch. My new baby to nurse back to health. It's a jujube tree; also known as a Chinese date tree. Right now it's mostly a stick.Good morning. Have a great day. It's cold here. I'm excited to see actual frost on the grass and cars. It means its winter here. Lol.😁🧣🧤I bought 2 new workout DVDS. I really like both of these ladies. Different styles but I enjoy them both.
Nine more days in this decade. Crazy thought?! Have a good evening. 🤗Merry merry Christmas everyone! Blessings to one and all!
A local house and this morning. 🎅🤶A single star and the moon. This photo doesn't do it justice. Have a good evening.💥Selfie for Self Esteem💥
That is my arm. In that arm is a concealed weapon. In 2020 I will be working on revealing it more. 💪
I am wildly excited to see and feel the changes my body is undergoing. I'm thinking of this journey as being pregnant. It'll take longer than 9 months to give birth to a new me but the wait will be worth it.😄
Happy happy New Year everyone!🥳🎉🍾Who got up and drank H2O? This girl. Took their vitamins? This girl. Did 15 mins of yoga? This girl! Who alarmed their husband when he came in to find her on the floor? This girl. LOL. 😜 On schedule for a walk later today. This girl! 2020 is off to a good start! Also, second mug of coffee is on the way.🤗Watching the Rose Parade, again. This is like one of my favorite traditions. The theme this year is hope. I think this is a great thing for ALL of us to cultivate this year.
This is a local band from Moreno Valley. They have applied to perform 2 other times at the Rose Parade. Perseverance and hope got them here today. It'll do good for all of us to remember them when we're feeling defeated.Had a night out with The Man. Had lots of fun. Went to the Festival of Lights and walked a bit. Had dinner at Heroes. Wow! The food portions are crazy.
Oh yeah, what do y'all think of the new pants?
Have a good night and a fantastic week. 🤗Yesterday was not a good food day at all. Everything else was pretty on point though. Today was better food wise. I also crushed it with Jessica Smith Get Strong DVD. We did the 1st program. Then I did chair exercises with the crazy plate dancing lady.🤪I can't think of the name of the DVD right now. But you know who I mean if you've used it. She's certainly enthusiastic.
I found a pic.Tried these today. Tasty but a little dry. Texture was good. I bought them at Ralphs. Obviously on sale. I think they were maybe $6 regular price. The brand is UNCUT. Would purchase again. Useful for Meatless Monday.Say hello to my little friend.I did this. A very intense 10 minutes for me. It's a Jessica Smith one. I may go back for more. I feel like my thighs are going to feel this more than my abs. I'll let you know tmrw.This morning's walk. Usually you can see the stores 2 blocks away. Was a nice walk with MyShadow and my pup pup🐕 Yesterday was 80° today not so much.
So, as predicted yesterday's quick 10 minute workout was definitely more noticed in my thighs. Also, in my lower abdomen.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Tmrw is a great day to crush those goals. 💪💥Had a good day out with my kiddo and The Man. Very early morning grocery shopping. Lots of veggies in the cart. Then on to the farmers' market. I love going there. So much interesting stuff to see and people to talk to. I bought these things. Microgreens, lummus( hummus made from lentils), cherimoya, fudge and a great seasoning for seafood.
Hope y'all are having a super Sunday. Next week we crush it!💥👍🖖Here's my guy. He's pretending to not see me. He was an unexpectedly given to us 2 years ago. Can't imagine my days without him.From my front yard. Sharing a little early spring with y'all. Hope your weekend has been both fun filled and restful. From my front yard. Sharing a little early spring with y'all. Hope your weekend has been both fun filled and restful. I've started painting more. I'm not great at it by any means but it's soothing. The top left is in progress. I'll share the finished outcome when I'm done. Anyways do what you're not great at because it makes you happy. You'll get better as you go along.Before I head to bed. I just wanted to thank you all for your support and kindness. Y'all rock the house. Hugs to all of you. If you're in snow country I'm sending ☕🌹🐕. Something to warm your heart up. Keeping you in my prayers.I've been looking for new bathing suits because I'm not fitting in the ones I have. Kinda sad. I have a really cute one.TORRID has awesome suits! Up to a size 30. Plus they have models wearing the suits that approximate your body size so you'll know how they look. This person is wearing their size 4 and she's 5'8".So, my friend and I and our kiddos went out today. A fun educational day. The weather was delightful and tmrw it will rain. Here's some pics of our day. I've lived here most of my life and I don't think I've ever been here before. I'll definitely go back. Only $5 to park all day! You could really spend the day there.
The top right pic isn't just a patch of dirt. Two pics of the view and two pics from inside the museum. I have more pics I'll post later.That Sunkist building still exists in town. Those are huge grapefruits. I had to zoom in cause they were down the hill from me. More of the view. One of my goals is to be outside more. Cause just being outside is good for the soul. And it adds to step totals😁Using these DVDS this week. They are so much fun. If you don't cheat the chair exercise one is gonna kick your tush. Never thought there'd be a day when I said that.😁Good morning all. Happy Sunday. Kinda rainy here today. That's good because we're already in a drought this year. All the rain and snow stayed back east. Greedy easterners. But I am praying y'all are staying safe, dry and warm.
Pics from the last few days. Me by an almond tree at my fave park. View from my walk. Speed and time from my walk. The guns are slowly coming out of concealment. Avocado buds and my aprium baby.

Hang tough y'all.💪💥🖖The happier and prettier side of life right now. A new friend for my doggo.Did my own chair exercises today to some hard core rap and a little rock.

I named it LOCKDOWN 2020.When your hair salon is closed but your dog groomer has a cancelation.They're going to be offering school online in the next week or so! Thank God! 🎉

Have a great day and tell your ppl that you love them.Winning Easter egg contestant.Signed up for a DoYouYoga? challenge for 14 days it started today. I'm out of shape.🙄 But plan on getting into better shape. Also, if all goes well I still get to train for my 5ks later this year. Woo! So, I need to get back on the exercise train.
Me and the kiddos out for walkies.New York 2017 and me feeding ostriches near Solvang last summer. Just wanna say travel is good for the soul.Did a version of this the other day. I had a good laugh. Basically, you're supposed to roll yourself into a ball. If you're an acrobat I think you'd roll all the way over and do the splits or something cool. I just looked like a spasming turtle on my back.Made chicken and pastry for dinner tonight. First time making it. Came out pretty good. Did day 11 of challenge. Deceptively easy looking. Tmrw will be a rest day from yoga. Only 3 more days left in this challenge. Then on to a different one. Hope y'all had a good day. We're heading into a heatwave here. Have a great day tmrw.💥💪🖖Did this today. Why are instructors so cheerful while inflicting torture? Another "This looks easy". Turned to " Please, please make her stop". Luckily it's only for a short while. Tmrw it's full body plank flow. I'll probably be in legit tears. Then I'll go back and ask for more. Cuz; ya know, endorphins. Lol. Hope ur wknd is going good. Try to stay dry, warm or cool depending on ur area of the world.💪💥🌞🖖This was me and The Man in 2018 and this is me now. I do in fact have a neck. It was on a rumor before. When the world really opens y'all gotta go see Zumanity. That is one sexy show.🔥 #BeforeAndAfterThis is what we've been up to. Plus a lady bug. My sink full of lemons and grapefruit a man hooked me up with. Plus 6 yards of soil being dumped.This boy turned 12 today! Not only that, he's closing in on my height. Cannot believe it. My aunt dropped off that book for him today. That is an uber close up of requested dessert for the day. Oreo brownies. Box and package but made with love.
Gotta keep living even tho; ya know. I see some of you had awesome days today and others had fantastically awesome days. Great! Still others could use a hug. So, I gonna give u a virtual hug. Blessings to you all and thanks.My son did dishes and swept without me asking. He also made breakfast for everyone. My Mother's Day gift from my aunt. I think it's going to be a nice little read.
Happy day today.These are some of the fruits of my labor. Haha. You've got a tomato, my sunflower patch, an aprium, an avocado, and my wild patch. Some of the sunflowers are going to be over 7ft tall! I planted the jasmine but the mint was already there. I may add a different flavor of mint to the bunch that's already there.The other little flowers are unknown to me. Then of course there's my boy. He's interested in everything. TTYL. A little more from yard. The top of a sunflower. This one is already 3ft tall. One azalea bloom. Gardenia has one of the best scents ever. I was visited by a baby praying mantis. He even posed for me. Truthfully the tag for the other white flower disappeared; so I can't tell you what it is. But the purple flower is from the eggplant. I'm excited because I bought 2 blueberry bushes. ðŸ˜‹
Have a good evening. Hope the day was good. Sleep well. Actually got my walk in this morning. Haven't been doing much of anything but gaining weight. But I did my 2 miles today.
Some of the greenery I saw while out. The top left those colors are on the same plant. Idk the name of this bush but the flowers are sure pretty. White Bougainvillea, a white rose and wisteria.
Here's hoping you have a nice cool day. Last day of the heatwave here. Then it'll go back to regular hot. ðŸ––ðŸ¾These are my sunflowers. Happy flowers. Really big flowers. The yellow one is a pic from my backyard. In one of the pics you can bare k y see the too of my head. That flower is still a foot or more taller than me and I'm 5'9". That weird looking thing is a ðŸŒ» before it blooms. Good Sunday to you all. Hope it's been a good one. Every morning when I get up these paws are there to greet me. Apriums are ripe and delicious I might add. Just the right amount of sweet and tart. Another sunflower. My blueberries are finally turning blue. Yay! Finally, a beautiful yellow squash flower. Peace and love y'all.ðŸ––ðŸ¾ðŸ¦„My son took these and asked that I share. Close ups of synflower buds. The color range of them. A lace wing and our best boy.My son took these and asked that I share.

Why don't the bouquets have scent anymore? Good morning all! Have a sun shiney day!Yes, I'm kinda obsessed about the sunflowers. I really wasn't expecting them to do so well. So, I'm astounded.

Its kind of a burgundy color.Last post for the night. Watermelon salad. Simple to make and tastes delicious. Google it; there's at least 50 recipes. I kinda merged a couple. Painting I did today. Correctly mixed media art. I used glitter. ðŸ˜ My boy sharing a laugh with me. More sun shine. Have a good night everyone. Blessings and hugs to you all. ðŸ––ðŸ¾ðŸ¤ŸðŸ½â¤ðŸ¦„Went to the beach yesterday. It was so nice and empty. Partly because of the time 10 AM and other factors. Clearest water I've seen. You could actually see the kelp coming for you in the waves.ðŸ˜† It was good to be there. As long as everyone behaves and the beaches don't get shut down we're going to go at least once a month.
We all take better pictures but sunscreen, saltwater and glare take a toll on the eyes. ðŸ˜This bird hung out with us for 15 minutes. The boys and I were chatting with it.Good morning all. Happy Sunday! Here's a little bit of my garden for you. My new little babies. Top right is a cucumber, bottom right is SugarBaby watermelon and bottom left will be an orange fleshed watermelon. There is of course the inspector ever vigilant. ðŸ˜„Good morning all. Happy Sunday! Here's a little bit of my garden for you. My new little babies.

Hope your week has been going well. Doing a 14 day quarantine since we went to the beach with friends. Cause we suck at social distancing from family/friends.Have a good weekend. From my garden. Yay!This is cinnamon basil. It can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. It smells absolutely devine. Taste delicious. I recommend it. I'm going to cut a bunch of it and make pesto with it. I'll probably use ricotta because I want the basil to stand out. I'll let you know how it goes.The inspector resting after doing his rounds. The bottom right corner is my melon jungle. Hope y'all had a good day. Good morning. Have a great day everyone. A cool pic I took the other day.Good morning! Happy Friday!
Dogwood 😆This is collage of the other part of my backyard. My son is putting water in our 'pond' in our mini citrus 'grove'. What other people call weeds and rubble; I call a wildlife refuge. I put a bird feeder and birdbath in there. After all if you build it they will come. Then a pic of our apricot tree.
I'll show pics when everything is cleaned up more. This is only the beginning.
Hoping y'all had a good weekend. Enjoy your week and try to stay cool. Good morning. Happy Monday. Look what I made this morning! First time ever making actual bread ðŸž! Proud! If you're gonna be a wet blanket go put out someone else's flame. Just saying. Anyways have a fantastic sparkly day!ðŸ¦„ðŸ––ðŸ¾Good morning. Happy Monday. Look what I made this morning!

The weather app says its actively raining right now. It is not. I think its just going to be super hot and muggy the rest of the day. Not something we get too often in my part of So Cal.
