Sad day, last vacation day :(
Monday, July 14, 2014      0 comments

I always hate the last day before going back to work, if it is just 2 or 3 nights off or 2 weeks off the last day seems to be a desperate attempt to get stuff done and pick up the loose ends. Get ready for lunches, make sure chores are streamli... Read more
Another busy day on and off the farm!
Sunday, July 13, 2014      0 comments

I plucked up courage and started the spot spraying in my hay field, milk weed has become a serious problem, it is poisonous to sheep and other livestock because of the alkalies in the plant. Over the last 3-4 years it is spreading hugely, makin... Read more

All the eating that went on over the 4th and the 5th which was my 60th birthday, I still lost 2 lbs this week, it is hard to be active around people that are mostly not active, but I went for hikes and walks every day and only missed my 10K step... Read more

Vacation should last forever! I hate to go back to work, it is a good thing I still have time when I get home for a few days to do some stuff at home. Wish this could last forever!... Read more

Had a really great day, went out to an outstanding dinner tonight and surprise surprise my name was on the menu as a birthday girl. That is a first for me, they gave me a copy of the menu and just under the excellent deserts it says Happy Birth... Read more
Stress
Friday, July 04, 2014      0 comments

I think stress is my number one problem, it causes a lot of fallout like not sleeping well, raising my BP, and makes my neck hurt all the time. I tried the stress 4 week program but it doesn't seem to have really helped much. Right now there a... Read more
It is so nice to be off work for a while! Vacation here I come!
Thursday, July 03, 2014      0 comments

Nice to just relax for a while, cook because I feel like it not because it is necessary and time consuming. I have always liked to cook but when time is so squeezed like the last few years it becomes a chore. Looking forward to working on some... Read more

Hot temps today in Maine

I passed a previous high in steps yesterday with over 21,000 steps, 10.5 miles, and my legs felt it! I was on a mission to get the weeds back from the fence, first I did the two pastures behind the pond and what was left of the central pasture... Read more
Getting ready for another day of attacking nature!
Wednesday, June 25, 2014      0 comments

As soon as I eat breakfast and do chores it will be time to go back to weed whacking and fixing fences in another attempt to gain control of that little part of my land. It is kind of similar to the whole weight loss thing, you go around and fi... Read more
