Enough is Enough!

Ever wonder why people stop doing what makes them happy and healthy? Mostly because bad is fun! I'm one of those people who fall off the wagon of healthy eating over and over and over...

But enough is enough!

Whenever I eat healthy and exercise I always feel so stable and grounded...and happy! So, now that I once again feel like crap, I'll go ahead and snivel, crawl and sulk back to the land of health...

The workouts have already started (okay, one week IS a start!)

And the healthy eating begins tomorrow (today was not good -- not bad, but certainly not good).

Fingers crossed, knock on wood, and here's to actually REMEMBERING that I'm back ON the wagon...

Happy Birthday to Me!

I spent the morning in my lovely new (almost completed) garden. What a beautiful morning, complete with a birthday bouquet of bright flowers from my H.

My Own Little Paradise...

We've been working on the backyard recently - trying to reclaim it from the neglect over winter, and I am happy to say that it is coming along really well! I refurb'd my hanging baskets, putting in fresh flowers and plants, and this time I tilled in some time-release Osmocote so I wouldn't have to drench myself with Miracle Grow as I contorted on the top rung of a step ladder. Not fun. The Osmocote should feed the plants for about four months (Yay), and I made sure to till it in deep so the birds wouldn't have it all for breakfast.

I finished planting my veggies in a side bed yesterday, and I'm very happy to say that the first tomato plant I put in has tomatoes on it. As of this writing, I have not spotted any of those U-G-L-Y hornworms, but I am watching and waiting... War is hell, but sometimes it's the only solution...

Today the old furniture got put on the side of the house, ready for the bulky item pickup on Thursday, and the new bistro set is on the patio. Later we'll go get a few more colorful plants, get those in, and then a little nip and tuck at the right time, and it will be my own little heaven on earth.



Watching a Genius at Work

Recently I had the absolute proud pleasure of watching H teach a seminar. I was so proud of how wonderfully he handled himself, and was very pleased by the audience's reaction to him - notetaking, nodding and laughing at all the appropriate times, and then a stream of handshakes and thank you's at the end.

You rock, H!!
