I'm 75. another years has gone by, so now I am 75,and I have decided that I am not going to focus on losing weight as much as I am going to improve my eating habits. I have asthma and am on oxygen at night and can't walk long distances, I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder and now have a frozen shoulder, so that shoulders makes it difficult to do a lot of kind of exercises, so I do what I can, and if I lose a couple pounds that is a bonus, not a requirement.

I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock, sheep, 8 miniatures horses, and goats and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.

I really don't have any big expectations, cause I am not one that likes setting goals. I just want to be as healthy as I can and enjoy life, and it doesn't mean spending hours and hours walking, running, working out in a smelly germ infested gym, I work hard on the farm and that has been the way it has been for many centuries, in my family, so I think it is good enough for me.
Honest work, and knowing I should not eat as much as I do, but it is all natural food, that means I don't eat boxed or store canned food unless it is unavoidable. If you read labels, some dogs and cats eat better than some do. If I can't pronounce it, I don't eat it.
So that said I have no goals, just honest living, and no beating myself up if I have a piece of pie.

    Thanks for the blog love about my wool book with samples. It was so much fun putting them in and reading about each sample. We leave each other gift ideas in the wish list on Amazon but he never checks anywhere else to see if he can find it less expensive! I can't wait until cotton and silk arrive!!!

    I am also really enjoying this cooler weather - makes me want to just be outside. Hopefully my husband and I will finish our outside projects in another couple weeks and then maybe she'll stop watching us! She comes out about 5 minutes after we do and finds things to do until we're done!

    Thankfully, our governor will not open the schools here in California. To attempt to have children exposed to the virus, including the school workers, teachers, etc. is a huge tragedy. This will open another pandora box just like it has now since we opened up too early following our "dear leader's" advice. Pray this November there will be a huge change and a better one at that!

    Saw your comment on a page that your cats use the big dogs as mattresses. It made me smile. We had a Newf mix years ago who let my little Maltese do that! And my late cat was sure my Basset existed just to be her heated pet bed. Pets are wonderful!
