Hmm...decided to check back on here and I like to never found my page. I am grateful for this system that taught me how to better analyze the food labels and adhere to certain numbers. I was allowed to make an account with the new site but the o... Read more

Saddened by the news of this site closing but I am working to glean the information that I have come to rely on for planning my daily meals and exercise. I am amazed at how long and well Spark People has run. The site has been a blessing but lik... Read more

Today was a Costco Day. I discovered that seniors could actually get a head start on shopping so that was a boon. However the farrier showed up 15 minutes early so I rushed to get cold stuff in freezer and fridge. We got Lady trimmed and I wrest... Read more

I did better yesterday but fell off a bit late in the evening. The reason I did well early on is that I hit the ground running. I immediately began to work on making my path through the yard tracking wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow from the barn t... Read more

Wow...June has arrived ....with more rain. It was raining so much that I didn't go downtown to garden for the scheduled workday. I prefer deadheading roses in dry weather...just saying. That's ok because there is always a window during rainy wea... Read more

This is the last day of May and while I did not hit my goal, I learned a little more about myself and I am back on track. Funny part was that my weight was heavier this morning than later in the afternoon so I know I am headed back in the right ... Read more

Emerging into a new time with big plans. I joined one of the challenge groups and there is lots to get in order before family and friends come out here the next couple of months. I spent 20 minutes just pulling long grasses and hedge parsley to ... Read more

Yesterday was just a lost day. After realizing that the suddenly enlarging joint was the result of osteosarcoma on my livestock guardian and her subsequent euthanasia, I came to grips with the fact that it was time to let go of my beautiful but ... Read more

Second dry day in a row, weatherwise. The wind is moderate and I spent five hours outside so I am a bit spent. The gardeners met today for the first time in months. We had a large turnout. I took notes for minutes between train whistles and semi... Read more

Midway through my day and I finally got my tracking done. I made it to the board meeting for the garden and picked up bug spray for around the house so that and 150 lbs of feed have yet to be put up. The hay was stacked yesterday, though and aft... Read more

Tuesday now and early on the weather appeared fairly benign...enough that I set out for the feed store to collect 9 bales of hay. On the way which is 17 miles out I drove through sprinkles, rain and finally bright sun and blue skies. The hay pur... Read more

More rain! a pattern. While the plants are growing this makes being outside in my favorite environment, less than inviting. The pigeons are feeding more babies and the duck finds grazing in the clover for floaties, irresistible. T... Read more

Keeping my beloved cat awake for the past hour. Retirees are just tough on pets, my cat reminds me as he quizzically taps my elbow and yawns while readjusting himself on the desk. A soft Irish tune reels as I contemplate wrapping up my early mor... Read more

Overcast Saturday but so far the rain is not falling. Today is a good day for some organizing so I hit the sheep fold. The tractor is handy to deep clean the mounds of spent hay and dirt which I ladled over rock on the periphery of the arena. I'... Read more

Waking to a quiet morning. Possibly on the downhill side of the daily rains. Today I will garden more and immerse myself into a lush green world of tall grasses, herbs and wildflowers. I will see vining canopies where there are dead shrubs and s... Read more
