Hello my friends, hope you all had a wonderful day. Our weather started out cloudy this morning and a bit on the cool side but by late afternoon it had warmed up tremendously and the sun was shinning.
I started my day early..........for me that is. I arrived at Curves at 8 am and could not wrap my head around all those women being up so early. The place was packed. Marj, the trainer took me from machine too machine and showed me how to use them. I only did each machine once today as she instructed. I loved the automated voice that calls out "change stations" as believe me I was always ready to change by that time. At the end of using each machine I went to the stretch machine, and I loved this the best. It loosen's up the tight muscles in my neck, shoulders and legs. I really should of done the stretching first and plan on using that first tomorrow. I don't plan on going as early tomorrow as I did today, when I wake up I will go.
I really enjoyed the ladies today, and I am wondering if they will be the same group tomorrow, or if the same group today goes at 8 am every day. I will ask them tomorrow.
When I got home I had toast and coffee, called my friend Terry in Bonnyville, and read the newspaper. By this time it was 10:30 and I already felt I had a full day. How pathetic is that? I then made my bed up fresh, put my dishwasher through, made a spaghetti sauce for supper and dusted downstairs. By this time I was ready for lunch so settled for an ice tea and a sandwich.
I finished planting my flowers today, I had more marigolds and petunia's to plant. I have to go out tomorrow to get a couple of cages for my tomato plants as they need a bit of support. I must say the deck looks lovely so far, and I am really enjoying working with earth and getting my finger nails dirty. (If you knew me you wouldn't believe I said that)
Tonight I watched Wayne Dyer on PBS. Now I don't always agree with all his philosophy, (although mostly I do), I really enjoyed his presentation tonight. He said and I agree, we could find an excuse for anything but to be happy we must go beyond excuses. He had a young man Dan on his show who had been badly burnt as a child and he was such an inspiration. He had no hands, and just one thumb the doctors had made for him during one of his many surgeries. His face was disfigured and his hair would only grow on certain parts of his head, (although I think he was bald anyway.) It took him 7 years to learn to tie his shoes, and to this day that is what he is most proud of. He also played the drums and played them well I must say. He never complained and felt his life was a blessing and uses his life story to inspire others. His parents were in the audience and they must of been so proud of their son. He has managed to persevere and become independent. So many of us have so much and yet we complain, but when we see someone like this young man we realize our burdens are not that heavy at all. If you get a chance to watch this program I highly recommend it. Truly inspirational.
