Hello my friends I hope you all had a wonderful day, it was a lovely day here in Alberta, for which I am so very thankful.
I think, I am caught up on my rest. I slept 11 hours straight through last night. When I woke up this morning I knew it was going to be a great day and it was. A lazy but leisurely day for sure, and I loved every moment of it.
I had my coffee, cereal and toast on the deck. The sun was shining on my face and it felt so good I decided to read my paper out there as well. It was 11 o'clock before I had my bath and dressed for the day. I dressed and went to Curves for my work out and was weighed. I have now lost 6 lbs. with only 9 left to go. I am sure I will meet my goal before I go home for 2 weeks in July. I also have lost an inch off my waist, and 2 off my hips. I really don't want to loose on my hips as my shape is so much like the cartoon caricature, Leghorn. You know, skinny legs and bum but big around the middle....that's me. Oh well it comes off where it wants too I guess. I will try and do more exercise to reduce my middle and not work quite so hard on the leg and hip area. I only wanted to tone those areas.
When I finished my work out I went for groceries, came home and put them away. I then had a tomato sandwich for my lunch. It was too nice to stay inside so out I went to the deck and played with my flowers. I gave them a good drink of water mixed with Miracle Grow. I want them to grow faster but they are coming quite nice. My tomato plants and herbs are really growing well. I have a small strip of grass between the deck and my baby barn. I cut the grass with a whipper sniper as I don't think a lawn mover could even fit in most places there. When I finished snipping (there really isn't much grass, mostly weeds, I pulled the weeds and sprayed with round up. It usually is an ugly strip but looks pretty good now that I pulled the weeds and cut the grass. I would love to plant seeds and have a strip of wild flowers in that spot. I am going to check the Internet and see what I can do so that maybe next year I will have wild flowers growing. Just an idea.
Oh yes I wanted to ask you all, I planted gladiola bulbs on the 28th of May but I don't see anything coming up yet, is it too soon to look for some kind of stem/leaf or did I do something wrong when I planted them? If anyone knows and can advise me on this I would so appreciate it.
Tonight I watched the hockey game, congratulations to Pittsburgh Penguins and all their fans (I was pulling for Detroit) but the best team won tonight's game.
Tonight on the news I watch the elder President Bush, sky dive from a plane, from over 10,000 feet to celebrate his 85th birthday. Now I was not a fan of his son but I was very proud of the father today. He is still having fun and enjoying life at the age of 85. I think he gives seniors renewed hope, I also think seniors are our most untapped resource, we could learn so much from them. I think there should be a way to bring the young and the old together. Just think what experience and energy together could produce for our beautiful planet. My gosh I am talking as if I weren't a senior but my mind doesn't feel 62, oh but the body tells a different story.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments........Good Night my friends and
God Bless........:-) Hugs
