Get Some Today

Studies show that a 10 minute walk immediately BOOSTS brain chemistry to increase HAPPINESS. Get your feel GOOD endorphins today.


Another HOT scorching day in my world. Too HOT for this girl!

Thank goodness I got out the door earlier this morning.

I am thrilled to mention it is 7 weeks today since my vein stripping surgery in my right leg and I was able to do some running.

I was able to run.   😉   

I did more brisk walking and some jogging.

Today I managed, 9.12 km/ 5.7 miles.

All this exercise is the best thing for the circulation and healing process in my leg.

I am back at the gym as well.

It makes me happy.

The ‘feel good endorphins’ are sprinkled on this girl.

So, hopefully you can get outdoors and grab some ‘feel good endorphins’.

Have a really nice day.

Heat wave is on in my world.

Even though I love summertime, I am finding as I get older the heat is not my best friend.

When your sweat is sweating it’s really too hot!!   😉

My birthday tomorrow. Another year older and more wrinkles. 

I do the best I can with the aging process.

As long as I remain positive and healthy as can be I am a happy girl.

Yes, I will be hiding more indoors with the AC going and enjoy my favorite beverage.

Wine for this girl.

Happy Weekend to you all.

Remember to be grateful for all the little things you are blessed with.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day. Enjoy Your Day.


This gorgeous butterfly is loving my wildflowers. I was thrilled to watch him and capture a few photos.

Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies celebrating today, all the Grand Daddies as well.

My Hubby and I will be celebrating with our son and daughter-in-law and our daughter and son-in-law.

We have two sweet grand kidlets as well.

We will be at our daughter’s home and enjoying good company, fun in the pool and a delicious barbeque dinner.

I wish a blessed day for all your families.

Enjoy your day to the fullest and hug your kidlets tight.   :)

Dad is a son’s first Hero and a daughter’s first love.

Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a Daddy.

Happy Father’s Day to my Angel Daddy. I know you are watching over us with a smile. We miss you.  ♥

Hope For The Best

If you hope for the best, good things will come.

Have a wonderful weekend.

My week has been active with my walks, doing home exercises and using my weights.

The running is still causing me pain in my inner thigh after my vein stripping surgery.  All in good time and then again maybe my body just wants me to continue with my brisk 3-4 mile walks.

And you know, I am content with that.

There is osteoarthritis throughout my lower back that tells me to be body smart.

I do practice what I preach and listen to my body, if it hurts, back off.

Do some kind of exercise as often as you can, believe me you will notice the difference.

Just getting out for a walk, can lift your spirits.

Have a blessed weekend. 

Sit and Think

Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.

I know I don’t mind my own company, and there are times it is nice to just sit and be quiet.

Make a Difference

Try to remain a positive influence.


Positive thinking will absolutely make your life better.

Pay attention to the goodness in your life.

Take notice of the kindness that comes your way.

Be a positive influence.

Make a difference.

Look for the positives throughout your day, rather than remembering the negative thoughts.
