My Monday morning started at the gym.

My daughter called me today to see if I want to meet up with her early tomorrow morning for a hike.

But of course!! With her being a busy working mommy, any time I can share with my girl is special.

“People often tell me that motivation doesn’t last and I tell them that bathing doesn’t either.” That’s why I recommend it daily.” ~Zig Ziglar

Just take care of YOU!

Look Harder

“Look for something positive in every day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.” Zig Ziglar


Photo was taken in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada while on a hike with my Man.

I can always find many positives throughout my day.

I hope your day is going well.

Enjoy a Smile

This is to help a smile to come across your face.

These beautiful photos were shared with me via email and I want to share them with all of you. I am sure you will be smiling when you look at these adorable animals. The photos are not mine, although all the comments under the photos are mine and my awesome hubby.


Let us in. We’ll behave.


Just wait guys. I’ll show you.

ATT00018_1Love you Man!!


Of course we can be friends.  You think?


I was having fun. Were you? If you’re looking for your cell phone I buried it.  ;)

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

The Secret to Good Health

Exercise is the Secret to Great Health


Photo taken yesterday while on a  5.62 km/3.49 mile hike with my awesome hubby.  Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada.

Exercise. Nutrition. Commitment.

They are three of my favorite words.

Exercise is the great key to aging.

It helps you feel younger.

I was chatting with a couple ladies at the gym early this morning.

They seemed to be baby boomers like myself and today was only their third time at the gym.

Well you can only imagine our conversation.

Yes, exercise just makes you feel GOOD and as you get stronger you feel even better.

Do something for your body.

Are you into fitness?

Be body smart and mention a new fitness plan to your doctor if you feel it is necessary.

I think anyone who has followed my blog for awhile knows how excited I get with my fitness.

Some people may get tired of hearing about ‘exercising’, I only hope to inspire someone.

Give it a try!  You just may get slightly addicted to fitness.   ;)


Dust If You Must

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better

To paint a picture or write a letter.

Bake a cake or plant a seed.

Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,

With rivers to swim and mountains to climb!

Music to hear and books to read,

Friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there

With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,

A flutter of snow, a shower of rain.

This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,

Old age will come and it’s not kind.

And when you go and go you must,

You, yourself, will make more dust.

Written by Rose Milligan.

Relax. It’s a healthy choice!

 A house becomes a home when you can write “I love you” on the furniture.

I just loved this poem and want to share with you. It makes me realize to just slow down sometimes and enjoy each and every day.  Everything does not have to be in place.

Have a beautiful day.  Take time to relax.
