     The hum of bees is the voice of the garden. ~Elizabeth Lawrence2014July 173

I was able to get a close up of this beautiful bee enjoying my wild flowers. I thought of my dear friend, DEB, as she loves bees. 

Gardening for me is my serenity.  Nature is fascinating.

                                               Enjoy Today


Enjoy your day to the fullest.

May God guide you throughout your day and I wish all good things to come your way.

Keep Laughing


 Photo bomb just before we headed out for an early morning walk.

My hubby constantly has me laughing.

I love my runs and gym workouts throughout the week, and Saturday’s we try to get out for an early morning walk. Great fun together.

Keep laughing and people will laugh with you, not at you


Do everything with so much love in your heart you would never want it any other way.”  ~Amrit Desai

Happy 4th of July weekend to all my American friends.    :)

Make The Time

                                   Make time for me time


Remember to fit in some ‘me time’.

You are important too.

If you really want to get your workout done, fit it into your schedule like an appointment.

Be consistent.

Keep the time you choose as your ‘me time’.

First thing in the morning works for me.

I love having my workout done and over with and then I can get on with my day.

Of course, I grab my ‘feel good endorphins’ and it makes me happy in the face.

Have a terrific day and don’t forget, ‘YOU’

           Gym workout is done~ Now I can enjoy my coffee.


My family calls me a ‘leopard print nut’, so it would only make sense the coffee cup I own.      ;) 

5K Run For Hospice

My daughter and I enjoyed the Hospice Hike yesterday. I am sharing photos like I promised. I am posting the link from yesterday’s post again for those of you that may of missed it.   Hospice Hike

           Here we are just before we left for our 5K Run.


     The train that gets set up in front of the park on the Hospice Hike.


Okay. My Hubby was taking photos of us girls and then he decided he needed his photo taken in front of the ambulance. He has a great sense of humor and was acting like he was really exhausted. No he did not go on the run, as someone has to take photos.  ;)


                            What can I say?  I like clowns. 


      It took a bit of coaxing to get my girl to join me. What the heck! Right!

                                     I like the mascots too.


  It was a hot and muggy day. Just about at the finish line and we are pooped.


                Can you tell we were thrilled to come through the finish line? 

                                                          We did it!! 


This nutrition tasted yum after our 5K Run.  Thank-you to our local grocery store for setting this up for all of us.


We had a great time and love to share this together.

As long as we are able we will be registering again next year. We do the Run for Mom in May and our next one will be the Breast Cancer Run in October.

To often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~Leo Buscaglia
