Livin' the good life!

I came to SparkPeople to turn things around in my life. As I get closer to retirement, I've vowed that a rocking chair is not in my future! And it's working - after a year, I've shed the pounds, and have a much healthier outlook on life. Doesn't get much better than that!

Personal Information:
I'm a 64 year old biologist, currently living in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of SW VA. I became a biologist because I have a deep appreciation and concern for all of the beautiful creatures with whom we share our planet, but especially birds. I enjoy getting outside, hiking, bird watching, and hand crafts. Luckily for me, I live in the perfect spot to indulge in all of the above. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the local foods movement. I guess you could say that I have a long history of tree-hugging!

Other Information:
"Follow this highway
Through the canyon where the red rocks glow.
Wind through the forest.
Trace the rim edge where the pine trees grow.
And, this is what I know

Gonna make this my home."

Thanks for the massage goodie. DH gets a for real massage today. I could use one too. I'm a bit sore today from snow blowing and shoveling but at least I don't seem to have had much effect from the fall on the ice. I know exactly what you mean about the bouncing back. I should have appreciated that a whole lot more when I could.

Thankfully we did not get as much snow as they predicted. Maybe 6-7 inches? It was wind driven -- still is -- so it'll take more than one shovel event. We are more than half done -- sidewalk and mailbox are done and the driveway is half done.

No DH appointment today. They called yesterday to reschedule. I just got word that we'll reschedule Master Gardener class tonight. The weather people are still calling for considerable wind so driving would not have been good in the rural areas. I'm ready to start putting all my MG knowledge to work so Spring can come any time...as long as it's soon.

Hope all is well by you!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I don't really feel too bad this morning. The knee doesn't hurt but the heel and sciatic area do. I don't plan to do much today -- I'll save myself for the snow removal I'll need to be doing tomorrow and Wednesday.

No results for Cinder yet. I'll be calling the vet tomorrow. She's back to her normal self. I'm hoping for the best.
