JOYINKY-73, having fun being me!

My focus today is on health and wellness, family, friends and spiritual growth. I've chosen to have my page reflect my life today; pictures from 10-13 years ago are quite different and are scattered through my gallery. Life is good!

Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity! 2014 a lot of energy was put into fixing up my house and adding more gardens.
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts in the winter months are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

Joy thanks for stopping by yesterday and commenting on my blog. It was a rough day. I feel like today will be better. I did get a short walk in yesterday. This morning I went for a long drive through the country. Saw some deer, geese, and a blue heron. Taking that drive in the country did me a lot of good. I want to thank you for being such a good friend and supporter. You continue to inspire me. I like your update in your page. Focusing on today, making memories with family and friends and living a healthy life. Hugs.

I have been WAY too busy the last few days....and tomorrow we are gone again! I LOVE all your comments to me...they ALWAYS help me because I TRUST you that you really know what I am thinking because we seem a lot alike! And, yes, I have always smiled a lot and they do stretch out the wrinkles but I really do not care a bit! Thank you always for all you have to say.....even when I am really busy (like this time of year) I NOTICE every word you write!

Actually that "photo" might be a painting. I hadn't considered that possibility. But it does look too perfect to be a photo. It was on Flickr though so it could be a clever photo. It's very pretty....whatever it is!
