JOYINKY-74 and ready for more!

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!

We love pure maple syrup too, but it's SO expensive. If we can only make what we use, that will be money saved, money earned.
Thanks for your prayers for MC. I leave her at the vet's in the morning for her surgery. I've been dreaming that she walks again.

Joy, what was the name of that posterization app again? I used it, now I've lost it!

Hi Joy, thank you so much for caring. I wish my brother didn't live across the provinces. I am in Ontario and he is in British Columbia. My sister has been sick with a cold and works full time so she has not been much of a help.

I am going to be talking to her this weekend about helping out more because I am just getting too tired and have no time for myself lately. It is taking a toll on me now. Hubby has been a big help and was so caring and attentive this evening. I enjoyed my home coming.
Thank you for caring.

Hugs Susan emoticon
