Adventures in Living ... Resuming in 2013

Life is one of the greatest adventures given to each one of us ... enjoy every day as much as you can ... learn to choose the things that will make you the best you can be.

My first year with SparkPeople (2008) was a success! I did manage to lose 35 pounds, Now it is 5 years later I've retired, and have decided to restart the program. I'm hoping the extra time on my hands will help me to visit daily, and the support will from teammates will help keep me on track.

Thanks for checking out my blog... I just love those pond tours. I wish I could make it to all their outings! I've seen and learned SO much just listening. I'm going to check out a de-ionizing system for our pond, the owner of the first pond credited it with the clarity of his water and it was crystal clear. He also said that the yucky algae that was thick on the bottom of his pond had started clearing up. I add beneficial bacteria weekly to ours and it helps but nothing like his was. I find these tours very inspiring too!

Hey, happy Friday and thanks for stopping by my page to say "Hello"!

It sounds like your weekend weather is going to be better than ours here in Atlanta, Ga. Today is gorgeous but we're getting rain Sat-Sun. Not what a sun-loving girl wants to hear!

Had another loss last night at my weigh-in, lost 2.2 this week.

Hope you have a great weekend and get plenty of gardening done!
