A new me.

Hi I'm Martha-Ann.
I WILL endeavour to reach the goal I've set myself.
I CAN do it.
I want to be healthier and eat better.
I've had (still have) a few health problems but I've beaten cancer and now I'm just getting on with life.

I love SparkPeople.
It has everything I could ask for.
Good advice, great ideas but most of all friendship.
The people I've met through this site are wonderful and are helping me towards a better, healthier way ...

THANKYOU.

This is a Sanskrit proverb by the fifth century poet Kalidasa, it seems to sum things up perfectly.

Salutation to the Dawn.

Listen to the salutation of the dawn!
Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence.

The bliss of growth,
The splendour of action,
The glory of power...

For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

My Goals:
I want to feel more confident about myself.

I want to work on small goals of 10lbs and give myself a reward everytime I hit one.






My Program:
Exercising, going for long walks, gardening.

Cutting down on calories, eating more healthily.



Personal Information:
I'm from Yorkshire, England...we call it 'God's Own Country'.

I live in a small village in the country but am only a few miles from the sea so I have the best of both worlds.

I'm 65 years young.

My DH and I have been happily married for 43 years.

I'm a daughter, wife, mother, grandma, nana, niece, cousin, aunt and great aunt.




Other Information:
My hobbies are very varied, everything from puzzles to zentangles, reading to gardening, walking to birdwatching, writing to photography.
I love language too, the nuances and foibles, so I enjoy dabbling with writing and poetry...my son once called me a wordsmith...I wish I lived up to it!

My grandmother used to make all of my clothes and she made beautiful quilts and was always busy. I don't think we appreciated her for a long time. She was incredibly talented.
But I was so jealous of my friends with their store bought clothes.
Your dolls house sounds so fun.

Wasn't the Finch gorgeous? One of the prettiest I have ever seen. Spring has sprung. Swallowtails are out and about now.

Can't believe it has been so long since I have been here. Where do the days go???

My grandson Jordon and his wife, Melissa, are here visiting from San Diego. He is the one in the Navy,. I had not meet her when they were here a couple of years ago - so met them for lunch yesterday. And we had such a good visit. Was good to learn a bit about her. Monday will be their first wedding anniversary and they are going to Walla Walla to stay in a bread-and-breakfast for a couple of days,. Then they will return home on the 7th.

I have not done much - it has continued to be quite cold here so have not been out much. Am mostly just knitting, doing my Bilble studies, and occasionally a bit of housecleaning (don't what to overdo on that one!).

We are so looking forward to Spring - I just looked at the pictures you posted on flickr.com. Beautiful spring flowers. My tulips are just now peeking out from the soil - don't think i have anything else that will come up this year. I have a problem with neighborhood cats that use my flower bed as their litter box. Need to find something to keep them away!!

I see that you are visiting family today. Hope you have a good visit and do not get lost in the fog.

Love,
barb
