Looking forward to enjoying pansies again this Spring!
Just do it!
Committed to doing the 2016 Spring 5% Challenge!
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.
I love the 5% Challenges and am focused on the 2016 Spring 5% Challenge. I'd best make it a super successful one with 2 of my boys getting married in Oct. 2016 (yes, no typo!)

Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 3 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a part-time bookkeeping business going; watch 4 yr old granddaughter 2 afternoons weekly.
Enjoy time with family and friends, reading, gardening (novice), cooking & mini vacations. Recently got interested in watercolor after taking a class. I am addicted to online jigsaw puzzles!

Do you need to wait to feel hungry before eating? Worst Diet Advice: 'Only Eat When Hungry'
Why you shouldn’t let hunger drive your dietary decisions . Don't believe it? What happens when you go to the supermarket hungry? Well you shop differently, of course, coming home with items you'd have never purchased on a full stomach. And what happens when you sit down to a meal hungry? Well you're still shopping of course, only this time you're shopping from your plate, your fridge, your cupboards, your freezer, or worst of all, from a menu.

Glad you stopped by my friend. I just got in from trimming the roses, really are pretty, can't wait for more blooms. Those Iris's were so pretty, they do like a sunny spot. The blue flower was a wild Canterbury bells, I sure would love to have those in my yard. Saw those on a recent hike.
I would sure love to see the pictures of the flowers you took too. Pretty please.
Hope your day went well, Really good to hear you walking in the mornings again. Nice to get out and enjoy your beautiful weather. Have a nice evening Vicki.

Morning my friend. Happy you are having a sunny day, send some back to California, seem to be missing mine lately. It is just peeking out right now, lol. Really happy you are having sunny days , happy it is getting you moving on to a great start to a new chapter. Hope you had a nice walk. I went out and came back in waiting for Glen and Riley and go out later in the sunshine.
Glad your DS2 found a sunny spot for those tomatoes, nothing better that home grown tomatoes. I have to buy new plants and put them in a new location out front, had a bit of a problem. Think I can buy bigger plants at the nursery, missing my tomatoes right now.
Nice of you to take MIL out to the play, sounds like it did a world of good for the both of you. So true always need to make the most of the time we have. You are a sweetheart.
Have a beautiful Sunday Vicki, happy you stopped by, perked me up.
