I have been fighting to get back on the wagon for some time now. Been beating myself up for my lack of control and not keeping my eye on the prize which is better health and feeling better about myself. But my BFF Kim once again has been there for me and with her wise advice I am feeling better today about climbing back up on that wagon. Thank you Kim; you are always there for me and it means so much!
I've been guilty of being a Spark-lurker, snooping around but not tracking or reading or participating like I know I need to. This behavior stops today! So many on here have had great success; I know that can be me one day!
On a lighter note; we have finished our house siding / remodel / landscaping project; here is a before and after! Now I need to update me to match my new pretty house!
Tonight I am going to see The Oakridge Boys at our little renovated theater just 10 miles from home with my husband, sister and brother in law. I'm not a big country fan but I do like select groups but I know these guys will be great; I'm ready for a fun time! And we got 3rd row seats!
We are so blessed to have this little theater so close and I'm always so surprised at the big names they book there; it is one of the best things to come to our little area. I LOVE music, along with my little dog, it helped me survive my teen years. It takes away all the cares of the world and lets you just....be.. I love that the last quarter of the show they take down the rope and let us rush to the stage; I might feel a little silly doing that at my age but it doesn't stop me; I can't help myself! It's too darn fun being bumped around by the other crazies all trying to get up close and personal and maybe get a handshake. I even got my husband going up with me..lol...now that is funny!! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Boy am I beat but glad I got in plenty of exercise! Despite it raining here, er...I should say pouring buckets the hubs and I got outside and started landscaping the bank in our front yard. A project we started 2 summers ago! Here are some pics of a work in progress; it's coming along nicely, can't wait to add the bark and rocks to finish it up!
Love the little Cedar tree on the corner...it will stay narrow and get tall, I love it!
Now some after shots!
Still need to work on the side by the house. In the front is the pretty little white crab apple we added to the bank:
Once we finish the side and add bark we'll be done, well almost...we need to add a wood fence to the side to block out the neighbors vehicles; that will be the finishing touch!
Hard work but fun and should last a long time and get better as the plants grow and flourish! Hope you are having a great day!
