Life Marches On

Who would have thought loosing 25 lbs would make such a difference? I’m not sure where I’m loosing, but things are rearranging. ALL my clothes are baggy. I threw out 3 black garbage bags of stuff that is way big. Sex is great. My back is much better. I’m walking around the lake with hubby and the dog, without pain. Life is improving.

Positives abound. Lots of food. Help with the kitties. Still no job but I’m really thinking I’m gonna have to figure out how to live without one. It’s not the gray hair or the weight. It’s just the economy. So the trays are gathered for starting this year’s seeds. I think I can sell herbs and baby plants at the farmer’s market. I need to get my Etsy store running too. Jewelry, socks, baby items, quilted items…not too focused yet, but it’s coming together.

Stayed in bed with hubby this am so skipped breakfast, but lunch was fresh pineapple, walnuts, cottage cheese, coffee and WATER. I’m cooking green beans, pork roast, orange sections and seasoned wild rice for dinner. Gotta attack the day with a plan.

Gonna light a candle, turn on some music, and DANCE! (while I wash the dishes!)


About Morning Knits

I believe in and practice positive living. I love YARN, music, bird watching, history, gemstones, and gardening. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its bounds. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a Kingdom focused non denominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and and a rescued kitten. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative discs, fibromyalgia, and obesity. That last is hard to say. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow go.
