for afternoon. But it seems that several hours ago huge snow flakes began falling.
My birds in a frenzy as they empty the feeders, so I am bundling up and going outside
to make sure they have
seeds for the next few days of frigid weather arriving.
Morning breakfast a little different over the last several months as I begin first thing this morning drinking a juice glass of Kefir. It is really tasty and a probiotic.
Started with this and about 30 minutes later chopped apple, banana, apricot, raisins covered with
yogurt and flax seeds and my almost morning ritual of 3 cups of green tea.
I rotate to fruit with oates and then fruit with scrambled egg and slice of bacon.
Trying very hard to eat properly with most mornings of yoga and try to go at a slower pace.
It has become very apparent
that I can no longer walk miles a day, vist my woods often, garden nonstop for hours, wash car and truck
and many other things that have always been done by this one. Really have not given up much
but doing less of most and at a slower pace.
In all truth - I never thought these would have to be given up - how unrealistic this one is.
I like my new doctor and I smiled as she made the comment to me "you are very determined
and you need to accept what is happening at this time of life and go at a slower pace."
the thought came to mind that I am a new patient and she seemed to describe
So as I share with my family and friends far and near
trying to change and enjoy some more quality years as this aging process that I do not like
Plan on writing less as it seems my mind is almost empty at the moment, want to be on the
computer less as it sure is addictive and hours can fly by without you hardly even knowing it.
I promise not to just disappear like some I have become attached to have done.
But do not want my sharing to focuse on health and aging.
Trying to be still more, think less, meditate more and continue to realize
that with all the ups and downs of my driven lifestyles that if I could have
much would have been changed but I did all that was in my power with the
knowledge that I possessed at that time of life.
What is apparent at this moment is I have wonderful
children, grandchildren and I have so many blessings and need to focus on this.
Guess the best one at the moment is I am reasonably healthy, of sound mind and was
allowed to return to an area that in my heart I could never entirely leave and was allowed to build this small home surrounded by nature....
Also new neighbors from a farm in Kentucky have moved into home on adjoining property.
This home was one I built after selling the old farm house. In a few years I sold it
thinking I would not return to the country. It was sold to a lady who is a retired professor and
she has returned
to her home place in Rhode Island.
Looking out the window New Years Eve
I spotted 6 horses and a donkey :) part of my new neighbors family. Also some cats
and dogs met me as I approached the front door to introduce myself and give them my
phone number in case I could help them in any way....
This will thrill my young granddaughter's when they visit.
Enough shared on this cold and snowy morning
where plans for the day continue to change/
Also as plans are underway for my first granddaughter's Spring wedding
I smile and my heart is warmed....
