I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I'm now a Master Gardener, and live on a wooded two acre property, with loads of places for improvement. Trying to get better at planning: my meals, my garden, and my time.

Member Since: 3/24/2010

My Goals:
To feel fit and healthy, and physically vital.

Eating less desserts and more real food; eliminating processed foods.

Personal Information:
Born during WWII in a "Maternal Nursing Home" (an adjunct to the local hospital) in North Platte Nebraska, lived in several big cities ever since: San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. Moved from Dallas to Missouri in summer of 2014. Love growing herbs, singing, quilting, and crazy quilting. Grandmother of seven. Trying to increase my dependence on God, and to quit thinking I have all the answers.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader. I read every day, and am currently also reading the Bible every morning, with a schedule to finish it in one year. This is the sixth or seventh time I've read on this schedule, and learn new things every time. It helps center me for the day's activities.

    The best thing you could do is master the chaos in you. You are not thrown into the fire, you ARE the fire. Mama Indigo

    I got a message that you joined the Fasting for Fat Loss team. I sure hope I see you on the June chat thread soon! Not a lot of action. (People keep going to Facebook.) But Spark needs a fasting presence.

    I swiped the tea towel metaphor from KASEYCOFF, who lives in the UK. It's just kind of a "taking attendance" status!

    Hi, thanks for commenting on my Ava new kitten blog. My husband was the one who pushed for the kitten. He felt a lack since we lost our 13-year old kitty back in December. Maybe your husband will change his mind, eventually.
