August 2020:

What a year 2020 is turning out to be! As I continue to work through the grief from the loss of my husband almost 4 years ago I draw upon a great sense of curiosity about the world around me and also a sense of responsibility towards the welfare of both my family and close friends but also that of the broader community. "Being in the present" is an emotion that I have chosen to embrace and discovering strengths I didn't know I had is very exciting!

And so I have sold the dream home that my DH and I built, left my dearly loved gardens and rural community and have bought and moved into a condo in the seaside community of Eastern Passage. I have a small garden space I am itching to develop ASAP, access to opportunities for outdoor exercise, volunteerism and a choice of nearby universities and libraries for learning. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

    Wow! Congratulations on your weight loss goals. You are where I'd love to be. I'm finding the last few pounds hard to lose which is why I'm searching for articles that may help me. I think working out in the morning is a good idea. If only I have the time!

    Walking a dog sounds like the perfect way to start your day! awesome. Have a fantastic day!

    Hugs, Helen x

    thanks for the welcome. I love gardening too i grew up on a farm and its lots of fun. I don`t have any flower beds were i live cus i'm living with my in laws at the moment. But we have a lot on a trailer park and i have few flower beds up there. When we first bought it my fiancé bought me two rose bushes to plant there... it was really nice of him and i love them they have so many blooms on them. If u ever want to just chat about flowers and gardening that would be great or just to chat is good too :)
