Next month we will have been an AZ for 3 years. I am still trying to become a successful gardener. Desert gardening is a 180 degree turn from the lush landscape and plants I have been familiar with. I have been guilty of planticide in trying to landscape my yard and garden.
We live at the base of Catalina mountains and I love looking at them in the different light and shadows during the day.
There are many species of animals that we see in our yard. Gamble quail, white wing doves, humming birds, rabbits, lizards, coyotes, the neighborhood bobcat, and rattlers.
We have had many challenges since we moved. Health, pool issues, house issues, money issues, deaths of family members
just to list a few broad categories. I believe better times are still ahead.
This was my post in 2016 I am updating my page as we moved from upstate NY to Tucson AZ. I am still unpacking and have yet to start back up finding a fitness center or exploring the facilities were we are renting. I will miss my team mates and friends in NYState. The information that follows was where I was and the wonderful support group that I left. I am competing as a team member with a great group of women. Our program is called Dare to Lose! There are some similarities to the biggest loser. We meet twice a week for 1 1/2 hours with our trainers, have challenges and weigh ins and are responsible for watching our food intake and exercising at least 2 more times a week. Each session is 8 weeks long so there is a mix of newcomers and those who have participated in earlier sessions. There is a lot of positive support from both the participants, trainers and other fitness center members. We are working hard at getting fit and losing weight.

    Yes, the wind here was bad today, but Duke spent most of the day out under a tree, right in the breeze, when he could have come up to the patio where it is protected and out of the wind, but it's his choose to be right out in it. Finn now he comes in in the morning, and then wants out, as there just might be a girlfriend out there.and he doesn't want to miss them. lol

    We are on our 3rd week, wishing you a successful week and success doing the WEC:

    “Don't Just

    Don't just learn, experience.
    Don't just read, absorb.
    Don't just change, transform.
    Don't just relate, advocate.
    Don't just promise, prove.
    Don't just criticize, encourage.
    Don't just think, ponder.
    Don't just take, give.
    Don't just see, feel.
    Don’t just dream, do.
    Don't just hear, listen.
    Don't just talk, act.
    Don't just tell, show.
    Don't just exist, live.”
