Spring???? I don't think so!

Don't worry, I am still here.  Yes, I know it has been too long since I have written and I really have no excuse other than the fact that winter is lasting far too long and I am so anxious for spring.  And Mother Nature is playing tricks with the weather!  We had a few days of warm sunshine and higher temps only to be accosted by more snowy days again and again.  My front lawn is still completely covered in snow and I am soooo over it.  Being encouraged by that little spat of warm days, I bought some new seeds for my garden this year.  I really want to extend the garden and have some ideas about some new areas as well.  The seeds are a rather unique radish that is called watermelon radish as it is white on the outside and bright red on the inside and some lovely green peas.  I can't wait to get out there to get my gardens started and I am envisioning where I will plant everything.  I have a rectangular shaped plot on the south side of the garage that gets sun all day and so have always planted tomatoes there.  I would like to enlarge that area but I still need to keep it to the plants that like the all day sun.  I would also like to create a plot under our bedroom window which will have some shade from the tree growing there but will still have lots of sun as well in the afternoon.  Not sure what to put there.  I also want to create a sunflower "wall" with some lattice that could also support some morning glories.  I just have to wait until I can actually put some of these ideas in action.  Hopefully, soon! 
So here is the bad news: I went to the doc's today and discovered that I have gained 5 lbs.  WHAT?????  Yep, it is true and I am not happy about it.   Not sure what my strategy will be to counteract this but I am defo considering vegetarianism (at least for lunches).  I can't wait to get out to work on my garden and I am sure that this will be an esteem boost whenever the snow is gone.  I know that I must be smart enough to get past this hurdle and move forward.  Thankfully, PJ is so supportive and has suggested some ideas to get past this.  Don't know what I would do without my fam to support me in everything I do.  Even when I am not so successful, I can still rely on PJ and Coco to encourage and boost me through the bad times.  Tee is not so involved but he is still my cheerleader when I am down.  
Now I need to buck up and do the right thing.  Stop fooling around and get to it!
God bless those who stick with me.  I appreciate your being there.
Stay tuned!

  1. why is it so easy to gain weight, you never notice it half the time and then 10x more difficult to lose it?!

    1. I honestly don't know where it came from, but I am more determined now. Thanks for the comment. L xx
