Thank God for Summer

I love the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Especially Summer. I love to garden and eat the vegetables when they are ready. You can never get the same taste from store bought ones. 

This year we have tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, and green beans. It is just the two of us so we have downsized the amount of plants we have. We have also clean up the yard of dead plants and bushes. I had peonies all along the privacy fence, but lost a lot of them over the winter. I am not sure why. I just put pots with patio tomatoes on the spot where the peonies once were. 

We are going to sell next year hopefully, and will not be adding anymore plants in the yard. 

I love my backyard, especially when the grass has been cut. You can find me on the back porch with a cup of coffee in hand. You are welcome to join me anytime.

Trying to get out of a Depression


Trying my best to get out of this horrible depression and I found this graphic on the internet. That is going to be my motto everyday now.

I really hate this virus that is changing our world.  Last year I was supposed to have both knee's replaced, but because I weighed too much the Doctor wanted me to lose at least 50 lbs. I was doing a great job until a few months ago and now gained all that I lost. My Doctor said he was canceling all surgeries until the virus got under control. That is went I started going back to my old habits of emotional eating.  There is really no excuse for what I did and now I have to start again. 

I fell like a complete idiot. I am in constant pain when I walk and should have known better.  Last week I stopped feeling sorry for myself and started a diet again and this time I will make it. A couple of weeks ago I turned 66 years old and took a long hard look at my life and did not like what I saw. I have good days and bad days now.  I know it will take time and I will get out of this depression.  If is was just for the weight I might have been able to handle it, but we have had more problems too and that is what pushed me over. 

We were suppose to finish some repairs to the house so we could sell it when David retires, but now everything is up in the air.  Like, when will this virus go away, will be survived it, will David keep his job of 28 years until he retires, can He retired next year. So many things go through my mind. 

I made a list of things to do to make myself get out of it and everyday I check one off and I am happy with that. I do plan on coming back to blogging and reading all my favorite blogs as soon as I can.
