New Years Resolution in progress

Well, every new year we all seem to make resolutions that we start out strong with and then they manage to fade out. I made a different one this year that I believe will be simple to do. Every morning I walk into my closet to decide what to wear, I always grab the same stuff! I have years of clothes accumulated in my closet, but I ALWAYS manage to reach for those same pants, top, etc. that I have been wearing for days! I decided to push myself to change this! Every day NOW I will pick out something different! My hubby is going to help me with this. He said he would tell me if he notices I am going back to my old habit. ( He also knows if he says the wrong thing, I will explode! LOL)
So far this year, I have been right on track. I will make it a habit to post some of my photos more often. They SHOULD show me in different clothes!

Just wondering, what is your resolution for 2017?

I have been really busy writing away as a Master Editor for my friends at Everipedia.com. Have you created your page yet? What are you waiting for? Come on over! If you want a page, just ask! ๐Ÿ™‚

NO MORE PEP TALKS FOLKS 10/8/15

Well, I decided that I do not like doing a pep talk everyday because I think I need to do it. I just want to give a pep talk when I feel like giving a pep talk. I am not a coach, but I guess it is kind of the same thing. When I feel like I am getting a sign to post a pep talk, I will. Meanwhile, I will just keep being me and doing whatever sounds good or looks good. I hope you all have plans for a fun weekend. I need a break, so I am going with my hubby to Dana Point for the weekend. I have heard many nice things about it. I plan on just relaxing and doing what ever I feel like doing. Sounds good to me right now. So, I will be seeing you all in a few days. Stay healthy and have fun.

The truth is….

The truth is that nobody really knows what the heck the truth is. We listen to one story and then we figure it sounds pretty good, so it must be the truth. Then someone else comes along and has to screw things up by saying some things that made more sense than what the other person just said. I mean “Really!” I do not need more confusion in my life right now. I just want to get up in the morning, get my coffee, look at my schedule for the day, and move ahead. I am sure I will be watching the clock all day long just waiting for that moment when I can just go home, take a deep breath, and go put my “fat clothes” on! No more sticking in my stomach. No more smiling pretty. No more wondering how my hair looks. You know, just hanging out! I did I mention that5 exciting moment when us girls get to finally take off that annoying bra! Wow, the best! You girls out there understand! So, I guess what I am trying to say is that we just have to take the day for what it is and figure out from many directions presented to us, which way to go with our actions. I guess today is my day to just ramble on. Oh well, thanks for listening. Have a great weekend!

Well, you have to believe me when I say that is actually me out there you see in the water. What am I doing? Well, my second son bought a KAYAK, with all of the gear. He insisted that I try it out! I could not leave until I did! I have to admit, I was a bit on the hesitant side. I would have rather had on my bathing suit instead of my new clothes I just got! I could see that my son REALLY wanted to see what would happen, so I did it! I am now hooked. I adjusted quickly to the balance issue. I got accustomed to getting wet! I sat in a puddle of water the whole time, put my pants finally dried! Once I got into the groove of kayaking, I did not want to stop! So, I guess I did learn that YOU CAN teach an old dog new tricks! lol Have fun!

A Day in Ventura at the beach……..

<

Like my new shades? Looking good or should I trade them in? lol I had a relaxing day at the beach in Ventura. I walked up and down Main Street. Lots of shops ranging from thrift stores, antiques, and crazy gadgets. There sure were a lot of surfers out! I love watching them hit the waves. I got to eat at a delicious Irish Pub. The atmosphere was very friendly and inviting.I also took a look at the Ventura Mission. There you can find some samples of the way of life back in the day. I loved it!I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time in Ventura this summer. I also love going to their RV parks. I guess I had better get in shape! I have starting walking every day now for a minimum of 20-30 minutes. I also do some yoga and light weights. I do not belong to a gym. I find it more relaxing to do it in the comfort of my home. Hope you are all planning on having a nice week. I need you all to send some prayers out to my mom. She is having a heart angiogram on Tuesday. Thank you for your support.

Just thinking about things…..

What did you do this week that made you happier than last week?

Any special plans for the weekend?

I am very happy that my moms surgery for cataracts is all done and it went well. She can see distance now without glasses! She needs to get fit next week for reading glasses only! I am still waiting to get my new reading glasses. I hear they will be ready on Monday. Can’t wait to show ya.

My hubby and younger son will be going to theย  LA car show this weekend. My younger son wants to sell his truck and buy a more comfortable car. I really have no desire to go look at cars. I guess I will stay home and catch up on reading. My older son will be home. Maybe I can get him to take me to lunch. lol

I know a lot of you have been having health issues. Hope you are recovering and will be back to blogging soon. I am starting to get party invitations for Christmas and Hanukkah. I realized that I need to burn off some of this body fat so I can look “cool” in my outfit. Speaking of outfits, of course I have nothing to wear! A reason to go shopping, right? I will try to remember to show you all what I got. Your feedback is important to me. I gotta look cool! lol

Well, hope to stop in on you soon. Until then, stay well and happy!

Madison Rising – The Star Spangled Banner …VIDEO*

This has got to be one of the coolest rock bands around. I hope you all appreciate this song as much as I do.No matter where you are from, FREEDOM is a peaceful feeling to be able to have. May you all find love and peace this Thanksgiving week.

Find the time.

Find the moment.

Discover the good.

Ignore the ugly.

Hug one another.

Laugh instead of crying.

Smile instead of frowning.

Value the memories made.

Hold them deep in your heart.

No one can take them away.
