I'm 75. another years has gone by, so now I am 75,and I have decided that I am not going to focus on losing weight as much as I am going to improve my eating habits. I have asthma and am on oxygen at night and can't walk long distances, I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder and now have a frozen shoulder, so that shoulders makes it difficult to do a lot of kind of exercises, so I do what I can, and if I lose a couple pounds that is a bonus, not a requirement.

I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock, sheep, 8 miniatures horses, and goats and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.

I really don't have any big expectations, cause I am not one that likes setting goals. I just want to be as healthy as I can and enjoy life, and it doesn't mean spending hours and hours walking, running, working out in a smelly germ infested gym, I work hard on the farm and that has been the way it has been for many centuries, in my family, so I think it is good enough for me.
Honest work, and knowing I should not eat as much as I do, but it is all natural food, that means I don't eat boxed or store canned food unless it is unavoidable. If you read labels, some dogs and cats eat better than some do. If I can't pronounce it, I don't eat it.
So that said I have no goals, just honest living, and no beating myself up if I have a piece of pie.

    the readon we are binge watching is because Netflix lost the contract for Madmen, and a few others. It gets pulled in 4 days. I don’t really recommend it...

    Mickey is the third one. The person who fostered him as a kitten named him Mickey because of his black and white suit and big ears like the Mouse. That Shorty is quite a cat! He has you well trained.

    Very cool! One grandmother was a choir director, sang solos, and had a little chord organ that I loved to play by ear on our summer visits. The other grandmother played Sousa marches for our parades, polkas for dancing, and Victor Herbert operettas for fun. I still have some of her music though it’s about to fall apart. I didn’t grow up with classical, but it’s what I love most now.

    When I was teaching myself to play the recorder (a simple flute), the cat would knock it with his head so I couldn’t play. My mom and I spent lots of time laughing on her deck when I tried to teach her to play!
