The Rut







So good!


One hour earlier ....

I bolted from my comfy chair, turned off the TV, got dressed and decided
it was almost high noon and high time for me to get out of this,
 much deeper than the picture below, RUT!!! Eek.


It's time to get moving and shed some pre-Christmas and apres-Christmas overindulging!




It's a beautiful, crisp and sunny Winter's Day
and there cannot be any more excuses.
I've been inspired by a dear friend Anita who 
walks every day (earlier in the morning that this, I might add!)
and has been "defluffing" as my blog friend Ellen calls it,
with great success.
You can find Ellen's fun and inspirational posts at:
https://happywonderer.com.
Defluffing has to be a theme over here too.








I've missed this walk and this sunny day brings some lovely shots.


My treat at the end of this, almost 45 minute, walk down our country road
was a delicious spinach smoothie.
Why have I waited so long to do this?
Pray that I will continue to get on the road get out of the rut
to healthier days ahead.


Spinach, a splash of carrot juice, squeeze of lemon,
half avocado, banana, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries,
melon and a good dash of cinnamon!


My other rut is being so behind in blogging/journalling
and getting caught up with pictures and such.
A new month is just around the corner - a new chance to make some much needed changes?


Another great reason to stay healthy!!!
Can't believe we had this much snow just 18 days ago.


Till next time - taking "baby steps" down this road. Are you struggling with this?

To 66 with Love!


Turning 66 isn't so bad when you have this child on your lap!
The cheerful greeting of "Happy Birthday Nammie"
coming from the car as her mommy unbuckled her,
warmed me right down to my soul
on this extremely cold winter's day.

She has such a gentle and loving personality
with spontaneous hugs and warm kisses.
Much credit goes to her attentive and loving parents!
Our hearts are full and 
can't imagine life without this precious little human!

Thank you for the coffee and treats,
gifts and pizza supper ...
but mostly for your love!




We are in a "deep freeze" over here these days.
However, the sun shines bright, the wood stove makes the house feel extra cozy,
the Christmas decorations have been put away,
the days seem to be getting longer,
and a relaxing weekend awaits.




Till next time ...... another year older and many good things to look forward to in this new year.



Two Months

Two months ago we made a very big move ... from our beloved farm of 41 years to the lovely suburbs of beautiful Stratford, Ontario. A dream ...
