Very busy outside this week

So much needing to do outside in the yard I don't have time for logging on to SP this week. We put a new fence up around our yard this weekend and today we start to paint it. It is dandelion season and I also have been working at digging them up as fast as they grow so my yard has fewer. The yard is looking great again and it feels so good to be caring for it once again now that I am feeling better. I still have to watch I don't over do it but my husband lets me know when I need to stop and take a break. My weight has been bouncing back the same couple of lbs. for two month and I think maybe this is a comfortable weight to remain at since I am feeling healthy and stronger now and eating the right amounts and kinds of foods to maintain this healthy weight that I am at. I still hear my mothers voice in my ear "You don't want to lose too much weight and then look sickly"! She thinks I look good just as I am and that's means a lot to me that she is being positive about my appearance and health. She was never over weight at any time in her whole life and would always tell everyone " I always kept busy and at good home cooked plain healthy foods and never had to worry about my weight ever". So now I am finally eating only good healthy plain foods and keeping active every day and I hope never to gain those unwanted lbs. ever again. Well no rest for the wicked as they say and my husband has finished his lunch and is roaming around the place getting the materials all gathered up for starting on painting the fence.

    That's something I need to do more of this summer, if I can get up and out before it gets too hot. I can't handle the heat still, so have to be careful. Have fun painting and seeing the beauty of your yard enhanced by the effort. emoticon

    I know all about those dandelions, they just do not know when to stop, My parents always looked forward to Spring, and dandelion time, because they would go out and pick lots of them, and make dandelions greens, kind of strong if I remember right, but supposed to help clean us out after the winter. anyway, they liked them, me, not so much, but I did have to eat a bit of them

    We had our youngest Grandson paint a raw block wall, and 1 cos6t just isn't enough, so I got more paint and want to try it myself, not sure I am still up to it, but I think if I take my time, it should be fine, and I do know how to take my time any more emoticon
