    Today, I woke up early and resisted temptation to go out to breakfast with the DH. Instead I made French toast, bacon and eggs. Then we went to the reservoir and walked. There were a lot more ducks and quite a few cranes and loons earlier in the morning. The sunrise was beautiful. I planted a Banana tree in the front.I also planted some flowers, orange yellow and a lavender bush along with a blueberry bush and I separated an aloe plant. I organized coupons. Now I am finishing up laundry and planning ...

    I am still not organized but am getting there. We are expecting some big storms coming in next week. So I really need to get things done this weekend in preparation. I have 2 more pineapple plants that hopefully I can get started.My one from last year is doing well, but that could have been just luck. I picked up a bunch of meat markdown and salads last night.

    So far I have been very good about the exercise challenge. I have walked with the DH at Puddingstone Reservoir close to our house. It is beautiful over there so the time passes quickly. I did my three times last week and already one time for this week. I have been taking my vitamins regularly. I have only ate out once with some people at the office (we went to Happy Hour and I spent $10 including the tip. Someone picked up my drink tab. I did get a free dollar coupon at the Target Cafe so will ...

    Today is a shopping and organizing day. I still have a few returns and will check the last of the clearance sales. I will also be paying property taxes. I will be working on my goals for reading. I am doing the challenge of the Bible in one year and I will read Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levine. I guess they had a snow storm in Ohio and am thankful for living in Southern CA at this time. I am hoping to get some work done outside and do some planting.I attended a really good seminar this week on ...
