Happy New Year!!!


As I said in previous blog, I am coming back with a different approach to this blog. I am going to keep it lean. I think I bit off more then I could chew and even though it was fun I could not keep up with it like I wanted to. I am going to keep certain aspects but others I am doing away with just because I cannot maintain them as well and it would be a disservice to you as my readers. I am keeping my “A Quote a Day”, “Adventures”, “Health and Exercise”, “Hobbies”, “My Opinion (and that is all it is)”, “Poetry”. “Reblogged Posts”, “Recipes”, “Some Good Links”. Anything else that was here I am trimming out. I may do some other trimming later in the year. We will just have to wait and see.

I will start my fitness posts again once a week but this time I am going to hold myself accountable more then I did last year. And whereas I do have a specific goal, I think I failed myself in having to lofty of a goal all at once. I am still keeping that 150 pounds in mind but I am taking smaller steps just because I burned out with my exercise. I still exercised but I started hating it and it became harder. Not to say it was ever easy, it just lost it’s shine so to speak. I am going to post a pic of my Fitbit page each week to show you all my progress. I can’t fib that…lol.

My quote a day will start tomorrow and like last time, it will be everyday. I think that was one of my most popular categories and I hope you will all continue to enjoy it.

My recipe category I will do a post once a week. I will do my best to find some interesting recipes as well as use some from my own culture.  We all love to eat so hopefully I can find at least some everyone will enjoy.

The rest of my categories on my blog will be attended too as well when inspiration strikes. 🙂

I hope none of you left during my hiatus but if you did I hope you find me again. I hope I can keep your interest in the few things I do.

I wish you all a productive amazing New Year and all you hopes and wishes come true!!


Update post…missed you all


Hi all!! Sorry I have not been blogging of late. I have not been the best blogger around 😦  I have not been too good health wise and then everything else. It’d been a long few days and hopefully we all got over the hump.

My health went from having allergy issues to having a full blown cold (which I am getting over). It was awful between the sneezing and dizziness I don’t know which was worse…ugh!! Then on top of that my sciatic nerve decided it wanted to act up. And as anyone who has a sciatic nerve issue knows how painful that is. Every time I moved the pain would go all the way up my back to the tips of my toes. :O

Well on to better things, looks like we are able to get a new roof on the house. Finally the insurance agreed and we will be getting a new one installed in the next week or so. I am so glad for that. It was about time. The last storm we had I guess was the last straw for the insurance and they agreed. YAY!!

My kids are basically finished for the school year and we are planning for the following year. My daughter is going to be in the 7th grade and my son is starting High School next year.  OMG!!!  It’s hard to imagine when I look at my kids to believe how tiny they were. Now they are almost adults. My daughter is discovering what she truly is capable of. I love to watch her do her work because she still has that “little girl” surprise about things when she discovers new things. But she tries so hard to act like an “adult”…lol!!!  My son is so ready to get into the 9th grade. He is going to start on the Honor’s Courses this year and will continue through High School. He is so determined to be the best but he still “needs” mama even though it might be a little grudgingly…lol!!

Well looks like I’m back in the blogsphere…my regular posts will start tomorrow. I hope I still have you all around. Have a great day everyone!!!

Wow …I am told today is my 1 yr anniversary!!


It funny you forget about time when you are having fun 🙂  I had completely forgot that it has actually been a year since I started writing this. I have expanded a few things and have tried to keep it running.  It’s easy to forget sometimes when you get busy with life. But it looks like I made it to the first year…yay me!!!

For everyone who has followed me in the last year I appreciate it more than you will ever know. You are the ones that keep me coming back. You are the ones that listen….thank you!!

Here’s to another year of blogging!!
