I'm still kicking

I haven't had much to write about so I haven't been writing. I have spent most of my days the last two weeks reading and enjoying the fact that I don't have to go to work. But two weeks is enough time to sit around and do basically nothing. I started walking again a couple of days ago and am trying to get my diet under control as well. I would like to loose the weight I gained over the winter and possibly some extra. That means walking every day and a major change in my diet. I smoked my last cigarette a month ago and since then have done nothing but eat. Basically substituted one bad habit for another. Trying to get that under control now.

I have a new tree for the yard. One of my neighbors gave me this palm tree. I haven't decided where to put it so I potted it up and will move it around until I find a spot for it.

When I find the spot I will have to put in an addition to the irrigation. That won't be too difficult now that I know where all the lines are since I put them in myself. 

I have several projects that need completing. The trailer still needs work and the golf cart needs attention as well. I still want to do the grow bench watering system and I ordered a stock tank for the patio so I will have a cool tub as opposed to a hot tub. Will need to create a screen or curtain to put that behind and will have to do some rearranging. 

I want to try watercolor painting and metal clay this summer. At some point I need to fire up the kiln I bought last year. I had the electricity installed in the shed for that and haven't used it yet. Lots of things I can do to keep myself busy during the summer. Time to start doing some of them.


  1. Glad to hear you are ok... I miss your posts :)

    1. I haven't had a whole lot to write about. Hopefully that will be changing. :)
