First, I want to say how blessed I am to have so many of you comment and give me encouragement. That is truly one of the reasons I like blogging so much—the friends you can make along the way! You all have been wonderful.
I also like that fact that we have such a great relationship here-- I can say, I’m not alone. I think we probably all know someone with Diabetes.(or some other life altering disease) I can also comfortably say to all of you—I’m not looking for sympathy. The other great thing about our blogging relationship… YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN SYMPATHY; and THAT is appreciated. I get genuine heart felt comments from all my readers – and I am glad to have the accountability. So Thank you!

Right now the rain has been on again off again… about 1/2 of the last month! THAT MEANS MOSQUITOES! Hords and Hords of Mosquitoes! So… today, I ran to the chicken coop, let the chickens out and RAN BACK TO THE HOUSE AS FAST AS I COULD! (while breathing through my nose!… I heard mosquitoes are drawn to “mouth breathers” ) I out ran most of them. Let’s not forget the upper body work out I got while trying to swat most of them off me, either. That counts right?
I ran out to the garden and turned on the soaker hose—which was a total waste. Because, THE BOTTOM FELL OUT in the afternoon; and it poured rain off and on for about an hour. I was so glad I got the garden watered before the rain came!
Some suggested walking, I will tell you—as soon as it gets HOT enough …because, well, right now we’ve only hovered around 91° - 93° with rain and humidity! But as soon as it DOES GET HOT —and dries up all the puddles (The Lord knows I’ve dumped out every bit of standing water I can) … I will go for a walk down our country lane. I will walk and get my heart rate up. I will walk, walk, walk.
Or… I’ll wait until December. When the weather is just perfect for walking Mosquito-Free!
The other bit of exercise I’ve been getting is swimming. Yes! we have an
So—that’s it for now on the exercise portion of “my life now”. I will be using a tread mill in the near future. I DON’T DO GYMS. But, a tread mill will be making it’s way here and I’ll figure out how to ride that thing!
You all know I’m not a sedentary person. Deliberate exercise, not so much. But that’s all changing.
Me, RUNNING… that’s a good one! I just laugh thinking about that!
Til next time, Be Blessed!
The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. ~Psalm 28:7
