Life is Good!



After lunch I want nothing more than a nap, but that doctor's advice ~ walk 10 - 15 minutes after each meal and your bloodsugars will improve significantly ~ rings in my brain. So I get up, take my camera, walk up to the barn and around it twice, then back down to the garden. That takes about 8 minutes. A good start ~ a foundation to build on. 


Then I sit above our garden, under the juniper tree. Our garden got a very late start, but it's growing like crazy. Last night, deer trampled in it and the gopher is moving closer and closer. Suddenly, the entire tree above me is full of little tiny birds. They look like regular sparrows, but are about half the size. I have to check my book as I have never seen them before. Peace overtakes me and I begin to nod off to the twitter of the birds. 


Life is good!

  2. We have some of those little sparrowlike birds, too. Only a little larger than a hummingbird. Please let us know when you find out what they are.

  3. Seems the older we get we have to fight to stay strong. That can be accomplished by some form of exercise that works for you. We bought a treadmill in May and I quit the gym as I have a pretty good set-up in my basement now for working out. I chart my progress just like I did at the gym or I will slack off!! Maybe try charting your walks. The climate here is not good for walking in the winter you live in a better climate for year round walks. I find my time flies on the treadmill if I'm reading my Kindle Fire.

  5. Yes, yes, life is definitely good.

    You may have inspired me to try taking a short walk after each meal. Ten minutes sounds doable, and a walk always makes me feel so good.

  6. Are your birds little finches? We have a lot of them. They have a subtle color. If not, I hope you'll get a picture of them sometime. Your walks sound wonderful for the soul, as well as the body! :-)

  14. Could they be bushtits? Hubs, the birder suggested that.

    We have seen old decrepit trucks placed in fences, to patch a break. I guess that's recycling, but I'd rather see that metal recycled instead of turning into rust dust.

  20. Hi Inger .. looks good too - just so relaxed in Desert Canyon ..

    Great that you are walking 'round your barn' and starting your metabolism going - makes sense.

    Just gorgeous to think about .. cheers Hilary

  21. I'm glad life is good! The sound of birds tweeting is one of my favourite parts of being outdoors. They are bit annoying whilst trying to sleep but otherwise I'm more than happy to listen to them talking!
