    @JCFan3 Hi Angie,

    Love to rummage and repurpose items, love the ber months also( sweatshirt and jeans weather) enjoy music.

    I’m a great supporter of Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! Having to curb my rummaging, though as I’m trying to declutter my possessions, especially my big girls’ clothes.

    @TerriRichardson112 Your flower post is beautiful and tech creative. I can’t seem to always get my photos to upload right!

    Thought I’d share my recent favorite quote from Cicero: “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

    Have a good day everyone!

    Hello new and returning friends!
    It’s so great to see all of the positivity here.
    It’s 55 and lightly drizzling today... Pretty much like yesterday...but absolutely beautiful. The red barn pic is from my drive to work... the trees haven’t started changing colors, but soon they will. My squirrel friend was at work with me.

    Love the barn! What animals do they have?

    That is a great question! I’ve never seen any animals there... and their house is across the street to the right. Hmmm...🧐

    I spent a semester in the Netherlands in college, starting in January, and I remember everyone came out as soon as spring came, so many boats on the canals and people lounging in the parks! Ahh I miss it and riding my bicycle.

    What a great idea! It's so good to have some positivity!
    My name is Trista and I'm 40 years old. My husband and I have been married for 13 years and we have an 11 year old son that is starting 6th grade today!
    I've been working on losing weight since May 2016. Over the years, I've taken a few breaks here and there. Gained some, then got back to losing. I'm currently working on losing the Coronavirus 15. I'm glad I came across this thread!

    My husband found this hummingbird unconscious under the tractor and brought it to the house. I gave it some sugar water with a syringe and it came to and I then let him back outside. It was really cool because my niece passed away from leukaemia 9 years ago and hummingbirds have since always been around us- my sister and I are convinced it is my niece visiting us. I will miss them as they are heading south now- they definitely brighten my day.

    That’s so beautiful! 🥰

    We’re glad to have you, Trista! I hope your son had a good first day of school.

    The journey to health and fitness is a lifetime commitment to replacing unhelpful habits, one by one, step by step. Each one of us Is travelling by a different road towards the same destination.

    Terri & Diana—Awesome inspiring words for today! Taking a long walk this morning with the dog and a good friend...socially distanced of course.

    Do something fun for yourself today. Later I’m trimming my hair and dying it. I should post a before and after. 😂

    I had a bad night- I think it is a little of everything right now. Social isolation, full fledged menopause, minor medical issues, the stress of selling our calves this week.
    Saw your post @TerriRichardson112 and it reminded me to start today with force! Thank you :)

    @sweetdianachka Like your Amazon post! I need to share it with a friend who doesn’t want to start losing weight because it will take too long!

    I drew a plan for new storage in my hobbies room. At the moment too much is stored in boxes on the floor.
