It is about five minutes from my house.
I went this morning.
This is a way for me to work on landscape photos,
get morning exercise,
be inspired for my gardens and
see new to me butterflies and birds.
If every morning, after I dress and feed the birds,
I take myself out into the wild areas that are around me
I think I will come home energized and inspired.
I need to get up and get moving.
I watched Orange Sulphurs, Goldfinches, Dragonflies and Damselflies.
I watched a Black Swallowtail in the Purple Bergamot.
I looked about.
I was gone an hour.
As I looked at the wild gardens I was encouraged.
My gardens are a blend of wild and cultivated.
I think they are pretty.
I am doing a reality check today.
I weighed this morning.
I had not done that for six months.
I brought out my body journal.
Once again I committed to my slim and trim body.
I made a list of all the things I like about me.
I made a list of what I like to do.
I made realistic goals.
I made a plan of action.
I like to take pictures.
I like birds and bugs and blooms.
I like to walk.
I can walk in the morning with my camera.
I can take my photos and get exercise.
I can still walk in the evenings with my husband.
I can still take pictures in my own backyard.
I can do everything I like to do.
I can be slim and trim again regardless of hormones!
I will eat my banana instead of my Dove Miniature.
