I Got Nothing Really To Post About !

 

          So here goes the babble  the thoughts out loud  … oh that’s not going to be good lol

Blogger block or not much going on , either one  it is pretty quiet here now . The weekend was sunny with chilly winds and Papa and I didn’t do much as everything has been done  for our yard clean up , well except for the thousands of leaves again on the lawn we were out cleaning them up on Sunday . I have been in a frump I guess you could call it , not much to photograph that I haven’t already and not feeling 100% either , I think I am dreading the colder weather can sense it creeping in  and am slowly going into hibernation mode all though I do go outside from time to time walk Miggs and to take photos in the really cold weather   yes ok I will say it WINTER !!  Yikes !!!!  I am a thinker and do a lot of that through out my days and at night to lol  . I was thinking HMM !  what do my blogger friends prefer , butter or margarine , skim milk , 1%milk , 2%milk or other types of milk or no milk at all . I am in a dilemma I am tired of man made processed foods and got tied up in the trap of all the no fat low fat yada yada is good for you .  Then realized that back in the day where there were no processed foods we all did well and were healthier for it  so I am trying to go back to that way I was raised , it is hard and as I have a slow metabolism I fear I will gain even more weight by changing yet again  what I eat  and yet I don't eat a lot  of anything  as I have tummy troubles IBS  , I cant stand fast food chains so never eat at them not a junk food eater all though the odd chocolate bar is a treat every once in a while ,  unlike Papa who can eat anything and everything, I am soo confused by it all !!!!!

OCTOBER 2014 (13 of 13)

I walk every morning with my Miggs and sometimes we go for a good long walk for an hour and half up and down the hills of our valley roads  but our regular walks are for about 45 min , we enjoy our walks but I feel I am  in a frump a Plato that even the walking isn’t helping much  now ! Back to the foods , I am not a baker nor much of a cook I can do it just never caught the desire to like some I prefer to spend my days outside or doing other things more then in the kitchen I do make the odd home made treat or soup , stew or Sunday roast  and Papa isn’t fussy on meals that don't consist of meat and potatoes , Oh well I guess I will figure it all out eventually lol  .

OCTOBER 2014 (7 of 13)

I cant believe my knock out rose bush is still blooming and growing new leaves , it seems to really like this weather we are having which has been up and down but more up with lots of sunshine mild temps and a bit breezy , the mornings have been frosty and pretty .  Any who I am done thinking out loud here or babbling which ever you want to call it lol so I guess this means I did have something to post then doesn’t it? lol ! There are times  my brain just gets going and the fingers follow and all just spills out even if it is a lot of dribble lol !

                                                                The things that make ya go HMM !

                                                                         Off for our walk now !  

                                                                              Until next time !

Food is a problem here to I try to eat more root veg this time of the year. As all ways you photo's are lovely.

I have been thinking more and more about the food we eat. I stopped buying the boxes of processed foods a long time ago, and we don't eat out as much anymore because I always, always had upset tums when I did. I know all about low metabolism. It is a very real thing and I can sympathize because I eat healthy and exercise and it is still a struggle. I also think genes have a lot to do with it. It was a bit of a shock to look in the mirror one day, and wake up to the realization that my grandmother was staring back at me, body shape and all, lol. Your photos are great as always.

Sorry you are feeling a bit down at present. Dark evening does have that affect on people. Have you ever read the book Raw energy? I discovered te book in 1986 and although I do not always stick to it, when I do I always feel more energised. Look up

Oh, the dilemma of eating the right things, getting exercise, etc., etc., etc. You did a great job for having nothing to write about!

I hear ya Elaine! It's so hard to maintain a good weight and for me to get walking. I've gained a lot the past year and can't seem to lose it. I don't walk like I should due to knee and hip problems of late, plus I mind the cold and wind terribly too so I stay inside. When we had our dog I used to walk him every day no matter the weather. And no, we won't get another dog! And the slow metabolism really makes it all worse. Such is life. I try to keep active, eat small, healthy meals and drink lots of water. Sweets are my biggest downfall though. I find this time of the year my blog 'fodder' gets low too. Don't stop though. There are still things to take pics of and write about. :)

Hi sweet friend, it has gotten so very cold here today that I didn't even walk the dog. Good for you that you walk so much. It is hard when we can't get out to get some exercise. I've been eating mainly veges and will either do a juice or a smoothie for lunch. I still lead to lose a few pounds for my blood pressure to go down. I'm sorry you have been feeling low. We all care about you and love your blog-your photos are breathtaking.
Hugs, Noreen

80% eating right and 20% enjoying some semi bad foods! I try to eat well most of the time, but have a cheat day every now and again!

I can't be sure, but I think it was snowing here the other night. I felt something falling against me that wasn't like rain.

Beautiful shots!

Hello Elaine girl : )
I know how you feel ... although you are way ahead of me with the walking and all that wonderful country fresh air !
I have to get on the treadmill ... and face my yoga once and for all because I know I will feel so much better for it.
This year has been my worst .. so you would think that would force me to get going with all of that ! haha
Maybe we think too much and that tires us out ? LOL
Joy : )

Linda said...

Cheers!
Linda :o)

I also can't believe that Rose is pushing out such beautiful roses. Blog block, happens to most of us, usually it happens to me when I know there is yard work to do and I'm sitting blogging, lol nothing will get through until I get that yard work done.
