AMORE... Ah ....sweet love is on the horizon.... As we quickly move past January into the month of hearts and valentines..I am reminded, how quickly time passes. I'm in awe of all the precious gifts that might be overlooked if, I  do not take the time to give thanks for the love of family  and friends.
I am also reminiscing about life, as the seasons come and go ...  and realizing that it's time to move onto new and exciting journeyswith light heartedness and joy !!! 

YES..It's time to lose weight when you no longer fit into that little  black, size 5 dress  ( Ha Ha)... Even my fingers and  feet seem to have gotten alittle fatter and I wear  wider shoes and flat boots,  that are less than fashionable... AH... Yes... It has  finally happened ... middle age has set in, for a long winters nap.

"Oh woe is me".... Should I become dramatic and submerge myself into the flowery, swollen waters of a reedy river like  Shakespeares', "Ophelia"? ... She is ever adored and heralded in classic paintings....Drama, drama, drama!!!

No... I'd  like to think of myself as a modern sort of  woman, who can battle the raging perils of age, in a dignified manner ...  so, I jogged out and bought myself  some vitamin E capsules for swollen eyes and wrinkles, a new water bottle, to puff out the sagging dehydrated bits and a recumbent bike, to ease my aching joints, when I  do take the time to exercise.( Huff'n'Puff)
Yes, my friends,  I'm encouraging  you, myself and I, to do alittle extra peddling, in the love of " self " arena ... Wishing you all, a safe and healthy journey this year... I'll race you around the calender block ....  Ladies.
