Happy Friday, Journal & Friends,
It is Week 9 of The Perfect 10 Challenge!
My goal was to exercise 6 days a week, doing my DVD's, and my stretching exercises. I did great getting in the DVD sessions, but struggled to get in the stretching. I think it is because it seems like a waste of time! I "know" it's good for me, but it doesn't feel like I am accomplishing much. Well, until I can do something else, I'll just keep doing the stretching...
I do realize this about myself, that I need to feel that something is "productive", that it is giving results, or I have a hard time continuing.
For instance, I watch my favorite tv shows in the evening, but save things like paperwork, bill paying, etc, to do while I watch. I find it nearly impossible to just sit and watch... it feels like a waste of precious time. Anyway, right now I am taking it on faith that the time spent stretching IS productive.
Now for that Unknown Fact about myself... it IS getting harder each week!
This may sound weird, but I really enjoy "functional landscaping." Plants that not only look beautiful, but produce something. So, when we moved here last year, we planted a Dwarf Peach tree in our back yard.
Last year Frosty (yes, we named it!) only produced 4 peaches... but man oh man, they were soooo good! Absolutely luscious. This year we expect it to double or triple that. :-)
We also planted 4 varieties of Blueberry bushes in our front yard. They are beautiful to look at all year round, and also produced the most tasty fabulous blueberries! I was astounded at how a blueberry was REALLY supposed to taste, picked right from the bush. It was like eating candy... a true dessert, just plain and pure.
And this year on the trellis' in the front of the house, we are planting Snow Peas.
It will look pretty, and it's a VEGGIE, and a green one at that. :-)
