Have a great weekend

Z0087586Hi all,

Sorry I am not around much at the moment, there is so much catching up to do at home, especially in the garden. I have been planting lots of new Spring bulbs, Daffodils, Tulips, Bulb Iris and Dwarf Iris. I have cleared the veg plot and spread the home made compost around.

I have trimmed back lots of the shrubs but there is still much to do.

I have also been doing the training for the health walks I have volunteered to lead for people who have been in ill health and their doctor has decided they are ready for a little vigorous exercise in the form of an hours reasonably fast walking for an hour twice a week.

I had to renew my first aid certificate to lead the walks and was surprised how much had changed, I completed the course and was re-certified last week.

I have been doing the walks twice a week as an observer for the last 2 weeks and next Wednesday we have a meeting to allocate walks to leaders for the next 3 months.

I have also been looking at leading the health cycle rides for people at the next level of health development, but unfortunately these are going to clash with the walks so at the moment I will only be able to do the rides on the days I am not leading a walk.

For my part some good news I have got my weight down to my target weight for my age and with the additional exercise I have been doing my blood pressure has now dropped into what they call the "Optimal Zone" which means it has consistently been below the "normal" 120/80 and on average has been about 116/68, the doc cut my BP meds by 50%  for the next 2 weeks if my BP stays in the Optimal Zone we are going to try cutting out the meds completely, fingers crossed LOL;)

With Winter well underway now and some very cold weather anticipated next week I have not been out shooting much but I am planning to wrap up and get out during the week if we get snow,

Mom and I have started to get the decorations out we always start with the fire place in the living room and we decked that out this week and also mad and put up the wreath on the front of the house.

Marci will be here on the 27th December and will be here for almost 3 weeks we are both very excited to be getting back together after a whole series of mishaps that have kept us apart this year.

Well thats my knews for now I will be blogging more from now on but I will not be spending as much time on line as I did before, since the demise of Multiply I have found a whole new raft of rich experience I am enjoying at the moment along with making some new friends in my local community.

Have a wonderful weekend and may your God be with you;)



  1. Hi Baz it is good that you keep in touch.
    I love your Christmas Decorations. It truly is..Beginning to look a lot like Christmas in your home. Thanks.

  2. Hi Baz. Glad to hear you're getting back to full fitness after your enforced 'rest' due to that bout of severe Bronchitis. Hope those walks go well, have fun!! Nice decorations.

  3. Wonderful to "see" you again, old friend. Good to hear you are getting on top of things, health wise and otherwise. Your place looks truly Christmassy ........... I am not around that much either, blogging yes, but the constant checking and worrying about contacts and updating etc has gone, with it all the stress, also find getting other things done I enjoy and have even got time to join a couple of other groups. I am so impressed with you volunteering to help out with the walks, please do not overdo it though.

  4. Loks like you are a busy man. its starting to look like Christmas

  5. Welcome back to blogging world and glad you are feeling much better and back into your normal activities. I have been getting my Christmas things out too.
