Zelda watched me while doing my stretching in the morning, after all we have learned from the cats! Just a few movements well done already give a good feeling. Of course what is important is that we do it regularly, which means to get up a little bit earlier ..... which means that we should go to bed a little bit earlier ...... ok doing just that now!

I am having a two days managerial course and you know I had difficulty, especially after lunch, to keep my eyes open, even though it was really interesting. Only during the team-exercise I felt my energy growing again.

Good night and sweet dreams.
Love, Margherita Smile
That's perfect for the start, dear Inda!
Stretching, stretching ....
Isn't it great, that there are always Mondays coming up, when we shall begin exercising, dieting etc.!!
Today I have the intention of at least walking a little ....
Happy Valentine's Day to all.
Love, Margherita Smile
Dear Inda that must have been fun yesterday! hmmmm ...... I must go and reach for a praline myself now ....my husband was so nice and got me some Ferrero Rocher in a heart-shaped box and with a little poem of his!! Useless to say that I appreciated both.

Ok, on Monday, no excuses!
Love, Margherita Smile
Time to relax, after the shopping, carrying those heavy bags is also an exercise!

Dear Lilie,
I have been very lazy as well, not to mention Sue Cat2.Margherita at least has been walking.

I am afraid Vicky said she will get after us tomorrow(Monday) and I think she means it.

To warm myself up for the action I did my yoga this morning.

Good of you to be on a diet. A medical friend once told me that the best way to diet is to eat most healthy foods, but just eat small portions. That seems to work well for me. I do limit my dessert intake during the week.

Here is more love for you to help you keep to the diet

Wow, dear Inda, thank you for sharing those beautiful Hawaiian sayings!

The world needs the light of love. It needs the peace of it, the blessing of it, and the purifying qualities it possesses.

Lately, I am not very good in dieting ... always beginning on Monday!!!

Today I was in the mood of walking quickly, but my husband said "don't run" ... so I slowed down. When I walk with my daughter, she is the one to run of course and I seem slow to her. That's it, different paces, but at least we all walk.



Walking in silence
nature whispers love to us
and deep peace unfolds


A haiku for you.

With all my love.
Margherita Smile
All right everyone,
Monday is here BBall

I did my yoga and I walked to work- 2km,
and I am walking back home. Even though it is still cold here, it felt like this:
(I am not the one that is trying to sneak back)

This is Monday morning here, and I see we have a pretty good start BBall CoolDance

Lunch looks healthy also, and a little bit of bread will do no harm. Just remember to have a nutricious dinner, maybe some fish, vegetables and another salad.You can add a little rice or potatoes, but keep the portions small. Those who are allowed to drink milk, that is also good. I usually sprinkle some nuts on my salad or vegetables. Drink lots of fluids.

Have a nice day. Wave
Vicky
Hi Girls.
I got enough exercise with my cats this morning, trying to give them their medication and keeping Oliver from eating Lilie's food.

Keep to the diet Karima. I once belonged to "Weightwatchers" and they also recommended smaller portions. This works well for me. At the moment I don't have a weight problem, but my cholesterol level is high, so I need to watch my diet again. Let us keep the goodies for the weekend!

Dear Friends,
I kept my promise...did my yoga, walked to work and back, and now I am in the mood to climb up these terraces and be inspired to enjoy the view.

This brings a poem to my mind :

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind,
but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.
Climb slowly, steadily, enjoying each passing moment; and the view from the summit will serve as a fitting climax for the journey.

~ Harold V. Melchert

Very brave of you Lilie Nut
Are we swimming or rafting Surf

Well ,since we are all so eager, I thought we might attempt something a bit more challenging.
can you see the little mountain goat high up on the right...that's who we are visiting

Hafiz is encouraging us along with this poem:

A GREAT NEED

Out of a great need
We are holding hands
And climbing.
Not loving is letting go.
Listen,
The terrain around here
Is far too dangerous
For that.

I see it was definitely worth the climb.
We made it to the top.Good exercise everyone!
Enjoy the view!
*****************

I FOLLOW BAREFOOT

I long for you so much
I follow barefoot Your frozen tracks

That are high in the mountains
That I know are years old.

I long for You so much
I have even begun to travel
Where I have never been before.

Hafiz, there is no one in this world
Who is not looking for God.

Everyone is trudging along
With as much dignity, courage
And style

As they possily
can.

~Hafiz

I have just returned from a long and exhausting trip, so I am afraid I will not be exercising.

I am very glad to find you all still here, so I will sip my coffee and enjoy watching the images.
The image of spring is beautiful, Karima. I just returned from France, where it is a lot milder than here, but your picture has the promise of spring.

Gisele
Everyone did well last week.

Thank you for the promise of spring Karima,
I can't wait for it to come.

Now it is a new week and keep up the exercises BBall. you too Sue!! BBall Gisele has an excuse, she needs to rest from her trip. Not too much coffee Gisele!

Have a nice week everyone.
Vicky

I am planning to go there 3 times a week on top of my walking UFO

Now here is something especially for Lilie,
but actually I will share it with you all

This will put a rejuvenating song in your hearts


...Chirp of spring to me,
Sparrows from your tree.

Never mind the showers;
Chirp about the flowers
While you build a nest:
Straws from east and west,
Feathers from your breast,
Make the snuggest bowers
In a world of flowers...

From APRIL by: Christina Rossetti

Dear Lilie,
This image is so lovely,
it is truly food for the soul.

Vicky is right we need to look after the soul as well as the body. Happiness and love are the best medicine.

I couldn't resist this silly little picture,
sorry about the quality, but the original was very small
