Hi, Thanks for visiting my page. I live near Calgary, Alberta Canada on a small ranch where we have cattle, a wild cat and several thoroughbred horses that are on a race track all summer.The cat has it best though, all she needs to do is keep the mouse population down and if she feels lazy she doesn't even have to do that cause she has a self feeder and waterer!!! . I see her pregnant every spring but somehow never see kittens. Have no idea what that's about but would be so very happy if some would suddenly be seen playing on the lawn!!! Gardening, taking pictures and oh yes reading are some of my favorite things to do. Love the outdoors and my house sure looks like it in summer!!! Life is grand.

I became an Avon Rep in the summer of 2018 but that has slowly dwindled to nil. Haven't made any money but can say with confidence that I have lots of products!!!

Oh yes, did I mention that I am horribly addicted to sugar. Once I start eating that demon food I just can't seem to quit so my weight yo yos like crazy. If only I would stay away from them I know my weight would remain more constant, I would feel better, have more energy and beat the depression that sets in when I go on one of my many binges. Does anyone see a pattern here? Sugar, depression, emotional eating, sugar . . . . . and round and round it goes.

March 12, 2019 My efforts to lose weight have failed miserably and I'm up to the weight I was when I started SparkPeople. I haven't been tracking my food on SP for nearly a year and have started again today.
