The New Year~
WOW!!! It's almost 2010!I just can't believe that. I'm not going to make any resolutions this year but I am making some "promises" to myself.(sounds a little better in my mind) I am hoping to be able to lose some stress/comfort eating weight that I've been carrying around now for about 5 years. I also want to start exercising.I know I can't do much at first but that's ok.I have a treadmill that's taking up space in the garage so I'm going to bring that inside and actually USE it. I'm 2 days in to my new "eating/lifestyle" change and so far so good. I'm not going to deprive myself but I am going to eat less andf try to make more sensible choices. This year has not been the easiest and I'm feeling much stonger and more confident for the upcoming year ahead. I've come to learn that life is really what we make of it so this year I'm going to do everything I can to make it better for all of us!
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
