Still wondering - The Wonder Years

Still here
And there.

I wonder where I put my car keys ?
(the joy of electronic ignition is short lived when you can't find keys to lock the car because the key is buried somewhere - we don't lock the car at home)

I wonder if I took my pills ?
(I didn't )
I wonder why I came into this room ?
Several times a day

I wonder when my Dr's appointment is ?
(with which Dr)
I wonder where I put my glasses ?
20 times a day - now I need reading glasses when i wear my contact lens or take off my own prescription glasses to read

I wonder why I said that ?
What was the question?

I wonder if I paid the power bill ?
Fixed that with auto pay ...but is there enough money in the account ?

I wonder why it is so hot in here ?
Hot flushes oh the joy 

I wonder why my jeans have shrunk ?
Still shrinking - everything.

I wonder what the speed limit is ?
My car no longer tells me

I wonder if that police officer was looking at me ?
My husband was certainly wondering when the flashing lights came up behind him last week ... it wasn't him but he was worried

I wonder why my days are swallowed up at a time (all this wondering for a start)?
Lazy FB addict 

I wonder why I put that or this there ?
yes ...moving on

I wonder why the 'things' that I am wondering where I put them, are found only the day after I needed them or 10 mins after I buy a new one ?
Seriously annoying.

I wonder if I replied to that email ?
...better check

I wonder if I locked the door ?
I don't even have house keys

wonder if I turned the iron off ?
If I don't it goes to sleep

I wonder why weight loss doesn’t have to involve countless hours sweating the kilojoules off ?

I wonder if half an hour of kissing can really help you burn in excess of 126 kilojoules ?

Great , so I wonder if to lose 1 kg of body fat in a week and you need to burn an additional 37,000 kJ, the maths how long do you have to kiss to lose a few kilos?
Didn't test it 

I wonder if this gets you both in the mood - could you could boost your kilojoule burn with extra physical activity in the bedroom ? # see below
I wondered enough so I goggled it and a 30 minute sex session could account for around 600 kilojoules.
Not happening

I wonder why everything hurts ?
Every day

I wonder what this is growing in my Tupperware container ?
It was celery I bought for juicing ...not composting.

I wonder why I can't follow the google maps unless it is the right way up ?
No change

I wonder why everyone asks me where I put their "things" ?
As if I know

I wonder how I spell that word ?
Google my friend.

I wonder why things are so unfair sometimes ?
There is no sense in all the suffering.

I wonder why I can't make my mind up ?

I wonder if I should buy that ?
Why I spent at least 30 mins a day adding things to shopping carts I don't buy.

I wonder if I should have dessert ?
Yes please ...

Every day I continue to embrace the wonder years .

What do you wonder ?

When I told my husband about the bedroom activity - he said I wonder how they test these things out ...

Twenty eight years

Happy 28th Anniversary 

Marriage is a lot like riding a bike ...

You have to invest lots of energy to keep going .

Look after each other; a well oiled and maintained bike will ride more smoothly and change gear easily

Explore, enjoy new adventures and appreciate the old routes.

Don’t just be fair weather riders , brave the rain and storms, for sunshine and rainbows  will follow if you hang in there

Endure the obstacles and mountains , the hill climb may be long and you won’t always see what is ahead . Ride together with passion, love and forgiveness to reap the rewards of the downhills!

Keep pedalling down the road of life to reach the destination together - same goals -remember you are on the same team.

If you make it to end of the trail and have survived the bumps and flat tyres - fist pump ! 


Life doesn't always go as planned , sometimes the storms come to clear the path not disrupt life. We've seen more than our fair share of storms. Just saying ...

28th wedding anniversary gift from my hubstar.

It was such a thoughtful gift with my new love of all things cycling.

Plus 120 pegs because you can never have enough pegs 

Still love his wicked sense of humour.

I did not write this just a friend posted it to Facebook yesterday and I thought it was worth copying and passing's very true and the timing is perfect.

For some people so eager to call it quits and throw in the towel on your relationships because everything isn’t “perfect” is some food for thought.
Lifelong commitment is not what most people think it is. It's not waking up every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed until both of you fall asleep, peacefully, at night. It's not a clean home filled with laughter and lovemaking, everyday.
It's someone who steals all the covers. It's slammed doors and a few harsh words, at times. It’s stubbornly disagreeing and giving each other the silent treatment until your hearts heal...and, then...forgiveness!
It's coming home to the same person, everyday, that you know loves and cares about you in spite of (and because of) who you are. It's laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. 
It's about dirty laundry and unmade beds WITHOUT finger pointing. It's about helping each other with the hard work of life! It's about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud.
It's about eating the easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10 p.m. to eat because you both had a crazy day. 
It's when you have an emotional breakdown and your Love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay...and you BELIEVE them. It's about still loving someone even though, sometimes, they make you absolutely insane.

Living with the person you love is not perfect...sometimes it's hard; but it's amazing and comforting and one of the BEST things you'll ever experience.

Go ahead and share a picture of the person you love and copy and paste this as your status. Make their day...and yours! ❤️

Then there is always Therapy to help if you are struggling !!! 

PS My sincere thoughts go to those both who wish to experience ‘this’ and for those whom their marriage / relationship had their own reasons for ending. Namaste 🙏

... represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. This gesture is an acknowledgement of the soul in one by the soul in another. 
“Nama” means bow, “as” means I, and “te” means you.
I still have trouble hearing and saying it .

New Year . 
New Me.

I saw someone on my Facebook feed sharing Yoga with Adriene.

So I started with 1 of the 30 days of TRUE and I was hooked .

I've attended a few Yoga classes at the gym in the past and I'm still a beginner .
Extending myself is a new journey.

Having just finished Day 8 of daily Yoga with Adriene, at home, I am so grateful I found her channel. I can't wait for each daily email.

Adriene is 
a great teacher , easy going and natural. Complete with her dog, Benjy - a Blue Cattle (Blue Heeler) she is entertaining and light.

It's never to late to begin! It's free and anyone can join in on the action!

Daily practice makes progress ! I look forward to more progress, strength and 
stretch. I hope I can keep the journey going .


Do you enjoy Yoga ?
