Kats’ Korner: Gardening, Hot Tub and Anniversary

This spring has been a soggy one, to say the least. Do you have your vegetables and flowers planted? We finally finished planting our garden and flowers yesterday. I am hoping to grow green beans this year! Last year, the rabbits kept eating them. Once they are up, I am putting a fence around them!

We have been focusing more and more on healthy eating. It is so important to drink lots of water, eat healthy and exercise.

It is hard with the busy lives we lead. Between work and our other obligations, making time for exercise is difficult.

I bought a Garmin band that keeps me moving! It keeps tracks of my steps, miles, heart rate, etc. It also shows what time it is. I don’t have to charge it either. It runs on a watch battery. It also syncs to an app on my IPhone so I can keep track of my progress from day to day.

We recently purchased a portable/inflatable hot tub. We haven’t used it yet. We are going to have another electrical outlet installed first. Hopefully this week! I am so excited to use it! I am sure it will do a wonder for Jeff’s sore back.

We don’t treat ourselves to many luxuries. I have wanted one for a while and finally talked Jeff into it.

Now we can go from our pool to the hot tub! What a treat!

I just hope this cold, soggy spring turns into a warm, beautiful summer!

Jeff and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in July. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband. I cherish every moment with him.

We are fortunate to have lived and loved each and every day together. I remind myself every day how lucky I am.

I hope we can get away for a few days sometime this summer to celebrate our milestone, but if not, that is fine too.

I don’t care where I am as long as I am with him!


Thought for the day: Cherish every moment you are blessed to be on earth! Time flies!

Have a great week!
