I just love those little pockets on athletic bottoms that have space for your MP3 players or keys or iPods.
So I mostly use my iPod as a pedometer to track my steps. Some days I leave it in my pocket all day. Occasionally I will use it, along with the pod in my Nike+ shoes, to track my runs.
I just pulled my clothes out of the dryer and found my iPod, still hot, inside my little pocket!
So I hit the button, nothing. Would you plug it up when it cools down?

Along with several other fruits, I have found a love for blueberries this year. I'm eating them right now in my whole grain cereal. They are a little soft, I'm thinking that's because I froze them? I'm still learning, but I think I read somewhere you don't freeze blueberries. If you know, let me know.
I was in the home improvement store yesterday and looked at the blueberry plant/bush/tree --- what do you call it? My first thought - it won't live in my yard. As I'm savoriing these delicious berries, I'm seriously considering going back and purchasing one of those bushes. After all, it wouldn't be in my local store if it weren't appropriate for this region. Another reason I didn't purchase the blueberry plant was because I already had an unpriced lemon tree in my cart. Unfortunately I had to leave the lemon tree, which rang up at $40, at the register and decided I would look for it at the flea market.
Do any of you grow blueberries? What is your experience? I want to be able to show my harvest to you, my Sparkfriends, in the future.

I was recently having a conversation with my mom who lives next door to me. I mentioned I would be retiring eventually and was considering studying fitness and nutrition, particularly group fitness training. Getting healthy is a very tricky subject to discuss with some people, my mom is one. She quickly replied "Maybe you are too old!". I was not surprised by this negative response as I have come to expect that from her. Mom is very strong and have worked her garden for hours some days, almost every day the weather is nice, as long as I've known her but that is not for me. I like running, walking, fitness DVDs, hooping, boxing, etc. Whatever works for the individual. No two are the same.
So..... my response - "I'll just teach group exercise to older people then". She was happy with my response and there were no hurt feelings on either part.
