Just a few random thoughts ...

Thursday, January 20, 2011

It is spitting rain and snow, again. No accumulation expected here, but the roads may get icy again. We seem to go from 50 degrees, to snowing with great regularity these days. It's no wonder so many are staying sick.

One more day of work this week, then 4 off and back at it. Hopefully I can get a bit of sewing done while I'm off. Should clean the house, but I've missed my sewing more than my cleaning.

The grands will be here again this weekend. DD and I are going to a wedding Sat night, so we may pick them up tomorrow instead of Sat (depends on how tired I am). The weekend is supposed to be nice and warm, so perhaps another hike is in order.

Well, I have another early day tomorrow, so it is off to bed. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

Life is good.

    Oh a hike sounds nice:) I'm hoping to get in a bike ride. I also hope to organize some of my scrapbooking supplies. We'll see:) Enjoy those grandkids!

  Sewing is a lot more fun!

I'm going to do some yarn room cleaning today, along with knitting, and by BOM arrived this week--it is drying now so i can press and cut after lunch.

Missed a few days

Sunday, January 16, 2011

but I'm back again. Even with extra work days, I have been managing to get my exercise in. Love that trainer when it is icy outside. My new pedometer is so much better than the old one. I am managing to get over my 10,000 steps every day.

Today was a beautiful day. We took the grands to lunch after church and decided to go to Cheaha State park for a hike. It isn't far from our house and little did we realize how much snow and ice was left on top of the mountain from last week's storm. But we were dressed warm enough and all had a great time. Most of the trails were too slick for us, but still managed to get over 4 miles in, saw a lot of deer crossing the road, and had a great day outside for a change.

Life is good.

  Sounds like a good way to spend the day! It is wonderful that you are teaching your grands to be active, and that "old" does not mean "incapable". emoticon

Home again

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Well, the roads were clear so I could get to work today. If I had to go much further north I wouldn't have made it. We did get a few snow flurries while I was there, but nothing that stuck. It was a very busy day so I didn't run up and down the stairs but twice. Oh well, so goes life. Tomorrow is a new day and I'll get back on the trainer.

On a brighter note, I have an orthodontic appointment in the morning at 9 and they will schedule removal of my braces! I will be so very happy to eat normally again.

Life is good.

  WooHoo! getting the braces off! Now, a word from you friendly neighborhood dental assistant:

You still need to floss every day--yes, all the way under the retainers, if you have a permanent one--or two. Good news, it won't take near as long as it does now. And Listerine (or store brand) for any swollen gums. Next, you will spend about 3 days licking your teeth, thinking something is missing--and you could get used to this!

And last, time to schedule a cleaning with your regular dentist, just to make sure nothing untoward happened under those brackets!

That is great news. I remember when I got mine off--about 10 years ago! emoticon

    How exciting to get the braces off! I imagine you'll feel 10 pounds lighter.

Back to work tomorrow

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

The big storm seems to have gone around us. There was snow everywhere but here. We got lots of sleet and freezing rain. Saw just a few small flakes today, but no accumulation. Most roads are open again, so looks like I will be back to work tomorrow, unless roads are closed again tonight.

Way to cold and wet for me to get out and ride, so used the trainer. Got in 30 minutes yesterday and 25 minutes today. Add in the 30 minutes walking the dog, and I've gotten my cardio for the day. Not sure the dog is enjoying our walks, she doesn't get to sniff around to her hearts content.

  I'm hoping to get back to work tomorrow! I'm getting cabin fever. Also, it is easy not to snack all day there.

Glad you missed the big snow! emoticon

    We have snow on the ground right now but by the time I wake up it will be full on rain. No riding for me either. I did go to spin class today though. Really enjoyed it.

    Nice to hear the storm missed you guys. Sounds like a real mess down there. We get use to it up here.

The ice man cometh

Sunday, January 09, 2011

We went to church this morning, took the grands out to lunch, sent DD on her way back to school early and made it home before the sleet started. DD had to drive through some sleet on her way, but her roommates helped her carry everything in the dorm and she is save and sound. The dorm has a generator and she is stocked with goodies to eat if the power goes out or they don't feel like walking to the dining hall. DH left for work about 1:30, it started sleeting about 2:30 and hasn't stopped yet. We have a nice layer of ice on everything, but the power is still on. Hopefully DH won't have to spend the night at work and will be able to get home at midnight. Now, if the dog would just take herself out for her walks ....
