Beautiful day

Thursday, January 05, 2012

Still chilly this morning but we broke 60 degrees a few minutes ago and the sun is shining. It is not supposed to be so cold tonight so we can go back to enjoying our Florida winters.

I've had a minor cleaning frenzy this morning and got a bathroom and my office taken apart, cleaned and put back together. Everything is looking and smelling sooooooo clean!

Now it is exercise time.

I've been roasting the extra turkey we got for Christmas and just finished cutting it up and freezing it for other meals. We'll have sandwiches tonight for supper out of it, and there's 4 other meals now ready for us in the freezer. But the whole house smells like the turkey now. YUM! emoticon

    I love that smell! FRESH! It's been really nice here in West Texas for the last two weeks... just right for the holidays! Have a wonderful day!

By the way, thanks for being such an encouraging and supportive spark friend! That means so much to me! emoticon

Up too early today...

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

It is so rare that we actually use heat here in central Florida that I found it waking me up as it clicked off and on. Our winters do not usually include morning temps of 36 such as we had today. I think I will do my stationary bike first this morning and save the walk for a little later when it warms up just a bit!

    I remember being in Jacksonville for business and running in 40 degree weather. Later, I noted many people had jackets on but it's a normal temperature for me up north!

    I found myself listening to the heater also. And thinking about the electric meter clicking along!

    It has been cooler here too...lows in the 60`s and highs in the lower 70's. I was in my pants and fleece sweatshirt all day today. When you are used to 90's and hot and humid...this is cold to us!!

    I was cold this morning too. I wasn't sure how the water at the Y would be but it was nice and warm for our work out. Getting out of the water was another issue though! Br-rrrrr!

  It was 36 in Titusville when we got up. It's now about 41 degrees. Thankfully we'll be back in the 70's in another couple of days. emoticon

I think it is waning...........

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

OK, I'm finally wearing out - sure would like one more day of this frenzy of cleaning and taking down Christmas but I don't think it is going to happen. My office, one bathroom and two more bedrooms still need to be seriously cleaned - maybe I'll get one of these moods one day next week.

For today I took a mid morning walk waiting for it to warm up and it was still cold and windy. I have a pot of split pea with ham soup bubbling away on the stove - most will go to my neighbor who watches our house when we are away. I finished cleaning the family room, did the kitchen and our bedroom and bath - enough already!

I have errands to run and will go do those so I will still be busy and productive. emoticon

    Wow! You are impressive! Here I thought I was doing well by doing 120 minutes in the pool, a 30 minute walk and an 8 minute cardio video. You must be taking your vitamins!

Feeling ambitious today....

Monday, January 02, 2012

I'm having one of those days when I want to tear through the house and clean everything. I don't get them very often and this started when I was cleaning up from the trip home yesterday. As I was putting those things away, I started taking down the Christmas decorations and putting those away, too and I noticed some cobwebs. The next thing I knew the furniture was pulled out from the wall and everything was being cleaned. I found some things to put in the box for the church thrift shop and it just snowballed from there. I've finished the dining room, living room and am heading for the family room - if I get that done I'll be happy for today.

    First of the year is a good time to "winter clean". A couple of more months and we will be "spring cleaning". Thanks for the comment on my blog. I also need to eat more fruits and veggies so good luck with your goals to do that. Have a great day.

  Don't you hate it when you see 1001 other things you need to do when all you had planned was to pack a few things away? LOL! emoticon

Early morning mountain walk

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

I got my early morning walk up the mountain today and it was awesome. The deer were out and about. The mountain views were spectacular as the trees are all bare and the air was crisp and cold (32 degrees). Tonight is going down to the 20's so not sure if I will get out early tomorrow or wait until the sun warms up some. Anyway, I walked for an hour - uphill most of the way and I came home exhilarated. I went out shopping with daughter and grand and 4 hours later we were back - talk about tired feet! What a great day!
