over soreness from water exercise

Saturday, July 09, 2011

I never saw a pessimistic general win a battle
~~~~~~E E Cummings

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well that sore thing from water exercise was over by evening!! That was a great big surprise! Good Stuff. So I went for a little walk--&did my other exercise.

I have been canning and freezing things from my garden--fun-I want to make some Chow-Chow too--I will have to go to the farmers market and buy the stuff if I do. Just fun canning!!! When I had a family I would can a lot of fruit it seemed like the boxes of fruit would never end--but they were so good when winter came!

I am going to the Lake and see if I can catch a fish or 2. Even if nothing bites it beats sitting home eating! My style of fishing is more like a great rest--I throw my line in and then take a bit of walk an look at whats around-or read something light , or just sit and look out at the calm blue water and sky and thank God for this wonder!! If I am lucky that day I will cook some fresh fish .

Wishing you a great blessed day.

What did the fish say when it hit a concrete wall?

"Dam!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn

    Great blog, it is nice to read that some one still cans. I can remember growing up , helping my mother can. the last things that I canned was tomatoes and that was in the 1980's.
I like your idea on fishing. Perhaps you did catch tonight's dinner.
Thank you for sharing

water exercise good??

Friday, July 08, 2011

Soo, I went to do water exercise with the elderly women--me included--it should be simple--right? Some are in their 80's!!
The main point is to keep us flexible--This morning I have a lot of pain in my inner left foot!!! Now that's not good.
I guess the thing that I have to remember is that I must need more of that to keep my foot flexible---right??

It surprised me because I do my bike --stepper--swinger with no problem---I walk.
So what the heck??? emoticon

    I love water exercise and have never gotten sore, but I used to do it without shoes and wore a blister on my big toe and ended up with a hematoma and had to have minor surgery on it so, now I always wear watershoes. Be careful and protect your feet.

    No matter how good of shape you are, if you do something new, it may prove to be a little challenging. Keep up the good work!
