Good Fairy Cloud

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Yup I am a nut about clouds. Take a look at this picture. The face is the upper part of the cloud and the fairy has a wand. Do you see it, or something else? I am tired, hot and cranky so perhaps my imagination is running wild. I hope

A Walk with the Kids...

Thursday, August 18, 2011

The kids and I went for a walk in the neighborhood. It sure was hot and humid!

Weena being dark and Spanky with his bad heart and short, fat me...I think I lost at least a pound in sweat. The scenery was great. The colors wonderful, and my mountains receiving spot showers, along with awesome clouds, made the walk bearable if not cool.

Volleyball season (officiating) starts tonight. Won't get that late evening walk in but I was awesome at the gym this morning. Have a safe, entertaining and active day!

It's time to get back on schedule and to become more accountable for eating and exercising. I basically lived on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a month when I was taking classes out of state. I am currently paying much closer to the amount and types of food ingested.

It's time to start looking for more classes to take as well. They will have to be online courses because the local university offers nothing that I need in the evenings.

It's time after I go on an extended bike ride tomorrow to go and get a new pair of running shoes. My current shoes have a good thousand miles on them and although they look feet, ankles and legs have been quite uncomfortable during and especially after my P.E. classes.

It's time to think about going to I bid you good night with the hope that you have a great weekend, safe and active.

    I don't know what it is about peanut butter but that's what I've been craving lately. I've been eating a lot of it. Counting it in to my daily calories and most days not bad but still I need to get back to more variety.
Good luck with finding the classes you need. I'm so glad to see you're back. Hope your ride is great today. Not sure which direction you're heading but up through the mountains is beautiful now. I've been getting out and doing more hiking that direction. The rains have made it so nice.

    Glad that you are back home. I take i school is either started or about to. PB & J's are one of my favorite, but I suppose it was also cheap and convenient during that time. At least that's the way I think about stuff. Back to the bike. good for you.

    1000 miles is pretty impressive, those shoes have history

On-line courses can give you more flexibility with your schedule, or do you prefer the in-class learning style

you rock

    WTG! I think you are the best and I always look forward to hearing about your fitness activities. If I could only do a third of what you do I would be more than happy.
I hope you will find a great pair of running shoes.

I came home this weekend for my 30th high school reunion. I probably should just be studying as next week is finals week and I have three tests in four days, BUT 30 years does not happen that often.
We are going to have a memorabilia table and I was asked to bring my high school letterman's jacket with all of its goodies. Took me a while to work on it and get it ready to go. Here it is in all of its ancient glory.

Not the best of angles but I don't have too much time to mess with it at the moment. Enjoy your weekend!
