Autumn

Thursday, October 08, 2009



It finally feels like Fall weather. It's been cool and a little windy here in Southern California. I love that the sun still peeks through though! It makes exercising and walking a lot easier and much more comfortable for everything else. I don't know what it is like where you live, but I hope you are enjoying this weather too!

    Well, it can't decide whether it's going to be cold or balmy here in Oklahoma. Today it's warm, yesterday was bitter cold with rain and SHARP winds - who knows what tomorrow will be like?!?! I like the overcast weather, but can do without the wind!
Glad to know you're enjoying your weather!

    I live in South Florida and we have had record temps over 93 degrees but I would not change it for the world. I love the sun and walking on the beach.

    Sounds like you have perfect weather for walking. That's nice. It is nice here in Kentucky too, or at least it was today. It's supposed to rain tomorrow though so we'll get through that. I spent the day outside exercising today. I loved it!

May God bless you richly, Shirley

  You know I live close to you Linda! Who says California does not have seasons?! You know it's Fall in Southern California when you have to put a sweater on in the morning for a couple of hours! My favorite time of the year..warm and beautiful but cozy and cooler too! emoticon emoticon

Happy "60" Birthday High School Reunion

Monday, September 28, 2009

Last night was our Happy "60" Birthday party and I had a really awesome time. I even got to talk to some people about Spark People.
I got to see people I had not seen for years and it was fun looking them up in the year book.
We had a band play that played for us in high school. They were as fabulous last night as they were then.
I danced and laughed and now I'm exhausted! LOL!!! The best exercise ever!!!!!

    I never made it to my 10, 15 or 20 year reunions. We were living all the way across the US and it was just too pricey.
Glad you had fun!

I love to walk

Friday, September 11, 2009

Last time I blogged I got a lot of advice on how to keep from getting sunstroke and I had already gotten that info so I wanted to verify that I walk at night and early in the morning mostly and drink lots of water.
We do need to get informed with these things so I appreciate those who were concerned but I walk all the time and thank God that I use wisdom when I do.
Today was really hot and yet I managed to walk a lot because it was really cool in the morning and again at night.
I am also careful at night when I walk and where I walk.
For those like me who love to be outdoors, ask God for help when we don't know for sure what to do! He will give us the wisdom we need.
I also thank God for people who give me advice.
God Bless you all and have a great weekend!
Linda
(((HUGS)))

    Great blog Linda - but fresh air in California :o) at anytime would be amazing. :o) But I agree at least it is cooler in the AM and PM. And God is our protector where ever we are. I was walking on the camp road (way out in the boonies) and I took a walkie talkie with me so I could call if I ran into a cougar or other such animal. My husbands words of wisdom to me were to call out to God first. :o)

    Walking in the fresh air and among God's beautiful creation is a winning combination. I would like walking more if it didn't hurt so badly. Do you take music with you? That can be a great addition. Keep up the great job! Hugs, Jane emoticon emoticon

    Morning is better than evening for me for walking outdoors simply b/c the humidity has built up and the mosquitoes! Good to see you're walking and being careful!

Really hot!

Sunday, August 30, 2009





Hi everyone!
Wow! It has been really hot here in So. Cal. I love the heat but it can really keep you from high energy exercise. I have been able to keep walking over 10, 000 steps a day but it's been a stretch to do so! One day I only did about 6,500 steps but that's because I had a headache too! It's been fun trying to keep up my 10,000 plus everyday. It's been a major challenge but fun!!!!
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I sure am.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Keep drinking your water and have a blessed weekend!
Linda

    It HAS been hot - I'm sure here in Oklahoma it's not as hot as CA or GA, though!
GREAT JOB on getting those steps in - every "little" step adds up

    emoticon Girl. I hope to someday tolerate the Texas heat as well as you have handled the So. Cal. heat. Be strong, but be careful. It only takes 1 heat stroke to know there are some days the 10,000 steps should be done inside. In the water is another great option!

    You're doing great on getting those steps in! I can relate to the heat living in Florida. We've seen some record-breaking temps and I'm ready for cooler weather!
