Happy Day!!!

Friday, August 20, 2010

Thursday I did 10 minutes on the Wii. Then took the grandkids (2 of them today) on a 20 minute walk. We met a dog with only 3 legs. It is amazing how they can get around.

Took the kids to McDonalds for lunch and had a salad. I love their salads. Then we went to the Dollar store, yippee (that was the kids that said yippee). Had a fun day.

Today we get all 5 kids. We are going to pick up our race packets for tomorrow before the kids get here. We are walking a 3 miler at the Palisade Peach Festival. They do have yummy peaches.

    Sounds like a lovely day! My late brother had a dog who had lost one leg to cancer and they called the poor thing "Tripod". Glad you had a good time!

    Hi Yvonne
I can feel the excitement in your writing about the grandkids, It is so special to be able to enjoy them.
Enjoy your walk tomorrow, I guess it's not considered a 5K.
Thank you for sharing your time with your grandchildren

    What a good grandmother you are emoticon for taking them walking.

You have me thinking about the dog with 3 legs. I bet it wasn't even an option for him to not walk and overcome his handicap. So to we keep going the best we can.

Have a great week-end Yvonne

Exercise pays off in a different way.

I had the best bike ride of my life this morning. We were riding a path between a house and a park. In the back yard of the house was a deer and 2 babies. When they saw us, they took off like a shot. Went over the 4 foot fence like it wasn't even there, even the babies. They were gone in a flash. What a thrill.

  Thanks for telling us about such a beautiful moment!! The one thing I miss about living in Mack is the lack of wildlife in our yard! I'm so glad that your heart was lifted by such a pretty "picture!" emoticon

I think that is so beautiful, riding in nature and to experience the deer, it had to be a awesome sight. Thank you for sharing this.

    I wish I could find the computer hook up to my cell phone. I have a couple of pictures of deer in my son's front yard. They live in Casper, Wy and the deer come down from the mountain and follow this little creek that meanders through their neighborhood. They have a cherry tree in the front yard and every since the deer discovered it a couple of years ago, they come by early in the morning, about 6am, during the summer months for a treat. I couldn't hardly believe it at first, but they left a lot of "jelly beans" behind as a calling card. I wish i could have a bike ride like that around here. i haven't seen any babies in a long time. How cool is that!!!!!???? What an awesome morning you had!!! Hope it happens again soon.

    We have a momma dear and her two babies living around us. We can see them on the drive sometimes. One time as we were driving down the lane, the momma went one way and the babies went another way. They found their way back together because I've seen them together since then.

Just Thinking

Friday, August 13, 2010

Yesterday whenever I moved my stomach hurt. Needless to say I didn't move around much. I only had about 1500 steps on my pedometer. What was interesting is that I wasn't really hungry and ate under my calorie limit. That never happens even when I am sick.

Today my stomach doesn't hurt. It is just uncomfortable when I move. I decided I needed to walk this morning anyway. Didn't walk quite as fast as I normally would, but I walked for 1/2 hour. I'm even going to make my 8,000 step goal today. Also haven't been very hungry today and may have trouble getting up to my minimum nutrition goal. Wish every day could be like this.

    I'm glad your o k but I would keep an eye on it. When your not hungry there's a reason.

    I hope you are feeling okay Yvonne and are not ill.
My appetite only leaves me when I'm ill or upset. I hadn't been wearing my pedometer for days but have had it on the past couple of days. Not getting quite what I want but will work up to it again.

Thoughts for Life

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

This was on another persons blog and thought it was good enough to share.


* Accept that some days you're the pigeon,
And some days you're the statue.


* Always keep your words soft and sweet,
Just in case you have to eat them.

* Always wear stuff that will make you look good
If you die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
"recalled" by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again,
It was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to be kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
Because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

* When everything's coming your way,
You're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world,
But you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* We could learn a lot from crayons...Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today...

    Too true! I had to share a couple of these with my husband. We know a couple people that this one applies to: * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again,
It was probably worth it. Ha! Ha! Have a great day.
