Daffodils to droopadils?

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Yeah, that's a weird title...Anyway...Those beautiful daffodils that were first open yesterday? Here they are today:

Yeah, around 80 yesterday and snow sticking to the ground today.

Started with lots of rain and turned to snow. We were out for breakfast, a car inspection and getting some fruit and veggies when it was raining. I was out getting a haircut in the midst of it snowing.
Tonight I found out that my sister will be visiting for a few days (staying with our folks), from out of town. She and her daughter. I already have plans to get together with a friend for lunch (belated birthday dinner) and a friend in the evening (to visit and watch a movie), but I imagine I'll see her somewhere in there and then the other days as well.
It's a good thing I have the week off from work!
Hubby helped me clean the pantry/closet in the kitchen today. It is so much nicer in there now. Seems like it's been a super busy day. I haven't gotten to exercise, and it's strange to just before bed...but I think I'm going to do that while the clothes dry (had to wash some coats for my sister and her daughter since they don't have winter coats with them).

    Poor daffodils! I walked home from work today and was in awe at the daffodils they have planted at the arboretum in the park. I've been watching them bloom here and there, but now the mass plantings are all in bloom, and it's glorious!

Hope you get some more blooms once that snow melts away! emoticon

Daffodils and Evergreens

Monday, April 14, 2014

Yesterday, when I walked the dogs, I saw a kingfisher- and boy did he protest us being at "his" pond! That evening my husband and I went for a two mile walk along the road, and when we came back we had one daffodil open for the first time this year. Today we had several. :) So cheerful.
You can see our basset hound's tail and lead in the picture too...haha.
Hubby and I planted some blue spruce today, from the Arbor Day Foundation.

I'm enjoying trying the Paleo way of eating, that I saw in my FIRST magazine for this month. I feel more energetic and alert, and only feel the need to eat 3 meals and maybe a snack. I think this is working well for my blood sugar too (I'm not diabetic, but know what it feels like to have my blood sugar out of whack). It's good to be exercising regularly too.

    I love daffodils, just brings a smile to my face, so I've been enjoying seeing the pop up in different places as I walk around. emoticon

Spark Tracker survives

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Can you believe my Spark Tracker went through the wash, on regular cycle, with a full load of laundry, and through the dryer, and is doing fine? Crazy

Spark Tracker

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I wear it regularly, and it's kind of neat to see how many steps I've taken, but it is awfully annoying that you can't write down what exercise you did when you do a work out. It will record that amount of time for you, saying how many calories you burned, when it doesn't even know what you did. So if you don't mind having it do that (for instance, it may say I burned 94 calories when I did high intensity aerobics for 32 minutes), then no big deal. I'm trying not to let it matter to me. But I am bugged.

    Gee I don't have one, still use my old pedometer, does sound funny though, maybe on tracker team they would know how to fix.
Take care now emoticon

Flat on my back yesterday

Friday, January 10, 2014

So my husband and I went to walk the dogs yesterday, and we are walking through the six inches of new snow when I suddenly encounter pure ice under that snow. Both feet went out from under me and down I went on my back. I remember hitting at the part that is just under your neck, second, where your spine kinda "sticks out" in that area, and then my head, but my head is fine. I've been sore in spots. Definitely out of alignment in spots. I have had things moving here and there and I think I'm out of any pain now, so that's good, just some sore areas yet. I did help walk the dogs today, and the spark activity tracker knew it was a 22 minute walk I took with the dogs- I just bet I burned more than the 70 calories they put down for me, what with all the deeper textured snow I went through, but anyhoo, I used some things on my hiking boots that gave me traction this time. I think that my back appreciated the exercise, so that's good. I'm not going to push it any further today. Hopefully I'll be able to exercise more tomorrow.
