Got My Warm Weather Wish

Saturday, May 29, 2010

I have to admit I have been complaining because the weather has been so sucky these last few weeks. Wine Wine Wine about it not being warm/hot yet. Well yesterday it was 68 and today it was 90 outside. Wow what a difference a day makes. LOL

Too warm to walk Phred this morning so going to take him after dinner. I will have to start getting up at 7:30am, to get in his walks b/4 it too hot during the day. Did make it to the gym for a good upper body workout and cardio today. Already signed up for kayaking on the 6th and 12th of June. I will have to slather sunscreen on me so I don't burn. Took some updated photos today but haven't loaded them on my LT yet. I will do that tonight and post them tomorrow.

Went to the market to pick up salad, blue cheese dressing for the guys, milk and steak for dinner tonight. Jory is with us for the weekend. I will be BBQing in just a few mins.
and after dinner will take the Phredster out for a walk. Still very warm outside.
Summer is finally here but believe it or not there is snow in our local mountains.

    Sounds like you have some great fitness activities scheduled - good for you. The weather has been very variable here too - very cool one day and a scorcher the next. Don't know what clothes to put on in the morning. Dinner sounds yum and enjoy the great weather.

Bad start for the holiday weekend in my neighborhood

Friday, May 28, 2010

Started the day normally, breakfast, reading paper and walking Phred. After I got back from walking/jogging Phred I felt real hot and sweaty. I had opened all the windows this morning when the clouds were still out but by the time I got back it had warmed up a lot and the sun was shinning. So turned on the AC and kicked back with some water to catch a little bit of the 11am news b/4 I was going to start cleaning the house.

Big sig alert, 91 Fwy closed in both directions due to gas tank truck explosion. It was pretty bad and you could see the black smoke in the air looking in that direction. We are only about 8 miles from the accident, I live just a couple of blocks away from the 91 fwy.

Did all the household chores, bathrooms, dusting, vacuuming and mopping but clean up things around the house. Moved the living room furniture and vacuumed behind and each piece real good. Got a really good workout but didn't make it to the gym. Maybe tomorrow.

Tomorrow I was suppose to go with my sister Doreen and Aunt Roseanne to visit my sick Aunt Janet. Just got a call from my sister that it has been canceled at least for the moment. Could change in a bit.
I guess my Aunt Roseanne got a call from her sister Janet (on site here as Blessed1953)
saying she wouldn't be up for visitors and to wait a few weeks. Only problem is from what I understand from my other sister Linda who talked to Janet's husband Louie this past Sunday, I am not sure she has that long. I know when my ex was sick he stopped taking calls and not wanting visitors about 6 months ago. So I don't know what is going on but for now the trip is canceled.

Took Phred out for his evening walk and it had once again cooled off. Had to move fast to keep warm. LOL What a day, hope tomorrows better. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you had a productive day and you are getting some free time tomorrow. Maybe then could get your exercise in then. Enjoy your weekend and hope your aunt Janet feels better - sometimes when I am not feeling well I don't want visitors either.

Tired of the clouds.

Thursday, May 27, 2010

This morning it was very cloudy but sort of warm. Very strange weather, what the hell is going on. It was snowing earlier in the week up in the local mountains, Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead. Manmouth still has snow so they could keep the slops opened if they wanted to. Summer/Bikini skiing use to be so much fun when I was in my youth.

Went to the market today. Oh what fun that is. Better than Costco. Did very well with my coupons around $60 off the bill. The produce guy, who I have known for years told me I was looking good and asked how much weight I had lost. He was impressed.

Walked Phred 2 times and did a 5 miles Leslie Sansone dvd. Really want to get to the gym but the husband called to say his AC wasn't working. I was why do you have your AC on when it is cool outside. So he was going to have me follow him to the AC repair place. So after I get home with Phred I have lunch and wait. He comes in and the next thing I know he is having Frank follow him. Screwed up me going to the gym. My gym is always crowded but the best time is bwt 10am - 1pm to show up, otherwise you can't get any cardio machines and have to wait forever to use the weight machines. Haven't gotten in there since last week but I do work out at home if I don't get over there.

Talked to my friend Irene for a little while and we were going to try to go bowling but that fell through too. No rain No rain. emoticon

  


Dishwasher Pt.2

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Ok the Maytag guy came on Monday to check the dishwasher. My husband had already done everything, but we were at a lost as to why it wasn't cleaning anymore. Tan the Maytag man checked everything out and said my hubby had done a great job and so had I on keeping the dishwasher clean in a hard water area. After talking to him he suggested had I changed dishwater detergent. No I hadn't but I had opened a new box just about the time the problem started. He said to go buy another box. I went to the store but made sure I got the Cascade in the old design box rather than this new lime green fresh scent style. Guess what I ran the dishwasher today and everything came out pretty good and I think after a few times everything will be back to normal.

I called Cascade to file a complaint and the lady was real nice. I gave her the code for the box I had and I got the feeling that there had been other complaints only from her tone and when I gave her the code. She asked if both said they had Dawn in them, and they both did.
She was going the let corporate know and said maybe someone would get back to me. I also will get a coupon in the mail for a free box and some extra coupon cents off. When I asked her if she wanted me to keep the box or mail it back to them. She says "No, they said they don't need it". This is sort of what made me think that there had been other problems with this batch.

Did my normal routine today of walking Phred in AM/PM and almost finished up my topiary's.
One more to go. I really cut them back short because they have gotten so thick this winter with all the rain. This time I will take pictures but a lot of the green has been cut off but one will still be able to tell what they are.

Costco day.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I go to Costco about every 6 - 8 weeks, just about the time we run out of toilet paper and kleenix. I picked up some kiwi, salmon and trout along with my dark chocolate favorite Acai.
Came home and took Phred for a good 40 min. walk except I am starting to jog a little so cut this walk by about 7 mins. by doing that.
Talk to my daughter Samra tonight. She got the package of goodies I sent her. She loves Polly's Pies (here in CA0 and you can buy fresh breads, cookies, jams and they have the best oatmeal. So I picked her up some stuff and sent in to her along with some old photos from her childhood, like her first bath as a wee baby. Her friends got a kick out of them and so did she. I had doubles of these and figured she needed to have her own copies. Not going to be online for much longer tonight going to watch "TBL' in the bedroom, husband watches NCIS out here. At least with Lost no longer on I won't be missing the last half hour anymore (no we don't have cable, satellite or a DVR) so I would watch Lost at 9pm and switch back to TBL at commercials. I have missed so many shows now since I use my VHS anymore to tape shows. Oh well. Lets see what tomorrow will bring.
