Got up early.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I got up at 6:30am this morning in order to walk Phred while it was still somewhat cool outside. We left the house at 7:02 and the walk was 3.33 miles and took 58 min. We did a great time! I also did a LS indoor walking dvd for 5 miles, did some cleaning and took Phred for a shorter walk this evening.

Still pretty warm outside but a tropical storm has made its way up from Mexico, so it a lot cooler now than it was at this time last night. We even have a nice breeze. Will it rain?? ABC's Dallas Raines, did not think so, but who believes the weather men anymore.

Talked to Irene tonight just to see when she has some days off and to tell about a possible job for Debbie during Xmas season. She is off for four days Friday - Monday so most likely we will get together to do something during that time period.

Next week I may go down towards San Diego and visit at my sister's home before her and Fred lose it. She has been unemployed for over 2 yrs., they lost one house already. I feel so bad for her and I keep hoping something comes up for her. I also told her about a job she may qualify for here in OC in Irvine. This bank is hiring a lot of people and she has worked in the banking industry for years and years. We can only hope that something comes her way b/4 her unemployment runs out next month. Things are still very bad here for people looking for jobs.

Good night, getting ready to watch "TBL" at 8pm

    Sad about your sister, Teri.....Hope they find something soon. The storm would be refreshing for you, if it hit you! Probably release all that heat and humidity. Sounds like you had a great walk with Phred! emoticon

Another Hot Day in the Southland.

Monday, September 27, 2010

Well, it was 102 degrees today and it is currently at 7:30pm 95 degrees. It was hotter at the Long Beach than here today, they were at 109, right at the beach. Go figure that out. Jeff worked in Newport Beach on the docks today and just about died. Came home and crashed on the couch for about 1 1/2 hours. I walked Phred about 6:3pm and it was still 95 degrees.
I did a lot of housework today for 2 1/2 hours straight, did my 30 twister workout and Phreds walk. Off to take a shower and waiting for "House" to come on at 8pm.
Ya all have a nice night. My Cali friends keep cool and drink lost of H2O.

    It's 70 here right now, at 11:30 pm. But, our heat has just broke. I enjoyed the heat, for I am so cold natured I'm sure I'm going to be a popsicle any day, during the winter. I mean I'm cold to the point I don't wear shorts, I wear jackets all summer, keep a coat in the car to take in ac'd restaurants, and still feel cold. But, actually I was pretty comfortable today.
Keep your cool!

Really hot today!

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Currently it is 8pm and 90 degrees and we are looking at 101 Monday & 95 on Tuesday. They call this "Indian" summer. Where was our summer during the summer. Now we get hot weather, so strange. Yes, it is. La Nina, they say instead of El Nino.
Poor husband is working tomorrow at Newport Beach, he is an IBEW electrician and his company did all the electrical for the yatch show. He will suffer being in the heat all day long on the docks, pulling heavy cable and the sun reflecting off the water. He will be very tired and hot when he gets home tomorrow. Oh yeah forgot crouchy too.
Did the normal Sunday routine, marketing but early b/4 10am, never walked Phred today, just too hot. Will have to get early early tomorrow if we are gonna beat the heat. Read the Sunday paper, did LS dvd 4 fast miles plus my twister machine for 30 min.
Jeff went over to our friend George's, the architech, and came home with 5 plans to the redo to choose from. We all picked the same one and I think the new kitchen, living, laundry area and extended bathroom with be marvelous. I will be posting the b/4 pics soon and then after we are done, so you all can see what our hard work has done to the house.

Looks like you had a good Sunday. Did good with your exercise routine too.
I went to the gym today and got about 1hour and 20 minutes of cardio in. Also did some strength training and some swimming.
I topped it off with going in the Jacuzzi for about 15 minutes.
It felt great !!
Good luck with the home improvement work.Hope it turns out great.

Have a great week !

Just wanted to check it

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Today was OK went with Jeff over to Loews, then with Frank to our local museum in Santa Ana call "Bowers". Got to see and hear a lecture on Korea, which was really interesting. They gave each person a choice of books to take so Frank got part 1 which was about their art history and I got the part 2 on their sciene and tectnology. We also got to sample Korean food for free and the best part was we got in free today because the Smithsonian was paying. They have a special every year all around the country where our government pays for 2 people to attend the museum of their choice. I will post some pictures tomorrow because I am off to bed in just a few mins.

Half of the house got new windows today.

Friday, September 24, 2010

The new windows for the back side of the house were installed today. I took Phred out for a walk and then over to the groomers for the day. They said he could stay until just after 4pm. Unfortunately the guys were not quit done with the last part of the installation but Phred only bark a little bit.

Since Irene had to stay late this morning at her ROP math class I took Frank with bowling since his college class got canceled. We had a good time but took me a couple of games to get into the swing of things. All my games were over 100 but the last three were 126, 139 & 159, we played a total of 6 games. If Frank could ever learn to control his curve he would be deadly. The weather was 94 degrees today and we had to to turn off the house A/C, so that is why Frank and I got out to somewhere with A/C.

Other than that just another day in paradise , as they say. If only there were not so many people, it would be paradise. emoticon
