Rain seems to be clearing up for now??

Friday, October 22, 2010

I did a lot of housework this morning while the weather decided it might stop raining for a while. I was able to take Phred on a 27 min. walk at 3pm. and it felt really good to be outside, in the fresh air. After being housebound for the last couple of weeks, except for going to my aunts funeral 2 weeks ago, it was wonderful to walk in the cool breeze. Phred enjoyed it very much too.
DH is working late tonight and I am waiting for "Medium" at 8pm. I hope, haven't checked in the paper, hope no specials are on. I really love that show.
Going to talk to my sister tomorrow. Saw something she posted on FB that sort of shook me up. Don't want to say here until I know for sure. Hope it was just a mistake or something.
You all have a nice evening.

Rain again

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Got up to rain again so couldn't take Phred out for a walk. Maybe tomorrow it won't rain. I did 1 exercise dvd, LS:Bootcamp 3 miles and resistance band workouts in 45 min. along with the 10 min. stomach workout at the end. I also did an old VHS tape of Denise Austin's for 28 min. that is a full body workout but non aerobic.

Jeff only worked half day today and works tomorrow too.

Irene and Debbie stopped by the house after stopping by the post office for me to buy me a book of stamps. What a nice friend. I mentioned that I didn't want to go out in the rain and get some so she volunteered. I paid her $10 which she said was too much but I figured the rest was for her time and kindness. She and Debbie came to see the new W/D and refrigerator. I also showed them the plans for the house redo and gave Debbie 2 pair of pants that I picked up cheaply but knew were too small for me. They fit her find and she could use them. She has been out of work for a while and just got picked up at Costco full time through the holidays and they said they were going hire permanently. She need a few more pair of pants for the job.

Doing my exercises but not keeping to my calorie count down. I need to really start doing that again but first things first. Get back into the exercise thing and then cut the calories is easier for me then just jumping back into everything at once. Also have been invited to bowl with my daughters best friend from Jr. and High School sometime on Sat. Will wait to see if it happens but should be fun. I haven't seen Sarah in a while. Samra and her were always together.

    I'm struggling with my calories too. Some days its good then I have a day (usually 2 or 3 times a week) when I just blow it all up.
We had rain yesteray too. A cold rain like winter, not the nice rains of summer. Hopefully today will be better for you and poor Phred can get a good walk.

    Good Luck Buddy! My calorie count is OK, but I struggle with salt.

    Too bad that it is still raining! Poor Phred! Debbie DOES sound like a good friend. Know that she is saying the same thing about you for tipping her and giving her 2 new pair of pants! Hang in there........... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Glad to be feeling better and somewhat back to normal

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I am sorry tired of being sick. Seems like I wasn't feeling well most of September and then the beginning of October too. I went to the doctor a week ago Monday and was put on antibiotics. At that time I was running a temperature anywhere from 96.8 to 102 degrees and I had no voice. Jeff went to the doctor's today and got on medicine too.
I did a short LS exercise dvd on Monday for 3 miles, did the marketing yesterday and was very tired out. Did a LS dvd today along with an old Denise Austin VHS that runs for 28 min. for a full body non aerobic workout. Felt pretty good but not too tired out.
May walk Phred tomorrow morning with or without Irene. Poor boy has only been out a few times with my son Frank. In fact my husband got him to take him out this evening w/o me even having to mention it. I think the rain has stopped for a few days and I know we needed the rain but enough already.
Hope everyone is doing good tonight.

    It's been a rough cold, flu, and allergy season already and we're not even through autumn yet! Hope you continue to improve. I hope too that since you've been getting it over with you won't have any other illnesses "plaguing" you this year.

    Glad you are feeling better. I also had some problems after my fall last week my ribs still hurt and have pain while breathing hard. Hopefully it will get better with time but its putting a dent in my fitness routine.

Hope you feel better after all this we'll pray for you.

Have a great weekend.

    I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Being sick like that for long periods of time can drain us so much emotionally and mentally as well as the physical aspects. Take care of yourself and build yourself back up again without rushing. Listen to your body. Missed hearing from you lately.

    I know what you mean, I have been struggling with being sick and on prednisone for a month. I just got off the prednisone over the weekend. They said on the news tonight that it hasn't rained here since September 25, 2010. That it will start raining on the weekend. I thought, oh no, I'm feeling better now, it just ain't fair.


I'm glad you're feeling a little better.

Bowers Museum Part 2 pictures

Tuesday, October 05, 2010







This is sort of interesting since this was the last bear trap used in Orange County, CA to catch the last bear that lived here. How sad is that?






These last 3 pics are what greet you as you enter or leave the building. My son took over 150 pics. I took all the bad ones out and only show a small portion in this and part 1 blog on the museum. We still did not make it to the 2nd floor of Bower's.

Really sick with what my hubby brought home from work.

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

I started to get this, whatever it is on Sunday and during the night woke up feeling so bad I couldn't swallow, with my throat just buring up. I took my temp and it was over 101 degrees. So I haven't exercised in the last 2 days, didn't go visit my sister and I am just hoping I am well enough to go to my Aunt Janet's funeral on Friday morning.
I also hope it stops raining by Friday. I know we need the rain but my car doesn't do well in rainy weather so I might not be able to drive up there if there is rain. Sucks either way. I think I am going to post some more pictures from the museum as a part 2.
Hope all my Sparks friend are staying well.
