Saturday was a very nice day at our house.


Saturday, March 09, 2013

This morning DH decided he needed to go back to bed. I wanted to do some exercise. I went down to my little gym and did ST videos with Coach Nicole.
I loved getting the ST in. I guess that is my solution. Do it first. I was hoping someone would ask me to walk on the rail trail.

SOMEONE did!!

My DH wanted to try to take a long walk. I was there with him in a heartbeat. We both had our cell phones. I walk faster and he walked till he felt he must turn back. I walked to the ONE mile marker and walked back I just about caught up with him in the car park. He had walked a MILE and a Half and he was delighted.

We stopped to see friends we had not seen for a while and we drank tea and chatted for a long time. They wanted to go to a movie but I still had lots to do. They eat out but I am not eating out much and I like it that way.

I fixed DH and my dinner and I decided he had no scones in the freezer so I took out the recipes I was about to bake along with roasting some almonds and walnuts and the phone rang. It was our DIL in Las Vegas we talked for a very long time and eventually she said why are we talking this way we can Skype. I had not done it in a very long time. Our 10 year old DGD talked me through it and I let her remind me of every step.
As soon as I looked I did remember but she was so loving teaching me and since I have not seen her in three years I just could not wait to see how she had grown.
She told me about her Tae Kwon Do and she stood up and showed me her kicks. She kicked towards the camera and I yelled "YOU GOT ME" as she kicked she loved that game.

DH came down and announced he had switched off the oven and put the salmon loaf in the Fridge . It was for tomorrow anyway.
Tomorrow my day is planned. I must bake DH his scones and have a big baking day.

My day was another Super surprise but I have not had time to get back to my friends Pat in Maine. Thanks to all of you for responding to my
Blois I appreciate knowing you all. Spark Friends.

    Pat, every time I put Skype on my computer it messes with the computer. A friend of mine in Ohio wanted me to do it. I decided not to because of the mess up, I liked messenger and seeing people that way. Guess they don't have that any more. HUGS, Terry

    Another great day in Augusta!!!! I can't believe DH walked over a mile. He is really doing so good. What fun that you got to skype. Technology is wonderful!
Have fun making your scones today. That's something I've never made and should give it a try one of these days.

Wishing a sunny day for you and DH.

    You did have a good day!! I've found if I don't do exercise in morning it just won't get done! The longer the day goes, the less motivated I am to exercise. I get involved in other things. Sounds like you had a great walk, too!! Good for you! Now, today you can cook and bake!!!

    We used Skype a lot to keep in touch with Alex's family....
Then they went to Apple IPad....
So we had to get one as well here to do FACETIME ( this is the same as Skype but you cannot mix Skype and Facetime )

We love seeing them face to face....last time we went to my hometown...we called Alex's daughter on the IPAd and all my family saw her and she met all my family.....nice.... emoticon
