Friday, quick catch up

Friday, August 23, 2013

Well, Sunday is my hubby's birthday and he's taken today off, so we had a leisurely start, and have been getting a few things done around the place. But I'm pretty sure we'll be heading out for a ridetomorrow or the next day . . . he needs to get away. And so do I.

Yesterday's thunder & lightning storm was a real rocker! Had a number of new fires which the fire & forest department took care of quickly. We got about half an inch of rain which really helped. However there have been several more 'sleepers' fires popping up today -- where lightning ignited but the fire just smoldered until conditions were right . . . then spring to life. There's a good sized one going right now between us and the Labrador fire (which has been going for weeks, but is pretty much staying within the perimeter lines).

I'm doing good, staying on my plan. Feeling better with each new day. The trip to the chiropractor did wonders. Now I'm able to start working on stretching out the tight muscles that were constricted. It sure feels good to feel good!

So, what you are working on right now? Do you have specific goals you're focusing on? What are they, and how are you feeling about your progress?

If you could project yourself to one year from today, what advice would you have for yourself today?

Let's do this!

    Wow...those fires are SO scary! I hope you have the best day ever on your hubby's birthday. Sometimes days of doing nothing but being with each other are the BEST for the hubs and I! But we always manage to mark birthdays...they are just too special to forget! emoticon

    Fire is scary, never know where it will lead. I hope you can get a good couple of days of riding in without being diverted by road closure due to fire.

    Way to go, Girl! Sounds like you're really in the groove again and you're feeling it!

I'm glad to hear that you finally got some rain. I'm pretty exhausted from all this rain dancing I've been doing for you! At last I got the night off! lol

I hope you get some nice weather tomorrow so you can all go for a ride!

Have a great weekend! emoticon
