White outs... but not here

Friday, October 25, 2013

It looks like we will have a white Halloween this year. Yuck! I like snowshoeing and skiing, but the stuff that is falling out of the sky today is no good for those. It is just cold, wet, miserable almost snow. A little ways from me they have white out conditions. I am thinking the ski slopes and snow plows will do good business this year.

I walked Cooper over 6 miles this morning... while it was sunny. Took him out for 1.5 miles this afternoon, and I am going to try and get another mile out of him this evening, if the hail ever stops. It was falling sideways earlier. I also did lunges and some yoga today to round out my fitness. I managed to get some cleaning in, visited with some friends, and read a couple books. I felt like I accomplished stuff today, unlike yesterday.

Tomorrow I will go to my parents' house and make lunch with mom. Dad won't be there, as he is playing piano at a competition. (He is an accompanist.) And on Tuesday I am driving mom to the wound clinic again.

I am glad the worst of the snow is avoiding where I live for now. It will come, but not today. emoticon

    I had to check the long term forecast for MA. I was afraid we were going to get snow soon. Fortunately clear skies are in the forecast for now. It isn't unusual for us to get snow in October, but I sure don't want it. November through March is long enough. No need to extend the season.

    emoticon on the walking !!! WOOHOOOO !! Cooper is just WAY TO CUTE and such a GOOD BOY to get in his exercise. I imagine the vet is VERY HAPPY with his physical shape !! Hmmm how CAN I get IZZY TO WALK? (MEOWER). LOL Dope on a rope does NOT work. HAHAHAHA !! and her legs are almost dwaft ones,,, very , very tiny and SHORT !! So she's able to SLIP OUT of a harness. GRRRRR !! makes going thru airports VERY SCARY when they have me take her out of her carrier !! I have to REALLY WRAP HER UP so she does NOT GET AWAY during this !! she HAS SLIPPED out of the harness where I was living b4,,, when I "THOUGHT" It would be a GOOD idea to take the little monkey (Well CAT ) out for a walk,,,, but than I LOST HER !!!! It took quite a bit to get her BACK !! So that's CLEARLY A NO NO !!! I love my little gal to MUCH FOR THAT !!!

    OH MY Chandra,,,, I am so sorry to INFORM you ,,,, and PLZ DO NOT be OFFENDED, but USING SWEAR WORDS IS NOT Acceptable !! PERIOD, END of story,,,, so if you write "THAT WORD" again,,, we'll have to pass it on.


    Hey, I LIVE IN MAINE,, and we SURELY KNOW this stuff !! It's already fallen up north, but THANKFULLY I live on the coast,, and it'll take it to around Nov,, turkey day ish,,, b4 we see a REAL Storm. Some SMALL Stuff b4 then yeah, but NOT a REAL one. Often times on turkey day (Which I DO NOT celebrate,,,,, for "the day" of it being a "holiday" that is,, though I WILL have a few friends,,, small bit of fam over on Nov 9th cos I LOVE turkey !) it'll cancel MANY plans up here. THANKFULLY I NEED NOT WORRY !! PHEW !!

    Way to stay motivated despite the weather! I find it harder when it snows to get moving, too. Hang in there and I hope for healing for your mom (wound clinic).
