Hubby started it last night. I also did the strip beside the garage and the front yard. We are looking good for the weekend. With all the rain we have been getting the grass is growing and staying green. <BR> <BR> After Hubby went to the hospital, I did some weeding. Yard pickup is early Saturday morning and I wanted to fill the containers with all those weeds. Our tomatoes are finally starting to ripen and they are really tast... Fri, 22 Aug 2014 20:11:35 EST Day 30 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5764497 I got up at 7 this morning and went for a walk with a few jogging intervals. After breakfast, Hubby took me to Leamington so they could check my TB test. It is good. From there, we went to the city to check on his sister. She was sleeping. We left for a few minutes while the technician did an x-ray. We stopped for lunch before heading home to the blood donor clinic. I was a bit late for my appointment but they still took my blood. <em>211</em> They were quite busy today. Home and I ... Thu, 21 Aug 2014 20:36:37 EST Day 29 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5763866 This morning I walked downtown for a massage. It was great. Afterward, I met my friend for lunch and then we went to see my health coach. She has agreed to coach both of us for an hour Wed. afternoons starting next week. I am looking forward to getting back to the regular workouts. <BR> <BR> Exercise <em>248</em> Wed, 20 Aug 2014 21:44:13 EST Day 28 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5763193 I walked downtown to get my hair cut this morning. After lunch we went to the hospital for my second TB test as part of the procedure to become a volunteer with Hospice. My husband went for an interview to become a volunteer at the hospital. We had a nice motorcycle ride on our way home. <BR> <BR> After supper, just as Hubby was preparing to go to the city to see his sister, it started to rain and it was NOT a gentle rain. It really came down. He changed his plans since he was planning ... Tue, 19 Aug 2014 22:03:03 EST Day 27 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762443 It pays to rest when it is needed. Today I had lots of energy after taking it easier on Sunday. I got some weeding done and some plants dug up. The kitchen floor was scrubbed and the living room vacuumed. I even made a blueberry pie as requested by Hubby. (He said it was good too.) <BR> <BR> Exercise <em>248</em> <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Mon, 18 Aug 2014 21:36:27 EST Day 26 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761688 Today was a very lazy day. I woke up with a headache which gave me an excuse to pamper myself and rest most of the day. Hubby went to see his sister this afternoon and I had a nap. She is now in a regular room and doing better. We will see what tomorrow brings. <BR> <BR> 10 minutes is all I managed today to keep my 'streak' going. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Sun, 17 Aug 2014 21:46:31 EST Day 25 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761054 Saturday - Daughter left to return home. She was golfing at 1. We met friends for breakfast and then Hubby took me for a motorcycle ride. <BR> <BR> Tonight we went to the free concert at King's Navy Yard Park in Amherstburg. It was a five-piece brass band playing a variety of music. It was a lovely evening - not hot with a nice breeze to keep away any insects who might be tempted to join the festivities. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/4/l1435857568.jpg"> <B... Sat, 16 Aug 2014 21:15:48 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5760567 Day 24 was a good day. The weather is still feeling fall-like but it is comfortable for sleeping. This morning daughter and I took the 3 dogs and went for a nice walk. Early this afternoon daughter and Hubby went to visit his sister. She did not get transferred to a regular room yet. She is still in ICU. He said she was much the same as yesterday. She did not remember our visit but she still knows who he is. <BR> <BR> When they were gone I went to get some blueberries. While I was ou... Fri, 15 Aug 2014 22:59:11 EST Day 23 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759883 I had a dentist appointment at 9 this morning for my regular check-up and cleaning. All is well. I don't have to go back until May 2015. <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> From there we went out for breakfast and then to the hospital. We arrived when rounds were taking place so we had to wait for a few minutes. Donna is doing better. She was happy to see us but she didn't remember that Hubby was there yesterday. The nurse told us that they expect to transfer her out of ICU to a regular room to... Thu, 14 Aug 2014 21:16:36 EST Day 22 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759146 It is not raining today but it is cooler than we are used to for summertime. I finally got to walk to the library this afternoon and then on for my eye test. He told me I have the beginning of a cataract in my left eye. He said that it is not concerning and won't be for a long time. I came home and took a nap before making supper. <BR> <BR> exercise <em>248</em> <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Wed, 13 Aug 2014 19:18:47 EST Day 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5758544 One thing about 'streaking' is that I don't have to come up with a title for my blogs. It is ready-made with the next number. <em>211</em> <BR> <BR> I had lunch with my girlfriend today. Hubby went to the hospital again, this time in the van because of the rain. His sister is doing better. She was sitting in a chair today and talking a bit although he says he can't understand what she is saying. He did some errands while he was in the city. <BR> <BR> The weather seemed to be cleari... Tue, 12 Aug 2014 21:57:55 EST Day 20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757797 It has been raining most of the day. Right now it is coming down quite hard. I hope we don't get water in the basement. <BR> <BR> This morning was grocery shopping. Since we were away last week, the fridge was quite bare. Hubby went into the city to see his sister. She was still unconscious when he was there but apparently they had her up later in the day. He was traveling on his motorcycle so he got a bit wet on his way home. <BR> <BR> Ten minutes of exercise <em>248</em> <BR> <...

It will be easier to keep track again. It was good to get away for a few days. Unfortunately, we had to come back a bit earlier than we had planned. On Friday, we got word that Hubby's older sister was in the hospital and not doing well. We left Sat. morning about 8 to make the long drive home. We got here around 10 p.m. Hubby is at the hospital right now checking to see how she is and visiting with her two children who also came. Her son ... Sun, 10 Aug 2014 15:34:31 EST 14, 15 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5754684 Our vacation is going well. We arrived at my nephew's Tuesday afternoon. My sister is looking good. Two of nephew's kids are in Newfoundland with their other grandparents. The oldest boy who is 13 and the two youngest who are 1 1/2 and 3 are here. This is a very active house. <BR> <BR> Last night after supper, we three women went for a nice walk. That was especially good for me after sitting in the car all day. <BR> <BR> This morning we drove into Ottawa to visit my uncle and aunt. ... Wed, 6 Aug 2014 21:38:29 EST 13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5753210 We are on vacation now. I will continue to make sure I get a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise every day. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Mon, 4 Aug 2014 21:33:16 EST 11, 12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5752263 I didn't get around to posting a blog on Saturday. It rained quite a lot for much of the day. Our daughter and son-in-law had a tee off time sometime after 1 in the States. She messaged me that they were late arriving. They were stuck on the Ambassador Bridge longer than they planned. By the time they actually golfed, the weather was getting better. This afternoon they are at the Detroit Tigers ballgame. I don't remember what we did for my 40th birthday but I have a feeling it was spen... Sun, 3 Aug 2014 13:07:21 EST Ten http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5751325 I had another easy day. We met friends for breakfast and then came home to do some of those daily type of chores. This afternoon I had a visit with my girlfriend while her husband figured out why I was having so much trouble with our weed-wacker (we were using the wrong type of 'string'). <BR> <BR> We will have our grand-dog for the weekend while our daughter and son-in-law have a weekend away to celebrate his 40th birthday. Monday is a holiday here in Ontario. We are planning to leave... Fri, 1 Aug 2014 21:24:23 EST Nine http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5750664 We went for a motorcycle ride this morning. My back is getting better. This afternoon I had a nice nap while Hubby went for a massage. Tomorrow I should be ready for whatever comes next. I have gardening I want/need to do. I will be extremely careful. We are planning to go away for a few days next week. I want to be tip-top for that. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 21:45:14 EST Eight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5749967 Today was not the best day I have had recently. I was working in the garden and somehow I did too much and now have a sore back. I had a massage this afternoon. That helped some but I have to be careful how I get up after sitting for any length of time. <BR> <BR> Because of this, my husband encouraged me to drive when normally I would walk - to get my massage and to meet my friend for coffee after supper. Just yesterday I was lamenting that I sometimes have trouble meeting my 10,000 steps... Wed, 30 Jul 2014 22:07:18 EST Seven http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5749213 I am not quite up to 10,000 daily steps but I have been getting a minimum 5000 lately. Some days I am happy to see the number go past 10,000 but so far it is not EVERY day. <BR> <BR> Today, as part of my application to become a volunteer with Hospice, I went for a TB test. I go back on Thursday for them to check it and then in August there will be a second test. I have the references and police check completed so it is time to make the appointment for the second interview. Everything i... Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:00:02 EST Six http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748615 I am still on track. I planned to log more steps after supper. I walked to the library so I met part of my goal but Hubby followed with the truck and wanted me to drive home with him so I missed out on my walk home. Getting that first part was good, however, because I know I would have waited until tomorrow if I didn't have this streak started. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 23:29:55 EST Five http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747713 This afternoon while Hubby was at a car show, I went for a 3-mile walk. He was home when I got back and told me my face was red. It was warmer than I expected when I left the house. It is good I went when I did because a bit later we had quite a thunder storm. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Sun, 27 Jul 2014 20:02:38 EST #4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747211 This afternoon I walked to the library to return a movie. From there I decided to walk around the block - well one of them. It was a nice walk and it was more than 10 minutes. The streak is continuing. <em>521</em> <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:36:04 EST Day 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746637 All is well. Today I worked in my garden. Something is 'attacking' my irises. I dug them all up. I hope I can salvage some but quite a few are gone. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> <BR> <BR> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:02:04 EST Day Two http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745606 <em>248</em> I got up and went for a walk. I do much better when I go for a walk first thing. Then I know it is done and if the day happens to get hot, I know I have already walked. Today was 40 minutes. <BR> <BR> <em>88</em> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:31:59 EST Day One http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745215 I joined SparkGuy's 10 Minute Fitness Club this morning. Since I have not been working with my health coach, I have been slipping back. I need a streak to keep me going so today is Day One. I walked and ran on the treadmill for 22 minutes. <BR> <BR> Day One <em>248</em> Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:08:51 EST Nice Thought http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732959 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/2/l425781712.jpg"> <BR> <BR> "Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?" - L.M.
