It felt wonderful to rest. The day itself was good, with the exception of doing a favor for another instructor. Her student wanted to stay to work but the student had the agenda of getting me to sit next to her and focus on her. It is not that kind of class. I am not upset with the instructor but a bit annoyed with a student who is manipulative, doesn't heed answers when she asks questions, and pouts when she doesn't get her way. So much for helping s...

Ugh. I talked to my chiropractor and my massage therapist and in addition to treating it with massage, the recommendation to ice(which I was doing) and use a brace for it. So far,it is much better. Due to this, I skipped Ballet barre(didn't think I could do the floorwork or the arm balances) and missed Zumba due to selling tickets to the basketball game. <BR> <BR> I have been progressing on my puttering so that is a good thing. <B...

I even fit in 20 minutes on the elliptical. Woot woot! Time to build back up on that. <BR> <BR> The rest of the day consisted of a few errands and a chiropractor appointment. The temperature cooled down quite a bit so I enjoyed being home and cuddling with the pets. Rain is on tap for tonight so it is fun to be in! <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> Mon, 28 Dec 2015 20:22:19 EST End of the 4 day weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6053669 AAh, we went back to Zumba class...we were all tired!

Steve had his eye on a lighthouse fountain for us but there were none left. They expect more in the spring. <BR> <BR> Did a bit of walking around, came home to watch Dr. Who and a few British sitcoms and I puttered and wrote thank you notes. <BR> <BR> Happy for my little accomplishments today! And the lack of rain, pictures tomorrow! <em>30</em> Sat, 26 Dec 2015 21:52:23 EST Merry Christmas(pictures) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6052646 It was warm, foggy, and thunderstormy with tropical downpours. Have to love this weird weather. <BR> <BR> It was a pleasant day...relaxed morning, with a short walk and coffee and the paper. A late breakfast at the diner was lovely. <BR> <BR> Then we had a walk at the state park and came home to puttering and cleaning and napping. A lovely day! <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/f75245ed-0157-40bd-adb4-2d27b08a9c92.jpg"> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/3e2...

I will take a picture of it tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Our afternoon consisted of a nap, some Dr. Who, A Christmas Story, and a lovely dinner for two. We also purchased ...
