Things to do

I had a short walk this morning, 20 minutes of weeding and trimming, then 15 minutes on the bike before I had to shower and head out to visit with my elderly friend. She is 88 and such a treat to spend time with. I love listening to her stori... Read more
Hot walk
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      6 comments

I got up to 74 degrees this morning in FL - yuck! I made myself go for a walk for 25 minutes - good side - I walk MUCH faster here in the flatland - bad side - you guessed it - it was too hot! I came in and got a drink of water and then we... Read more
Hurry Up and Wait
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      4 comments

I'm ready - just waiting on RB to finish all the stuff he needs to do by himself to close up the cabin. If I try to help it takes longer - he just has to do it his way. Much easier on me and I get to do my blog before we leave for that long dr... Read more
Cleaning up to leave
Monday, September 06, 2010      3 comments

I had a really good walk this morning - further still but not all the way to the cross street I'm looking for yet. By the time I got back I had walked for 75 minutes, completed 8852 steps and felt like I had a good workout because of all the up... Read more
61 degrees in the house!!!!!!!!!!
Sunday, September 05, 2010      4 comments

OK, so we're loving this cool weather in the mountains and left the windows open last night. We woke up to 61 degrees in the house and 49 degrees outside. Needless to say, that was a little chillier than we expected. The upside is we are both... Read more
Oh my, 56 degrees this a.m.

What a morning! Still beautiful - the bike is back out on the deck, I've hit 3 yard sales and found a couple of small treasures and am going up the mountain in a few minutes. No need to walk early before it gets too hot as it is still about 70... Read more
Walking on and up
Friday, September 03, 2010      5 comments

So I went further up the mountain this morning but still did not come to the side street that will circle me back around. I looked at the next "significant hill" and thought about all the ones I had to climb to get back home and decided that wa... Read more
I met a man............
Thursday, September 02, 2010      7 comments

Sort of a leading title there but I did meet a man on my walk yesterday who told me about the route he takes that brings him in a circle and it sounded very interesting. So far I have been just been going up the street about a mile and then com... Read more
How did it get to be 3 p.m.
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      3 comments

Someone stole some hours from me - it can't possibly be this late in the afternoon. What have I done to lose the day???? I got up at my usual time - 7ish, had a cup of tea and went for a walk, came back poured some coffee and RB said he needed... Read more
Windows are open
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      6 comments

I could hardly wait to go on my walk this morning - very low 60's, nice breeze - doesn't get much better. The windows are open, birds are singing everywhere in the trees and we can hear the squirrels knocking nuts off the trees. I guess they ... Read more
Barking dogs equals noisy walk
Monday, August 30, 2010      7 comments

My walk up the mountain this morning brought me by two more dogs. The barked from the time they saw me coming until I was out of sight probably at least a 1/4 of a mile. They were on a long rope in a front yard. My walk is often a time ... Read more
Best day for steps - 21748
Sunday, August 29, 2010      6 comments

I have this sort of goal to aim for 20,000 steps per day during the week but it is something I aim for and not something I have to achieve everyday. When I was really trying to do 20,000 per day it was a real struggle to get beyond 18,000 - 19,... Read more
Deer Forest Retreat
Saturday, August 28, 2010      5 comments

We decided to name our cabin - how does the above sound??? We have lots of deer around, we are in a forest (although it is somewhat civilized) and we consider the cabin a little retreat from the world of our permanent home. Any other suggesti... Read more
Airline changes
Friday, August 27, 2010      5 comments

We purchased tickets last month for a flight to Phoenix for a family reunion in October. We got an e-mail yesterday that the airlines would like to change the times of the flight by a couple of hours both coming and going. Now, it really is no... Read more
Exploring day
Thursday, August 26, 2010      4 comments

Another beautiful day for a walk and then some cleaning and vacuuming - always such fun to do. I did 15 minutes on the exercise bike and now we are heading out to explore a couple of the local towns and see the historic areas - just love poking... Read more
