Between the raindrops

Friday, May 04, 2012      4 comments

I did 45 minutes on the bike this morning and have been trying to talk myself in to using the treadmill but I so much prefer walking outside. The rain has finally stopped so I am thinking it is time to head out before it either gets too hot or ... Read more

The mountain walk

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      1 comments

This morning I decided it was time to climb up the mountain/hill that rises past our cabin. My goal is to make it to the top without stopping for breath so I do lots of deep breathing all the way up. I would guess it is about a quarter of a m... Read more

I started the day off with a ride on the bike in the basement. I miss my bike being out on the deck and may have to change that as time goes on. Then I went downtown to get a haircut and did the river walk. RB and I went to Home Depot later i... Read more

This morning we headed out to our favorite orchard/farmer's market just to see what was available and we had a surprise! We found the most wonderful GA mountain strawberries just coming in to season and as sweet and delicious as you could imagi... Read more

Day 1 at the cabin

Sunday, April 29, 2012      3 comments

We pulled in yesterday afternoon and as usual the 8.5 drive did us in. We went to the local supermarket and made use of their salad bar and a container of home made vegetable soup - we really need to get Publix to do this! We picked up a few t... Read more

Getting closer

Saturday is the designated day to leave for the cabin. As it turns out we can only stay 10 days this time but we will enjoy the time we have and get the cabin ready for the rest of the summer. Hopefully, we'll get back there in a couple of wee... Read more

Today is the day

I'm finally going to do it - clean off my desk! I keep notes of things to do in a pile on the side of my desk and this afternoon it will be clean and shiny but exercise comes first. I had a walk this morning but it is getting warm again an... Read more

New Balance for me

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      4 comments

I had a great walk this morning in my new sneakers. If anyone is in the market I highly recommend New Balance #608. Instant comfort for me! I have about 6 errands to do and then a visit to my elderly friend so I am off to get my bike ride... Read more

Feeling guilty for no reason

Monday, April 16, 2012      3 comments

Yesterday we had our whole family for dinner. I thought everyone was coming about 4 but most of them came at 2:30! We played games with the grand and visited while we waited for the rest. Then we had a wonderful dinner of roasted pork and hom... Read more

Today is why we live in Florida

Saturday, April 07, 2012      3 comments

I woke this morning to a bright, beautiful, breezy 61 degrees. We've been really warm the last week or 10 days and this was a welcome change. I had a cup of tea and went out and started walking - I was gone over an hour and my pace was very br... Read more

Happy days are here again....

Wednesday, April 04, 2012      3 comments

We're beginning to make plans to head to the cabin for the summer. We can't quite go yet but just making plans make me feel better. One of the things that needs to be done is to clean out the freezer so we are diligently working on that an... Read more

What was I thinking???

The grand spent the night last night and we got up early to go to church for Palm Sunday. Our daughter and fiancée met us at church and the grand wanted to go to Denny's afterwards for breakfast. My daughter and I both love the Super Bird ... Read more

What a busy week. I got called in to the thrift store for an extra day as someone was sick. The grand was here for three days and the community had a yard sale that we decided to participate in to get rid of some stuff. The grand wanted... Read more

Getting warm fast

Sunday, March 18, 2012      2 comments

So I would say central Florida had one -maybe two - days of winter this year. We are already averaging mid 80's most days and summer is fast approaching here. We wish we could leave for the cabin but other commitments will keep us here at leas... Read more

New walking route

Tuesday, March 13, 2012      3 comments

Not far from our home there is a subdivision that was laid out 5-6 years ago during the building boom. It has concrete streets, sidewalks, lighting, signs, underground utilities, etc. but no houses were ever built there. I walked over there th... Read more
