Finally fall

Sunday, December 06, 2009      4 comments

It's finally fall even though it's winter. The leaves are falling and all over the ground. I just realized something. I LOVE walking through the leaves. I scuffle, I kick them, and pick them up and throw them in the air. I even shake trees ... Read more

Map it Out?

Saturday, December 05, 2009      3 comments

I've always been a sort of chart person. I like to see my results on a chart. I make lists just so I can cross off what I accomplish. I love seeing the SP points, trophies, goodies, etc. I know I'm getting in my fitness points--I see the num... Read more

European Eating

Friday, December 04, 2009      5 comments

I'm not envious of Europeans, I am blessed and greatful to be an American. But there is one things they have one us--eating. What started this train of thought is when I was driving around town yesterday. Most of the other drivers I saw were ... Read more

Oh Joy

Thursday, December 03, 2009      5 comments

I just received two of the new SP trophies--one for 500 points earned in November and one for 1000 fitness points earned in November. I LOVE all these new SP thingies. I also got a new SPoint trophy the other day. It's so much more colorful t... Read more

Ice Water

Wednesday, December 02, 2009      8 comments

There is nothing more refreshing than ice water in winter--NOT! I'm trying though. I don't use as much ice as in summer, but I DO like my water somewhat cold. I don't count hot coffee or hot tea as part of my water intake--I'm pretty sure you... Read more

Sour Lemon Ade

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      2 comments

Fairly newly married, my DH wanted some lemonade. I told him I would make it the next day. I'd never made lemonade before. I went to the store and bought tons of lemons. I really thought frozen lemonade would have been cheaper, but he wanted... Read more

No Fun Gyms

Monday, November 30, 2009      4 comments

I hear you all talk about Drums Alive, Zoomba classes, spinning, etc. I've checked with local gyms and they don't carry anything like these classes. You must live in larger cities to get these specialized classes. Our gyms just have a few aer... Read more

Christmas Boat Parade

Sunday, November 29, 2009      3 comments

I posted 2 days ago that it was hot in sunny southern CA. Yesterday it poured buckets and today it's warm and breezy. Everyone is putting up Christmas decorations in their yards. Next weekend, my Dd's bigger neighborhood (about 1 sq. mile) w... Read more

Unsunny southern California

Saturday, November 28, 2009      2 comments

Two days ago I wrote about sweating and sunshine and beaches in southern sunny California. Yesterday at the malls, everyone was wearing shorts and flip flops. Today it is raining bucket! Coldish, thunder, lightning, rain, rain, rain, torrenti... Read more

Shopping & Walking

Friday, November 27, 2009      7 comments

Went shopping with my DD on this Black Friday. We were gone for 8 hours. However, I'm only going to clock in 40 minutes. My DD and I figured out that I wouldn't count window shopping, shopping in the stores, and ambling along. We would only ... Read more

Thanksgiving in Sunny Souther Calif.

Thursday, November 26, 2009      4 comments

Rememeber the song, "Over the hills and through the snow, to grandma's house we go?" Well they certainly weren't in southern California. We are here to celebrate with my daughter and her family. We are in Oceanside, which is about 30 miles no... Read more

April Fool's

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      2 comments

No, it's not that time of the year. A lady sitting in the chemo office said, I've got two newspapers. It reminded me of April Fool's Day. When my kids were younger, I'd put out $20.00 several weeks before April 1st. I'd tell them that the on... Read more

Once I Was a Wimp

Monday, November 23, 2009      4 comments

I don't like exercise and I used to HATE it. Of course, I had bad knees and was a couch potato. My grandson was in Kindergarden and he took a bus home. I would meet the bus everyday and it was a whole 6 houses away--around the corner, so I co... Read more

Ad Snob

Sunday, November 22, 2009      4 comments

In a former life--younger years--I was a journalism major in College. What I liked best was proof reading, which is looking for spelling and vocabulary errors. I still do it, in a way. You know those pesky fliers you get on your door or under... Read more

No More Moving!

Saturday, November 21, 2009      4 comments

I told my DH to find our home for EVER. I hate moving and didn't want to ever move. Well, I shouldn't have had 4 kids. I've helped everyone of them move--more than once! I hate moving. I hate packing and storing and sorting. My oldest daug... Read more
