Monday, July 03, 2017      5 comments

This has been a busy weekend! Work is finally progressing at the house - we may get to move in there by the end of July if all goes well. Trim is going up around windows and some areas of the floor, appliances are there though not installed ye... Read more
New Virtual Walk
Saturday, June 17, 2017      3 comments

It took me 18 months to walk all the necessary steps to complete the PCT on the Walking 4 Fun website. Older DD and I actually walked part of the real PCT last summer when we were in Oregon. But I never really enjoy that trek until Washington,... Read more
Fresh Air

67 degrees this morning, much cooler than it has been. After I returned from my morning walk I left the door open for Max the cat. He has been suffering so much because we have had to keep the apartment closed up with the air on. He LOVES fre... Read more
Shopping for DD

Did my morning walk at 5AM today. It was already 74 outside and so very humid. I peeled off my tank as soon as I got back in the apartment and had a dickens of a time getting my sweaty socks off too. All before even attempting to climb the st... Read more
Darn Aria!
Monday, June 12, 2017      4 comments

I've had my Aria scale for a little over a year. Love it. We get together once a day, have a little chat and most of the time I go away feeling pretty good. Then Saturday I decided to put in new batteries and Aria got mean to me. Today I tri... Read more

This has been a stressful week for me. Last day of school should have been joyful but so many bad things happened that it was just overwhelming. Got forced off the road by a semi in a big hurry, got called a liar by the apartment manager becau... Read more
Almost Summer Vacation!
Monday, June 05, 2017      3 comments

I had a hard day yesterday. It was soooo hot in the apartment and even hotter outside. I felt sick and ended up lying down for a while because of the heat with a fan on. By the time it was bedtime I was begging DH to turn on the air condition... Read more
Another Depressing Day of House Stuff
Saturday, June 03, 2017      3 comments

DD and I bought the paint for the exterior doors today. By the time we got back to the house it was already above 80. She washed down all the doors while I filled nail holes with wood putty. By the time we were done my desire to paint had van... Read more
Summer is Quickly Approaching

Bang, bang. Clang, clang. Pound, pound, pound. "Marvin!" That was the start of my day at 4:07AM. Lordy I hate this apartment. The trash man comes daily at this ungodly hour and our neighbors, the I-Don't-Know-How-To-Parks are constantl... Read more
Asparagus the Wonder Vegetable
Tuesday, May 30, 2017      5 comments

Yesterday, Memorial Day, has long been a cook-out day. But, alas, we are charcoal grilling people not propane and our grill is not welcome in our apartment complex. So we had hot dogs cooked the old-fashion way - boiled. We also fixed asp... Read more
Nothing Like a New Pair of Laces
Tuesday, May 30, 2017      5 comments

I love those new walking shoes! Brooks Ghost in purple (don't you just love purple shoes?) What I have noticed, however, is that the shoelaces are too dark to untie when I return from my morning walk. They are also purple and in the dim light... Read more
Shoes Needed
Friday, May 26, 2017      6 comments

In my last blog I complained about how much my feet have been hurting. Days and days. It takes a while for them to "warm-up" at the start of my morning walk and again for my evening walk. Someone mentioned my shoes, and I'm pretty consciencio... Read more
My Poor Aching Feet
Wednesday, May 24, 2017      5 comments

One of my fitbit friends has been really putting in some huge step counts. This in turn has made me have to ramp up my step counts to keep up (or at least get closer). I've been getting over 20,000 every day (to his 50,000) which is wonderful ... Read more

Took a long nap today and I feel like I have finally caught up with the missed sleep from last week's hospital trek. DD hasn't passed the stone yet but the end is getting nearer we think. Took a nice walk after the rain today (which I sle... Read more
