    I am part my church's prayer shawl ministry, and I will confess to probably being the least productive member. Since we also make baby afghans, I grabbed something I started several years ago, went out to the patio, and got to work. As I was crocheting, I was also catching the bird feeder action. ...

    Completed 15 reps of 190-pound leg presses. Thought I was gonna die. We're dealing with typical warm and humid Chicago weather, and, unfortunately, the gym's A/C has decided to slack off. I'm very glad I brought along the large water bottle. When it's hot and sticky, taking a refreshing ... Read more

    I bought a 40 pound bag of kitty litter and lifted into the cart, out of the cart, into the car, out of the car, into the house, and down the stairs. It would appear that I am functionally fit. 244 I got on my hands and knees and pulled the weeds from between the green/wax bean plants. I... Read more

    I'm grateful for the Canadian air mass that reduced our temperatures by about 25 degrees. You guys know how to chill out!!! 211 I was going to pick weeds in a flower bed on the south side of the house and saw a baby bunny hiding under one of the plants.

    Hot one here today. I actually turned on my car's A/C. Took a strength class today and kept up with only guy in the class. Not bad for an old lady. If Jupiter danced with the moon, I missed it.

    I went to a rummage sale at our church and bought a lap-rug sized quilt for $2. It's made out of large squares and is plush. I put it on the couch, and Sami has claimed it for her own; bless her little pussycat heart. Earlier in the week, it was rather cool, but it has warmed up considerably.... Read more

    I finally got around to putting annual arrangements in decorative clay pots and hauled them into the front yard to be put around the door. It was later in the afternoon, and the area was shaded by the silver maples. We've had enough rain that the trees, plants, and grass are lush and green. As I ... Read more

    Instead of spending a stupid amount of time at the gym, I came home, grabbed a spade, and dug out crab grass along the fence. My neighbor finally finished residing and refurbishing his garage, and it looks really nice. Good for him! In the middle bedroom, there is a good sized picture win... Read more

    My goodness! Chives really multiply. I dug out nearly half of the plant and still have plenty. A fly got into the house, and EJ kitty went into action. He got the fly, and, luckily, the house is still standing. I talked to my best friend, Mary, and I'm heading to her house on Friday to ... Read more

    All the tomato plants are finally in the ground. Since I stopped counting at 30, I'm not sure how many I have. Although I have two extra tomato cages, I don't think I'll be buying anymore plants, but I did spot a volunteer growing in one of the flower beds. I'm going to transplant it and see what...

    I must say I am doing pretty well these days. Still not getting enough fiber & getting way way way too many carbs or sweets. I am doing more short burst of low/high impact walking kickboxing & jump rope. Hitting the weights but not too hard because of the injury to my shoulder. It pops from time to ... Read more

    When I got home from the gym, there was still sunlight so I did some weeding. I was a little damp around the edges, so it actually felt a little chilly. What can I say? I get cold easily. We had no rain, and the humidity was low. It was a glorious day in Chicago. My green and wax beans... Read more

    It rained a bit last night, but the ground was decent enough to pull weeds. Dug around and found a project I started a number of years ago. I was crocheting a baby blanket, and it's definitely the time to finish it. I remembered to charge my iPod, so I'll have music for the gym tomorrow. ... Read more
