Been procrastinating on the exercising, but just won the exercise video. Taking that as an omen. Going out to the sunroom now to dust off the treadmill. emoticon

It has been a rain last few days. The ground is super saturated making walking a sloppy mess. The dogs have to be dried when they come back in. The granddogs are coming tomorrow for a week.

Have a great day everyone and I want to welcome our new members!

We have the two granddogs this week & next week, plus our two so I am getting plenty of exercise! When it comes time to go out they don't use the doggie door ... they wait until they see me going out then they all try to beat me to the door!

Got mine doing our shopping day. The stores were all busy ... not sure why the grocery was so busy. Wednesday is their usual busy day. DH think since is it the 15th that a lot of folks got their food stamp card renewed. But we got fresh pork picnics for $1 a pound. DH will either smoke them or turn them into ham. We have a corned beef that will be done tomorrow so we bought rye bread and swiss cheese for reuben sandwiches (we canned sauerkrat earlier).

Yes, I did walk this morning. 3 miles/about an hour (my usual). It was nice and sunny, altho cool - then in the afternoon it started raining, even tho the weather service said NO rain until the weekend. They are so wrong!!!!!!

This is probably a moot point by now, but usually 15-20%. If you're in a large group, the wait staff usually puts the tip on the bill and often times they'll do 18% - at least around here.

We finally got some rain here! I still went out with the dogs about every hour and a half. I just didn't do much walking as it was mostly get the business done and get back in the house. I went out to the chicken house to get eggs, fixed hard boiled eggs for DH.

I don't have much planned for today. I need to fix rice for the older dog. I make it in the crockpot (1 cup rice & 7 cups of water) This makes a whole crockpot full of rice and is like a porridge.

We are going out to dinner with a group tonight. We never go out to eat so I am not sure how much to tip? 15% or more?

Have a great day all!

I'm heading out for my walk in about 30 minutes. It's been raining off and on, so hopefully I can dodge rain showers. I'll take an umbrella with me though "just in case" - after all, it's Oregon and it gets pretty unpredictable sometimes....

I can sure tell I did NOT walk yesterday or do anything else, kind of makes one feel like a slug!

Then I need to go have some glasses adjusted and a few other errands today. Maybe to Costco for a Rotisserie chicken....

Walked what felt like miles in a huge garden picking green bell peppers. I am logging a mile for that then another mile for all the rest of the walking I did. I am worn out today.

Today is a shopping day so I know I will get lots of walking and finish the day up with walks with the dogs. I am probably the only person with a fenced back yard that walks their dogs. They are not on leashes but I have to walk with the old dog as she will "bolt" when she finishes her business and if I don't stay with her I have to chase her down.

Have you tried wrapping your ankles with an Ace bandage? I have problem knees and do that to give them some support.

I've walked with the dogs twice so far today ... 10 to 15 minutes each time. We are processing a deer we have had in the freezer so that will be the majority of my exercise.

I had a brutal upper body work out with a trainer at SNAP Fitness. He almost did me in. But it feels good now. Man alive, do I have some work to do. UGH.

I did get in a short walk yesterday. I also had my first visit with a fitness trainer at SNAP fitness which I just joined (my insurance provider offers Silver and Fit) a no cost. Long story short, he showed my how to use the machines and had me give them a try. Even though I can walk a mile or more without breaking a sweat, I was totally done in within 3 minutes. Man alive, I see a lengthy journey to get my legs back. But I will take the steps necessary to make to reach my goal.
Thanks for listening,

I don't go to public pools (but I loved mine when we had one), now doing this heat and drought the public pools here are really having problems. With over 63 days of triple digits there are "bugs" getting in the water that chlorine doesn't kill. It doesn't sound like that was your problem, but having your own test kit might be a great idea.

Good for you on the workout. Woo Hoo! I think I would be dead at .5 miles. I am going to have to call the county on myself. I have not been to my backyard to check on my pool in about a month. At least I have a self chlorinating pool but that is not the only maintenance the pool needs.

The county retested after inspecting the work done and reopened the pool as it passed all standards. I may do my own testing, as you suggest, just so I know what is going on, too.

But it seems that the call to the County Health Department got the ball rolling to fix what was wrong as it had been ignored for over a month. We don't know who called the County, but I'm glad HE? did. We got the results we wanted anyway.

Oh! I did my exercise today. 5 miles of pool jogging.

It is great that you have the time and can interact with friends. I hope the problem with the pool is fixed soon. The thought of the feeling after receiving such a county notice is awful it must be pretty bad if they went to such an extent to close the pool and issue notices. I would buy one of those products at the health foods store for bugs gone, like the ones people take when they travel abroad. Once the problem is fixed if it was me I would periodically take a water sample to the local pool store and have it tested. Good luck!

Hi, BARSAL14! I go every morning, when I shove the DH off to work, to the pool. I really feel revved when I come home and while I'm at the pool, I have friends that I can talk to and laugh with and plan things with and it really does an entire thing to the brain and body. Seems to give me energy just looking forward to it.

However, we got notice yesterday that there is something wrong with the filtration system and the county closed our pool with warnings that if you've been in it, you need to shower and "scrub yourself well". I washed my hair for a second time and took a shower making sure not one single spot was missed and wondered about what managed to find a home on me, which spurred the "scrub" on. New info this morning brought info that a few knew about the problems for over a month. That really bothers me. Our very rich landlord is now a slumlord as far as I am concerned and since it's a 55+ community, I think there maybe some legal problems coming.

Well, my problem. Have a great one!

I walked for 2.5 miles today. I wonder where Floridaghost find the energy? I have a pool and have not used it once this summer. Too busy with work.

Hi, Xana!

Im sorry about your grass. I don't have grass, well, not the St. Augustine that I worked so hard to have and then watched it destroyed by cinch bugs that the park management put into my yard. They ate every root of my St. Augustine. I vowed to leave it grow up as it wanted. If management didn't care, I was no longer putting the money on it. So now I have a lovely shade of green weeds that get's sort of mowed, more like chewed on a weekly basis right now. When summer comes they cut it about once a month. But then the entire park looks like that because we all feel the same way. Only one guy in the park is still spending the money to keep his St. Augustine - it looks great but when there's no money, it will end up like ours, too.

Were do you live, Xana? I'm pretty sure I knew once, but I've forgotten.

Have a Sparkling day.

I sure miss our pool .... and I am so sick of triple digit days (I lost count a long time ago!) but they are predicting only double digits (99) on Wednesday! I have taken a break from planting grass ... and it is so sad to look at our front yard as it is a lovely shade of gold!

Yesterday I was dressed and ready to go to work at 6 am. Reported to my boss that I was ready to go to work. He said it would be a long time, so I asked him what I was supposed to do? Play on the computer! So as soon as it was daylight, Dear Husband and I were out putting a cover over the chicken yard. When we were done I got two jars of grass and planted grass.

Due to the drought, we have had lots of critters ... rabbits, possums, snakes, etc.... even a report of a mountain lion a few miles from here so we are keeping the doggie doors closed. That for two reasons, first for the dogs safety and second to keep these critters out. So I get exercise ever 1hr 30 minutes taking them out. Its too hot to stay out long, but while the dogs are out I water the new grass I planted.

I hope everyone is having a cool summer. We have surpassed all records back to the fifties. Only more triple digits in the forecast and no rain. Thinking about going to New Zealand where they had snow last week.

Xana

The Mall Mash is exactly that, a nice even walk, at a great pace if you get there ahead of the crowds. They used to do it at SouthCenter near where I lived. One lap, all the way around, was about 1.5 miles. Some stretched it by taking every little nook, too. For some reason it was called the Mall Mash. There were several people that would get there before the stores opened and walk the Mall. It is definately a great way to do it in a controlled environment and you are actually helping the security department because no body is going to try to break into a store with the Mall bunch hoofing it around the place from the second they open the doors until they are locked closed again.

You are right about it being too hot. Yesterday, we had a community pool party and it was attended by about 170 people. I stayed inside because it was 107F in the heat index, whcih was way too hot. The pool had a good clip of breeze, but it wasn't a cooling breeze by my standards.

Have a Sparkling day and week ahead!

It is way too hot to do anything outside. I quite planting grass but have started it up in very small controlled area otherwise it will just die. So other than planting grass and taking the dogs out ... that is about it.

But when I went to the mall to get my glasses, I found that lots of folks are going there before most stores open and getting their walking done in the cool. The key factors are don't take a purse and walk at a smooth even pace. Don't shop when the store open unless there is something you really, really need.
