Mostly everything is sedimentary rock with a lot of fossils, there is limestone, fluorite crystals, and Kentucky Agate. I just love to get out and look for rocks, check out all the designs.

I had an awesome walk this morning, did 2 miles before my friend came and we did 2 more miles. There was such an awesome sunrise. On my first mile I find a 20.00 bill in the road, and then when my friend came along he told me about his fishing trip to Canada. Then as we were about half mile from being done, it starts thundering and when we get done, the rain starts so we got our walk in before the storm, it was a heavy rain. We are both old boys scouts so we decided that if it started to rain while we were walking, we would just finish in the rain, would not be the first time.

Oh I also found some neat rocks as I was walking this morning.

Have a blessed day.

Took my grand daughter out on a nice trail ride yesterday it was her first time on a horse. SHe has recently expressed so interested . It was nice and slow and safe She has a blast and I did not do any damage to my body so I am very happy with that After we went to a gorgeous coffee shop that over looks the river I had a iced chai and a scone .LOL so I didn't do great either

I got to ride today, humidity much better today, was still foggy but that was in the county so I rode in town today. Yep did my cherry slush ride.

Forgot to water my tomatoes this morning, we got a trace of rain but not enough for my plants.
They should be ok till I get home this evening. Hope to head to the creek after that, want to do a little "rock hunting", another hobby of mine, or an excuse to be outside,

Have a blessed day

It is already hot here. It was over 100 again yesterday They never really give us a heat index thing but do add it feels 20-30 degrees hotter in the sun. I only work out there for a few hours in the early morning and then do inside things until it cools back off into the 90's later in the day
Today I am going to lunch with a friend and we are going to recon a stable. My grand daughter is interested in horses all of a sudden she is going to be 13. I thought I would maybe take her for a trail ride. She has expressed intesrt in lessons but has never been on a horse. I thought this might be a good idea. LOL Now I have not been on a horse in probably 10 years. I hope I survive . I am very sure my back is going to be angry with me.

It was hot and sticky this morning, I chose to walk, yesterday was the hottest day we have had in a while, 95 was high but with humidity it was well into the 100's. I almost went indoors to walk this morning. My computers acting so weird today, I getting a lot of walking indoors today as well.

Saturday I stayed outside all day, mowing, weeding, and it wasn't bad, it was hot but still there was a breeze.

Cool weather coming though, low 80's by Friday.

God Bless

. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hit, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

The cool weather did feel good. It was crazy hot here again today.
WE ran into town and stopped at the tax assessor office and the county clerk. Then the title place that did our Title search for our closing when we bought our place.We are thinking about drilling another well and the state has no record of our well. So we need to see if we can prove how old it is . We may actually have water rights .In the desert that is a big deal. We are still at a dead end
After the serious stuff we hit a few thrift stores. Picked up a couple of really nice chaise lounge chairs with decent cushions for out in the yard. They will be real nice for laying out there at night looking at the stars.I prefer to be off the ground in case I fall asleep and a snake creeps by.
Then we had a green chili cheese burger at this place people rave about. It was way too hot and the chili over powered the entire burger. :(
Hope you have a great weekend with your family :)

I went on a short hike, to Alice Lake Provincial Park earlier this month, I left Noni in the kitchen to serve our guess after I had prepared the meal. This me time was so needed.
I brought our little MSR camp stove to make tea and heat up some chili down by the river.
All in all I spent three hours just relaxing soaking up some sun and unwinding mentally.







The baby was left home too

Good looking cake there, love the nature pictures too.

I chose to walk this morning, and I needed it, just a good quite time with the Lord, birds singing, beautiful sunrise and I stayed away from the cherry slush today...:0)

My camp going good so far, one more day, my nature class we had a bee keeper bring in his bees and we talked about bee keeping, like to do that myself one day, when I slow down.

Have a blessed day

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

family

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

My daughter has been taunting me with how many steps she has today ..Rotten kid. She is in Florida and we text our steps back and forth all day to each other .It keeps us both in line and it is a fun game.Wish we could just go walk the beach together LOL
Heading out to check the garden
Have a great day :)

OH boo about the date night. The squirrels sound like fun though. I used to love their antics at my feeders in NJ and Fl. We only have ground squirrels here They are as destructive but not as much fun to watch.
The Blue grass festival was nice. I like that type of music . There was one group that totally rocked the house with their rendition of hot rod Lincoln...Not exactly Gospel but they did a wonderful job. They were more upbeat then the other groups .More Appalachian mountain.
Yesterday I baked with zuchinni I will be doing the same thing tomorrow. I only have like 4 good plants but they are doing great. I planted mortgage lifter tomatoes this year they are doing really good too. I am going to have to start giving them away :)
My little pullets are starting to lay too.
Probably not good to encourage the boys but I think the burp contest sounds funny.They grow up to fast .A burping contest sounds pretty mellow. How old are they?
Have a great day :)

Well my date night didn't go like I wanted, wife didn't want to go out in humidity at the lake and Saturday was so nice I thought we might slip out there then, nope ended up driving out of town to eat and shop, oh well.....
Did watch 2 squirrels chasing each other down a tree and both ran right off of the tree, one keep on going, the other had a stare down with a robin, so cute, the squirrel one as the robin flew off.

Schools starts here in 2 weeks, my camp went well today, 3 more days, wore out though. My second class is nothing but boys, and they were having a burping contest, guess it could have been worst.

No rain so far but humid, a chance of rain Tuesday hope it holds off till the afternoon.
Have a blessed day

This week did go fast.Hubby and I took a lazy day too.We went up to a cafe that has over priced coffee but sn awesome deck that over looks a babbling brook.It sounds so peaceful. They don't rush you in any way shape or form so you can just read or chat for hours.It is also much cooler up there.
Tomorrow hubby took a vacation day and after I get home from work we are going up to a bluegrass festival.
Hope you have a great date night :)and a great weekend

It was 109 * this afternoon. We had a nice breakfast in the garden this morning and then did yard work until around 10:30.It just gets so hot.I pulled up a few squash plants today between the wind and the heat they are doung terrible, figured I should save the water.
Was waiting to hear from a breeder about a puppy.No word .Guess we will keep looking around.
It is so nice that you do the camp.
Hope your boss chills out.

Wow 105, I had another humid bike ride this morning but no slushy, tried to behave

I know i was wore out last night when I finally got home. Only had 3 hours of sleep the night before. I have my other camp next week that I am in charge of and trying to get all things together. Have a certain boss to that makes life stressful to. I think I am wore out now the way I am writing.

I got another humid bike ride in this morning. Raining now so not sure about Friday ride yet.

I walked again today, my friend didn't show up today, so if it quits raining, I am going to bike in the morning.

We have got a lot of rain to be July, usually hot and dry, it is still humid. My tomatoes do not like it to well.

Sun is much better than being cold, not a cold weather fan at all.

Legos are a wonderful thing :) I am glad you had a good time off. The weather here has bee so hot .I swear you feel like you are going to burst into flames when you walk in the sun. I try to get anything that needs to be done in the yard done early. I was joking with my daughter before and told her it was only102* outside that I would need to grab a hoodie LOL
I brought in some eggplants and zucchini today and got them all cooked up into stuff I can freeze for the winter . It was hot in here even with the AC on .Eggplant parm and chocolate zucchini brad are worth it though LOL
I have been having trouble getting in all the walking I like to do. Oh well My weight is holding steady so I won't complain.. And sun is much better then being cold :)

I am back, had a long week, had some great days with my grandson, one day we played Legos all day long. Having some work done on mothers house, that has been a headache. Glad to get back into sync. Rained everyday I was off to, periods of rain then sunshine so things were not to bad on that part.

Only got a 2 mile walk in this morning, people not seeing me last week having to stop and talk, my walking buddy didn't make it today either.

Oh well, it'll get better,

That would be scary seeing armed soldiers like that, hope we never come to that.

I walked with my friend this morning, he headed off after today to a camp site in eastern Kentucky for the rest of the week and next week I am off taking some vacation days to get some things done, so I probably will not be on here either for a week starting Friday.

Weather so nice today.

Have a blessed day.

you get so much good exercise in .That is awesome.I got 1500 on my pedometer so I am happy.I am thrilled I can do that. 2 years ago I was having a good day if I could make it to the mail box and back without wanting to cry. I am so blessed I have met a good PT person that has me stretched out and in less pain .
We are only 2 hours from Mexico . It is scary to go there though. Or it was last time I was there. Jeep cruised the streets with armed soldiers and machine guns mounted on the back. It was like something out of a movie .
We are blessed to live in this country .
Had a nice visit with the grand girlies today . We went to the free movie this morning at the theater then after dinner we had a netflix movie to share with them.
Have a great day .

Well at first was not sure about my bike ride this morning, heavy fog early but cleared up so I could ride. Then at lunch went for a mile walk outside.

It's a shame that our medical is so outrageous high, to far away from mexico for me.

Some strong storms went through yesterday evening, some fierce lightning and winds.

Walk again with my friend this morning, storms gone and clear and warming up again.
My step counter hit 10000 at 10 a.m. this morning, so looks like a lot of steps in the plan today.

Have a blessed weekend.

Spring contract is ending - phew I survived the most stressful season yet at camp for me -- Monday summer season begins - hopefully it is better... But first I must survive a BBQ Thursday for 175+ and another one on Friday for 350+ . There is a weekend off the last one Noni and I have together until --- whom knows when.....

My mom is really spry like that. She gets out and gardens nearly every day She is 85 She has a little neighbor over there that still travels to Germany nearly every year alone. He is 91 AMAZING!
The blue berries sound good. We picked cherries a few weeks ago they were delish.
I took my Grand daughter to the movies today and we had the car washed. We had fun. We are going to go again next week. The theater does a free movie on Tuesdays during the summer .
It is another scorcher today. We are going to go camping on our days off YIPPIE It will be much cooler up in the mountains emoticon

Had a good walk with my buddy this morning, 80 years old and getting ready to head off on another foreign trip, says he needs to get some walking in before he goes, so we going to be walking together for a little while. He moves really fast to be 80.

The walk this morning was so humid though, 72 degrees, storms moving in later. Got my yard mowed last night. Washed the car.

Went and got me some fresh blueberries, going to munch on them today.

God Bless

You have a great weekend too. I will be back to work for the weekend proper .Not sure what we are going to do today. I have to make our breakfast and lunch to go buckets. I find it helpful to pre-pack our food.
I also have to go get hay supposed to be crazy hot again today and worse over the weekend.
I am thinking we will just hang out and take it easy today :)

That's interesting, I can skinned most anything as well, but not so great as preserving it, cleaned a snake once, worst smelling thing ever, did preserve the hide though..

Well I did it, a cherry slushy ride this morning, the 24 ounce cup they have fits perfect in my water bottle holder on my bike. So now I have a coffee ride and a cherry slush ride, hmm wonder what is next....:0)

Was going to mow when I got home yesterday but what happens, here comes another bad storm, yea weather people who said this stuff is gone, what ever.... this morning on my ride it clouded up and looking like rain now.

Oh well still had a great bike ride.

Have a blessed weekend

It is so hot here and is supposed to get even hotter over the next few days.
Glad I have some inside projects I can do :)
I have always thought taxidermy was a very interesting hobby. I come from a hunting family and can case shin anything . I used to skin out found dead things to support my son and I when I was much younger .I was a single mom for a while and could earn money for the pelts.
We took the dogs on a nice hike and picnic earlier .It was so beautiful in the mountains.
Have a great day :)

More strong storms yesterday evening but now that has moved on for the next several days, humidity and heat still here.

Did my coffee ride this morning, Song birds were really singing away this morning.Beautiful sunrise, beautiful sunset last night after storm clouds started clearing out. The beauty of God's creation is just awesome.

Did find a dead male cardinal on the road this morning, had not been dead to long, moved him to the grassy area.Would like to learn taxidermy for when I find ones like this, but only already dead.

Have got to find me a good bike riding container for my "cherry slush rides".

God Bless

I drove into town after work this morning and ran errands it was 92* last time I checked.It is way too hot to do anything. The air burns your lungs it is so dry.Wish we would get a bit if rain. I never really minded the humidity. I grew up in the NE then lived in Florida for several years.This dry stuff was a shocked to my swampy up bringing.Hubby grew up in Houston. He just loves being humidity free.
Have a great day😊

Humidity is what zaps a person, and makes storms worst, we had a bad round of storms yesterday evening, expecting more today, and it is so humid. Tried to walk at lunch yesterday but only did a mile, it was so hot.

Only walked 30 minutes this morning, but that was because I had to make a Walmart run before. Was planning a coffee ride, but try Thursday, it may have to be a cherry slushy ride...:0)

Have blessed day

Grandson and I had a great time last night, we wore each other out, we did a lot of walking, went to visit and feed the ducks, walked around the house and around the house and around the house a bunch of times.

Walked outside this morning, it was cool so I walked instead of biking, bike Friday.

I went from sunrise that day till sunset, I was wore out at the end of the day.

Biked today - 12 miles and kids camps again today. Morning glories were really smelling good on my bike ride this morning. Stopped for coffee at the end, today's blend was not so good, know better next time.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Love that picture Marty it looks so calming and peaceful.

Got another great bike ride in today, was going to walk this morning but finally got my yard mowed last evening, and I did a bunch of walking there, my pedometer hit 25000 steps yesterday. I am working kids camps as well so that helped with add to the pedometer.

God Bless
