A great walk again today, got in 70 minute walk, then when I went inside the rain starts, so I got a dry walk. Look like the rain might be around a while, hope not.

Have a blessed day

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.

Good Morning, had a great walk this morning with my walking buddy, cooler temps moved back in- 54 this morning. Had a great weekend, we were though south of Louisville Saturday and got caught in a mean storm, seen a big tree get snapped off at its based and blown over as I was driving.

Had my breakfast under the big maple this morning after my walk.

Have a blessed day

Starting the morning off by enjoying our balcony at the Condo.. not very often have we had this pleasure





Dalhousie is so funny.. he doesn't want to sit outside with me on the balcony, so he goes to my chair and naps

Feeling grateful that I have a job, but very unhappy with the job. Welcome to the real world I guess.. for the most part for the last eight years I have enjoyed waking up and going into the kitchen and cooking those long hours and delicious foods.
This year it has been a chore, drama and just an unpleasant experience, and we are just beginning...

Oh well I'm off for the next three days...
to start off my weekend I went home and lit up the BBQ

Got 16500 steps in yesterday, had a great walk this morning, then had not been in building 15 minutes and a horrible storm hit. It was lightning afar off when we were walking and partly cloudy. Think we almost had another tornado, winds and rain were so strong. Think this one caught everyone by surprise.

Have a blessed weekend.

The cactus are nice here in the sea of brown at least they add some green. But I agree they are evil to work with. I have another section I have to trim back after I am done with this one.I think I have skipped doing it for several years at least so It is my own fault this happened. I will remain more vigilant in the future
Glad the wild boys were good.
I better head out and release the chickens they probably think I ran away from home emoticon

I use to have a cactus garden,I got rid of it, got tired of being stuck all the time I worked in it, then a couple years afterward there would still be thorns in the soil.

Good walk this morning, wild boys were good last night, Weather is still great,praise the Lord.

Have a blessed day

Another beautiful day, had a hard time getting my walk in, got in 50 minutes of walking. My walking buddy was headed out on a hike with another friend this morning, and they wanted to go before it got hot. I had to work so I couldn't go. Oh Well

The Four big waits
As I drive to Vancouver this morning I was thinking about some of the Big Waits I have waited...
Waiting for Christmas morning and Santa clause ...
Waiting for my first child to arrive and all the anxiety and joy as the doctor tells me all is well.
Waiting for the test results for Aids when I found out my ex wife had been having affairs before our separation / divorce
Waiting now for the test results of my cancer biopsy...

All is Well ... the test at this time show no signs of Cancwr...

Praise God

I have been so busy in the yard I have not been spending to much time on the computer. I guess I lost this thread .
Yesterday my son had his pining ceremony he earned his RN-BSN He is now a nurse ..well almost he will still have to sit for his licensing boards .I am so proud of him. He decided he wanted to better himself for his family and went back to school. He will be 41 this year. It has been a rough few years .
14066 steps for me today and I am nearly done trimming up the labyrinth. I think I will finish with the ice plant tomorrow and only have 2 agave's left ..Then it will be time for the cactus. Seriously not looking forward to that.
Have a blessed day :)

I love to watch the birds and butterflies, love to look for them on my walks or hikes.

Walked outside today with my 82 year old walling buddy today, it had been raining, and light rain but we walked anyway, we're both old boys scouts and we hiked and camped a lot in the rain, so little rain hurts nobody.

Hope to get out this evening or int he morning on a short hike.

Have a blessed weekend

Got a great walk in this morning, 40 degrees and 80 minute walk, 6.6 miles. Weekend was wild, rain Friday evening, Saturday, just boring, clears off Saturday afternoon about 4 so we head to town, have some shopping to do. Come out and see more storms clods coming inn, then head over to grab a sandwich, and get caught in another hail storm.
Then yesterday a friend had chest pains and went to hospital, went to check on him, he ok, having heart cath done today.
And then more rain coming back in, have to get lawn or should I say hay field mowed this afternoon, Going to have a lot of steps, had over 10,000 when I was done with my walk.

Oh well, this to shall pass
Have a blessed day

I hate negative people. There is always so much to be thankful for and if you focus on that ; even in darkness you can't help to remain positive.

20,009 steps for yesterday I worked in the yard for the biggest part of the day. I still have a long way to go .My goal is to work in the labyrinth all week after work to get in cleaned up.

Good Job on step Marty

I got a good walk in this morning before the rain came in. It is a very light rain and not to bad to be out in any way. Weather was calling for 90 percent thunderstorms over night but they never materialized.

Had to deal with several negative people yesterday and this morning came across this quote,

"When you start with a negative, it is almost impossible to ever get back to anything positive and wonderful. When you start with a positive, things tend to take care of themselves from within. --- Richard Rohr

Have a blessed day

I love the outdoors too. I always have. We used to go up to the mountains every day to hike with the dogs when we first moved out here. It was great. But now the cost of gas is high and we have so much to do with our yard we no longer can . We also used to go camping every weekend . LOL That has gotten harder too. We primitive camp and it just seems harder and harder every year to pack all the stuff and set up, gather wood to stay warm blah blah. I feel like a cop out to the things I love.
My mom is 86 she has always stayed very busy and worked in her gardens and helped others . She is a great inspiration
15643 steps for me today.

I love to go to parts of the Appalachian trail when I can, but I love going on any trail anymore and enjoy the outdoors.

Wind has finally quit blowing so hard that the butterflies are back out, have not seen one in a week due to strong storms and winds. Got another outside walk this morning, 75 minutes of walking, had a new walking buddy this morning, he walk a mile and half with me. My other walking buddy that is 82 I learned is not walking as much now due to tender feet. But to go as he has is such an great example of motivation. He also shows me that it is important to keep our minds busy with learning, crosswords, reading books, and such.... never give up

The Appalachian trail hike is supposed to be an arduous adventure in real life .I have been on it in several places but never hikes the who thing. We had often talked about it when we we were young too.It is not even a blip on my radar now

I worked in the garden yesterday. Got a small section done .It will take a while but I will get it slowly but surely 13674 steps for me yesterday

Nice pictures Marty ...You and Noni are always out there hiking around :)
Have a blessed off to work ....then errands :)

I need to check out the virtually hiking the Appalachian trail, might be some spots i have been to before, not many but a few. If I had it do over again that is one thing I would have done once out of school when I was younger. I enjoy reading a book by Paul Stuzman, " Hiking Through", reading it for my 3rd time now. It is about his hike on the Appalachian trail. Love the chapter on butterflies.

Had a great walk outside this morning, did 82 minutes of walking. Winds yesterday were 40 - 50 miles an hour and made it difficult to be outside at all. Only 12068 steps yesterday but better than none at all.

Have a blessed day.

Great time with Grandson this weekend. Went to Walmart this morning to walk because it was raining, could only walk 40 minutes, it doesn't take much Walmart walking to do one, so then I went outside whether rain or not, rain had slowed down considerably so I got in a 20 minute walk. Didn't get to wet.

Have a blessed day

I love the horses. Do you have them at camp Marty?
11532 steps yesterday. One day soon this wind is going to stop blowing.I am getting my work done but not much else. The puppy and I took the mail up to the mail box and then continued on up the street for a bit. He love a walk and is a good walking partner. The corgi boys are older and not as enthusiastic .

Praying for you Marty, God Bless you.

Had a rain storm over night, not to bad, they now giving lesser chances of rain over the weekend, our atmosphere is dry and that is drying up the rain as it hits it. Hope it drys it up, had enough rain for a while.

Got in a another 6.5 mile walk this morning and included a 3 mile part of it with my 82 year old walking buddy, he still moving fast. Took umbrella with my as I thought I might find rain, but when daylight hit, I could tell clods were clearing out.

Boys were good last night.
Have blessed day.

Saying a prayer for you Marty. That is an ordeal my husband went through that several years ago.
Lee hope your storms will be mild. We have been having very bad winds here and it seems when we do ,it hits in a bad way in the middle of our country ,
Way to go on steps you two :)
I got 17952 yesterday between running errand and working in the yard .Also had to phone cals. I walk while I talk phone calls so that gets it higher
My mom fell and broke her wrist and bruised her ribs pretty good,She is 86 please send her some healing thoughts and prayers. She is staying very positive.She is worried about all the folks she helps out though. She does laundry and helps others with shopping and check writing etc She kills me ,she always says she is helping the old lady down the street ?????
LOL Great heart my mom has.
Hope the wild boys were good :)

Well I succeeded in getting my steps in today.. today was very different than any other day in my life..

I spent the morning getting too and in Vancouver Hospital.. I arrived early for my appointment.. good thing as I had to deal with a heavy rain down pour, construction, busy bumper to bumper Traffic, and I got lost then a few times around the parking lot to get a parking spot.
24 hours fasting .. I sure was hungry..
Then the joyous appointment with the ultranationalist.. and assistant and student.
Biopsy... done now I wait two weeks to get results of wether I have prostrate cancer or not ..

Supper






Most of my steps now are from working in the kitchen.. and then top ups on walks after work.
I'm at 10,000 steps at 2:30 from working only. Today I had a hour sit down meeting this morning with a sales rep.. I normally have 10,000 around lunch time..

I begin at 7:30 am go steady till 2 ish break till 4 them steady in the kitchen again till 7 ish..

Today I cycled 12.3 miles, 45 minutes.. but the Fitbit didn't recognize any of it..

So this is a good summary.. time to move again and go back into my kitchen

Now I am wishing I topped at 20000, but at the time, I was doing good to pick one foot up in front of the other. Got in 15000 yesterday.

Did get a great walk in outside this morning. Started an exercise program with my boys last night, only they didn't realize it was exercise.....hehehe.......

Meetings all day, I am meeting out, still have several to go.

Have a blessed day

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.

I finished with 19,500 steps yesterday - 11 miles, I was wore out. we had a big bad storm we got caught in yesterday too, extremely high winds, heavy rains and hail. We were driving and I had to pull over it was so bad, the hail was quarter inch size and was so strong that we had to out our fingers in our ears to help block out the sound and the car was rocking, I was figuring to get flipped over. It tore roof off several buildings around us. I think the storm is what wore me out. God kept us safe.

Walked outside this morning, not bad, cloudy and muddy though. Got my wild boys tonight.

Have a blessed day

That's terrific !!!! I am glad you had a good Easter break.

Somehow I managed to turn my pedometer app off today so I only ended up 7327 steps LOL imagine my surprise when I went to send steps to my daughter (we have a challenge that is on going ) And I had the same amount of steps after working in the yard and walking the dogs as I did at &AM SIGH Life happens HAHAHAHA
Have a great day !

I am glad you liked them Marty. I love the manatee We used to go see them in the river and at blue Springs.I love light houses too. I used to stop at all of them and climb to the top if they were open for it. Now not so sure I could do that anymore LOL I still have some sand dollars that were collected years ago. but like you have not found any in many years.

I worked in the garden today and have been doing so so on steps .Yesterday was a bust because the kids were here .
Hope you are staying busy at camp :)

Thank you

Yesterday was an epic trip home from Walmart massive thunderstorm with golf ball sized hail.No visibility, emergency vehicles everywhere.The sound was deafening I was so nervous. Got to my turn off the highway and there was a river .A truck and a car sitting on the other side waiting to cross ,the truck went first ,then the Camry,I was like okay PT we can do this . We did and the entire road was like a river gushing. I was like come on baby She stalled just as we pulled in the drive way. I was mentally exhausted . LOL I walk in the house and there is water in the dining room it was running in under both front doors. Finally got the critters out and the groceries in.
17145 step with giant balls of ice on the ground and 75* temp LOL The trees and plants are all torn up . All in all I see no major damage and I got home safe. Always feel so blessed.

Happy Easter

Back on, wow what a week off, we had a really bad storm last Wednesday afternoon, tornado warnings, the biggest streak if lightning to hit in front of the house, and the heaviest rain I have ever seen, it looked like we were submerged in a bowl of water, like a fish. Winds were so bad and they say tornado circling over head, small hail.We just stood at the door and watched.
Then the horizon began to lighten up, rain started to slow down, and clouds moving on, then the most awesome sunset, and everything was calm. I could see the hand of God in this, He was there with us in the storm and He was there afterwards and always will be. There was such a peace after this storm.

We had this croup going around to, so windy and wet Friday could not mow my front yard hay field. Saturday was grandsons birthday so we were with him all day, that was so good. Hope to "cut the hay" this evening when I get home.

Have a blessed day
