Its been an expensive week for me. Had to go to the emergency room to have my nose cauterized so it would stop bleeding. It was gross!!!!! My nose bled for at least an hour before it finally stopped. then yesterday I had dental surgery......no dental insurance. Sigh. Tomorrow, I am going to the beach. I know its going to be cold but I don't care. I love the beach:)
Happy Friday all

Hi team. Hope everyone has had a terrific Tuesday:) I went to a sports medicine clinic today for my foot. The podiatrist that I have been seeing has probably made it much worse for her mis-diagnosis and cortisone injections! I have tendonitis of the 2nd toe, a condition called pre-dislocation syndrome. Should be easily corrected with tape and a toe cushion. Sheesh. I am looking forward to being pain free!!!

Hi Aggie, So glad you are joining us!
I forgot my shawl at work, oops but it should still be there. Can't really see it disappearing. I really need to remember to grab my stuff though before I leave work. Still no heat on for me but I know it's coming soon

I still have tote full of yarn that I plan on doing something with soon but actual thought that maybe I should get rid of it.
When I'm on the phone and tablet the ads get in the way but when I'm on the library computer, they are staying on the side where the belong. Do you have your zoom up high?
Press control and scroll the mouse to adjust, maybe just need to move it out some?

Is the logo not good?

I could change it

Busy day at work but happy to get to the library today!

Just a quick question... What do you think of the SP ad covering up a chunk of the team logo when on the team spark page? Doesn't it seem as though they could put their ads on spaces NOT allocated to the 'teams' that they supposedly encourage? Maybe I am just tired and grumpy, and my feet are freezing, while the rest of me is just chilly. Hate to turn the furnace on it is still supposedly 68 degrees warm(?) in this house.

Hi team. Sorry I have been MIA but life got in the way. My husband and I are building a new horse barn, clearing land and getting ready for winter so haven't had much time to be on here. I was on vacation last week and got a lot of uncluttering done. Took a tote of yarn and crochet and knitting items to the Senior Center for them to use or sell. I have arthritis in my hands and can not do either anymore and didn't want to throw it all away. Wishing everyone a wonderful day and will post more often.

Hehe assembly line was it!
I did enjoy almost all day outside today. Got the granddaughter last night so we did yard work for most of the day. Still so much energy with the humidity. Then we went to the playground and tried to get rained on

Ah, yes. I do remember those chicken killing days myself. I grew up on a farm and we would butcher 100 ish chickens and 4 turkeys. We had a mini assembly line.
This week has been HOT! I am looking forward to lower humidity levels:)

I went with the bf to Pittsburg and went fly fishing. We stayed at his father's in a camper. We didn't bring a fan and it was pretty hot..... lol. Then we helped butcher chickens. (payment for use of camper is always help around the farm)

Things went smoother today but mostly because Fridays are slow days. Stopped at a sale tent in Georges mills and bought shoes and a shirt which always helps me feel better. Then off to get my hair done. Nothing like mowing the lawn with freshly styled hair!
We are headed to Pittsburg for the weekend for done relaxing fishing and de-stressing.

Sounds so exciting, I'm happy for you Doris!

Another rough day at work. Torn now with pressure to not get any overtime and still get everything done and co-workers who won't help out. I kind of had a crying jag on the way home today. The other girls are suppose to come over ten minutes before I leave so that I can wrap everything up and punch out on time. This week their team lead is gone so they are not helping out at all. I am not clocking out and then working on so I have overtime and my team lead says it has to stop. They haven't yet come up with a plan for this to happen but I am not allowed to leave things unfinished. I was fine until I went to go home and the team lead started talking to me about over time and questioning if I am punching in too early.
Plus someone complained that I was too rude and the manager said I will be getting a written warning. For such a fun new job..... it is surely turning downward and I don't want it too.
Sorry, I'm just venting....thanks for listening

My DD is coming at least once to visit. My niece might come too. My parents have their winter place about 45 minutes away from where we plan to be for Christmas. I can't wait!!!
I hope everyone stayed cool today. It seems like a long time since we had a day this hot and humid. Been a cool summer but it has been a good one.

So, our winter plans: we are casting off the dock lines and heading south towards Florida and the Bahamas. We plan to be back in May unless we find somewhere we really like and want to stay, then we won't be back!
This will be our largest, longest trip by ourselves, no help. But, we will have visitors throughout the winter.

What are your winter plans?
Mine are to turn up heat and bundle when going outside. lol

NHGRAMMYOF2 - they do kind of spring some of this stuff on us don't they? I will forward on to the sparkpeople that you do not like the new page.

I did so much this past weekend, that I think I need a day off just to recoup.
Blueberry picking, night fishing, weeding, sorting and cataloging albums in the garage, cleaning BF house (ugh...that is a dirty job)

I really hate it when I get unsubscribed! We went on a day sail today with some friends. It was amazing out there!!! Enough wind to move us along so it wasn't hot and just enough wave action to keep the kids happy:)

It's a great day to be in New Hampshire rain or no rain. Love that mountain air and the sea air!
I may not check in every day but I do feel better since I joined Spark People and I've lost almost 10 lbs.in 3 months. Not a huge giant loss but I'm happy with it and my progress!

I did not know that. Last week was Lempster old home day, before that was Cheshire fair, before that was unity's and this weekend is Cornish fair. I like the living history better!

Today I have a wedding to go to and tomorrow Guy wants to go to the fair. Maybe I can talk him into going to Hillsboro!

I like your twisted week, it should work well.

Having the grandkids are so much fun!

Sounds like the boat didn't behave but you didn't let any of it bother you.

I kept the grandson over night Friday and did some painting today with dancing tonight

We set sail this morning for the Isles of Shoals. Ended up having to motor as we have a twisted line for the main sail and found we were missing a bolt for the head sail. Sheesh. The bolt was an easy fix once we got here but the twisted line will have to wait until we get back to our home marina. DH has to go up the mast, in a bosun's chair, to fix the line. Oh well. So, we sunned and swam instead. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
Happy weekend all:)

So is the secret to have more STARTS to your week?
First the week starts with Sunday
the next morning the week starts with Monday
etc...
Think that might work?

Maybe do a reverse (twisted) pyramid of exercise like one of my teams had recently
they used repetitions of crunches, I used reps of bridges,
you can modify it to your desire.. minutes instead of repetitions...whatever...

Day 1 - 25 pause; 20 pause; 15 pause; 10 pause; 5 pause; 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 85 reps/minutes

Day 2 - 20 pause; 15 pause; 10 pause; 5 pause; 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 60 reps/minutes
Day 3 - 15 pause; 10 pause; 5 pause; 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 40 reps/minutes
Day 4 - 10 pause; 5 pause; 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 25 reps/minutes
Day 5 - 5 pause; 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 15 reps/minutes
Day 6 - 4 pause; 3, 2, 1 = 10 reps/minutes
Day 7 - 3, 2, 1 = 6 reps/minutes

I amazed myself I was successful!! I completed the whole week good form etc. I doubt very much if I would have been successful had the week NOT been "TWISTED"

Try it.. and let me know how you modified this and how it worked for you !!

Hugs, Audra

Being oh so inconsistent with my exercise. I start out the week with energy and lots of fitness minutes but end the week trying to talk myself into doing my ten minutes. Ugh......
Sat outside for lunch today but then had to go in to avoid the chill and raindrops.

Getting into a wet suit is, um, challenging. DH had to help me get the thing on! Once its on, its fine and getting out is relatively easy, just peel it off so its inside-out. Phew. Beautiful day today for sure!
Ran this morning, getting faster:)

Aren't they really hard to get into? Seems like all I can think of is the suit sticking to you like rubber gloves.

After the rain this afternoon, we finally have sun and it warmed up. I went out at lunch and went back in after 10 minutes, too cold

A rainy day today in Portsmouth. DH and I went wet suit shopping. I got one as I am the better swimmer so if anything needs to be done to the bottom of the boat, its my job. The water is pretty cold to stay in and try to do any work, so a wet suit it is!

Good thing for whistles Jackie.
I like the sidewalks with traffic but I also miss seeing the fox running across the road and the other wildlife.
It was so breezy when I got to work this morning, it was almost cool. but not quite, lol

I miss the wildlife I would encounter when we lived in a small town. But, I do love having sidewalks so I don't need to be as wary of cars. I like that I can run at night too! It sure is stinking hot today. Stay cool:)

I am heading out for my morning walk. Now, with an injured bear in the neighborhood, I will bring my whistle. They hate loud noises, so I am praying that it keeps the bear away.

Boating in the fog had got to be worse than driving in it. First stuff is bigger. It moved different and isn't quite so easy to avoid like braking a car is.
Work is going great for me. They had a chair yoga class in the rehab room tonight. My first actual yoga class, not video or flash cards, lol

The Vineyard was fun. I would go back:) Cheri, we did enjoy some wine but neither of us are big drinkers. Getting home was interesting. There was a bit of fog today. We left Gloucester this morning in blue skies and sunshine, had fog roll in for most of the trip home. Kinda spooky to be 8ish miles out to sea and only be able to see about 50 feet in front of you. The sun did come out as we got closer to our home port. Phew.
Happy work week all.

Yup I did it. Didn't get out on time.... the girls that are suppose to take over when I leave, didn't...so I tried to help people and got frustrated but took it out on the gym so it ended well. Hope you've made it to the vineyard and are enjoying the vines? Maybe moscoto?

Cheri, hope you did not jinx yourself:) We stayed put today and will do so again tomorrow as the seas and winds will be quite high. Thursday we are heading to Martha's Vineyard. I am excited because I have never been there!

Those waves must make for a long tiring day.
I am starting to think that I'm getting the hang of it here at work. I am not rushing at the end of the day to get everything done. I actually clocked out right on time with no paperwork still on my desk, yippee!
(course tomorrow will change all that now that I've said something)

I thought the seas were lumpy yesterday. I was mistaken. They were VERY lumpy today!! Actually, they were only 5 feet but close together so we crashed through them. At least it wasn't very long. Buzzards Bay was interesting. We are about half way down the bay and will continue on Wed. morning as we head to Martha's Vineyard. Glad we are not moving tomorrow!!

We left Portsmouth on Saturday, around 1:30 (had to wait for a tide change) and headed to Gloucester. It was a bit windy and the seas where lumpy. Made for a long sail as we did not arrive in Gloucester until 9PM or so. Dinner was late but yummy. Left Gloucester around 10 this morning and we are now in Plymouth, MA. Got here around 6:30, again gusty winds and lumpy seas. Tomorrow we hope to get an earlier start toward Kingman Marina in Catuamet, MA to stay for two nights to visit family, then off to Martha's Vineyard. Good so far:)
Have a great work week all.

It was humid but so much better after that little rain. The kids came over for a bbq. Sort of last minute but it worked well, only sprinkled until after we were done eating. Then we came in to play a card game. A nice well rested day.

I took the manual mower out last night and tackled my tiny yard. Maybe 20 minutes tops, lol.
Trimmed the lilac tree and weeded the flower barrels flanking the steps,too.

I bought new shorts (1 pair) 2 weeks ago and I am happy to say that they are too big now!! I need to wear a belt with them and I don't need to unbutton/unzip to take them off:)
Humid and sticky out. Blech. I mowed my parent's lawn today, only took 2 hours. I do like Dad's riding lawn mower:)

Cheri, looks like we will have to try for a swap next week. Dad has been admitted to the hospital and probably will be there a while. Mom can't drive at night or on the highway so I get to play driver.
Hope everyone is staying cool during this nasty humidity.

Today was a beach day. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how "warm" the ocean felt. My body did not shiver immediately on getting wet:) I think just about half of NH's population was at the beach today with us. Crowded!!!
