Morning friends,

Kelpie, thank you for the coffee. I love knowing you were here.

Mary- Yay...your son has met another landmark goal. Fun and sad I bet. I loved having the older children depend upon me for transportation. Great chatting time.

Dan- Last night ...I must have dozzed off...sheesh. But this morning...wow a breakfast spread for royalty. That's how to wake up! Real food! Thanks!

Kay- Tired. Rest day. Good idea. I suspect tomorrow the slopes should be less crowded due to the big game. Feels like spring. Crazy. Could be a spectacular view to ski tomorrow. They are predicting 78 for the south bay on Tuesday! What????

OK...I am gong to spend the entire weekend outside if I can. Beautiful Beautiful. Hope we return to winter tho...

Sounds like quite the breakfast feast this morning! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon maybe add a little fruit to the table?

Larry had wanted to go skiing today, but I was very tired last night from a grueling CrossFit, so he offered to go tomorrow instead. Gives me time to hit the grocery store and stock back up, the fridge and cupboards are depleted! We has surprise guests Thursday night, my aunt and uncle from Minnesota came through town on the way to my dad's, so we scrounged up enough to feed them! Really nice visit!

Kelpie thanks for the flask, it may keep me going on the trails!

Thanks for joining me and bring the flask with you last night Mary, hey we have fresh coffee made for us I'll throw a big black pot of shrimp grits on the fire and fry up some fresh catfish to go along with it I got a feeling there will be a lot more folks showing up here on the DECK this morning that will be hungry also.

Enjoy

I'll meet you there Dan! - with a flask full of Williams - one shot, a short soak & I'll be climbing into a hammock to rest up for a busy weekend!

Son turns 17 tomorrow & has Bball game (had one tonight as well)...he would be playing guitar in an afternoon gig at really cool ocean front bar as well but time conflicts with rescheduled Bball game ):

Yippee he survived his restricted license period without a citation or accident so he now has a real drivers license!

Then Super Bowl! We lived in CLT when the team started & are original season ticket holders...we won lottery for SB tickets! But sadly with all that's going on we couldn't make the cross-country journey.. Better view on friend's tv anyway! Go Panthers!

Pura Vida!

I see the hip flask was filled up on the DECK Mauimia, thanks KELPI great idea I'll take it down to the hot tub tonight, I am guessing KAY will be there soaking from her fast down hill ski runs, I haven't heard a train whistle from the DECK yet but when I go hotsprining in Montana I hear the trains whistle several times during the night where I camp, the coffee this morning was really awesome CHOC! This summer I would like to roast some in the new wood fired oven I made this last year, I'll bring some to the DECK and perk it while the pouch is lying next to the old rocker...lanterns are singing along with the crickets ahhh love the friends and warm water on the DECK.

enjoy
Dan

Choc- waterproof fit bit! Haha...YES! I have a waterproof-ish phone even. I cannot be trusted with anything else! Technology and I have to be well matched, which means I need to have rugged gear. My hubby teases me till this day, since my first cell phone I dropped into teh pig water trough. My second cell phone, Into the pig pen mud/muck. My 3rd cell phone got wet in teh veggie garden. Henceforth, I get used hand-me downs from the family as they upgrade. First time in years, I now have a new phone. Hope I can eep it safe....lol. So...'I hear you'.!

Kelpie- yes...'in person' real life experience...memorable. period. So, yes please for tonight! Apricot and plum please. ;)

Dan, what'll you have?

Jo-oh yes...together with chocolate...oh my yes.

Kay- Hehe...that's a lot of flights! Join us tonight?

oh Kelp you are funny --yep needed but avoided whilst babysitting the grands ..
I would love the apricot ---hmmm since I am a chocoholic I would be interested in chocolate flavor .. teehee...

Really though I am doing a sugar detox challenge here -- and so blew it today ... went out with a group of gals for my sister's 65th birthday -- and one of the gals made a cake -- will add a picture later .. it was done with butter cream --- every part edible..
talk about off the track..

Kay I only have the fitbit 1 ... I have the spark fitness tracker which is water proof but not track movement in the water -- so disappointing..
I love my stair counter as live in a 3 story (somewhat) home and walk many flights of stairs ... killing the knees softly.. lol..

everyone have a great evening

It's already evening here, so I'll roll out some of Jacques "eau de vie"

I may have said in the past, but there are lots of new people so even if I have, it's worth repeating myself. Here in France you can distill fruit, as long as it grows in your garden! We go by the spriti of the law, as it were, and so one of the flavours we have is apricot, even though Jacques only had one apricot tree. There is a portable still that goes round the various villages, and you pay tax on what you produce....although it can be difficult to check on the exact amount at times.

So there's a choice of apple, plum, pear, apricot, plus varous other flavours, usually based on apple, with added thyme, fir, chilli peppers.....

So, a great help with stress Mary, and Maui (you're the one who has actually tried a couple in real life).
As for the chaps, Dan, Neil and Wood, a hip flask helps you make friends, even if not influence people.
Kay, a hip flask might be useful after the slipping.
And Jo, maybe to be avoided whilst babysitting. Or maybe needed then?
Choc, I wonder if we could make a chocolate flavoured one????
Snow, fancy a wee snifter.

So what I suggest is singing round the camp fire tonight, who's bringing an instrument, and mellowing out with some home made hooch!

Morning Deckies!
OK...I had to dash off again a couple days to help my son. (More infor over on the goal setting thread) Anyhow, back and hitting my list.

I read all the posts, caught up, but dashing off, since I am yet again behind.
But happy to be back to the deck.

Thanks for taking care of the place while I was gone.

Dan, I just love the lanterns...makes it really feel like home.
See you at the hot tub tonight! I am ready!
Who is joining us tonight?

Taking a little train ride right now to my little home town in the swamp lands! Smile on my face because I love the sound of the train whistle!

There's been some great discussion here about making ourselves do things we really don't want to do and some great advice!

I have been horrible lately about procrastinating, taking care of absolute necessities but ignoring everything else...& not taking very good care of myself...when friends ask how I lost weight breakfast & walking is the advice I give...haha I never could get one of my buddies to take that advice & it always perplexed me but now that I fell off the wagon I can really understand...sometimes we know what's right for us we just don't do it...time to really make the effort to get back to my "A" game!

I love fruit & veggie smoothies made with grapefruit...I'll whip up s batch & serve them poolside! If you can't enjoy irl you can still enjoy on deck!

Have a great day!

Pura Vida!
Mary

I got 127 floors skiing on Tuesday, lots of ups and downs! It was great, snowed for part of it...I wasn't really expecting that! But so pretty. They had opened up Ana's Chute, a double black diamond...I ended up side slipping down most of it, but did finally straighten myself out at the end and got a fun downhill going!

I'll have some coffee this morning, Choc! Thanks for the offer.

Neil, swimming sounds like a relief from the heat! emoticon

Mary, glad the stress didn't have any lasting effect, what a roller coaster! Your son's coach sounds like a character, and a character builder!

Jo, which fitbit do you have? I just got a Charge HR (Not the waterproof one) to replace my One that died when I went snorkeling with it.

Dan, enjoy those groomed trails!

And Kelpie, sorry I missed the libations last night!

Lola... The Fitbit that I bought is a "waterproof" version of the Fitbit HR Charge... A company called "Waterfi" does the waterproofing, and the advantage (even tho it's more expensive than the regular Fitbit Charge HR) is that I can wear it swimming, kayaking, scuba diving etc without worrying about it being ruined by getting wet.... Not sure if it will track swim laps or water aerobics ... Haven't tried that yet... The "stair count" issue is the one drawback to getting the waterproof version though because according to their website they have to disable that function in order to waterproof it (in my case, that function seems to just add a whole bunch of "stair flights climbed" when in fact I didn't climb any, LOL! One day it actually recorded 55 stair flights climbed! ... Not that I'd ever be that ambitious, LOL)... Anyway, all the other functions seem to be working as they should, so I'm happy with the purchase
... It's definitely motivating me to get back out hiking!

And speaking of getting back out, it's time for the pooch and me to head out for our morning walk... Be back later (I'll leave a fresh pot of coffee here on the deck for anyone that needs a morning "caffeine wake up"

My DECK friends have been out hiking and step climbing you must be tired out from the STEPS, I'll light the lanterns down to the hot tub and crawl into the cellar and get some of that old wine out of the oak barrel and bring you all a half coconut shell full to relax with in the hot tub and pick you some tunes on the guitar this evening.

Enjoy

So hot yesterday and I was melting playing tennis. When we got home the thermometer in the living room was showing 37.5 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit). It's supposed to be hotter today, so my exercise this morning was an hour in the pool swimming lengths.

Happy Wednesday afternoon deckies!!!

I'm lucky that I don't suffer physical symptoms from acute stress often but I sure did earlier this week...and the event that caused the stress wasn't by any means serious - not like dealing with loss or serious illness - it was because son's crazy basketball coach got himself into some hot water with the refs last Friday night and it looked like he would be suspended for at least a game and when I emailed him Sunday to wish him luck with his appeal (and tell him to keep himself out of trouble from now on!) he responded that if he lost his appeal the school might fire him...when I awoke Monday the muscles on the left side of my back had become a knotted mess...it hurt to take deep breathes...I had 2 tutoring sessions in the a.m. then time for a quick lunch and walk...then a 3 hour shift at high school welcome desk...I have never found that desk chair uncomfortable but Monday it was like sitting in a torture chamber - hit my back at just the wrong place...I was so happy when son came home Monday night with news that high school league officials disagreed with refs ruling and coach was "innocent" so no suspension or job lost...by Tuesday morning I had only a small amount of residual soreness in back and could breathe freely without pain...good thing because last night's game was 90 minutes away and I didn't get home until after 11...

with coach there to lead the boys (and by lead I mean stand up and scream at them the entire game emoticon ) they beat an undefeated team and are now tied for 1st in their division! This coach is quite a character - in his late forties, 6' 7" Irish Catholic (luck of the Irish saved him from this pickle? emoticon ) from upstate New York with his head completely shaved (he had a thick head of black hair until last spring when he shaved it in honor of a high school friend who was undergoing chemo for breast-cancer - that speaks to the kind of guy he is)...he's just a good person for son to have in his life and I did not want to think of son playing next year without Coach Kelley - that would be very sad for us and for coach - he's a single guy so this team means so much to him - he cares about their play but also their grades, nutrition, social media, all of it...very traditional, stereotypical New York basketball coach...he wears suit and tie to all game and makes his players wear dress shirts and ties for the entire school day on game days!

Anyway, sorry so long, but point of story is it's crazy to me how my body can physically tie itself in knots just because I'm worried about someone - even if that someone is not a relative or very close friend. Luckily when the problem is solved the knot dissolves.

So big sigh of relief here and Kelpie - yes, please Jacques distillations!

Pura Vida and Cheers!
Mary

Jo, my mum can't have grapefruit either, and says there are times she just really really fancies some!

Maui, I regret we didn't get a sophro done when you were here, it can help with sleep. I'll have to try and record one and send it to you.

Whoops I didn't finish this post this morning, and it's bedtime now.

I'll pour a nightcap

Whisky or one of Jacques distillations? You choose!

Morning Deckies!

Had to go get a new phone yesterday...
Old one wouldn't hold a charge & if I tried to use it outdoors in cold weather it would just turn off (not good when I'm out hiking alone and might need to use the phone for an emergency!)

Took my pooch for a walk at a nearby park... Only a mile "loop" around a few ponds, but at least we got a bit of exercise! Hoping to hike some state game areas this morning (areas near my old home that I'm familiar with)...Still haven't "explored" State Land trails near my new home... Waiting for a friend who is familiar with those areas to show me some of the trails.

Recently bought myself a "Fitbit" activity tracker... Gotta start working on getting more "steps" in each day!!! (I've been a "slacker" on that lately)... This tracker also records heart rate, calories, food, sleep etc ... Pretty interesting! (Supposed to also moniter stairs climbed but that function seems to be "messed up" cause it always says I've "climbed" more flights than I actually did!... Oh well, that part isn't really needed for my activities so I'm just ignoring that "glitch"

Anybody get hit with all those storms that went through the last day or so? Everything pretty much missed us (in fact we're having really unusually warm weather for the past week)... Hope everyone is safe from bad weather!

Gotta go get a few chores done before I can head out to hike... Be back later! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

No snow so far, but it is cloudy! The prediction is snow showers, not much accumulation, so we are going skiing today, Larry is waxing the skis then will make omelettes from the veggies I chopped up...

As far as getting things done, I think you have to figure out the biggest priority, give that your focus early. If you wait it won't get done, since our willpower is in limited supply and evaporates over the day...at least that's what the books say! And don't overload yourself with a lot of tasks....it has to be doable, or it won't get done!

Morning Deckies!
Groundhog Day here in the U.S.
Shadows anyone??

Kelpie and Jo-
I can just picture Jacques babysitting. I have several friends with grandkids close by and are babysitting. As a team, its not so exhausting, but alone...wow...everyone talks about fatigue. The non stop responsibility. Jo, rest when you can. You'll need a break after 3 days. Hugs from afar.

Kelpie-Yes, my mind is keeping me scattered and awake. I did plenty of tree trimming and weeding yesterday. It was cold and windy. I thought that might help me sleep. Nope. Then, I hate to wake hubby, so I lay and ponder...sheesh.

Kay- Its raining here again! I had no idea...lol. Maybe you'll get a touch more snow.

How to get ourselves to do what we don't want to? Oh, Maui, if only I had the answer! I am such a procrastinator, and have various tasks hanging over me! Flylady's timer can help, I can do it for 15 minutes, and then go onto something else. However recently I haven't even been using that. You are inspiring me at a distance to get my timer out and get onto that list!

And above all, and this goes for all of you, be kind to yourself. What would you advise a friend to do. And if it is rest, then do it!

Stress! Don't we all know about that one! I think we'll be lining up for that massage.

Kay, any skiing yet?

Mary, how are you today?

Neill, your summer activities are such a contrast to our winter ones.

Jo, we had gd overnight, and then Jacques had her for the day. He was tired after. So three days is a lot.

Wood, how's the trip going?

Snow, looking forward to seeing more of you.

Choc, decided on a gym yet?

Anyone I've missed, there's an extra pain au chocolat to make up for it.

Fresh fruit juice anyone?

Have a great day

RG is Royal Gorge, the ski area we have passes to. They closed the main lodge area, a bridge on the way had flooded out! Larry says it was on the news, the folks that live up there in the Serene lakes homes were stuck with the flood, but it sounds like Cal Trans was able to get it under control.

No skiing today, I thought it would be good to give them another day to get the area fixed up, so we're going tomorrow....and that way I got to CrossFit tonight, so I don't have to do another 2 days in a row like I have the past couple of weeks! Give my muscles a chance to recover a bit.

Glad you are getting a winter garden going, Maui! I know you missed it this past summer...

Jo, rest up, sounds like you need it!

Mary, how's that massage feeling? Lowering the stress level?

Kelpie, loved the porridge this morning, we are pretty soggy here too, it does hit the spot!

Mary- Ahhhh...Bread day. Hehe. Hope things settle down with son's coach etc. Stress is rough. ((hugs))

Jo- Yes! I have grown yams, Beauregard variety. Amazing! The do need warm temps, regular water and a long season. Last year it was a 'no go' due to drought. So we will see. But yams are a favorite food of mine. Yum! Right now I am focusing on this cool season veggies I can grow before June. Then, we will see.
Like Kay said, is there any chance you can re-figure how to use your 'hunting stuff'?

Been trimming the last of my fruit trees. They are trying to bud out, my plums will be first.
With all the rain , after the drought, growth explosion happening, 'The race is on'.

Hey all...quick drop by then I've got to get some dinner going...

This time I'm the one in need of a massage table...wish it was because I've been working my muscles but nope it's stress brought on by of all things an ongoing saga involving son's basketball coach...but son just walked in with some good news...maybe my back will loosen up on its own now!

Son home means time to head to the kitchen (where bread day was last Thursday!)

Have a great night everyone!

Pura Vida!

Happy February Deckies!

Kelpie- fly by's, any visit, is fabulous from you my friend. Thank you for the hot breakfast! Just what I needed. Cold wind here today.
Coffee...helped warm my hands (I forgot my gloves for my morning walk, silly me)
Corrections eh? More and more...ongoing...you know, seems we all must have these aspects of our lives that are seemingly for-evering. I hear you.
I sure hope that cold leaves you ASAP. Darn colds!

What are the tricks?

Deckies...how to we make ourselves do those things we have to do, but are in a spell finding we don't want to?? Ideas?

Jo- Those kids and gkids are sure lucky. I bet you all are.

Neil- hehe...great weekend! A break from the rain, nice. And a botanical garden. You know I'd love that, right?

Mary- Yesterday was bread day, so of course you were on my mind.
Dan you too! Have you used your new starter yet??? Anxious to hear how you fare. What flour are you using to feed?

Kay- Maybe you are off today to ski. Bet its pretty. Windy though??? Windy here, not as bad as late yesterday.
We are having solar installed today. Sunny day.
You said, "they closed RG", what does that mean?
And yes, some iconic restaurants down here. we visited David Kinch. Oh my...talk about a memory making experience. Still basking in the glow.

Yesterday I planted my potatoes. red and yukon gold. Should be yummy. Garlics look fabulous. Already have cilantro pickable. Baby steps. It's starting to feel some recovery.

Choc- LOL...not in the front yard yet. Looks like a war zone. But the herbs out back are happy campers.

OK...Happy Monday!

A fly by I'm afraid, just the time to lay out breakfast. it's damp here, so maybe porridge?
And coffee, lots of coffee!

Hope everybody had a great weekend.

Great weekend with my boys (My wife was off in Queenstown) We did a few bike rides, the peninsula walk out at Karitane, hung out on the beach, dinner in the botanical gardens, hung out with a few friends and generally took advantage of the fact it wasn't raining for the first time in a week.

hi everyone

Hasn't it been crazy weather again this winter --- today we are having some rain.. then by Thursday a big snow storm again.. no wonder we are all getting colds and such..

No new hunting buddies I am afraid .. that is okay ... something new will come along I can enjoy.

Everyone have a great day

No skiing for me this weekend, but I'm going to trudge through the snow (will break in my new goretex hiking shoes) and work for a few hours, so we can maybe go skiing tomorrow or Tuesday (I'm hoping Tuesday, so I can get back to the normal CrossFit routine). They closed RG today, flooding, if you can believe it! I guess it rained up there yesterday...today it's snowing, supposed to snow all day here, and we have 4 inches already! Maybe I should wear my snowshoes to work!

Dan, no soup yet, but I'm thinking about chicken soup, maybe chicken and farro, (since I have some farro), but I have a whole chicken in the crockpot cooking away today, so I'll have a lot of cooked chicken to work with!

Jo, sorry you got all that new gear and nowhere to go with it! Any chance you can find some new hunting partners?

Kelpie, maybe you need some of the chicken soup now? emoticon

I would say we got some good cooks and bakers on this site -- awesome love hearing about all the creations.

and we have some very fit people -- awesome.. me not so much cook or workout queen.. I love my walking and swimming type outdoor activity.

I had just bought all new hunting clothing .. and was told my hunting days are over.. not even able to do my camping ... My sister and her husband are the ones we always go with...but with her turning 65 and her hubby being 66 they said this will be their last year..Guess I will be selling my stuff --sigh --- one chapter closing hoping a new one will open soon..

hey spun for the team got 50 points today --woot woot

Good afternoon from snowy north Idaho, JO - heck ya enjoying life here as well I got got back last night from some Montana Hotsprings!

MARY - MAUI The lady that I work most of the summer for had me help her move out of her new house back into her old house last weekend and cooked me some sourdough bread and flapjacks then gave me some of her Klondick sourdough starter, I always wanted to but have never taken the time to use the sponge before now I am excited to start as soon as I replenish my good flour supply. My ears (eyes) open for any tips!
Four and a half hour dinner marvelous, lucky guy!

CHOC - Salted Carmel Chips...what's your address again! mmmmm My mom gave me a old fluorescent hat the other day so when I would like to hike during hunting season like yourself I'll be seen hopefully.

DesBLOOM - where do you get to hike at close by?

KAY - Are you enjoying the new snow on your skis this weekend? What kinda yummmy soups are you making for this week, I am going to put togeather a barley soup with some left over smoked pork I made, with Okra, peas, green beans, celery, little bit of corn, carrots, homemade salsa.

WOOD - Enjoy
Dan

Work and rain yesterday...good day for CrossFit! I managed to get it done, and a new PR for front squat, 110 lbs...lots of PRs on the board yesterday, I noticed!

It snowed last night, makes the world look so pretty! Maui, I think it's not supposed to be much accumulation, so maybe not such a bad weekend for a ski? I'm not sure about the mountains, but not so good for cross country. Monday is supposed to be a break in the storm. Glad you got out hiking! And treated DH to a nice dinner, you have so many choices over there, iconic restaurants I'd love to try...sounds delightful!

I'm going to put in another plug for the one week at a time thread...post a goal, get some encouragement, encourage your teammates! It's fun!

Happy Friday evening Deckies!

I made it out on a hike! Went to one of my favorite places. Had to get into the hills. I went by myself , but there were many folks out there and I didn't to the back side hills, stayed on the front side where most folks are. The soil was soft of my feet from all the rain, but not too muddy. The air are fresh cool and clean. My eyes got to search out the distances and rework my brain. Just what I needed.

KB-half days, warmer weather and a picnic...wow...good for you. How's the teaching going?

Kay- Yes...weekend storms. Hmmm. We have seen this before. My younger son is headed up for a ski /snowboard weekend. He's gonna have some rough weather I think.
Too bad.
It's nice you can, at times, rework your schedule. Nice.

Last night I took hubby out for dinner. I made the reservation 3 months ago. It was for a bd dinner. Hubbies bd was 9 days earlier, but this way I knew the family activities would be free. Hubby has wanted to eat at this place for 13 years, and we have never made it. Well we did. He was one happy camper. The chef is beyond words. 24 small courses with wine pairings, meal lasted 4.5 hours. Memorable bd for him.

We're supposed to have rain and snow for the next few days...Not sure why we can't have a nice sunny weekend! Maybe next week? I may flex my schedule again, since there is supposed to be a break on Monday (again), so if I can work part of Sunday and take off early on Monday, I may give it a go!

Snow.... Hey good to see you on the Deck! Yup, I'm pretty much all settled in at my new home and looking forward to the warmer weather and all the flower & veggie gardens in my new yard. As for my old home, yup, I have days I miss my neighbors (although the neighbors here are very nice, I miss visiting with the neighbors I knew for over 20 years)... I also REALLY miss being able to just walk out my door to hike the back roads and trails around my old home... here at the new home I have to get in the car and drive to the nearest trails... only a few minutes drive, but I find I don't "get out" as much as I did when I could just walk out the door... Hoping that once I get a chance to explore some of the State Game area trails near here I'll get back to hiking more often

Kelpie... thanks for the coffee! Needed the "wake me up" this morning!

Wood... hope your rainy weather changes to more sunshine for your trip! (I know you and Gloria will have fun, rain or shine!)

Maui... raining there too? Hope all is going well with all your yard work and gardening!

Think I'll do some baking today... homemade granola bars and maybe some cookies (found some "salted caramel baking chips" that I'm going to try instead of regular chocolate chip cookies.... I'll let y'all know how that works out....trying not to think about the calories, LOL)

Coffee anyone? I'm having hot lemon and honey, so you're welcome to that too.

I'm hoping I'll be better enough tomorrow for a walk at the very least.
Jury's still out for aqua tonight.

Neill, after the really cold snap a fortnight ago, it's unseasonably warm again. So things are a bit topsy turvy.

Hope everyobdy gets out and about if that's what they wish.

I'll just stick to the virtual hot tub for the moment,

Hi all, is the sun shower still up and running on the deck? I think I need a good couple of hours in it. It's been raining here now for 5 days straight with temperatures around 14 Celsius (57 Fahrenheit) We're supposed to be in summer!!

Snow- Hearts...YES!

Kelpie- sorry about the cold. Darn! Good you are taking care. The fire time last night was just what I needed.

It should be gorgeous.

Hello all, with a special mention for Snow..

Yep, hearts and showing our love, great idea!

I didn't go to aqua today, as I have a cold, and thought it really wasn't a sensible thing to do....

So i'm off to make myself a hot toddy,and heading to bed.

In my mind I'll be wrapped in a blankie with my friends round a roaring fire...

Anyone to join me?

Since it started getting a lot warm and raining more I am hiding out in some Hotspring over in Montana for a few days until the weather gets colder and SNOWs for more winter fun.

Well I made it thru Double Step class, X Bike, now waiting for Yoga to wind it all down . Gorgeous sunny day in the El Dorado Hills, can see the Snow covered Sierras begging me to visit, to come play. Then rain again on the weekend.... Planning to finally get to the last unpacking of things pushed aside from our move here last June- mostly all clothes, did I mention Xmas and the tree are down?? Red roses on my table, hearts appearing here and there.
My goals now are to get back into some sort of routine that also includes my DH - doing more hikes together, starting with snowshoeing Donner Lake tomorrow.

How are you feeling in your new home and location Choc? Do you have " those days" where you miss the other? Or just sort of an overwhelmed feeling due to the change? I have to fight off worries for the future sometimes.... Wondering sometimes and doubts creep in, lose a nights sleep.... And then it passes and I'm happy again.... Never wanting to look back , no regrets. Funny we both took on that huge challenge in 2015.

My latest thing is joining Wood on Words with Friends... Still getting the hang of it, lots of questions.... Like how do you know when the game is over??!! Lol!! We get some cute side comments in as well... Making me try a bit harder .... wood has this game down for sure!!
Hoping you are a bit warmer in Florida ... You there yet???
Gtg- Yoga starting... Hello to everyone!!!!!!!!
Luv, ***SNOW***

Hearts! Love Love Love!

Snow- I am so happy to have your sweet self here for a visit. You are truly missed. I am sorry you have much on your heart. Sister, we are here, Love you and happier when you are here too.

Kay- Legs...yes yes yes. I hear you...I am not doing anything so impressive...But...I can feel them legs! I walked 4 miles this morning, stretched last night and this morning...and even after walking my hamstrings were talking back..hahaha...yep...winter rains weeding season!

Today is a long long day for me. My older son has a new doc appt again, long long day ahead. Time to keep my stress in check! Anyhow...we will see how this goes and what the new doc says are options. 5 hours of driving too...but beautiful day, music to sing with in the car, and hopefully some good news.
Ok...I'll try and check in when I return, otherwise I'll see you all tomorrow.





Become the change you wish to see in the world.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon love the hearts decorating the staircase, Snow! Glad you found your way to the deck!

I got in the running yesterday, I did step-ups instead of box jumps (legs were just a little heavy still!) but it was still a good workout! Lots of wall balls too....

Happy Wednesday!

Helllllllo there Deckies!! It's SNOW here! So great to finally touch bases with you all, I'm up on all your posts, your always in my thoughts.... And I feel as tho I'm sneaking around up in the tree fort watching the pool parties, laughter coming from rides on LIFE, listening to the chatter in the hot tub, and I really just need a little trip over to Ben Frien... To unload some stress, drop off a touch of fear and negativity and shrug off any left over bad feelings so u can be more open and free to live life with the gusto I my heart!

Love❤️❤️❤️ ***SNOW

❤️speaking of. H E A R TS.
I'll be dressing up the staircase with hearts and red tinsel, letters spelling ❤️L O V E❤️ randomly hidden here and there.... Thinking we should all be thinking of the one(s) we love, and showing our LOVE throuought January and all the way to Valentines Day ( and beyond hopefully!!!) tell someone special that you love them❣better yet-- Show Them!! It will make them wear a smile and the joy will spread to others. Doesn't get much better than that!!
It's late or I would write more. Be good, and Wood!! You be safe on those roads, see you on Words...... Nitey my friends.....*

Evening all,

Kelpie, the fruit was perfect! Dreaming of spring here, with all the rain, everything is trying to bud out. CRAZY!
But the fruit is a perfect reminder of what is soon to come!
Yum!

Neil- How'd today go? I see you went swimming! Excellent. I thought of you today while I was out in the garden...I have no currents. But I have garlic growing like crazy. and tonight I picked cilantro for my veggie dinner.

Jo- Tigger eh? Hehe...I usually think of me as Tigger too! How were the grandkids? Hopefully everyone had fun and got done what they needed to get done! When do you go back to doc? I am sorry, I forget where you are in the 'testing'.

Kay- Yes, Kanga is a good fit for you. (And yes, a girl) I think she is the maternal sensible one, organized and patient. You do look after us all quite well here, so this fits. When Kanga first arrived, the others thought she was fierce. But soon found how kind hearted she was. Also fitting. Strong Kay, warm heart.
Skipping burpees sounds just fine to me. How does the running feel??
Glad you got in a ice ski.

Mary- More taxes???? wow...that's been going on a long time, right? How was it outside? I went out and weeded 5 hours straight...lol...I am going to have what I call Weeders legs tomorrow! Whoa...Not in condition for weeding! (Made a lot of progress.)

Well my friends, I am exhausted. Shower time and then my book.
