Barb, so far my book is really interesting. It's supposed to be a thriller so time will tell if I get thrilled or not. Teehee! Boy are you a lucky girl for such an easy day! Hahahaha!

DH and I are staying home and we have been working in the backyard. We cleared out an area behind my shed today. We want to design a covered area for his gas bikes. I think he had four at the last count. I know he is going to sell a couple of them but not yet.

We are going to have grilled chicken, corn on the cob and I am not sure what else. Watermelon does sound good though!

Kathy are you staying in town for the weekend or did you high-tail it again? :)

What is everyone else up to? Where are you guys? Teehee!!!

Hi Christine, how's the book? I'm currently reading, What We Find, by Robyn Carr. Just finished The Steel Kiss by Jeffrey Deaver.

Spent the day getting my grocery shopping done and then sitting on the patio reading my book. Tomorrow DH is BBQ'ing some steaks while I take it "easy" by only having to cook the onions, mushrooms and corn on the cob. And cutting up the watermelon. Lucky me to have such an easy day, right? LOL!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Kathy, you probably have a 5k that day. emoticon

I took the day off from work yesterday. After my morning workout, I sat on my patio and read my book. Fell asleep a couple of times too. Felt great to sit and do a whole lot of nothing!

June 4 at the zoo at 10:00, I believe is very doable for me. Of course at my advanced age I could be forgetting something. emoticon

Looking forward to our group walk.

I entered it in my calendar too. I'll send kelli a message when it's not so late!

Christine, I did go walking. Did a 5k with my work out partner. And we made it before it started raining! Then we came back and did some yoga. It was good for my IT band.

Ran my errands today - including getting new windshield wipers installed. Needed them today!

June 4th it is! Does 10:00 at the zoo work? We can plan another walk/hike later InThe month.

Kelli, I will define let you know. Love your new profile pic! Looking forward to the pics of the trailer.

Christine, looking forward to your pics too!

My friend and I walked outside today. Made it home before it poured! And, got my shopping done between rain showers. Hoping for the same luck tomorrow. Planning to walk to the library.

Quick fly by.... My DH did a cargo trailer conversion too! :) We mostly use the Jayco trailer though. Our small cargo trailer is for birding areas that are hard to get too! Can't wait for a picture of yours!!! So much fun! I will try to get a picture of ours too!

Well you know me for organized walks.... I can't really be sure about this one either. We had to put a lot on hold for a while now.

Today I saw my first Summer Tanager.... So pretty!

Hi Everyone,

I really need to check in here more often! Looks like everyone is out and about enjoying the spring weather, even in the rain.

Christine - We took a Utility Trailer that my husband had and we are making it into a trailer that we can camp in and put the jet ski in. I am so looking forward to lots of camping this summer. It will be big enough for the three of us to move around comfortably, but not huge. If it rains we will be able to play games and watch movies as my husband is rigging up a tv and dvd player. He put a tiny kitchen in and we have a tiny couch/bed for us and then he is making Blake a bunk. I will post pictures when it gets a little more "done."

Walking/hiking I can probably do the 4th. Barb if I don't check back in here, will you please send me a text when the time gets closer? Pretty please?

I can't believe the month of May is almost over....

Gotta get back to work.

I can't do the 28th either.

that is going to be a very busy weekend. Starting Friday night we are celebrating my brother's 70th Birthday, then on Saturday a celebration for my uncles 90s birthday and my aunts 85th birthday. Then it is on to Middleton for my niece's graduation.

I know I am forgetting something on that weekend but I don't know what or when I can squeeze it in unless it is something on Sunday.

This Saturday is the famous potato race so this spud is running in it. Right now they are predicting rain, I hope they are wrong.

Sorry the giraffes did not poke their head outs but I am sure if you go enough you will eventually get a look-see

Christina I hope you are feeling better.

Barb it is about time to start thinking not only walk in the park but some hikes.

I wish that I worked/lived close enough to walk the greenbelt every day! But then I would have to be downtown more. I'm okay with where I am now.

Hope everyone is feeling better and stays healthy.

Rachael, you are so lucky to be near that area to walk! I love to walk there because of the shade, zoo and yes the rose garden is lovely! Also so happy it is giving you a mental break and making you feel better. Right now the only fitness I am getting is walking. Although I know I should add some strength to my fitness routine.

Christine, sorry to hear that you haven't felt well the last couple of days but I'm glad you are feeling better today. emoticon

Kathy, I walked by the zoo today. It was beautiful but no giraffes wanted to come out of their shade and poke their heads up! emoticon

Loved the rose garden that is close by also! The nice thing is that this is in walking distance from where I work and I can do a 1.5 mile circle in 30-45 minutes. Normally, I have a hard time making myself take a break and will often work through lunch. However, the few times I have gotten out for a walk at lunch, my entire day has felt more focused. Also, with having the blood clot in my leg I think not going for a daily walk is no longer an option! Which is a blessing in an odd sort of way.

Working 10 to 12 hour days this week. This happens some months when we are trying to close the previous accounting month. I had a good streak of months where I didn't need to work much overtime to make it happen for my accounts... Guess every streak has to come to an end or it wouldn't be a streak...

Anyway, I hope you all are having a great week!!

The rain is good, but I still like the sun better. Got my plants moved from small containers into larger ones. Now to fertilize so they can grow and produce!!

Did we figure out a Saturday that works for a walk?

Christine the rain is nice but it does interfere with my walking.
I raced the rain drops today, twice. This morning and this evening.

Raced the rain and I won, probably won't win the race again but a win is a win.

Sleep deprivation is affecting my brain! Gotta do something quick! I suspect I had two "micro sleep" episodes, the second one yesterday and not aware of it. What if it happens while I am driving! ;-[ I am looking into acupuncture and naturopathic doctors here.

Kathy that is a scary image!!! Hope you find some good shoes soon! :)

emoticon Hi everyone. DH had to take our Jeep in to get the water pump fixed. Well that is what we think it is so my birding has come to a halt for now. So I am working around the house today.

Hope everyone is having a good day!!!

I spend the afternoon trying out new shoes. Trying to find some that my feet don't start cramping after 3 miles. I had to come home and soak my feet.

Kathy, thanks for the tips on where to walk! Don't think I'll be going that far to start with but it's nice to have a choice as to which side of the river I'm on!

Christine, dreaming is a good thing! And birds and dahlias go together well! emoticon

I am free for a group walk any Saturday except June 25 and July 2.

Have a great weekend!

Kathy, that is a long walk! My next game is Tuesday at 9:00 pm at Willow Lane #3. I'm going into work late the next day. That is a LATE game!

Christine, did you wave when you came to Kuna? I was waiting for you. emoticon

I agree that we should plan a walk. I can do the 4th or the 11th of June but not the 18th.

Jackpot was fun. I did not come back with more money than I started with, but I did have some money left. It was good!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi Roberta, I am so proud of us.... but hope the mall place will make is easier in the future! lol

Kathy that is a good long walk!!! And I love your clean up practice of throwing everything out!!! Hahaha And I am not sure about a group walk yet, I have been very busy chasing birds! :) In fact I am leaving in a bit to go to Kuna!

Sondra, I like that walk near the zoo too! So shady!

Rachael, my spark "name" has a dream in it too! Christine and then BWD stands for Bird watching Dreamer!!! :) Great minds think alike right?

Barb, I am so sorry for your injury, hope it heals up quick!

Kelle, I am still wondering about the toy hauler.

Rachael I agree with Barb start your walk at the zoo. After looking at the giraffes you are able to walk both sides of the river there is several foot bridges that lets you cross and the green belt is on both sides of the river in that area.

Yesterday I parked in Ann Morrison walk from there to Broadway then back tracked to the foot bridge crossed over the river at the zoo and when back to Broadway. I then wanted to check out whole foods so I walked over there and once I walked through the store I walk back to the park and the green belt followed it to Americana where I crossed back into Ann Morrison Park then walked around the park a bit before returning to my car and heading home. Unless you walk a lot I would not recommend you do this in one outing because it was just over 6 miles. But you can break it up in chunks and has it gets warmer you can stay on the shady side of the river.

It is about time we do a group walk, With that said Saturday the 21st and 28th is out for me.

Glad you won your game Barb, when and where is the next one?
So how did your Jackpot trip turn out? Did you have fun?

Sondra I don't usually drive to the park to walk so I too get to see a lot of cars until I get to the neighborhood I like to walk in. There is no side walks but it is low traffic they also don't let their dogs run loose. That is why I don't walk in my neighborhood to many dog that run lose and they like to nip at my heals. My neighbors don't like it if I threaten to pepper spray their fur babies so to keep peace I walk a mile to get to a peaceful neighborhood.

Christina great pictures. That challenge sounds like work, do you know I am allergic to work?

Kelli glad to see you here, I hope thinks settle down for you.

Roberta sounds like you have been busy. Don't you just love light bulb moments.


emoticon Christine's challenge:

Trim bushes/trees

Weed flower beds -done

Clean patio furniture - I am throwing it out

Clean patio

Clean bbq grill - it was tossed it was so old

Clean gutters

Pressure wash driveway/sidewalks

Clean & organize pool area- easy peasy no pool

Clean & organize toys - gave my toys away

Bring color to your outdoor spaces with flowers, etc.

emoticon This might not be to hard if I just toss everything.

Christine and Roberta, Thanks for making the effort and uploading the picture! Very pretty!

Rachael, I would suggest starting at the zoo and going one way or the other. I like walking past the zoo so I can look at the giraffes. Keep watching this thread as we try to schedule walks. You are welcome to join us the next time we meet up!

We did win our game despite my performance. I pulled a muscle pretty early in the game and couldn't run at all. Didn't hit well and got out every time I was up to bat. Next week will be better, right?

Kelli, hope things are getting better. Miss seeing you around!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

I love the pictures you take too! I live in downtown Meridian and don't have such fun sights on my walk. When I get home from work, I'm too lazy to drive anywhere beautiful, and end up walking in the downtown area. I see lots of cars emoticon .

I did walk on the Kleiner Park walk way over the weekend and around The Village. But nothing compares to the green belt or the foothills. I think I'll plan on a trip to Boise over the weekend.

I'm loving this beautiful weather for my daily walks. emoticon

Hello everyone! I'm returning to Spark People after being gone a long time but it is good to be back.

I'm impressed by the beautiful pictures you all share! And Kipster, I love the idea of taking a picture each day (or most days) you walk!

I moved to Nampa from Salem, OR about 2 1/2 years ago. (I don't feel like its been that long!!) Then I moved from Nampa to Boise this last January. So I am still getting to know the area.

The greenbelt looks LLLOOONNNGGG!! What portions of it do you guys recommend?

Anyway thanks for reading. Have a great Friday tomorrow!!

-Rachael

Just pick one, Christine. I had better go to the Apple store to the genius bar for instructions on how to upload pictures to the iPhoto instead of Photos.

Sorry. It does not let me share the file with Spark. I can send them by slow mail. I like the iPhoto program much better than Photos.

I am not a very good photographer! The dark shots were facing the sun. I will try again tonight when the flash works. The plants are not in full bloom--just a few full blossoms are showing.

After you press the reply button, at the top, towards the left of the message form, it says add an image. Press that,

And then a box will appear that says "Upload a photo to appear with your post."

Now Press BROWSE, select one img (photo) you want. Then press open.

The file will now be in the box

Last press upload now.

Here is a random picture I selected... LOL
