Just got home a while ago, I had errands, including finally getting my sewing machine into the shop. :)

Barb, how early is early? (tee hee)

Good job Kathy working for your one hour.

I will be going out of town after the 16th, we are going to OR.

I bought my niece a used singer so we are going to take it to her and also meet up with my sister.

The 19th works for me if we are early enough. I have lunch plans at 11:30.

More later.

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.

The 12th is the YMCA Steak run so it will not work for me. The 19th will work for me.

Got to go get an hour work it so I don't mess up on day 2 of my goal.

Good afternoon! The 12th looks good to me too! :)

Kathy good idea to work one hour a day. I do things like that to get to some of my goals too! :) That should be doable and your reward will be to have a nice mini-gym!

Barb, a four mile walk is really great! Hope you had your backpack for any of your purchases!

Woke up with a headache this morning... not sure if it was because of my two mile walk yesterday? Oh well, it is gone now! :)

Kathy, that's a good idea - one hour per day. I'll try to remember to ask you if you got your hour in so you don't find those outs!

DD and I walked to Walgreen's yesterday. Two miles there and two miles back - it was a nice walk!

Yes, I'd like to hike Table Rock in September. The 12th is looking good for me. Does it look good for anyone else?

Christine I figure that Johnny's would be to far away for me. I haven't been to a gym, other then those in hotels for a very long time. I should check into some in my neighborhood. I thought about the Y but then I don't want to pay $45 a month. I pretty frugal.

I got another box of cloths ready to go to the youth ranch, a sack for the garbage and sorted some pictures. I am tossing the picture of people I don't know. Yes they were my mothers and I know some of them are cousin that I have never met because they lived in the East and there was never visiting back and forth after my mother's parent died. They died when I was quite young so don't remember any Eastern cousins.

My goal is to work at least an hour each day on my mother's belongings. The sad thing is after I get through what is in the house I have a shop that is full of her stuff also. One box at a time that is how I have to approach it and a minimum of one hour a day. Today I spent two hours so that means I can take one day off. emoticon See I am already looking for "outs" Help keep me honest and on task.

Are we still planning a table rock hike in September?

Hope you all had a good day.

Kathy, Johnny's is off Federal Way in the Fred Meyer parking lot, to the left. That also sounds good to clear out your mother's excess and make room for a mini gym! I wish I had the room but we don't. Good luck looking for just the right treadmill, sounds good!

I got my 2 mile outdoor walk today and it felt great! I skipped any exercise yesterday and I noticed I wasn't as tired in the evening as I should have been.

Barb, we are making mac n cheese today and also meatballs in the Crockpot and one pound of meatballs in the freezer for another time. I am not a huge fan of cucumbers but i do eat them sometimes. Right now I am on a fresh cabbage salad with carrots kick!

Christine where is Johnny's gym? I think it is probably on the wrong side of town for me.

I sure enjoyed my run this morning, not only was it cool out, the air was in the green category and that is about as good as Boise ever get anymore.

I am hoping it is a cool day on the Steak run because it is in the afternoon and I really don't like running in the heat.

I have been thinking of clearing out the half of the garage no vehicle is parked in and setting up a mini gym. First purchase will be a treadmill so I can continue running through the winter month when ice is on the sidewalk. I have to save up for the treadmill I want because I want one with all the bell and whistle on it. Which give me a lot of time to sort the stuff in the garage. Most of it is my mothers and it will probably go to the youth ranch or garbage. I am so tired of dealing with her stuff. None of the siblings seem to want to help with all the stuff so it is up to me, especially beings it got unloaded at my house. And it is all stuff my mother will never use again.

Dixie maybe we can meet up for our steak dinner after the YMCA steak race.


back later, have a good day.

Those both sound good!! I made potato soup for lunch and Mac and cheese for dinner. I also have cucumbers in vinegar that I keep adding cucumbers too. No one else likes them, so they are all mine!

Hiya Dixie!!! The Race for the Steaks sounds like a fun race! But, it sounds like your DH had more fun at the Wine Run though, tee hee!

Those are both great ideas Barb for my lifting problem! I also think working out with your friend should really help you too! I would kind of like a partner at my gym too but Hunk will have to "do" for now. :) We just have to be careful not to tax out his heart.

Today I want to get the outside of my windows clean and I am trying a new healthy biscuit out. It is made with olive oil instead of shortening. Let you know if we like it. :)

I made Cinnamon-Swirl Bread last night for this morning's breakfast, Yum it turned out good too. Don't worry I only ate one piece! :)

Heehee, the only samples for the wine run are at the finish line, but my husband got to sample them while I was doing the walk. He was pretty loopy when I was done.

Pineapple and carrot sound weird together, but I'd totally try it!!

Kathy, love the picture. Too funny!

Christine, I have the same problem with lifting. Two things have helped me in the past. One - set a goal and work toward it, like being able to do a pull up or 10 push ups or something like that. Two - work out with someone. That's what I'm doing right now. She comes in with a different workout each day (three days per week). Knowing she'll be there makes me go and her workout kicks my butt!

We had our draft for the Fantasy Football today. It is an all-female league and we had a blast choosing and trash-talking! Definitely looking forward to football!!!

I def don't know where I am!

I worked in the yard for a couple of hours today and my throat kind of hurts, but I really do have lots to do out there! Sorry the smoke got you Kathy. I think I can get you a pass for Johnny's Fitclub if you want to try the running indoors? let me know... :) I go weekdays around 1:00 pm

I didn't go to the gym at all today, weekends can be a bit crowded anyway so I took the day off.

emoticon I wish someone would kick me in the butt so I would do more weight training though!!! I really do need it and somehow I can talk myself out of it all the time!

Those muffins sound good. Good thing I just ate a meal or I would be searching for the ingredients which I think I have all of them.

Yes I ran yesterday it wasn't to bad when I started out but on the last mile I seen a bank of smoke being blown my way. It got to me before I got home.

Today and tomorrow are walking days. Today was not bad at all and hoping for more of the same. I will run again on Monday.

Decided to go to the gym today instead of go out in this smoke. It is somewhat better today though. Did you run in this Kathy?

Got in almost 2 miles of walking and I used a few more pieces of equipment today! I feel I am making progress... :)

I'm not doing any of the challenges either. I have a hard time remembering to do what they ask, let alone track it. My intentions are good, but that's as far as it gets.

Has the air gotten better? I've been inside so much that I haven't really noticed.

Tomorrow is grocery shopping and meeting a friend at 2:00 at the gym. Have a great Friday!

Good evening all! I am not going to do any of those challenges either. I signed up for the biggest loser challenge. Nothing is really happening with that yet though.

Kathy, my new gym has been saving my training. Even when I have been out just for a little while in this bad air I have been getting sick the next morning. Headache, sore throat etc. Glad I have been able to work out at the gym in the meantime. If it is good out tomorrow we will walk outside though. Not too many more days for us to be outside enjoying the day.

Barb I am not doing any of those challenges Coach Jen sent out. I do the BLC(Biggest Loser Challenge) it is 12 weeks long and it is enough of a challenge for me. It is open enrollment right now if anyone want to join BLC. There are a number of teams, all with a bit different take on the journey. Sounds like the fair work well for everyone. I don't do the ride either. Even as a kid rides did not attract me, well maybe bumber cars, work outs my frustration.

Christine we didn't make it to the zoo, it was closed for a private party. So I too have never been to the SLC zoo. The wedding was very nice. It was a very small gathering. Just close friends and family.

Dixie the wine run would get me in trouble I know I would have to stop and sample.

Anyone doing the YMCA steak run on 9/12?

Hoping the air is clean by then, training is suffering due to all the smoke in the air. Going to try a run in the morning if it is not to smokey.

Have a great evening.

Hi ladies!

Dixie, that is definitely not a flat course. My friends husband lied!! LOL!

Christine, that's great news about the gym. Hope you continue to like it!!!

I did go to the fair and get ditched. I was okay with that. The kids like to ride the rides and I get motion sickness. Plus, I like looking at stuff that they don't. Worked out for all of us. The best thing was that the kids each has a Friedan and it was the first fair for both friends. And they all loved it!

Hi Dixie! I think Kelli did the Wine Run too! Wow, that sounds like a hilly course! 56 floors!! I am so glad it was fun though! Hope your husband does do the Beer N Brats Run with you, it sounds right up his alley, tee hee!

Dixie, that is great that your husband is going to the Y with you! Today will be our first day at Johnny's Fitclub and I am really looking forward to it!

Hi Barb, how was the fair this year? Did you get "ditched" by your kids?

Kathy, I have never been at the SLC zoo, what was your favorite animal? Hope the wedding went off great!

Yeah, I did the Wine Run and it definitely wasn't a flat course. My FitBit said I climbed 56 floors. There were lots of small hills and two really big ones. But it was really fun. My husband came with me and sampled lots of wine while I walked.
I've almost got him talked into doing a 5K with me in September, there's a fun one called Beer N Brats.
Hope everyone is doing well. I'm doing a challenge on MyFitnessPal that's really helped me get off my plateau. I'm back to losing weight slowly but I'll take it. I've also gotten DH to come to the Y with me three days a week. We go to QiGong on Sundays and it's about time to go....see you all!

Barb, I think there are fires all over right now! But yes I do hope it cleared up soon! That is so funny about you going to the Fair and then getting ditched, we always used to call it that too, makes me wonder where that expression came from! :)

Kathy, I hope you have a blast in SLC!!! Hope the air clears up for you too! :)

Barb, I got this postcard in the mail, from Johnny's Fitclub, it said zero enrollment fee, a month to month membership, no contract and 9.99 a month with the 1st month free, so of course I thought ummm "what is the catch?", turns out there is *none* and I will be locked in for that price. I am surprised I could talk Don into it but I think he does know he must keep the project health kick alive. I am so happy, I really like using some of those machines!

It seems like the air quality got worse as they got more of the fire contained. I hope they can get all of the fires 100% contained and extinguished and the air can clear up.

Kathy, have fun in SLC, at the zoo and at the wedding.

Christine, what gym are you joining?

Heading to the fair tomorrow. I'm taking DS and his friend and they will promptly ditch me and I'm okay with that. DD will also be down there with her BF. I expect to see them when they want money. I don't have any, so maybe I won't see them at all! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Here I am on my first leg of my jouirney to this weekends wedding. Today I am in Elko waiting for my friends to get off work then we are heading for SLC. Believe it or not the smoke is far far worse here then in Boise. My lungs actually hurt today. I am hoping SLC is not as bad as it is in Elko. We have a BBQ tonight a pre-wedding party. We plan to go to the zoo tomorrow morning and then the wedding at 5:00 in the afternoon.

Hope you all have a great weekend I plan too emoticon

Hi! I found a gym 3 miles from me that even I can afford if there isn't any surprises that I don't know about.

The air still looks pretty smoky out there. :(

Kathy, I hope you're right and the air clears before any of your races start.

Christine, want to come visit me and clean my house?

I haven't done well at getting to bed on time all week. The good news is that I don't work tomorrow and am hoping to be in bed in the next half hour or so.

DD and I went for a walk yesterday. Today we did a workout at the gym. Getting mostly caught up and then headed out.

Have a great one all!!

I am still walking in this smoke filled air, however I am not running in it. I have a few more weeks before my next race. Hope the air is cleaned up by then, I am sure it will be.

Hiya ladies,

Barb so sorry you have too much work at work and at home too... you need your sleep so hope your workload diminishes soon. At least it's hump day! :)

Kathy, yep I was smiling! I love it when I have a super clean kitchen. When Hunk cooks he is very neat and tidy. When I bake, not so much! So I still have a ways to go today! But the floor is clean enough to be in bare feet now.... Yay!

Well, this air is not getting any better yet. I am going to walk today anyway.

Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!

I posted earlier and the post went away. Sigh.

Kathy, that is a huge size difference! And I hope the air clears up soon so you can run again.

Been pretty busy here. Between work and home type work, I've been getting to bed too late and getting up too early. Hoping to catch up with everyone more later.

Christine exercise wear with elastic waistbands are among my favorite cloths.

I opted for a walk over a run this morning due to all the smoke in the valley.

Hope everyone is having a good day.

Wow that is quite a difference in sizing! I haven't bought any fitted pants in a long while. I have only been buying exercise wear with elastic waistbands.

It looks like the wind died down, I hope the fire is put out today!

Cleaning closets today I found some slacks I haven't worn in years stuff back in the back corner..

The sad thing is, they are a size if I went to the store and bought new today they would be way to big for me. However those in the closet fit snuggly around the waste. They do bag in the behind.

I think they have changed the sizing over the years. The slacks are size 12, I bought some slack last week and they are size 2. I knew the sizing had changed over the years but I did not think it changed that much.

Didn't go for my walk yesterday because Hunk's knee was bothering him. I "should" gave gone without him. Oh well 20/20 hindsight. Well, I have some gardening to do today.

hello

Table Rock walk it looks like it would have to be the 19th for me. The 12th I am running in the YMCA Idaho Beef Council Race For The Steaks.

I'm back from my mini vacation, however I will be leaving again for a long weekend going to SLC for a wedding.

I think September I will be home all month. I have got the Race For The Steaks and the FitOne race plus our Table Rock walk.

Like the running fool I am starting to be, I have signed up for the Veteran's Day race. The Veteran's day race is the first race I actually ran in last year, I did it in honor of my eldest brother who is a Vietnam veteran. My goal was to run four 5k races this year. I have made that goal plus a few more, I have ran 6 and have signed up for 3 more. The sad thing I am looking at a few others. I really think I need my head examined, it is not normal to take up running after you retire.

I hope the air clears up for those running in the wine or whine race.

I am sure looking forward to cooler weather. I start whinning about the heat after the 2nd or third day of heat in late spring. I think 70 with no humidity would be perfect.

Well I need to go be productive.
Have a great evening.

Today was pretty nice for walking outside. I walked to the library and the post office and didn't even break a sweat. Drove into town to get groceries and had to keep the windows rolled up because it was too cold to keep them down.

Now...if the fires can be put out and the smoke can clear out, the weather is about perfect!

I'm good with either the 12th or the 19th for Table Rock.

Kelli, one of my friends is doing the Wine Run tomorrow. She is not looking forward to it. Her DH told her that it was a flat course (apparently it's not) and she doesn't like wine. So...for her, it's a Whine Run. LOL! Hope you have fun and that the smoke isn't too bad.

Christine, have you been taking walks still? It seems like it was a little cooler today. And tomorrow might be downright cold! LOL!

Kathi, how is your mini-vacation? Or is that coming later?

I'm heading to the grocery store tomorrow...after I go to yard sales with DS. Followed by laundry. Anybody jealous of my glamorous life? LOL!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick check in! I got a VivoFit and I am loving it. Very similar to the Fitbit but not as much money. I have gotten in over 10,000 steps the last two days.

Tomorrow is the Wine Run! Is anyone else running that one. I can't wait.

September for Table Rock sounds good to me too. I would say lets get a tentative date out there and shoot for that. Like the 12th or the 19th.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Sounds good, so September for Table Rock! Woohoo! And I even know how to get there!

Got my cardio in today but not sure about the walk tonight. I am hoping it cools off a bit. Kathy did you get a run in this morning? I am wondering how early you had to get up and whether the Soda Springs Fire made the air quality unfavorable for running. I heard that it is the biggest fire in the US right now. All this wind cannot be helping! :(

September sounds good to me for the Table Rock walk.

Kathy, I had to buy nicer clothes for my grandpa's memorial. I still work, but Micron is a casual place. I wear jeans or capris most days. No shorts though!

Christine, love the idea of ham potato soup with broccoli. I'll have to see if I have any recipes worth sharing. Do you like casseroles?

Hello everyone.

I have been gone on another mini vacation. I am really liking retirement. Next week I will be traveling again. Got an out of town wedding to attend. I will have to find some cloths that fit, I have only bought casual cloth since loosing weight. With being retired I don't dress up much.

I think we should try to do the table rock walk in September. What is everyone else's thoughts?

Hope you all had a good week.

Barb, sounds like a good workout! Hope you aren't too sore for your softball game for sure!

Stayed busy all day in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning. Tried out a new Italian biscotti recipe and it is so good. (chocolate-cherry). I am going to limit myself to one with coffee in the morning. I also made the blueberry bran muffins from spark people, very good! Then DH and I made a Potato Ham soup with lots of broccoli for dinner.

Does anyone else have any recipes to share?

Yay Christine!! Love walking outside!

Did a new workout with one of the ladies at the gym. It was a good all-over workout...expecting to be sore tomorrow. Hoping not too sore to play SB. Next game is Thursday at 9:00 pm. So glad I can sleep in on Friday!

Looks like the storm didn't happen...at least in Kuna.

It was nice to have the day off. Got stuff done and fixed my washer. Even kept my steak going.

Meeting a friend at the gym tonight and going to do whatever workout she has picked out. The ones I've seen her do are full body and tough. Looking forward to it!

Sure looks like a storm is brewing over here in east Boise! Not sure I am going to get my outdoor walk or not tonight!

Barb, if anyone can do a detailed business process it would be you! But of course I am glad you get an extra day off to tke care of the business of enrolling the boy! :)

Well, Don and I cannot go to any more grocery stores for a while, we ran out of space in both of the freezers and the fridge! I am bummed, but I know it's a bad habit so... I will deal!

Find of the day was Yoplait Peach Greek yogurt (100 calories) 4 pack for 99 cents!! I bought two. (5.3 oz). and Frozen sugar snap peas for 79 cents each.

Christine, that recipe sounds delicious. I love it when the DH likes a new recipe. Even better when it's cheap! The kids will out grow the fighting...when they move out. Until then, I will deal.

Kelli, If I had to drive to Kuna, I probably wouldn't have made it either. Too far to drive, but I can walk there just fine. LOL!

Kathy, how are things?

Monday was good. Started working on a new business process. That can be very detailed and drawn out, but I'm okay with it. Taking tomorrow off to register the boy for school and do some school supply shopping. Looking forward to the extra day off.

Hi Kelli,

That is what we have heard about salt water pools, and not turning my hair green is a def plus in my book. :)

It sounds like you are keeping Blake busy this summer! Oh I am sure you will have fun for the wine run! :)

Thought I should share this here, I made this and DH ate almost the whole bowl himself the first time I made it. And yes I made some the next day for him at his request.

Three Bean Salad ( Serves 6)

1 (8 oz) can red kidney beans (save 3 T of liquid) and discard the rest
1 (8 oz) can cut green beans, drain and discard liquid
1 (8 oz) can wax beans, drain and discard liquid
1 (8 oz) can garbanzos drain and discard liquid (I didn't use these)
1 stalk of celery chopped
1 small green pepper chopped (we didn't use this either)
1 small onion cut into rings and then quartered
1/2 cup white vinegar
3 T of kidney bean liquid
1/2 or 1/4 cup of sugar (we only used 1/4)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of salt (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
3 1/2 teaspoons of oil ( we used olive)

1. Prepare the veggies.
2. Combine the beans in a large bowl; toss gently. Stir in celery, bell pepper and onion.
3. Combine vinegar and bean juice (or water) in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Add sugar, salt and pepper; shake until mixed. Add oil and shake until well combined.
4. Pour dressing over bean mixture, tossing to coat. Chill, covered, until ready to use, stir before serving.

Hi Barb! How was your Monday?

Kathy I bet you are having fun helping! :)

Good Morning Everyone,

Just a quick pop in to say hello. We had a busy weekend, almost made it to Kuna days, but ended up not having enough time. My grandma came into town earlier than expected, I had to take my mother in law shopping, then a family dinner which was nice.

The Wine Run is next weekend at St. Chapelle's. I am really looking forward to it, but am guessing it could be really hot again.

Chrisitne, My aunt uses salt water in her pool, and it is so nice. It doesn't turn your hair green or your eyes red. LOL... she does use chlorine to get it to the levels she needs but that is usually in the beginning of the summer.

Barb - That sounds like fun, I bet the fire works were awesome.

Have a great Monday everyone!

We both ended up too tired yesterday, dang it! I love fireworks and car shows.... so glad the kiddos only fought a little bit, hopefully they will grow out of that soon. :)

We just got back from a walk and it was beautiful! I am going to hate to lose summer! Fall is good too though! :)

Tried a new Coleslaw dressing tonight and it was pretty good!

Hugs for everyone's evening!!!

Happy Cat Day to you as well!

Kuna Days was good. We did go to the car show and it was nice. The weather wasn't too hot and it wasn't too crowded. And the kids only fought for a little bit. And the fireworks were beautiful!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to start the week, refreshed and raring to go!

Hi everyone!

Barb how was Kuna Days? Did you get a chance to go to the car show?

I am still working on a whole bunch of stuff here. :) Making a three bean salad right now for a picnic I hope to go on next week.

Barb, All I know is what I am being told, but it seems that is will only cost $300 to switch over to salt and it is easier to maintain. Oh and depending on how Hunk feels I am going to try to go to get to Kuna Days. I would really like to see the car show! Too dang bad I missed the Ritchie Valens tribute by Tejano Outlaws, I bet that was good!

Hugs for everyone's evening!!!!

Hope he gets the pool up and running. You're going to use salt? Instead of chlorine? I've never heard of that.

Kuna Days is this weekend. You should all come out for the parade, the car show, the vendors in the park and then the fireworks. Lots of cool stuff!!

Later ladies!

Good afternoon Ladies!

Barb, Hunk is doing pretty good. He has been trying to fix an ongoing problem with the pool set up. We got a new pump a while back and it works great, but the rest of the setup was on the wrong side so he is having to use his engineer skills to come up with something else. We are going to go with salt next year, easier on my skin and way easier to keep up with.

Barb, I also think that is the coolest thing that you caught that ball!!! Way to Go!!!

Kathy sounds like you got a great run in this morning! What time did you have to get up?

Kathy, I'm good with waiting until closer to the date to decide on a walk up Table Rock.

Kelli, I did not win Bunco. I will certainly keep you in mind. We often need a sub.

Christine, how is Hunk? Have you been enjoying the rain? I was awake for the thunder and lightning storm on Tuesday. Very cool!

We won our game Tuesday night. There were three co-workers on the other team...felt good to beat them! LOL! Especially since one of them hit the ball to me (on purpose) and I caught it. Neener neener! LOL!

Wow, I haven't been here in a few!

Kelli, sounds like you and Blake had a great time camping! I bet the weather in Cascade was really pleasant! I am sure Blake and Lilly will have a blast at the fair too! Seems like there is always something to do during the summer enjoy!!

Hi everyone,

Wow, we spent the weekend camping at the last minute. It was fun, we headed up to Cascade and Blake just had the time of his life. I was a bit disorganized this time around and forgot some key stuff... but all in all it worked out just fine.

I think August 15 is the Wine Run.

I can't wait for the fair and hoping to take Blake and Lilly.

Barb - Did you win at Bunco... if you ever need a sub let me know. I love Bunco but I haven't played in years.

Stay cool and have a great day!

Barb I think we can play it by ear, with this crazy weather we have had this summer. August 15th might be perfect and September weather not so much. I think we should decide closer to the 15th. Just my humble opinion.

I don't do the fair anymore, haven't for years. Now I might go to some small county fairs, but even that right now is up in the air. I like Gem Counties because I run into old friends and I like Valley counties also.

Congratulations on your new streak Christine!!

Kathy, we can put off the walk/hike up Table Rock until its cooler. The parking lot is right by the penitentiary. Pretty easy to find.

Tonight is Bunco. Looking forward to it and fingers crossed that I win!

Good afternoon Ladies! Today is the first day of my streak! My streak will be trying my best to have as healthy a day as possible! It may sound vague, but I know what I need to be doing and I haven't been doing it! :(

Your trip sounds fun Kathy!

Barb, the fair sounds really fun for DS and his friend! I don't think I will go this year though. I usually just go to the exhibits anyway.

I am making another trip to Elko. Working in a Memorial Golf Tournament. I used to play it in but I enjoy helping with it more. Going down Wednesday and we will put the goody bags together on Thursday. Then Friday is a no host bar. Saturday Morning is the busiest time. Sunday is the recoperation day. I will come home Monday or Tuesday.

The hotter the sauce the better. My salsa also has to be hot. Hoping my friends in Elko have some extra homemade salsa they want to send home with me.

Christine sorry about your friend, hope she gets better soon. I notice today OMSS (Once More Super Store) Change their name to collector super store.

Kelli how was the concert in Jackpot? I bet Blake is pretty proud of his metal. Where do you camp at in McCall? Pondarosa park? I miss the day of having family that lived in McCall always had a place to crash back then.

Christine you put way more in your smoothie then I do. My usually consist of a banana, berries, yogurt and a green sometime protein powder but not often and some times I add coconut milk. I like to add cinnamon and or nutmeg also.

Barb for the walk to the cross the 15th might be to warm still but if not I am up for it. I don't know where the base parking lot is but I will find it.


Got to go to bed now have to get up early in the morning to beat the heat.

Hello ladies!

I am totally up for a hike up Table Rock. If we do it on the 15th (which works for me), I would suggest we go early - maybe meet at the base in the parking lot around 7:00?

Kelli, I bet Blake was so cute during his race and with his medal.

Christine, hope you get to go to Challis soon. Beautiful country up there.

Kathy, a mini-vacation sounds like fun to me!

I'm going to get tickets for the Fair this weekend. If I buy them now, it saves me money. Planning to take DS and one of his friends. DD will go a couple of times, once with her BF and once with her BFF. Once per year is enough for me.

Hi Kelli! Wow Blake got a metal! How cute! You will have to make him a metal bulletin board! I am sure this won't be his only one!

There is lots of places to stay in McCall, where do you usually stay?

My green smoothies aren't really fancy: yogurt, organic Juice, ground flax, wheat germ, protein powder, banana, "greens only" powder, "Miracle Reds" powder and Spinach (etc.) greens.
