We have very low rain chances. I am freezing gallon jugs of water again. I use them to hydrate the Crepe Myrtle the township put in last year in our cul-de-sacs. Neighbors are watering our cul de sac, but the entrance one doesn't have any concerned friends, so I haul water to them frozen. Frozen gallon jugs hydrate them gradually as the ice melts overnight. That worked last year when the trees were so new and trying to get established. Their leaves are starting to wilt again this summer, so I'll try to help out.

Our next door neighbor came over yesterday and used his ladder to crawl up on our roof and blow the leaves and debris off. So very kind of him since Joe and I cannot do that. He even blew the debris that landed on our decks into piles and carried it to our trash can. Such a thoughtful man. He calls it his "community service."

Enjoy your weekend.

Watering is part of my morning walking now...to haul gallon jugs of water to the plants beyond the reach of the hose. Trying to do it early to beat the sun as well.

Met my goals today late afternoon...but took an extra walk anyway. Better than sitting. Too muggy to do much else. Rain in Nashville was a deluge, but a very small storm that fizziled before it got to us.

Laundry today. Not my regular day, but I'm getting gradually shifted back after traveling.

Can't seem to water enough these days. Glad I don't have grass to fret about, but I try to keep my plants hydrated so they don't shrivel up and die.

Beats ice and snow any day.

Got my steps done today.

I am at 10000+ steps and 3 flights of stairs. Liked walking every aisle in the grocery/AC this morning. No mowing today as we have a meeting tonight.

Great that you are done and have something to look forward to for your anniversary! It will be your 61st this year!!! Pretty amazing.

Reached 10,000 steps already. Yeah! Had banking to do, walked the mall, and visited my favorite local yarn shop for new yarn and some pattern clarification. They are so knowledgeable. I do appreciate those gals.

Joe blew the one needles and debris off the property this morning. Much appreciated.

I asked what we were doing for our anniversary this August, and he said, one item on my wish list. Yeah!! So I'll have to pick an item and we'll go for that. Encouraged!!

I have been up and running for a good while..half of walking done, plant watering underway...interrupted by the family of turkeys that comes every day. 9 half grown "chicks" and three adults. When they come, I try not to disturb them. Many of the turkeys just watch me but don't run, but not all.

We are with you on the heat issue...just not interested in being anywhere colder than here.We get moderate cold, occasional snow, etc, but not like it was in New England. If we moved again (not likely) it might be back to St. Croix...summer always. Every place has advantages and disadvantages.

The extra money will definitely be from the lease payment ending, and also from the insurance, license and taxes of just one car opposed to two. The cost of my car was close to $500.00/month. Way, way too much for a gorgeous car sitting in the garage. I was attached to it, but the cost was ridiculous for our means. Getting things done to fix up our home is much more important. Joe's lease is not as expensive partially bc he had a newer car to trade in for his down payment. But purchasing the next car will definitely be better for us bc we may end up keeping it much longer. My trade in was 8 years old bc in the past we did keep cars longer. A learning curve for us, definitely!

More heat coming our way. it's only July and already I am whining about our heat. Better than freezing our behinds off and slip sliding on the icy roads. So we do belong in Texas, but the heat is still an issue in the intense summers.

I'm lazy today, still in my nightgown. I have to get out of here and get my day started.

I misunderstood what you wrote: " I did not even use the allowed miles on my contract. The extra money in our budget will be great to have..." Now I realize you were probably referring to the monthly payments. Oh well, either way. The only time we leased a car was many years ago...and we ended up buying the car we had leased..probably the most expensive way to purchase a car. DH did the lease while I was visiting my mother..four kids in tow. We really really did need a larger car with four kids, car seats etc...and I don't know how we would have afforded what we got if we had purchased straight out, but the lease deals are to the benefit of the dealer, not the customer, in my personal opinion. Oh well...we had a car when we needed one..and that thing went for many, many years.

Got started early this morning...and have over 10000 steps by mid afternoon. Thunder is rumbling..but no rain. It is hot and humid...with most of the steps done, I don't have to worry HOW I will get to 12000 even if it does rain. Bought my husband his own scale and it was delivered today. Thought he would be pleased...not so sure he is though. Fussing about MY scale. Grrr. Oh well, this should help stop some of the weigh in confusion.

Hope everyone is managing to stay active and hydrated...and happy. Make good choices!

Lease cars do not refund dollars for unused mileage, but they do charge 25 cents per mile over the contract. They also have you purchase new tires for the car if the tread is below 4/32. My tread was good and the spare tires was brand new never used. That was more important than using up all the miles.

Joe's lease will probably force him into purchasing four new "run-flat" tires next April for his car bc his tires are "run-flats" and they are ordinarily good for only 24,000 miles. We now are aware that a lease car must be returned with the equipment that came on the car.

We are considering replacing his car with a purchased car instead of lease next April. We've learned a great deal with this experience.

I walked the mall again among the regulars - mostly white haired folks. We are quite a group. We don't chat except on our walks, and it's always fun to see who shows up. I'm just a tad under 10,000 steps so far which means I'll easily hit my primary goal. My high goal is 5 miles, but sometimes I have to be satisfied with 10,000 steps.

Kiwi shows no signs of stress from his seizure. We have no idea what brought it on.

Joe has started on my list of things to accomplish here on this house. Yeah!! I have not brought it up since I gave him the list before our vacation, so I am super pleased. Nagging does not work with my Joe.

All is well here.

I can hardly believe you are approaching 80...I want to be just like you...going strong as long as possible! I am sure turning in the car was tough in view of what a car represents. Glad you got some $$ back for milage not used (I presume). Knew a man in St. Croix who was well into his 90s and still driving...but could barely walk. He would pull up to the gate at the beach club and honk..and everyone went out to visit with him there. He was much loved in the community.

Hot and humid here. Hubby keeps picking projects to work on outside...in the sun. I don't understand why he won't wait till the area is shaded...at least he has on a shirt and hat to help keep him from getting fried. I worry about him with skin cancers (none found yet) as he has had wayyyy to much exposure to sun over his lifetime.

Have my steps in for today..now need five more flights of stairs.

Returned my leased car today. Feeling sad about the change in my independence status. We'll share a car from here on in. My gorgeous car sat in the garage a great deal of the time. I did not even use the allowed miles on my contract. The extra money in our budget will be great to have, but I loved my gorgeous car, and it was all mine. 39 months ago I said I wanted a grand car for my swan song and got it. I'll be 80 in less than a month, and since we go almost everywhere together, it does make logistic sense.

I've done everything today to wrap up ownership. Lots of paperwork to fill out, but it's all done.

Time to put on my big girl panties and move forward with life.

Walking and mowing...summer in full swing here. Hot and humid of course. I got 6ooo steps in by 7 am...half my goal..and another 1000 shortly after. Finished out the evening with mowing once the sun was not shining on where I need to mow. Grass is growing so fast in this heat..we have had just enough rain to keep things going in full swing.

I am so glad you have a cool place to walk, Jean. Happy knitting! I still have five flights of stairs to finish.

It is not an everyday goal for sure. I can feel the effects of yesterday's fun.

I have 11,000+ steps today from church, the dogs, and the mall. So I'm good to knit for a while indoors.

Hit 25,000 steps today. I walked almost an hour before one of my walking buddies showed up, and I decided to walk with her a while to catch up with her news. So I hit 11,000 before my morning mall walk was over. I was busy outdoors with plants and watering today. Then tonight Megan came over very upset. We decided to walk the mall again while she calmed down and worked through her work related dilemma. By the time Bella and Kiwi got their night walk, I hit the magic number. Feels good.

My record this week was really low from our travels, so this will help a bit. I am tired and should sleep well tonight.

I do the same...walk or work early...or late. Not wise to be out in the heat of the day if you don't have to be. I finished my steps by moonlight after the meeting on Wed. night...but today got out walking and mowing early and was done before lunch.

We are getting our chores done and staying active. The dogs do not like the oppressive heat either. They walk better in the early morning and after the sun goes down.

All is well here on the home front.

Home now!

We have some ultra busy days ahead. Bella is here, and of course our own Kiwi. Kiwi had a first ever seizure yesterday morning at Del's. She took him to the vet, and paid over $200 to find out he's OK now. We have to watch for seizures now. They won't give medication for it unless they occur daily bc of the horrendous side effects on the liver and kidney. We have no idea what brought it on. He seems fine now. We'll reimburse her for the vet's services when she returns from Vegas on Sunday. Fortunately both Bella and Kiwi go to the same vet.

My car has to be cleaned and ready for its final lease inspection tomorrow. So that's on my agenda for today. Car to be turned in on the 19th.

Joe has to visit with the bank for our rental car dilemma. We had a flat tire with no spare while on the 105 mile long Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National park. No services there of course. So we paid $200 in tow charges, and had to buy a new tire with roadside service for another $200 bc Hertz was adamant that the whole shot was on us since we didn't buy rental insurance. We never ever do. So Joe will ask the credit card to fight with them. We could not let that destroy our vacation, so we tabled it until we returned home.

We visited the three elderly relatives, 92 yrs, 95 yrs, and 97 yrs old in Michigan. Marvelous warm loving family members. Such a joy. We visited Joe's sister Pauline whose dementia now is so severe she only communicates a sing song "OK" when spoken to. She didn't know us. She's in a beautiful facility, and is clean and well cared for, but sadly is no longer mentally in this world. So sad.

Motorized roller hockey tournament in Philadelphia was exciting and amazing. A wonderful time with our son Jeff who coached the Michigan Mustangs. We had some happy time with Jeff's adult children and his grand kids. A loving wonderful family.

So a great get-away.

Glad you figured out the scale funniness.

Sending hugs

Latest on the scale...hubby moved it out into the hallway because it wouldn't weigh him at all! He'd step on and it turned black!! I can't leave it where it is...it is in the way and I have already tripped over it/ Am amused at hubby though. I am thinking of buying him his own Fitbit scale I AM pleased to find that I have broken into the 140s no matter where my scale is placed...so that is progress.

Hope everyone is having a good day and making good choices. Jean, I miss you! emoticon

Have sort of figured out my recent weight loss...ten pounds or so in a week! I washed the floor in my bathroom and moved the scale over...about two inches. THAT did it. I tried multiple weigh ins within a few minutes...scooting the scale over just a tiny bit each time, and sure enough, the weight changed. Ultimately, my reason for weighing is not the number but to know if I am gaining or losing. I don't mind daily variations..BUT it has to be consistent. NOW I wonder which weight is closest to right. My Drs scale us usually about 6-8 lbs more than my home scale..but last time they matched.So I am guessing where the scale was sitting then is the incorrect weight zone. Dr says EVERYone complains about his scale weighing more..even his own scale at home is different BUT, now the scale doesn't want to track to my computer upstairs. I think the bathroom vanity blocks the signal. There has to be some solution to all this.


All that said, I told my husband about all this happening in the week he was visiting his parents. Then I get an email from my Mother-in-law stating my weight in the course of the conversation. Guess who is in the dog house! NO wise husband would tell his mother how much his wife weighs! He said he thought I would be proud of my loss..and I am delighted, but I can be happy without telling the numbers. AND his mother loves to tell... emoticon I don't think this will happen again.

So, hubby gets home this evening. Have my steps done and a ton of random chores...still need 6 flights of stairs. (missed two when I forgot to put fitbit in my pocket). It has been a long day...DH is going to hate the heat and humidity here after the cool of the Pacific NW.

Chaotic morning.
DIL invited us to a cook-out lunch with grand daughter, new great grandson and his proud Daddy. So plans went into the hopper. I did walk. Yeah!!, but some things got shelved.

All is well.

Wow! I weigh myself first thing in the morning undressed after I use the restroom. It's about as consistent as I can make it.

If you weigh the same way everyday, then your scale is having fun at your expense. That is crazy. I must admit that I weigh at night just before I don my night shirt, but that's just to check if I've gone overboard that day. Silly habit, but it keeps me accountable. Since I don't track my food, it's an early check while I can still remember all my snacks and goodies.

Tomorrow will be busy. Laundry, cleaning, and actually putting the rest of my clothes in the suitcase. In this heat and humidity I know everything will get wrinkled no matter when I put it in. I have things hanging in my closet all together that are going with me. Stuff no one will see is already in there bc wrinkling won't matter on those. Cosmetics, medications, and accessories are in there, too.

My knitting: I finished the blue hat today, so I am down to one measly hat project for the trip. That's OK. I may need the space in my carry-ons for other things. I am taking my iPad which is loaded with good things to read, so I won't be bored. Joe is taking several handknit hats I gave him as gifts for the Michigan family. I don't mind. He's keeping the blue one I just finished. Maybe I'll throw in some girlie hats, too, if he has room. I was thinking a Christmas box, but we might as well take them now.

I absolutely don't know what to make of this:

Thursday, Jun 30 at 5:37AM
150 lbs

Friday, Jul 1 at 6:26AM
149.8 lbs 36.7% fat

Friday, Jul 1 at 6:54AM
149.8 lbs 36.9% fat

Saturday, Jul 2 at 5:36AM
142.5 lbs 35.4% fat

Saturday, Jul 2 at 5:37AM
142.9 lbs 35.1% fat

Today at 5:33AM
144.5 lbs 35.2% fat

Today at 6:03AM
143.2 lbs 35.3% fat

Today at 6:09AM
143.5 lbs 35.5% fat


Today at 8:09AM
142.7 lbs 35.1% fat

Is the scale playing games with me or could I really have dropped a chunk of pounds? Sure don't feel any different. Guess time will tell. You can see that I couldn't believe my eyes as I kept trying over and over. lol

I really have had not had trouble with Chewie chewing on things..but perhaps that is because we go outside a lot, She is loose and can be with me in the house..and I give her one of those rawhide chew bone things which lasts her all day...just the little bone thing with the knots on the ends. She also carries around a stuffed toy of her own. This little girlie lives in an apartment with a single mom who works and a little boy in preschool...so they aren't home much during the day normally. I think Chewie is just bored. No boredom around here with so much to guard and so many intruders (squirrels and chickens and cows mostly).

Jean, I am glad you found your compact. There is nothing like hunting for something, fretting that it might be lost and searching all over looking for it!

Love your little visitor. How adorable, Sad he chews stuff, hope he grows out of that. Squirrel chasers are a riot to watch. One of son Jeff's dogs was a squirrel chaser. If anyone even said the word, he was off and tearing looking for it. So funny.

Very hot today here, too. I've watered my plants outside, and hope they won't die while we're gone. A cul de sac neighbor said she'd come over if we don't get rain. A sweet offer. I hope it rains.

Have spent literally hours looking for my Clinque compact bc it has a mirror in it I use when traveling to check the back of my hair after I brush it. Finally found it in the zippered pocket of my knitting bag. I went through pockets of everything imaginable, every drawer in the house, every cupboard, and all my purses bc I could not remember the last time I used it. Was afraid I put it down in some stupid place and promptly forgot it. Glad the lost is found.

Electronic glitches are never fun. Wow! Hope your eerie situation soon resolves itself.

Hugs

I must be affecting the electronics around me. Smoke alarm...with pretty new battery...keeps going off randomly. Thursday, I turned off the car radio and the entire console shut down...no map, no radio, no back up camera etc. I delivered a load of squash to a shut in friend this morning. When I got back into the car, all that stuff came on by itself! Bought a new clock for my office...it hasn't kept time properly at all, but right now, it is RIGHT (not just that right twice a day stuff). Then after two nice little drops in weight on the scale, this morning was a biggie of like 7 lbs. I KNOW that is not accurate, but it was fun for a moment. Hope the scale hasn't gone wonkie on me! Wonder what else is in store?

Pup I am babysitting has proven to be a great squirrel motivator...she goes racing out and charges after them all. It is hilarious to watch, but she also gets so excited that her hearing shuts down...she won't come back or stop on command until she has chased EVERY squirrel up a tree (and there are a lot of squirrels...who run in many directions). She surprised a hen this morning and gave chase...poor old chicken..I think she has been in hiding ever since. And then there are the cows. Yikes. If she takes off after them I am in big trouble. She has calmed a lot after yesterday's hyperactivity all day. She lives in an apartment and is surely not going to want to go home. This is Chewie...who earned her name.


It is so quiet here with almost everyone gone. DIL is struggling with sciatica all week and finally had to opt out of going to the convention this weekend...too much sitting, so they are home but apparently staying indoors. Hubby is enjoying visiting his parents. I gather everyone is competing to entertain him.

Am half way through steps by midday...so that is good. Will wait till last chunk of yard is shaded this evening to finish off the mowing. Will have to water...we need rain again. Hopefully, we will get some tomorrow.

Hope everyone is well and happy...and making GOOD choices! emoticon

Bath mitt done. Lavender hat finished. So I only have two hats in progress for the trip. That's probably enough. Besides if I run out, I'll find a yarn shop somewhere. We're settled for the journey. If we were driving, we'd leave now. Oh, well. Good to be prepared ahead.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Wow!! Wonderful. Your activity level is paying off. So very pleased for you. My wedding weight was 102, and I never ever plan to hit that mark. I dropped below 100 nursing our first daughter, but that wasn't good. I did hit 109 in my 50's, but that's severe for me also. I'd love to drop below 120 again, but would have to give up desserts to get there. Worthwhile, but takes daily sacrifice. We love dessert here. I'm at 122.5. I planned to drop below 120 before vacation, but the will power just wasn't there. My summer clothing is limited at this weight so I'd like to drop. We'll see how active I stay on our trip. I can do it. I hit 115 last summer.

I'll have the bath mitt done today. I promise myself. I'm ready to decrease bit of the finger tip part, and then graft it closed. DIL will love it.

Big surprise for me on scale this morning. Another .2 lbs down from yesterday...2/10 is not much, but it puts me into the 140s! Like this trend!

Good for you on the half pound. Well done with the knitting projects, too. Sorry it is so hot...you are wise to protect your skin.

We are having day two of mild humidity and more normal temps for end of June. Things will start heating up again tomorrow. Almost to 9000 steps for today and half way through stairs. Am puppy sitting this weekend. Chewie is currently barking to protest that I came upstairs without her. She can do the stairs, but is afraid of the narrow end of those steps that turn the corner. I will go get her shortly. I took her kennel outside and put her in the shade this morning so I could mow. Will mow more this evening I think.

Hit a landmark on the scale today. Firmly landed on my original goal weight for SP! I was so surprised and absolutely delighted!! Goal is reset for ten more pounds. I weigh a couple of pounds less than on my wedding day (def .NOT the same shape!) assuming the scales were comparable. Still, it is a number I had never really expected to see again! emoticon

Hope everyone is well and happy....and making good choices! emoticon

Ho, Boy! I now have three hats on the needles, plus a wash mitt. My two Michigan great grandsons love my hats, and my darling DIL up there loves my bath mitts. So all will be appreciated IF I can focus and get them done.

Very hot here today. I am wearing hats everytime I venture outside to protect my scalp. Sun burn there is awful. Ask me!! Ouch!

Got over 9,000 steps again today. I'm on my way to goal.

Dropped one half pound! Oh well, that's better than a gain.

All is well. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Mowing again ...heat and humidity more comfortable today. Son had mowed before we got home, but now it is time again for me to mow. I have been pushing hard for early morning walking...but not so much today. Quick chiro trip and stop in the grocery...then I came home and did the first chunk of mowing. I work in sections and with this mow job, will kind of follow the shady spots during the heat of the day...I usually mow early (if it is dry enough) and late.

Tomorrow will be taking DH to airport for his annual visit to his parents. His dad has just turned 90. Last year, through circumstances we couldn't control, our visit got too long. We are trying to keep things easy on his mother.

GOOD job, JEAN. You are wise to pay attention so the lbs can't creep up and move in to stay. emoticon

Me, too. I take wee naps now and then when I miss hours of sleep during the night. I just get too tired to keep pushing when I'm sleep deprived.

Accomplished good things again yesterday. Tackling more chores today that could be put off, but my weight needs the activity, so I'll plug along. Sitting doesn't push my weight down.

I have started a couple of small knitting projects that I can continue on the trip, two hats on the needles so far.

I'm over 9,000 steps this morning, so getting my steps today is a given. Yeah!!

My weight drifts up and down a few pounds...and then sometimes drops a wee bit lower so I end up with a net loss eventually. I don't fret about it and have no idea what or why it persists in that cycle. What I eat, when I eat, how much water I drank and when, how humid the weather is...It doesn't really matter. My main reason for weighing often is just to pay attention so I don't get on a gain trend.

Very warm here again today. I woke around 3:30 to go to bathroom, but never did manage to get back to sleep...very unusual. Stayed in bed till almost 4:30 and then decided I might as well get up and enjoy the cooler early morning hours. I had over 7000 steps done by 7..and now am at just over 11500. only need 4 more flights of stairs, too.

We bough a new bed last week and it is being delivered and set up right now. Hubby really wanted this. He dismantled the other bed and cleaned around it. This morning I tackled the hallway that had not been tended all winter...there was lots of debris from when we brought home the antique secretary last October. So, I vacuumed thoroughly, even up the stairs. Also cleaned the front porch in case they decided to haul the new mattress stuff in that way. So, in addition to several loads of laundry, making a pasta salad and some letter writing, I have had a productive morning. I have little doubt that a nap is in my immediate future. OK by me. emoticon

All is well. weight gain hung in, but it's OK. I'll survive. Leaving July 5th for trip, so I'll just have to be super careful while gone. Was hoping for some leeway on the scale before our trip.

Very warm and humid here. Did great walking yesterday, and am already close to 10,000 today.

Very productive day yesterday. Got my chores done and then some. Sure feels good.

Have a wonderful week.

6,000 steps yesterday, but already have 12,259 this morning. So I;m trying to get things right.

Gained weight yesterday from lack of steps, and dessert. Bad, bad.

Oh-h-h-h-h Zucchini bread is yummy. You have a treasure in your freezer. I bought walnuts and pecans yesterday. Big bags, and I put them right in the freezer even though I didn't open them yet. So I'm ready to bake goodies and make fruit salads.

I'm falling behind on my steps this weekend. Not sleeping well again. It'll pass. No worries.

Hot and humid here, but not as bad yet as the last few days. I have been up and running early each morning as usual, but now I am skipping any chores I can leave till later and getting on the walking project. Had over 9000 steps by just past 7 this morning. It is not chilly, but definitely cooler in the early mornings.Fitbit has already dropped one flight of stairs today. Phooey.

I did a marathon baking yesterday to process all the zucchini that I had grated the day before. I lost count of how many double batches of zucchini bread I made.I could have done one more double batch, but I ran out of several other ingredients, so the last five cups of grated zucchini are now in the freezer. All of the zucchini bread is now packaged, labeled and in the freezer. Surely that will be enough until next year! I had washed most of the stuff last night, but still had another sink full to finish this morning. FINALLY have it all done.

Hope everyone is feeling well and doing well...and making good choices. Greetings from me to you!

Fitbit I have now is not counting precisely right...it was new as a replacement when my first one wouldn't charge any more. They sent me a replacement for this one immediately, but I am just holding on to it for now...this one may not be precise..but it is sufficient...and when it is wrong, I just do more steps or stairs till it counts them and that can't be a bad thing for my health. lol Because of the heat and humidity here, I got going early today (as usual) but pushed harder to get steps done. Have passed the 12000...and still need a few flights of stairs. LOVE being done so early in the day.

HOpe everyone is doing well. Make good choices! emoticon

My Joe's Fitbit Charge HR bracelet has been delaminating from the core of the Fitbit. So I called this morning, and they are sending him a new one. Way to go!! Fitbit does stand behind its trackers.

Sunny and bright. Made tuna pasta salad for tonight. Walked 9000 steps so far. With two dogs in residence, I'll go over my 10,000 for the day again.

All is cheerful and well here.

Have a grand day.

You are right about upper body workout when you do stuff like that!

Good things at Dr. office yesterday. He told me that I have lost 11 lbs in the last year. I didn't know that. Also, my blood pressure was down..not that it was high in the first place. The upper number had creeped up two points in the last few visits, and it is back to 120. Bottom number was lower than I ever remember...I think it was 69. Anyway...all that is good. He is pleased with my walking (last time said "You ROCK!" when I told him of my 5 miles and ten flights of stairs a day). This time we were discussing diet and he started in on carbs and GMO stuff. I told him I avoid GMO as much as possible. Also that I don't buy bread...make my own with Einkorn flour (don't know if HE knows what that is.) Good for me...he was so surprised and very pleased. If I continue on current course, I will be at excellent numbers soon...weight included, BMI, and so forth. I don't worry at all about cholesterol...won't take their meds no matter what... blood sugars are my only continued bugaboo. Working on those, too. Anyway...happy with the whole thing. This year will also get back on track with all the girly check ups, too. All that healthcare stuff really threw me off track.I do better without their help. lol emoticon

I push myself to drink water. It's a healthy habit that makes a huge difference for me.

Washed my car this morning after walking the mall. Good exercise for the upper body. Grins.

All is well here.

I am glad to be getting settled back in to my daily routines. Heat isn't helping, but we manage. Not acclimatized to air conditioning so we pace ourselves to climate each day. I got going this morning...over 6600 steps are done. Dr. App't this morning to renew RC, so will be interested to see what his scale says..mine is always nicer.

Very glad you can walk in the mall. Heat can be dangerous. In Colorado, it wasn't their heat, but trying to stay hydrated. There is always something I guess.

Greetings to everyone! emoticon Make good choices...and be mindful of weather conditions.

Yeah!

Welcome home. Glad your scale was so terrific! Vacationing to lose weight? Way to go! I dread our trip in July bc I always gain, not lose. I'd love to do that.

I'll check your Fitbit stats. Hope they all synced for you. You can manually enter yours if it didn't hold all your stats. Add exercise, and your steps. Give it your best guess and you'll be back on track.

We're hot and humid but I can walk in the mall easily.

Happy to have you home again.

HOME! Already doing laundry and tending plants etc. I confess that I was a bit anxious about stepping on the scale this morning but am at a new low this morning....less than I weighed when I got married 45 yrs ago! GREAT after two weeks of travel as well

Hope everyone is well and happy and making good choices. I have a full load of stuff to do to get settled back at home and get caught up...and tend the stuff still needing attention this month. Happy to be home and happy with my scale today!

Never thought to bring that little plug in thingy after I decided not to bring my laptop. I did remember the charger dongle. Now just need to do it.

Still walking.10560 right now...so not much more to go.

Sorry you got worried, Jean.

I am sure it will be an adjustment to go down to one shared vehicle.. You are the youngest 80 yr old I know.

Good. I was starting to worry bc you're not syncing your steps to Fitbit. I'm sure you can catch up when you get back to your computer. My Fitbit syncs to my iPhone and then I access Fitbit's site when I'm away to keep my stats up. Depends on wifi availability.

Glad you're able to walk daily for your continued good health.

Loved our church service this morning. Still dry at church time.

Walked in the mall from 10:30 to 11:30, and it was raining when I came out.

It's rained off and on all day now. Kiwi and I got quite wet this afternoon on the nature trail. Knit two dish clothes while I dried out .

Mostly just relaxed today.

Friday we had the cracked windshield on my car replaced- - getting it ready to turn in. July ends my lease and we're getting all our ducks in a row, so to speak. I'm not getting another set of wheels. We'll share from here on in. Mine sat in the garage way too much. I know it will be an adjustment, but it was my own idea to give up my car at 80. Sadly It's time.

Sorry, Jean, meant to reply yesterday. Yes, it brings us great joy to see all of our family embracing spiritual growth.

We are now in Breckenridge CO. I have begun today's walking and am getting stairs just walking up the grade in the parking lot! So far, even with travel, I am maintaining my 12000 steps and 10 flights of stairs. Will probably get way more of both during our stay here!

How wonderful to see your family growing together spiritually. Such a blessing for everyone and especially the grandparents.

Enjoying family and getting acquainted with this area. Walked twice yesterday in a nearby park...it is lovely. Today went to do a bunch is my walking and walked myself right out the other side of the park! Goofed on what time it was...an hour different from home, so was out in the heat of the day. Just finished study for our mtg tonight..6 1/2 yr old grandson has our Bible reading assignment. I heard that our eldest grandson, age 12, did the same Bible reading as a substitute last night in our home congregation.

Great news for your daughter's dress.

We're home again. Rudy has been safely returned to his mistress in Canyon Lake.

All good.

Finished the dress for daughter and it fits. Never seem to make anything w/o an oops or two but despite that, she loves the print and find the dress comfy. Whew. When we get home, probably will be giving a sewing lesson to young friend who wants to sew. She bought fabri and pattern...but has never made anything. Then may be babysitting her little dog while she attends a convention. We will see how that works out.

Terrific. Enjoy every hug, smile and moment.

Rudy goes home to his owner in Canyon Lake today.

Our reprieve will be short lived bc we get Fifi June 17th-25th. She's a sweet teeny 3-1/2 pound very old, toothless toy poodle. DIL MaryAnn loves wee Fifi to pieces, so we'll take good care of her.

It will be awesome to be down to one dog and only one for a while.

Tsa pre check worked great, though lines weren't bad anyway. We allowed lot's of time..so I will be doing a lot of walking indoors this morning.

Glad the rain has let up for you Jean. We finally got a good dousing and the upcoming week is to be nice..kids will be watering...hope plants and garden will be ok.
