Apparently you don't have a hose that contracts to a tiny package! At least the heavy hose adds to your workout. I don't have the patience to grow stuff. I am trying to nurture a desert elm, but I have nearly killed the little thing several times. It is getting root bound. Maybe I will transpot it today.

I did a lot of dragging the hose around to water my very dry ground. Then, it rained about .5 inches or more!! :)

What a joy to go hiking! Yesterday we were outside on the roof. Our resident roadrunner was up there too, watching us cautiously for a while. There are crows and ravens all over the place. We got a few more boards in place before the winds came up. Today it was windy before we even got out of bed. No construction today. Any exercise we do will be indoors!

I like your story. Now I know when a person is called a snake, you don;t trust them.

I have had dogs that would place themselves between me and the snake - which is problematic while shooting the darn things. The Cherokee people feel that it is bad luck to kill a rattlesnake. I feel it is bad luck to be bitten by one! My wife is part Cherokee and she feels the same way. Other snakes are welcome to hang out and keep the rodent population in check.

I once tried to save the rattles, but they came apart when I cut them from the bone. What is the trick?

Cherokee story. A young man went out to gather wood one frosty morning. He bent down to pick up a stick, but realized it was, instead, a rattlesnake, uncoiled and frozen. It would have been a simple thing to kill it in its defenseless state. But, feeling pity for the creature and remembering that it was bad luck to kill a rattler, he carefully placed him inside his coat to warm him up. In a few minutes, he could feel the snake begin to wrigģle and writhe.
He opened his coat to check on it, but it reared back its head and struck him on the face.
Astonished, the young man said, "I saved you from freezing to death, and this is how you repay me?"
The snake simply replied, "You knew I was a rattlesnake when you picked me up!"
The moral is, don't expect kindness to be recognized or repaid by (a person who is like) a rattlesnake!

So scary! I'm glad your dog was ok. I'm glad you torched it too. We had one here years ago. We killed it and I kept the rattles. I have no problem killing those snakes that could kill me emoticon

My computer is situated near the screen door. A few feet away is Shellie's water dish and food bowl. So natural I jumped to my feet when I heard the distinctive rattle of a rattlesnake. It was rattling at Shellie, who simply wanted a drink of water. We had to shoot the snake, which was a 28 inch Mohave Green. These guys have a neurotoxic venom. I hated killing the snake, but it is endangering my dog and I am not qualified to "handle" a rattlesnake.
Using a shovel and a rake, I placed the snake in the burn barrel, raked up a patch of tumbleweeds and torched that sucker.

I spent more time at the shooting range, but our target was only at 50 feet instead of 50 yards. Still, I had to drag the dang thing about 20 feet. It is made of heavy steel.We shopped at WalMart too, which required a lot of hoofing time. This morning we unloaded the truck. I carried a 35 pound bottle of drinking water into the kitchen. Ufda!

Yesterday was spent outside at the shooting range with all my cowboy and cowgirl friends. I helped with the loading and off-loading of our big, 80 pound buffalo target. Helped with the set up of other targets on a different "stage". I did a lot of walking on behalf of Brie, who is still struggling with a sciatica attack.

Today, I actually took a three hour nap! Actually, I had taken a tramadol last night for pain in my neck, head and shoulders. The after effect of that med is that it tires me out the next day. And it is not very effective for dealing with that pain, anyways.

After my nap, we grilled some skirt steaks. YUM!

I danced in the rain. We met our daughter at a campsite close by and actually got rain for about 10 minutes. It cooled us down a bit from 106 heat. I got my grand kids out there to dance in it. What fun and didn't care who was watching and my daughter took pic!! emoticon emoticon

I have decided to turn a small storage shelf sideways so that I can sit properly at my work table. I caused a lot of achiness by sitting without my back supported. I did a lot of core exercise last night to relief the pain from my hips to my shoulder blades. That helped a lot, and so did the Absorbine topical ointment.
But situating the under-table cabinets will relief a lot of the stress because I will be able to get closer to my work!

While waiting for the internet guy to show up, I actually went outside, gradded a hoe and started attacking weeds. The guy never showed, again, but I did 20 minutes of digging. Our address does not show up on the map data base which they use. But we contacted the company today and we agreed to meet him at May's Cafe 5 miles from home, and we will guide him to our place.

Stayed on my feet and did lots of walking for the four hours of the cowboy shooting match. Raked up brass for half an hour and helped take down the targets at the end of the match. Didn't compete but had lots of fun, anyway!

we have been running around El Paso doing our monthly shopping. I spent two hours in the dentists chair doing isometric exercises! root canal. ugh.
( I return Wednesday for more cleaning, and the following week, the new crown will be ready.)
We also spent time at the shooting range, walking to and from the target. I don't know how many calories that burns, but I'm losing weight. The first week after pay day, I tend to eat high calorie meal, so I probably won't lose weight this week

Climb to the roof. Light construction for an hour. Followed by a frantic scramble to stow the tools when it started raining!

We are surrounded by clouds. Brie and I counted three thunderstorms to the south. But a heat bubble sits over our area. There were blue skies directly overhead. So Brie and I climbed up to the roof. We measured one panel of OSB plywood, cut it and fit it into place. And we managed to do that without the breeze snatching it away from us. However, the sun and the breeze was enough to dehydrate us. Brie noticed that she was short of breath, I had noticed that she was uncharacteristicly grouchy. Wisely, she called it a day and climbed down to the truck and turned on the air conditioner. I stowed the tools and joined her. We drove to the Spanish Angels cafe in Dell City and each got big glasses of ice water. Then Joe and Patti made us some grilled chicken sandwiches and baked seasoned french fries. It wasn't the healthiest of meals, but we were grateful.
We need to be more careful with these deceptive clouds! SHEESH, Brie's military training taught her to recognize the symptoms. I'm glad she called it a day!

Lightning was too close so we did not swim, and rained briefly while eating dinner!
We had a great dinner, taked about horses, airplanes, shotguns, and even shot his crossbow afterwards.
As we finished our visit, a beautiful rainbow arched across the sky. What a grand finish to a great day.

In the future I will be certain to post photos of the buckskin tunic that I am working on!

It doesn't take much to make our poochers happy! More weeds to chop??? Imagine that!

Let my dogs run free in a fenced area of the my property that I don't let them have access to. They were so excited. Me, not so much. I walked the area and chopped down weeds. Lol!
Enjoy your weekend all.

I admire dogs who run alongside their human on a bicycle. My guess is that would be hard to train them for.

38 minute bike ride. Trying out a bike that was given to me. It needs adjustments but will work for me. Dogs didn't like being left behind, so when I got back I took all 3 for a 18 walk. We are happy and all resting inside out of the heat now.

Wowwie, those storms sound impressive!

I tried to convince my old dog to go for a walk. She looked at me, llooked at the open gate and turned her back! She is probably over 10 years old and probably has arthritis. The place has lots of thorns and the ground is hot, so I can't blame her!

For two days I have had to keep a close eye on the sky as well as weather reports. Day & Night! Plenty of storms. Luckily I have been on the fringe of most and mostly just had the wind and rain. Trying to sleep now but alerted out of bed by hail & wind. Luckily mostly on the edge again. Going to have to unwater my plants again at my camper! Weekend looks good. I'll do my best to get my steps in. emoticon emoticon Signed, Temporarily Indoor Girl emoticon

Went to a fantastic Farmers Market and bought vegetables and more vegetables! When it cools down this afternoon I will finish my steps to 10,000.
Good job SHOCOSS. What a good friend you are. I would have been tempted to go without my friend. emoticon

I met a friend and walked for 70 minutes. Started at 8:30 so she could sleep in on here day off work. When we finished at 9:40 it was already 96 degrees. Definitely need to start earlier

Today was 105 degrees. That didn't stop us from going to the outdoor shooting range on the base. We spent an hour shooting and walking back and forth to our target stand 30 yards away. Then I did some squats and lunges while picking up brass.

Shocoss, glad to know that your shed is done.

Chrysaĺis, nice to have a get-away place for your hobbies.

DreamerSpirit! Dancing is the funnest way to lose weight!

Sundance, you live in Arizona, so being alive probably burns calories! Water aerobics sounds like a solution. Are you close to a YMCA?

I didn't get out in nature, but I did get outside! I went to Rhode Island Pride and had a really great day out! I walked around Providence for the day, and danced the night away at an outdoor block party! I didn't get home until dawn!

We have lots of family in AZ. They want us to retire there. I don't think I can do it. When visiting my biggest surprise was that even at night the sidewalk is to hot to be barefoot. Or the wind feels the same as when I open my oven! I bet
