Day 692 - M

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

Thomas A. Edison


Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) says the old adage "Work smart, not hard" is just about the worst advice anyone could give a person. Mike says.....'Work smart AND hard". In other words, yes, give it everything you've got - go the extra mile - stay late - get there early - work HARD - give it 110% - don't be afraid to sweat or get a little breathless - show up - BE there. Yes, he's really onto something. This is just what our lifestyle changes require - that we go the extra mile - NEVER quit (US Navy SEALs mantra) - don't take short cuts - sweat - challenge your respiration - eat healthy food for fuel. Yep, the payoff is priceless. Mr. Edison is saying the same thing, just a little differently.


Another BIG, BIG day!!! Spent a whole lot of time in the wood pile - stacking, filling the wheelbarrow, hauling wood. Then lots of raking. TONS of leaves here in the woods. Ran 2 bus routes and got the cardio walking in. Jetta LOVES it when we split, cut & stack wood. She gets so excited she barks at us!! Funny girl.

Mileage: 9.70 miles

Hope your Friday was fabulous!!!!!! 'Til tomorrow..... emoticon emoticon

    Yesterday was supposed to be a half day at work. We're being watched for leave time. I had to stay until reg leave time and the rest of the clinic stayed for most of that. I went on working at my desk taking care of things that would normally wait until Mon. A coworker asked why I was pushing....I told her I didn't want to come in to a busy morning when I could get a lot of it done beforehand. I try to do what I'm told as soon as I get the instructions. In the long run...maybe no one notices, but I do...and so does God. I have promised to get my organization in order....and step by step, I'm cleaning Honey's house and making a dent in my own hoarding. I appreciate your posts. You think and take time and it show. Thank you for going beyond the norm. Be blessed and keep Sparkin'!!!

    I miss having a fireplace to stack wood for, especially during the holidays.
