Well, I didn't get the windows washed today.. and the weather was even decent! I had good intentions but after I got back from the gym, I went outside and decided to continue with the clean-up project started yesterday. It went well and I ended up getting the patio completely cleared and hosed down. I also hosed the adjoining walkway and it now looks like something that we actually might be able to use! Tomorrow the DH plans to take a load to the dump while I do my long run. I usually do my long run on Sunday, but need to change it to Saturday this week as we are leaving on a short camping trip Sunday. I haven't gotten in much running mileage this week so I'm hoping that weather conditions stay okay tomorrow and that my luck doesn't run out.

I have managed to keep my 20,000 daily step streak alive this week.. In fact, I was shocked to see how many steps I got in today just working outside. We have a pretty long drive-way and carting the wheelbarrow up and down the driveway to the garden shed really adds up. I got in 20,000 today without even doing an afternoon walk!

    Yay for the cleaning phase and all the steps you have added up. I managed to really rack up a ton of steps on our vacation. Now I'm back to really pushing myself to get my 20,000....but it's all good! emoticon

    Sounds like a good day even if the windows didn't make the cut....of course I seem to procrastinate on windows myself.....I'll get other jobs done quite quickly that I've put off....in order to avoid windows....LOL.

    Ahhhhhh yes Spring in the north, I remember it well, and all the cleaning up after the winter we use to do too. Don't miss it at ALL. Here in Florida it's just an ongoing thing, love it. Enjoy your outside space now !!! and your mini camping trip.

    It must have felt really good to get the whole patio area cleaned up. I swear, I think a good chemical change happens in the brain as a result of cleaning something up. After a long day of cleaning (or even just doing one or two cleaning tasks), I'll lie in bed reveling in the images of whatever I've cleaned. Makes my spirit feel all cleaned up, too!

    It's fortunate that your driveway is long and is helping to keep you fit!
