Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!

You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks

Fantasticalizing Friday!!!!!!!!


I thought the weather was going to poop on my parade but nope .. Kathy texted me before I could text her yesterday and it's on !!!! 10:00 this morning I'll be at their house .. :) Something new again !!! :)

Yesterday was a good day .. and with doing laps around the house "chasing my golf ball around the course" .. I got in 8324 steps (and of course just average "stepping" .. around the house, and just average walking to and fro) ... but I'm happy with my ending number .. :) Which means I made it through the icky weather .. Normally the weather goes funky, and then I go funky .. and my steps and activity suffers .. but I DID IT !!! WOOHOO !!!!

Kathy asked me yesterday if I wanted the 30 minute walk, or can I handle the hour walk .. I told her I usually don't "time myself".... (but my adventures (don't consider them walks .. walks sounds soooo boring .. lol .. (more mind games usually last about an hour or more .. ) I told her, that as long as it isn't power walking (I do wish to continue breathing .. lol) hour walks are no problems .. lol .. so we shall see, but I'm excited, because I've been looking forward to this, and I've been looking forward again to my fresh air walks .. and I've been looking forward to getting steps (and enjoying doing so .. lol) Once I know where the park is, I can go there anytime, even though it's quite a trek from my house, but sometimes it would be worth it !!!!

The house stopped howling mid to late afternoon yesterday .. yes.. my house howls .. the front door plays alot of trombone during the windy weather .. but we're used to it .. it happens .. some houses "rattle the rafters" .. ours plays trombone .. lol lol .. turns into white noise after a while .. :)

99.9% of the snow that was on the ground yesterday (and the grass was covered) is now gone .. Thankfully .. because as I was leaving yesterday morning for Chair Yoga ... the streets in our subdivision were COVERED with robin red breasts .. :( .... The one street had at least 30-40 robins ... My thoughts is that they were having an important meeting; I believe they were impeaching Mother Nature ... and from the lack of snow this morning .. it looks like they succeeded !!!!

I DID get to Chair Yoga yesterday even though my heart just wasn't in it .. Between the weather, and sleeping in .. it just wasn't a good match .. For all the "good" that is written about exercising first thing in the morning, it has never been a good thing for me .. I always say ..I was born butt end backwards, and pretty much that's my life .. butt end backwards .. lol .. and I do much better doing heavier exercise later in the day .. Even used to do my stationary bike right before bed .. Exercise helps me sleep .. so exericising first thing in the morning .. is pretty dangerous for me !!!!! and my heart just was NOT in it .. but hubby urged me to go .. and after seeing the road .. the winds were nasty, but the roads weren't bad .... soooo I went ....

The good news is because I was not fully energized to go .. I wasn't over zealous in the exerices while I got the benefits, I didn't get the pain that I normally do ..YAY ME !!!! Instead of over doing the positions; (no pain no gain attitude) I got the benefits, paid attention to what muscles are supposed to be working, and actually felt good by the end of the hour .. even though the energy level just wasn't quite there yet .. lol ..

I got home, and hubby and I were going to use one of his birthday food coupons for Golden Corral buffet ... I was proud of myself .. while I ate alot, I didn't walk out of the restaurant .. uuuuugggghhhh .... but just ... ugh ... lol .. no .. I was honestly feeling pretty good .. :) I felt sorry for hubby, because my first plate I made a loaded potato, and he went up for his second plate, and they were all out of potatoes .. I told him people probably saw what I was doing, and jumped in .. because there were alot of them there when I got mine .. lol ..

We got home, and I worked for a bit on mom's birthday card .. and got a pretty good chunk done .. and I started thinking of her mothers day card .. (all within the same week) .. I told hubby I wanted to make a get well card for his friend from Monday Wii bowling .. Toni .. she's also the one that got me into the chair yoga .. she had a fainting spell and hairline fractured some of her ribs .. She doesn't know what happened, she just woke up and she was on the floor .. and she lives alone .. so I told hubby that I was thinking of making up a get well card .. so that's one more card to make up ..

So it was a quiet afternoon, icky VERY windy weather, and I sat on my butt more than I wanted .. We played our Wii Golf, our tee time was 6:00 yesterday .. and I'm happy with the -3 that I did get when all was said and done .. and I got some steps around the house .. :)

Last night .. surprisingly .. I slept like the proverbially dead ... and feel great this morning .. After we finish with the "walk" .. we're supposed to go to a pub and grill in the area for fish fry ... I think it's called "Lake Church Pub and Grill" and I'm gonna have "poor mans lobster" ... yummmmmmm !!!!!

That's the life of Sally ... :) and even with Mother Nature's hissy fit, I'm still in my happy place .. I hope you are too !!! :) Have a wonderful day !!!!! I'm going to !!!! :)

    I just sat and enjoyed Mother nature's hiss fit!

    I like night time exercises as well. It helps me sleep plus it warms me up so I am warm when I go to sleep!

    Nice walk!

    Saw the sun and KNEW you’d be a happy camper!

    Yes, I would vote w/those robins to impeach Mother Nature. ACK!

    Well, good you got to chair yoga anyhow. Sometimes it turns out good even if we ‘don’t wanna do it’.

    Sorry to hear about Toni. How scary! But that’s nice to make her a get well card.

    Have a great time today!
