Partly rainy day today
Tuesday, August 11, 2015      3 comments

I went for my walk early today so I wouldn't get rained out, did extra laps around the hay field, which ended up being 70 minutes. I am sure happy to get my fitbit back and linked to MFP and SP, for some reason the fitbit challenges me to get ... Read more
Busy day on the farm

I got a lot done today, the big thing was doing some spot spraying in the hayfield, that sure is exercise, walking around with about 65 lbs on your back for 2 1/2 hours! I did some picking up and weeding in my herb garden and in the yard in gen... Read more
Calliope's Kittens are here!
Sunday, August 09, 2015      15 comments

Calliope was really restless last night, wanting to go out then in then out, I finally left her on the door step for a while about the 4th time. When I went back to check her she was waiting to come in. When it was time to go to bed she went ... Read more
The "First night off tireds"
Saturday, August 08, 2015      6 comments

I got to bed at a more reasonable time this morning, about 11 or so, I am making a point of eating my breakfast before I leave work now. That takes care of missing a meal due to sleep and running errands, and I feel better. Last night a... Read more
4 12 hour nights is just too long!

Tonight is my third night, and usually it would be my last night, but due to short handedness I am working an extra night this week. It has been quite busy tonight, first picking up from the day crew and the mess they left us, then the ER being... Read more
Flex died tonight, and inspiring people to exercise
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      11 comments

Wow you get lost without your tracker, my flex just suddenly stopped working about 5:30 tonight, no lights at all. I reset it multiple times and put it on the charger but nothing at all. So I guess I stop at 10 K steps today. This flex is a r... Read more
Long list of things to do, almost all done!
Tuesday, August 04, 2015      6 comments

My list for Monday was way too long but I finally finished it today! I think that is why I gave up lists a few years ago. I did finish the stuff today before going for a nap. I think I created a monster in Tiger, he sits outside the door... Read more
Berry picking day!
Monday, August 03, 2015      15 comments

Today was a disjointed day. I made cookies in the morning for dinner tonight, and finished up de-boneing the turkey for soup. My neighbor came over to help me cut some dead branches out of a maple tree, while he was up there he also cut a huge... Read more
Getting stuff done on the farm
Saturday, August 01, 2015      7 comments

I got up late again today, mostly because I got to bed late! It was well after 1am before I got in bed, it is a vicious circle that starts with the last work night, and continues through several nights off, along about the 5th or 6th night my ... Read more
Quiet day

I went to bed quite late last night, so slept in this morning. Calliope is sticking close to me, I am not sure exactly when she is due but it must be soon, she is quite big, and cranky, she isn't usually cranky. I can't seem to get into ... Read more

I got an urgent message yesterday early morning to call Vinalhaven, I knew it was going to be bad news. My niece and very good friend was going down hill fast, she started a GI bleed along with the multiple problems she has. I talked to her b... Read more
Slow work night, edited to add pictures of quilt
Tuesday, July 28, 2015      9 comments

There was not much to do last night, so boring to be here all night for one patient in 12 hours! I brought my quilting stuff and worked on sewing the triangles to the lattice strips, I was so excited to get them all done! That was over 400 lit... Read more
Work week already
Monday, July 27, 2015      5 comments

Seems like my one day off sure went fast, too much to do and too much left undone. My un-clutter program is kind of stalling, I uncluttered a bunch of places and when I looked at a couple of them they were cluttered again! I think the la... Read more

I am very tired from the longer then usual work week, and the not very many nights off twice in a row. I tried to get some stuff done, house things, load the dishwasher, did load of laundry, picked up the kitchen, took out garbage. Put the 5 t... Read more
What happened to Saturday?
Sunday, July 26, 2015      3 comments

It is one of the many odd things about working nights, the missing days. The last night of work is usually the day I do errands because I live so far from any stores. So I did my errands, had to stop at the grain store to exchange a bag of gra... Read more
