I am thankful that Spring is almost here! Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, which means an early spring! and........Tomorrow in Japan is known as Setsubun which is the day before the Japanese first day of spring. When I was a child I had a pen pal in Kyoto, Japan and she told me that they throw soy beans to the four winds to chase out the evil spirits that have come to live in the home during the winter. People throw roasted soy beans and shout "oni wa so to" (get out demons) and "fu ku wa uchi" (come in happiness.) I remember this because tomorrow is my birthday.
In many parts of Asia, the first day of Spring is celebrated on February 4th, because it is the midpoint between the vernal equinox and the winter solstice.

the next 3 days would be a great time to work out to the tapes as it is so cold, or do some organizing.
doing a lot of housekeeping/cleaning ..climbing , lifting, pulling, pushing, stair climbing, etc

This weekend would be perfect for so many things: get those storm windows on, put away the summer items, clean the windows (outside) for the season, harvest last of the garden, cut back the perennials, clean the grill, close up the cabin unless you plan to mush up there in the winter, move the lawnmower so you have access to the snowblower, take a walk and admire the leaves, perhaps grill one last time and cook up a lot that you can freeze so you can enjoy the grilled food during the winter! Put those plants still in pots in the ground, at least sink the pots in the ground so they survive the winter. Get your pillows and comforters outside to freshen them.

Great! I'm thinking more next weekend - all the moving this week has really worn me down. Tomorrow is the last day. If we make it next weekend, I can send out a team email and invite everyone! I'll try to do that for Monday. I have a few things to do on Friday and I might just relax some this weekend. Some unpacking but not so much in one day.

My weekends are usually pretty open. (insert mournful violins here) A few days notice should be fine!

I'd like to go to the ?Warner? Nature Center on Lexington Ave. - it's kind of Shoreview - almost to the City of Lexington. I will have to check my weekend schedule this week - otherwise next weekend. How far ahead do you need to know?

Yeah, I'm the one. I work for US Bank in the West Side Flats in St. Paul. I start my walk around noonish every day, and go up the Wabasha St. bridge, and then come back via the Roberts St. bridge.

That Northtown walk sounds like it could be a lot of fun, and I'd be up for exploring the parks too, as long as it's on weekends. You just let me know the details!

Sylvia -
I did want it to become more active and started the Northtown mall walking. I got a great turnout the first weekend - according to the mall security people but not many after that. I've been so busy with moving the last couple months that I haven't done much BUT move! This is my last week of that! Even if I still have all the unpacking and sorting through a few boxes, I would love to do some park exploring. Sorry I dropped the ball on that this summer! I'll get back to you for something either next week or over the weekend. Are you still working? If I remember, you're the one who walks the bridges in downtown, right? I'm running too many stairs with boxes right now to NOT "relax" the rest of the day! I've been going for 2 hours or more in the mornings - after I unload the car, then going back again at night. But the end is in sight and I should have it all!

Anoka County isn't that big. We shop at the same stores, we travel the same routes to work, and we fight the same battles and we fear the same fears - SO many things in common - so why aren't we more active? Why aren't we reaching out to each other?

Seriously. We've got maybe two months left of good weather before it's back to the gym and the treadmills that we're currently using as clothes racks for our workouts. This isn't the time for cocooning yet. And speaking just for myself, I'd way rather go bike riding with friends who share my struggles than alone. I'd way rather go to the zoo with Sparkneighbors than just with my husband. Et cetera.

We've used so many wonderful resources on this site, and I think we've been missing one incredible one that's been staring us right in the faces. So, what do you say?
