I'm okay, Soxy. We went from freezing our butts off to sweating our skin off, but that's Missouri for you! The Sox are battling the Yankees for first in the division. ALWAYS those D@)(*%& Yankees! My eating has been a little outta control and I'm working hard to get that under control. Dropping all that dairy has kinda freaked my body out. Or maybe it's the weather. Who can say? Well, three minutes until I am on the clock so I'll catch y'all later!

The Red Bud (or Judas Tree) at the end of the platform in my meditation garden has sprinkled its red buds all over the platform. it's so pretty! I lost all but 2 of my lavender to the cold snap and I'm not sure how many of my Russian Sage are left.

I made frozen raviolis tonight and wished I had fresh basil. C'mon spring! You can do it!

YIKES! BeccaBoo! That's scary!

We had the California or Peyri Pepper trees in our yards growing up. I looked at our old house on Google Maps the other day and the Pepper tree, the Silk Oak, the Gardenias and the Camelias are all gone. emoticon

I miss seeing the bumble bees in my yard near my pepper tree. My nephew is enjoying them, I am sure.

Nephew was opening the gate to take out the trash the other day, and a hoard of military like police came charging down my driveway with their rifles telling him to get back indoors. They were chasing a murder suspect who ended up holing himself in a house only two blocks down from my house.

I am on holiday at my sister's house. I don't mind missing that sort of fun. Sheesh!

I'm so happy to see so many honey bees in my yard right now! It's been too wet to mow and we have a, er, mountain meadow thing going on in our yard right now so the bees are very happy. I also got some pansies for Fiona (Pansies for heart's ease) and some heather because she wanted to be a Highland collie SO MUCH! The bees are loving those as well.

The meeting went well. Drove to Rolla to see Mom. Got back in time for the dinner before the rains hit. The dinner went well and I can now brush the dust of this person's negativity off my hands and out of my area and move forward !

Not much on the books for today. Clean, cook, prep for work. I've got Monday off for Patriot's Day! Woot! Woot!

Crazy day today. I'm heading into work after the gym because someone that WASN'T going to come today IS coming today and I need to discuss some upcoming changes. Sigh. So much for my 4 day weekend!

And THEN there's a going away 'party' for the thorn-in-my-side who is leaving us. As the lead in our division I feel I should go but I'm not sure how long I'll stay. Sigh. Obligations!

We are expecting a big snow this weekend. The lack of sun from winter gives me the doldrums.

Can't wait for spring...true spring!

Good to know you know where to report it! My pal got almost half his home value stolen from his attorney and real estate outfit.

Today, I have made very simple meals. Microwaveable Steele cut oats for breakfast, and a BLT for lunch.

I think I will order a rotisserie chicken for dinner.

We almost have all the fall-out from Mom's reverse mortgage taken care of. The mortgage specialist at State Farm said SOME people, especially in the early days of these mortgages did well, but the group my mom found is horrific and, trust me, the Attorney General of Missouri will have my opinion of their practices!

Tomorrow is my favorite race and it's supposed to be a nice day! With this wound and how icky the antibiotics make me feel I'm not exactly expecting a PR, but it's still an amazing run. I'll be getting my Kicks on Route 66!!!

I feel ya, Becca on getting used to cold again after being warm.

Have a great day everyone!

We've got a couple note inches of snow and it is still snowing. Sis took petey out for his morning constitutional thank goodness. I can't get used to the cold again when I was running around in shirt sleeves the other day!

Hope everyone enjoys their day! I plan on doing some recumbent bike and reading in bed.

Our little beagle has a terrible time getting through the snow! Fiona, my Border Collie will lie out in it for hours. When I try to get her to come in she tells me : They love snow in the Highlands, Momma. She really feels her heritage!

We got eight inches of snow the other day! Pooch Petey loves snow and went crawling around through the entire back yard. He is only a miniature poodle. I helped him get the snow off his legs once inside.

First race of the season. I am still not feeling 100% after being sick all last week. I tried to lift yesterday but couldn't even manage the entire hour of Body Pump. Even with virtually no weight on my bar. My hope for this run? Don't Die!

And the rain moved in earlier than expected. My poor pups are terrified of thunder so we all had a restless night.

I decided to switch up my gym time and go during the day : Body Pump and Sprint! Have a great day, everyone.

I had a masseuse in cali who also did adjustments on my shoulder. He got rid of pain I'd had for ten years!

I can't wait to get out there again. If you find someone who's talented, it is wonderful. Not everyone is good at what they do.

I got my car down out of the barn, but there was more slipping & sliding than I like and the actual driveway is a tenth of a mile downhill. I can't drive that without using brakes and brakes + ice = skid...so home for now...at least until it warms up a bit.

Well, I skipped the gym because of the ice. The roads in town are getting salted already, says a friend, but the 2 lane that gets me from my lovely dirt road to town is 2 miles of curves and cants toward the river and the ice is supposed to get worse before it gets better. I have a lot that I can do at home & will pull out a workout in a bit...but I did want to do my RPM this morning.

Oooh. I've only ever had one massage and it was after a run and was very short, but I liked it!
If Congress would decide it's going to fund the government I want to see if the Chiropractor can help with my shoulder. My daughter gets massages and adjustments and it's made a world of difference in her life.

I feel kind of guilty thinking "Ugh! FINALLY it's Friday." It's not very mindful, after all. Or maybe it is! I will get out and pump some iron; I will see my Mom; I will do some grocery shopping to set me up for another healthy week; I will soak up the sun!I will glory in the day, even if it is only 20 degrees F!

Yea! One day off (used it to advantage to go to the gym!)
Now we have to sweat another possibility of a shut down in a few weeks.
It's been like this for so long...Ah well. Service to country has its down sides and its upsides as well. As in all things, we take the bad with the good.

I try to live mindfully, but when you're at your desk with long underwear, jeans, three shirts a jacket, fingerless gloves and a blanket over your lap it's hard not to dream of daffodils!

glad you got some blankets. We were supposed to get two inches, but it is more than that. It's a very tiny snowflake that is lightly coming down but it adds up!

We were going to get possibly eight inches of snow preceded by 2 inches of ice!

We got just a glaze of ice and only two inches of snow. It is 17 degrees now which I consider pretty warm!

I lived in Cali for decades and had "thin blood"--unable to tolerate the cold, but my blood is thicker now!

We were supposed to get a light dusting of snow moving quickly through. Um, Looking now like it's set to stick around most of the day. This winter has been tough already with much more to come. I think it's particularly tricky after so many warmer winters.

Back to the grind! Lots to do, though at the beginning of the year, though for us the crunch usually comes in September / October with the beginning of the fiscal year.

Now I just have to worry about a government shut down! Life on the edge.

Well, January 6th is here so my Christmas tree is coming down. I went out to my mom's and took down her little tree yesterday. She said she'll miss lookng at it so I'm trying to find some sort of light-up Valentine's Day decoration emoticon

I go back to work on Monday, and my new gym schedule starts this week, so this weekend will be prepping foods and clothes and getting my head back into THAT game!

I am working on staying more organized, or at least more on top of things this year. Wish me luck!

I am so excited that Les Mills has found a home! Whew. I am less thrilled that it looks like my workout days are going to change. Ah well, better Tues & Thurs than never! And it looks like I will be doing Zumba again, at least for this month.

Hanging out. Al is making a chicken tonight (probably roasting as it's awfully cold to smoke it) I usually do New Years Day....I often do a riff on Black Eyed Peas & Ham...so not quite sure what that's going to be this year.

I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K in St. Louis yesterday. We went out to Pi for Pizza afterwards, but ate a healthy appetizer (Hummus & veg) and a nice, big salad, so when the pizza came we just ate one piece. AND we walked, well, hobbled the half mile to the Pizza place

Got 5 cards in mail today. A "drop in the bucket". But I shopped for two needy 10 year olds, picked up prescriptions for DH and got some things needed at store. Made business calls and printed out some of the Christmas letters. Did hour of water aerobics, too.
No wonder I am tired!!!

This year for Thanksgiving I made one of those 'quick' crusty yeast breads that you let rise as a sponge for 3+ hours then dump into a hot dutch oven and bake off.
I also made some quick knots. Half of those I brushed with garlic butter. YUM!
But I've made a million different types of bread over the years. I LOVE baking bread but we just don't eat as much of it as we used to.
I probably make more flatbread than anything else anymore.

Thanks, Carol! All the broo-ha-ha of whether or not I could go & getting everything sorted was a pain, but so worth it in the end.

You are not alone in the weather department. Our kids live in NC and OH and both are having extremes of weather. Last Saturday our daughter sent photo of snow and ice on windshield in Columbus and said she never saw snow so early there. Up and down is the name of the game!!!
Enjoy your week-end!

Not at all, Carol. Glad you all are having good weather. This is a typical Missouri autumn where one day it's 86 degrees F and the next day it's 36 degrees. The colors this year are amazing, though. emoticon

Will I hurt your feelings if I tell you we are going to have 85 degrees for one solid week and that I have been swimming almost every day? We did have a few cool days last week-end, but still sunny and beautiful. Guess Florida deserves this!

Whew! It was a crazy week at my conference last week, but I learned some good things and met some great people and had a fabulous time! Ate well MOST of the time emoticon The new image is of Jeweled couscous, chicken, and butternut squash with tahini and feta. Have a great day everyone!

Raining here as well but it is cold. After having such a long fall of nice weather I don't look forward to the colder weather.

A rainy day here at my place. We need it so much, and it's a nice, soft rain, so no real complaints.

Thanks, Carol.
I got done earlier than expected and went home before heading out to the gym.

I have to go to Rolla for my mom's quarterly meeting at the Residential Home. And RIGHT at lunch time! So I'm eating a good, filling breakfast, taking a healthy snack and then getting a healthy salad at the Panera Bread there. Planning makes Possibilities!

Grrr. So, I usually work a compressed schedule which means that on week ONE I work 4x9 hour days and 1x8 hour day; week TWO I work 4x9 hour days and I get that Friday off! It's a great way to make sure I have a day off every two weeks if I need to make an appointment or whatever.
Because I'm doing this conference in Richmond next week, and because it tips its way through two pay periods, I have to revert to 5x8 hour days for the next month emoticon
I know it's not the end of the world, but my life is, obviously, planned around my usual schedule. I guess a (short term) change is good for the soul????

Thanks, Carol! I have the added advantage that my Uncle lives nearby so I am hoping to get to see him!

I did that many moons ago. The first time is terrifying but memorable. You'll want to do it again. I'm glad it all worked out for you.

I don't think it was on purpose...I work for the government so that's half the problem!
However, things have worked out and as terrified as I am I AM GOING TO RICHMOND! I am so excited about what the conference is about, but doing something like this on my own is so outside my comfort zone it's not even funny. But I can do this!
