Our local hawk came and sat on the fence this morning. It doesn't startle when we are speaking quietly. We haven't had a close-up sighting since spring.

The very shy cardinals in our yard are becoming far less skittish. Mrs. Cardinal sat on our fence early this morning, checking to see if I would put out any birdseed. She used to vanish if she saw me. Later, when I went out to the car, she hopped up on the fence again, until I got very close. I spoke gently to her and she didn't seem to mind my presence.

When I got home from thrift store shopping yesterday, I left the bag of clothes sitting on top of the dryer overnight. This morning found both cats had pulled some clothes out and were curled up together on top of them.


My new purchases are kitty approved emoticon

Over the weekend, my weight bounced way up. It was mostly due to a few small changes in diet during the long weekend and also weather, I think. (I retain water during high heat and humidity.) Most of it has gone away--just 1 extra pound is lurking this morning.

I've recently been thinking about increasing my upper body workouts. Just now, I was able to use Spark to generate one for me, instead of reinventing the wheel. Hooray for good use of available resource and getting it done, instead of continuing to ponder various options.

I've printed out the pages, will put them in sleeves and a notebook, so I can bring that into the work gym to refer to.

I got some nice and unexpected swim encouragement from several really good swimmers in the last few days. There's plenty of room to improve still ahead, but I feel good about how far I've progressed this year. (A year ago, I was just beginning to return to the pool after my injury and surgery.)

Houdini is dragging the blanket to the bedroom again. That cat cracks me up. Once he finally got it there, he came out and crawled up on the couch for a nap LOL!

Also smiling because we went out to dinner today and a lady in a corner booth about 25 feet away was crying and visibly upset. I asked our waitress if she was ok and found out the brakes on her car had gone out COMPLETELY in the intersection, almost causing an accident. Her car had been pushed into the service station two doors down to be checked out and she had come to the restaurant to calm down.

The lady (who was around 80 years old) ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and cup of coffee. I'm smiling because the waitress helped me to secretly pay for her meal and when it was time for her to leave (after us) was going to tell her another customer thought she deserved a break today.

Thanks Callie!

YAY for your 20 minutes walk Jo!

Houdini crawled up into DH's lap today to take a nap. FIRST TIME EVER!

He always wants to lay on me and Rascal Too lays on DH. They are both napping sweetly now.

Another thing that made me smile today was this article on Sparkpeople about caffeine...and it helps prevent dementia!

This morning went pretty smoothly with "patient care" and chores, and I still managed to leave for work on time so I could get in a 20-minute walk first.

We have this two sided fleece throw that weighs about three pounds next to DH's lift chair so that he can cover himself if he gets chilly. Houdini has adopted it and can often be seen kneading it and purring.

This morning he dragged it all the way into the bedroom, about 40 feet. DH was in his chair and chilly so he rang his bell for me to retrieve his blanket. A few minutes later, here comes Houdini dragging MY fleece throw from the bedroom. I guess he is letting us know not to steal "his" blanket.

Amazed at how strong this cat is :)

I deputized T to go buy petunias (with very specific instructions). It looked like he did a great job. I'll be able to get them into the planters this weekend and don't have to brave the garden supply store on the biggest gardening weekend here.

Callie, I like to scare myself with things that seem impossible or scary to me now and then. :-)

Think of it as an opportunity to inspire and help more people, by making your words available to a wider audience. You'd be making it accessible for those who weren't able to attend.

Something to consider: dealing with the various challenges life has thrown at you is much scarier than giving the speech you were going to give anyway. Perhaps your video would help lessen someone else's burden.

I'm smiling because I tried out the Y pool that is near work last night and I think it will work out well for me to swim laps there during my Y pool closure this summer! Depending on how busy it is in the summer, I may also be able to do some water aerobics there on my own sometimes.

My weight is still up a little bit from the Easter festivities, but I am smiling because I tried on a pair of my "skinny" jeans Sunday afternoon. They are still a little snug, but I was able to button and zip them. Hopefully I'll be wearing them in a few weeks!

I am loving the rowing machine in the gym at work. I am still only doing 5 minutes on it, and will have to increase very gradually, but so far the "rocking" motion hasn't been too much for my ankles and knees. I had my own rowboat as a kid, so this is pleasant and doesn't feel like work to me!

oooh, Callie, those baby cheeks are so sweet! The little triplets came to swim class last Saturday and they needed a helper since grandpa couldn't join them. I had one of the little guys for the whole class and he didn't fuss a bit. (Last time, they weren't having a great day so we had to trade fussy babies every few minutes.) The parents were apologizing for needing a helper, but I told them it was the best part of my whole week!
