It may officially be fall, but there was still a lot of grass to cut. I barely finished the lawn before it was getting dark. I did have enough light to find some the of green beans are still growing. I'm just stuck in front of a compu... Read more

Over the last couple of days, it's been warm, so I'm glad I didn't pack away my shorts for the season. I was surprised to find a zucchini in the garden, and it's not huge. ... Read more

Gosh it was humid today. I worked up a real lather mowing the lawn. The Bears and Cubs had the same amount of offense - 16. The Bears squeaked by, but they won. There's a vine growing in the garden, and I didn't plant it. Although t... Read more

The fitness center has a bunch of dumbbells that are covered in neoprene, and some of them have cracks and tears. Since the beat up ones are going to be thrown away, Diane offered to let us take what we wanted. I dug around and found a pair of... Read more

At 7:30 this morning, I would have preferred to roll over and go back to sleep. Instead I got up, had breakfast, and headed to the gym. It would be so easy to blow off my class and start making that a habit. I really like sleeping in, but I'v... Read more
