My dogs irritate me
Sunday, May 30, 2021      4 comments

They are so jealous and fight for my attention. It agitates me and gives me a lot of stress. I need to separate them whenever I sit down to be on my computer. Hence, I do not have much computer time. 8 month puppy - Germain Shepherd / Lab m... Read more

Ran in the rain
Saturday, April 10, 2021      6 comments

Yesterday, I did my running class "homework" and decided to brave the weather and ran outside in the rain. The roads are gravel (dirt in some spots) so it was a muddy run. I used a different app than the running class and so my run time was a bi... Read more
Running class

I joined a running class and I feel like I am starting over with my running. I did a trial one mile run -- 14:14 -- feel like it is almost the same as my walk speed. But the instructor has chosen an easy app to get started with 30sec run: 2... Read more

Disconnected for a bit
Friday, February 19, 2021      13 comments

I have had limited internet access for a while and it seems weird to be back on line. Today, was the most I have been on line at one time for about 1 month. It can be a time waster or time to get stuff done. Not being online makes me reali... Read more
Koozy
Tuesday, January 26, 2021      3 comments

I found some leftover reflectix laying around and made a Koozy for my thermos that I take when I go on a hike. I did a hike in the woods and after about 1-1/2 hours my hot cocoa that I made was still on the hot side. So, it sort of worked, my th... Read more

I have been weighing myself on 2 different scales and this morning I stepped on one that I have not used since Dec 14, 2020 -- to my surprise I am at that weight this morning. This is encouraging because I was gaining. Time to refocus... Read more
