No you hadn't mentioned the hip replacement. I hope the second surgery date works out for you both. I don't think things will be that much better this week as far as the virus , but we can hope.

I hope there is more they can do to relieve some of this pain because so far I don't have much relief. I think I have to just work through the pain and get more movement in the joints that are aching. As the day goes by some of the pain is lessened, but by evening it is screaming at me again. I am not a happy camper and didn't see this as my future.

We are not doing anything for Thanksgiving except I will still make a turkey and stuffing and we will have a small meal here. My middle son will come and spend time with us in the morning. His wife is extra cautious and our youngest is high risk. If anything we will drop off some goodies so we can at least see him.

I'm sorry to hear that Val. I don't know much about that condition but it doesn't sound fun. I hope you feel better quickly. Besides medicine, what else do they suggest to help?

Yes, puppies aren't fun; they are adorable.....but not fun! I have to say the first 2 weeks were the hardest because the poor thing had tapeworms which caused diarrhea. Now that that has been corrected, we enjoy him a lot more.

We have an underground fence and he can be trained on that after he's 4 months old. In the meanwhile, he's relegated to inside the house.

Not sure if I told you this or not, however, my husband was scheduled for right hip replacement on 11/16. We got to the hospital and, while waiting to be checked in, were told the surgery was canceled due to the rise in covid numbers. No one bothered to call and tell us. Thankfully, his surgeon came into the lobby as Dean and I sat there in dismay and we calmly gave him a piece of our minds. We were so disappointed - really had the rug pulled out from underneath us. They re-scheduled for Friday, 11/27, day after Thanksgiving. He's in so much pain and we both just want this behind us. Craziness! I'm praying they actually take him this time.

Have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving! Be well and I hope you feel better before long!

Oh how adorable. The puppy stage is harder than I anticipated, but we do enjoy our so much.

As it turns out my shoulder wasn't frozen I have fibromyalgia. When I wake up in the mornings I have all I can do to lift my arms. I ache at all points that join to my body. As the day goes on and the medicine kicks in I get more movement. This is one of the strangest and most frustrating things that has happened to me. I knew I was feeling older than I should and everything seemed to ache, but this not being able to use my arms very well is horrible. Hopefully in time the medicine will work better.

Where are the puppy pictures? I have been laid up with a back back the result of a frozen shoulder and a very large dog. She doesnít jump into the car so I have to assist. My shoulder gave out and so did the back. I am feeling somewhat better, but this shoulder thing is taking way too long. I hope you guys are doing well.

How exciting and yes that is a lot of work, but once they can control their bladder it gets a lot easier. I think they are little like babies when they are real young and have little control. Skyler has been great with that for months now. I love having the puppy love that is for sure. Enjoy! I can't wait to see the little one.

My husband and I brought home a puppy yesterday afternoon. Henry is a Sheltie that is 2 1/2 months old. He's so adorable but I'm 60 and my husband is 66 and just one night in and we're tired! Lots to get used to. I will post pictures some time soon.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Good Morning Ladies: Yes, I'm adjusting to being back in the office. Ideally, I'd like to go in there 3 days a week and have 2 at home but I'm not sure that will happen - not until I'm exclusively doing all the billing. Right now, there's other paperwork for me to prepare and it's my responsibility to make sure it gets done. We'll see.

I got my flu shot yesterday and am feeling funky today. I'm glad it's Friday. Tomorrow my kids and grandkids are going to a local corn maze to have some fall fun. I'm very Blessed.

I'm glad to hear you're both doing well and I hope and pray the fires are contained shortly out in CA. That's wonderful that your brother continues to improve Val!

Be well and safe and happy emoticon

Hello Sunny and Pat,
Yes our colors are starting to really Pop. I was worried that they wouldn't be nice since we were also lacking rain here, but they look pretty good. It is so nice to be able to look out the windows throughout the day and not be stuck in an office with no windows. Our rates are going back up so I won't be returning for a while and probably will never be full time at the office again. That I can live with.

My brother continues to improve - I am so thankful for that. Thank you for asking.

I too am a stress eater and lately it hasn't been the best, but I am making sure to get more vegetables and especially those good for inflammation. I see the doctor tomorrow and hope to get so answers on all the joint pain I have been experiencing. I still do what I can to get out and walk . I love walking. I too have a weighted hula hoop but I haven't used in quite a while - they are fun.

Have a good October ladies.

Val

Oh, Val, I am glad to hear about your brother, but it's still not 100%. It's hard to believe how it affects lungs. Please, update how he is!!!

Pat, thank you so much for your thoughts and keeping me in your prayers. It was not too close (roughly 16-20 miles the closest one) but what a horrible year fro California with these fires. The camping spot where we went in August was evacuated, and the winery where we did tasting was destroyed. It's difficult to comprehend how the fires affected so many. The infamous Santa Ana winds are yet to come. I've been living in this house for 13 years, and the fires came yards away twice already. I am not looking forward to the winds in October-December.

I am starting to feel that October is sprinting already. I will have to improvise my exercising with the swimming season coming to an end and the gyms are not open. It will be back to walking and hiking, probably. I bought a weighted hula hoop 3.9 lbs, and I couldnít even do 2 rotations. I exchanged it for 2.6 lb hula hoop, and itís much better. I am a bit bruised from it at my waist but it will get better and I sure enjoy it. I am really serious to make my efforts work. However, last week was hard keeping my hands away from the cookie jar (and I did not keep my hands away). It mustíve been emotional eating. I feel I am back on track this week, for 2 days at least.

Pat, how is your work in the office now? Did you get adjusted? I hope you feel safe there!

Val, it must be so beautiful where you are with autumn colors! I miss it.

Keep safe!

Anna

Hello team,

Pat, so good to see you adjusting well to your "back to office" schedule now.
Val, I agree, it's not so bad returning. I worried too, but it feels safe being back. I am also doing part from home. And we get tested once every 2 weeks. It feels safer knowing we are all "negative."
Val, how is your brother doing? I hope he is much better!

Keep safe!
Anna

There are many things I miss about not working from home but 6 months of only seeing my husband was really starting to wear me down mentally and emotionally. I am basically an introvert but I need to be around others every-so-often to recharge my battery. It's nice to have a variety of people around me. It's awesome that you have a balance of home/office! That's my ultimate goal.

Stay safe and healthy. Pat

@RAINBOWFALLS I know what you mean! And, yes, thank God for the cooler temps.

I went to a family function in New York 3 weekends ago, last weekend my kids/grandkids went to the beach (Thurs thru Sunday) and this weekend my husband and I were camping. I'm exhausted and can now get back to ME and to a somewhat regular schedule.

Be well all, Pat

I hope all is well with you. Our weather is much cooler and that makes it nice for walking. At the moment I am trying to get back to more of that. My middle son turned 40 and that makes me very close to old age. True be known I have felt like old age took me over. Time to get younger again. emoticon

I received good news from my brother and from work. My brother was given a new medicine that has helped him to feel much better. I hope he continues to improve.

As far as work, we had a new Office Schedule come out and a mention of wanted to get back to normal by December of all goes well. I was worried that meant they would want me back in the office. Well it seems they see how much happier I am at home so they are still allowing me 5 days at home only going in when I need to. The IT partner says that he is going to fight for me to stay that way too. He told them all it took was windows!

I hope everyone has a relaxing, fun safe labor day weekend. We are having kids, spouses, grandkids over tomorrow, and then, on Monday, I'm bringing all my office equipment and 'stuff' back to the office.

It seems like just yesterday I dragged my computer/monitors and equipment home and felt numb not knowing how this virus might wreak havoc or how my loved ones would fair and if I'd lose my job as so many did. I am very Blessed as we have all remained healthy and stable financially.

I wish you all peace, love, security and happiness emoticon

We had the most wonderful weather at the end of August. Today we are getting rain which is needed so no complaints here. I heard from my brother who lives in Mexico and he has the virus. He is having issues with respiratory and is at times using oxygen. I sure hope he gets better. It has been too many years since I have seen him and this makes me sad.

We were supposed to go camping this weekend but canceled. Between the heat/humidity (which my husband doesn't do well with) and the rain from Laura it's better to stay home.

My prayers go out to all that are being affected by Hurrican Laura. It sounds very ugly.

Stay well and safe everyone!

It amazes me every year how much burns out west. Sunny I hope that situation is improving for you. I see so much more camping happening this year. I think that people spending more time together on activities like that is the best thing that has come out of the year 2020.

@SUNNY2010 What do you teach? Best of luck with the return to school. California has been in my thoughts and prayers so much lately. I can't imagine how frightening the wild fires are.

I've been fairly busy over the past week. Yesterday was my twin grandsons 3rd birthday and I forgot to call them! I felt horrible but they were busy yesterday and I'll stop by today to see them. Their birthday party is this Saturday so gifts and cards then.

Have a great day.

Hello Val and Pat,

Good luck on the medical tests results! Pat, good to hear about yours.

With the original vacation plans cancelled, we were still able to get away to do some camping and traveling in Northern California for almost 3 weeks. Sadly, after our return this whole area is evacuated due to fires. We came home just on time, but I cannot stop thinking of the beautiful redwoods area and mostly people with such devastating fires.

Pat, I hear you about returning to the office. I am starting my teaching on Monday. Most of the university is online, but a few classes are 50% on site - that's me. I worry and yet I am so excited. I actually wish it was 100% onsite. We prepared the studios so well, that everyone will be 6ft apart or more. I hope everyone will remain safe. But as usual before school starts I have a little bit of typical anxiety of meeting new students and getting semester rolling.

I hope you are doing well. I agree, it's hard to believe that summer is almost over.

Anna

I've made the decision to return to the office to work as of September 8th. Honestly, I'm looking forward to it. I've felt too isolated and the only other person I see on a regular basis is my husband and we are really getting on each other's nerves emoticon

Dang you have been through quite a lot of poking and prodding. I hate the prep for a colonoscopy and will put my next test off as long as I can. emoticon

We have also gotten a few little showers, but need a good day of rain. Hopefully, we will get some from the storm coming up the coast.

It is hard to believe that we are fast approaching the end of summer. I just read an article about Vietnam having a new much more aggressive strain of Covid hitting them. I sure hope that strain stays away from the US - we are having enough issues getting the first one under control.

All test results have been great! I had a number of routine medical appointments scheduled throughout the months of March, April, and May that had to be rescheduled and a good portion of them were in July. Eye exam 2 weeks ago, mammogram 1 week ago and colonoscopy this week. Dentist next week! emoticon I'll be done with getting poked and prodded for a long time although I do have to make my 3-year pap test. Why not, right? Every other part of my body has been invaded emoticon

You'll be in my prayers with your tests @RAINBOWFALLS . Nerve-wracking, I'm sure. Thank God you and your docs are on top of things. We have to be proactive and our own best advocates, don't we??

Getting some rain but we need more serious rainfall. Fingers crossed and prayers up to God for real rain!!

I hope your results turned out well. I have been going through an every 6 month mammo and ultrasound because of some shadow they have been watching. The good news for us is that they seem to catch these things earlier and can take care of it before it is too late. The last 6 month I had said I could wait a year, but they still wanted one more ultra sound at the same time as the mammo.

I had a mammogram done 2 days ago and the hospital still hasn't uploaded my test results to the hospital website. I'm getting nervous. The results are usually uploaded the day after the test - I'm trying to calm myself by telling myself the entire medical profession is a tad crazy busy, at the moment, and they just haven't had a chance to post them. sometimes, when the test results aren't favorable, they take longer uploading them. emoticon

Calm down, Pat; calm down!

I'm going to put my crazy away for the day and go to bed.

I hope you are all well and keeping cool!! Pat

I did happen to hear NY state added 10 more states banned from coming here without a 2 week quarantine. Pretty soon we will be an island like the darn city. My post today on FB is "Even if we disagree about everything, we can still be kind to each other. I wish more people would practice this.

Think happy thoughts!

@RAINBOWFALLS I know, Val. I avoid watching the news at all costs because it's horrible. I've stayed away from anything and every thing on FB that will spark a political debate (practically everything).

I'm happier not watching the news and just going a long doing what I'm doing. I'm not sold on how useful the masks are but if that's what I need to wear to run in and out of a store, I'll do it.

I hadn't heard much about the covid test and how it was performed. I stay away from a lot of news about it. However, when someone was talking about what their daughter was going through last week I starting wondering. I did see out governor have the test done before a press conference and it didn't look like they went to ar up the nose. I will be curios to hear how bad it really is. Let me know.

We did have people travel through the 4th of July week to states that NY now restricts from coming into our state. It certainly is not getting better at this stage and I wish it would. The people and all their views on this is almost humorous. I just don't get all the hype about weather to wear a mask or not, but then again I'm apolitical and so this may be why. NY has always seemed to have tougher laws and maybe I'm just use to it.

It's hot here, too, Val! We were camping late Thursday, Friday, Saturday and returned home approx. 1/2 hour ago. I'm glad. It was nice but SO hot and today will be over 100. We broke camp at 7:30 this morning to bet the heat the day will bring.

On Tuesday, July 28 I go for my colonoscopy (YAY!!). I don't mind the procedure as much as all the fuss with the prep. The Saturday before I have to go for a COVID test because they won't do the procedure until they know you're negative. I'm dreading that MORE>

Well the heat is making an unwelcome come back for at least the next week. I hate having to live in air conditioning, but at least I can breath well with it verses the humidity that is here.

I too would like a whirlpool to help with the aches and pains of growing old.

Have a great weekend and enjoy your camping trip. emoticon

I would LOVE to have a hot tub or a whirlpool system of some sort. My husband refuses. He doesn't realize how much it would help the both of us. Que Sera.

Beautiful day here. We are going camping later this week and I'm praying for a shady site as the temps will be near 100 as the weekend approaches.

I took a very long walk yesterday and did a lot of tending to flower beds. Sore today emoticon

Be well, be safe, be happy emoticon

I loved doing water aerobics after my back surgery for rehabilitation. The water workouts take so much pressure off your joints. I wish I had a pool to do those types of exercises again. I have been trying to get in morning walks with Skyler on the days she doesn't go to daycare. Since I work at home it makes that easier to fit in. I also have to take it easy because of knee and hip issues. It is hard to even take care of some of those issues since there are no physical therapists open either. It is a whole new world.

I see the heat is throughout the whole country. Here, in SoCal, I don't think we will see rain till the second half of October. That's how usually is. Humidity is only 11-13%. We are soaking in the pool every evening. I bought aquatic ankle weights and dumbbells, and have had fun with it for the last week. I hope to see results. But not being able to go to the gym (and I won't be ready to do it any time soon because of the pandemic), and it's too hot to walk, I am trying to be creative. It's been helping me to keep up with the Summer Biggest Looser Challenge.
I hope you have a good start of the week!

During spring I didnít think it would ever stop and now we are in need of a good soaking. This morning I watered the flowers and this afternoon they are bone dry again. Our temperatures are above normal and we are not getting any relief.

We didnít do anything on the 4th except yard work too. There is plenty more to do, but I need cooler temperatures first. I hope you are both having a nice week.

My husband and I didn't do anything on July 4th other than enjoy the fireworks from our back deck. It was very hot and I did some gardening throughout the day with lots of breaks in between. Sunday the 5th, my oldest daughter hosted a BBQ at her house. We all enjoyed getting together with family and watching the grandkids enjoy/play with each other. I hope @RAINBOWFALLS and @SUNNY2010 enjoyed your holiday as well.

We had a magnificent thunder/lightning storm yesterday in the early evening. 2 1/4" of rain! That was much needed. We went weeks without a drop here in our area. It was painful walking barefoot on our grass because it was so dry and spiky emoticon

I'm praying more rain will come.

Be well everyone.

Bella, thank you for the anniversary wishes!
I hear you about the regulations under COVID. I know companies need to cover themselves, but sometimes I feel that I am ready to hit the pillow from frustrations how we will operate in the Fall semester. I absolutely agree that safety is first but some regulations are so far from making any sense (like for example we can use elevator only 1 way).

Let's enjoy the holiday spirit!

Hot as blazes here today. I'm preparing salads for a BBQ at my oldest daughter's house tomorrow. I was asked to make my macaroni n' cheese dish everyone loves but I'm not turning on my oven! I'm going with a nice cold macaroni salad. I'm sure everyone will like it.

Not much else going on. I was up yesterday when the sun came up to do some gardening to avoid the 94-degree temps we reached yesterday. I'm very grateful for central air conditioning!

We've been told there are spikes in PA. The amish are making things worse and I'm very soured on them at this point. I won't shop at their stores/stands any longer. They just don't care even though the virus has killed a lot of their elders.

Stay cool Classmates! Pat/Bellamemaw

I am so thankful that our company has not wanted everyone back at this office. If we do go in we have to take our temperatures, fill out a health and travel form. If we are to travel we are to let HR know before we go and depending will need to self quarantine. We have been closed this week, since we usually are less busy this time of year. However, with the tax deadline moved out three months that just made tax season go all summer. Between filing three months later and then for those that extend their deadline this year will only be three months later. I will be quite busy once we return as will everyone else. One office staff went to NC for the week so she has to self quarantine and is not set up to work from home. It would take a lot of work since phone lines and fax lines are required for her job.

I too am very thankful for my continued employment and I believe I will at least get to work part time at home once this is all over. I will find it very hard to go back to the office. Some people miss other people - I donít very much.

@SUNNY2010 Happy belated Anniversary; sounds like a beautiful camping trip.

My boss was hinting around that I return to the office as of today since we moved into the Green phase this past Friday. I refused. The rest of the teleworkers are slated to go back 7/31 and I was really annoyed that he would want me to go back a month earlier. I refused and I'm not sure that went over well but I don't care. The company also sent out a COVID policy that states while you're at work you will be required to wear a mask. There is NO WAY I can work 8 hours straight with a mask on. I'm claustrophobic and that's not going to fly. Apparently, the majority of employees checked off the box "I cannot....for religious or personal reasons" and the President of the company sent a scathing email to everyone about their lack of consideration.. The company, however, has done very little to ensure the welfare of people still physically working at the plant and the offices outside of the plant. Their care of us has been to cover their rear ends in case someone gets sick and tries to sue them. Very disappointing.

I am so very grateful to have had a full-time paycheck throughout all of this and to be able to work from the safety of my home and that's what I have to stay focused on.

Enough emoting emoticon Have a beautiful day! Pat

Val, thank you for your sweet words!

That is very wise that NYC and the rest of the state is treated differently in respect to the reopening phases. And you are probably very right that NYC should be its own state.

Happy anniversary to you and you husband. What a great milestone and I love the fact you were able to find an alternative for your celebration.

NY was very high, but that was due to the city not the area where I live thankfully. NYC should be its own state as far as I am concerned. I was just thankful that our governor took into a count the counties rates when it comes to reopening in the phases. We are headed to phase 4, but the city was only at phase 1. I believe they may be close to phase 2 now. Our state has recently locked down travel into it from the states that are currently rising. I hope CA can get their numbers back in control and I sure hope NYC doesnít move to fast and end up worse off.

Hello!

Bella, it's an interesting fact you shared about the community and the spike in numbers. I am trying to figure out why California has the numbers steadily growing. I am sure it's a similar reason as in Texas and Florida that have the numbers spiking too.

Val, it must've been a frightening experience for everybody around you for such high numbers and NY being a hot spot for quite some time. It seems that most (not all of course) are diligently wearing masks in CA, but the numbers are spiking.

We just returned back from a camping trip. Most state parks don't allow camping yet during pandemic, but private camps are open. What a joy it was to have long walks to the beach with my daughter and our 2 dogs a few times a day (and helped me with the cardio minutes). My husband prefers riding a bike, so we all were happy campers. It was nice to celebrate there Father's day and also our 25th wedding anniversary. It was very important for us to be on the ocean since we got married on the yacht. We had a Caribbean cruise planned out. But it was cancelled due to pandemic. So camping close to the beach was a nice alternative too (may be even better).

Stay safe!

Anna

Yes time does fly and now that my granddaughter drives and works she just doesn't need us like she use to. It is nice seeing her grow up, but she still has some traits that I worry about. We are heading to phase 4 which I believe will lighten things up even more I just hope our numbers stay down. some of those southern states are in for a world or hurt at the rate they are going. I hope this all gets in our past sooner rather than later.
Great job with biking. I should pull mine back out and get riding. Now with Skyler in my life though I feel guilty if I don't take her for a walk so that is what I normally do.

You stay safe too.

Val - so glad to hear you got out and went to an actual 'establishment' !! I'm looking forward to going out to dinner with friends and enjoying a beer or a glass of wine with them. Our county goes green June 26th - still have to wear masks but going green will literally open many doors!

I finally got a hitch for my car. My husband put it on for me today so off I went to the trail with my bike. I walk all the time but BOY OH BOY....my bicycling muscles got a workout today! My thighs will be mad at me tomorrow, I'm sure. emoticon

Going to a park by my son/daughter in law's house to watch my 3 yo granddaughter ride her new bike. Geez, I feel like she was just born. Time goes too fast.

Be well and happy everyone, Bella

We went out to a local brewery and met my sister-in-law last night. Masks are required while not seated and all tables are 6 feet or more apart. I was so happy to get out for a couple of hours. The one downfall of working at home is you don't get out much. So far NY has been holding up with the openings, but I am afraid that might change once the city gets moving through the phases. They just started phase one recently. We have made it to phase 3 in our county.

Stay safe.

Here in PA, the cases have spiked thanks to the Amish community. They've viewed the virus as a joke from the beginning and haven't adhered to ANY of the rules the rest of us have to abide by. They are making and selling masks but won't wear them. Very frustrating.

I had a friend come to my house today and cut my hair. I never thought having my hair trimmed and thinned out would be so wonderful! I'm so grateful she was comfortable enough to come over.

I hope you are all well. Keep on keepin' on emoticon

I think there will be a lot of camping this summer as many places can't take the amount of people that they normally did. My favorite get away place in Maine I wouldn't even be able to go to without a negative covid test. I sure hope this clears up sooner rather than later, but it isn't looking good with the new spikes in cases in some of the states.

I've always had big dogs. Now, at the age of 60, I realize the next dog has to be more on the smaller size (1 dog was a mastiff and another had mastiff in her). Although, even a smaller dog can jerk you the wrong way. Skylar is still a puppy and, I'm sure, rammy (as they say here in PA dutch country).

We are heading out to go camping (glamping) shortly and I'm really looking forward to it.

The last two days it has been horribly hot and humid. We donít have central air, but we do have a small house so window air conditioners and a big fan keeps it cool enough. I am not sure how, but I wrenched my neck and upper back. I have been living with a heating pad which is sort of funny with the horrible heat we are having. I think Skyler may have yanked me one too many times. She is a strong dog. We did get out for a walk yesterday before the heat turned up. I was thankful for that.

I love painting rocks. I actually find peace in it and yet I canít draw a straight line to save my life so it doesnít make much sense. I always say to my husband ďit is just a rockĒ if you donít like it start again. Rocks are very cheap.

@SUNNY2010 No, I'm not an artist. Maybe someday I'll be better at it. For now, however, I find it very relaxing. I'm learning something new and I want to take on some new, creative things over my upcoming years. That's one of the things quarantine has taught me. Take the time to do something new.

How nice you got to visit with friends. I'm so grateful for the family/friend interaction we've been getting back into.

I didn't sleep well last night. I think I might have had 2 hours of sleep total? Ugh. Makes for a rough day and I'm heading off to bed shortly.

@RAINBOWFALLS I hope your back is okay. You have so many beautiful flower beds, I can only imagine how much work is involved in maintaining them all.

Good night ladies emoticon

Happy Monday!

I had our get-together with friends yesterday. It was our 1st since quarantine. The numbers in SoCal are growing but we've all been so good and missed our interaction.

Bella: abstract painting?! How wonderful! Is it something new you are conquering or are you an artist?

Have a good week!

I do love my alone days too. I did get some weeding done yesterday, and listened to my body when it said enough. That is some back breaking work. Today I hope to take a walk and hide some of my painted rocks. I have quite the stash of them. Yesterdayís weather was perfect with some sun and a nice breeze. I slept quite well after all the fresh air.

Have a wonderful day ladies.

DH is going on a motorcycle ride with friends so I have a day to myself (I love him....but you know where I'm coming from) emoticon

Going for a walk on the trail and then trying my hand at some abstract painting I've been putting off for way too long.

We had a nice time with the grandkids yesterday. They all wanted to go outside and play...so we did. We were out for maybe 20 minutes when my 8 yr old g-daughter announced it was too hot so we all went inside. YAY! The visit was nice. It recharges my soul when I get to see my family.

Off to Wally World (Walmart) shortly for some odds and ends.

Have a beautiful day emoticon

Bella, how fun to babysit 4 grandkids. I bet they keep you busy, and that counts for some exercise.

Last night, my daughter's wish to celebrate the end of her 10th grade with pizza ended up for me with 2 slices. I am not even a pizza eater, but this particular chicken BBQ with such delicious (surprisingly) crust was gourmet and irresistible, and then ice cream. I have to be extra good today in food and exercise to combat last night's choices. We have June gloom today, and it's perfect for a long walk.

Have a super Saturday!


Anna

Very foggy morning here. Thank goodness it's Saturday. DH and I are babysitting 4 grandkids this morning, other than that nothing else planned. We are going camping later this week and I'm praying the weather is nice!

Have a nice day everyone.

Our Friday is starting cloudy with some rain in the forecast, but after Saturday morning things look to be good for the weekend. I hope you both have a nice weekend. emoticon

Sunny that is the way to do it and I am jumping on your bandwagon. Yes, those 10 years do make a difference.

Val, as I remember you, you are always busy! I agree with Bellamemaw, this must count for something.

Bella, good to know which one is your team for the Challenge that starts tomorrow. I also just checked out the 5K challenge (thank you so much for the link to the Challenge Central), when I am ready to introduce jogging to my walking, I will definitely join. I am not there yet. It will take me awhile to battle 4 years of not exercising and gaining weight on a steep incline emoticon .

Baby steps for me, but with not a high pace I've walked daily 20-50 minutes, for 9 days. Starting in 2010 was easier, I was 10 years younger. But I am enjoying my baby steps for now.

@RAINBOWFALLS emoticon You garden a lot! That has to count for something.

@SUNNY2010 I am on the Invincible Indigos. I love them because they are so laid back but not to the point of being lax. We all know what's expected of us and we report as needed and we usually do well as far as placing goes each week.

The 5K challenge is one of the many located here - you start/join whenever you want

You ladies are doing wonderful. Now to get my (caboose) in movement regularly. I find working at home that I am sitting way too much.
