Busy Thursday

Friday, April 08, 2011

Lots of exercise today. Woke up and saw some ice flows going down river so we wondered if the ice above the weir was breaking up and going over the falls. As it was morning and cold and frozen, we drove down, but once there and saw the trail was clear we decided to walk down further to the Art Gallery area and look for beaver. We didn't see any, but saw fresh cuts, dripping with sap. 40 minutes walking there. I had already done my 30 min elliptical and 45 min walk with weights DVD. Then it was off to Costco, catching a lot of good deals, toothpaste, deodorant, whey supplement and Mom got her precious coffee on sale, a good time before they jack the price up on it. I spent a lot of time just walking around and looking. Then it was off to my pool therapy where I worked hard, probably irritating all the others in the small pool with the waves and splashing. After an hour of that, I fast walked home for 45 minutes. I was beat. Got my Mom to straighten my arm, get it in the splint then laid down on the couch and slept for three hours. Felt great when I woke up in time to fix my supper then wash the dishes..
Hope you all have a good sleep and fantastic Friday!

    You are an absolute exercise dynamo!! Wow!! Nobody deserves good health more than you do, or has to work harder for it . . . And yet you've given ME a gym membership as a birthday goodie: thank you so much for your warm good wishes.

    It's so nice to have come to know you through Spark!!

    You are a dynamo! I don't think I would be able to keep up with you at all! I don't think even hip surgery will keep you down for long! Did you decide to keep this page after all? Not change your name? Well, whatever you do, I hope all will be fine with you and you are happy! Wish we had a Costco here! I may check out Sam's Club sometime in the near future. Take care. emoticon

    Well, Linda, wondered why I did not see your blog from yesterday before I headed to bed last night. BUSY gal....you didn't get to the computer till late obviously!

    Ice flows down the river, so neat....so encouraing. Too bad you didn't get some pictures of that! Something I would NEVER see here!

    Wonder where the beaver were, if you saw evidence of them....maybe they heard ya coming?! What a great walk that must have been, invigorating for sure!

    Good heavens you SHOULD have been BEAT!!! I am exhausted just reading of your exercise exploits. As I have said many times....you ARE A TIMEX!!!!

    WOW, slept for 3 hours!!! FABULOUS!
    Funny you mentioned sleeping well, the other day I read about MORE MELATONIN=better health. Well I had been taking 6 mg. and was not getting the same affect, so upped it to 9 mg. and cannot get over the difference. I have been sleeping a LOT better! Just amazing.
    The article said: Melatonin may be a sleepers best friend.

    Interesting how the earth changes through the seasons - I bet the ice flows going over the falls would be a sight to see!

    I heard on the news about big pieces of ice breaking up and causing damage along the top of the Mississippi River, and thinking it will cause flooding soon. I don't think I'd want to live very close to the mighty Mississippi. We have a Sam's Club here but no Costco. The other people in the pool should have gotten in line behind you! It would have probably been their best workout ever. You needed a good nap after all that!!
