Late riser day

Friday, July 27, 2012

In Sweden today is called "sjusovardagen" - translated something like lateriser day. In old days one believed that if you overslept this day you were going to be sleepy and late for the coming year.. and if it rains today it will rain seven weeks ahead.

It started sunny but turned cloudy, but no rain so far. I was up and about more early than usual - I think being such a nice neighbour yesterday gave me energy - although I was really beat coming home because we drove four hour on a hot day and my AC is nt orking properly.

Have been in the woods with doggy for almost an hour, tried to find a new tour to walk but it did not work that well, ended up in a lot of scrubs and pile of rocks - dauhter picked twelve ticks from doggy when we came home... I have put "front line" on him so they donĀ“t bite but he drops them in beds and furniture and they bite us...

I whine aobut my daughter learning so much faster than me to do tricks with the hula hoops - but in reality it is probably because she puts in many more hours. I do at best 30 minutes a day, she probably does one or two hours if I put all the time together.

    ugh to the ticks - wash carefully after handling them, because borrelia can be on the outside (DH had borrelia a few years ago and it is no fun at all). we actually had a terrific summer day again yesterday, after clouding slightly in the a.m. - the fjord warmed up to about 21C! sounds like you still had an interesting tour of the woods with DD and doggie - plus any time with DD and doggie is well spent:-) kids still have more energy than we do, and maybe an easier time learning - i think it's terrific that you can do that hooping at all! couldn't even imagine doing it...

    My neighbor moved here from New York City and she came down with Lyme Disease (not LIME so don't worry team)! The doctor's told her it came from a tick bite. She had so many symptoms but after they finally made the diagnosis, she is seeming to feel better. Please be careful with the ticks. Maybe they don't carry the disease there.
    I admire your hula hoop work out. This spare tire of mine seems to throw me off. One day it will be gone and I will let you know if the hoop works better, lol!

    Boy, all these posters need to give hooping another try! It is fun; at any age but you are exactly right--the youngsters have more time and energy to invest. Youth doesn't hurt either! Enjoy your lateriser day!

    I remember hula hoops, never thought of doing it now. Must be good for the abs?

    I hate, hate, hate ticks. We give our dogs a prescription medication once a month for ticks, fleas and heartworm. Seems to work pretty well.

    Hula hoops...A blast from the past! never mastered the skill, wouldn't even try now, my balance is so way off. Several Fridays ago there was a hula hoop contest at the Town Clambake by the lake. A few people had mastered the ability to rotate what seemed like a dozen or more hoops at one time, and keep them spinning. the winner seemed to keep them spinning forever!! It was fun to watch! emoticon

    Hula hoops I was never able to do that, You go girl!
    My son and I share time together by training for our first 5k, this fall.
    I agree spending the time with our kids is important and showing them how to be healthy is a greast thing! HAve a great weekend.
    Hope it does not rain there it is suppose to here!
