Healthy Mile
Monday, September 07, 2020      7 comments

I saw somewhere what the time for walking a mile and how healthy you are. Let's just say the healthy person my age walking a mile is like me running it (well way back in high school). Even to get to the faster end of my unhealthy time, I need ... Read more
Day 250
Sunday, September 06, 2020      5 comments

As of this morning's walk, I have done 250 days straight of 20 minutes of movement. Almost all of my days consist of walks. A few days have been shoveling snow or mowing lawn. I set out to do 100 days and kept on trucking. How has my bod... Read more

I realize I am stating my opinions and yours may differ. That is fine with me. I respect that. An acquaintance of mine on Facebook posted a picture and message of her and her ex co-parenting their son. I told her how proud I am of her an... Read more

For my birthday I received a gift certificate for a massage from both my kids. I would go in for one monthly if I could. Since I can't afford it, I go around my birthday. My kids know this about me. I was going to make an appointment for the... Read more
1st Day of School
Thursday, September 03, 2020      2 comments

Yesterday was my daughter's first day of school for the new year. She started her junior year. Her dad and I left the choice up to her if she wanted to do remote or hybrid learning. She choose hybrid being the remote was a bit too much. She ... Read more
Ye Ole Physical
Wednesday, September 02, 2020      6 comments

This morning was the day for the annual physical. "Check under the hood and kick the tires" as my uncle would say. Not exactly a fun day but necessary. My time with my provider went well. He is good about not lecturing me on my weight. My ... Read more
Living Life
Tuesday, September 01, 2020      2 comments

Sadly I have recently read of the death of 2 different spark people. I didn't get to know either one but their mark was left on many from what I have seen. A saying a read sometime in the recent past comes to mind. "You don't have one life, y... Read more

With painting my new front door, I have come to the realization that I was not destined to paint homes. I am fine with that. I can do the taping just fine. For some reason I have trouble painting in the lines. One more coat on my door and it w... Read more
Summer 5%
Saturday, August 29, 2020      6 comments

I did my first 5% challenge this summer. Today was the last day as far as weigh in. I must say I am a bit disappointed in myself. It was 8 weeks in which to help myself become healthier. I started out great and then not sure what happened. I... Read more
Dinosaurs, Pirates, and Knights, Oh My!

Yesterday I spent the day photographing and posting the rest of the toys for sale. I took Monday to clean the toys up. I had to reassemble "T-rex Mountain" and thank God the instruction manual was on-line for me. These toys are my son's old t... Read more
Garage is Done!!
Wednesday, August 26, 2020      6 comments

Finally, my garage is done and rearranged. Sadly this arrangement will only last until I get my snowmobiles sold. Hopefully that will be this weekend. Then I will do my final arrangement to make it easy to get my garbage/recycling cans out an... Read more
Safety 1st
Tuesday, August 25, 2020      3 comments

The sun isn't up as early in the mornings anymore. Since I prefer to get up and get things done, this means we are starting our walk in somewhat dark. It is dark enough for the street lights to still be on. I have "seen" enough people walking... Read more
New Route
Monday, August 24, 2020      5 comments

This weekend I discovered a new walking route for my GSD and myself. It is longer than the normal route being it is over a mile. My dog seemed to like the longer route. Changing things up seems to blow his mind however. So many new smells to... Read more
He's Not Beautiful
Saturday, August 22, 2020      8 comments

I am guessing my German Shepherd does not like being called beautiful. When we walk many people will comment on who striking he is. He is very good looking as a white shepherd. Not many people have ever seen one. I have in pictures until my ... Read more
Stop to Smell the Roses
Friday, August 21, 2020      4 comments

It has been a busy week for me. Not even sure where it went and what I have all done. I will work on refilling the dumpster once it gets emptied today. I need to mow lawn and hope the rain misses us so I can get it done. I really should do s... Read more
