it's 28 feels like 23 with a high of 50 for today looks like Winter has returned. Fit quote for today: Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't.--Jerry Rice Motivational quote for today: Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life.--Yoko Ono Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 16,413 steps. With the exception of tomorrow I'll get into the gym in the morning. Tomorrow is Chicken and Noodle day at a local restaurant but will hope that the workout is modifiable for after dinner. As of Sunday morning I don't have my new workouts yet but will check tomorrow morning before work.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

One more week, and I can become obnoxious again !!!! WOOHOO !!!!!

Yesterday ended up a good day .. After my emotional morning; and hubby actually being sweet about my feelings, I finished the day with a bubble bath .. It's been like FOREVER since I had one of those !!!! with my eucaliptus bubble bath .. ahhhhhhh !!!! Wash those bad feelings and aches and pains away !!!! :)

Today I have my show at my friends flyball tournament !!! I'm excited !!! I didn't sleep at all .. definately since midnight, but I think I'm going on adrenline today .. I can sleep later .. and I can always leave if I get tired, but "doubt it" .. lol .. it is an active and LOUD tournament !!! the excitement of all the dogs .. I think I'll be in heaven !!!! :) and if it gets to be too much, I can always just step outside (but don't think that's going to happen .. lol)

This coming week I have a casual happy busy week .. Wednesday night dinner with my friends ... Lobster dinner .. YUMMMMMM !!!!! Thursday ... chair yoga, and then Friday meeting my friend for lunch, and then by Saturday I should have my data back, and I can finish the stupid install of my printer, without the stress of using up hubby's data .. YAY !!!! (the pressure won't be there, and I will walk away when I get frustrated .. with hubby's phone, I was pressured, because I don't have that all the time; and was stressed because I was using up his data .. )

Anyway .. I am looking SOOOO forward to this coming week and leaving this last week behind .. lol ..it wasn't a BAD week, just a trying one !!! :) and everyone has them !!

Okay -- gotta finish getting myself put together .. so talk later !!!! :)

Wish me luck that I have a fun day !!!! :) ....

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday went into the dumper .. between my havoc in the afternoon with my playtoys, and not wanting to use any more of hubbys data then I have to; and everything being "on line" .. and and and .. and then our golf game was a disaster .. you'd have thunk that I never played the Wii golf in my life .. *sigh* ...

My belly was in such flip flops by the time I crawled into bed, and I wrote it off as a bad day .. *sigh*

Today is a new day !!! I have busy work planned around the house, and hubby is running some errands .. my belly feels better, and today WILL be a better day .. :) I did alittle research with my phone behaving afterward; and made notes .. I "think" I know what happened with my printer, but I'm not going to worry about it until after the 5th .. my cutter still works with the cable, and the computer .. I can get the basic stock cuttings if I want to play .. and I'm logged in for 7 days .. (6 now .. lol) and the printer works as a printer (I think unless I messed that up too .. lol)

I have busy work planned, and tomorrow I may not be around; as I am meeting my friend at the flyball tournament to get practice with my camera and fast shots .. :) and it's super early .. :) I'll do my blog and posting later .. :)

Have a great day .. I'm going to !!!! I BETTER ... lol ..

Today's workout plan is Chest and Chest/Triceps Circuit tracked first on my body space app then on the gym app after. I have 2 more days today and tomorrow before my regular vitamins get here when the post office carrier brings the mail. Decided this morning to put my Versa on the charge at 66% just because it might get under 50% later today and I won't have time to charge it until tomorrow afternoon.

It's 63 but started out in the 30's this morning so warmed up nicely. Fit quote for today: The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!--Marvin Phillips Motivational quote for today: What comes easy won't last, what lasts won't come easy. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 14,777 steps. Got in a great Back/Biceps and 20 min row this evening. Ordered my regular vitamins and a different pre-workout from 1st Phorm and should hopefully have it by weeks end since it's coming from St. Louis, Mo. Decided that instead of depending on my trainer to get it for me I'd order myself and have it sent to my house. Tomorrow's workout plan is Legs and 20 min on stair master or other cardio.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Going slower and slower here .. (maxed out my data and it reboots April 5th .. *sigh*) I believe I won't run into this problem for awhile again .. I'm going to get myself a hard cable for my cutter .. instead of using wifi .. (which is my data .. *sigh* )

But even with my mood being lower than normal; I had a wonderful day .. pretty low key, and working on getting past my Sunday with mom, and my lack of data speed *sigh* .. (dial up would be quicker right now .. lol)

I had a great day .. (story in my blog) ... and finished my off mood .. :) I'm working toward Happy again ... lol ..

Today I'm meeting hubby downtown for our lunch at the casino .. he's getting the ol'farts points and free money now ... I have a couple of errands to make on the way home.

Hubby bought me an IfitAct yesterday .. and the only way you find out how many steps you took, is to download the information .. there is no screen .. I'm looking at it as a tool .. the band is very comfortable, and I'm going to see "what my results are after a "normal" day" .. and work from there .. without seeing the results as I go, I'm not pushing myself out of my normal activity and work from there .. :) .. so that's my new adventure now .. :) I can see what my "normal" day looks like and work from there .. I can do it .. :)

So .. that's my day .. I hope you have a good one .. I'm definately going to try ...but sunshine and blue skies can definately help !!! :)

Fit quote for today: If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready.--Will Smith Motivational quote for today: With belief and action all things are possible. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 16,714 steps.

Bought some awesome dried fruit it's called Crispy Fruit all apple can't describe the taste but they are Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free and no sugar added. For a 0.35oz bag it's just 35 calories and under 10grams of carbs and sugar.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Mom was in an off mood yesterday .. She had a busy week, and well -- takes her a few days to reboot .. but she was way off .. so hoping she'll get herself together ..

She said she would call the "senior taxi" for Wednesday .. so I don't have to worry about getting up early for that ..

It was a weird day .. but hoping today will be a better one ..

Val .. that's a beautiful verse ... thank you !

Hope it's a good one for you !!!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a wonderful wonderful day !!!! from breakfast with Julie, to the park and fresh air, and sunshine and talking to the animals... to running errands, to going shopping, to winning at golf .. to sleeping like the dead .. PERFECT day !!!! and I'm savoring it .. :)

The park was busy with people and dogs, so the critters were pretty quiet .. but I got a few good photos ..

My friend invited me to practice taking pictures at the flyball tournament she's in next Saturday .. I told hubby and he's fine with it .. :) (so he didn't plan anything) .. I'm excited ..

I'm excited that the stamp show is coming back, and I've picked out a wishlist of classes, and I can go on Friday ... (less crowded) .. and just looking forward to it .. WOOHOO !!!

Hubby sent me his agenda for his vacation in May .. May 5th - May 14th .. I'll be a bachlorette .. WOOHOO again !!!!!!

so life is absolutely wonderful !!!! and I really don't think could get much better .. I'm learning how to be retired, and so far am handling it with flying colors .. lol ..

Have a great day !!!! I'm going to !!!!!

Good afternoon to my friends !!!!! :)

Another great day yesterday !!!!

Went to the park; and got more pictures ... There was a pair of ducks there that swam right up to the pier .. today I bring my short lens, and nope .. they weren't as active ..

Actually today they were pretty quiet all over .. normally I go and there's bird noises all over, but by the time I got there today; they were pretty quiet .. the trees were quiet, and the pond was relatively quiet .. :)

but I got some pictures .. :)

My breakfast with my friend was AWESOME !!! We both had the 2 eggs, hashbrowns, I had sausage, she had bacon, and sourdough toast .. and coffee ..All of a sudden we looked at the clock, and it was 1 1/2 hours later .. lol ..

I gave her a card, with a picture of the quilt in it .. She looked at the picture and was puzzled (it wasn't the best picture), but I told her that the last quilt that I finished was hers .. and it was in the truck .. she was beside herself ..

Next week Saturday she has a flyball tournament (dog games), and offered for me to come and practice my camera .. so I told hubby that I have something going on next Saturday .. it's an all day event, so I can go anytime ... I'm excited about that .. practice practice practice .. :)

After I left the park I ran some errands .. I went on a mission to find those grips for pencils .. i think that will make them thick enough to use in the new attachment to my cutter ..

I got home around 1:30, and hubby just got home as well .. so it will be a quiet afternoon .. :)





Today's samples .. :) ..

Hope everyone has a great day !!! I'm going to !!!! :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Just for the record .. CHAIR YOGA IS NOT EASY !!!! lol lol lol

I came home feeling like a mack truck rolled over me, and it only got worse throughout the afternoon .. so much for my ego looking around .... thinking "these are elderly ladies.. if they can do it, I'm SURE I can" .. Ego's are NOT a good thing at times .. lol lol .. and well -- I have some "self crow eating" practice to do this week ..lol lol .. (whole story in my blog .. (bring your coffee .. it's a long one today... lol) )

Thankfully this morning the rigormortis has not held on .. and I feel actually pretty good again .. but yesterday I think I just hit my brick wall .. between getting up early; and being cold, damp and dreary; just caught up with me with all my energy from the last few days .. but today the sun is back out .. and I got my adapter for my new cutting machine .. and anxious to try it, hubby is in the Dells (he went a different direction yesterday ... lol) so I have the day to myself .. :)

I'm excited because they said we MIGHT be able to see a touch of the aurora borelous (sp?) tonight .. and living out in the country I've seen the tips before .. I'm hoping to see them tonight again !!! I wonder if a camera could pick them up ?? We shall see .. :)

So -- with the sunshine out, and the skies blue, and laundry calling me, and and and .. I don't know what I'll get into .. but you know whatever it is .. It's got to be fun (even laundry I guess .. lol) options are endless ..

Uly's birthday party was alot of fun, and he had a ball .. I sooo thank Gramma Teddy and Hoots for running it .. for the way I felt when I got home, I don't know if I could have handled it .. lol lol .. His party is in my blog ... :)

So -- I'm happy that yesterday happened, put a POP in my ego, and gave me things to practice for next week .. I can do it I can do it I can do it !!! :) emoticon I WILL DO IT !!!!

Have a great day and talk later !!!!

Gooooooood morning to my friends !!!! :)

I'm pooped .. lol lol .. didn't take my normal ease getting up this morning, and well -- got up around 4 or 5 .. and then came downstairs and did my blog, and then off to Chair yoga.. :)

I did get to talk with a couple sheriffs officers .. they were "hiding" in the park entrance, and I decided .. I was running early, and thought I was ask them ..

I live in a subdivision court, and the main street through the subdivision; has 3 stop signs, and 25 miles an hour .. When we first moved in, this was a very young subdivision; and there were kids that ran in the road .. Now we have people that walk their dogs, and walk .. (me for one) and there are cars that fly down that road .. stop sign ?? oh that's just a suggestion .. I know that there are people that work with their dogs being reactive to cars while they walk on that road .. some with success and some still working .. I don't want their dogs to get hit, because of some idiot that flys down the road at at least 50 if not faster ..

Well -- the officers were very helpful and told me where to call to talk to someone, and they would transfer my information to the local Sargent to get someone to work the area ..

I went to class, and had fun, but ooooooo gotta start doing my PT exercises again .. my back was fighting with me .. 45 minutes out of the class, sitting tall, and on the edge of the chair .. I was wondering if I would make it .. lol .. but I did .. :) lol

Off to check on Uly and the gang .. it sounds like they are having fun .. lol lol ..

Hope everyone has a great day .. I think my afternoon is going to be a quiet one, just listening that the house stays standing with Uly's party .. lol ..

It's 54 feels like 50 but started out in the 40's and scattered rain showers this morning. Fit quote for today: Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.--Walter Elliot Motivational quote for today: Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter.--Dan Reeves Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 15,196 steps. Got in a great Chest Circuit and Chest/Triceps Circuit then did some abs and a bunch of stretches as I need to get back to stretching after my workouts. Gym rest day tomorrow but Friday's workout is 15 min on treadmill then Shoulders/Legs. Got the bumper and screen protector for my Versa today and it was so hard to get the band back on that don't think I'll change bands anytime soon. Had to have a guy at the nail salon who owns an apple watch to get the band back on.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Another great day under my belt !!! and looking forward to another good day ..

I think I saw my unicorns peeking around the corners .. :) It's been awhile, but I'm tired of fussing about what is wrong with me, and my problems, and working on what I CAN and WILL do !!!!

They're baaaaaaaacccckkkkkkk !!!!!!!!



Today .. will be my nail appointment and then take a little road trip to find a restaurant that I'm meeting a friend at in a few days ... I would rather "pre" find it, then stress myself out that day .. if I know where I'm going .. I will be able to totally enjoy myself with my friend on the real day !!! :)



I'm taking my camera along, because it's an interesting area ..and its been awhile since I've been there .. With the chance of rain, I'm thinking I'm not going to get to my park today .. I have to get home afterward, and prepare for Uly's birthday party tomorrow .. (they started last night .. lol)

Before you call the funny farm and have me completely signed off .. Unicorns are my "symbol" of energy .. (this is why they didn't make it to the ark .. they were too busy playing and having fun) ... When I exercise I get into a euphoria, that I enjoy ...and my phrase is "Unicorns are out and dancing around again" .. :) Well -- a friend of mine gave me Uly, last year on March 21, and well .. that just started a whole scenerio of imagination .. and Uly has grown to his first birthday.. coming up tomorrow .. and YES I DO have a very VIVID imagination .. I grew up in the era that imagination was required in order to "play" .. :)

Tomorrow morning is my first chair yoga class, and I'm excited about it !!! another reason for my unicorn visits .. :) There will be someone there that I know as well .. one of hubby's friends from Monday Wii bowling .. and just the sweetest lady .. you can't help but feel comfortable around her .. :) So I'm excited about that !!!!

So -- I'm hoping that everyone has a Wonderificus Wednesday !!!! and we'll talk later .. gotta get myself some breakfast before going .. it's going to be a long day; and have to save my appetite for 'za when I get home !!!! :)

Talk later!!! I'm going to have a good day .. how 'bout you ??? :)

I got a chance to play with my camera toy .. get fresh air, and sunshine !!!! :)







I have a funny feeling I'm going to be at this park quite a bit during the summer .. :) the paths, and areas are endless, and it connects to the Wisconsin Bugline ... so the walking can be forever ...

Hubby started working on his vacation .. looks like I'm going to be a bachlorette right now .. from May 5 to May 17th ... the choices are endless to get into trouble .. mwaaahaahaaahaaa



To look forward to just playing.... and playing .. and playing ..... :)

Oh yes.. I WILL miss him terribly ..


No .. for really I will .. :)

So -- that was my day yesterday .. and looking forward to another super day today .. getting fresh air and sunshine, really does do wonders for the soul . :)

It's 43 feels like 39 with a high of 64 for today. Fit quote for today: Energy and persistence conquer all things.--Benjamin Franklin Motivational quote for today: If you have the power to make someone happy, do it. The world needs more of that. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 16,603 steps. Got in a great Legs Circuit and 20 min treadmill walk yesterday. Today's workout plan is Back/Biceps and 20 min row followed by Legs and 20 min on stair master or other cardio machine. Back is feeling better but still going to use Bio-Freeze before my workout and maybe buy more Icy/Hot patches.

It's 57 now but started out in the lower 40's this morning. Fit quote for today: Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year.--Franklin P. Adams Motivational quote for today: Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 14,262 steps. Got in a great Legs Circuit and 20 min treadmill walk since my back is still a little stiff and sore.

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Had a busy day practicing the program again .. I think I came up with an idea .. without spending the money .... WOOHOO !!!!!

It was a fun but quiet day .. a brain day .. lol lol .. I practiced so much I got "mouse" writers cramp .. lol ... I think I may have an idea .. but we'll see .. :) There are so many cliparts on line .. Now that I know how to pull outside photos, and scribbles in from other programs ..

So -- the practicing continues .. I'm excited waiting for my "pen holder" .. :) Oooo the options !!!

Played golf, and things were back to normal .. had a bad hole, and well -- ended up with +7 as my final score .. really a surprise since the hole was a +10 .. eek ..

This morning I'm heading out to get my nails done .. and then maybe get some fresh air, and sunshine in the neighborhood park on the way home .. and see if I can hunt down that little fox .. lol lol ..

While I was getting ready this morning, hubby yelled up the stairs .. "a deer in the front yard" .. :) so I ran downstairs, and grabbed my "toy" .. :) and while they were a big fuzzy .. I don't know if it's the window, or the light fog, or what, but I found a few that looked good .. :)





So -- that just sparked my interest once again .. :) and then for those that haven't seen a robin red breast yet .. :)



Other than that ... it's going to be a good day .. I need to get myself going here .. :) NAIL DAY !!!! WOOHOO !!!! SALLY PAMPERING !!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!!

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Yesterday; was just one one of those days .. I said the sky was blue and he would say the sky was purple .. I got tired of getting snapped at, so I just gave up and went up in my playroom and spent the day up there .. I think just being nervous about the painter guy coming over, set his pattern .. It doesn't happen often, and we all have our "sour" days .. yesterday was his for the year .. lol lol lol ..

Next week has stuff that I'm excited about .. it's not much stuff, just fun stuff .. :)



Thursday is Uly's first birthday (yes I have a vivid imagination ... lol) He was given to me last year; because Unicorns have been my "symbol of energy and fun" and with the warmer weather he's becoming more active again .. :).. We're not sure what we're going to do .. but he's struggling being a good boy .... and well ... after using his birthday to keep him being a good boy; I don't know what I'm going to do after Thursday .. lol lol .. Nooo he's a good boy !!!

Thursday morning is also my first chair yoga day .. There will be a friend there "saving me a seat" .. :)

and Saturday is breakfast with my friend from puppy club, (and delivery of the quilt .. YAY !!!)

So -- I have things to look forward to this next week .. :) YAY ME !!!!

Yesterday .. it was safer for me to just stay up in my playroom .. so that's what I did .. I played with my new computer, and practiced with the program for the cutter .. it's not a familiar program, so practice practice and more practice .. and now that I know how to use it, I will connect to the cutter, and maybe do some cutting .... it's learning ... and will come ..

Unfortunately ... getting ready for the painter guy to come mine and hubby's playroom turned into emergency storage room .. so I have to "dedeclutter" my room again .. so today will be working on that ..

Hubby is gone with mom and grocery shopping picking her up at noon .. so I have a few hours to just play .. and I'm looking forward to it !!! :)

I played in my dirt after the painter guy left .. and had fun .. making a mess .. I got 2 starter trays started .. don't know if they will work, but heck .. it was fun playing in the dirt .. :)

So -- things are back to normal .. hubby is back on an even keel, and it will be a fun day ... as I play with my toys .. :) WOOHOO !!!!! :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day !!!!! I'm going to .. the sun is out, the temps are warming up .. it's going to be a great day !!!!

It's 50 feels like 46 but started out in the upper 30's this morning. Fit quote for today: Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.--Samuel Johnson Motivational quote for today: Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and got in a good Chest Circuit and Chest/Triceps circuit then trained some of the other muscles that I missed earlier in the week. Next week's schedule got published early so I know I can get into the gym 4 days but get all 5 workouts in since I can do Thursday's workout on Wednesday and Wednesday's workout on Tuesday when I'm off and have more time. Yesterday I ordered a screen protector and case for my Versa face and should have it Friday. Update on my back it's feeling better only used Bio-Freeze this morning and wore my Copper Care back brace all day but took no Ibuprofen or use anymore Bio-Freeze.

Home safe and sound...

Had a wonderful time
Machines were naaaastyyyyyy, mom came back alittle bit today..I didnt *sigh*
Were the victims of road rage on the way home, but nothing happened ...I just stayed focused in where I was going to get out of it if she didnt change her mind ....I was drivingin a lane that merges (after making the Madison turn toward Milwaukee)...and she insisted on driving next to me .. I would speed up, she sped up, I pretty much came to a stop (because she was pushing me over toward the inside) and she almost came to a stop to block me in. .. the only difference was I was being pushed onto the emergency lane ...I could stop.legally .. she was in a driving lane and was almost to a stop ...

All of a sudden she just burned out of there ... I must not have been a fun enough subject ... this was all after her almost taking off my passenger back panel ......thankfully NOBODY was hurt, even though she suffered greatly in my thoughts and I was shook up a bit ...

But Im home safe and sound ...and happy Im home...Im going to have to push my way into bed tonight.... the gleesome threesome is in my spot... hubby said they camr up last night when it was raining ...and asked if he wanted them to sleep with him ...lol

Other than that ... we had a wonderful time!!! But Im glad Im home. ....

Tomorrow hubby has an appointment to have a painter come in to give and estimate on the house ...and then we're going to play in the dirt ...lol plant our starter veggie plants ... and I have a plant that was overwatered, that I want to save... Its been going "bloop bloop bloop" ..

So Im looking forward to tomorrow ...

Talk later ....hope everyone had a great day ...and I'll catch up tomorrow...

It's 43 feels like 36 with a high of 46 and windy today. Fit quote for today: Bad habits are like chains that are too light to feel until they are too heavy to carry.--Warren Buffett Motivational quote for today: When universal timing and our timing are different, that doesn't mean things aren't working. Trust the process. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,232 steps. Back feeling better so going to get today's Chest circuit and Chest/Triceps circuit in and maybe tomorrow's workout too will see how I feel after I finish the first one.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a GREAT day again yesterday .. (this is becoming a habit .... so funny how things improve when you get rid of toxicity .. lol)

Saw 3 robins yesterday .. didn't get a picture of any of them .. 1 while driving and 2 huddled to the house and couldn't reach them .. Now if we can keep Mother Nature on her temperment pills we'll have it made .. lol ..

Today my "cutter .. computerized die cutter" is scheduled to be delivered, and now that I know the specifications of the computer ... I am stopping today on the way to mom's to see if they have the computer that I found .. it's big enough to hold my photos and to be used as a craft computer .. :) If they have it, I will pick it up on the way to mom's and just leave it there until we come back home ..

Hubby is doing awesome from his tooth pulling ... the hardest part is that he can't have "soda" for 24 hours.. I did emphasize that he SHOULD hold off as long as possible from drinking with a straw .. I've never had the "pockets", but from people that I know that have them ... it's horribly painful .. they suggest 10 days; but I know it's not going to be that long .. but he's counting the minutes until he can have a soda ... lol ..

Today I pick mom up for our overnighter .. :) around noonish .. :) I'm excited .. :)

Hope everyone has a great day and I will stop in later !!! :) PROMISE ...

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had the most wonderful day yesterday .. and today driving down to meet up with hubby .. Poor guy had his last wisdom tooth pulled this morning .. so I MAY be on my own with my eating today .. lol ..

Bella .. ooo yes .. I had worked in an office surrounded by windows, which was I think worse .. You could see it but not touch .. lol .. I used to get out as much as I could .. while I couldn't take "breaks" in the break room (because they would hunt me out), I would take breaks outside, and just walk a couple laps around the outside of the building (not a big building) .. that's how I got my fresh air .. Yes .. yesterday was gorgeous .. and I'm sooo looking forward to the "nice weather" ..

Hope everyone has a great day.. and we'll talk later ... :)

Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but did achieve my steps per hour goal and had 13,897 steps. Think I might take today and maybe tomorrow off from the gym but will get something in while letting my back rest it's still really hurting.

I work in an office that doesn't have windows but I get a chance to get outside and walk from building to building several times a day. It was beautiful yesterday...what a teaser!

I went outside after work to measure some of the flower beds and begin to plan what I'll be planting. I tore out a lot of plants last summer that were not doing well and/or just became too much. I want to plant Lavender bushes, weigela and, maybe a forsythia. I love the burst of yellow in the spring emoticon

Spring will soon be here! Have a beautiful day, Bella

It's 54 now but started out in the 40's this morning. Fit quote for today: Whatever you do, you should do it with feeling.--Yogi Berra Motivational quote for today: The best thing about a hug is that when you give one away you still have an endless supply. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors, calories burned and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,436 steps. Got in a great Legs circuit and instead of self powered treadmill I did regular treadmill. This was due to my sore back from lifting the heavy stuff unloading truck on Friday as my back is still extremely sore.

Good morning to my friends .. :)


Enjoying my first Monday after time change headaches, in about 40 years, that I could just take the day and let my body adjust to the hour difference instead of shoving it down my throat .. lol lol ..

I had a wonderful putzy day yesterday as well .. between playing with my camera and just putzing around the house and getting my laundry done; (not including my towels) I didn't just sit on my backside either .. :) YAY ME !!!!

I read some more about camera settings .. I actually met someone that is offering me the help that I can use .. between the class I took, and my memories of the past Canon film camera we had, and the information I get from a "page" that I'm a member of .. I am learning alot .. :) It's not just being thrown at me using "big words" making oneself "sound smart" .. but no further information ..

The sun was shining through the glass ice crystals on the trees yesterday .. :) I though it was so pretty .. :)







I had to giggle at myself (starting to do that alot again .. lol I'm a very entertaining person ... lol) but I read in my manual, that there is a "dot" in the viewfinder that will give you "perfect focus" .. Well -- My preference is Nature shots .. and well .. I could just imagine trying to get that dot "just right", and hoping that the critters stay put .. lol lol .. NOT going to happen .. I think I'll just depend on my eyesite .. and my focusing abilities .. lol lol ....

Going to lunch with Leonard today downtown (my town), and looking forward to it .. maybe after lunch, if the weather is nice, will take a walk ... we'll see .. :)

Wishing everyone a great day ..

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Thank you Val .. We're one that has to change .. but I'm excited because this is the first year that it's not going to throw me off .. I don't have to get up in the mornings .. :) So far .. so good !!! lol

Still feel like a mack truck ran into me yesterday .. but that's okay .. this is the kind of ouch that means "oh .. you did something" ... lol lol lol ..

Today I'm thinking of calling mom and cancelling out going over to her place ... the roads are icky, and things are icy .. I don't want to take my chances .. I'll be seeing her on Wednesday .. for our overnighter .. so today my laundry is NOT going to be safe .. lol lol ..

I'm thankful for a friend, that has gone through the 'friendship of the idiot (or LOSS of friendship lol) ' .. and even though I have gone through that before, he through me a left curve sending almost a "blackmail" message to hubby .. that "he knows things that I put in my blog" ... but it just caught me off guard .. (just for the FYI .. hubby does know what's in my blog, because I talk about my 'thoughts' I put in there ... *sigh* ) but my friend is there to talk to, if I need to .. because she'd been through it herself ..

I had a wonderful day yesterday .. and by the time we got home, the weather was changing, and I was happy to be home .. I played up in my room for a few hours, listening to my CD's :) and finished a project I had been working on .. :)

So -- on to today .. I wish everyone a great day ..

It's 30 feels like 28 with a high of 50 for today. Fit quote for today: It takes 20 years to make an overnight success.--Eddie Cantor Motivational quote for today: Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. Almost all green yesterday just missed active minutes but think the floors were mostly from the extreme wind we had. Achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,304 steps yesterday. Plan is to get into the gym all 5 days even if it means going after 4PM .

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Val -- thank you for the information on Women's day .. I was totally unaware ... Now I'm smarter !!! lol lol Thank you !!!!

Sarah -- you continue to amaze me on all that you put into your workouts .. You should be sooo proud of yourself .. Keep going !!!!

Yesterday was a NON sugar day, and I'm happy to say that I'm pretty much done with my withdrawals .. however, the cravings kicked in (the final steps to withdrawals) but I worked through them as well .. :) I didn't give in .. WOOHOO !!!!

Well -- the headache isn't over .. (story in my blog) but my "toxic friend" is up to his old tricks again .. and started out my morning upset .. but that's okay .. I'm bigger than that .. while he is back to his old tricks .. I no longer care .. It just irritates the daylights out of me, that he is soo malicious .. can't just call it a day, but tries to make my life h**l .. Last time he went to all of our mutual friends, and I was getting emails from everyone "whats going on" .. and all I did was reply that he and I have parted ways, and that was that .. and now it's starting again, with an attempted malicious message to hubby "trying" to tell what I post in my blog .. (like my life is so exciting .. lol) ..

ANYWHO ... Had a good day yesterday, and I'm a member of a page on FB, that posts photos .. and I saw someones post, that was beautiful, and I posted MY attempt at the same thing .. he told me what settings he used .. and that got my interest in "what the different settings" will do .. this made me find the Owners Manual for my camera (doesn't come with the camera anymore) on line, and downloaded it .. and started reading, taking notes, and "seeing" what the different settings will do .. THIS is how I learn .. not listening to everything I'm doing WRONG and not saying HOW to fix it .. ... So I spent a couple hours just studying .. :)

Today -- we're heading to the zoo for behind the scenes day .. :) I've never ever done that, and am looking forward to going .. and the rain is being put off until later in the day .. by that time we will be done and probably back home .. and if that's the case, I may just take my camera along .. the short lens to see what happens with that .. :) we'll see .. may just chicken out, and just take my cellphone .. my camera is not waterproof ..

Hope whatever you get into is fun .. and full of happy !!!! :) I'm hoping that you have a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!

It's 52 feels like 46 with a high of 61 for today and rain showers. Fit quote for today: If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can't accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.---Rosalynn Carter Motivational quote for today: A new you can still emerge from the old you. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 19,115 steps. Won't know my work schedule for next week until sometime today to plan my workout times of day and number of days. Hoping for 5 days but will take 4 if that's all I can get in.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Just a finishing of my hangover headache .. no .. not alcohol, but sugar .. yes .. You can get a hangover from sugar .. lol lol .. and I've suffered from it ..

Today will be a protien day, and get myself back in line ..

Pretty much had zero energies yesterday, but feel more energetic today .. I'm even to the point of thinking of ordering my Brother cutter .. :) I've finished my desk drawers, and only have a couple of corners to work on ..

So -- that's what I'm looking forward to today .... and tomorrow .. Hubby said they are having the behind the scenes tour at the zoo .. it's supposed to be raining, so I probably won't take my camera, but will have my phone camera with me .. That sounds like it will be fun !!! :) and with the rain, it may detour others from joining in .. I just have to make sure I don't get myself sick for next week and my overnighter .. lol .. The challenges of life .. :)

Okay -- I made a mistake yesterday ... and I put that little spoiled brat back in the corner ... she's being punished ... and today I'm going to have fun !!! :)

Wishing everyone a great day .. and talk again later .. :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Out of my system, and feel good about getting rid of toxicity .. :) Removed a VERY toxic friendship from my life .. and I feel good !!!!

Toxicity: the quality of being toxic or poisonous .....

I don't like poison .. so we go faaaaar away . :)

I'm on my own today .. mwaahaahaaahaaahaa !!!!

Hubby took a run to the Dells, and asked if I would like to go; but I told him no, because I'll be going next week with mom for the overnighter .. :) sooooo he's off on his own .. I told him to go and have fun .. :)

So -- I'm hoping to take my computer in to visit "Geek Hospital of Wisconsin" .. and get her USB fixed .. :) and with the temps going up .. who knows where I'll end up .. but it will be a day for me .. :) Just what the doctor ordered .. :)

While I enjoyed my day with mom .. we started out with her doctor, and he and I just don't see eye to eye .. I keep my comments to myself, because mom likes him, and so it's not my choice.. so I stand and keep quiet, and "try" to answer when he asks questions pointed at me .. *sigh* .. lol .. but after that .. well -- my guard was up, and while we had a wonderful day ... it was guarded .. We ended up playing puzzle on the beast we were working on on Sunday .. which gave me a chance to get silly .. lol lol ..

Then coming home to his "pity party - poor me" ramblings .. guess I had had enough .. and while I knew this was coming .. that was the final straw .. case closed .. and I wish I could block my blog .. but the only way that can happen is if I close off my page to everyone except friends .. and that's how I meet new people .. many of which turn into friends .. :)

So -- today I'm on my own .. and heaven only knows what trouble I can get into .. lol lol ..

The temperatures are higher, and I think I would love some fresh air and a bit of movement .. with everything that went on yesterday .. I'm stiffer then stiff this morning, and need to work out the kinks .. :) Nothing better then fresh air to fix that !!! :)

Have a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!!

Good morning to my friends . :)

Had another great day yesterday (this is becoming a habit .. lol) .. with the exception of an almost car accident; where I found a patch of ice and thankfully recovered but my heart pounded outside my chest and it took awhile to get my nerves back where they belonged .. deep breaths .. it really does help .. lol lol .. (detail story in my blog .. emoticon )

Met hubby down at the downtown casino yesterday, and well .. I hope things change before next Wednesday for the overnighter with mom .. or I'll be sitting and doing postings in the cafeteria alot .. lol lol .. (looking forward to that)

Dinner was fun .. food was eh .. but the company was great !!!! :)

Today will be spent with mom .. starting out at her doctor's appointment, and then to lunch, and whereever she wants to go .. :) I'm just looking forward to spending time with her today .. :)

Hope everyone has a great day .. :) I'm going to !! the sun is out, and I've got plans !!! :)

Good afternoon my friends .... :)

Had to run this morning .. :) Hubby gave me the choice of going downtown on my own, and so I could stick around and at least take my time and do my blog .. He headed down there around 6:30, and I wasn't even up and moving at that time .. lol lol ..

Went down there, and got there about 9ish .. it was a lost cause .. but the good news is we got at least 50% of our free $$ .. :) however .. I kinda spent money to get my original pointages .. lol .. Machines NOT good to me . :(

We came home, and hubby picked up a Culvers burger which was yummy .. I hadn't eaten breakfast with the exception of a banana ... had a mega case of IBS this morning .. and it wasn't playing nice .. but all's settled, and I enjoyed every bite of my burger .... I had a yogurt for dessert .. :)

Going out to dinner tonight with my friends .. :)

So -- I'm so far having a nice day, and looking forward to a super afternoon .. and fun dinner with my friends .. :)

Hope you have a great day !!! and we'll talk later !!!! !

Good morning to my friends .. :)

What another wonderful day yesterday ..

Had yummy "modified" french onion soup .. Had mine with beef and mozzerella cheese .. YUMMM hubby just had his as french onion soup .. no additionals .. :)

Took my camera with me over to mom's and again .. the critters knew .. *sigh* .. I did drive by a lake, and saw some ducks in an open patch of water .. I took the photos from the car, and got a couple pictures of the side of a few cars that passed me .. and the other photos were little dots .. I guess they were too far away .. thank goodness for digital ... and the ability to delete .. lol lol ..

My time with mom was WONDERFUL !!!! and we played a MEAN puzzle .. lol.. she had one started .. a 750 piecer .. and I told her that we could play with that one .. :)

I told her I got a hotel coupon for $39, if she wanted to go for an overnighter next week if I could get a room .. and she jumped at that offer .. :) and asked me to call while I was there .. lol lol .. I told her that my coupon was at home .. and I need the code ..

Well --before I left, she found HER coupon, and it was for a FREE night .. so we jumped at that, and I called and made the reservation for next Wednesday-Thursday .. :) We'll go up later on Wednesday, and then we can play as well on Thursday if we want ..

She was like a school girl on her first date . lol lol .. I could only giggle .. :)

She told me how much fun she has with me and our "out" days .. and I told her I have the same fun .. I look at her like a friend as well as my mom now .. :)

Today -- I'm thinking of just working up in my playroom .. Hubby wants to go downtown, but with the weather .. he's alittle skeptical .. I have a couple drawers calling my name in my playroom .. getting there .. if I can just get past the call of the game computers .. lol lol ..

I got a surprise yesterday when I got home .. Hubby bought me a new TV for my sitting room .. now I just have to learn how to behave .. I was getting there .. not being called by the TV's.. but getting stuff done .. :) So now my discipline has to start working .. :) I made a note in my blog .. Why is it that bad habits are sooo much easier to install then good habits .. lol ..

Wish everyone a wonderful day .. I'm in my happy place, and anyone is welcome to join me !!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Late start this morning .. blog was having problems being writ .. emoticon but we got something out ..

I'm happy to say that yesterday ended up a wonderful day, even though it was making a sour turn .. I made sure the headache didn't take over, and it worked. . YAY ME !!! and changed out a few things in my day; and ended up having a wonderful time .. :)

We DID go downtown, and played for a bit .. hubby was surprised I played as long as I did for as crowded as it was .. :) but I was having fun .. Machines were "ehh" ..but I walked out with at least 1/2 of my "allowance" he gives me .. :) that was good .. trust me ...lol .. I was at the end, and got a good hit, that brought it back to 1/2 way, and I hit the cashout button so fast even MY head was spinning .. lol lol ... instead of trying to bring it back to 100% .. lol ..

But I had my Poboy sammich, and it came with fries ... we went up to the seating area upstairs by the fast food places .. He sat with me and helped me eat my fries .. he had been eating more for lunch .. so he wasn't hungry .. but I enjoyed every bite of my sammich .. :) YUMMMM ...

and then we had our caricature done.. :) That was fun !!! Even had fun talking with people in line .. thankfully the line wasn't long .. lol lol ..



We didn't get home until about 9:30 .. and I went upstairs .. and as fast as my head hit the pillow, I was gone .. never heard hubby come upstairs .. lol ..

I slept sound until 6 this morning ..

I am back in my happy place .. and we're having the soup for lunch .. Every time we walked in the house yesterday; we were slapped in the face with the most yummmmmmmy aromas .. lol ..

Today .. I'll be heading over to mom's .. stopping, on the way, at Goodwill to drop off my curling irons .. I sorted them out a few weeks ago and well -- have forgotten them the last few times I went out .. I had more curling irons, and flat presses than I had hair ..lol ..

So -- with that being said ..I hope everyone has a great Sunday !!!!

Plan right now is to get into the gym 4 days but weather and road conditions will be the deciding factor.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a putzy but good day yesterday .. and got my camera photos downloaded to a thumb drive, formatting my card this morning for the first time .. "scarey" .. lol .. but it was easy .. (almost TOO easy .. EEK)

Today looking forward to working in the kitchen .. Picked up some low cut beef meat and soup bones yesterday ... gonna cook them up and use my onion that has been on my counter too long .. to make some french onion soup .. will be nice for the next couple of days coming up ...

and then catch up again on my laundry .. DARN how that happens .. lol lol ..

Hubby is thinking of taking a road trip up to the Dells, and I told him to go if he wants .. I have enough to keep me busy around here .. and since I had such a wonderful day on Thursday .. I don't want to come crashing down with a bad day .. If I have a bad day, I have no interest in pushing that issue .. soooooo when I feel like going again, I will say something .. but usually give me a week .. going every day like he does (plays the free money) is just not fun for me, however .. he's a bigger putze than I am .. so it's something he enjoys .. lol .. and he's very regimented to budget while playing .. so I'm not concerned .. :)

So -- looking for a quiet day .. and the trouble I'll get into will be here .. :)

This upcoming week; is going to be comfortably busy.. :) Dinner with friends on Tuesday, and spend the day (mom's doctor appointment) on Wednesday ... so far nothing else is filled in .. :) but we'll see what happens as the week goes on .. :) It's still fresh in the month, and it can change in an instant .. mwaaahaahaahaahaaa !!!!

So -- as you can see there's nothing really going on, and I'm looking forward to spending time putzing around the house .. :)

Have a great day ..

It's 28 feels like 19 with a high of 37 for today. Fit quote for today: The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.--Wilson Mizner Motivational quote for today: Practice is the best of all instructions. Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 13,580 steps. Won't know until sometime later today my work schedule for next week to plan my workout days and times of day. Hoping for 5 days this week but we will see with this crazy weather too.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Welcome March .. one step closer to spring !!! :)

I am in SUCH a happy place right now.. I don't want to leave, so inviting everyone in .. lol lol ..

I have to laugh .. I am enjoying my new camera, and am learning more and more each day .. I have a "friend" that had been telling me everything I was doing wrong .. without telling me HOW to fix it ?? I don't do that well, and left him have it one day .. he's backed off .. but I get my YAY's when I post my pictures, and I have had people tell me that I should submit my photos in contests, and a few of my zoo photos, I should submit to the zoo for their use .. and while I know I'm not good enough for that stuff, I get a Phhhhfffffttttt to this "friend"... and think "IN YOUR FACE" .. lol lol ..

Leonard and I exchange photos through texting ..he does some beautiful landscape photos with his phone .. and I sent him some photos yesterday .. and he specifically called me yesterday while I was at the casino, and told me that I should really think about submitting photos to a contest .. :) That made me feel really good .. that's one of the best compliments someone could give me; while I'm critical enough of my work, I know I'm still learning, but thought that was so sweet that he made the effort to specifically call me and tell me that .. :)

I had a wonderful fun day yesterday. I don't think ANYTHING could have messed my day up .. people at the casino were fun to be with, I most always have fun with happy hubby, the machines played, and I just plain had a wonderfully fun day .. :)

We got home, and I enjoyed dinner with hubby .. we picked up chicken tenders with the last of our February coupons, before we left .. just rewarmed it, and enjoyed it .. :)

Hubby uncapped the first rootbeer, and I tasted it .. heck .. it's not perfect but the emergency substitutions didn't hurt it too bad .. lol ..

I had some things to do on line, and decided to take the big step of changing up my Sparkpage .. Fresh month, fresh start, fresh outlook !!! :)

Wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going out and running errands today while hubby is out shopping with mom .. :)
