It's 55 with a high of 64 but started out in the mid 30's this morning. Fit quote for today: You're never beaten until you admit it.--George S. Patton Motivational quote for today: When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sandpaper. They may scratch and hurt you a bit, but in the end, you end up polished and they end up useless.--Chris Colfer All green on my Versa, achieved my steps per hour goal and had 16,568 steps yesterday. Still fighting a sinus cold so may take the week off from the gym to get better but will see on Monday how I feel.

Today, I will experience what it would be like to live in a bowl of pea soup - it is SO foggy outside! I'm hoping it lifts a bit before I have to set out for work this morning.

I hope it's sunny wherever you are; have a great day, Bella/Pat

Good afternoon to my friends!!!

Now I can relax and enjoy vacation ... Hubby parked AT the airport so I wouldnt have to be concerned about him having to shovel the car out when we got home ...Im hoping it will go south (sorry Illinois and Indiana)

We are at the airport .. hubby went on his adventure walking, and to get my water bottle filled up ...

Now I can relax and have fun.. we stopped downtown and played a bit ... taking from our points, and walked away with a good chunk of $$

Im going to miss my drawing but Im sure I will survive ....lol

We still have 1 hr 15 minutes, unless we load early ... Ok ... NOW im getting excited....

Change of pace ... please send prayers ... no ... not that I win lots, even though if you want to throw that in I wont complain .....
But seriously ... I just heard that Linda's (my cohort from work) mother had a stroke ... but is doing better .. she has been in the hospital since Friday morning ... please pray for a speedy recovery ... she's a nice person and has been enjoying making her quilts ... She was one of those ladies that was a major pain to work with, but had a heart of gold in daily life ... this made me sad to hear, but Linda says she is doing well ....

Hope everyone has a wonderful day ... Im going to!!! Now ....lol

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had a good day yesterday, and got my confidence back .. lol ..

Today running some fun errands, and then over to mom's .. I'm a bit nervous about today, because I need to have a serious conversation with her, and hope that it works out .. If it does, it will take a mega weight off my shoulders ... She passed something past me on Wednesday, and since I've had a chance to think about it, I have to tell her no .. so holding my breath ..

After that I will have this weight off my shoulders .. and I will be able to enjoy my vacation .. to a FULL extent .. :)

We leave tomorrow afternoon, so wave when you see a plane fly over tomorrow !!!! It will probably be me !!!!! :)

Wishing everyone a great day .. gotta get myself going here ... :)

Since I don't have access to a machine I need for an exercise in today's workout I asked my coach what alternative one I can do so I have an idea. In my workout I need an assisted dip press down machine but don't have one so will take an exercise band and stretch it across the bottom rung of a squat rack.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

We had more blowing than inches .. but it was enough to make everything all sloppy ...

I read last night on FB, that they closed down the freeway going out to hwy 26 .. because cars were sliding off the roads .. Scarey ... Guess I may not go out to visit my eagles for awhile .. cuz that's the direction I go .. and if the freeway was closed down .. it will be a while before the roads are clear enough .. when I drove downtown F. A. last time the roads were really not covered, and that was when everywhere else was taken care of .. so I'm thinking a smaller town .. they aren't as worried about their roads ..

Sooooo won't be seeing my eagles for a few weeks then .. :(

Today hubby has a dentist appointment, and then heading downtown for his ol'farts money .. I told him I don't want to go out until the roads are clearer .. (hoping mom gets the senior taxi to her hair appointment .. )

Wishing everyone a wonderful day !!!! Laundry, and playtime ... :) (trying to keep up with the laundry before vacation ..lol)

Have a GREAT DAY !!!!! and be safe if you have to go out !!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Fun quiet day yesterday .. Mom called and "gave me the day off" .. even though we had talked earlier in the week that I wasn't coming over, because I saw her on Wednesday and will see her again this coming Wednesday for lunch with her card playing friends.. :) If I go over too often we end up staring at the walls .. I told her to study her scrabble dictionary .. lol ..

Today going by my brother to drop off these fruitcakes and visit a bit .. Don't think we'll be going to the park, because they are talking snow .. and it's I think in Grafton area... but I'm still throwing my outdoor clothes in the car .. lol

Wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going to !!!! Even WITH the snow ...lol lol lol

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday got better again .. I finished another Max .. and actually really proud of him ...picture in my blog ..:)

I sent it to him, and got response of "pretty close .. looking good" .. REALLY?? (this is why I'm not doing this for money .. lol) .. Hubby saw that I was frustrated when I came into the bedroom, and he said "it's not worth doing if you're going to get frustrated" .. I told him that I was sooo enjoying myself, and I've only had 2 "requests" about doing their dogs .. the rest have been "my" choice, and my friends are just the recipients ... I was just frustrated, because Leonard was thinking I was a mind reader ..

This morning since I cooled off, I sent a text about "WHAT needed to be done for his "pretty close" " .... since I wasn't a mind reader anymore ..lol .. and his reply was exactly what I was thinking... the head needs to be a bit darker .. Men are from Mars ... Women are from Venus ... syndrome again .. lol lol .. but now that we have an understanding.. lol..

Today I'm not going by mom's, and hubby is going with me to cancel my gym membership .. I had gotten it when I was working, and it got me out and moving ... now that I'm retired, I can get outside more, and enjoy the fresh air instead ..

Wish everyone a wonderful day !!!! :) I'm going to ..the sun is out .. what better is that !!! :)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Quiet day today !!!!

Finished up my first Max last night .. I learned how to do curly hair and even WHITE curly hair .. it made sense when I watched the video; you work the "negative space" .. and made sense .. and it worked !!!! lol

So today while hubby is out and about, I'm seeing laundry, and playtime and a few chores ..

Hoping everyone has a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Had my quiet day yesterday ... Played in my playroom ... Gave myself a new challenge .. I have to figure out how to do long hair dogs, at an angle !!! ???

Leonard called and we talked a bit, and he asked if I would like to try "Max" ... and I said sure .. Max is an Aussiedoodle, so it will be my first experience with curly kinky hair .. I got the first couple of layers down last night, before my shoulders gave out .. :)

Today is a road trip to the Dells .. and tonight will be a cup of Smooth move tea .. (licorice based tea that works better than 15 exlax) ... I have to get things moving again .. This morning I feel UGH !!! but am planning on a good day .. I have got the plan to do a few laps around the casino in between machines .. I usually get good counts at the casino's because I do alot of walking, but doing it this way .. I will save money, and I will get steps .. lol lol lol ... the coffee has helped a bit this morning, and thankfully hubby is letting me take my time .. cuz 2 hour drive is quite a drive when you're "not sure" ..

Today is also TD's birthday !! He's 2 years old today .. the gleesome threesome is working their way into the Terrible Twos .. lol lol .. Found the other 2 last night .. lol



Remember to smile today !!! I'm going to !!!!

Good morning to my friends !!!!

Oh my goodness ... I was exhausted by the time I got home yesterday, but would not have changed a thing !!! In fact there were a couple stops that I didn't have time for .. *sigh* .. but Im so thankful today is a quiet day !!!

I did get some awesome shots yesterday .. ummm I went clicker happy ... ended up with over 1000 shots .. but well .. some of them didn't work .. lol lol ...

I met Tracy's (the lady that's been giving me all the information) sister yesterday at the lookout spot .. She seems as nice as Tracy .. :) I told her who I was; so she wasn't spooked that I seemed to know her .. lol .. She told me of a few other spots I can check out come spring, and where the blue heron rookery was located .. (now deserted, but come spring they are active) ...

I came home literally exhausted yesterday, but had such a wonderful day .. and I slept sounder than the dead last night .. lol .. I think the house could have blown away, and I wouldn't have known .. just pulled up the covers tighter .. lol lol lol ..

Today is a quiet day .. and tomorrow we're heading out on a road trip !!! Thankful I have day's in between this week, and so far next week .. because it's filled in as well .. lol ...

Hope you have a wonderful day !!!! :) I'm going to !!!!!

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Have been up and showered since 5:30.. (I'm not anxious to eagle hunt ??lol lol) so thought I would do up my blog and posting !!! I'm all packed and ready to go for the day !!!!

Hubby has been so supportive with my new hobby of Eagle hunting .. and my drawings .. I asked him if he had tubes, because the set of "pitties" I have to mail, and the big one, I don't want to fold to put in the envelope .. so he was searching his stock for a mailing tube .. the only one he found was about 36 inches long .. and I'm afraid if I cut it down, it will lose it's integrety, so I told him .. nope .. I only need one that's at least 12 inches long .. I will pick one up today in my running around .. :)

So -- I have a full day ahead .. Eagle hunting this morning .. getting myself ready right after this .. and then to mom's and then to visit my friend and drop off my german shepherd, and boxer pics (from way at the beginning) .. If her husband is there, I will ask him to get me some good pictures, and I will try again .. but we'll see .. don't want to put my foot in it .. but for now .. I'm excited to go visit her .. :)

The Puff one was put on the side .. that one stirred up wayyy too many emotions ... and while I plan on doing more .. I have moved on to my "stoned" border collie (picture in my blog) .. Hey .. gotta post the bad with the good .. so people see that it's not just falling out of my head and onto paper .. I have to struggle as well.. but I'm enjoying myself in my struggles, and even get a couple giggles along the way .. lol .. and this way people can see progressions just like me !!! lol

Okay --- gotta run .. have an appointment with a toothbrush and hairbrush, and then on my way out !!!

Have a great day .. I certainly am !!!!!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!!!

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Yesterday was success !!! Had a wonderful day staying home .. :) I pulled my drawing out of my head .. and it took all day, but I got a smiling pittie .. :)

I started a Kestral smiler .. but just got the head started .. Pulling the poses out of my head is more difficult, but it is my next step I guess .. lol ..

Kathy texted me last night, and cancelled our visit today .. I didn't know that they were planning on taking me to Harrington park to feed the birds .. That would have been awkward, me without my outside clothes .. We changed up to next week, and next week I will at least throw stuff in the car .. lol lol ..

So -- I want some fresh air ... so I'm going to go hunt out the spot that Tracy told me about .. I told hubby that if the roads are bad, I will turn around .. I will probably (as much as I hate it) take the main roads .. but we're gonna try .. :) Sunshine, and fresh air (some) sounds like a plan for me !!!

Wishing everyone a GREAT day .. and talk later .. (hoping with some pictures .. mwaahaahaahaaaahaaa!!!!!)

Good morning to my friends .. :)

Yesterday was a LOOOONNNNGGGG day .. after only a couple hours of sleep the night before .. I made up for it last night !!!! :) but forced myself to stay awake until AT LEAST 8:30/9:00 ish...

Met up with hubby downtown and had a yummy lunch, and then stopped to get my nails done on the way home .. really changed up .. denim blue, with mood changing .. turns dark blue when cold .. :)

Got home, and had a snacky dinner, and headed upstairs or it would have for sure turned into an "overtired snack fest" until bedtime ... so headed upstairs to work on "Rex" ... it was a pretty mindless task putting fur on last night .. :)

I crawled into bed, and slept like the proverbial dead .. until after 7 this morning .. I'm making up the ground meat into hamburger helper, and manwiches and still have to make up the butterfly steaks after I finish here.. :)

So -- it's a quiet day for me until dinnerish .. lol .. and looking forward to it !!!!

Meeting up with my friends for dinner tonight .. and looking forward to it .. (hope the snow stays away .. *sigh* )

Wishing everyone a great day .. and we'll talk again !!!! :)

Good morning to my friends !!!!

Yesterday was a great day .. (mom is just fine !!! :) ) and I got a Rosie picture done, that I'm truly happy with !!!! On to my Bear ... I actually stopped yesterday and did my journal .. (I oopsed it on Saturday .. DOH!!)

Today the sun is out and the sky is blue, and even though it's chilly out, I'm going to dress warm, get some fresh air; and go eagle hunting !!!! There is a spot in Fort Atkinson, that a friend told me about along a river, where eagles are spotted ... there are a number of eagle nests there, and I'm going eagle hunting !!!! :)

May or may not get my nails done today as well .. we'll see .. its about an hour drive to the eagle spot, otherwise I'll get them done tomorrow (have dinner tomorrow night with friends .. but my nails really are NOT that bad yet .. lol) I'm actually getting used to this gel manicure .. I may just continue with that ??? (just heavy duty polish)

Anywho .. that's my plans for today .. AFTER I get fresh air, I will play in my playroom .. emoticon

Wish everyone a wonderful day !!!! :) I'm going to !!!!!! :)

Well the results are in and apparently the majority of the marmot predictors are calling for an early Spring. Music to my ears, but I won't hold my breath - by the calendar (which has a more accurate record LOL) there's still six weeks left of winter.

Good morning to my friends !!!!

Made up the chili yesterday .. hubby said it was yummy, but I didn't get any .. I wasn't hungry come dinner time .. We had had burgers on the way to the mall, and then (weekend) he treated me to a Culver's concrete mixer on the way home .. I wasn't hungry for dinner .. so figured I would pass, instead of trying and ending up stuffing .. :) So -- I'll have some today for lunch !!!

Going over to mom's today .. and a bit apprehensive .. because she called to let me know she fell again on Monday night .. (thankfully she didn't call me, because that would have truly put me over the edge .. I was already hanging on with white knuckles from something else that already was causing me troubles) ... bu she said she's okay .. her shoe stuck while she was walking ..

I can understand that .. because sometimes when I'm walking during golf, around here, my shoe will stick because I don't pick up my feet .. but I have the ability to catch myself (most times) ... she shuffles .. so today I will see for myself that she's okay .. She said she was just stiff, which I can understand .. but she's okay .. I asked her every which way during the phone call, and she answered good each time ... she "just wanted to get to me before Ceile" .. lol lol ..

Today will consist of my drawing .. I'm getting color into my drawings now .. so a new adventure .. and my fingers get DOUBLE TRIPLE dirty now .. :) ... lol .. I finished the project that I needed to finish, and now I can play again !!!! :) I have another week to go to play with german shepherds, and boxers ..

The funny thing is that Tom (M*'s husband) said she made mention the other day that she wanted Bear, and Rosie pictures to put in her room (at rehab) and he said he had all to do to not say something .. lol lol .. She's getting all of them, and I almost have Rosie the way I want her .. and I have my scribble sketch for Bear .. which Tom said that one looks the most like Bear .. so I'm getting there .. :) My Rosie last night, is too boxie of a boxer .. she had a longer nose .. but I'm getting there as well .. I think one more try on that !!! the good news is I have all my "scribbles" in a folder ..so I can reference those, and come up with a good nose .. lol lol ..

The SUN IS OUT THE SUN IS OUT !!!! THE SKY IS BLUE THE SUN IS OUT !!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Okay --- wish everyone a great day ... I'm going to !!!!!!

Good morning FEBRUARY and friends !!!!! :)

Closed out my January with my step goal made .. :) Goal = 310,000 .. actual = 382,387 ... Only bad thing is this morning I start again at "ONE" .. no rollovers .. lol lol ..

Hubby just went out for some grocery shopping .. and picking up ingredients for chili .. I have some celery that has lost it's snack crunch, but still good for cooking .. so that's what I will be doing today ..

May go mall walking today with hubby .. (to start my February out on the right foot (or the left foot depending on how you look at it .. lol) ) this afternoon !!!!

Finished the 2 drawings that I was working on and MAY do 2 more .. I transfer all of them to the people that are getting them .. but for right now, I'm on a new mission .. I won't be able to get to see M* for this next week anyway .. :) I used one shot when Rosie was a puppy, my second one was "midlife" color ... and my next one I want to do as an older Rosie .. Hey .. if I'm having fun .. that's what counts .. :) but unfortunately .. I have something I need to do in the meantime ..Maybe I will do the "rough draft" to inspire me to keep going .... lol lol ..

I'm starting to get used to this retirement thing .. This is my first OFFICIAL February that I have no job worries .. in fact I saw the folder on my computer desktop "Bearings" .. and deleted it !!! WOOHOO !!!!! Moving forward !!!!!!!!!!! not dwelling in the past !!!!!!!!!!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Saturday !!! and talk later !!!! gotta get myself going here .. :)
