3 days of dragging logs, splitting logs and stacking. Lots of sweat but sure is nice to have this done! Should last the winter šŸ˜ Only saw two snakes šŸ. One was thrown into the fire and the other stuck his tongue out at me and slithered off towards the field. I let him go. šŸ˜¬

We move travel trailers for people around the country and occasionally we get a sweet treat. A guy wanted his trailer that had been flooded in Harvey hauled to the dump. We asked what he wanted for it and he gave it to us full of lots of usable stuff just to move it out of the park he was in. This is some of the weights. When I get back from my 5000 mile trip Iā€™m starting a new weight training program šŸ‹ļøā€ā™‚ļøšŸ˜

    hi Ginger (snap), lol
    thanks for reading and replying once again to my blog. I kind of made myself laugh when I was writing it. It's good to know I still have a funny bone. haha
    1000 spark streak? I think i had something like that in 2010-2011. Yeah, it was a groaner when I realized what happened. And to top it off--I recall that I actually DID track and otherwise at Spark....just forgot to check in one day. They should give us a free chance---like we can miss one day with a warning (like failure to stop at a traffic marker.--so we can be especially careful not to do it again....and we don't lose everything. This should be renewable every 6 months.
    Have a great day!

    Hey Gingersnap! (my favorite cookie!)
    thanks one more time, for cheering me on in my blog writing. You are a good friend to plow through my long blogs every morning. I have not yet mastered the art of "short and sweet". haha.
    oh well.
    I write like I think: circuitously .
    have yourself a great day!

    HI Ginger!

    four words. "WE CAN DO IT!"

    having the proper mindset is something like crossing Niagra Falls on a tightrope. emoticon But we know it is possible because someone else has already done it. emoticon

    I battle often with discouragement. Sometimes it seems like my food consumption is sterling...but I still either stay the same or worse: gain, weight. That's when we have to preach to ourselves...and ,if possible ,have a friend preach it to us. You have encouraged me so much through your comments on my blog. I hope that - even to a small extent- my words have encouraged the Spark!

    we can do it!

    hi Ginger!
    Thanks for the blog comment and for taking the time to read it. I'm going back home on Wednesday. Prayers appreciated.
    have a splendid evening.. the Trees at my dad's are stunning. We both said that this is the most beautiful autumn foliage-wise that either of us have ever seen. Our little Catskill town is FULL of what residents call "Leaf Peepers" on the weekends. Traffic is horrible. We only have one stoplight in town because of the powers that be who want to keep the "quaint small town" image. Dinner is soon....spaghetti and meatballs. YUM! Have a good sleep tonight. I will try also.
