a kind of setback
Wednesday, January 27, 2021      8 comments

Love my State Park
Thursday, June 06, 2019      5 comments

I went fishing again this morning and caught a limit (25) of bluegill from shore. A bit of hiking, a few hours fishing, and a few hours cleaning my catch, tiring but worth it! I love it that I have a State Park nearby with a lake, plenty of sh... Read more

This weekend we had an ice storm in West Michigan. We gathered about half an inch of ice where I live, but thankfully we did not lose electricity as 50,000 others did. We were fortunate. But it is April 15, why is there an ice storm when I am... Read more

I bought the Charge 2 model, which does sleep tracking. It is interesting to see the past 2 days worth of progress, I can see when I woke up and restlessness during the night. It isn't nearly as bad as I thought it might be, I was afraid my em... Read more

I'm moving past ragweed pollen season and getting active again. I had a rough late summer/early fall with hay fever allergies to the max, causing a sinus infection with a touch of walking pneumonia to go along with it. I had to take antibiotic... Read more

That is the American name, technically it is Panyang Congou and comes from China. I bought from Adagio teas online, cheaper than other brands such as Teavana, but it is available where ever good quality tea is sold. It is a smooth black tea wi... Read more

I found some bluegill on beds yesterday when I was out for catfish, so I hit the hiking trail and fished from shore for 3 hours this morning, caught my one man limit of 25 big males. Then cleaning them, and cleaning up from cleaning them, all t... Read more

So I have been sick more of the time than not since Thanksgiving. Virus after virus, I'd get better for a few days and never all the way before catching something else with different symptoms. I went in to the doctor, but had a virus. It just... Read more

These levels take sooo long to accumulate the points for at this level... My 500-something day streak was interrupted by our move or I would have hit this major goal last week. My reward for hitting my Spark goal was to buy myself a ... Read more

I unpacked my massive library of books to start sorting them out last night. I have 23 bankers boxes that were packed for the move. I am sorting into piles of authors and I'm going to shelve them by author in series order, or release date. I ... Read more
Moved, so I missed my streak
Tuesday, October 20, 2015      3 comments

In the process of moving we didn't have internet access for a while. I downloaded the app to my phone but I was too busy to use it, I didn't really care for it anyhow. My login streak was 590 days straight, now I am on day 2 (starting over). ... Read more
