When I'm doing my Bodypump class, Sami is always entertaining. Today she was circling the monitor and get a claw caught in the tower. I had to stop to get her free. At least it was during the lunge track; I hate lunges. Our area hasn't h... Read more

I'm sitting next to an open window listening to the rain. There's some thunder in the background, so I'm hoping that a the rain doesn't get too crazy. None to soon, I planted my annuals today. Time to close the window. I'm feeling ra... Read more

The temperature is 67, and I've got the thermostat set at 75. It's time to turn off the A/C and open the windows. When I cut the grass at around 5 PM, it wasn't nearly so pleasant. I was sweating so much that my clothes were sticking to m... Read more

Again I was weeding around the patio until it got dark. I would like to say it was a quiet evening, but the planes were coming in for a landing. Just by the sound, I've gotten pretty good at picking out the 747s. Something else to add to my r... Read more

Lots of grumbling at the office today. There were complaints about how often the boss calls the ladies at home when they are working remotely. He's been known to micromanage. Over the last year or so, I doubt that I've gotten more than 10 cal... Read more

While I was weeding around the bird feeder, there was a bunny in the yard. It was pretty clear that the rabbit would have preferred that I take a hike, so it could sift through what the birds left behind. I don't think the bunny thought I was ... Read more

Once again, Sami was climbing all over me while I was trying to do chest presses. Then she sat on the chair and supervised. I was so happy to be able to open up the windows and take a break from the A/C. It was also easier shooing out the... Read more

The area finally got some rain and, boy, did it come down. There was some thunder, and the kitties headed under my bed. It could just be my imagination, but the grass seems greener. That's the up side. The down side is that it will have ... Read more

When I drove to the dentist's office to get my teeth cleaned, I realized I hadn't had the car out of the garage since last Sunday. There's a reason my 11-year-old car has only 29,320 miles on it; I no longer own a horse. The training barns wer... Read more

When it comes to computer skills, mine are limited to what I've learned on the job. I'm so old that I learned to type on an manual Underwood typewriter, so I'm very grateful to my Spark friends who found alternate sites and groups to join. ... Read more

Since I'm still crazy after all these years, I have a therapist. Instead of going into the office, we've been talking over the phone. The object is to determine why I keep using food to deal with my emotions. My coping skills are lacking, and... Read more

I made sure I got out of the office earlier, and the "L" was much less hectic. It's been very dry, so I've had to water my garden almost daily. Since my watering wand needs to be retired, I keep getting squirted. It's a good thing it's wa... Read more

It was like a Disney movie under the birdfeeder. There were squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and birds! Sami was sitting in the window, and a rabbit got up close and personal with her. She was very interested. I'm glad it was an adult rabb... Read more
