Good Wednesday to all my friends in Blogville.
Part of October's goals was to exercise more so I intend to get in 100 miles. Boy, has this month been flying by!
*Got out Monday for a 5 mile bike ride. Yesterday was beautiful and I got in an easy 10 miles.
I have a little bag on the front of my bike where I stash my phone and set it to Pandora and listen to music as I pedal along. Monday I put on Louis Armstrong and it was one of the most relaxing bike rides I've had in a long time. LOVED it!
*I always seem to forget what a mood enhancer exercising is. I feel great after a walk or bike ride.
*So I don't run an entire race but I don't walk the whole thing either. I guess I'm not really a runner nor can I say I'm a walker. I have no idea what I am. I do have two races this coming weekend and I plan on walk/running both. More walking on the 5k since I need my legs ready for the half marathon on Sunday.
*Allergies suck! I've been battling sneezing, watering eyes and nose all week. Not fun. Last night Chuck wanted me to take two Nyquil gels. I usually only take one. I passed out! Working through the Nyquil hangover today.
*Last weekend we took Rachel and her beau to the shooting range. Chuck is playing with his toy.
Rachel trying out some big, black rifle as boyfriend watches.
Me? I was reading a book on quantum physics. I just can't wrap my head around some of that stuff.
*Monday Chuck wanted some more range time so I tagged along but did some sudoku.
The blurry ones are so much more difficult. *snicker*
And I got to see a lovely sunset!
*I made up a cleaning schedule and put it on the fridge. For 15 minutes we clean the hell out of one part of the house. Feels good to accomplish things. A clean house is a peaceful house.
*The Orionid meteor shower occurred last weekend. The earth plowed through the debris field of Halley's Comet and we got to see the fireworks from it. I say "we" but this chick went to bed early and missed it all. BUT I'll show you how to collect meteorite dust! It's so easy.
An astronomer at George Observatory taught me how to do that a few years ago.
Tonight I'm going to try a recipe for salmon patties. I'll let you know how it turns out.
That's pretty much my life in a nutshell right now. Nothing too thrilling but I'm happy.
I haven't been stepping on the scale. Clothes are a tad bit tighter so I need to buckle down again. Ugh, stupid weight.
Hope you're having a fantastic week!
