Days 58 and 59

Friday, September 19, 2014

Thursday night my husband's older sister treated us to supper and a comedy show and all we had to do was pick her up and take her with us. We had a good time and some laughs.

This afternoon I picked up our bibs for Sunday's 10K. My son and grandson are running. I will be mostly walking. I am hoping I might be able to do some jogging but we will see. My goal is to finish. It may be a rainy morning.

I was able to visit with my oldest son and his family as the event will be held in their town. The field where we start and finish is very close to where they live. I told them what time we start and estimated finish time and told them I would be happy to have them cheer us on. We will see if they were listening. We had a nice visit.

Tonight we had coffee with friends from the city. Now that there is a Tim Hortons in our town it is much easier to invite friends to join us. It was good.

    Great job for the 10K think of me because I will be cheering you on across the miles. I am looking forward to hear you have finished.

Just getting yourself on the route is a great experience. Keep thinking about how you are doing. It will be a long walk for you HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 57

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

It was another lovely day although it was quite chilly first thing in the morning. Hubby in particular is feeling the cold. I had lunch with my friend at noon. We were watching the yellowjackets from the window of the restaurant. They have a trap hung but there were still a lot of wasps flying around. My friend was stung by one that got into her car on Sunday. Her finger is very itchy. She said it woke her up last night.

    This morning We thought it was cool but as soon as I went outside to walk I needed my visor, glasses and I had to take off m y sweater. We walked 4 miles @ 9 a.m.
It is great when you find good walking buddies. Alas despite tracking, hours of yard work and lifting heavy paving stones. I gained instead of losing. HUGS Pat in Maine.
Still I feel good except for aching back and hands. ((((HUGS)))) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 56

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Tuesday was a nice day. Hubby and I and the two dogs walked to the post office and pharmacy this morning. I got another new battery for my Fitbit today. I 'think' it is working properly again. I hope so. I want a record of my steps on Sunday when I do 10K.

Day 55

Monday, September 15, 2014

It was a dull, fall-like day. It rained a couple times. I brought the canvas that covers our gazebo all summer in to store it for the winter (before it rained). I canned some of our tomatoes. We are very happy with the tomatoes this year. They are nicely formed and very tasty. I have not had to cut out any bad spots and we have not needed to discard very many. The green beans have done well too. I should have kept track of how many meals we got from the one package of seeds. Now the mums are blooming. It is the middle of the month already. Another week until the official start of fall. I hope winter passes as quickly as summer did.

    I am still doing yard work instead of cooking but No-one else can do it. Just another thing my family taught us. Made the path much wider and now I have to sow grass seed I wish I could buy TURF around here. Well done on that bumper crop. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
