A bad time of year

Sunday, November 23, 2014

It is a bad time of year with nothing but wet cold windy weather. I thought I would look back at what things have been like a few months ago just to cheer things up. I lot has been shown before but this will remind you of what I am missing here. No order only as they come.



River in Spring


That is it, I hope it cheers you up

    Wonderful pics Trev. Put a smile on my face for sure. I love Sunrise's like that one. Such a deep red. Good shot of the Moon! Are those Starlings as the feeder?

    I know how you feel - going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark is so tiring - I do enjoy the stars though! Must admit I'm sort of counting the days to the winter equinox on 21st December when the days begin to get longer again!

Too nice to stay in

Sunday, October 19, 2014

After being in or not going very far (because of the flu) I decided that is was too stay indoors. I loaded the car and set off for may favorite haunt, Bloors Wharf. This is a pier that sticks out on the river and lets you get near to he wildlife.
The trouble today was the wind was gusting and blew my tripod over, no camera on it at the time.

I managed to get set up and spent about 45 minutes taking pictures.

Have fun and a good week

Too much

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

It is like this, I wanted to go for a walk this morning, 2 miles round the block I thought no problem. I did it and felt good afterwards.

So good I decided to do this weeks 5k virtual walk, big mistake that as it was too far. The route did not let me take a short cut home so it was keep going. Now after (or still trying to get over the flu) that was not a good idea. So just to get home I had to keep going and finish.

I managed to get home but my time sucked 8 minutes over my best time a time I was doing two years ago.

Two good things:
I finished
I have something to aim for doing next weeks 5k.

    Hope you had a chance to fill the cupboards and get in some rest along with exercise. I want to get in 13K steps a day again with my walking so I am ramping up the walking this week and making sure I am active and not sedentary unless I am sleeping!

Happy Weekend~ emoticon

    I was just thinking this, you are still recovering from your flu so give yourself a little break on the time factor. I walk round my neighborhood quite a bit so I can get a little bored with it so sometimes I use the treadmill if I am struggling with steps. I am about to do a half hour outside in a bit here! This time of year I need to do my morning walks until baseball is up and then I have more breathing room in the evenings!

This week I am working at just getting more consistent with my walks and next week I'll worry about getting in the 10k+ for 5 days~

    Uh oh! You probably still don't have your strength back just yet after being sick. Get some rest & take it slow the next few days.

Being fit helps

Monday, October 13, 2014

Not been doing much over the last week as I have been down with the flu, Funny that as I only had a flu shot on 2nd of October. Well at least being healthy and fit now (lost 24K up to today) has helped get over it more quickly.

I can't really complain because it has I think been 11 year since my last belt of it. I have had a few colds but not one for near three years now.

I an hoping the tomorrow or maybe the next day to get back exercising. The mind wants to but the body says no.

It is funny but after nearly two and a half years of exercise not doing it for a few days make me feel as if I am doing something wrong. That is definitely a change of life style for me.

    I think being in shape & healthy has our body recovering faster from the flu and colds. I haven't been ill for a long while myself and I attribute it to being in shape, taking care of myself. Feel better soon~

    So sorry you've been sick!! Ugh!! They tell us here that it takes a full 2 weeks for the shot to become fully effective & it doesn't protect against all strains of the flu.

Hope you're feeling up to exercising again soon. Hang in there!

ups and downs week

Saturday, October 04, 2014

Yes it certainly has been that. but it started on Monday when I tried to take a picture of the new moon. I think it was the biggest pigs ear that I have done for a while.

Tuesday the same, yet another pigs ear. by this time I was wondering just what was up with me and the camera. In the end it was just on of those days. The next that night I had trouble with the gears on the bike and spent 3 hours trying to fix them over Wednesday and Thursday before taking the bike in to be fixed (something I should have done in the first pace). One good thing came out of Wednesday was that i got a good picture of the moon.

Wednesday was also the day I had my flu jab which wasn't too bad but the Doctor insisted that I had a shot for Shingles. Now I don't normally feel injection but that one was sore for two day and I had after effects with it too. I was so tired and only wanted to sleep. That took up Wednesday and Thursday.

Now Friday was a good day. I took the bike in to be fixed and my astronomy club went to a school and set up 6 or 7 telescopes and what a lot of interest we had. The teachers also had a camp fire and gave us toasted marshmallows (I only had two).

I got the bike back this morning.

Have a good weekend

    Great Moon shot Trev. Sometimes my shots do not turn out that well. In fact last night I had two horrible pictures of the Moon due to the hazy clouds. Then the next two pictures were ok. One of those things I guess. Sounds like your class was fun. Roasted Marshmallows. I haven't had that for years. emoticon

    The MOON was beautiful over here too. It looked so large. emoticon
Great job!!! emoticon

Bike fixed great!!! emoticon
BUT What I want to comment on is the shingles shot. Be glad you got it.
My shingles were on my Buttocks and entire back side for weeks sitting was very painful and burning.

Some days even driving if I sit too long it actually does still hurt. emoticon

PS I love the CRICKET. emoticon
