Enjoy the beach, all you Sparkies near the water! This weekend is supposed to get nice and hot in the Seattle area, where we're headed for a big party with my college friends - but the water never ever warms up enough to be even remotely tempting!!!

Looking forward to time with old and good friends, and hopefully catching up with another friend who may be out of town. Plus just hanging out in Seattle! Fun city!

Hi all. I have not checked in for a few days as we have run into problems on our drive. On Momday around 2:30 as we were driving through Montana we had transmission troubles. We were luck enough to find an easy pull off off just beside the highway with a tiny restroom. We called AAA and weeper to,d a tow truck would be there within an hour. Eight hours later we were still there. We called the highway patrol who had a truck out to rescue us within an hour. So now we are in Missoula, Montana awaiting Toyota to put a new transmission in our cehicle. This has turned out to be a very expensive drive home. You can add at least another 30% to the bill with the exchange.
The good news is nothing life thrusting happened so we have to count our blessings for thst.
Kayaking and swimming by the ocean sounds pretty good right now!!! 🙃

I'm checking in after a nap between moms Dr appointment and my dentist appointment. Now i feel headachy though. I hope it goes away after I get some lunch in me.
I'm debating heading back to work after the dentist or running errands and starting a fresh long work day tomorrow... I guess I'll find out!
I'm off to live the day out.

Have a great rest of the week everyone!

Good morning everyone!

I'm tired and anxious this morning, so will take a nap before trying to do anything productive. I think the anxiety is just irrational fear about recovering from this injury. I'm very eager to see the doctor tomorrow afternoon. I'll feel better when I know what the forward plan is, even if that plan is just "rest!"

Thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, and white light juju you've all been sending my way.

Good morning all, another hot one on tap for today. The heat should break by next week.

I am stuck at home today waiting for a delivery that requires a signature. It's a good day to do some sewing repairs. The stack is getting deeper. I'll feel better when it is no longer hanging over my head, the undone task that assails my eyes every time I enter this room. It's so easy to let non-urgent tasks slide until they become urgent.

Toni, Bess, my sister will be here next week. She lives 15 minutes from Atlantic City and never gets to the beach. I guess that's true for all of us who live near a popular destination. I only go to the museums in DC when someone visits who wants to go.

Hi all! Sounds wonderful Toni!

Healing wishes going out to all that need them.

I just realized I didn't check in yesterday. I started to and the day got away from me.

I took it easy yesterday. I've been running a lot. Muscles needed a break. Today is Orange Theory after work. Looking forward to a full workout!

Wellness Wednesday wishes to all!

Great to hear from you Toni - I love the beach best of all. Maybe I will get away in October - not much swimming but some great sand walks. And how cool is it to stay in touch with a high school pal. My oldest gf I met one day before I met Himself ... oh my - the day after Labor Day in 1971. Sigh. We still giggle at old memories.

I'm with you Maree - on the hump day. And I have a ton of stuff still to do before the weekend ... when I also have to work. ugh. but only for a few hours. Phebess - keep that stern teacher voice ready. I am often amazed at how little a beloved of many decades can remember about what I ask him to do. I blame it on the engineer gene that every Haile carries in his DNA - and once something's said - it's said - and once you tell him you like chocolate ... he never forgets. Dee - I will never tell. LOL. Chanting rapid healing prayers for you, Poindextra.

Today I go to the gym. It's strength training day. I think I will bring home dinner though or make tuna salad because we are out of dish washer soap and also out of clean dishes.

Hi Spark friends, I've been happily occupied at the beach this week and have not checked in much. The heat on the shore broke a bit yesterday which made a lovely window to take the kayaks out. Fun to paddle in 'new' waters.

The beach always renews my interest in being outdoors every day and makes it easy to keep moving and doing there. There is no hint of September in the air here, but my mind is easing into that idea of 'new year' preparation. And this week I am sharing the beach with my bf from hs and her husband. We've stayed connected all these years even though we live 2500 miles from one another--and sometimes have been separated by country. It's really a treat to have this time.

Have a good Wednesday all!

Good morning!

Hump day--I feel like I've already worked a full week. Interesting, meaningful work, but not enough hours in the day.

Thanks for the Whole 30 link Jamirblaze, I'll check it out. My trainer and his wife (who also crossfits with us) did the Whole 30 a few months back and said they try to practice it 5 days a week. They seem to be maintaining their weight loss (didn't need to lose much) and they feel better. They are young, late 20s, early 30s.

We all need to find what works best for each of us, right?

I need to get some chores done while DH and granddaughter sleep, then crossfit and work. Granddaughter is scheduled to spend the night with a niece tonight so may be an opportunity to clean up a bit before DD comes Friday night. We will stay in town this weekend, first one all summer.

Hope all have a great day!
