Cool! We are gone so long in a day that I never use my crock pot. I used to use it to cook beans to freeze, but now I have my Instant Pot I use that instead.

Had a lovely birthday party for my son-in-law yesterday. My daughter comes home from her month long intensive teaching course at the Circle Shala today, so we just had Danny & Lucas.Al did chicken tacos on the grill & I had beans left over. Danny loves pie so I made him a blueberry pie instead of a cake.

We have a very, very nice day. How are things in your neck of the woods?

I left yesterday to head out on my (usually) Friday errands and found the end of my road littered with fireworks debris.I picked it all up and hauled it off. WHY, if you are going to make a mess, can't you clean it up after? Especially on a public road?

Do you know, I've just realized my social anxiety extends to these chat rooms. I mean, here i just blather on in case someone wants to chat, hoping they know they are welcome to do so. But in some forums everyone mentions everyone else's post and I feel my guts start to tighten and I worry I'll forget someone and that will make them feel bad...

PLEASE feel free to just come in and jot down anything. If no one answers, that's okay! If everyone answers, that's okay, too! You got something on your mind? We are here to support each other!

Have an amazing day!

So I've kind of started doing GRIT. I was at the gym early and it was the Cardio. Lots of modifications by I haven't died yet. Next week they are doing strength and I'm not sure how that will go with a wonky shoulder and a tricky ankle. We'll see.

I had such an amazing time at the Yoga Festival, that was really more of a retreat (they are, in fact, changing the name to Retreat next year!) and it's hard to come home. I had brought bean ans sweet potato burritos (or wraps, if you prefer) and spinach dip and flat bread, my homemade granola, and some oat bars. We DID eat the burritos, but not at the campsite as I envisioned. We at them under the back flap of the car in the parking lot at the lodge just before the thunderstorm broke out! After that most meals were taken at the Lodge. I am grateful that they had so many healthy choices! Their Ozark Greens salad with house-made blackberry dressing was amazing, as was the strudel made from local mushrooms!

I won't even mention the blackberry cobbler, okay? Okay!

I'm okay, Soxy. We went from freezing our butts off to sweating our skin off, but that's Missouri for you! The Sox are battling the Yankees for first in the division. ALWAYS those D@)(*%& Yankees! My eating has been a little outta control and I'm working hard to get that under control. Dropping all that dairy has kinda freaked my body out. Or maybe it's the weather. Who can say? Well, three minutes until I am on the clock so I'll catch y'all later!

The Red Bud (or Judas Tree) at the end of the platform in my meditation garden has sprinkled its red buds all over the platform. it's so pretty! I lost all but 2 of my lavender to the cold snap and I'm not sure how many of my Russian Sage are left.

I made frozen raviolis tonight and wished I had fresh basil. C'mon spring! You can do it!

I miss seeing the bumble bees in my yard near my pepper tree. My nephew is enjoying them, I am sure.

Nephew was opening the gate to take out the trash the other day, and a hoard of military like police came charging down my driveway with their rifles telling him to get back indoors. They were chasing a murder suspect who ended up holing himself in a house only two blocks down from my house.

I am on holiday at my sister's house. I don't mind missing that sort of fun. Sheesh!

I'm so happy to see so many honey bees in my yard right now! It's been too wet to mow and we have a, er, mountain meadow thing going on in our yard right now so the bees are very happy. I also got some pansies for Fiona (Pansies for heart's ease) and some heather because she wanted to be a Highland collie SO MUCH! The bees are loving those as well.

The meeting went well. Drove to Rolla to see Mom. Got back in time for the dinner before the rains hit. The dinner went well and I can now brush the dust of this person's negativity off my hands and out of my area and move forward !

Not much on the books for today. Clean, cook, prep for work. I've got Monday off for Patriot's Day! Woot! Woot!

Crazy day today. I'm heading into work after the gym because someone that WASN'T going to come today IS coming today and I need to discuss some upcoming changes. Sigh. So much for my 4 day weekend!

And THEN there's a going away 'party' for the thorn-in-my-side who is leaving us. As the lead in our division I feel I should go but I'm not sure how long I'll stay. Sigh. Obligations!

Good to know you know where to report it! My pal got almost half his home value stolen from his attorney and real estate outfit.

Today, I have made very simple meals. Microwaveable Steele cut oats for breakfast, and a BLT for lunch.

I think I will order a rotisserie chicken for dinner.

We almost have all the fall-out from Mom's reverse mortgage taken care of. The mortgage specialist at State Farm said SOME people, especially in the early days of these mortgages did well, but the group my mom found is horrific and, trust me, the Attorney General of Missouri will have my opinion of their practices!

Tomorrow is my favorite race and it's supposed to be a nice day! With this wound and how icky the antibiotics make me feel I'm not exactly expecting a PR, but it's still an amazing run. I'll be getting my Kicks on Route 66!!!

I feel ya, Becca on getting used to cold again after being warm.

Have a great day everyone!

We've got a couple note inches of snow and it is still snowing. Sis took petey out for his morning constitutional thank goodness. I can't get used to the cold again when I was running around in shirt sleeves the other day!

Hope everyone enjoys their day! I plan on doing some recumbent bike and reading in bed.

First race of the season. I am still not feeling 100% after being sick all last week. I tried to lift yesterday but couldn't even manage the entire hour of Body Pump. Even with virtually no weight on my bar. My hope for this run? Don't Die!

And the rain moved in earlier than expected. My poor pups are terrified of thunder so we all had a restless night.

I decided to switch up my gym time and go during the day : Body Pump and Sprint! Have a great day, everyone.

I had a masseuse in cali who also did adjustments on my shoulder. He got rid of pain I'd had for ten years!

I can't wait to get out there again. If you find someone who's talented, it is wonderful. Not everyone is good at what they do.

I got my car down out of the barn, but there was more slipping & sliding than I like and the actual driveway is a tenth of a mile downhill. I can't drive that without using brakes and brakes + ice = skid...so home for now...at least until it warms up a bit.

Well, I skipped the gym because of the ice. The roads in town are getting salted already, says a friend, but the 2 lane that gets me from my lovely dirt road to town is 2 miles of curves and cants toward the river and the ice is supposed to get worse before it gets better. I have a lot that I can do at home & will pull out a workout in a bit...but I did want to do my RPM this morning.

Oooh. I've only ever had one massage and it was after a run and was very short, but I liked it!
If Congress would decide it's going to fund the government I want to see if the Chiropractor can help with my shoulder. My daughter gets massages and adjustments and it's made a world of difference in her life.

I finally started exercising again. Time to build endurance. I will then treat myself to a massage.

Taking it easy after a very active gym week. My muscles are groaning every time I move.

I feel kind of guilty thinking "Ugh! FINALLY it's Friday." It's not very mindful, after all. Or maybe it is! I will get out and pump some iron; I will see my Mom; I will do some grocery shopping to set me up for another healthy week; I will soak up the sun!I will glory in the day, even if it is only 20 degrees F!

Yea! One day off (used it to advantage to go to the gym!)
Now we have to sweat another possibility of a shut down in a few weeks.
It's been like this for so long...Ah well. Service to country has its down sides and its upsides as well. As in all things, we take the bad with the good.

I try to live mindfully, but when you're at your desk with long underwear, jeans, three shirts a jacket, fingerless gloves and a blanket over your lap it's hard not to dream of daffodils!

glad you got some blankets. We were supposed to get two inches, but it is more than that. It's a very tiny snowflake that is lightly coming down but it adds up!

Where in California, BeccaBoo? I am from San Diego and now looking at the snow-covered Ozarks in Missouri.

We were going to get possibly eight inches of snow preceded by 2 inches of ice!

We got just a glaze of ice and only two inches of snow. It is 17 degrees now which I consider pretty warm!

I lived in Cali for decades and had "thin blood"--unable to tolerate the cold, but my blood is thicker now!

We were supposed to get a light dusting of snow moving quickly through. Um, Looking now like it's set to stick around most of the day. This winter has been tough already with much more to come. I think it's particularly tricky after so many warmer winters.

Back to the grind! Lots to do, though at the beginning of the year, though for us the crunch usually comes in September / October with the beginning of the fiscal year.

Now I just have to worry about a government shut down! Life on the edge.

Well, January 6th is here so my Christmas tree is coming down. I went out to my mom's and took down her little tree yesterday. She said she'll miss lookng at it so I'm trying to find some sort of light-up Valentine's Day decoration emoticon

I go back to work on Monday, and my new gym schedule starts this week, so this weekend will be prepping foods and clothes and getting my head back into THAT game!

I am working on staying more organized, or at least more on top of things this year. Wish me luck!
