Good evening everyone! Hope you all had a great day. The high here in Kansas was only 60 degrees. By Monday it's supposed to be 90. We had a little more rain today, which was much needed. We'll soon be back at wheat harvest when it warms up again.
Today I started Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I'm thinking it will be good for me. It was a long 20 minutes. Maybe it will be a good jump start to my continued weight loss.

Good afternoon team

How are things going with everyone? I see a lot of you are still harvesting, and I know thats a lot of work. Its planting time up here, but I need some sun, and warmer nights its still about 3*C at night and some people still have there fires going. If I plant my flowers now, I may lose them all to frost.

Have a great day everyone!

Had a storm move through and dump an inch of much needed rain. Brought wheat harvest to a temporary halt until everything dries out. Probably next week.

Just letting you all know that I having a bit of computer trouble at the moment, it occassionally stalls on me. Getting in what I can.

Cathy - The fact that you are moving and on your feet all day is a form of exercise. You would be doing alot of steps.

Still busy harvesting wheat. It's hard to find time to exercise. Yesterday I only had 30 minutes working in the garden. I'll exercise inside this afternoon before I have to take supper to the field. I'll maybe work in the garden this evening if I have a chance.

Good Morning!

Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day. We grilled and had some friends over. Darling husband had the weekend off, so we got to spend some family time together; he usally works 7 days aweek 12 hours a day. So it was nice.

Sorry that I have not been around lately. Trying to find away to stay on track now that the kids are home for the summer. Learning to take time for me and to put me first. I always put others before me.

Have a Great Day!

Had a good cookout here at my house for Memorial Day. I managed to keep within my calorie range and have a good meal. I bypassed the baked beans, but had 1/2 a hamburger w/ lettuce and tomato and no bun, bean, corn avocado salad and fruit salad. Can't forget a small scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. I invited my parents and my mother-in-law to eat with us, too. A very enjoyable meal. Hope everyone else is having a good day. We'll be back at harvesting wheat very soon.

Good afternoon all,
The sun is shinning here on the Atlantic coast, but it still chilly but thats Spring over here for us. My walk got skipped again this morning, as I was doing my running around, my boss changed the schedule, and I needed to start doing my running around today and I will have to finish it tomorrow before I go in. My days off have been pushed later into the week, today I did the running around that I need the car for, and tomorrow its just a trip to the laundry mat, so I can walk up there tomorrow while I do the wash and then I can pin it out then walk more hopeful.

Other then that life has been pretty calm up here, I am getting ready to plant my flower pots for my step, and I baked 6 banana loafs,3 dozen chocolate chip flaxseed cookies 1 pecan pie and tossed them all in the freezer. As I know I am going to have a lot of family coming through in July, going to my grandfather's I want to have some goodies to sent up incase I can't get the time off work.

Cathy that is alot of cooking. It seems your exercise routine is set for a couple of weeks, being outside and working. How many horse pull the chuck wagon emoticon

Debby I agree with you some sunshine would be great right now. It is a bit cloudy today for us. Also would not look forward to 100 deg heat. But that is the way with seasons.

Spring and Autumn seem similar, it is just Spring has more sunny and warmer days where as Autumn has more cloudy and cooler days. Somewhere in the middle we both enjoy great days.

Wheat harvest is officially started at our house. The wheat is dry so we are off and running. No rest for me. Tomorrow I will start my chuck wagon duties.

CPat, I'm not ready for 100 degree weather, but I would like a little warmth. Woke up to about 1/2 inch of snow on the ground this morning. It's mostly melted, but I would like some summer. At least some sunshine!

We're rapidly moving into summer here in Kansas. Supposed to be near 100 degrees today. I've been crazy busy this week. This week-with help-I made close to 90 bierocks and about 130 pizza pockets. This is to feed my wheat harvest crew! I'm still planning on fixing beef and chicken enchiladas and meatloaf. Harvest is right around the corner. I've also been spending time cleaning rye out of the wheat fields-quite a bit of walking and pulling- and working in my garden. Looks like all my exercise has been outside. Yesterday I had to help catch some of our cattle-walk them home from their pastures. Probably walked a few miles at least. Cardio is never a problem this time of year!

Hi everyone,

Well today was wood day. It is Autumn here in Australia and the wood was delivered. We usually get a few ton delivered to start the pile and add to it ourselves to get through the winter. So it was 'stack the wood' day. Great fun, especially knowing that there will be a nice wood fire burning through winter.

Enjoy the day

We had a bit of a frosty morning, so the day should be sunny even if a little chilly. Typical Autumn weather. It is Sunday here and as much as I would love to be outside I need to catch up with some office work, and then I need to organise my office, so that I can find the work I need to work on.

Enjoy your day.

We're having the opposite problem. It's over 90 degrees again today. I'm having to water my garden, too, since we haven't been getting rain. Don't think it will be freezing here any time soon.

Goodmorning everyone, sorry I didn't get around to replying last night, yesterday just went so fast.

Debbi - glad you had a beautiful day. I am in NE Country Victoria and although some places higher up get snow we live below the snow line and don't get any. The snow fields are about 2hrs drive from here. Where is your here?

Roxanne - looking forward to you catching up with us, you have been missed.

Today will be another busy day, which is good because when you are busy the day goes faster, although I have been a bit slack with the recording. Need to fine tune my time.

Enjoy the day emoticon

Busy day. One son graduated from college today and another graduates from high school an hour from now. Just taking a little breather. Went to a graduation party in between the two. So far, so good. Couldn't eat anything at the party because of my gluten allergy. Still have two more parties after graduation.

I pulled weeds from my veggie garden. Picked lettuce, spinach, radishes & green onions. Watered some roses that I had planted. Trimmed some bushes. Went on 4-wheeler and checked our cattle. Got things ready to do some mowing today.

How are you doing?

The party went very well. We had about 75 people show up and everyone had fun, including me. I was glad we didn't run out of food. There weren't many leftovers, though. It's a relief to be done. Now I can relax and enjoy graduation next Saturday, maybe hit a few parties for other grads.

Thank you all for the good wishes. I almost have my house ready for the part tomorrow. Graduation isn't until next Saturday, but will almost be an anticlimax after all the work for the party! My house looks better than it has for a long time. Wish it could stay that way, but know it won't. I'll enjoy it for now. With 4 kids, nothing stays clean for long.

I'm here, but in the middle of a very busy time. So my checking in will be sporadic for the next couple of weeks.

Hi everyone, a quick hello before I settle for the night.

Julia - the weather has been great here lately, cold frosty mornings but beautiful days.

Cathy - wishing you all a great graduation day.

Roxanne - its always great to get together with family members and do some catch up

Debby - just visited you page, 22 weeks of maintenance, what an achievement. Looking forward to when I get there.

Kansasrose - I love our library, the people there are very obliging. Our library has just had an amazing face lift. Books had to be moved to another shop in town, while they demolished the old library - floor boards rotten and several small rooms not good - they did a great job, we have all the mod cons, meeting room, kitchen, courtyard, computers, kids area, sitting area to read the papers and have coffee, you name it.

Have a great weekend - its Friday night here. emoticon oopps emoticon
