Good Evening, FS Warriors! It's been a fairly lazy day for me today. Had to go get a haircut at 9:00. Been going through old boxes of stuff and organizing my half-finished den. Had a couple sausage, egg and cheese McMuffins for brunch, and a tenderloin and salad for supper. I am not exactly the poster child for FS, but it is what it is.

Yesterday, I was pulling fence posts and taking down fence, and then weed eating. Then I went over to the church to help empty out a storage room for contractors who are putting in another bathroom in parts of the room. Once I got back and finished my studies, it was about midnight. I just didn't have a lot of get up and go today. Weather was lousy anyway. Sometimes I think the weather changes so I can get some rest. :)

Here's hoping everyone is having a great week. Toodles!

Good Evening, FS Warriors! Yay, I am done pouring concrete! We actually finished up about 2 o'clock, including cleaning up the concrete mixer, wheelbarrow and all the tools. However, I have to admit, it made me hungry. DW fixed each of us up two burgers, which I ate. Later I ate some leftover Monicals Pizza, and then made two grilled cheese sandwiches for supper. Yeah, I know - Big Fail! I think I'm going to start training Monday. Really.

I had loaned my bike (bicycle) to a friend who needed it to get around. He returned it last week, and I have been out on it for a couple short rides. It felt good. Now that I'm done pouring the concrete, I can start using the treadmill again without worrying too much about dust. I don't want to get flabby, you know - or flabbier. :) Anyway, I've got to start moving some of this excess muscle that seems to have settled around my abdomen.

It was pretty cool here today. It didn't get any higher than the low 50's. Normally, I would be OK with that, considering it is Spring. However, it has been in the 70's and I have gotten a little spoiled. I'm not ready to start pounding the pavement yet anyway. I am going to be content running on the treadmill for a while. I would still like to take on a ½ marathon. Maybe it's a crazy idea. Well, heck yeah, that makes it right up my alley! Well, anyway, I've got to go hit the books. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Toodles!

Good Evening, FS Warriors! Well, I began the day with a berry, banana, and rolled oats smoothie. I think I like these so much because they stay with me for so long; they carry me well past my normal lunch time. I'm not so in love with the vegetable smoothies; I think I am going to invest in a juicer. I don't care so much for the consistency of the veggie smoothies, but I think I would be OK with the juice. So, anyway, I didn't get a lot done today.

Another morning of worship practice. I have a guy in my worship team that is half deaf, so I bought some components and tapped into the church monitors, and ran the signal through a pocket amplifier to a headset so he could hear us and the music when he sings. He's a good singer, but not so great when he doesn't hear us or the music. He's happy now and so are we.

We went out to Monicals Pizza for supper. DW was too tired to cook after a hard afternoon of shopping. :) I am beginning to feel like I take two steps back on my diet for every one step forward. At least, we didn't finish the pizza this time; but we brought it home. It will be calling to me in a little while, I am sure. :)

Well, anyway, I have a helper coming over tomorrow. We will be pouring concrete tomorrow. I figure best case scenario is 8 to 10 hours, and then I will have to finish it off two or three hours after we are done pouring. I am going to try and get my studies done early so I get a good nights sleep. 6:00 AM will feel pretty early if I don't. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Toodles!

Good morning, FS Warriors! I just got back from worship practice. Yesterday was intense! The night before, I had worked on course assignments until 1:30 AM and didn't get to bed until 2:00. Woke up yesterday morning at 4:30, couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up at about 5:15. Read for 3 more hours. DW and I got outside and planted a Blue Spruce tree, a couple of Snow on the Mountain plants, a hydrangea, some pampas grass and a bunch of annuals. Then we began mowing and trimming. By the time 4 o'clock rolled around, she was too tired to cook, but I wasn't too tired to eat, so we headed to Dairy Queen. I had the new chicken bruschetta, and yep, I ate the French fries, and even had a blizzard. I know that I shouldn't have, but we never even paused for lunch.

I still had homework that kept me up until past midnight. Of course, if I hadn't spent so much time working outside, I would have been done earlier, but I have no regrets - except that I didn't get out of bed until 8:00 this morning. I found that my day starts way too late if I sleep until 8:00. So, this is retirement, huh? I went to Tractor Supply and bought a bunch of cattle panels (I don't have cattle), to replace the wire fencing I have on the north side of the property. The dogs have been getting out. They don't go anywhere; they just want to see what's going on when I'm working on the other side of the school. The wire fencing just isn't rugged enough to withstand weed eating, or the dogs trying to make small holes bigger. So, I think I will be tearing down old fence and putting up new. I've only got to do about 150 foot; the other is tall chain link that was the original fence for the ball field of the school. With all of the rain we have had, the grass got almost a foot high in places in just 4 days. Thank goodness for the tractor and the rear mower deck that I could raise and make multiple passes.

Anyway, I plan to be busy today. BTW, this morning I made a breakfast smoothie and substituted Honey Bunches of Oats cereal for the rolled oats. That way, I eliminated the sugar and the vanilla extract. Used frozen berries and a banana. It was delicious. I guess it's not for the pure nutritionalist, but worked for me. Wishing you all a great day; Toodles!

11 May 2016

Good Morning, FS Warriors! I woke up about 4:45 this morning, and lay there wide awake, so I decided to get up about 5:30 and do some of my required course readings. Read for 3 hours, and came out to the kitchen and made myself a breakfast smoothie. I am getting so good at those things, and they taste so good, I feel like I ought to have a cigarette or something afterwards. I'm just kidding. Don't get all excited. I don't smoke.

I've got about another hour of reading to do, and then I am going to wake up DW and we will plant all of those flowers, trees and bushes I bought her for Mothers Day. It has rained off and on here for the past three days, but today is supposed to be pretty decent. We really only had a few small showers here and there yesterday, so things will be pretty dry today. The fog has been thick all morning and is just now lifting. Once I am done with the planting and mowing - hopefully by 5 or so, I have quite a few course assignments to get done. For some reason, there is a big course load due on Wednesdays, and then it gets a little lighter the rest of the week.

I've been doing pretty well as far as the diet goes. I haven't done any more evening smoothies; I am sure that that last one was good for me, but it was a bit tough to take, being so thick and green. Kind of reminded me of baby food peas with little orange sparkles in it. I think if I am going to do a vegetable drink, I want it to be more like a juice and not a shake.

Well, I don't want you to use up all your day reading my rhetoric. Thanks for dropping in. Have a great day! Toodles!
