A Different Kind Of Day and Other Trivia

That seems to be my motto for this weekend. I slept in today...and it felt good. After 3 days of workouts at the Y this week today was lazy, very lazy by my standards. I go with a friend (the best way to make yourself go) and we participate in the water classes. Even though I shower after class I could still smell the chlorine when I took a bath today.
Yesterday we took a drumming class, it was tons of fun! After that we did the water aerobics (for seniors) and Candy gave us a good work out both times. Thursday we tried Ai Chi, it's a relaxing water class, we decided we like the faster paced class better.
I got my fit-bit earlier in the week and am enjoying it. I love keeping track of my steps, over 7,000 yesterday with the drumming class. It is amazing how many steps I get in just wandering around my house, I don't stay in one place very long. It also tracks sleep. Today I learned how to reset it, it was not syncing. It's an easy fix and is working correctly now. 
Since I had to run to the drug store today I had to get properly dressed....I blame that for not feeling like working in the bedroom today. I did a teeny bit of sanding. I will finish tomorrow or early in the week. I need to buy some paint rollers before I can prime the walls. As you can tell, I am not in a hurry.
I just didn't know what I felt like doing this afternoon, so I did some laundry, took care of some paperwork, and baked some cookies. Kev went to his brother's this afternoon to watch the football game.  I decided to read in the middle of the afternoon! No radio, no TV, just me and my book. I read a lot more in the summer than I do in winter, odd, eh? In the winter it's a waste of time because I 'should' be doing something. In the summer I'm enjoying the nice weather. 
It's late enough that I can call it a day; time to turn on the TV while I fold laundry and then veg some more.


  1. Linda, girl you taking care of yourself! I need to find a Y. You go girl and yes to rest and read. I need to get off my butt that is too big and read less and exercise more! Looking forward to seeing more of your redos.

  2. I have done the water aerobics and loved it. You have made a grand start to the new year.

  3. I have been reading often this winter as well. I have began keeping a list of books that I read in order to share with others.

  4. Keep talking about your exercise regime - I need to be inspired. You go girl!!

  5. I'm so glad you decided to read during the day! Isn't it fun to do what you want to do when you want to do it? I read more in the winter than in the summer. I'm keeping a list of all the books I read this year because I want to see how many I read. I haven't done that in the past, although I wish I had. I've already read 5 books this month and I plan to read at least 50 by the end of this year. I'd love to know what you're reading. Maybe we could share lists! You inspire me, Linda, by your outlook and your ability to always stay busy. I have been a recluse lately and need to get out more and do more things with others. I may get back into going to the Cancer Wellness center near me. They offer art classes, writing, drumming, etc. I just need a little push out the door...

  6. Reading on a Winter day or laying on the beach, sounds perfect to me:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
