Five For Friday


It’s that time of week once again where I have to poke the squirrel that runs on the wheel that spins the generator that powers up my brain.  Hopefully that damn thing hasn’t died.

1.We had some icing last night.  The temps dipped (that happens from time to time in this neck of the Hundred Acre Wood during this time of year) and the rain that fell iced up.  That made things a bit slippery outside and froze up my bird bath.  My peas seem to have survived it tho.

2. I take my ride in for an oil change later today but I suspect something else may be wrong with it.  I wonder how much this trip will set me back.

3. At least the sun is out this morning and the skies are blue.  It will warm up soon enough, all the ice will melt and everything will dry up.  Life is good.

4. It’s been a solid week of using my Fitbit which actually has keep me motivated with getting in my 10,000 steps per day.  I’m still sore from all this walking which goes to show just how far I let myself go.  I know it will pass but “Ouch!” for now.

5. I don’t have a lot of work to do today.  I think I’ll sign up for some on-line training to keep me busy.  Not having anything to do makes for a long workday.

OK, there ya have it.  Feel free to comment and/or wave a healthy “Howdy Ho!” when you pass thru.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. Howdy Ho! I try to get at least six thousand steps a day but usually reach about ten, then I don’t feel do bad. But yes to the ouch! Depending on what shoes I’m wearing, it can definitely hurt.

      1. Depends on where you live and how active you are, I walk quite a bit. But if I were living in Long Island or outside New York city proper you’d need a car or take the bus because it is very suburban.

  2. My whole personal commitment for the day is to toss old food from the fridge and take the trash out. I think I’ll go back to bed for a while or play a card game on the computer instead. Happy Friday and have a good weekend Jim. ~~dru~~
    ps, I doubt I take a thousand steps a day, so you are way ahead of me. Good Luck to your peas.
