New Week, New Routine....

Currently Reading:  Finished reading Bronwyn Green's Just Right yesterday, and LOVED it!  Definite Recommended Read!!!  Next up:  Anny Cook's Phantom's Rest:)

Did I mention the kids are back in school?

Last week, after dropping the youngling at school, I came home and got on the computer.  The spouse slept until around 11am, then we'd talk about what we were planning to do the rest of the day.

On Friday, a friend mentioned she'd begun walking 5 miles a day and was losing weight.  I got the bright idea to revive jump start my own walking program and instead of coming home today, went to the park.  One lap=.8 miles (I've checked this with my trusty pedometer), so 5 laps equal 4 miles.  Unfortunately, my left foot (the one with the slight arthritis) gave out after four laps.  I refuse to be in pain just to get that extra eight tenths of a mile in.  Maybe tomorrow?

After the SU wakes up, we're initiating Operation Clean House.  He's got the 'urge to purge' and finally take some of our stuff to Good Will.  I've only been wanting this for the past two years; it's taken him this long to finally help me!

We took CK back to Purdue and moved him into his new apartment; I'll post pictures tomorrow.  And had an excellent meal with friends I've not seen in a while.  Did I take pics while I was there?  No...baaaad Molly!  But the gentleman who has encouraged me in my writing all these years was thrilled to find out my work is on Kindle, and that AU will also be out this fall on Kindle:)

Now, back to edits and laundry before the SU wakes up!

Oh, Kenzie blogged again yesterday!  Click here to see how she deals with the summer heat and what is needed in order for words to flow:)

I wanted to start walking today, but it's pouring out! I have a great stroller for the baby to endure my long walks. I don't blame you pain is not worth the extra .8 mile.

I'm just finishing Bron's Maggie's Mates and plan on reading Just Right next. Glad it's a recommended read.

Sounds like a fun weekend. Looking forward to the pics.

The kids are in school already? Isn't that very early?

I wish you were closer. I'd walk with you. It's not safe here alone.

Ooh, I wanna read Maggie's Mates! I need to catch up on everyone's back list (pout).

Barb, these cool mornings are PERFECT walking weather! No more poking my head out of the house at 8am into soupy air....chilly for 1st lap, and then the body starts to warm up:)
