Couldn’t sleep last night, woke up at 1-ish, last time I looked at clock it was 3:11. I made a cup of camomile tea, read a book, turned on massage unit for my aching leg, I hate it when I wake up like that. Then the batteries died on the remote and bed was in sitting up position. Looked vainly for batteries, no gotta none. Moved to other side of bed and went to sleep. Woke up at 7:15, coffee, feed sheep, let ewes and dogs out. AND Cooper bred Dessa, the barren concubine ewe! Due February 15, 2023, IF she lambs, I take back all my frustrations at her. Go Cooper!

Our high today will be about 50°F, overnight low close to freezing. Mother nature is warning us.


You sound like my sister-in-law. Goes out EVERY SINGLE morning, no matter the weather for a 6 mile walk or 9 mile run, then gets ready for work. Up and out by 5 AM, back by 7.


I suspect most any shoe @Poka_Doodle could/would buy is FAR superior to what was available when you were her age ;) Glad she's aware of what she needs to do so she can still walk in 50 years.
EVERY MORNING out by 5 AM is pretty impressive. It's a good day here if I am out before 8 AM to run, but I try and work it into my schedule and run 6 days a week.
But I certainly am trying to hold my body together, obviously we won't know how successful I really have been for a few years.

Rain, shine, snow, daylight or dark (time of year dependant of course), -20°F or 95°F, makes no difference

Me? I hang out in the house until the temp or weather improves or at least until it is light before I walk down to feed the chickens and alpacas.

But I certainly am trying to hold my body together, obviously we won't know how successful I really have been for a few years.
I hope you are doing it right because there are no "do overs" ;)
But the fact that you are thinking about it bodes well for your future.

2nd cup on its way in. I slept ok last night-it was cold, so having blankets to snuggle down in was wonderful. It's 50 degrees, going up to 70. I like the fall but when it happens in a 2 day period of time, I feel rather rushed to get my jeans and flannels out of storage. So I guess that's on the agenda for the day.

Today is chicken coop cleaning and weed pulling day. Just thinking about it is giving me the heebeejeebees. Earwigs seem to love lurking under the feeders and in the hay-so many of them! :eek: DS3 will be lending the assist, so I may send him in to stomp on the little creepers before we rake the pen and put down fresh hay. The chickens should be eating those, but I guess they're creeped out by them too.
Edith has become quite the leader of the flock, maybe only in her own mind, because the white Cochins are twice her size and don't wish to do her bidding. Poor Edith with her big hair do.

Heading up to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun next weekend for DH's business conferences. I wind up at so many casinos throughout the year, and I don't gamble, ever. I'm thinking I'l spend some time enjoying the foliage change, and hiking around in the woods there. I'm hoping for good weather, But I guess I'll bring a good book with me just in case.
The following week is DD's birthday, then we leave for Orlando for my EMS World conference and CME extravaganza. I hope there will be fun scenarios that I can fully participate in-last time I went I was a week out from emergency gall bladder surgery and couldn't do any lifting or running. I hope there's no hurricanes! (although TD 9 looks suspicious)
We're staying extra days in Universal because I've never been, and I'm dying to see Harry Potter world. (you caught me-I'm a dork!)
Well, time to wake up the kid to see about the chicken coops, he'll be so pleased. Of course he'll be in a fairly good mood since the Mets won last night. :weee

I'm rooting for Cooper and Dessa!!

51 out and 64 in this morning. Left windows up a little....maybe a little too much!! Brrrrrr !!😱🥱

Coffee just finished, so hot, fresh and welcome. I'm thinking maybe breakfast soon. Then chores.

Project for today is to add a couple posts and tighten a fence at a paddock for containment of the 3 goats I'm picking up tomorrow. Add hay, water tub and be ready to put them in after the drive. It will make life easier on me to be done today. 😄. Has shelter and opens into larger pasture...adding a couple more in early Oct, so this may be their winter home. 🤔

Chris came over yesterday and put up the Red River panels around the house so Cooper can't bash any more of the underskirting. He put up a grab bar at the shower, took the bathroom door off and I took the door stop trim off. Now the walker will go through the bathroom door. He rehung a 16' gate that dragged so bad that I could barely open it. He helped me put together my shelf tower in the closet and really liked my idea. He and his family live in a single wide mobile home with those tacky wire racks for hanging clothes. He said he's going to build out his closets like mine. I need to cut and paint 2 more shelves and another coat of paint on the tower, then it will be ready for use. I really want that completed before surgery Tuesday. Going to son's house this morning to get more stuff. Need to go to Lufkin for last minute things. I've been clearing out trails for the walker, moving obstacles and trying to be prepared. Eh. We'll see how well I did.

The tower and clothes poles face each other with just enough room to close door.
