On the farm

We picked up#1 from swim camp on Thursday. Since we were only about 3 hours away from j's sisters, we asked if we could come for a visit. This was a picture of the beautiful sunset on Saturday night!

Concession stands

It's nice to see that some things don't change. 27 years after going to Day camp, the choices are still the same!

Wheat and sugar free

I have been struggling to lose some pounds since we got back from HK. When we got Piper, I read that the key to a happy dog is exercise. So, I started on my walking journey. They dog and I average around 3.5 miles a day - sometimes doing upwards of 5. I have felt my legs getting stronger, and also my endurance increase. But I didn't feel like I was fitting into my pants better. So, last Sunday, I decided to go cold turkey on sugar and wheat. I have done really well eating all natural foods and such. One of the side effects that I have seen from this is, some of the aches and pains that I was having every morning have disappeared. I was having a lot of issues with my achilles and my IT band. As of today - I am really 4 days pain free from it. I don't know if I am completely intolerant to gluten or wheat, but maybe there is something to this.

Piper went to doggy day care today. This is probably the best money I spend her. She can't even hold her head up to look at us.

Tornado warnings

This is how we roll for tornados. In the closet under the stairs for a bit.

Is it time to get a storm shelter put in the floor if the garage or one in te back yard?


Another tired one!
