August Log, Blog and Salad Challenge - Day 15

Sunday's blog

"...when up on the roof there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter..."
The roofers make more noise than 8 reindeer. They started last Tuesday, and have been here at 7 AM every day but the weekend. They couldn't work complete days twice because of rain. What a job. They plan to be done tomorrow.
Then the gutter crew will be here installing seamless gutters with screens. There are mature trees towering over the house that fill the gutters with leaves and plug the downspouts every Fall. The leaf blowers that the gutter-cleaning people use do not unplug the downspouts. The rain splashes up and over the sides of the gutters when we have a downpour.
For any of you that have screens on your gutters, do you have any problem with debris getting through? How much maintenance is required each year?

Grandma is laying on the couch.
Young grandson asks, "What's the matter, Gramma?"
Gramma replies, "Oh, nothing. I'm just out of sorts today."
Grandson ponders this, then says, "I'd give you some of my Sorts if I knew what they were."

My weekend went fairly well, but that old nemesis Procrastination got hold of me on Sunday when it came to posting on Spark. I procrastinated until I was too tired to do the usual postings. I finally gave it up after falling asleep over the computer a few times. Better late than never, so here is Sunday's blog.

Some of the things we track for the Challenge every day are:
Log nutrition
Log fitness
Give three smilies on spark pages
Complete a post with all this info on the Challenge thread
We chose 3 things we wanted to work on this month.

I had slacked on logging, even though I know it is key to staying on track. The Challenge is good for me.

    I always find challenges helpful for me. I procrastinated with my workout and didn't get any in yesterday!

    Hi Annie, I know exactly how you feel, We all go through that once in awhile, sometimes a little break is a good thing, when you come back you feel more refreshed and ready to go! I live in an Apt now, because hubby hated having to deal with all that stuff, mowing, shoveling etc, we are getting too old for all that lol lol! (or so he says ) emoticon
