We had some frost this morning, but not bad I don't think. Didn't make it out to the garden after work to survey the damage but its pretty much done. Went to work out on my wii tonight but the balance board batteries are dead. So much for that.....

Love that place!

Worried about my garden- had a heavy freeze last night and since it was still early when I left for work, I don't know what kind of damage it did until I get home.... hope it's ok!

This weekend I've got tomatoes to pick- so that means at least a half day of canning- hoping to find time to fit some additional cardio and some stretching in- in addition to my regular stuff.
Have a great weekend!

I've used my sister's Wii once, but never got around to getting one myself... how do you like it?
Walking in this morning, another walk at lunch, then tonight a football game. Hoping to get into the garden after that (if it's not raining) the broccoli has gone crazy!

Good luck on the interview!
Had rain yesterday, so the garden had to wait until today- with the raised bed and my small feet- I sink up to my calves if the ground is very wet. Can't wait to smell that pasta sauce simmering on the stove!
Have a great weekend and a great holiday everyone!

Nothing wrong with taking a night off now and then. I'm pleased- we got a bit of a nice steady rain yesterday, which will help the garden continue it's abundance. I'm hoping to get another batch of tomatoes picked and make and can some salsa and some pasta sauce tonight.
Totally excited that I'm going to be able to start boot camp up again this year. Last year's cardiac issues kept me out of it... besides a still recovering toe- nothing's gonna stop me this year!

Did a small bit of walking on the dune tops and had a picnic on the beach, but other than that tried to stay safe on the sand with it. The toe is feeling a little bit better- especially in the mornings, but then if I overdo it during the day it aches at night. Still trying to elevate and ice it at night and that seems to help a bit.
Hoping they are actually right about some of this rain that is forecast- we need it!

Well, going to try the toe on the dunes this weekend, so I'll see how that works for me. Yep, it looks like summer is almost over- last night I was outside about 9ish and the air smelled like fall.

Glad you enjoyed it.
The toe has been improving- yesterday I was able to put my running tennis shoes on (2 1/2 sizes bigger than my normal tennis shoes) so that is a positive. Hoping to get out someplace this weekend. I picked and canned green beans already this week- so if I pick and can again today I should be ok leaving the garden for the weekend.

Putting the dunes off for another weekend- trying this weekend if the toe improves. Spent the weekend in the garden and managed to can 13 quarts of green beans (yum)and start thee sauerkraut. I've never been to the Bells Brewery- you'll have to let me know how it is.

That is an amazing part of the country- at least Washington is- I've never been to Vancouver Island.
The toe was a fluke thing- cracked it good on the solid wood leg of the couch- that's what I get for buying quality eh? ~grin~ The swelling is going down and the purple color seems to be getting a little lighter. The wrap helps for sure, so I'm going to continue that for a while longer.

The swelling is going down a bit and the nasty purple color is starting to fade a bit (ok maybe that part is just my imagination). I forgot to tape it up this morning and I am noticing it's a bit more sensitive- so maybe the dunes trip isn't such a good idea... we'll see how it feels in a couple of days.
Hope your vacation was great!

Gardening is my hobby. I have been hoeing weeds and dead heading flowers. We planted late so nothing is ready in the garden yet. We will have tomatoes and cucumbers when we get back from vacation. I have been running and/or biking most everyday. Loving the warm summer weather.

Wow good for you! Going to try to add a little jog to my walk today (if it isn't raining), we'll see how the blood pressure likes that.

No bike rides in the last week. Maybe tonight. The weather looks promising. Crunches tonight. Trying to get back on track with 100 crunches a day! Have 50 done already since I got home from work.

Took me all day to pick and can green beans on Sunday. I'd get a plant picked and then the rain would start up again, then when it stopped I'd go out and pick another plant and it would start raining again... at least they were gentle rains instead of douwnpours!
Hope you got in your bike ride CoolGrandma03!

Iv'e got a couple of pretty big pumpkins out there, plus squash, gourds and hopefully some mini ones too. Hopefully the rain quits long enough for me to go for a bike ride tonight.

Thanks me too... I hear you about the gardening. I love the rain instead of the usual dry summer but I wish it would heat up in the evening just a bit.
Hope your garden is growing ... how are the pumpkins? They must love all this rain!

Cardiologist saw nothing major but I have to wait just under a week for his full report... still having chest pain but my bp has dropped to just slightly elevated. ~shrug~ being kind of cautious on the workouts until I hear for sure.

Well, looks like my exercise will be a bit limited, at least for the next few days. Had a pleasant trip to the ER on Wednesday and go see a cardiologist Monday, would appreciate happy thoughts/prayers headed my direction.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

What a perfect day to skip out early! Hope you had a wonderful time and that you have a great weekend!
Hitting the gym today and I have a pool party tomorrow so lots of volleyball, frisbee, swimming, etc... if we get the rain we're supposed to get today I'm sure I'll have weeds to get after by Sunday too!

Hit the gym after work today and I needed it... totally stressed out and needed to release some of that.
Glad you had a good day!

Ohhh I'd love to grow zucchini... tried it one year and even with just two plants ended up with way too many to eat and since I couldn't can it (and after a while couldn't even give it away) it just isn't worth taking up the space in my garden.
May your pumpkins grow big for the grandkids!

I do mostly big pumpkins for jack o lanterns, but also the little ones for decorations. They are growing great guns out there. I picked 4 zucchinis tonight.

I don't have the space that I'd like to do pumpkins... one of these days! I bet the rain has had those pumpkins growing like crazy... what kind do you plant?
It's just two in my house as well, but I keep my m.i.l., dad and sister in veggies all summer long too. I can according to the size I use, for example the ketchup I do in half-pints like my jams and jellies and fruits, but green beans are mostly in quarts because that's most convenient. There's some stuff I don't do every year either, like sauerkraut and a lot of my jams and sauces. I can can enough in one year to last a couple years, then I rotate what I'm canning.

I used to have a big vegetable garden and can a freeze a lot. Now its much smaller and I don't can anymore. With just the two of us home now it doesn't make sense. I grow pumpkins for the grandkids instead. The garden is great with all the rain we've had.

I love the heat too! I find myself constantly in the garden in the summer and then when the harvest starts rolling in, all the canning I do and carrying those full jars into where I store them for sure burns some calories. I've been using the sauna at my gym after my workouts and then when I leave it almost feels cool outside (since the sauna is generally in the 140's).

I love the heat and glad summer is finally here! I have been getting up 15 minutes early each morning and doing 15 minutes of core strength exercises before I go to work. Then in the evening, gardening (my favorite hobby in the summer) or biking or running.

How are you managing to fit fitness into your summer schedule?
Are you letting the heat get to you or are you still managing to get some exercise in?
