Working Indoors, Dreaming of being Outdoors

A day at home.  Nice.  If you read my blogs you know that’s not a frequent occurrence for me.  So I enjoy every minute.  Of course every time I get home there are the usual tasks.  Laundry.  Lots of Laundry.

No, I don’t mind walking 2miles like this woman to hang my clothes….

when_to_wash_it_guide_476x2-gif-20151203121129.gif~q75,dx720y432u1r1gg,c--I’m sure it was worth it.

I actually don’t mind doing laundry – I just hate putting it away.
I actually don’t mind grocery shopping – I just hate putting groceries away.
Do you see a pattern here?



I am SO ready to be able to walk without pain.  3 months and its as bad as it was in June.   Next week I’ll be seeing a specialist.  Can’t wait.  In the meantime, let’s have fun with the treadmill.

Everyone wants to look good when working out, but, Seriously?

heelsThat hurts just looking at those heels.
When you are only “half-heartedly” into the workout.
(Thanks for this one, Sandy)



Some days I feel like I posed for this picture:



I have to give cats equal time:


I know exactly how she feels….


I like it when exercise equipment has multiple uses:




Thats enough treadmill workouts for one day, don’t you think?


Just like all the above, keep moving one foot in front of the other,








Rockin’ and Rollin’ Down the Road

Our travels on Monday consisted of a 5-1/2 hour trip to Boulder Colorado. The trip was fine – but how would I know – I slept most of it. Some interesting sights I did see was this:


Please….there is no way that can be comfortable – unless of course you have very itchy, stinky feet.  <As a side note, I saw another person doing the same thing on the way home.  Maybe I need to try it…>


Then, as with every single road in America, we hit a lot of construction. At first we weren’t sure what was wrong with this driver who was going about 40 mph in a 65 mph zone.


Then we realized it must be….     ”cone anxiety” or maybe even “conephobia”.


We arrived at Red Rocks Amphitheater – which is truly amazing – and got a great parking space. Could that be because we were 2-1/2 hours early before the gate even opened??

Anyway, we had no forethought for food and drinks, so while others partied hard at tail gate get-togethers, we… guessed it…….slept.

When the gate opened at 6 (concert at 7:30), we climbed up the side of the cliff  walked up the steep trail to the seats.


And what great seats we had!


We had an hour and a half to people-watch. I think some people got lost and ended up here. Like the one who was headed for Woodstock:



Or Where’s the beach?



Or “isn’t this the rodeo?” (sorry it was blurry, she was in a hurry for the barrell racing)



But truly the  most icky, amazing, shocking   picture-with the highest ewww-factor:


And of course he was sitting next to ME!  Just makin’ himself at home.


Some famous people:  Mr. and Mrs. Cabela:



Finally – Jackson Browne:

And here is a little for you to listen to:


The concert was just awesome. Between the music, the balmy, breezy weather and the outdoor scenery, it was definitely the best ever.



Today, before we headed back to Wyoming, I went to an appointment with a specialist. An endocrinologist for my ever-erratic thyroid. It truly has been out of control for about 2 years. I’ve been fighting the weight, and the constant exhaustion for way too long. The Dr. looked over my records, discussed things with me and told me we are going to get this under control. YAY Finally!


Now we are on our way home to all the critters. Hope your week has started out as good as mine.


Keep moving… one step at a time,
