This morning I woke up with a very foggy-minded and bleary-eyed. For some reason, I have not sleep well all week so every day I am more tired than the day before. However, in spite of dragging through each day, there was much that was good about this week.
The temperatures this week have been in the 60’s (F), which is awesome. It feels like autumn, which is one of my favorite seasons. I love jeans and sweatshirt weather! Each day we had periods of blue sky with big fluffy white clouds alternating with skies that were filled with dramatic dark clouds. Sometimes it rained. I loved dramatic clouds.
EJ has very generously shared his laptop with me while my has been in the repair shop. Without his computer, I would not have survived the last two weeks. However, I have really missed my own computer. I missed my bookmarks, and my settings, and my programs, and my large monitor. This morning the computer shop called to tell me that my computer was fixed and ready. I wasn’t sure we had time to pick it up today, but EJ said we did so off we went. Yay!
When the computer guy brought my precious laptop to me, he said, “Oh, yeah, this is the laptop that needed a little bit of everything fixed.” They replaced the fan, the keyboard, and my profile files which, apparently, were corrupted. I lost some of my settings so I have to go back and fix them the way I want, which is a pain. I lost some of my passwords. That could be interesting. However, my computer is working splendiferously–better than it has in a long time–and I am doing the dance of joy!
Every day this week, even though I was very tired, I walked on the treadmill. I confess that hate walking on treadmills. I like to take meandering Danny for a walk each day, pausing so he can sniff interesting things. I like cuddling up with a cup of coffee, a book, and a cat on a cool morning. I hate exercises because they are boring and feel like a chore. But I have walked on the treadmill each day. I heard that 30 minutes of treadmill walking helps a person maintain her weight, and anything after that burns calories. Do not tell me if that is not true because believing it is true motivates me to walk an HOUR each day, and an hour has to do more for me than 30 minutes. Bleah.
Today I think I will not walk on the treadmill because I mowed the lawn this afternoon. When I was done I was hot and sweaty even though the day is cool so I think that mowing the lawn is worth an hour on the treadmill. I was sort of dreading mowing because I of my bad experiences with the lawn mowers breaking every time I used them this summer. But I decided that I might as well get it over with. I went out to the Rebel Scum and pulled the starter with trepidation. YAY! It started! I was able to mow the whole lawn without it breaking. Now the lawn looks wonderful.
