Done. Wrote myself a NOTE! Much easier and better for me than trying to wrangle with the electronic gadgets.
found an excellent way to check my local weather, too: LOOK OUT THE WINDOW. Sky is bright blue, cloudless, the branches with flowers are waving gently, and a neighbor just walked by with her jacket zipped up tight. so....looks as if we've got another mild but chilly spring day here. most grateful for the sunshine!!
we're still cookin', Lillian! I'm not sure how many points I will be contributing to our pact, as I've been bizzy with chores this week, not so much time to spend online. But we'll see. fun anyway. Have a splendid day, all! April 28, 2015 at 12:29 UTC
did it! wound up with the chair practically in the kitchen, but it felt good. Thanks for your encouragement, Kathy!.
57F-63F partly cloudy, but nice sun on our drive. breeze. pollen is back up at HIGH.
Feliz Lunes-y, all. especially .Linda D., whose beloved husband died day before yesterday. Holding her and all their loved ones in the light. April 27, 2015 at 13:08 UTC
sounds easy, surprisingly hard--which means I need to do this regularly. (The voice of the couch potato is heard in the land....)
48F-65F cloudy, a bit of wind. still a lovely spring day. pollen is LOW today, thanks be. Need to remember later today to check the metro escalator at Dupont Circle--often the pollen accumulation there looks as if someone had sprinkled cornmeal over it. Those ash trees especially produce prodigious amounts of pollen. Farmers market day today in Dupont Circle!!
It's day one of our pact, Lillian. it's early afternoon where you are. As we used to say, "this morning, I got a potato clock"--is it boring if you're waiting to see if I do the challenge or not?
Thanks so much for your encouragement, Pat! So welcome, and indeed encouraging!! Happy last Sunday of the month, all!! April 26, 2015 at 12:19 UTC
Lovely! nothing like breathing!!
47F-67F today, 682 pollen? they don't publish the screamingly high data for Saturdays or Sundays. Best number I can get is 682. still very high, but my eyes are not as itchy. no rain all day, but starting around 6pm, a high chance of showers all evening.
It's the birthday of Ella Fitzgerald!! She had a vocal range of 3 octaves!! Here's an ear worm for you:
"Someone To Watch Over Me." April 25, 2015 at 12:00 UTC
Good one! Feels very good. i seem to freeze a bit when I sleep deeply. This helps break the ice! :)
60F and sunny. no rain. Pollen is still stratospheric, though almost 1000 less than yesterday, when it
was like pollen soup!
Thanks for the note, Kathy. TGIF, all! Take some time for yourself this weekend--even five minutes. April 24, 2015 at 11:23 UTC
yup, did it. several reps. like this. like those big, tall stretches.
46F-59F mostly cloudy today, but no rain? doesn't the iching say something like that? "Dense clouds, no rain." Pollen VERY high today = 2362!! thanks to the ash and birch trees. that's ok, dear
trees. but wow.
Thankful Thursday. Thankful for everything--even the pollen. Every minute is precious...enjoy! April 23, 2015 at 11:14 UTC

60F-70F lovely spring day. sun shining, a few clouds....rain later??
Today is Wensday--all day! Have fun, all!! April 22, 2015 at 13:37 UTC
I did and I liked it! Always feels good to get the kinks out after I get up. DC was at the top of my.inbox
this am--didn't have to search for it--so I did it first thing.
58F-67F mostly cloudy.
It's the birthday of Charlotte Bronte, who wrote JANE EYRE and WUTHERING HEIGHTS. It's also the birthday of naturalist John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club. He was a mechanical genius who entered some of his inventions in the Wisconsin State Fair and won enough $$ to pay his tuition at U of Wisconsin. He left the mechanical world behind after being temporarily blinded when a struck his eye, and he spent 6 weeks in a darkened room wondering if he would ever see again. When he could see again, he devoted the rest of his life to the natural world and conservation. Have a wonderful day, all! April 21, 2015 at 11:58 UTC
