Thank you, Regina, for the encouragement.
Did this challenge on a commercial break during Dancing With The Stars. Not sure just how long these breaks are but am pretty sure they exceed the two minutes DC required. Stayed close to the sofa back in case I needed to grab it to maintain my balance.
Had snow and wind most all day....temp in the low 40s so snow was melting as soon as it came in contact with ground. Now tonight it is raining. I noticed today that the maple tree in my backyard is in bud.....another sign that Spring will eventually arrive.
Big Al spent most of the afternoon in his recliner....napping.... with ice on his knee. He had a tough PT session today. Plus, he has not been sleeping well at night. Hope he can sleep tonight.
Well, March is almost over......quarter of the year gone already. March 31, 2015 at 0:36 UTC

Do this routinely as soon as statement arrives. Also retain any receipts so I can cross reference them.
I suppose I should investigate doing this online....as well as get started with online banking. However........guess I'm the procrastination queen....just don't trust the whole idea. As a former banker, I saw too many glitches. Eventually, I'll have to drag myself kicking and screaming in the present world!
Dinner with the grands tonight......the brownie trifle was deemed a keeper. No school for the grands or SIL (a teacher) this next week.......spring break here
SIL worked on my laptop and it is somewhat improved. It seems new to me, but SIL tells me it is really outdated......geez, its only 6 years old! But he says if we were comparing it to a car, I would be driving a Model T!
We had a pretty blue sky day with lots of sun.....but still cold.....14 degs this morning.
Happy new week everyone! March 29, 2015 at 23:16 UTC
Thanks going out to Kathryn T for sending encouragement to me today.....much appreciated.
Bridges done.....and as long as I was down on the floor I also did some leg raises....which also help the core. Then the hard job.....getting back up off the floor!
Woke up to a world of white this morning.....close to two inches had fallen sometime during the night! I'm still trusting Spring will get here.....sooner than later would be nice. Bright and sunny with temp in the mid-20s today but with the wind it felt more like the mid-teens.
My oldest grand, Matt, requested a brownie trifle for dessert tomorrow night. It's made and in the fridge.
Received a flower delivery today.....from Big Al as a thank you for helping him during his knee replacement recovery.
Hope everyone is enjoying a good weekend. March 29, 2015 at 1:24 UTC
Luckily, I dodged this bullet....even though I worked at a computer keyboard for years......and before that used a typewriter daily. Per the doctor, the pain I experience in my hands and wrists now is arthritis based. My sister underwent surgery for her carpal tunnel several years prior to her death. Big Al tells me he also had the surgery many years ago.....occasionally he'll experience the tingling sensation.
The day started with rain, then progressed to snow.....which initially melted as it hit the ground. The next time I looked out the ground was all white......bah, humbug! Then back to rain and the snow was gone again. We are in the ugly season.....snow mostly gone; ravages of winter revealed. I know, I know....this too shall pass.
My laptop is behaving strangely....very unresponsive. Think I'll take it over to my SIL and ask him to work his magic on it.
Have a wonderful weekend. March 28, 2015 at 0:11 UTC

I dump out my purse/bag on a very regular basis.....usually once a week.....don't like to have bits and pieces floating around in there and I like to have things in their assigned places..
I would love to have an opportunity to sit down with a purse designer and come up with what I would consider the "perfect" purse. I've been looking for the perfect one for years .....but it's an elusive critter. At least now I only look....instead of buy!
Cloudy and grey here today, rain this afternoon......accomplished lots this morning so the afternoon was tailor-made for napping......and I did!
Happy Thursday. March 27, 2015 at 1:17 UTC

Snacked on green grapes during the day; then had green beans with dinner tonight.....so challenge done even before reading it.
Mild and sunny, but windy, today......temp reached 48 degrees. Now tonight it is raining and still windy; definitely cooler.
Tried making a bread pudding this afternoon.....it was edible....but definitely not the way I remember my grandmother's bread pudding. Will have to keep trying to make a good one.
Big Al is hurting a bit tonight. He thinks maybe he overdid the driving today. We weren't out a long, long time but, on top of the driving, he did walk around in two stores.
Happy Wednesday. March 26, 2015 at 0:04 UTC

Thank you, Regina, for sending encouragement today.
We do a very similar exercise in O/A class...class was this morning...... soooooo, challenge already done. But did it again following these directions.....figured it couldn't hurt.
Today was one of my favorite days.......the day I saw my first robin of the season! Now maybe spring will really be here soon. However, per the forecast, more snow is predicted for later this week; with perhaps significant accumulations.
Big Al is happy.......his doctor gave him permission to start driving again. I don't mind driving his big ol' truck, but it's not my favorite thing to do......so I'm happy too! March 25, 2015 at 0:30 UTC

Went to the wiki site and keyed in Key West, FL......contained much more information than I expected.
Another cold, windy, sunny day here in the North Country......at least it was sunny!
Today is National Puppy Day.....wonder how many critters found new homes today?
Don't know the source of this....but I like it; going to adopt it for my life guideline.
Everything you do is based on the choices you make.
It's not your parents, your past relationships, your job,
the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame.
You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make.

I'm good on this one.......no bent or frayed bristles here....was just at the dentist this past week and received a goody bag which contained a new brush along with floss, lip balm, mouthwash, etc.
So cold here this morning....thermometer said 11 degs., but with the fierce "breeze" the wind chill was sub-zero. The wind has continued all day......brrrr, even though we had bright sun and a high of 17 degrees.
Dinner with the grands tonight and I made Mikey very happy with the Mississippi Mud Brownies I took over. These rich brownies definitely call for a real tall glass of milk. Have decided there is nothing stickier to work with than marshmallow fluff that has been warmed to make it spreadable!
Have a great new week! March 23, 2015 at 0:31 UTC
