Sharing Pictures

Sandie Kittie loves this rose. She's knocked it over four times since Kaylee got it from Dennis as a graduation present. I sent Kaylee and Dennis this picture so they could see how nice the rose opened up.  Sandie Kittie graciously posed, cuz she misses them, too.
Kaylee's off vacationing with her Colorado family.  Kaylee sent me a picture of the Pacific.
Look at the beautiful pacific :) ~Kaylee

Dennis left to go visit his Dad and Pam and help them out with ceiling/roof trouble.  He sent me a pic of his prop plane just after getting on,  This is the view out his window.

Thai Tea and Lunch

I'm having lunch at The Green Papaya. This Thai Tea is SO good!!
I was in the mood for Pho today. I ordered the Pho with tofu and veggies. Can't wait! I'll update later on what I thought of their Pho. The restaurant itself is clean and relaxed. The decor is nice and the seating is comfortable. Prices are decent too.

Not amazing... Not my favorite pho house. No complaints, it just didn't stand out.

My C25K Break

I am SO MISSING taking time out in the day to train and the feeling of accomplishment that goes along with it.
I have had MUCH success with visiting the physical therapist to work on my core muscles... but I can't go on indefinitely using the PT Therapy as a substitute for a personal trainer... I guess. Darn it!!
I suppose now it's time to take some initiative to continue my core work on my own. I have my Home program of exercises and I've done pretty good get in a workout twice a week. (Though less this last week.)
This is not where I'd like to be with workouts; I'd like to rack up at least 5 sessions a week, but I guess I've been practicing at getting started. Sometimes you practice at quitting a habit, and sometimes you practice at starting a habit. It'll take, maybe this time, maybe next time, but until it does you get to hear about the latest attempt.
The point is I've been trying... and all of it is moving me in the right direction, but I am ready to quit trying and just be, "be" the fit active health nut I've been working at becoming.
Baby Steps!

The big plunge...
