Few More with Maizy

April 10, 2012
2.10 miles with Janet & Maizy.
Ticks are especially bad right now.  We stuck to the road.  Shearer Road, crossed over Center Drive, and North Butler Church Road to the church, then back.  Maizy is getting strong and needs to learn to heal. 

I've been SO busy that I have failed to keep up the last couple of weeks.  Ack!  There was a day when I forgot to turn Runkeeper on and another day I had another kind of exercise... getting rocks!  Janet is building a hillside covered with rocks, creek rocks.  We've made countless trips to the creek for loads of rocks.  It's good exercise and seeing the progress on the hill by the barn makes it totally worth it.  I was at 7 Springs this past week.  There are huge hills there, duh, for skiing.  There is not enough snow for skiing now, but boy did I want to hike the mountain.  If we wouldn't have been so busy in the conference, or if Keith wouldn't have been in such a hurry to get home... I might have climbed it.  Oh well... another time. 

April 27, 2012
2.01 miles with Janet & Maizy.
Chilly, breezy, but sunny makes it pleasant.  Too breezy to go for a ride on Penny.  Wind makes her crazy!  Maizy has a new collar with grippy teeth.  She behaves nicely in it.  She's SO happy to go for a walk and even more so happy to run circles in the yard afterwards.  What a cute puppy!  I need to get a more recent picture of her.  She's growing so fast!

Couple More

Keith made time to pound out 2.5 miles with me on the trails at Hartwood Acres on April 8, 2012.

Janet and I took Maizy for a 2.10 mile walk this evening. 

Another random note:  I bought some cabbage grown by a local farmer.  I sliced it, dribbled on some EVOO, sprinkled with course ground seasalt and some cracked pepper.  Then I roasted it ina 400 degree oven for 35 minutes.  Mmmmm... roasted cabbage.  Delicious!

Keith's schedule doesn't seem so bad.  I won't see him on Tuesday or Friday, but most every other day our paths will cross.  We are very blessed for him to have this opportunity.

Let The Change Begin

I'm delighted that Keith is starting his new position with the USPS today.  He was to report to work this evening at 8PM.  He'll be working nights, presumably for at least a year.  I have my reservations about it, but trust that God's plan is perfect.  Sooooo.... thus begins a number of lonely nights for me.  I'll adjust in due time.  While I'm missing the evening cuddling with my love, I shall use the time to redirect my attentions.  Therefore, let the change begin... 
  • Healthy meals (more salads, less pasta)
  • Hiking
  • Maybe a membership at the community center.
  • Horseback riding
  • Participation in the Women's group at church
  • Girls Group Bible Study
  • Studying for my CPCS Certification
Of course, I will need to make some adjustments to have special time with Keith on his days off.  I hope an pray that he enjoys this new endeavor.

Quick Catch Up
