    we did ski a tiny bit but the snow was too patchy. it means taking the skis on/ off, on /off, and walking carrying them. this gets old very fast. its way worse on the way down than up. done for the year. good downhill skiers can ski much of the year here if they don't mind skinning...

    tried to do the last ski of the season this morning. not enough snow. and then my skis fell apart. the bottom layer of plastic separated, and started literally flopping around loose. they are old skis but that did it. we duct taped the layers together but not worth it. we would have...

    did stacked sets upper body along with x train abs and some specific PT exercises. also some serious gardening early in the day. going to drop the PT program and do only things that work for me unless the therapist has better ideas. it feels the exercises targeting the lumbar area make...

    I did a mt bike ride around the neighborhood yesterday for 5 miles about an hour. all on paved roads so not challenging but there are significant hills. Not flat! today we did a hike about 1.5 hours at a state park. we expected "busy" but even tho the campground was full, it was early...

    its a relief to know there is no leak. you cant just rip the walls and ceilings apart to look for water leaks! the problem is pressurizer goes off. sometimes often, other times every 20 minutes. its annoying especially at night. we are not done with the issue but at least we know...

    had to go in for a blood draw early this morning and we had an appt with a specialist in water leak detection. he spent some time with DH trying to locate source of a "possible" water leak that seems not to exist. very complicated. we have a pressurizer on our water system and its more...

    Cathy I loved (past tense) the merlin app for bird sounds. ours worked for 5 days, then stopped. unknown reason. we submitted our email but it's not acknowledged, like somehow it doesn't go through. we unloaded reloaded it twice. when the 5 day trial was over, ours stopped working...

    I am appropriately achy after stacked sets yesterday so I'm happy. shoulder has continued to settle down but I am nervous because I don't know what caused the problem to begin with. it wasnt as easy as it used to be but for not doing much upper body work for so long, I feel good about...

    cathy, lots of riders use go pro cameras to ID problems but Ive never gotten one. I recognized the business name. the driver passed with about 2 inches to spare. otherwise empty 2 lane road. no reason he couldn't have swerved slightly to make it less dangerous. when you feel the heat of...

    we have been riding a long time. 50 years. it used to be quieter. riding 'backroads' used to be easier. cycling is popular here. there are bicycle clubs, plenty of people who ride, some on 55 mph( 70 mph) roads. most locals keep their dogs under control. dogs that chase bikes are...

    went mt biking this morning at a state park we use occasionally. DH had to drop a caulk gun off for repair at a business close to the park so we had a very nice 2 hour ride on their lovely but difficult trails. 8 miles total. a good reason to make the drive there. then did therapy work...

    All we can do is ride earlier in the morning before a lot of people get out there. I have no problem with dogs or kids but the adult has to have control of them! could be a disaster for any or all parties. we follow the rules. ride on the right, pass on the left. so many walkers dont , or...

    our 15 mile ride an hour and 12 minutes. really lovely out. we went early but still too busy. need to go even earlier. it is supposed to warm up today so that was the reason, plus mothers day. too many people not paying attention while walking their dogs. if a dog runs in front of me...
