Dreary

013

Well, we finally had a rainy night last night, and, might I add, it is long overdue.

Of course the summer was long and dry,perfect:the reason was because I was working ALL summer and didn’t have a chance to ENJOY it.Well, I did when I got the chance to get out with the girls and Jim and went for a ride or a hike. Still, the summer went flying by.

Here it is, the first week of autumn, and my first”weekend” off, and of course it is really dreary.I am getting the girls out, and most particularly,Zush and I are taking second walks so I can get a urine sample from her for tomorrow’s vet visit. She is meeting her new vet, and getting her second blood work drawn.

Please work a prayer or send some healthy puppy vibes up for the Zusher tomorrow-she sure can use it!

Fitbit update

IMG_5419

I went to the Doctor this morning for my physical.I have been on the fit bit zip side Halloween 2014,and today, when I stood on the scale, I am down a total of 40 lbs since then-down 10 since March.If that doesn’t give testimony to the viability of the fit bit zip, I don’t know what does.

I looked at today as the fall tune-up for the auto season for the winter. I got my blood work done and we’ll see if hopefully,all numbers for me will be good.With that out-of-the-way, all is left is Zush and taking her in Thursday afternoon for her blood work second set. Please keep the prayers and good puppy mojo going for our girl.

Thanks!

Good Morning

I have hope in my heart that today will be a good day.

I had stayed up a little last night to watch the Supermoon, and to try to take some artful snaps. That, in itself was quite difficult, since I only have an iPhone 6 for a camera.Back in the day I owned a Pentax K1000 and took fabulous shots on that. 

 
That was the start from our back yard. Unfortunately the Ferry beckoned me in for a 7-3 shift today,so it was not long after that I had to hit the sack. I did manage to catch the eclipse and the red moon, which was neat.

What was even neater was our morning walk this morning.This is what we were treated to as we got down on the front porch. 

 
The girls and I started on our way and went down to see the bay.

  
  
Thanks to me not dragging along, the three amigas caught some awesome sights along the bay,to the point when we came back & I showed Jim the pictures, he asked where the moon went. I told him the morning walk was prime time while it was dark out.

   
 
So I am leaving you, gentle reader,with two of my night/morning after Supermoon shots. I hope you enjoy them.

Hanging

It is funny here at work, in that it is so blustery, people keep calling to see if the ferry is cancelled.

They are worried that the choppy water would stop a big ferry from crossing an 18 mile bay. When we tell them that It takes hurricane force winds to slow us, it gets really quiet and they go..”OH.”

The bay sometimes freezes over in the winter, but normally it runs 365 days a year.

  

By the Dawn’s Early Light

Had to get up early today,as work was early.

It is a dark walk these days,the curse of daylight savings time.I know seasons change, but it is rough getting out of bed.I love my girls, but the fact that work follows, well…not my favorite. I have to give them credit though-my gals love their walks. Granted, we don’t run, but Zush seems to have gotten a second wind now that it’s cooler, so we average two miles a morning.

All this while Daddy gets to sleep.

  
  

Frustration

So here I am, sitting in my living room with the pups and Pope Francis, and multi-tasking…multi-tasking,you ask?

I am live chatting with Josephine at Fitbit.

Last night, I had a low battery message on my Fitbit zip. Different battery, no more low battery message…but now my zip won’t sync with my phone.Josephine is, now 30 minutes later, processing a replacement zip for me. 

 
The girls fortunately are hanging with Pope Francis and not picking up Mom’s agita.

We’ll see how things go: stay tuned!
