My brother and I loved to color and we could entertain ourselves for hours quietly coloring. Once we were staying at Grandma's and she noticed we weren't making any noise. Certain we were up to no good, she spent 10 minutes S L O W L Y sneaking up on us, avoiding all the squeaky spots in her hallway so as not to alert us. She was certain she would catch us in the midst of some mischief. All that care was for naught ... Mom had wisely sent along two new "jumbo" coloring books and a big box of crayons, and we were happily coloring away.

May 5, Saturday: Do you work out? If so, what's your favorite thing to do for a work out?

I have a bookmark that describes my "work out" .....
My only exercise is reading in bed until my arms get tired.

I keep telling myself that I'm going to join Silver Sneakers now that I've retired, but I just haven't gotten around to it ... yet

Monday, May 7: It looks like it's finally Spring here ... and Summer may be round the corner. SO .... sandals or shoes?

I left Wisconsin on April 18 to drive down to Texas ... It was snowing in Wisconsin when I left. But I switched to sandals in Texas and I'm NOT going back to shoes! Not until sometime in October ...

Forecast for later this week is high of 56 with a low of 38, so I may rethink that decision ... for a day or two.

I don't work out at a gym. I enjoy doing yard work and playing with my 9 year old outside.

Here in Colorado it's still ranging from 40 degrees one day to 80 degrees the next - so what I wear depends on how Colorado decides to act for the day lol.

I joined a fitness center not too long ago and go every night for a couple hours. It has an amazing daycare that my son loves. So even when I don't want to go, he begs we go. I can't deny him that. It's great motivation for me.

Yes ... a few times in Europe and once from Hong Kong to Guangzhou

As for the USA ... short trips to/from Chicago ... and a longer trip to Buffalo NY and later to Memphis TN. I think hubby and I will be taking the train at least part of the way to Texas over the Christmas holidays this year.
