|"In our fort!"|
Ah, that decompresses me. Did I get the video window size right?
From back in May, when we took a break from moving.
Yesterday the little ones sat on the couch with me and we watched Gummy Bear videos. They were enthralled. So was I, this being my first exposure. Please don't feel like you have to watch...
The 11 year old, who had received an overlarge dose of Gummy Bear videos over the last several years, was not impressed. He wrapped a pillow around his head and suffered like a man. After 30 minutes my ears began to bleed.
Just kidding of course, but I see his point.
Nevertheless, it was a lovely time.
Before that it was checking cattle and exercise on a cool and breezy morning.

I ran Vader Hill hard in jeans and work boots. Later I paid a price in pain but it wasn't that bad, and the pain was offset by having had a bloody good HIIT cardio workout. It takes what it takes.
And from the "it takes what it takes" (ITWIT) file, I'm looking hard at lap swimming. There's an expense to the thing, 80 mile round trip and a hefty membership fee. But what price fitness? And I can in theory combine swimming trips with other activities. Oh yeah, gotta buy a swimsuit. I don't think I can squeeze into one of hers. Not without an incident.
And now it's time to go spray thistle. Or make the attempt anyway.
I'll try to get some video and images and 'splain the process tomorrow (or so).
I'm going to throw these in I guess. One of Allie's good friends put it up. Messages from her and her kids. She loved feathers and sunflowers and people and life. She touched so very many people and cast sunshine wherever she went. I don't want to make this blog into a dirge, but Good Lord I miss my sweetheart, my soulmate.
