I'm diligently trying to work exercise in to my morning routine. I enjoy leisurely time in the word, but for my health, I really do need to make exercise a priority. This is the week to start again. Jan and Feb were good. March was too full of travel. April....well ever noticed  how easy it is to break a good habit and how hard it is to begin again?

5:30 - put a load in the washer - 30 min on the bike
6:05 - hung clothes outside
6:20 - 7:45 walked with Zander
8:00 breakfast
8:30 - 11:30 couch school
11:30 - 1:00 piano lessons and table school
1:00 - 4:00 - speaking research, some PWOC stuff, housework, laundry folding, hanging more (3 loads today in the wind), walk to ponies, played a bit of games with the kids....
4:45 - head to base
5:00 errands for Jared
5:30 - drop Jared and Arielle off; pick up dinner for younger 3
5:45 - 7:00 Weasel's Den - fun visit with Susane, local PWOC President
7:00 - 8:00 on to the library
8:00 - 8:20 wait for Jared and Arielle
8:30 - dropped mower off at Rick and Renee's

It all fit. A great day. Our walk was gorgeous. It was a clear day and felt very warm to us. We enjoyed the views of the mountains.

This lady was happy to greet us and exchange niceties about the weather. IN JAPANESE...I'm learning, I'm learning.

I'd been wanting to grab some shots of this barn, but we're always driving past....took many shots

Our house from down the road....doesn't the laundry look cozy?

We tried all morning to take a photo of a "bird other than a crow," we captured this one in our own yard.

We keep a box in the entry way  and we all throw things in to send to Dad. When the box is full, we mail it. This is working well for us.

Mom - it's a SMALL box....we fill them and send them off and start anohter. I can't use flat rate boxes - so I use the small boxes we get books in from amazon. LOL The photo perspective must make it look bigger than it is. LOL
