What I'm Reading This Week #9

Happy Friday!  The first few days of March are in the books.  How did March come in for you?  Like a lion or lamb?  It's been lamb-ish here so it'll be interesting to see where we are in 28ish days and if the lion comes out.  Do people know what I'm talking about when I say all of that or does no one remember that saying and I sound like a nutball?  (More than usual)

It's been a long week.  We had to order a security system because there are just too many reports of skeezers between attempts at seeing who leaves their cars open and now a report of a door to door person harassing people trying to get personal information.  We haven't had this problem in 26 years until we got construction going on all sides of us.  No idea if that's a factor or not but I remember when 10 years ago we had a weather event that took our power out for over a week and while 80% of the neighborhood evacuated, we didn't.  We immediately saw a few unfamiliar faces in the neighborhood that we hadn't seen before.  So...

We didn't leave and I booby trapped the hell out of the house at that time so I guess we're gonna have to go there.  It's like scumbags operate on change in routine in neighborhoods to take advantage.  But, it's everywhere now.  That's apparently the world we live in and the Mr is prepared to take other precautions for the pending apocalypse.  Aces.

Here were our workouts for this week:
Sunday- Leg Day with The Work on Beachbody on Demand
Monday- Walk at the park as long as we could stand...see previous day's workout
Tuesday- Upper Body dumbbell workout
Wednesday- Walk at Grandma's cemetery
Thursday- Full Body strength workout to fully cripple me
Friday- undetermined cardio but it can't be insane because my body is broken

Now let's break into...

This scientist busts myths about how humans burn calories—and why  (Courtesy of the Mr.  Maybe we'll do math problems while working out.)

Waiting: Rediscovering Boredom in the Age of the Smartphone  (I've thought about doing this on our walks.  We take our loop for granted.  I spend most of my walk looking down so I don't step on something instead of looking around.)

50 Uplifting Animal Pictures To Help You Get Through The Week (Aww!!  Animals are so good and pure.  Society could learn a lot from their unconditional love!)

No plans for the weekend.  It's going to be warm then rainy then cold so basically mother nature is also feeling like Doakes and throwing out temperatures like Powerball numbers.  Hopefully the mood will strike us to get out of the house but finding a place to go that isn't full of people will be a trick.

Anything you've got on the agenda for the weekend?

  1. No plans here either - unless I somehow get really ambitious. I woke up broken this morning though, so I doubt ambition will set in. Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. We are due to hit 60 degrees tomorrow, but then snow on Monday. Some day a coat, some days not; crazy stuff. I drove out to see my uncle yesterday for a visit and will go back at Easter. Today is grocery shopping and laundry, tomorrow is a meeting and bringing both dogs to the pool - a first, and then it's working the rest of the weekend. I hope you can get out for a while and see some sites, even if on a nice country drive with some good ol' fresh air!
