I didn't spend much money, and I never spend much at Walmart because I can never find what I want. I bought 3 items and got cash back from a $10 bill.
I was going to walk at Mather Field while I was out, but ended up going to the gym near my house and doing a little over a mile on the treadmill. I vary the pace, starting off fairly slow and then ramp it up until my heart rate is close to the maximum rate for my age, then gradually drop down to a little slower pace. It works out that most of my mile is at 3.5 mph. I keep trying to walk 4 mph, but for some reason I can't keep up with the speed of the tread and am afraid of falling off the back of the machine. Wouldn't that be a sight! A lot of folks must have made New Year's resolutions to get fit because there were so many people working out both last night and this morning.
Last night was gym night with Jeannie & Donald, and Don called and asked if I would come over early, have supper at their house, and then help Autumn with a school project. She has to interview several relatives and then prepare a report of her genealogy. She was given a list of questions to ask, including those about the days I grew up in. Then, "What makes you happy now", to which I replied "Being with family". She started writing it down and said "Everyone says that". I guess it's true for most of us who are grandparents, and I also added "traveling as much as I can".
We are a long way from spring, but I think I'm starting to get spring fever! I have a fabulous spring planned, and hope everything works out the way I'm planning it, although there are bound to be hiccups along the way.
I'm fixing a big pot of chicken vegetable soup this afternoon - I'll love it for the first couple of bowls and then get tired of it
DON'T MISS HIS SENSE OF HUMOR
