Movements

We’re ending off the first week of June and a few changes are underway. Unfortunately I (we) have to move from base housing and into another place. I will miss it up here, the quiet, the security, the cheap rent….

I’ll miss being able to just take my bike out the front door and almost be instantly on a safe bike lane. I’ll miss the space, the bright windows, the feeling of home that I’ve had for the first time in a long time.

With any hope, my friends and I (current roommates) will be renting a detached house in the lower valley. We’re supposed to be viewing it soon. Big back yard, nice back deck, and hopefully access to a garage as well. I’m not excited about packing up and moving again, especially disassembling and moving my squat rack and 350 pounds of weights back upstairs. Ugh.

Positive spin? Yes hey? I’ve got friends and family that are down to help us relocate. That’s always a good thing. And hopefully, I’ll get a bigger bedroom this time lol.

Here’s some pictures from the last couple of weeks, including a recent long weekend I took at home.

Love,

A regular winter’s day

I’m constantly uploading the images from my iPhone to my computer and wiping my phone. I have a pretty strict organization system for my images and for what makes the cut. Obviously, my kid Grace is the exception to this rule. Just can’t have enough pictures lol.

This pretty much summarizes the content of my phone at any given time:

Dog Parkin’ It

Since we got Daisy the lil husky mix back in October we’ve been visiting the dog park more. Bringing Grace alone often proved to be a challenge, because other dogs would tend to gang up on her as they saw her blindness as weakness and I didn’t think it was worth the stress on her to do this.

Daisy, on the other hand, is a little scrapper when things get in the way of Grace and herself, so she’s proven to be quite useful at the dog park. No dogs have been picking on Grace since I’ve taken them together. Sometimes I luck out and it’s just the three of us there.

Here are some shots from today. There’s one that’s quite funny, you’ll know it when you spot it. I was attempting to take a picture of Grace and just as I went to take the shot Daisy jumped over her. I laughed so hard it made me dizzy.

My love to you all.

Heart Songs

I’ve recently had a scary incident with hypertension. After a 10-hour hospital visit, my doctor put me on two types of blood pressure medication to get my symptoms under control. It was a really scary day. Scary enough that I’ve replaced bacon with cheerios, and all beverages with water.

(I mean there are more changes, just trying to interject some humor)

I took 4 days off of work and went to St. Lewis to see my family. I was really in need of some downtime. I could joke and say that visiting my family didn’t help much with the blood pressure… lol… because it didn’t… but truly, it was nice to be with mom and dad for a while. I live within a 6-hour drive of them, pending road conditions, but it seems like I never get to see them.

Here are some pics from my visit.

Be well;
