Here are the stats for the day..............
My Healing Cycle stats
I made pretty good time on the ride - not too many hills, but have a look -we did do some climbing and my FitBit registered all the altitudes changes. Yet - it doesn't really register time on the outdoor bike, yet it registers time on the spin bike. I should ask about that. I am just curious.
It is always an emotional start and even more so since Jo-Ann had passed away the night before. I thought a lot about her and other friends who have been stricken with illness and those who are no longer with us. It made me feel better to know that I am helping in some small way to better the lives of patients with terminal illnesses.
I had heard about the BIKE tree, but had not had a chance to see it. I am not sure how long it has been there, but here is a picture of it. Pretty cool.
|The bike tree|
|That's a a bit better. Anyway - it is pretty cool and lots of bikes hanging there. The tree is part of a fundraiser called Pedaling against Poverty.|
Speaking of FitBits - you HAVE to read this article. It is pretty funny and thanks to Pauline for forwarding me the link.
And you think I am obsessive!!!!! I do like the idea of picking up garbage though and have thought of it. I need that poker stick thing. Anyway - make sure you read all three pages!!!!!
Oh my - I even did a geocache the other day. Had to meet Carol as she had picked up something for me in the US.
Anyway a while back - I posted a picture of that neat little case that Diane was using for her small projects. Not to be out done by Diane (I know - so childish!!!!), but Carol found me this box in the US ..............
|A neat storage box|
|Which holds (and came with) SIX of those little boxes.!!!!!|
This is perfect for small hand work projects and less likely that I could misplace a big box like that instead of those little ones on their own!!!!! I did find that pattern that I was looking for!!! And I knew that I knew where it was - my brain is just so stuffed with things that I could not recall in my brain that information. That is my theory and I'm sticking to it!!!!!!!!!!!
Speaking of storage - I believe I mentioned the other day about the Rubbermaid tubs that I bought...........
|Rubbermaid tubs available at Milton Restore for $2. (Thanks to Mary for that lead)|
Well I was hoping to tame this mess with those tubs.............
|Well - it did help somewhat|
As I am moving through all this stuff - I keep coming across small bits of coordinated scraps. What to do with them?????? Well Mary would just whip up a bag. And if Mary can whip up a bag - so can I.
I was working on a project yesterday and ended up with TWO almost identical in size pieces that would be perfect for a bag. I came home and opened up my zipper box.............
|And sorted them by size|
|Pulled out all the small zippers. Hmmm - we seem to have a colour theme happening here. And I need BROWNS and GREENS. Guess a shopping trip is in order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
I got a call from the vet last night about Sparky. Yes - she seems to be healing well, but I still won't show you a picture. It isn't pretty. But now we will have to call her SCAR FACE.
|I doubt she will end up with a scar, but the scab fell off her nose and part of it is pink!!!!!|
|And not to leave Milo and Sammy out of the excitement, I found this picture when I was editing this morning. Milo is thinking "if I just hide - she won't notice me and then I can pounce on her!!!"|
On that note - I am THRILLED with what I have got done the last 24 hours and can't wait to share with you tomorrow.
I have a ton of things to get done today - better get started.
Have an awesome day.............
