If I'm not feeling well, I need to blog about it. Now I also need to be careful that I don't jinx myself, but I had a ton of work to do yesterday. Fortunately, I felt great when I got up, and ZERO napping was required the entire day, so that was a bonus. And I feel great today, so could I have reached the turning point?
I quickly wrote a list of everything that needed to be taken care of. I am my mother's daughter when it comes to that because my Mom is a list maker. I've found numerous lists around her house -- she makes lists and writes down everything! At least I don't keep my lists when I'm done!
Was the list doable? I didn't know, but I needed to empty my head and get some of it written down. And one by one, I worked my way through those things. ALL of the semi-urgent paperwork got completed. I finished the last of it last night. Phones calls were made, projects were packed, e-mails were sent, and I made huge leaps and bounds in crossing things off the list.
There are still many things that need to be done - I have a lot of writing to do, but those urgent things were completed. The next small pile of stuff to do is sitting here waiting for when I get back! Yes, back because I'm on the road again.
Someone sent me this poster, and I'm sharing it with you. If anyone is in the area this weekend, there is a garden tour with QUILTS on Sunday. What a great idea, a joint effort by the Brampton Quilter's Guild and the Brampton Horticultural Society. Shoot --- I won't be around, but it would have been a fun activity.
Hopefully, that is large enough for you to see how to buy tickets!

At that rate, I should be finished in less than two weeks! I will take a break from the virtual challenges for a bit. Well, not exactly, as I am working on my HUGE goal for cardio miles for 2022, and instead of an afternoon walk, I'll be riding my bike more to make up for the wee deficit. I had counted the KMs from spin class and a few rides in the summer, and with the pandemic and a bit of travel, my spin miles are down, so I need to get back on track. Then I'll find another virtual challenge to do.
With the completion of the Pacific Crest Trail, I've finished their THREE longest challenges. But there are a couple more that are long. I don't know why everyone picks the short ones and complains about the long ones. We pay the SAME price, so I am definitely getting my money's worth! Others have loads of medals and started way after I did. I only have two challenge medals so far, and I'm good with that!
But it just shows that slow and steady is how to win!
There's that Lazy Lexi! I caught her napping by the front door, and she lazily opened her eyes as I approached quietly. She doesn't need to lift her head to acknowledge you are there. Nope, she tracks you with her eyes, and because her eyes are blue -- you can see her do it! What a princess!

|At the movies|
So I've seen a lot of background information on this movie, and those pilots were really in those planes when they flew those high G's. He wanted their faces to be realistic, and you can't make that up. They went through very rigorous training to get into those fighter jets, and the military training personnel was betting that some of them would bail. NONE of the actors bailed. Those actors did NOT fly the planes, but they were in them. I'll have to tell you about my movie experience another day!
Here's a link to the 10-minute video if you want to watch it. I don't know if I would have had the stomach to do what they did.
Anyway -- it's time for me to pack the car. I've been good with the packing, but can I get everything in? I need to take those two tuffet kits, which might be challenging.
Yep -- it's off to quilt retreat!
Have a super day!!!
