Nothing Much...

Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. ~Edward Stanley

DH was home yesterday and feeling quite mellow for a change. We went out for seafood at lunch (about a once a year splurge because everytime the check comes, I almost pass out from the shock) and then looked at treadmills. Yes, I'm still trying to find the best bang for my buck before winter comes and I can't do my walking outside. Nordic Tracks are far junkier than I'd expected -- lots of bells and whistles, but they look like they'd fall apart if you actually used them. The one that impressed me the most was the Sole F80 -- it's quite solid (I jumped up and down on that sucker HARD several times and it barely even shivered, as opposed to the Nordic Track which felt like it was going through a 7.0 earthquake), has good legs underneath (it's a folding treadmill, so I was a little concerned) where Nordic Track had rollers, the deck was solid and heavy (again, Nordic Track felt like it was an aluminum can) and just really felt like the most bang for the buck. Now I get to look around and find the lowest price (going to Craiglist first, lol).

We also discussed the garden and DH said, "Why don't we just look at chain link fencing and use that?" -- shocked the heck out of me. He's always been resistant to fencing it, says it looks icky. So, today we're off to various stores to price out chain link fencing. To be honest, I'll probably still plant flowers around it because it DOES look icky, lol...

When I got home, I finished building an author website and finished a new book video:

And then I was done in.

That was MY day. What were you up to yesterday? Anything interesting? I know Judy had her email account hacked and a letter asking for money was sent to everyone on her address list (which may have included some of you) ... which got me to thinking about beefing up my passwords a little more. Stupid hackers. May the fleas from a thousand camels infest their armpits.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... **snort**... um, not even close. Dear heavens.

Good luck with the treadmill and chain link fence.

I love with you guys did with Wendy's website as well as the book video.

re quiz: My aura is blue - it's me.

Have a good Sunday. After the rain last night, the sun is beginning to peek out.

My aura showed up red. I am not even going to put it down, it was so NOT me, not one thing fit.

Good luck on the chain link fence. And the treadmill.

You could plant some kind of pretty vines where they'd grow up the chain link fence. That would be pretty. :)

I got Blue too!

MIl has a wood fence and another chain link fence. She planted ivy on the wood and monkey grass along the chain link. I admit I think both look nice. *G*
We have a nordic track, but it's older and we've noticed the newer ones are built cheaper. Good luck finding the treadmill you want!
My aura was blue, too. I admit it seems to fit.

I hope you have a good day!

Good luck with the treadmill and fence. I keep looking at elliptical machines. I really want one but the price and lack of space is a problem lol.
