She’s done it again…the adorable and most lovely Hagemor has bestowed upon me yet another award and I must admit, all these sweet gestures and awards are giving me a big head…I’m really begininng to think I’m something special- so thank you my dear friend for making me feel so special!!
Pretty isn’t it? Since moving to Norway I’ve discovered the importance of recycling and seperating the trash so that things can be recycled but I must admit I do not know that I’m such a green person otherwise environmentally…I love my diesel car and would have a giant suburban in a heart beat if I could…but the other aspect of this award is someone who has an appreciation for the nature around them and with seven dogs in the house I’m in the nature a LOT….take today for example, my darling neighbour and I took an hour long corebar exercise class, then we had a nice lunch at a local cafe in Brumunddal. I had a salad which wasn’t THAT exciting but edible and semi healthy and then we came home and walked the dogs in two groups for two hours in the pouring down rain…I have to admit, I was going to skip it after the cafe visit when I saw the rain but my exercise partner said, “aww, we’re not going to let a little rain scare us from exercise are we?” I was thinking…um…yes….but I said “no….of course not”…then I said,” well”…..then I laughed and said ” no just kidding”…then I said aloud, “well not really but I will walk if you’re gonna walk” My friend just laughed at me…she knows it’s my underlying internal nature to be LAZY but she loves me anyways and is such a motivation to get moving even when I don’t want too. That’s the best part about having someone to work out with, they motivate you even when you don’t want too!! She was even late for work but called them and told them she would be 15 minutes late. I apologized for not having the energy to fly up that last hill to my house but she said I had nothing to apologize for she could have chosen to not go but she wanted too. She’s great, love that lady! ;-))
Now I’m sitting here totally soaked after my workouts today, 3 hours isn’t something I can do every day but sure going to try when I can to get in as much exercise as I can. The dogs take two hours if we’re going to take everyone on an honest to goodness walk…but on work days we don’t always get so much time, so I’m enjoying it when I can.
Now I’m going to jump in the shower and get some dry clothing on, the dogs are all sleeping contently around me and life is good. First I need to pass this award out and I think Lady Fi at On A Quirky Quest deserves this for all her walks around the beautiful lake near her home with her adorable Golden Retriever Oscar, and Kelli at Mads and Kelli for all her green iniative since moving to Denmark…anyone willing to ride around in the rain on a bike to save the earth deserves a green award!
Have a super Friday everyone, if we get a break in the weather I’ll try and bring the camera along on one of the walks so you can see the amazing climb we have on this one part of the walk…it’s pretty amazing..I’ll give ya a hint…it’s worse then this..
This little monkey, Bently, ALWAYS gets in front of me when we are climbing up these various paths and STOPS!! Ugh, you just don’t do that man…it’s not cool!! hahahaha!!
Until next time my friends…(OH and guys…thank you so much for you advice and sharing your experiences with me about gall stones. I’m going to do everything I can to make this NOT a problem in my life, so thanks for your support!)
