Relationship dynamics are much more vital than these traditional pre-defined norms. As I said every couple knows their expectations, strengths and weaknesses and accordingly they find out what works best for them. I think, for couples today, the key is establishing an equal partnership which includes everything being shared, be it chores, emotional support or finances. To read more please click here
Sorry I missed yesterday. I did not do a recreational walk. But there is good reason.
I now work at a Hotel as Housekeeper. I have to be there at 8 am. With Autumn and Winter coming on sunrise isn’t until 6:30ish. While I get home between 2 pm and 5 pm I am A) Sore and tired B) Have other things to do and C) Soon sunset will be too early to walk after work.
This does not mean I am giving up my daily walks. I will still walk on my days off and on the treadmill. Though pictures of my time/distance will not be as interesting.
Right now though is still a physical adjustment to the work. I ran my walking app only during my shift yesterday, it registered almost 6 miles of walking. My hours yesterday were 8 am to 2:30 pm. The app does not measure all the bending, lifting, stretching and other physcial movement I do.
I have done Housekeeping before. I have been a server. When I worked food service at Target I not only walked but lifted frozen boxes of breadsticks among other things.
I have worked office jobs as well. What I have learned is I need to work the physically demanding jobs. I feel better overall when I do.
Got off subject a bit there. Point of this rambling is I will try and post pictures of daily walks as often as possible…they may be futher apart or not as interesting.
Overcast and cool but no rain. Yay for making it outside to walk though. It was a short walk because I have to be at work now at 8 am.
Not sure if I am headed outside to walk today. Might be a treadmill day.
Either way I wanted to share what is on my walking play list.
“Electric Daisy” Lindsey Stirling
“Elements” Lindsey Stirling
“Shadows” Lindsey Stirling
“Shatter Me” Lindsey Stirling
Yes, I like Lindsey Stirling.
“Rx” Theory of A Deadman This would be one of my ironic choices.
“Closing Time” Semisonic This would be the other.
“Believer” Imagine Dragons
“Rise” Katy Perry
“My Favorite Game” Cardigans
“Start A War” Klergy
“Leader of Men” Nickleback
There you have it. If you thing this list is a bit eclectic you should know I have one big YouTube play list with over 300 songs on it. I have other list which include but are not limited to: 30’s Swing/Big Band, K-Pop, Techno and Classical.
My favorite artists include: Nirvana, Frank Sinatra, Queen, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Garth Brookes, Lindsey Stirling, Katy Perry. Big Bang (who I saw in concert), Guns N’ Roses, Baby Metal (who I also saw in concert), Ozzy Osbourne (my first concert-OzFest) and Mozart, Vivaldi and Gershwin.
Some of my favorite songs include, New York, New York, Come As You Are, Gimme Chocolate, No More Tears, Low Places, Rhapsody in Blue, Fat Bottomed Girls and Bicycle Race, and Four Seasons.
Even if I don’t post pictures today I hope I inspire some of you to expand your musical comfort zone.
Good news my voice is back. Bad news. More rain. Which is good for farmers…sorta…a bit late though.
However! I started a job as Housekeeper at Holiday Inn Express today. Talk about miles walked!
Hoping the rain up so I can get some fresh air walking time in (and pictures) tomorrow.
So I posted on my blog, acliddle.blog, yesterday that was unable to walk due to rain and the migraine that came with it.
Today it is still raining and while I do not feel sick, I have lost my voice, and I am fatigued.
Rather than another missed post I thought I would tell a couple of stories about loose cows.
I am not sure how they got out but in both cases their escapes were precipitated by…well precipitation..rain, and storms. I am not sure if the cows became restless or what but there it is.
The first story: I was driving home from work, on the backroads through the country. Ahead of me I saw three cars in the on coming lane with their flashers on. Then I saw in my lane, heading towards me a what looked to be pregnant cow. I was able to get around her, for she was not to be detoured from her path. Further down the road I saw the possible pasture she had escaped from. Then I noticed in the ditch another cow who had decided to take a walk. This cow did not look pregnant.
The second story: Today I was riding with a friend; we were going into town for errands. We came around a curve, right before a small bridge and there meandering around, were six cows on the side of road. Not sure what pasture they came from. They were gone by the time we were headed back.
Ah Life in the Country.
Today I had nine out of 12 people wave today. I also unintentionally walked a 5K (3.14 miles) and in 50 minutes!
Here are today’s pictures:
