Day 326: Good hike and swim

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Hello everyone!

I hope you are having a good week so far! Thanks for all of the nice comments on my last blog about my health. I just passed my 2-year anniversary since the surgery. Interestingly, I didn't even think about it on the anniversary. I think that is s good thing :).

My highlight yesterday was a short hike and swim in the ocean for 15 minutes. The water appears to be getting colder now, but it still felt refreshing. My son didn't come with me this time, but there were many other people on the beach. When he doesn't come, I often just swim very close to shore in water that is only 3 feet deep to stay safe. And I would only go in if there are other people around. The ocean can be too unpredictable to mess with on your own.

Over the weekend, we drove to my mother-in-law's house and visited with her and my brother and sister-in-law. It was great to see them after not seeing any of them for a while due to the virus. We had a fairly healthy meal together. I had my first soda in about 6 months.

Are you doing anything interesting this week?

    Seeing family is always a plus to me. This staying in all the time is really hard on mental health. Glad you had this time. ((HUGS))

    I had a diet root beer last Friday night at a hotdog roast with friends. It was nice to be social distancing outdoors and still be able to visit with friends we haven't seen for awhile. I think you are very wise to always swim in the ocean when there are others around, and to stay close to shore when it's needed. My friend lost his wife to a rip tide several years back and another woman she was swimming with drowned also. It was a tragedy for sure. Please have fun but be safe.

    Yes, it's a good sign when you don't think about the anniversary of something that happened and I'm so happy to hear that you are doing so well. And I think it's wise of you to keep safety in mind when you are swimming in the ocean. You're right, it can be rather unpredictable

    I visited my oldest daughter today, haven't seen her since July. And will be visiting with my son, daughter-in-law and 8 month grandson this weekend. Can't wait. He has changed so much since the first time I got to meet him at 5 months.

    Pilates Reformer tomorrow morning - it's my favorite kind of exercise!

    Oh, and I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do for us and all the encouragement you and your staff provide. I'm so very happy I found SparkPeople!

    You are wise to have respect for the ocean. It can, indeed, be very unpredictable.

    We started out the week with a 20 degree drop in temperature along with heavy winds and rain. Then, today it was beautiful, so we continued with our walks. The Fall colors are beautiful and I can feel a cool snap in the breeze, but will be out every day allowed to me before Winter hits.

    emoticon on the 2 year anniversary and may your health continue to be excellent.

    emoticon for reaching your 2-year milestone. I live in northern Michigan and the cold, wet weather is upon us. I have to seize tomorrow to mow the yard and mulch some leaves. I spent 2 days raking pine needles. Fall clean-up is not my favorite time of year, but at least it's not snowing yet!

    I am trying to adjust to Fall, I had my light box on today for awhile. I pretty much spent the entire summer outdoors, smoke and all, LOL So now I need to start some fun inside projects.

    WTG on being super careful with the ocean. Glad it was still enjoyable though. Gosh, two years, that is stellar! Continue on being safe, we need you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
