Barbie: Thank you for creating our October thread. A new thread is always a gift.
Rebecca: I love the Pumpkin Spice gas choice, but I don’t think the cars would be appreciative. Wouldn’t it be nice to get coffee service at the station when we’re filling our tanks! :bigsmile:
Heather: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! We’re the same age again.
Mary: I’m glad that you’ve decided to take Shep along with you. The two of you are bonded and need one another. (((HUGS)))
M in OZ: I hope that your dry spring doesn’t lead to a drought. Enjoy the longer days. I miss them already.
Barbara: I did what you suggested and did give them a password. I hope they never ask for a change. :grumble:
Pip: I love the pooch nose in fall leaves, too.
Here are my September goals and comments. They always look familiar because they work so well for me.
September 2018 Resolutions:
1. Log every bite and swallow. Done!
2. Cardio exercise at least 3 days a week. Work on strength and stamina. Done. This has been a combination of yoga, walking & working on physically active projects.
3. Have fun every day. Done!
4. Drink at least 3 glasses of water a day. Done!
5. Monitor sleep. Average 7 or more hours of sleep nightly. Done. This goal has been so good for my health and well-being!
6. Avoid alcohol. I’ve done a little sipping. :embarrassed:

Dee- sorry to hear about your rib! Barbie has great advice and yes, life does deal strange challenges!
Mary - sorry I'm late but great letter! Will be interesting to see their response. Good proofreaders in this group. Don't blame you for wanting to take Shep along! A girl and her dog...
Viv - Leah is a cutie! Hoping for the best with your Dad's doc visit.
Barbara AHMOD - hope you are continuing to feel good and your floor exercises go well. By the way, the international broadcast we get with the "leaf" antenna isn't from Canada, it's called "NHK World-Japan". The newscasters speak great English, and there are some interesting gardening and food broadcasts also in English or subtitled. How this station gets transmitted to a repeater in our little county, I'll never know. We sometimes watch the SUMO matches! Rebecca - can you access this? There might be an app for it to view on your tablet.
Margaret - loved that home tour description. Closest thing I've come to that was touring one of the "Ball" mansions when I attended Ball State U in Muncie IN. So neat to see how the houses were designed back then, and the quality was outstanding. Loved hearing that F Scott Fitzgerald story. WOW!
Machka - how thrilling to see your DH's apple tree budding. Now, I'm curious. If someone were to get a dormant tree from the US, would it get mixed up season-wise if planted in your area? Maybe if it's truly dormant it won't care. My gravenstein has a branch that blossoms every fall so there's a mixed up one, lol.
October goals... keep on with what I'm doing. Lower carbs, a day or two of intermittent fasting per week. Keep on with the 3x per week strength training.
September was a review of the benefits of lower carb eating and intermittent fasting. So this month, I want to investigate cardio equipment and/or exercises I can do at home when the rainy season hits. Also will be on the lookout for possible new activities/organization I can join and just do my introverted minimal, lol, in case the two I belong to right now aren't for me anymore.
Before we moved to this neighborhood, I attended a very small Methodist church (attendance around 25 each week, most of them seniors) in a tiny town. Between that and volunteering at the food bank, I had a few treasured friends and acquaintances. I really, really miss that and haven't been able to find a new church home. It might be time to start looking again.
Happy October ladies!

I watch NHK all the time on TV. There is a show Journeys In Japan, a travel show that's really interesting! I watch their general news all the time. Their weather portion covers the whole world in 5 minutes! Its interesting! Their cooking shows are nice, but I usually have the sound down, because the hosts talk in English so slow its kinda annoying. So I'm thinking its for the Japanese housewife, learning English👍.
