You might be wondering why I have a picture of two turkey vultures in the upper right corner of this page. I took it a few weeks ago when those two were perched in a dead tree on the other side of our garage. They would show up mid-afternoon and stay into the evening. They would just sit there, watching--for what, I'm not sure. Maybe for my husband or me to stop moving? After a couple of days, that was it. They moved on.
In my last post many months ago, I made a vow to start exercising more. I have, but it's still not as much as I should be doing. Time has a way of getting away from me, so I came up with the brilliant (in my own mind) idea of working exercise into my daily routine. When I walk one of our dogs and s/he wants to stop and sniff, I do isometrics while I wait. While waiting for the microwave's buzzer to tell me my food or beverage is done, I do leg lifts at my kitchen island. When I set dog bowls on the floor or have to pick up something I drop, I do a squat or two. On first waking in the morning, I lie in the bed and do leg lifts and stretches--not every morning but most of them. Added to my walks and the occasional exercycle ride, it's better than nothing. I'd love to hear any ideas you have about how to work exercise into life because I need all the help I can get!
Another thing I would love is if any of you have recipes to share that would make good bar food. I'm working on a menu for the Top Shelf to post on my Lolli Powell page, and I'd love to link from the food listing to the recipe. Drink recipes are welcome, too. And if you come up with a food or drink that I know Ricki and the Top Shelf crew would love to serve, I'll name a character after you (assuming you want me to, that is). Send any recipes to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
