Tuesday Check-In

Hey y'all, just thought I'd check in and let you know what I've been up to and how my Mother's Day went!

Exercise has consisted of...

  • Ran 58 minutes...this was a beautiful 5 mile slow run/walk
  • Walk 17 minutes...a walk with my hubby around the small loop

  • Played Frisbee with the family...our new obsession 

  • Ran 50 minutes...an awesome 4.33 mile slow run/walk 

 Mother's Day was simply beautiful and peaceful.  The entire family just spent time visiting most of the day.  I woke up and spent some time just getting ready for the day, then my son made me breakfast and coffee.  Since I eat mostly vegan/vegetarian, breakfast was a heated up breakfast biscuit...but it was yummy!  My family sat around talking and laughing, sans T.V. This is a big deal...the T.V. is always or almost always on, but we just didn't feel the need Sunday.  After my oldest son got here we all went out and watched a movie, Oblivion...it was awesome.  Right before the movie my kids presented me with my mothers day gifts..my daughter made me an adorable little mini plant out of paper and a beautiful realistic flower..she is very creative and the detail is amazing...she can make amazing things out of some paint and paper.

This sign was made with a C&C machine...I love it, we are all (the kids and I) going to paint this and they will all (4 of them) sign it on back.  I am also going to paint their names on the curves of the petals. We will then put it in my garden out front.  

I am please with how well our day went and how calm it was...at the end of the day we all went and played Frisbee in the parking lot at the end of our street, I won the award for the most bad throws and most epic catches. Winner winner chicken dinner!  Frisbee is our new family fun-time we try to do 3x a weekOur four kids are all older 19-13 so it is a blast! I hope that all you mothers had a fantastic day!

"Limitations only exist if you let them"

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
