Had tea with my neighbor, yesterday.Collapse )

I just made eight trips to the compost with the delicata squash we grew last summer. I thought I recalled that we harvested around 60, but it must have been more because even if I only took five in each trip that would be 40, and there are 17 left, and I know I gave away quite a few and I think it was a couple of months there that we ate two squash every week. Moral: we won't plant seven delicata squash vines again.

Of course we probably won't ever have to plant them again at all, because they'll be growing feral all over the property after we spread this compost,. and probably on the neighbors' properties as well because the racoons like them. Our first one grew feral from compost we'd bought.

And why have I saved the last 17 and didn't just take them to the compost with the rest? Well, they're not rotten yet, and that first delicata we ever had we didn't even start to eat until March, so they're probably still edible. Also, I postholed up to my knees in the snow numerous times during that eight trips out there and my knees are not too damned happy with me at the moment. It's lovely outside, 50 degrees or so, but that makes the snow treacherous.

We're listening to our local college radio station (WMPG), and the guy who's hosting the punk/new wave show just sang the whole weather report to the tune of "Heart of Glass." He actually did a pretty good job. ;)

Mostly I've been going along at an incline of 6 degrees and speed of 3mph on the treadmill. I upped it a little in the last few minutes this day because I was feeling okay and my heart rate wasn't too high. I might be ready to start carrying weight soon.

For the 7th and 8th I'm copying Eor's distance, because he pointed out that getting credit for only one excercise encourages a person to only do that one exercise, and mono-exercising isn't good for your body. So starting 'yesterday' I'm giving myself credit for included warm up and cool down walks, and a walking equivelent of the time on the stationary cycle. I did damned good on the stationary cycle this day, for me (I hate that thing) - 20 min. Especially good considering that I didn't have my mp3 player (battery died). I did thinky thoughts about fic, instead, which surprised me because I haven't been able to think about writing for a long long time.

Today, Derien travelled 2.6 miles on the journey from Bag End to Rivendell.

Kept a stone's throw to the left of the road, slower going.

A total of 35.8 miles along the way.

No exercise entry for this day because the security guard who was on turned me away saying I wasn't on the list of people allowed to use the fitness room. And I was pissed, let me tell you. How my attitude has changed. Was a time I'd have been relieved not to be allowed to exercise. ;)

(Eor just told me that he adds in what he would have gotten for walking the time he was on the stationary cycle and when walking warmup and cooldown, which I have not been doing, so I've been falling further behind all the time. I may end up going back and editing these posts, but not today.)
