Little Bit of This – Little Bit of That

There is seldom much going on around here in the dead of winter and January is about as dead as it can get.  🙂 We’ve had snow (not too much so far this year) and we’ve had cold & windy days.  Today has been a lovely break in the cold with a current temperature of… Continue reading Little Bit of This – Little Bit of That

I Went for a Walk

Chester and I go for 2 walks every day, but the last few days, I have been trying to beat my steps from the days before.  To do that today, I had to go on a longer walk. This started innocently enough on Saturday.  I had a shift to work at a location fairly close… Continue reading I Went for a Walk

Click here to see the video from… Continue reading Strong Kids
