                  Thursday, July 29 - Rainbow's Consecutive Days of Fitness Day 463


                  running: too hot + 100% humiity = day off

                  push/pull/press/plank: took my father to an appointment with his physician = ~ 10 minutes of pushing a heavy guy in a heavy electric wheelchair. (The chair has powered attendant controls now. But the attendant joystick is hypersensitive. I find it much easier to simply push the chair in tight indoor spaces, and safer to push it in traffic.)

                  yoga: ran out of time to do any yoga

                    Ooh, the butterflies you have been posting are gorgeous!

                      Aren't they such beautiful creatures, NancyTree ?

                      Here is a video about a bird remarkable not so much for its looks (although I think these birds are visually striking too, in their own way) but its sounds:



                      The variety of adaptations life has developed for surviving and thriving on planet Earth is truly remarkable!

                        That is very cool and beautiful!

                          Wow, sounds magical! Like from another world!

                            Wow, I never knew there were birds who could do that! Amazing!
