    • TheLibrarian: glad it worked! I really just wanted to show off Mom's amazing picture!
    • Mom says thank you, LizardFriend95!
    • Basics yesterday and today
    • Walked Liam yesterday and today*
    • *We'll get back to that in a bit
    • It only occurred to me, reading Gandhalfit 's log, that it's Friday the 13th
    • It's been one hell of a day for my poor baby
    • The neighbor was using her weed whacker
    • Brother and I went to the store
    • The mower came by a day early
    • The heat was compounded by humidity and it rained
    • (Which is why the mower came today)
    • And my brother's friend came by for a visit
    • She got nipped on the finger
    • At least it's mostly bruising and she's totally okay with it
    • I tried to get Liam out for a walk before dinner, but the mowing was still happening and I was almost completely ignored
    • After whining all through supper (he was kept outside), I took him out
    • I've started upping our speed to encourage weight loss
    • The first part was so energetic, my watch automatically started recording an "other" workout, not walking
    • The second half ended in jogging!
    • My achilles despise me
    • And yet I still go out every day saying we'll take it easy
    • And then end like this
    • Bees, maybe one of you can help
    • My records show speed and heart rate on a graph
    • Then give an average
    • But the average and the graph are wildly conflicting?
    • Am I somehow reading this wrong?

      • Basics
      • Walked Liam
      • I'm just going to ignore the information besides the graph from now on
      • According to that, our top speed was almost 7mph
      • I definitely feel like it was
      • I cut the walk a bit short, so only 3/4 of a mile
      • My legs are both thankful and not
      • According to the auto function of my watch, making my bed today burned 162 calories
      • That's all the proof I need of screw ups with everything
      • 20 minutes of making a futon
      • (Granted, it was a complete make over, so I had to lift the bed at times and shift my 20lb weighted blanket, but still!)
      • Apparently burned more than double the calories of walking Liam
      • R i g h t...
      • Anyway!
      • Cooked off the last of the cookie dough
      • Refrigerating it did almost nothing!
      • Then made apple crisp
      • Because why not?
      • I had the apples
      • Liam behaves if I'm cooking
      • It all worked out!
      • Tomorrow I'm going to make this!
      • I made it only once before, but I remember it fondly!
      • I have a lone lemon that is just begging to be used
      • So I'm cutting the recipe by a third and enjoying it once again!
      • I am baking so much more recently...

        That recipe looks so good!

          • As easy to make as it is tasty, LizardFriend95!
          • Basics
          • Walked Liam
          • Shorter and slower walk today!
          • Plus!
          • I kept my eyes up the entire time, and Liam didn't jump once!
          • The attempted leading was caused by eye contact!
          • Mowed the lawn
          • Again
          • And it's raining the next few days
          • So it'll grow rapidly
          • Again
          • I'm figuring out the quirks of this machine, though!
          • At my brother's advice, I managed to turn it on by myself!
          • With only three tries at the hardest!
          • (The grass was a bit wet and it jammed a few times)
          • Also found the weed whacker!
          • But the battery's dead...
          • And we can't find the charger...
          • Sadness
          • I overestimated the amount of energy I'd have today
          • The lemon dessert will happen tomorrow
          • I am reminded, in the wake of yesterday's tragedy, just why I love Buffalo
          • Truly, we are the city of good neighbors

            At least all that mowing is good exercise!

            It’s horrible when the news isn’t even shocking anymore. I’m still frustrated with it and angry over it, but it doesn’t surprise me. I hate that feeling

            Comment


              • It is a very good exercise, LizardFriend95!
              • You are very correct; even having this happen so close to me, it's just almost expected at this point
              • Basics
              • Walked Liam
              • He decided to lie down for the first time in a very long time
              • And then rolled into the street because of the hill he was on
              • My goof
              • Then he was a brat
              • I made the lemon pudding!
              • It was very good!
              • Liam thought so, too!
              • He decided to be very not good and snarled at me when I walked in to see him nose deep in a ramekin
              • I went to get the big fence that is taller than him
              • And he followed to see what I was doing!
              • So I was able to lock him out and clean up!
              • I really didn't need that adrenaline drop...

                Oh no!

                  • It all worked out in the end, Anek!
                  • Basics
                  • Walked Liam
                  • Liam barked for almost 2 hours (though he had quiet periods)
                  • So I walked him much later (9)
                  • Not a bad time to walk!
                  • I went straight from the walk to shower yesterday and forgot to stretch
                  • I didn't feel that until the walk today
                  • My legs hate me right now
                  • But I had cake!
                  • That I didn't make myself!
                  • Ibuprofen and sleep should help
                  • Bought all the ingredients to remake a favorite restaurant veggie burger!
                  • Supper tomorrow will be yummy!

                    Sounds delicious, please let us know how it goes I also noticed you've been watching B. Dylan Hollis he is hilarious isn't he? I love his reactions

                      • Basics
                      • Walked Liam
                      • Pup has been in a mood all day
                      • Barked at 3 (in the morning)
                      • Whined at 4
                      • Let him out and he finally stopped whining after I turned my light off
                      • Whined at 7
                      • And again at 7:30
                      • Finally woke me up fully then!
                      • Then he decided to stay awake until almost 10 and tried sleeping outside?
                      • He then slept until 5, which threw both of our schedules off!
                      • Still, he's sleeping now
                      • Thankfully
                      • Veggie burger was a success!
                      • No pictures because it really doesn't look like anything special right now
                      • Most everything was store bought for ease of experimentation
                      • Anyone have a really good black bean burger recipe?
                      • Specifics:
                      • Miso curry aioli, kimchi, black bean burger
                      • The aioli needs some tweaking; I don't love the olive oil with the curry and lemon
                      • The kimchi needs to be cut into smaller pieces, drained, and at least doubled
                      • (If you haven't tried kimchi with a burger yet, you're missing out! So good!)
                      • Overall, it was very tasty
                      • I know what I'll be having for lunch the next few days!
                      • I may be a little obsessed, BlackButler!
                      • I don't know if his opinion on the recipe as he's making it, his reaction when he likes something, or his reaction when he hates it is my favorite!
                      • He makes me laugh every time!
                      • He also has regular TikTok lives that start at 8 pm his time and run for about 2 hours
                      • That's 10 for me (3 am for you, if I'm remembering correctly)
                      • Should I be staying up that late?
                      • No
                      • Do I manage to turn away?
                      • No

                        • Basics
                        • Walked Liam
                        • I'm learning that if I walk as fast as Liam wants (almost 6mph)
                        • He stalls halfway through
                        • Has to lie down and catch his breath
                        • This means a slower walk (closer to 4.5mph)
                        • Which my legs do not mind!
                        • One week until Bernice!!
                        • I misread the schedule, Bees!
                        • Mom and Dad are flying back Thursday and driving home Friday!
                        • Not Friday and Saturday!
                        • Today's my last Thursday!!
                        • To be entirely honest, other than wanting more people around to entertain Liam
                        • I've not missed their presences much
                        • It's so quiet!
                        • I've not used my headphones once!
                        • Made Liam's treats again
                        • I think I've finally figured them out!
                        • They're small and mostly cookie like now!
                        • Watched a video for a rice bread that looks interesting
                        • It's gluten free, so I think I'll try it tomorrow before my sister gets here
                        • Hopefully it'll turn out and she'll like it!

                          • Basics
                          • Walked Liam
                          • Short walk again today
                          • I'm really starting to feel it in my legs
                          • Hopefully the shorter, easier walks and the massage gun will help
                          • Sister and her boyfriend came over and it was a very nice night!
                          • The bread turned out very well and she really liked it!
                          • No pictures because why would I remember to do that?
                          • Puppy is barking
                          • It is loud
                          • My parents should be home early afternoon in one week!
                          • Mom's worried Liam will be snappish when they get here
                          • Silly woman!
                          • All I will have to say is, "Liam, it's Mama!"
                          • He will literally start dancing in place
                          • Yes, I will be recording it

                            Now I have munchies for a veggie burger! (:

                              • There are far worse things to crave, motionaction!
                              • Basics
                              • Walked Liam
                              • Very short walk (little more than half a mile)
                              • But it was very hot
                              • And humid
                              • It still is
                              • The air is sticking to my skin
                              • This is why I hate hot weather
                              • Plus, the church's ground crew came by to spread mulch
                              • And the mower came right after that
                              • So 2 hours
                              • (during which Liam should have been sleeping)
                              • Were very loud
                              • And Liam slept until 5!
                              • That's very late for him!
                              • The massage gun was an excellent idea!
                              • My legs gave me so much less trouble today
                              • Really should have thought of using it sooner...
                              • Bees!
                              • I'm super happy!
                              • Mom wanted to know what souvenirs we'd like
                              • I asked for postcards
                              • Sent from wherever they happened to be
                              • And I got my first one!!
                              • I was wiggling when I opened the mailbox
                              • And jumping when I told my brother
                              • Hand written cards, am I right?!

                              • Is it amusing that I'll be getting postcards from them after they come home?
                              • Yes
