11 bags fit into the trunk of my Passat. Easily fit 20 bags in the car. Now have a nicely mulched side of the house and the 2010 landscaping is done. Now I just need to mow and work on the grass!
Today we celebrate Memorial Day, honoring our military men and women who died in battle and marking the unofficial beginning of summer.
Summer came early with many hot, hot days in Minnesota. We’ve already had a handful of days in the upper-80’s and 90’s. I go back on the 1st for my follow-up on Lyme Disease and hopefully permission to run again and that my body is disease free. I just watched a video about Bart Yasso, Comrades, and Lyme Disease. I haven’t really been doing much besides biking for workouts and frankly a 3 mile ride to work isn’t much of a workout. But this past week I biked almost 28 miles. I was going to aqua jog on Tuesday night, but the pool was full and the lady said I couldn’t aqua jog, but I could join her water aerobics class. I did and actually got a pretty good core workout.
Monthly miles –
Biking – 134 miles
Run Around All Named Bodies of Water in Minneapolis
This whole not being able to run thing is still cramping my style on this one.
Read the Entire Bible in a Year
Another good month. Almost half-way through.
Read a Book a Month
I didn’t start a new book until last weekend, so it was a good thing that it was short. It was actually a thought provoking read. Henri Nouwen has written a lot of though provoking books, this month was In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership.
Now that we’ve been getting our CSA again, I’ve been at least posting a picture of that on my personal blog. I’ve struggled to have the free time to keep this blog updated, even though it just celebrated its 3rd birthday! My 365 blog is still going strong. It is a creative challenge some days when I realize at the end of the day I haven’t taken a picture yet. My hyperlocal Midtown Phillips News blog is still going well. I’d like to have the free-time to develop it some more, but it is good. I was told it was too conservative for our neighborhood – which is odd since it is mostly aggregating news from other sources!
Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis is back in the most popular post for the month by almost twice as much. Google blows away all other referral sources!
This week’s ONE POST is It’s time for… (a discussion about shoes).
An amazing show about the civil war in Liberia. Peace comes from forgiveness. Very thought provoking. A nice tie-in with Somalia’s war at the end.
The Hub branded their bike racks with stickers. I couldn’t get a shot of the sticker with my Freewheel bottle to work out. We’ve got some great bike shops around!
