The company is doing this great walking race that starts on Monday, you put together teams of up to 10 folks and record how many miles you walk each day. The first team that makes it (on paper) to Cypress, CA and back wins.
The walking only counts for your breaks, lunch and any walking you do outside of work. So walking to and from the bathroom/lunchroom doesn't count. They've got it figured out if you walk three laps around the building that will equal one mile and if the weather is bad you can walk inside the center part of the building, eleven laps equal a mile. Yesterday a friend and I walked three miles during our lunch break and that was really putting on the speed. We figure we can do about five miles a day at that rate. Hmm. we'll see I guess.
We're not sure what kind of bird these little naked babies are. They are down in the shed.
Last night Chyann and I went to put the horses away and I realized I never put any shots of Shrek up. He is a huge stuffed animal the kids got from some free box at a garage sale. He had a tear in his neck leaking all his stuffing out, I sewed him up and he promptly got stuffed into a closet. During all my cleaning this last month he was found and I threw him away. The Hubby rescued him from the trash and put him up in the back yard as a kind of scare crow.
The horses will occasionally be standing by him and it will look like Shrek is riding them.
And we found a new lilac bush just growing randomly in the back yard area.
Imagine my surprise when I went to one of my favorite blogs, The Giggle Fest. and see that she has given me an AWARD!
The rules are simple. Post the award, Tell who gave you the award, and pass it on to five other bloggers.
Of Course I must pass it on to Krissy at Transplanted Alaskan. She is my best buddy from Alaska and the one who got me interested in blogging.
Jenny at Crochet Life. We share a love of lilacs! Not to mention books.
Lisa at TainterTurtles. Has the sweetest HUGE cats and is a bicycle enthusiast.
Patty over at PAK-ART Alaska. She is a wonderful artist, posts pictures of my old home town and just happens to be Krissy's beloved sister!
and last, but certainly not least
Lisa at Spring Peeper Farm. She is a Canadian gal who with her family raise animals, make soap and have a lot of fun.
No big plans for us this Memorial Day weekend. Although I will get the garden planted and lawn mowed - probably :)
