You don't have to travel...

Last week, Heather, being the instigator she is, decided that we should start doing other stuff than walking. Since we can't always get together, we decided to start working out together via text. So every week day evening at 5:30, we text each other workouts. After 3 days we are up to:

-- 30 pushups
-- 50 crunches
-- 50 jumping jacks (or 100 1/2 jacks)

It's actually a lot of fun, and the lovely Miss Taz in PA will be joining us this week. If you want to join our little text work outs, drop me an email ( with your cell phone number, and I'll text you at 5:30 to remind you to GOYB and DROP AND GIVE ME 30!

On a related note, due to scheduling conflicts, we skipped our SOS walk today, but I got to tell you, there are still some really neat things to see, even if you just GOYB and walk around outside your house. Cool stuff just in my yard:

A black and yellow argiope. It was very cool, she was doing something with those little tiny appendages in the front, it almost looked like she was grooming herself. I actually never even noticed that they had those little thingies before, I am not sure what they are, will have to do some research.
This was bizarre -- in case you can't make it out, it is a wasp carrying around some kind of caterpillar or worm.

This was all in 5 minutes outside my house. Remember my mantra - "Doing SOMETHING is better than doing NOTHING!" Write back and tell me what's outside your house today! And don't forget to join us at Riverview on Tuesday.
