Weather : Man, we have had a run of cloudy days this week. I’ll be glad to see them go away.
Update; The afternoon has came with sunshine and it is nice to see it back!

Exercise: Walking it was, I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.21mi, time: 39:17, pace: 17:49min/mi, speed: 3.37mi/h. Today I at least didn’t lose the track 🙂

Rain today: Lots of rain happening today. As I slept last night and woke now and then I could hear the rain hitting the roof and when I got up this morning it was still raining. It looks and feels like it may be here for a while.

Exercise: Well, I did do my walking today but I messed around and loss my tracking on it. Had it all tracked and than did a restart on my phone before saving it. Seeing as I’m not paying for service right now the data is off so I must connect to WiFi to upload my maps. I was having a bit of trouble connecting to my WiFi and decided to do a restart forgetting that my track was not saved yet. Anyways I did my two miles 🙂 so all is well.

Weather: Today’s weather gives me lots of clouds.

Friends: I have friends stopping by today and it’ll be nice to see them.
Update; Had a nice visit with my friends Jeanne, Nancy and Barbara 🙂 Links to all thier blogs over on the right side of the my blog.

Phones: I still have my Home Connect phone (on verzion network) for my main phone and I now have a Straight talk phone which I can let the service go when I like, such as when I’m in a area that is not covered. That will probably be the the case this summer. Anyway I have been enjoying the Smart phone from Stright Talk for the last two months and today the service runs out and I’m not going to renew right away for two reasons, one I want to see how much trouble it is to reactivate after letting it drop, and two I want to reset the the billing cycle to a better pattern for myself. One of the things bad about doing this is I think I will lose my number each time but seeing as I use the Home Connect as the main phone it won’t be a big deal. I like carrying the Smart Phone for a data device more than a phone anyway. It is nice to have data in your pocket when you a want it.

Exercise: My usual short walk. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.18mi, time: 38:42, pace: 17:43min/mi, speed: 3.39mi/h.

Pictures: Back to birds 🙂 Today’s birds are Phainopepla. These shots are not the best in the set of that day, but sometimes I like to pick the not so good ones and work them in Photoshop just to see what I can do. Not to bad but they where not the best to start with, I tried 🙂 I love the eyes on these birds.

Exersice: Just another little walk today. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.12mi, time: 38:37, pace: 18:12min/mi, speed: 3.30mi/h.

Nippy : It was a bit nippy out this morning, enough so that I ran the heat for an hour or two, and that felt nice and toasty.

Truck and flat: I decided not to go out today, my truck tire has not went down(went flat yesterday) so I’ll just wait till I go out for others things to get it fixed.

Flat tire

Pictures: Sunrise Welton, AZ.

A view from Wheelers Peak, NM.

Chores : Yep, today was chores day, so a lot of the day spend in Blythe getting things done.

Truck maintenance : While out shopping today I had a flat tire on the truck, so I just aired it up to get my groceries home seeing as I had meats I had just brought and didn’t want to leave them laying around inside while the tire was fixed. Tomorrow I’ll have to get it fixed. I checked it out when I got back to the RV and it looks like my valve stem is messed up, so I’ll have it replaced. Lucky for me it was one of the dually tires and I didn’t have to change it 🙂

Exercise: Short walk today. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.12mi, time: 38:37, pace: 18:12min/mi, speed: 3.30mi/h.
