I have lots of Humming Birds around now with the Rufous and Calliope Hummers migrating through. The Black-Chinned Hummers that are here all summer are having a hard time getting to the feeders with so many birds being on the feeders at once. I have two feeders out and sometimes I will have as many as 25 hummers at a time buzzing around the two feeders.

More rain: Yep, we got rain yet again today.

Night folks

Weather: Had a great rain yesterday, got some water in the ground. Last year I did not enjoy the rain as much, seeing as I was not hooked up to electric, this year I kind of enjoy having the rain. Here in the southwest rain is not a thing you get a lot of.

Exercise: I good bike ride today and I remembered to take my app MapMyRide with me too πŸ™‚ I rode with MapMyRide! Distance: 12.10mi, time: 01:10:10, pace: 5:48min/mi, speed: 10.35mi/h.

Sins of yesterday

Birds: Gold Finches it is.

Exercise: Took me a good bike ride this morning, about 12 miles, added my stretching when I returned. As usual I forgot my MapMyRide app 😦

Trying to make up for my sins of yesterday o_O So today’s big job will be to keep my hungry buds in check, after all that rich food yesterday. I wish that I had remember to have some milk yesterday, I miss milk. Maybe on my next bad day.

Weather: There is a good thunderstorms going on just now and the rain is making me sleepy. We are getting a good amount of rain with this storm too.

Update to weather; It is 7pm and it has rain much of the day, a good thing. I think the rain will make me sleep well tonight πŸ™‚

Night folks

Bad Day, food day that is

Bad Day: Today is my bad day, meaning that I very well eat all the bad stuff I want! Tomorrow I will have to start paying for my sins 😦 rightfully so. I just got to have a bad day once in a while, but they are far in between, thank goodness, because if they were not long apart I would be as big as a bear … again!

New Links: I have added a couple of new Links to the right side of the page, MakeUseOf. and Twit, Both great tech links.

Rescue Mission : One of the other host found a Canada Goose that had both legs wrap tightly with fishing line. The Ranger, the other Host and I caught it ( I think we where lucky to catch it) and cut the line away. It would have surely lost it’s legs if we had not done that, hopefully it’ll do well now. Fishing people, please be careful with you line.

Weather : It has been overcast and we have had some rain but still not near as much as needed.

Exercise: I rode the bike a good hard 6 miles this morning and I ride more later today and maybe get in a good stretch.

Update; Stretch done.

Night folks

Exercise: I rode the bike for 6 miles this morning at a good speed and will probably ride more later on today. Added my stretching too. Now to find the motivation to lift on my dumb-bells for a little while ……

Update, I did do a little with the Dumb-bells, not much but a little something.

It is lazy Sunday

Bird: For this weeks bird ….. it will be the American Gold Finch.

Perhaps you can tell that at one time, I was really interested in birds?! LOL. I still do some bird watching but not near as much as I once did. Birding is a thing that takes a lot of time and patience and is ofter a lone habit, because most folks won’t take the time to do birding. For me, I got to be in the move for it, have lots of time on my hands and be in a place that has lots of birds. Here in the park there are lots of birds but my time is kind of split up in a manner that don’t leave me big enough time spaces ( at least as much as I like) for my birding. Still …. I do sneak in a little time now and then.

Lazy: This morning I go up at 5:30 to open the gate to the park but then when I got back to the RV I lay back down till 7:30, just being super lazy 😦 . There is just something about a Sunday morning that makes me lazy.

More connected

I think that my tablet has cause me to become more connected (neither good or bad, just is) . I find myself reaching for the tablet often, it’s just so easy to get on the internet with it. A Quick check for email in the morning and also in the evening, I often watch a podcast in the evening just after going to bed, it puts me to sleep πŸ™‚ Alone with the smart phone’s internet connection it sure makes a handy little device. It makes for a great search tool, “where is this” or “what is that” and so on. If I wonder where a bicycle shop is, I simply pick up the smart phone or the tablet and ask Google, if I hear something on TV and I don’t know what it is, I ask Google. So handy.

This refers to yesterday because I wrote it last night; Today has been just about too close, to being too warm. Got up to something a little over 80 today. Of course this is the evening before this post I’m sitting around the RV and it is just about too warm in here. I do like the warm better than the cold though. The desert night will cool it off quick enough.

Well, it is Saturday night and TV sucks tonight. So I’m here trying to figure out something to do with myself. Perhaps I’ll set outside and enjoy the cool weather of the night.

930 p.m. Saturday night, the evening has cooled off nicely. Maybe a podcast or Ted show …………Β  should put me to sleep.

By the way, all the above was done with voice recognition and the Nexus 7. Had to do a few corrections.

OK, it is Sunday and today is a little cooler with overcast skies. Cooler …………. but no solar happening(sunshine), still I’ll be fine on power. I get just enough solar power to keep the batteries going on these kind’s of day, but I cannot use much power during the day. 3:40 pm; Little update here, the temperature got to 80 today, but still it did not feels as hot with the clouds covering the sun.

This morning I took off to the laundry mat for a couple of loads, so there is one chore done. Later, I took a bike ride of 10 miles with a fair pace, and I may add a little walk to the mix here in a bit. It look and feels like it would be a good day to walk.

3:40 pm; I did take a walk and when I got back I did my hamstring stretching. So I am set for today. Tomorrow I will be off to Yuma to shop and visit with friends, so no exercise or stretching for tomorrow. I look forward to visiting with my friend.

OK, enough forΒ  today, later.

P.S. Almost forgot to post a new bird of the week. So here it is, a Goldfinch and I am not sure where I took the picture.
