Pictures: Swainson’s Hawk. This one is trying to enjoy it’s meal.
This Hawk just wish the guy with the clicking thing would go away ❗
Exercise: I want to and feel like I could but the knees are going for a break, no walking today 🙂
Out: I got out and about for a spell today, went into the little city of Blythe and shopped a bit and dropped my used motor oil off at a car parts store and they give me a dollar for it 🙂 , after taken my Name, address and phone mumber. So now the government knows when I change my oil 😯
Bird: Here is a Swainson’s Hawk my friend spotted for me shortly after getting here to Storrie Lake. It was a long shot.
This sunset was in Why, AZ about 7 years ago.
Blood Work: I had my blood work done this morning at the VA Clinic and I’ll check back to see if I need to do anything later this week.
Exercise: I have been laying off a bit because one; the doc wanted me to before my blood work and two; my knee wanted me to slack up too 😦 .
Walking: My friend (Jeanne) that I met here earlier and that is such a good walker is back and hopefully my knees will let me do some walking with her. She is a great walking partner.
Caught up …………well somewhat anyway. I have at least got all my computer hardware working. Still adding software here and there. All the main stuff is in. I have a week to play with the desktop and by then I should know whether I want to upgrade the laptop or not. I still have a few things on the hardware side I will try with on the desk top. One of them is when I boot Windows 8 is that it gives me a choices between Windows 8 and Windows 7 ( I left Windows 7 on the other hard drive) (added a new hard drive for Windows 8) Soooo ………… Windows 8 know that Windows 7 is there and I need to see what happens when I remove the Windows 7 drive. Also I have not added Ubuntu to the mix ………… yet. So some stuff to try yet.
Today I will wait and do my exercise a little later today, when it is warmer.
Update 3pm; I got a good bike ride in and did some good stretching, and I feel well! The computer is starting to come along well now and just kind of doing things as I need them.
The weather has been fine here in Deming. I remember the first time I come here in 2007 Oct and Nov was pretty cold.
I got a couple of small chores done today, one: I got my house batteries check and added a little water and two; I also took care of my mail forwarding service, now paid up till next July. The only big bill I will have to pay this winter is my truck insurance, which is due in Feb, so about Jan, will be time to pay.
I have not talk about typing any of late, but I am pleased that I am doing pretty fair at typing, never going to be fast but it least it don’t take me all day to make a sentence any more, LOL. I am content with it. I do just well enough to get by, and over time I have gotten a little better with my speed.
Change up the bird of the week, this Swainson’s Hawk was enjoying it’s meal when I took this shot.
