I visit my gym
every Monday. I tried to go every other Monday but the sheer weight of the flatbed cart almost did me in. I literally could not push it over the speed bump in the parking lot and of course when I finally did get it over, everything on the front of the cart fell off.
So there I was in the parking lot, on a blistering hot day, reloading my cart and cursing up a storm while people drove by with smirky smiles on their faces.
It was then I decided to workout every Monday and have lighter loads to deal with. It’s been a better workout. Workout? Yes, that’s right. My gym is Costco.
I have a paid membership and everything, and what other gym will sell you a giant hot dog and soda for a buck fifty? Although, I almost canceled my membership when the company switched from Coke to Pepsi. Puhleeze… Pepsi?! Ick.
In my last post I told you about the benefits a traveler can find by checking into a B&B. I thought I’d turn the page and tell you what the average day of an innkeeper is like. Although I’d be happy (kind of) if it did, the daily routine of this innkeeper does not include eating M&M’s and watching television.
It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want –
oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
I have been nominated for a Super Sweet Blogging Award and I must confess I have never heard of said award but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t super pleased to have been nominated by Natasha at Tasha’s Travel Troves. Tasha has a powerful story, one that should be read and admired. So, thank you Natasha!
You know that feeling of “been there, done that” but you can’t quite place your finger on it? As I was formatting this post I kept thinking, “Have I already said this?” Turns out, I have. The original draft was still sitting in my file folder. Forgetting that I had actually published it on the blog months ago, I was giddy at finding it; a little like finding a dollar on the sidewalk!
A few days ago in this post, I made mention of the fact that Ashland takes Halloween very seriously! It rained for several hours today and it was still sprinkling when the parade got under way, but then the storm broke and the rain stopped. It was as it should be! I use the term “parade” loosely because really, it’s a crazy free-for-all that brings out the whole town in costumed celebration. At the head of the parade each year is a group of percussionist-playing local citizens who take Halloween to the next level.
