Today I'm grateful for the drive to get things done. I started a new cardio workout this morning, and I can honestly say that Jillian Michaels kicked my rear. Fifteen hours later and my body is still screaming in places that I never knew existed. So much for thinking I was in pretty good shape . . . Tomorrow I'm switching back to Pilates to give my aching muscles a rest.
The sunrise was absolutely gorgeous this morning.
It lasted all of MAYBE five minutes,
and never did truly break over the tree line;
but the colors were phenomenal.
After I got Bayleigh off to school, I did a little housework, and then decided to let my screaming muscles rest, by vegging on the couch with Eli. I think we watched every episode of Umizoomi this morning, before I headed upstairs to download my class materials for Library of Memories. While I was printing off handouts and assignments, I glanced at the little (ginormous) pile of floppy discs sitting next to my desk, and decided to see if anything was really on them, that was worth saving. I was hooked after the first floppy . . . and ended up moving all the files worth saving, to my computer.
Lots and lots of photos from the original home remodel back in 2002-2003, baby pictures of Bayleigh, pictures of my horses, and so many pictures from back before children; thanks to my first digital camera (a 1 mega pixel Sony Mavica that took a floppy disc), I had several old photos worth saving. The photos are mostly poor quality (which is why I stuck mainly with my Pentax 35mm) but they are memories none the less, and maybe someday I can salvage some of them.
I just have a few more floppy's to go through and then I can pitch this huge pile and move on to the CD's. But I HAD to take a break and play a game of Monopoly with my oldest. She wasn't too happy about that last move, but in the end I'm sure she finished it out in her favor, while I fixed supper.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day and I have a few more photos to experiment with tonight. So I'm off!
(*I can't really pin point a favorite today . . . none of them are really stellar, but I think I'll go with #3.)
