6,000 steps - easy day today!
Just enough calisthenics to wake the neighbors.


  1. Push-ups, sit-ups, still can't do a chin-up...
    Same ol', same ol'....

  2. Hi Anne, Happy Valentine's Day!
    Love the pics!

  3. Thanks, ya'll!
    And Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

  4. Hmm, great minds think alike, I had poached eggs for breakfast too. Happy valentine's day

  5. The gorgeous flower photos remind me of...

    "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.

  6. Oh! Forgot... William Wordsworth

  7. Flowers and fog make me think of where I live.

  8. I'm having flashbacks of 3rd grade gym, the Presidential Fitness Test... couldn't climb the rope, couldn't do a chin-up. Nope, not a push-up either. No upper-body strength. Kick-ball, dodge-ball, bike-riding, yep, yep, yep!

  9. Your photography is absolutely amazing. Love your comments along the way, too.

    Now I'm hungry for a poached egg!

  10. Jo, SheZug - poached eggs are all that!

    DHG - yep, yep, yep ditto-
    Now the challenge is that I'm turning into a "gym rat."
    It keeps me off the streets (of my mind.)
    No longer cruising for another proverbial bruisin'....

    Anonymous - a beautiful poem.
    Starts with "loneliness"... ends with "the bliss of solitude."
    Reminds me of my last trip to LA.
    Flowers everywhere.

    Unknown Mami - aren't you from "The Golden State"?
    And aren't you also from California?
    Love me some California.
    In a few short weeks I have a date with a pelican!
    Let's see if he recognizes me....

  11. Belated Valentines! Beautiful pics. Love them!

    Breakfast looks fantastic. Good thing I'm eating lunch.

  12. It was so nice to see color today, Anne! I'm soooo tired of white and more white.

  13. White on rice in a snow storm... literally...
    I'm tired too!

  14. Hey Anne, those poached eggs look good, Glad you are having fun with all your photography....whats that about a pelican....lol. gone over this Canadians head. take care.

  15. Cinner - sorry to leave you out of the loop!
    When I was in California a year ago,
    a pelican went bird-crazy all over me.
    Just then, someone took a picture.
    It was the first time I saw myself as being so heavy.
    I felt sick and ashamed.
    It's the ultimate "before" picture!


I would love to hear from you!
