Not that there's a lot to write about. Spring finally sprung, and we took our first long Sunday walk this morning. I used the RunKeeper gps on my phone to track our distance and speed and learned that we walk just under 4.5 miles on our round trip from the house, out to the highway, down through the back entrance of the State School, through the park, over the bridge, into town, past the Post Office, down to Casey's, where we buy the Sunday paper, and then along the highway and back home. My legs are not used to that kind of distance, but it was a lovely morning for a walk.
Speaking of RunKeeper, it's a free app and it's pretty darn handy. I use it to track my morning jogs (which are, unfortunately slower and shorter than I thought they were). It works wonderfully for runnning, walking, and other forms of exercise. Unfortunately, trying to track distance as you mow your lawn makes the gps go all crazypants. But for a free app, it's pretty amazing.
Speaking of apps- I've made a fairly seamless transition to the iPhone already. I love being able to check Facebook and e-mail when I'm on the go, and the camera is nearly as good as the Nikon that I generally use. Unfortunately, I've discovered Angry Birds, which just might be another reason why there has been no blogging, or anything of a useful nature done, this week. Beware: this game will take over your life. And your dreams will be filled with green pigs, mocking you.
And since this is Mother's Day, I've been thinking about my mom, and my two grandmas, all gone now.
Speaking of dominant genes- this is my oldest son, and my father...
Back to Mother's Day...
All three were wonderful women, and I miss them all!
