Enjoying the Heat

I’ve seen a lot of comments recently remarking on the return of the heat. Most of them seem to be longing for the return of that nice cool fall weather. Not me!! I know that all too soon that nice cool fall weather (that turns into real cold winter weather) will be making its return for good. That will be the end of shorts and open windows and working up a sweat on a morning walk around the block. Summer weather, you can stick around as long as you want, as far as I’m concerned! Be right back

So, I’ve been enjoying this nice day and the beautiful sunshine. Hey, it’s September 1st. September is going to be such an awesome month. This first week of the month is the only one that I will be working a full five days. I have a short work week each week leading up to the last one, when we will be on vacation! Sounds like a great plan to me. Open-mouthed smile

Today I was running some errands – had to go shopping at BJs and then stop at Price Chopper for a couple things that we needed in a smaller quantity. As I was driving along, I heard an advertisement – a variation of the one I’ve been waiting to hear! Every year Planet Fitness, which is the exercise place we’ve been planning to join for the winter, has a special of some sort. Usually it’s a variation of joining for a dollar, and then a monthly charge of some sort. So today they were advertising a great special – a year’s membership for $99! That’s $8.25/month with no fee to join. Seemed like a sign, since the Planet Fitness is in the same plaza as the Price Chopper that I was heading for….so I stopped and signed both Harry and myself up. So we are set – no excuses now to not keep up our exercise over the coming months!

Now, time to enjoy the rest of my day off – cook some dinner and do some laundry. Lots of exciting stuff!


  1. Gosh I wish I had your ambition!

  2. It's always better to start a fitness program with a buddy for sure!

    Have fun!!


  3. Glad you got a good deal on the fitness program. I should really be looking for one as well!
