Yoga ~ HB Del! ~ Dirt Devil Stick ~ Eagles

Good 37º raining morning. 1/2" since yesterday.
At least it's not a full moon AND Friday the 13th!!

Yesterday was uneventful. I got out the new yoga mat and the yoga DVD and started that. OH MY. Not easy. Some sore muscles today. Doc said it would be good for me to strengthen muscles, since my activity level is not high with the old back of mine! Will see. I think the hardest part is getting down on the floor and back up again!!! :o)

Today is an old high school pal's birthday, Adelle Easton Graves. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEL! She was in W'63 and I was in S'63.
Funny picture... she wanted me to Photoshop some devil horns on her picture for FB.

I bought a Dirt Devil Broom/Vac a number of years ago.

Rechargeable, cordless.

What a piece of junk. I finally replaced it, today from Amazon, with a new version...the Dirt Devil Stick... You can use it with the attachments or without.

It has a cord and was only $20. The rechargeable cordless one is $60. The broom vac was about $80. I am happy happy as it is light as a feather, works great, and it's a cinch to do the stairs.

You can check on the Iowa eagles... growing...

Actually, I think we should go back to bed and wait for the day to end,! Friday the 13th. YIKES
I think your Yoga sounds like fun. I bet once you get use to it, you will love it, and hopefully your back will feel much better.
Eagle video was neat. So cute how she is trying to keep them warm.
Lots of interesting historical stuff. How do you really feel about the Memorial in DC? LOL
Hope your day is grand, and thank you for our morning blog. Chat later. xo

Sue, I had totally forgotten that Adelle was your high school friend. She is my FB friend and when I saw her doggies and knew she was a dog lover I toldher she needed to join Pets We Love. I worked like a fool trying to get her joined! Had to get Kimberly to do it as it wasn't working for me nor for Adelle. Kim finally succeeded! So now she is on PWL too!
When I was at Parnell there was a gal named Nancy Butts! She was so evil and used to make fun of MY last name, Pipkin. Guess maybe she thought she would make fun of others before we made fun of her name!! Boy did we have ammo! lol

Hugs and stay out of trouble on this Friday the 13th!

XOXO Trisha
