OT - Tone-Up Tuesday

Aniki's picture

Happy Tuesday, STalkers! How goes it?

After all the steroids I had to take, i'm surprised I only gained 5 lbs. Steroids make me eat like a fat man at a hot dog eating contest!

Fall at LAST and cooler temps. Makes it easier to get outside for some sunshine and fresh air and not sweat like an Olympian.

What is your favorite Fall activity? Kayaking and canoeing top my list.

I like to run in the Fall, especially early Fall when there aren't too many slippery leaves on the ground. But my favorite Fall activity is apple-picking!!

Kayaking Coneing.  I used to do TONS of hiking in the fall. I miss the mountains.... A lot. (Also actually decent Mexican food... This area of the south just doesn't seem to quite grasp it...)

Also I love how the "More Like This" column is completely just "OT- Tone-up Tuesday" again and again.

Welcome back!!! I missed you!!!

DH took me for a drive on Sunday and we did a little bit of walking (no HIKING). It tired me out!

Welcome back Aniki! Glad you're feeling better. People have been worried. Pnuemonia is no rookie illness.

I love hiking in the fall.

Thank you, Iamwoman! I'm glad to be back. Pneumonia sucks!

I love the smell of leaves in Fall and hiking is a great way to enjoy them.

Gardening - and house updates.

I'm currently digging out some old garden features that the former owners allowed to "disappear" under grass and other plants.  I've found a new rock border - it'll be a b*tch to dig out but it'll look great.  I have to find some deer proof plants (if they exist) as well and we provide a nice over-night/early morning yard for about 3-4 residents.  Our grapes are the "deer candy."

I'm also ripping out old, overgrown herbs in the back in preparation for some work DH and I are going to do back there next year.

DH and and I are also doing some bedroom updates this fall.

Other activities include more bread making, walks on the weekends, I'm going to break open my complicated cookie and cake cookbook (I don't generally eat them but my neighbors/co-workers are happy).

It rains a lot here so my indoor activities are essential to not becoming a catatonic blob.

Darn it - the link to my state info is not working.  Will search out on my own.

Deer do not eat my herbs (yay!) nor the roses (tearing out the older, strangely placed and going dead bush this fall too, but keeping the cute mini-roses!).  They don't eat the more poisonous English Laurel either, but are known to in other locations near us...I wish our deer would!

Crying.. I hate fall because it means winter is coming.  I know.. I know.. people say they love having "four seasons"  Well, you know what we get here?  The worst of all of them.  Hot and humid summer... cold, icy snow... wet falls and springs.. hurricanes.  I don't like the area I live.. like REALLY don't like it.  Moving is not an option for at least 6 years.. (early retiremement with a pension).  I mean.. I actually love my job.. but wish I didn't have to be HERE to do it..lol.

Yesssssssss, the best holiday of the year!  Getting my costume ready and buying candy for the hordes of kids we are lucky to get!  Also queueing up the 30 days of horror movie marathon list.

Activities:

Hiking (great time of year for nice, long hikes with no ticks)

Long bike rides on the bike trails (avoiding the walnuts!)

Gardening - fall is for planting!  Plus everything is on sale.

Fall is the BEST!

Well, that depends on how fast I can get it together.  I want to be a Bene Gesserit, but need some help making that because I can't sew for crap.  Backup is my plague doctor costume, the mask is great but it gets sort of hot and annoying. 

How about you?

I love fall weather but here on the Gulf Coast it doesn’t really arrive until about January.
