Happy Birthday to me

It is too dark and wet to get a good picture.  It is a 2010 Silverado 4x4, fully loaded.  I really like it.  I guess it is my new work truck.  It is the nicest vehicle we have ever owned, and the most costly.  I really like it.

I walked 7 miles today, to the Coin Church and back, did my 15 minutes of strength training, and ate semi healthy.  I am going to read from the holy  book later.  I deserve a gold star.

The Beginning

But not sunrise picture because today we never had a sunrise, gray and drippy all day.  But here is a calendar that tells when we should  have had sunrise today, if there had been such a thing.
Still I walked my 4 miles tonight.  Which reminds me of my computer problem today.  I have been thinking today that I would make a few New Year's  resolutions and write them here because one thing that will assist in actually following through with best intentions is to tell someone.  You are someone so I am going to tell you my best intentions today:
1.  Log the miles I walk
2.  15 minutes or maybe 30 minutes of strength training a day
3.   Eat healthy, 5 vegetables and fruit each day
4.  Post on my blog at least every two days
5.  Read the Bible
So, it was logging the miles that made me aware of the computer problem.  When I open the spreadsheet to put in my miles walked today, the cursor on the computer had disappeared.  The touch screen works fine for reading and playing, but for real file work, you need the mouse and cursor.  After restarting the computer twice, I tried Google.  It seems with some laptops there is an F key that turns off the cursor.  On my Toshiba is it the F5 key.  Presto, back in business.  But, the day was still gloomy all day long. And, Sunday night it is supposed to be down around 10 degrees.  It must be January.
The 15 minutes strength training is just a few simple moves with a 3 pound weight in each hand, but I have not been doing them on any regular basis.  I guess I will log that in my file also.
Eat healthy was going good until cold weather and then not so much.  And, I have been eating chicken at work  again.  No more fried chicken every day, and back to counting vegetables and fruits  And, less soda.
I have downloaded a Bible app from Olivetree.  It has the King James Version and a couple of commentaries.  What I would like is a ebook  reference Bible where I  could click on the reference and go to that point to read the reference.  This is not exactly that, but it does have a commentary that works like that, and I can display the Bible and commentary side by side so it sorta works like I want.  This was all free and is on the computer so I do not have to be online to read or use it.  Of course, I can also read my regular Bible.  Anyway, I am up to Geneses chapter 6. 
I like to use the  blog as a boring daily journal so I can look back and  see what was when. I have tried several times to write a regular journal and have one by my bed that I started in August, but I can never seem to keep it going.  A blog journal is easier for me.
Our local radio station has been saying all day that we will have freezing rain tomorrow.  But, then, they were saying we had freezing rain today, when we did not.  I hope they are wrong about tomorrow.  I think KY3 is saying just rain, no freezing.  We will see.  And, maybe I will post what we have when, here.

The End

of  2014.

We are going to Frank  Marr's memorial service tonight.  He died the 26th.  He will be buried in NM, but they are having visitation here tonight. 

I have logged 84 miles walked in the month of December.  That is 2.7 miles a day, or almost 1 hour walking each day.  Of course some days I did not walk at all, but if I walk I nearly always do 4 miles. And, over the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas I have not been eating lightly but still did not gain weight.  For Christmas, Helen made 3 pies and a carrot cake.  No one here except me ate any of that.  Finally, Mon and Tue I took the pies to work.  Everyone said they were really good, but I am not telling her that.

I do not have to go back to work until Monday.  I am going to try to find a reference Bible Ebook from my tablet.  I want one where you click on the reference and it goes to that place in the Bible.  I would not care to buy one, but I would want to know if it worked that way before I paid for it.  I have found several free Bible Ebooks.  I will try some of those and see what I think.

Helen is taking the kids to Church tonight.  They are starting back on the kids Bible classes on Wed night. They like to go because there are other kids there, and hopefully  they learn something.

I think I have the books of the Bible down pat now. 

Got to go.  If anyone wants to see Frank Marr's obit, it is on Smith Family Funeral Home at Green Forest.  He was 82 years old.

Church day

Today I walked 4 miles, then we went to Church.  George has started going with us.  I think Helen is going tonight, but I am not.  This week they start back with their Wednesday night Sunday school for kids and Helen says she will take the kids to that.  They really like going if there is a kids class, but are not so keen on the preacher part.

Lane goes back to CA tomorrow, and I go back to work.  But, I only work 3 days this week. We have New Years day off and I am taking the day after for my birthday that falls on Sunday.  I forget how old I will be, but it is really old.
