The La-Z-Boy Chair

Hubby's chair finally arrived.  I ordered it for him on July 19th as part of his anniversary gift and it finally arrived.  We picked the color we thought would most closely match our other furniture.  As it turned out, it was an almost exact match.

Personal Trainer

Hubby and I took the plunge and joined 24 Hour Fitness.  In addition, I signed up for three sessions with a personal trainer.  I had my first session tonight and loved it.

Weather Station

We have a weather station in our backyard, which is fantastic.  No matter where I am, I can look online or on my phone and see what the weather is doing at my house.  Unfortunately, when I set the sprinklers on Sunday, I set it where the water hit the weather station underneath - which is not a good thing.  There was  a sensor right where the sprinkle hit and that sensor was not meant to get wet - at least not a direct hit for 15 minutes or more.  Getting this sensor wet knocked out our weather station for about 24 hours.  Thankfully hubby was able to get the sensor dried out and get us back online; otherwise, we would have needed to buy a new sensor and it is not a cheap piece.

We are now planning to buy another weather station and donate it to our City Hall.  Our town is so small it doesn't have a weather station and we have to rely on areas around us.  That is why we got one to begin with, but the weather is dramatically different in various areas of our community, so it would be nice to have one at City Hall.

31 Days of Geocaching

Today starts a month long challenge called "31 Days of Geocaching".  The goal is to find a cache for every day during the month of August.  For each day that you find a cache or attend an event, you get a souvenir.  Hubby and I have a 108 day streak going (we have found a cache every day since April 16th), so I have no doubt we will be able to complete this challenge and collect all 31 souvenirs.

If you have never done geocaching, go check it out at  It is a lot of fun, gets you out of the house, and is much a mental exercise as it is physical.  We have been members of the geocaching family since 2001.
