Ever since I started doing part of my leg workout outside, the weather on Thursday has been outstanding. Actually there was one rainy Thursday, but it magically cleared up in time for my workout. Today is forecast to be sunny with highs in the upper 70s. I know it sounds a little silly, but taking part of my leg workout outside has really been a cool experience. Lately I’ve been waking up on leg day excited about my workout, and I always check the weather forecast as soon as I get on my computer. I’m actually a little surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed this seemingly small change. I’m still thinking about putting a squat rack back there, but I doubt my neighbors would appreciate it. As I’ve mentioned before, I tend to grunt and yell. Not on every rep, and not on purpose, but when I’m pushing hard at the end of a tough set, yeah.
My landscape designer is full of surprises these days! The other day he surprised me by showing up a couple weeks early to do Phase 1 of the big landscaping job (photos), and last night he called me to go over his plans for Phase 2. He sounded more excited about this next phase than I’ve ever heard him before. He promised that Phase 2 is going to be even more dramatic and beautiful than the first phase. He waited until the end of the call to let me know that he’s coming over with his crew TODAY to do the job! He said it might take two days to complete the work, but there’s a chance it will be done today. As soon as he’s done I’ll get some pictures up in my New Home Journal, and I’ll also put them in my public photo journal. If you are interested in the actual plants and trees he’s be using, I put them in my New Home Construction Journal. Here’s a direct link to the post (an upgraded forum membership is required).
Tomorrow is my final day of work before my vacation! I can’t wait!
