I stopped updated this blog because it was too time consuming to keep up. If you want to see what all has been going on since my last post here, you should follow me on Tumblr here.
Dan and I did the Survivor Mud Run at Lake Elsinore today. It was so much fun! At the first mud pit, someone foolish enough to wear her wedding ring during the race, lost the ring. I took off all my rings and earrings before the race, not wanting to risk loosing them. There was a very eclectic group of runners, with a lot of wacky outfits. I heard one girl say, “I’m so over this!” before we even got to the half way mark. Dan and I both had a great time and are planning to do it again next year.
We were lucky enough to be in the flight path when the Space Shuttle Endeavour piggybacked on a 747 took it’s final flight over southern California today. I took this picture from my backyard as it flew at 1500 feet head towards the Boeing plant in Huntington Beach. There were people on their roofs and others lining the roads to watch the shuttle go by. Here’s a few more shots from my backyard
Dan drove over to PCH and waited in Seal Beach for the flyover. Here’s two of his shots:
I bought a special mylar filter for my camera so I could take pictures of the Transit of Venus across the Sun today.
It’s no secret that I am a big Doctor Who fan. I’ve managed to pass my love for the show on to my children, who are all big Whovians as well. My daughter Talia made me this for Mother’s Day. It is my name in Gallifreyan. I love it and had to scan it in to share for all to see.
A few pics of the super moon taken from my backyard.
I’ve been going to Weight Watchers since the May. So far I have lost 30 pounds. I’ve also been taking a kickboxing class three times a week, which has really been toning up my muscles. People have asking for pictures, so I had Talia take some of me today.
For comparison, heres a picture of me taken last summer right after I started going to Weight Watchers.
We had our annual pumpkin carving day today. Talia and Kayli went with Harry Potter themed designs and Aidan went with a Doctor Who design. Everyone else did their own face designs.
