Update on  My exercise goal for July :
My goal was to walk and average of 10 miles a day.
I Walked 308.55 miles, averaging  9.95 miles a day; 
however, I also "walked" 33 miles with
 Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds.
for a totals of 341.55 miles.


  1. So...umm....when can I expect you? {{{giggling}}}

    It has been too hot here...just too hot.I had plans to paint the kitchen, but, it just has stayed hot.

    Thank you for the lovely post and for the smiles sweet friend.

  2. Just reading this makes me happy!
    I love giving the house a good cleaning, my friend!
    And love the feeling of it being done even more. : )
    Have a cozy day.

  3. Oh, you're good. It must be so satisfying to cross all that off your list. Great job with all of that walking, too. You are an inspiration.

  4. So you have been busy with a 'little' spring cleaning, Hope. Your home will be gleaming from top to toe. Love the illustrations in this post.

  5. Wow, look at you go, sweet friend! I, too, need to give my house a good clean before Autumn arrives and school begins :)

    Happy cleaning, sweet Hope. Hugs!

  6. Way to go across the board, dear Hope. Even though it takes a toil on me (big time) health wise, I sincerely enjoy house cleaning, too, and like to do a huge, thorough clean like the one you're in midst of at least a couple of times a year, too. Usually I do so in spring and fall, but will be bumping this year's fall cleaning up to late summer, as we're going on holiday later this season and I want to house to be spic and span before leave (especially since my mom always sweetly house + pet sits for us while we're away and I want the place to be in top shape before she does so).

    Big hugs & happy mid-August wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
