Evergreen! Bike! 4.3.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:30 pm  

Started my morning with Brain Training.



I’m enjoying and memorizing sections from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. All the highlighted area!

The clouds have been really interesting this week.

I recorded another episode of Verbal Surgery called “The Unsearched for Answer.” It’s a good one! On Tuesday, I released, “Who am I?” it’s on course to be the most downloaded episode EVER! Had nearly 1,500 downloads in two days.

I had a problem with my new fitness tracker/watch. Sent it back to Amazon for a replacement.
I get to do that for free if I drop it off at the UPS store. No problem there!

You may remember that I hurt my left hip yesterday when I was doing yard work. I stepped into a hole and jarred myself pretty badly. Today, I went to Evergreen hotel at Stone Mountain to soak in the hot tub. The hot water felt good on the injury. It’s such a beautiful place. I always feel like a Kardashian when I’m there.

Poppin’ pansies!

The lake and Stone Mountain looked lovely.

My favorite bird.

I saw the Waste Pro truck today. Asked them about recycling some old lawnmowers.

While I was biking, I memorized a part of Leaves of Grass. With really long pieces, I break it down with individual words and a letter. Memorize the list of letters, THEN memorize the section for each letter. If you have a little trigger it’s WAY easier to remember what comes next.

This is one of my favorite dogwoods. Both of mine I had in my yard died. They are kind of a fragile tree from what I understand. That’s why I went with Pink Magnolias and Cherry Blossom. But it’s still a beauty! I had pink ones.This is red.

Rode my bike 12.50 miles. I had planned on farther, but when I got to mile five, my hip started hurting. I turned back and after a while, it stopped hurting so I did my two mile loop a few times to get the miles in. I really work on time, rather than distance. I did over 1.5 hours.

I was hoping to have my new fitness tracker on to check my heart rate today. The new one will be here in a couple of days.

Whenever I’m stressed out, I record. I am now a whopping 18 episodes “in the can” ready to be released! NEVER been that far ahead! Says something about what I’ve been going through lately. That and I love to hear myself talk! Verbal Surgery really is my best work.

Admin duties now.
