Grandgirls! Bike! 4.13.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:53 pm  

I caught up on Duolingo last night. Did more this morning.

Released Verbal Surgery -652- “Fine Denial” late last night. Learn how to deny the wrong things and feel good, NOW! Just click on the title and GROOVE!

Brain Training this morning.


Sent a new email to our supporters! Ashley’s part of the newsletter!

I like the sound of both of these.

While I was at the park, I saw these water/pollen trails. Beauty is all around us!

Kathy and I took the girls to Chic-fil-a. We saw Tommy and Katie and their kids there! I think that makes them Penelope’s and Everly’s cousins.

Neither of the girls are feeling too great. Right before Ash and Miles came over to pick them up, Everly threw up all over us. So sad. Ashley said she’s feeling better now.

I trapped and released squirrel #51 today.

Went for a 13.87 mile bike ride.

I’m mostly in the fat burn speed. Perfect really. While staying above 110 BPM.

Kathy scraped the side of Jesse’s car when she was pulling out. Worked on repairing as best I can the side mirror she clobbered and buffing out the slight scrapes on the side. I’ll be able to see it better in the stronger daylight.

Admin duties now. I hope to go to sleep early today since I only got about 5.5 hours last night. Worth it!

Friday! Bad Suns!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:57 am  

Friday was another super fun day!

Slept ok. I always feel great, even when my sleep isn’t terrific.

I still find the science of tracking it interesting.

Continue to practice Brain Training.

Went to the mission to watch the grand girls!

Everly still wasn’t feeling well. Teething is a bitch. But she wasn’t!

I took them to the park near their house. The swing made E feel better.

After an hour or so, I took them home, gave them baths and put Everly to bed.

Ashley came home after working out and I took a nap with Everly. That helped!

Went to the church to check on mail.

Watered my ficus tree. She really took a hit with that cold snap that one night, but she’s ok! One side took the brunt of the cold it seemed. I’m hoping that the leaves will come back on that part.

Went to see Bad Suns Friday night. Todd Rundgren is 72. Most of the people at that concert were my age or older. Could not have been more different with the Bad Sun crowd. I’d say there were ten women to every dude and age was around mid 20s! After getting in this huge line and seeing all these youngsters, I felt pretty out of place. For a moment I actually thought, “Maybe I’ll blow this off.” Then I came to my senses and said, “I can out rock all these kids.” Which turned out to pretty much be true!

I have to say that it was one of the BEST concerts I’ve ever been to.

Incredible energy. And like me, the crowd knew pretty much all the words. Light show was phenomenal.

Here’s what they sang. Their new album Mystic Sun is also super good.

This was the analysis of my work out at the concert!

I waited for about two hours after the show and got to meet Christo Bowden who is the lead singer. He was a super nice guy and a real talent.

I got him to sign my shirt.

Wow! What an amazing three days this has been. Especially since I haven’t been to a show in nearly a year. Awesome.

Still catching up on admin duties. Nearly finished. My discipline is almost an obsession. In fact, I actually broke my Duolingo streak because I got home after 1AM! But Duolingo cut me some slack. As well they should, since it was still the same day to me! LOL.

Thursday! Todd #2!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:38 am  

This has been a whirlwind of musical activity! Thursday night I stayed up late and the same with Friday! So I’m catching up on admin duties now!

Slept ok.

Brain Training

After practicing the Wim Hof method of breathing plus the brain training.

Studied. You guessed it!

Went to the Todd Rundgren book signing for his new book The Individualist. I really liked it. While I was waiting in line I met Alan Meero who is a famous botanist. Of course, you know my love for flowers!

This one is named after him!

Todd and I had a fun conversation.

There was a long line of folks. I went to eat and came back and finished my conversation with him. I ate here. The FIRST Moes! I thought that was cool! Delicious salad.

After the book signing, I went by the church to pick up mail.

Went to the mission to help with homework, but the girls weren’t feeling well. Penelope had a stomach ache and Everly was teething. She still flashed me a smile for the picture!

Went by the bank to deposit checks. Amen!

I liked this sticker. I do.

Enjoyed night #2 of Todd’s show “The Individualist!” He was great!

His wife, Michelle, invited me to a get together after the show. I had another fun talk with Todd. He’s a cool guy who likes many of the same things I do, in particular foreign cultures.

Another late night! But one of the best!
