Checking in with an upper body strength from Zanna van Dijk.

Yesterday I walked more than 7 miles, mostly during the So Joo Festival here in Porto last night. People walk around with plastic squeaky hammers or long fronds of garlic plants, tapping each other on the head, dancing and laughing, eating and drinking, and lighting mini hot air balloons, so the sky is full of them. At the end of the night there are fireworks. It was a magical night and DD loved it.

Cynthia and Diana, that is great news!

Lynn, if barre 3 was using a song Heather has, it came from an online clearing house called Epidemic Sound, which many Youtubers use. We have it for our videos. All of Heather's songs come from there. Once you have access (for about $100/year) you can use any songs there. So it sounds like barre 3 just doesn't have the good taste Heather has with their music choices!

My sister's daughter seems to have experienced a miracle regarding her heart. She had chest pains and all the symptoms and was feeling very poorly the day before her echocardiogram. As she was going for her echo appointment, a large group who had just come from a day-long Baltimore missions trip was praying for her in Maryland where my sister lives. Anyway, unlike the last one, this echo found no problems at all with her heart, completely normal, no sign of damage. She has not had chest pain or shortness of breath since. So, thanks for all your prayers! She is going to have an ultrasound to check the ovarian cyst situation in a few weeks.

Hi Everyone!

Another person at church has tested positive for covid. They could have gotten it elsewhere and not at church. Who knows. Anyways singing practice for tomorrow and Sunday services have been cancelled.


DH got his second shingles vaccine today. Hopefully no side effects for him.

Check-In: 1 hour walk

Have a Blessed evening!

I woke up feeling like it was a good day to do kickboxing, which is a good sign, so I did a cardio kickboxing by Heather.

I didn't realize how much the bad mattress we've been trying to sleep on for months affected me. It caused so much soreness and achiness. Honestly DH and I think it's basically a box spring. A couple nights ago we traded mattresses with DD, who has the same size bed but always seems to end up with the best mattress, lucky her. When we get our shipment things (they have already docked the ship) we have a mattress topper, but the queen size beds here are a bit different in dimensions. We'll see if the topper works for DD. Otherwise we may have to get a new mattress.

Anyway, except for the elbow tendonitis, the aches are basically gone and I have energy again from being able to sleep.

Diana, sorry to hear about your church! I will keep them in my prayers.

Cheryl, what wonderful news about your niece!

Diana, closing the church (as mine did for a while) is a very tough decision, but sometimes it's necessary. I hope everyone gets well soon.

I'm starting to feel better, but up til yesterday I was still having occasional pain, so I've decided to keep the ENT appt on Monday.

Lynn, I know you mix it up with other things, but I marvel at how steadfast you are with barre3.

I started a closet project right before my ear acted up. I've got some puttering to do. Thinking about some gentle Pilates at bedtime.
