Sunday was lazy!

Well, the day wasn't, but I was!  I didn't walk today.  I decided to give my foot a break.  It's still bothering me, but it's not as bad.  I figured missing a day of walking wouldn't hurt.  I didn't skip anything else though.  I got in my workouts, I washed my bed linen, (although I haven't put it back on the bed yet), and I washed my hair.  I feel bad about not walking, but my steps for the week won't suffer.  I try to get a minimum of 15,000 a day.  The two days I got in two walks, I hit 25,000 both of those days, so I won't be missing out on anything step wise this week!

So, last night I was installing a variation of Linux on my laptop.  I liked the version I installed, but there were things about it I didn't like.  I went back and looked again.  I've always used different variations of Ubuntu.  I figured, why not install Ubuntu itself for a change.  I did and I love it.  I'm actually posting my blog post today on my laptop that has Ubuntu loaded on it. ^_^

I'm currently posting this and watching the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.  I can't believe it's almost over.  It's been fun watching every night.  I'm going to miss it.  


Walking, yes or no.

Well, it was a yes!  It was warm again today and although it was overcast, there was a very minimal chance of rain, so I decided to walk.  It was a pretty good one and I must have been moving pretty fast, because I got back home a bit earlier than I usually do!  I relaxed a few minutes with coffee and then did my workouts.  Those weren't too bad.  After those, I did my French lesson and then relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.  I also washed and dried a load of clothes today, but I haven't gotten those out of the dryer yet!

I decided to go to Target just to walk around for a bit.  I did, but they were so crowded, it got on my nerves so I left!  I had thought about getting Starbucks, but my friend had texted and asked if I'd bring him a shake.  I did that and then I drove around a little more and then headed home.  I watched more Olympic coverage today.  I saw some the the Curling event and I have to say that is the dumbest thing I've ever seen.  How is that even considered a sport?!  So weird!

Anyway!  I did find two true crime books last night on Amazon and loaded them to my Kindle.  One is a book about Ted Bundy that I haven't read.  I am fascinated with Ted Bundy and I've read all the books I could get on him.  The reviews say this one is good.  My favorite will always be The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule.  Not only did she write about him, she actually KNEW him personally.  I loved all her books.  It was sad when she died.  Her writing style was excellent.

I decided to try a different version of Linux on one of my old Win laptops.  The laptop that I was trying to burn the iso to a usb drive was being snarky, so I restarted it and now I'm waiting for 15342432234 updates. ~_~; Stupid windows and their stupid updates.  I wish it would hurry.  At this point, I am probably not going to be installing Linux tonight!  I've always (well mainly) used version of Linux Mint, but I wanted to try something different.  We'll see how it goes!
