Went into the gym this morning for a workout and had an appointment for a Wellness Check. I was so dismayed to learn that they hadn't saved my records from the two previous checks. I really wanted to compare and see how much improvement I had made. Since I had just worked out I had to reschedule my appointment so that the check up would be at least 12 hours after my last work out or walk. Two things of interest I learned today were
  • After a workout the body's meatbolism rate stays up for 12 to 15 hours.
  • The calves and abdominal muscles can be worked out every day. The muscles don't need a rest period to recover.

    Hubby, Number Two Son and I visited the Park Gallery where Number Two Son's artwork was on display. It was entitled
    Number Two Son 8th Grade
    "Pryamid Box"
    slab-built stoneware
    with cone 06 glaze

    It was one of nine stoneware pieces selected for the exhibition. Different shades of green with repeating triangles and pyramid shapes, based on a mathematical and chemistry concepts. He said it was inspired by the 1960's "Funk" styles made popular by artists like Robert Arnesan. His style of art is far different than mine was at his age. I was more darkly abstract, he uses concrete applications in his work. Unfortunately, they wouldn't let us take pictures, but he should get it back after the exhibit is over. Very proud of him I am!

    Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
    - Psalm 4: 7-8 (KJV)
