Some days I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 68 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY ONE YEARS!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    You can purchase a roller/ball to help your plantar fasciitis.

    I hope you are feeling better soon.

    Yep ... Intuitive Eating while on the cruise.

    Coz ... someone else had to deal with the food preparation???
    Someone else had to clean it allllllll up???

    We were doing what we wanted to and eating was enjoyable but NOT the focus of living???

    Hey Girlfriend! I'm doing alright. My tendonitis in my right hand/thumb/wrist/arm is easing up day by day. Good thing I have paint-on glazes to apply to earthenware stuff or work would be at a stand still. It didn't start hurting until well after I delivered the pottery to the Tulip Festival. It seems to me it was all the social media I was doing after that delivery date and also all the changes I made to my website re: COVID 19 protocols.
    I was not being very attentive to my needs when I began working on the kitchen table on my laptop. It's called laptop for a reason! The bend created in my wrists by having the laptop up so high plus the scrolling action I use while on my phone (thumb flicks) followed by a flurry of gardening (raking and pulling weeds) as well as every day stuff like washing dishes, pulling laundry out of the washer, kneading bread dough, opening a jar, using a can opener...well, you can't just stop living or opening jars or doors! But it's getting better and better and that makes me happy.
    The Tulip Festival online sales has gone very well. Last time they checked in with me, most of my stock was sold. I'm chomping at the bit to get into the studio!! I will make more tulip mugs
    as soon as I'm ready to work again without hurting myself.
