It's a Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood
Sunday, March 22, 2020      1 comments

For Those Hoarding
Friday, March 20, 2020      3 comments

My 3-mile walk
Thursday, March 12, 2020      4 comments

Yesterday was perfect pre-spring weather. My long-desired walk down our road and back was invigorating. My reward is seeing a big Aussie. He leaps off the porch, bellows our a huge roar, starts walking slowly toward me with a menacing growl, ... Read more

Challenge of Gray Skies
Tuesday, March 10, 2020      2 comments

Amazing how life looks different when the sun is not shining. Today I will go for a spring outing--looking at how the earth is responding to the sun's shift. The sky may not be showing spring but the birds singing and new life springing is pro... Read more

Sunday, March 08, 2020      2 comments

Friday, March 06, 2020      1 comments

If IF doesn't show a break in my plateau, does that mean it didn't work? I am waking up with more energy and feeling like something was accomplished. I felt more grateful for my breakfast and took time to enjoy it. (There is still room for im... Read more
Motor is revving
Thursday, March 05, 2020      0 comments

Started the day with my trackers and added a lot of things to do on my planning list. Inside my body the motor is humming and that is usually a sign to focus and take things one step at a time. Laugh for the day is that I answered nine tri... Read more
Intermittent Fasting
Wednesday, March 04, 2020      3 comments
