I see not a single bruise. A slight muscle ache in my triceps seems more like lifting one too many weights. The scrape on my chin is gone. Ribs are fine. My hip feels like it always does. So what did I learn from my feet flying out ... Read more
Olympic bid on ice, body slam. The things you think in a brief second.

No Olympics save this time like the last where I went down on one knee. Ta da. I went down like a 216 pound, almost 61, grandmother of two, with my lunch bag and pocket book. I did a full body slam. Came down on my hip with the bursitis, s... Read more

Sweet, sweet Spring! The sound of early campers claiming their territory had boosted my inner self. Yesterday I spied an old robin's nest in an apple tree which survived the winter. It was piled about 6 inches high with snow. Great constru... Read more

I don't have the gianormic, epic, once-in-a-lifetime piles that they have in Boston. No, thank you. I do have some chest high piles in front of my house and along the sides of the driveway. I cannot fathom the ability to sling the snow up ... Read more

I drove 3 hours on highways today with snow and ice impeding my progress. I took DH on a drive yesterday and we stayed overnight in Christiana Del (hello ROXYZMOM) to check out the huge mall. Didn't spend a dime! Went to the movies and s... Read more
Happy Friday, next to last day in February; looking for March to march in like a lion!

In like a lion, out like a lamb, yes? It goes along with groundhog wisdom. I'm more of an April showers bring May flowers girl. And what to Mayflowers bring?, you may continue. Well, pilgrim...... Today is the beginning of a new era... Read more
Contemplating a goal. Not quite making my case, but at least I'm discriptive!
Thursday, February 26, 2015      5 comments

I am not a goal oriented person. I get flummoxed when asked to define my goals. I see pictures, big pictures. Red rock hills and cotton ball clouds in a blue sky. D... Read more
Random thoughts for a Tuesday

Exhausted. This weekend took a toll on me. At least I've been sleeping. The stresses of the past month or so have allowed me the opportunity to find lost pounds. Sigh, my own fault. Work is awful; that's for another day. DH is past some... Read more

Whew, that was a whirlwind of activity! From temporarily loosing the groom to some British devil humor from his best friend, going to the wrong place and a last minute dress tear and no thread. We found the groom and the place. I fixed the dress... Read more

Flash back to a warm July 1964. Yeah, that far back! The playground equipment at the ball field included the wooden spinning wheel. The kind with four bent steel pipes set to use as handles, a splinter producing wooden floor and a central ... Read more

For those of you who haven't read the series, it's a "love" story with S&M erotica. Not great writing but, whatever. The fun part was when I told some co-workers about the commercial. I asked what kind of accessories do you think they a... Read more

Empire State Building. My quads ache at the thought of those steps. Being local, and having viewed the ESB frequently from various places and angles, I enjoyed reading the winners times this morning. My DD lives directly across the river so... Read more
