Exercising my brain to make my body better
Wednesday, October 09, 2019      12 comments

Yesterday's last pelvic floor PT lesson was all talk. Today's Pilates lesson with DD1 was also about using my brain as I don't breathe properly when I exercise. Next week I start PT for my abused hamstrings, IT bands, glute muscles and tendo... Read more
I must be the ball of energy on our family trip!
Monday, October 07, 2019      10 comments

No, not this trip. This was 2013, our first trip to Alaska. While I was basking in the sights of glaciers and vistas I'd never seen DH was listening... Read more
Flora and few fauna on my trip
Thursday, October 03, 2019      15 comments

Nature. There's a lot of that in Alaska but the fauna was elusive this trip. I got to see my first moose with a large rack! As a matter of fact we saw several but they were very far away. ... Read more
Bonus Northern Lights nights
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      9 comments

How to view the Northern lights. Go far north. Real far. Fairbanks was a good starting point. Get on the list the hotel offered to call or text if the lights came out. Be confused at 1 am, tripping around a strange hotel room having be... Read more
Back to a more orderly view of my Alaska trip
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      15 comments

We did the "touristy" things prescribed by the tour in Fairbanks. On a boat ride we were treated to a display by a local pilot. Passed by sl... Read more

Busy catching up with life. Babysitting gkids to major help out DD1. Fall cleaning and winter prep. Yikes, my windows were dirty! Getting too involved in TV politics! Argggggggggggggggggggggggh. You'll not get chronological photos at this ... Read more
A diet to live by, not a diet to be "on" the rest of my life.
Wednesday, September 25, 2019      13 comments

One thing my doctor and I talked about was my diet. What I ate, not how much. What my weight does to my body. I brought all this up before he could. He knows I know better. I told him my ideas. If I lose weight, my hips will have less strai... Read more
Back to "normal". Yackity-yack.
Tuesday, September 24, 2019      12 comments

Yep, I'm back to normal. Being new to Medicare, my annual "physical" yesterday was disappointing. After reviewing my completed forms about safety, mental health and whatnot my doctor apologized and said this was a hands-off exam per Medica... Read more
Did you miss me?

Ah, Alaska! A land tour and cruise with our travel buddies has me totally whipped. What with 1 and 2 am calls to view Northern Lights at 2 different places... ... Read more
Vacation struggles
Thursday, September 05, 2019      13 comments

We have packed for our vacation. Unpacked. Re-packed. Changed our minds on clothing/shoes. Less is more. By now you should know me. Sneakers or hiking shoes, jeans and sweatshirts will do. I try to fit 2 weeks into a carry-on. Normally we'd hav... Read more
IE is an experiment for me.
Tuesday, September 03, 2019      8 comments

I'm contemplating I may be an intuitive eating failure. The word "failure" seems cruel but it works in the sense I haven't done so well. From my recent attempts come a few extra pounds and an examination of my food choices. From failure comes su... Read more
Remembrance of another September 2

9 years ago today the day was sunny and warm. My first grandson decided it was a good day to venture out! There's been a lot going on since then. ... Read more
August stones on a pond
Saturday, August 31, 2019      11 comments

Anyone skip stones? I can get maybe 2 skips. My brother could get 3. I concede he can throw better than I can! Enough sibling rivalry! I woke up and it was August first. Somehow I missed a few days and then it was the 10th. Somewhere in the... Read more
Decommissioning my garden, too!
Thursday, August 29, 2019      12 comments

Temps in the low 60's at night. Cooler breezes wafting through the windows in the daytime. Pool covered in the back yard meaning no more maintenance! Ahhhhhh! My garden did not fare so well this year. If I had to rely on the fruits... Read more
Waning summer...
Tuesday, August 27, 2019      14 comments

Summer is coming to a close. We are covering our pool early this year as it's gotten quite chilly at night and the water temperature has dropped below my threshold. Fighting algae and cold costs $$$ and is not worth the struggle. My plants h... Read more
