Saturday, December 16, 2017      10 comments

Daisy and I have just gotten back from our walk. Our brisk 34 minute walk has now turned into closer to 40 minutes plus 10 minutes to get dressed and 5 minutes to get undressed. Thank you winter! I don't know about you but winter really... Read more

So many years ago I danced to this song. We were called the Jan Gillespie Dancers (Jan Gillespie being our fearless leader). We performed nightly at a club called Diamond Lil's - the counterpart to Diamond Jim. I was young, energetic, full of... Read more
My first ever 5K Walk/Run
Thursday, November 23, 2017      14 comments

I am just back from my first ever 5K walk. In Minneapolis they have hosted a 5K Walk/Run which they call the Turkey Trot every year for several years now. Most years some or all of my children participate. I have always thought they were a bi... Read more
The blessings of a broken dishwasher
Wednesday, November 22, 2017      11 comments

I spent much of my lifetime without a dishwasher and I have to admit, I was envious of my friends who just had to clear their tables and put the dishes in the dishwasher. But then, I did have 5 children and their special reward for turning 6 wa... Read more

On Saturdays I have a Root Yoga class that I really enjoy - the teacher is one of the best. But I just couldn't do it this morning. I overslept - or actually I apparently turned off my little fitbit alarm and slept on for another hour. It mus... Read more

They said it would and it's not that I didn't believe, I didn't WANT to believe. But Tom and I spent most of yesterday preparing, yet hoping for a reprieve. Although yesterday there were certainly snow clouds in the sky and by evening a light ... Read more

Daisy and I decided to walk a little further today - it's probably the last really nice day we'll have for awhile. They are telling us 2 - 3 inches of snow by end of day tomorrow. So shortly I need to get myself outside to finish up with all t... Read more
Daisy's enjoying the parks
Thursday, October 12, 2017      15 comments

We've been trying to get out for some hikes in the parks around us to enjoy the beautiful fall weather - and enjoy as much of the out doors as we can before the snow flies. And around here that could be any day - or several weeks. I'm hoping f... Read more
A great day!

First, thank you all for your well wishes - they must have helped. I knew I was feeling better last night when I started thinking about all the projects I hadn't done during the week. My plan was to take care of them today; but plans change. ... Read more

I haven't been blogging for awhile. Nothing very interesting has been going on around here. Daisy and I have been taking our walks every morning - at least until this week. On Monday morning I went to Urgent Care because I knew, without quest... Read more

Life on a highway can be challenging at times, then add in neighbors..... Today, at least right now, I feel like the Grinch who stole September. This morning on my walk with Daisy I was thinking about how much I love the month of September... Read more

Two months ago I joined a gym at the recommendation of my Physical Therapist, who helped me recover nicely from knee replacement surgery. I had NEVER even stepped inside a gym before. Tried SNAP Fitness once about 10 years ago because my daugh... Read more

I have been home since Saturday early afternoon. Our trip home was nearly uneventful except for a minor irritation in Amsterdam. The flight from Trondheim was early - Colin and I had to get up at 3 a.m. to catch the bus to the Airport. Securi... Read more

Norway, Day 6 - Pulpit Rock
Tuesday, August 08, 2017      16 comments

Today was a rather quiet day for me. Coli and I drove to Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock. It's about a 1 1/2 hour hike up and I knew that was a bit out of my abilities. So I walked a bit with Colin, then headed back down to wait at th... Read more
