Wednesday, September 17, 2014      2 comments

I started out on my walk this morning, thinking I'd take this little package to the Post Office a mile away. Just got down my street and I felt some rain droplets. I returned home gecause I didn't want to get rained on. So, I put in a new DVD an... Read more

Today is the culmination of six months of dreaming. I have a Spiritual Adviser I see every so often. In April we talked about how I enjoy interacting with a group and how it is hard on me when I don't "fit in" or leave a group for some reason.... Read more

When you eat right and exercise, you just have more energy. I attacked the dandelions in my back yard today with a special tool made for that. I was only going to do a few minutes, but one led to another, to another...and so on. Pretty soon I... Read more
A Very Good Day

Red letter day for me. On the way home from Tacoma this morning I bought 10# dumbbells to step up from the 3, 5, and 8# ones I've been using. That gave me an incentive. I had the whole afternoon to myself, so I decided to do my strength train... Read more
Maintenance Is New to Me
Tuesday, September 09, 2014      5 comments

Doing this Maintenance Thing is harder than I expected! Just add a few calories and keep up the exercise and that's all there is to it--wrong! I'm finding adding A FEW calories is hard. Especially when I'm watching my fat intake (down) and pr... Read more
Personal Training Day

It's a beautiful day in the Northwest USA. It's cooler than the past month has been, but that's a nice change of pace. I was off at 6:30 am to see my Personal Trainer. His "cubical" is just one mile from my house, so I usually make that m... Read more
Getting Lost Goes to My Advantage
Thursday, September 04, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday I decided to find a place just 1.6 miles from my house. It's a stretch for me, but I knew I could make it and that would be my walk for the day. Well, it didn't work out that way. I made it there with the help of several people who ... Read more

Yesterday a friend came over and I taught her to use the Navaho spindle. As my teacher did before me, I asked her to spin every day for two weeks and sent her off with one of my spindles, roving, carders, and lots of raw washed wool. Sin... Read more

Today I'm teaching my friend Kim to spin on the Navaho Spindle. I've got raw wool, rolags, roving, and just plain fiber for her to try. Looking forward to a fun afternoon. Yesterday I took my 2-harness table loom to my teacher's house and... Read more

What a GREAT day today! I went out at 9 to meet two friends and walk on the Chehalis-Western Trail for an hour. Then I went "downtown" to meet another friend. We met on the Capitol grounds, looked at the sunken garden, walked north, shopped i... Read more
