Verandaaaaaaaahhhhh!
Tuesday, May 30, 2017      32 comments

Yes, it's verandah season again. And from our verandah, the world smells of flowers this morning: lilac and lily-of-the-valley. Sipping coffee, reading the newspaper, Charlie snoozing with his chin resting on the railing, listening t... Read more
They're Everywhere!

Baby cardinals. Well, maybe not everywhere. But now that I know what to listen for and what to look for, I've seen and heard baby cardinals in multiple locations in my front and back yards. So adorable! Their little piping voices... Read more

You see that status post button? It says "CHANGE". That's the button we need to hit to change our status. MAINtenance (the MAIN thing) is pretty much about staying in the same place, give or take within a range. Even though it seems to r... Read more

Friday, May 26, 2017      17 comments

REZOOMING encompasses a "how to recover when I fall off the track" technique from Susan Peirce Thompson which I find useful. The four Ss: speed, self-compassion, support, seeking the lesson. Speed: resume fast, REZOOOM!! Self-co... Read more
Raining!
Thursday, May 25, 2017      24 comments

So good for all that grass seed I planted! Supposed to rain all day and tomorrow too. I love the flowers this time of the year -- a big vase of lilacs on my kitchen table and a small vase with lily-of-the-valley, ajuga, forget-me-not... Read more

Rainy Forecast!
Monday, May 22, 2017      28 comments

A good day for planting some grass seed! We'd accommodated our neighbours when they asked last winter about rebuilding their retaining wall -- which required taking out our fence and encroaching on our back yard, they told us, by about 3 fe... Read more
Learning to Live With It
Sunday, May 21, 2017      21 comments

When somebody dies from cancer, so often the obituary beings, "After a long battle bravely fought . . . " And when somebody is diagnosed with cancer, so often they're told, "If you have the right attitude you'll fight it and defeat it." ... Read more

HOT Day Coming Up!!
Wednesday, May 17, 2017      24 comments

Really the first hot day this spring -- and high humidity -- and I've gotta head into the Big Smoke (aka Tranna) for a work thingy. Which will involve a lot of walking from public transit to the venue . . . at a rapid pace to be on time. ... Read more
Moving!
Tuesday, May 16, 2017      23 comments

Yesterday I treated myself to a lunch recess walk AND an after-work 9 hole golf game! It feels good to move. And this is one of the best times of the year to be outside. Hot weather on the horizon: so our extended spring condition... Read more
