At the Gym
Sunday, August 27, 2017      29 comments

Getting to the gym REALLY lifted my mood yesterday a whole lot. I was quite able to use the stationary bike despite my broken foot. Put in 30 vigorous minutes (doesn't burn a whole lotta calories, but still). And then pretty much my e... Read more
Nasturtiums

I love nasturtiums! They are among the flowers I remember most fondly from earliest childhood: always planted against the white siding of my grandf... Read more
Stepping Outside
Friday, August 25, 2017      20 comments

My lunch recess walks aren't possible with the broken foot. And: I still haven't made it to the golf course (in a cart) -- maybe tonight. But even stepping outside my door at work helps quite a bit. Smelling the few late rugosa rose... Read more

It's Official . . .
Monday, August 21, 2017      31 comments

. . . yup, the x-ray shows that foot really IS broken. Right through. But the bones are not out of alignment which is a good thing. Expected 6-8 weeks for full recovery if I'm reasonably compliant. Thankfully I can use one of those... Read more
Increased Calorie Diligence!!
Sunday, August 20, 2017      29 comments

I've got a left foot injury. Not as a result of any activity other than simply stepping down on it oddly after sitting on the verandah. It twisted, I heard a snap, it got pretty swollen -- and I went to the emergency clinic. Such kind an... Read more
ReBeck Day 36 Believe It
Saturday, August 19, 2017      24 comments

A couple of us are quietly ReBecking via Spark Messaging and it's so helpful to refresh the techniques. Every Beck trek I seem to come at if from a slightly different angle -- presumably because I'm in a slightly different space. I do... Read more
Playing Hookey
Friday, August 18, 2017      24 comments

Yes, I did not go into work yesterday morning -- and instead snuck out for an early morning kayak in the swamp. Paddling up stream to start (quite a current) and then drifting lazily back downstream to the starting dock. It was a real wo... Read more

Our dear old golden retriever -- 13 in May -- is not doing well. His new pain meds prescribed about 10 days ago seemed to help. But yesterday before I got home from work he had what appears to have been a small seizure. Our vet has told u... Read more
Gorgeous evening
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      24 comments

The forecast for today had been thunder storms and so we figured it would be a good idea to sneak off to the golf course after work last evening. And it was a truly gorgeous couple of hours: perfect temperature, that fresh cut grass smell, ... Read more

Water Lily Swamp
Sunday, August 13, 2017      26 comments

We tried the water lily swamp north of our golf course and it was lovely lovely lovely. Yes, we were clever enough this time to set out up stream: but truly there was not much current at all. Very shallow. This has been a summer of torrential... Read more
