Booting the Boot!!
Monday, September 04, 2017      26 comments

OK then. Probably not the best possible decision. But the air cast on my broken foot was bugging me a whole lot. And so yesterday I tried an experiment of pretty much leaving it off all day -- and resting. And today? Les... Read more
Korean BBQ rib tortilla chips
Sunday, September 03, 2017      25 comments

I'd bought a bag of these when son was home in July -- and he didn't eat 'em. And they were still sitting in his room, unopened. Out of sight but clearly not out of mind. And . . . yesterday they were opened. I had about 10 -- ... Read more

I Like Fat
Friday, September 01, 2017      26 comments

No, not "being" fat -- I like consuming dietary fat. And I don't mean just virtuous polyunsaturated fats or monounsaturated fats -- although sure, I enjoy nuts and olive oil and avocado and . . . But nothing replaces real butter. [GAH... Read more
Stockpiling Fitness
Thursday, August 31, 2017      30 comments

Read an interesting short article this morning which comforted me quite a bit. Apparently senior age adults who've exercised their whole lives (except during periods of illness and recovery) obtain enduring health benefits. That would ... Read more

Kayaking
Monday, August 28, 2017      17 comments

No problems! With the dry sack over my boot, it was entirely possible to get out in the kayak yesterday. And . . . I'm really feeling it in my upper body this morning, right through to my core. Went a bit further upstream, digging hard ... Read more

At the Gym
Sunday, August 27, 2017      29 comments

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
