Sheepish
Sunday, November 18, 2018      30 comments

Sheepskin slippers? I'm wearing them right now. Yes, they are expensive -- but the ones I received last Christmas replaced a pair at least 8 years old . . . and they are so warm. Necessary in our 1889 house which can be chilly. I also bought ... Read more
Comforting Routine
Saturday, November 17, 2018      31 comments

Yes, it's fun to do special stuff. I do look forward to holidays, to meeting up with friends, to kids coming home . . . of course I do. Sometimes it's even fun to buy special stuff. For example, I've been debating whether I will buy a new pa... Read more

The snow is downy this morning -- a fresh fall lying lightly on the pines. (A huge ridge, NOT so downy, at the end of the driveway: requiring the at... Read more

You Want It Darker
Wednesday, November 14, 2018      30 comments

I've been listening to this wonderful "last album" song by Leonard Cohen, as we move towards the "darkest evening of the year". You want it darker? Well, maybe not so much what I want as what IS. Especially in November. And there... Read more
Dark dark dark . . .
Tuesday, November 13, 2018      29 comments

Just before 8 am and it's still dark here -- with snow expected. So: I've turned on my "daylight" over my computer . . . for a few minutes of "sunshine". Planning to get out for a recess walk to experience whatever natural light is ... Read more
First Snow Carnations
Sunday, November 11, 2018      26 comments

A bit of a tradition for me . . . white carnations with white pine branches and the white roofs outside the window in honour of the first snow whi... Read more
Lying Low!
Saturday, November 10, 2018      24 comments

Yes yes yes: yesterday went OK (as well as could be expected) and now I'm taking it easy easy easy. Laundering the clothes I was wearing last Saturday at the vet made me cry. But: no regrets at all. It was the right thing to do. ... Read more
Snow Today
Friday, November 09, 2018      25 comments

It's going to be one of those soft grey days just above freezing with snow drifting down. I've got a rather stressful thingy to do today -- out of office, lunch maybe at my golf club (which will be close by) and I know that I can get a hea... Read more
Keeping On Keeping On
Thursday, November 08, 2018      24 comments

Really that's the essence of maintenance, isn't it? We keep on keeping on: no matter what. We keep on keeping on eating healthily. We keep on keeping on exercising. And we keep on keeping on managing our emotions and our 60... Read more
Stretching
Tuesday, November 06, 2018      30 comments

Why why why do I need to learn over and over again what a treat stretching is for my body? It makes me feel physically good all day. It helps me stand taller and straighter and improves my flexibility and my balance. I walk mor... Read more
Late Fall Hike
Monday, November 05, 2018      31 comments

We went for a long walk in the woods yesterday to a favourite place of Charlie's. Because it's been months since he could comfortably get into the car or enjoy it, we haven't been there for a while. It hadn't seemed right to go without him. ... Read more
With Thanks for your Sympathy
Sunday, November 04, 2018      32 comments

Charlie taught me, "Not my food." If we'd say, "Leave it", he would never dream of helping himself. Not to steak, not even to butter: and these were among his favourites. He only had to be told once as a small puppy and he never forgot. . ... Read more
Goodbye Dear Charlie
Saturday, November 03, 2018      52 comments

We knew that the day was coming. And Charlie told us: today, please. We listened. He lived a long long life: 14 years and 6 months which is ... Read more
