Now We're Cooking!!
Sunday, March 31, 2019      31 comments

The kitchen reno is NOT complete -- no back splash yet, still some electrical to do -- but we've shut down the temp kitchen in the second floor laundry room and are slowly moving in to the "kitchen kitchen". DH was thrilled to make himself... Read more

Ancient Wisdom
Friday, March 29, 2019      27 comments

No no no: not mine -- although I am getting ridiculously old in dog years (trying not to be that common sobriquet for a lady dog though) AND even in human years. I've been thinking about the ancient wisdom of Aristotle. On the one ha... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Size 10 Feet
Thursday, March 28, 2019      117 comments

My feet are size 10. That's a fact. Oh, occasionally I buy a size 11 or a size 9 1/2 or even a 9: but I don't berate myself about my shoe size ever. I don't think that I could diet my feet down to a size 6 or even a size 8.. Not gonna happen.... Read more
You Can Do Whatever You Want: Shout Out to MARINGAL
Tuesday, March 26, 2019      27 comments

These are words that my DH particularly likes to hear. And yes, it took decades of marital bliss (!) before I figured out just how much those words mean to him. (I know I know -- but the impact of a parent essentially saying repeatedl... Read more
Reno Report
Monday, March 25, 2019      27 comments

No no no: not done. There have been a few bumps in the road -- including an unfortunate fender bender for our general contractor. He's kept soldiering on, marshalling his troops: really heroic. But he himself is experiencing back pain a... Read more

Tree to Tree
Friday, March 22, 2019      24 comments

I've got a great third-floor place for my balance exercises -- a relatively narrow hall dormer leading to the third floor deck. Where if I lose my balance I can briefly touch the wall on either side. Even better, I'm looking into forest -... Read more
Recess Walk
Thursday, March 21, 2019      20 comments

Yesterday I had a long day rising early to head into the big city -- and had to miss my morning work out + stretch routine. The commuter train is not full of happy, fit-looking people. And I am so grateful that I no longer have to make th... Read more

Stronger in the Broken Places?
Wednesday, March 13, 2019      23 comments

OK then. Nothing is broken. But: I have broken my left foot. Twice. Once as a child, once in August 2017. And as I work on my tree pose, I can't help but notice. The left foot is stronger and more stable than the right foot. ... Read more
Such an aspirational blog
Tuesday, March 12, 2019      19 comments

Yesterday's blog certainly was aspirational (spelled with just one "s" actually). And of course that should have prepared me for an exceptionally tough day. Too much going on in too many different areas of my life simultaneously. Challe... Read more
