I am happy
Saturday, February 21, 2015      26 comments

Do you have those random moments when you become aware of happiness? Just walking down the second floor hall of my house on a Saturday morning -- dim and rather shabby-- heading up to get a third basket of laundry: and caught myself thinkin... Read more
Bzzzy Day --
Friday, February 20, 2015      21 comments

Sometimes the work just piles up and Friday is especially bzzzy -- if I'm hoping to have free time on the weekend. And that's OK. It was interesting. It was productive. DH was wearing his new bird-patterned bow tie that I found for h... Read more
Imitation Game
Thursday, February 19, 2015      30 comments

I don't get to the movies very often. But this was one we wanted to see: DH's mother worked as a code-breaker during WWII and we had enjoyed the Bletchley series on Netflix. What a brilliant movie about the development of the machine t... Read more
Why They Call it "Work"!!
Wednesday, February 18, 2015      26 comments

Because: it's work!! Yup, now I remember. Interesting, challenging, fascinating . . . and a significant portion of it still is something nobody would do voluntarily without being paid for it. *post-holiday head-nodding* OK ... Read more
When Dawns Are Dark And Dreary . . .
Tuesday, February 17, 2015      23 comments

When dawns are dark and dreary And days no promise bring When every cloud is weary Set out to meet the spring When every cloud is weary Set out to meet the spring!! On my, it's dark and dreary here today. Reminding me of this old... Read more
Still Cold Cold Cold
Monday, February 16, 2015      19 comments

It was all I could do to stick my head out the door long enough to pick up this morning's newspaper . . . BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! But: it's bright and sunny and supposed to warm up a bit (day started at -24C, and has now moved to -19C with anticipated... Read more
Too C-c-c-c-c-c-c-old!!!!
Sunday, February 15, 2015      31 comments

It WAS too cold to cross country ski. WAY too cold. Got into our ski clothes, got out to the golf course ski trails, got out of the car and the wind was blowing fiercely -- the kind of wind that makes your face feel immobile. Other skie... Read more
Happy Spontaneous Valentine's Day!
Saturday, February 14, 2015      28 comments

Love Valentine's Day -- and it's off to a good start! Yup, I mean: laundry and soup making (minestrone) are already done, and pretty soon and before I buy groceries I will be xc skiing even though it's cold cold cold. And it won't be pri... Read more
Why I Don't Post Photos (Often)
Friday, February 13, 2015      27 comments

Too dumb. Technically challenged. No kidding. Gahhh. So pleased that I actually managed to post one from my iPhone while on holidays -- and tried to post another and got it upside down and then had a hideous time figuring out h... Read more
Still Smiling Too!
Thursday, February 12, 2015      29 comments

I enjoyed SLENDERELLA's great blog, Still Smiling: as another long-time maintainer, she doesn't get a whole lotta real time recognition of her efforts, but yesterday somebody complimented her on looking great and asked if she'd lost a few more p... Read more
Don't Call it Exercise . . .
Tuesday, February 10, 2015      29 comments

, , , because if you do, you're likely to think you should reward yourself with extra food, says an article in today's Toronto Star! It's better to characterize the activity as a "nature walk" or "enjoying winter on a cross country ski" or ... Read more
Holiday Afterglow
Monday, February 09, 2015      28 comments

Sunset on the beach peaks about 20 minutes after the sun has gone down. Pink and coral and lavender wrapping right around the horizon. And yup: I'm right back at work, right back to working hard -- but still feeling terrific! Yest... Read more
I'm BAAAAAAAAAAACK!! And brought no new pounds with me . . .
Sunday, February 08, 2015      35 comments

Seeking forgiveness and understanding from dear Sparkie friends for failing to keep in touch for over two weeks. This was my first 2 week holiday in over 10 years -- a slightly belated celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary -- and so m... Read more
Cause and Effect Plus Preview
Thursday, January 22, 2015      29 comments

At Day 18 Siebold wants to distinguish between cause and effect. My core beliefs are the cause of my behaviour. When I was fat, I didn't believe that I could be fit. I needed to fix the cause of being fat. I needed to fix that co... Read more
Making Good Habits
Wednesday, January 21, 2015      24 comments

Siebold wants to say more Day 17 about why obesity is not a disease. He certainly carves out exceptions. If I have a psychiatric issue or an eating disorder I DO need trained medical help. (And of course if I have diabetes or some... Read more
