Anniversary: 37th!!

An Excellent Imitation
Tuesday, June 21, 2016      22 comments

Just riffing back and forth with a Sparkie friend about how difficult it is for young people to grow up today . . . And I was reminded: quite often I feel about my own self that I've never really grown up. Oh yeah, I do an excellent i... Read more
Flamingo!
Monday, June 20, 2016      20 comments

OK, the new top is pretty, uh, flamboyant for work . . . so I'll tone it down today with very low key "other pieces". Beige cotton pencil skirt (plain, but with a pretty flutter of pleaty detail at the back). And beige linen jacket (I ... Read more
At My Bird Feeder . . .
Sunday, June 19, 2016      17 comments

The bird feeder outside my window at work is a source of pleasure and distraction, for me and sometimes my clients too. There is quite an aggressive group of blue-necked, yellow-eyed blackbirds: the squirrel baffler springs are set just tig... Read more

Weight Loss and Better Health
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      21 comments

Weight loss isn't always equivalent to better health. And adopting a "war on the body" stance isn't conducive to long-term weight maintenance OR health. Yeah. We know that. But it never hurts to remind ourselves! www.thegl... Read more
Stress Recedes
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      22 comments

Oh yeah. And you can bet: that feels so good. Nobody wants a receding hairline. Or receding gums! But receding stress is terrific. I've been waiting for it, patiently. Doing everything I could to hasten the process. Ahhhhhhhh!!! ... Read more
LGBTQ2S
Monday, June 13, 2016      29 comments

Some of us are gay. But none of us can be feeling gay (jubilant) today. In June: Pride Month. Let there be an end to this hatred. Gratitude to those political leaders both north and south of our border -- Obama, Clinton, Trudeau... Read more

Today and tomorrow, I've got a conference lined up that promises to be pretty fascinating: that whole "high conflict personality" stuff that teaches us how to think flexibly, so we can manage our emotions, so we can moderate our behaviours (and ... Read more

Tripped over a comment by BESSHAILE in which she says that making weight loss her "hobby" was a route to success for her. A hobby is an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation. Yup. Weight... Read more

Cardiologist (who is 10 years younger than me) says he wishes he'd be able to do as well on a stress test . . . final definitive test and I'm A-OK! Now that's heartening . . . absolutely. Particularly given I'm still not 100% post-cold! A... Read more
