My mother always said "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." It has been in this spirit that I have been quiet over the past month. This winter has just worn me down. We have been waking up to below zero temperatures for... Read more

I was going to wait until mid afternoon when the temperature was suppose to be 28 degrees, but Daisy just couldn't wait. I was in my office trying to get some work done and she kept visiting me with that "you said we could take a walk today mom... Read more

Saturday, January 06, 2018      13 comments

I really needed this day to come along. For the last 3 weeks or so I have really fallen away from my exercise plans. First it was the holidays interfering with my days. It seemed like there was always so much to do, although I sure didn't do ... Read more

So many years ago I danced to this song. We were called the Jan Gillespie Dancers (Jan Gillespie being our fearless leader). We performed nightly at a club called Diamond Lil's - the counterpart to Diamond Jim. I was young, energetic, full of... Read more

I am just back from my first ever 5K walk. In Minneapolis they have hosted a 5K Walk/Run which they call the Turkey Trot every year for several years now. Most years some or all of my children participate. I have always thought they were a bi... Read more
The blessings of a broken dishwasher
Wednesday, November 22, 2017      11 comments

I spent much of my lifetime without a dishwasher and I have to admit, I was envious of my friends who just had to clear their tables and put the dishes in the dishwasher. But then, I did have 5 children and their special reward for turning 6 wa... Read more

On Saturdays I have a Root Yoga class that I really enjoy - the teacher is one of the best. But I just couldn't do it this morning. I overslept - or actually I apparently turned off my little fitbit alarm and slept on for another hour. It mus... Read more

They said it would and it's not that I didn't believe, I didn't WANT to believe. But Tom and I spent most of yesterday preparing, yet hoping for a reprieve. Although yesterday there were certainly snow clouds in the sky and by evening a light ... Read more

Daisy and I decided to walk a little further today - it's probably the last really nice day we'll have for awhile. They are telling us 2 - 3 inches of snow by end of day tomorrow. So shortly I need to get myself outside to finish up with all t... Read more
Daisy's enjoying the parks
Thursday, October 12, 2017      15 comments

We've been trying to get out for some hikes in the parks around us to enjoy the beautiful fall weather - and enjoy as much of the out doors as we can before the snow flies. And around here that could be any day - or several weeks. I'm hoping f... Read more

First, thank you all for your well wishes - they must have helped. I knew I was feeling better last night when I started thinking about all the projects I hadn't done during the week. My plan was to take care of them today; but plans change. ... Read more
