Day 113, Part 1: Farewell to Great Budworth
Friday, April 22, 2011      7 comments

I'll tell you, it is definitely warm here today - no cloud cover, hot sunshine, and the humidity is rising. Not generally my favorite when it comes to temps, but with the slowed metabolism (bleh) from the Lisinopril, I'm always cold, so - I'll t... Read more
Day 112, Part 2: ...to be continued...

I had hoped to get the rest of the pix posted, but alas, not to be. I'll do them tomorrow (Deo volente). I've been trying to do 30-40 minutes of mild cardio, in addition to the stretching / mild exercises for the 8-Week Diabetes Challenge.... Read more

I'm still always surprised to wander up to small parish churches virtually any old time and find the door unlocked. Most of them have a discreet sign welcoming visitors and asking to 'Please Close the Door Behind You.' That's not for any kind of... Read more
Day 111: Going to Great Budworth
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday was the serendipitous trip to Great Budworth - how's that for a name? Last fall we went to a place that has become a (relatively) national name as small villages go - Kibworth - and there are a lot of '--worth' place names. I suppose j... Read more
Day 110: ...and then there's the break in the routines--!
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      6 comments

What a good day today has been! First, there was a three-month review from the diabetes class I'd gone to last January / February. Altogether there were about a dozen people there, some from my group and some from a group that finished a ye... Read more
Day 108: Routines
Monday, April 18, 2011      8 comments

Dance routines. Morning routines. Comedy routines. Then there's the ordinary, day-to-day, same ol' same ol'. Today was the last. Twenty-some years ago I saw a movie called Parenthood. Mostly I wanted to see it because it had been ... Read more
Day 107: Headache(s)
Sunday, April 17, 2011      5 comments

I don't get migraines - for which I am eternally grateful - but I often get headaches that are real doozies. In this case, the infection has been quelled (dunno that it won't come back, but at least this antibiotic is more powerful than the prev... Read more
Day 107: Ordinary, but Satisfying...
Saturday, April 16, 2011      3 comments

Nothing remarkable about this day in the annals of Life, but a decent day even so. Sat down to watch the Formula 1 qualifying trials with Himself, tho I spent most of the time reading and working on puzzles. What a welcome break that is! I just ... Read more
Day 106, Part II: End o'the Day
Friday, April 15, 2011      5 comments

Got some things done around the house. Most importantly I went to the fitness class and did pretty well, all in all - I took it slowly (keep in mind, I'm the youngest in the group, but there are several 'oldsters' who can run rings around me, lo... Read more
Day 106, Part 1: BEATLEBAND!
Friday, April 15, 2011      6 comments

I woke up a little earlier than usual this morning - it will take a day or two for the sinusitis to quiet down (now that I have an antibiotic) and until then, sleep is not very high-quality. Beatleband! One of the reviews I read describes i... Read more
Day 105: Another Day Older...
Thursday, April 14, 2011      10 comments

...dunno about the 'deeper in debt,' but most likely, tho this year I didn't have to pay in. No wins, no losses, just an even draw, lol. If I think about it I feel very guilty about not keeping up with my Sparkin'. I have very little free t... Read more
Day 104: A Good Day...
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      8 comments

Another short one tonight, but there's a good reason it's short: I liked what PattyCake wrote (I think it's the top comment on yesterday's blog) because - just as some of you others pointed out - it's important to make time for 'the good stuff.'... Read more
Day 103: I Need to Get ORGANIZED--!
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      11 comments

I know, don't we all? But today was another of those so-scattered-it's-chaos days. In fact, when we finally had a chance to sit down this evening and catch our respective breaths, we had quite the discussion about what day of the week it was. I ... Read more
Day 102: Where Am I? Why'm I here?!?
Monday, April 11, 2011      8 comments

I don't know where the day went. The usual detritus, I guess - grocery day (it IS Monday, right?)... eBay... a little (VERY little) bit of exercise... a little TV... and so on. In 'Amadeus' at one point Costanza tells Salieri 'Money just se... Read more
Day 101: Lah di dah, lah di dah...
Sunday, April 10, 2011      8 comments

Nothing to say, really. It was a nice Sunday, beautiful outside, got a few things done, watched the race with Himself (well, I was doing a puzzle, but even so), baked salmon for supper (yum!), Hawaii 5-0 (can't help it, I like the cast and the b... Read more
