Today is food prep day. I usually cook enough of one grain to last for a week but I still have lots of quinoa in the fridge so focussed on other items. Two eggs hard boiled, ready to go into salads; 1/2 can of chickpeas oven roasted with a coa... Read more

Happiness often arises from accomplishment so yesterday's plank routine fits the bill. Four 1 minute planks, one full arm, three from elbows and then, hear the drum roll... One full arm for 2 and 1/2 minutes. No rest between reps either! One ... Read more

Tuesday, January 16, 2018      4 comments

I woke later than usual this morning (15 minutes, lol) and stuck my nose out from under the comforter and it was "cold". Thought maybe I could shift my rest day for core exercises and enjoy the warmth a little longer but then the guilty bug fo... Read more
# 20- "Blue Monday"...Not in my Books!
Monday, January 15, 2018      6 comments

Some marketing wag has created the term "Blue Monday". Apparently that is today, the third Monday of January, the day when we supposedly experience the most sadness in our lives. The morning show DJ on CBC played "happy songs" ad nauseum to ch... Read more

Our heat wave is over and a dusting of snow greeted me this morning. Great conditions for walking however so 3 miles done with another 1 or 2 later today. I often encounter the same cashier at my local supermarket; in the beginning she was al... Read more

Singing!!! After a 5 week hiatus we had our first chorus practice today; many have returned for the second 10 week session and several newbies have joined so it was a meet and greet and get back in the saddle effort. As our conductor remarked,... Read more

Happiness is not just the opposite of sadness. It is not always easy to find and today is a case in point. I have had a yen for fresh greens to make a big a**ed salad and so I bought a clamshell of organic spinach and field greens this week.... Read more

Tuesday, January 09, 2018      3 comments

Finding the "happy" in every day is a positive exercise, it's making me take notice of the small, everyday things that keep my body and soul together. Yesterday I moved snow for two straight hours, in the past I would have marked that as my fi... Read more

Those of us who have children or grandchildren know all too well the "joys" of getting dressed for winter weather; the orphan mitten, the "I don't want to wear a hat", the snow boots yet again on the wrong feet, the endless stuffing of squirming... Read more

Just back from Halifax after a visit with my kids, good happy fun! Nova Scotia is a narrow province and I live one hour or 60km (35 miles) from them but today it seemed like two different countries. Beautiful blue sky and sunshine there, here ... Read more
