Day 1 Faster Pace and No Cheese
Tuesday, June 06, 2017      9 comments

Yes, I'm motivated by the 94-year-old, two-time cancer survivor and half-marathoner I wrote about in Sunday's blog. I've decided to get with the program and stop being a lazy daisy during walks. This morning's pace was an improvement; the awar... Read more
Even the 94-year-old Half-Marathoner is Faster than Me!
Monday, June 05, 2017      9 comments

See yesterday's blog about this amazing lady. I had to laugh out loud when I read that she does a 17 minute mile because that's faster than me. I've often blogged about what a slow poke walker I am. I think it's time to speed up. (smiling.... Read more

Nose-End Zit, Spark Friends, Cheese Addiction
Saturday, June 03, 2017      11 comments

About a month ago, I developed that regrettable little bump that indicates a zit is forthcoming; unfortunately, it's right on the end of my nose. Of course, I tried to self-operate and that only made it worse and last longer. During the pa... Read more

Today is a dear friend's birthday, and I'm taking him to Red Lobster for lunch. Haven't been there is several months and love the shrimp tacos. Looking forward to that. June is here and I'm thrilled that this year has been a relief after ... Read more

Wow, it boggles my mind how quickly this year is blowing away with May coming to an end already. Where did the time go? I'll be trying to figure out some goals for June, or at least one. (smiling) Have a wonderful day, friends.... Read more
Remembering and Honoring
Monday, May 29, 2017      9 comments

I don't think I could be as brave as they were. I've never taken their precious gift for granted. With gratitude, I start my day. Not just today, but every day.... Read more
Barbecue Panic
Sunday, May 28, 2017      11 comments

Panic over the fact that I am the griller. And, although I usually resist in daily life, I LOVE beef hot dogs. (with mustard and sauerkraut) So, once again, it's about moderation. I'll be barbecuing hamburgers and hot dogs. (and then veggies) ... Read more

The "Let's Pretend" Calorie Game
Saturday, May 27, 2017      12 comments

I have to admit that I was completely taken by surprise when I finally looked at the package after "munching" on cashews. I mean, c'mon. How can nine little nuts equal 178 calories? And 133 of those calories from fat? Are you kidding me? ... Read more
WHOSE NOSE IS THAT IN THE MIRROR?
Friday, May 26, 2017      10 comments

Ever since learning that our ears and nose continues to grow throughout our lives, I have watched my nose gradually change. Not that it's a constant source of attention (smiling), but sometimes I look in the mirror and see a very different nos... Read more

Thursday, May 25, 2017      9 comments

Ever since watching the film "Under the Tuscan Sun" many years ago, I've had a romanticized view of buying something in Italy and transforming it to live in. So when I recently read that Italy is giving away these small castles, I just had to r... Read more
Laziness, Shampoo, Watermelon
Wednesday, May 24, 2017      13 comments

I have been recently hit by a strong wave of exercise laziness which is very unusual for me. I haven't succumbed to it - yet - and am fighting like crazy and continuing to keep moving. I intend to win until this wave passes. It's way too easy... Read more
Watching Space Station Repairs in Real Time this Morning
Tuesday, May 23, 2017      13 comments

I've been tuning in periodically to watch the repairs on the space station, and it always boggles my mind that I am watching what is so far out in space right here on earth. I forgot the female astronaut's name, but she is the oldest woman who'... Read more
Wearing Out RunningShoes So Fast
Sunday, May 21, 2017      11 comments

I have tried a variety of shoes over the years, and they only last about six months. All I do is walk in them. A lot. I guess that's why. But I wonder if there are any brands built to last. Any suggestions? Wishing all a fun day.... Read more
