�I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.�
― Jeanette Winterson

It's a magical world, and I am exploring. (to paraphrase Calvin)

***end of 2014*** I need to get re-focused and make exercise a regular part of the day. Since losing 20+ pounds with SP several years ago, my life got somewhat complicated, and the weight started creeping back up. As 2014 ends, I'm rethinking what I need to do to reach my goals.....

How is it "too hot" up here? Ummmm...I dunno! I'm not acclimated to your temps? It can get beyond 100 F here, but not often. When it was that hot when I was a kid, we couldn't even walk on the pavement in our bare feet. We'd often want to try and fry an egg on the sidewalk but mom wouldn't let us because it was a waste of an egg. She always was the type to rain on our parade. Kind of still is. Poor mom.
Also I get heat stroke fairly easily when I exercise mid day in the summer in full sun, unless I'm swimming. Before I lost all of this weight I could not stand the humidity here and compared to "here" and say, Nashville (the only slightly southern place I have been in the summer) it's DRY.
Now, go ahead and ask me how I survive winters at -30 C. Answer: long underwear, lots of layers, a fire and a man. Why are men always so hot? And I don't mean in the RDJ kind of way. Temperature wise.

That rainstorm lasted about 3 minutes. The weather has been amazing - sunny and warm. And to think that less than a month ago the lake was frozen, I saw my neighbour skiing on the lake, there was 3 feet of snow on the garden and I was still wearing long johns! We are expecting a little rain on Monday and next Friday.

Have a great Sunday!

Work less, play more.
Thanks for the wings. JF did arrive back as scheduled with the plan from Chicago arriving early in Ottawa thanks to tail winds. He arrived home at 1 a.m. completely burnt out and spent the next day recovering.
:-D
Have a groovy Wednesday!!

The round cards are called Motherpeace. They are far more feminine than any other deck I have worked with and I love them. They were created waaaaaay back in 1982! I've had my deck since the early 90's and they are extremely well worn now.
Thanks for the thumbs up on the photo. How did your reading go?
