Taking to the mat when I can't take it on the road

Saturday, November 01, 2014

Its that time of year when the festivals and art shows run nearly every weekend and if we are not setting up for a show, we are busy making more product and trying to fit in all the things that keep our lives so busy.

Yesterday I spent the morning helping out at my grandson's Halloween party. I loved every minute of it! The costumes and excitement was contagious. Last night it was a blast handing out candy to the other trick or treaters.

My daughter once again changed jobs and while I am very happy that she landed such a good one, the hours interfere with my morning walks. Sh*%! Between 3 day shows, and schedule changes, this morning was the first moment I've had to get a good long walk in. I enjoyed every moment of it!

I did buy an exercise mat to fit some sort of exercise in when I am in a time crunch, but my favorite way to get my exercise in is to get out and walk. Push comes to shove, a little exercise is better than no exercise.

End of the Flu

Sunday, August 31, 2014

For the past week I have been fighting the flue. Sore throat, cough, headache, fever and chills. Felt better this morning and decided some exercise would be good. However, I was not able to walk as far as normal, but at least I got out. Taking a shower and back to bed.

TUT - A Note from the Universe 8/14/2014

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Just look to those who already possess as you wish to possess or who have already achieved as you wish to achieve, and ask yourself whether or not they have some special gift that you don't have? If they have more angels than you? If they're any more loved than you are now loved? If they have suffered more, worked harder, or waited longer than you? If I would permit them to be "luckier" or have it easier than you? And you will see, after careful consideration, that their success depended upon none of these things. It arrived simply because they expected it to arrive, and then lived their lives accordingly.

Boom, there it is -
The Universe

Oh yeah, this note really makes sense to me.

Rainbows!

Sunday, July 27, 2014

The combination of high heat and high humidity is really starting to wear on me and the rest of the desert dwellers. My enthusiasm for getting up early to exercise is gone. While we are in the middle of monsoon season, we rarely get rain. When we do, it's localized and only hits small areas. Mostly it builds up, drizzles a tiny bit and fizzles out. The past three mornings were stifling, but nothing like this morning.

Our shirts were plastered to our bodies shortly after we started walking, and rivulets of sweat ran down our necks. For the first 3 miles the only thing we waved to was the gnats that buzzed annoyingly around our heads. As the sun came up over the mountains we enjoyed cool breezes and the sharp contrast of the stormy sky to our left and the gorgeous pastel clouds around us. As we walked on, we could just start to make out the beginnings of a rainbow.
Gradually, it became a full blown arch that stretched out completely in front of us and a second one that never became as prominent. Well worth getting out of bed for!
