Long Walk Yesterday

Monday, November 09, 2015      2 comments

Long for me anyway. My walks have been home to bus and bus to work. Granted it is a good walk, mostly uphill in the bus to work part so I get a good workout and then trot up the steps once inside the building. Yesterday DB and I walked a trail t... Read more

Starting Again

Sunday, October 25, 2015      1 comments

I started again in August after an absence. And starting again. Work has been crazy, both in amount and supervision. Tracking started today. DB and I walked yesterday but today was full of errands and cleaning. The dust buffalo are roaming at ... Read more

Long time to be out of it

Saturday, August 29, 2015      0 comments

Long time-no entry. Not even thinking about Sparking. DB having carpal tunnel surgery (both hands, one at a time) and work going crazy has left me zero time to do anything. Yesterday work was a 12 hour day; I started at 5:30am and left at 5:30pm... Read more

Walking at the conference

Tuesday, June 16, 2015      0 comments

I am at a fiber conference in St. Paul, MN. Extraordinarily beautiful campus. I still get up at 5am but instead of getting ready for work I go for a walk. Each morning I have logged over 40 minutes before breakfast. Tomorrow morning is the las... Read more

Double Ouch!

Thursday, May 28, 2015      0 comments

Somewhere along the walking/not walking, we do not know where, I have a shin-splint. It is painful enough that it was waking me up at night. Now I have exercises and prescription to take care of it. But man, it is a pain! It was the push to... Read more

I did not realize how much of yesterday I was standing/walking until this morning. It was the spring Shepherds Market at the Amana Woolen Mill. Fabulous day - partly cloudy most of the day but became sunny in the late afternoon. I was there wit... Read more

After a weekend in the car - so it felt. Saturday to parents then 2 hours north to an open house of a great group of fiber people and home it was a lot of time in the car. Sunday was not so bad but it felt like I did not do much. I parked far ... Read more

Not walking to work yet but moving forward

Sunday, May 03, 2015      1 comments

I had great plans in my previous blog - setting the alarm earlier and walking to work but it has not happened. I have not reset my alarm because I really do not want to go to work right now. I have been feeling blindsided. In January, the d... Read more

Walking my legs off

Saturday, April 11, 2015      1 comments

This past week at work has been a killer in more ways than one. We had 11 students/faculty here from Russia collaborating with the students/faculty of one of our classes. I was running up and down stairs all Monday and Tuesday setting things u... Read more

Doing it all the wrong way

Wednesday, March 18, 2015      1 comments

I am down 8 lbs in less than a week but it is all the wrong way. I am angry/sad/pissed off and not eating. It has become much, much easier to just have my protein drink and a packet of tuna at work. Saves me a lot of time in the morning - lunch... Read more

I feel lost

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      1 comments

I feel like I am pulled in too many directions and am losing focus on everything. My Dad is still hanging on (in Hospice) and Mom is becoming a bit more frail every week when I go to help. I want to do more things at home (knit/weave/spin/c... Read more

Plodding along

Saturday, December 20, 2014      1 comments

Today was the last day of finals at the law school. We have nine days as opposed to the five days for the major part of the university. I had five exams I was proctoring. Most were three hour exams with two four hour ones. That meant I had a... Read more

And more wildlife

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      1 comments

Last night I made a flying trip to my parents to pick up some papers. Fortunately I was driving slower than the speed limit when a doe crossed the road (well-traveled road) a few yards in front of the car. She was in front of me and passed befo... Read more

Wildlife while walking

Sunday, November 02, 2014      1 comments

Now that the time has changed walking--long walking only happens on weekends. Soon it will be dark when I go to work and when I get out. Today I almost left it too late. But when I was walking at a favorite park a dog walker told me there had b... Read more

Thursday, September 25, 2014      0 comments

The last two Saturdays, Wednesday, and today had huge chunks of time spent threading and making ready three looms at a museum and historical village for this weekend. It is the fall festival and I have been weaving on one loom for approximately ... Read more
