the more things change....
I am here again in the office where I work looking at the snow outside. We had quite a Spring storm last night, it is too slippery outside for my noon walk, even around the ol' parking lot....

I am going to write a blog.
I m here at the office where I do my consulting work, looking at the snow fall (for once we have a winter day) and I thought I should check in.
I love reading the blogs from my sparkfriends and I think that mine pale in comparison. Nothing... Read more
I am definitely not used to this.
Who is getting up at 4:30 AM?
Who is doing housecleaning before it is light out?
Who is going on the treadmill at 6 AM?
The answer is moi, and I am definitely not used to this.
I am managing 6 1/2 to 7 hours sleep a night, so... Read more
My life has moved into supersonic speed, or at least that is how it feels for now. I think most folks who work everyday feel that way all the time.
I am doing the consulting work, which I find fascinating. But, I have to get up an hour ea... Read more
Well, Sparkfriends, it does appear that I will begin consulting work on Monday, lasting through to the end of June! I have a contract from the organization, I am showing up on Monday morning to sign it and to start getting set up. The work is ... Read more
I'm blogging from my iPad today, I think I mentioned I upgraded, this one has plenty of space (64g) and is a pretty gold color.
The questionable patch of skin on my forehead has shrivelled and fallen off, now I have a bright pink circle t... Read more
doctors, medicine, more doctors, pre-cancer skin spot treated, whew!
I am still spinning from Monday. I went to my annual medical. Surprisingly, my doctor was not overly alarmed by my weight but she said no more gain! She believes in some padding if older folk fall down.
I seem to be basic... Read more
I should blog about something, anything, but not very inspired.
I am looking our from the window in my study on the second floor of our house and it is snowing. It rained for the last two days, and then, even with the temperature a few degrees above freezing, look at the snow!
I m going to my doctor fo... Read more
First blog from my iPhone
And I type with one finger😊.
January has started out very cold here in the north, I am sure many of you are coping with it as well. Pulled out the down cost, it doesn't disappoint. This is not some designer product for hundreds of dollars,... Read more
Well, I did not have the opportunity to walk outside today so this evening, after the Sabbath was over, on the treadmill I went. Very committed to my five miles a day. I had recorded "The Help" movie and was quite looking forward to the hour. ... Read more
Well, I guess I am following the curve and reflecting on 2015. It is interesting, DH and I have had a few discussions about the past year already and he has a much more positive spin on it than I do.
So here it is, presented in the most ... Read more
An abandoned Fitbit....
When I come into the Emergency Department to do my volunteer shift, I often find bits and pieces of things left behind. Scarves, gloves...one time it was an iPad which I brought to the Lost and Found very quickly.
So today, on the little d... Read more
What it's like for me to do 5 miles all at once.
Well, my feet hurt.
I knew that I will not be going out today, so I decided to change things up by doing a 10 min stroll, my usual treadmill workout, and then an extra 10 min stroll all pretty much after one another to get the 5+ miles.

I felt like #$%*& yesterday!
Boy, I got up yesterday morning ready and willing to walk to synagogue, et. But then, I feel a soreness in my throat, and was coughing a bit. As well, DH is recovering rom a pretty bad head cold. So, we decided to stay in.
Good decision... Read more
I lived the stereotype!
Oh my goodness, it has long been a tradition in my faith and culture that Christmas Eve is the time to eat out and go to the movies.
So, DH and I ate out and went to the movies. We went to a late afternoon show of Star Wars VII. Don't w... Read more
