Unwanted Weight Loss
This morning I had the kind of weight loss that nobody wants. Forgive me if this is too much information. It consisted of at least 6, maybe as many as 8 bowel movements followed by dry heaves (the abdominal workout not found on SP). Once I st... Read more
Tonight I had just finished a work out. Jewels sauntered over from her nap. She laid on the floor beside me, arching her back, like she does so often. My back was a little sore, so I though "I should stretch like that."
It was pretty h... Read more
Words of Life
I was working in stress-land today. I don't really know where the thought came from. All I know is that sometime this morning I started deep breathing when I was feeling tension. I'd say: "you are loved" when I breathed in and "you are beauti... Read more
Procrastination vs. Planning
I don't like to clean. I'm never sure how long it has been since I cleaned something last. Whenever I get around to it, things are significantly dirty. I have had passing fancies that someday I will be better at it. Today it occurred to me t... Read more
As I was making spring rolls for dinner, I heard a light knock. I had my hands in food, so it took a moment to get to the door. I looked through the peep hole, and saw a man in a blue or grey T-shirt with non-descript dark hair slip around the... Read more
I was back to work today. The morning seemed to be treating me just fine. Then Kelly walked in with donuts. She's an exceptional baker. It's what she does for a living. These were not just any donuts. I could tell by the smell they were fr... Read more
It All Needs to Move Forward Together
I have a natural bent toward putting all my eggs in one basket. I know that this is very poor investment management, but somehow I struggle to remember that when investing my life. Awhile ago, I stopped exercising and taking care of my body to... Read more
Garden Happiness and a Silly Cat
I am so happy with my little garden. It's nowhere near weeded all the way. I have lots of pots to refurbish. So much to do! Yet what makes me happy is the process. I love to dig in the dirt and make things grow. It's a kind of living creat... Read more
I cannot fully explain what happened between asleep and awake this morning. It was an emotionally healing thing for me. I came to understand more of why I am so bonded to my cat.
My mother was very ill and almost died when I was 4 years... Read more
Today has been a harder day. I was out a bit late last night with friends, so I woke up late. Jewels was whiney this morning. Apart from an endless stream of canned cat food, I couldn't figure out what she wanted. Even kitties need some sens... Read more
I awoke feeling spunkier than I have the last few days. Things with the writing project went more quickly, since I was thinking clearly. I keep finding things that need to be fixed. I don't know if my hope of finishing this week is realistic,... Read more
Sunshine is Awesome!
Sunshine has been a gift today! I pulled a few weeds in the yard. It only took 15 minutes for my butt to say, "you don't do this very often!" I look forward to the day when the derriere more accustomed to it.
I went for a lovely walk o... Read more

1st Day of Vacation
This morning, I slept in. I stayed in bed after I started to wake up, because Jewels was snuggled up on top of me. There's something about kitty lovin's on the first day of vacation that just makes a body not want to move.
I got up, had... Read more
Finish, Finish, Finish!
I've been working on a writing project for two years now. I've taken vacation time for final editing. All I can hear in my head is the voice from one of my work out videos saying, "Finish, finish, finish!" I'm a little nervous, but hopefully ... Read more
