Monday, February 11, 2013      6 comments

Saturday, December 29, 2012      6 comments

Sometimes life throws us what seems to be unfair, unattainable, unimaginable, unexpected and/or unwanted. Seems we drive our lives like an approaching storm. The wind in the storm isn't deterred by obstacles in its path, rather it circumvents ... Read more

I am so happy with the fitbit one in conjunction with my daily workout. I am definitely not in good shape so when I blog I am just happy with the exercise I am able to do. The fitbit sends little messages as prompts to get moving if I have bee... Read more

Thankful

Monday, December 24, 2012      4 comments

Many of us seem to dwell on the negative in life rather then the many positives effecting our lives. Don't believe me, read almost any post on spark and you see we dwell on what we had done or had imagined was done to us, diverting us from suc... Read more

Making Time

Sunday, December 23, 2012      4 comments

Wouldn't that be wonderful, be able to add time to our day. Since I haven't discovered the secret to time travel, the fountain of youth or any other magical solutions, my goal will be to make time. Something we can all do once we set our mind ... Read more

Trout Pond

Monday, May 10, 2010      1 comments

I spent the afternoon at Coopers Rock Trout Pond. The day was sunny and somewhat breezy. Not so cool you would need a jacket but enough you did need a long sleeve shirt. There were already three people fishing when I arrived and no one had cau... Read more
