Saturday, February 28, 2015      19 comments

It's February 28. Last day of the month!! And I see a 100% rating on my Trivia questions for February. Sure, it helped that February is a short month. Only 28 days. (And given how cold it's been: who would want MORE February???) ... Read more

Sitting With Emotions: a moving experience!

Thursday, February 26, 2015      25 comments

I really enjoyed the comments on yesterday's blogs. It's interesting to me: lots of people have never used excess pounds for "protection": and they seem to be people who've not experienced huge spikes in weight. Makes sense. So, continu... Read more

We're right back into it this morning at -22C. And more snow too! Finding my newspaper in the driveway required great bravery and considerable search-and-rescue skills: I can well understand that the delivery person doesn't want to get out... Read more

Lovely Weekend Continues . . .

OK, then: the scales at the gym (proper balance beam scales) weigh me a full pound lighter than the scales (cheapy digital) at home. Guessing you can tell which scales I prefer!! Had my olive green leather pants taken in dramatically (... Read more

I am happy

Saturday, February 21, 2015      26 comments

Do you have those random moments when you become aware of happiness? Just walking down the second floor hall of my house on a Saturday morning -- dim and rather shabby-- heading up to get a third basket of laundry: and caught myself thinkin... Read more

Bzzzy Day --

Friday, February 20, 2015      21 comments

Why They Call it "Work"!!

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      26 comments

Because: it's work!! Yup, now I remember. Interesting, challenging, fascinating . . . and a significant portion of it still is something nobody would do voluntarily without being paid for it. *post-holiday head-nodding* OK ... Read more

It was all I could do to stick my head out the door long enough to pick up this morning's newspaper . . . BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! But: it's bright and sunny and supposed to warm up a bit (day started at -24C, and has now moved to -19C with anticipated... Read more
