My regular work week was changed up with some fun things -- a drinks meeting with my collaborative colleagues, and two days of mediation training.
The mediation techniques are meant to enhance my work in collaborative practice -- and there... Read more
Do you love perfume as much as I do?

Yesterday I turned 60!! SIXTY!!
OK, cannot believe it. And have to say, turning 60 is probably the most traumatic "big birthday" I've experienced since 40. When my husband had to take me to Bermuda for a week. And arrange a catered p... Read more

The anticipation at this time of the year makes life zesty! All better times to come!! There are a few yellow and purple crocuses in bloom in my garden -- news ones, which I planted last fall, close to the back door where I'll see them every t... Read more
What a gorgeous day: sunny, +8C, red winged blackbirds and robins singing me along the road for shopping day with my sister!!.
Over the course of the day, ingested: several skim milk lattes; tomato soup; spanakopita; an apple. AND choco... Read more
OK, probably a blip.
Maybe there will be a full 24 hours at this "new weight" -- and maybe tomorrow I'll have to put the weight tracker back up again.
And I will. If necessary. Really.
And maybe it will be Sunday morning which... Read more
Oh, my, how I hate to do this.
From my low of 145 to 146 a few days ago: and today up another half pound to 146.5.
But: I promised myself to weigh myself every day (that's what it takes for me: not everybody); and that I would faithful... Read more
For the last several weeks I've been deliberately upping my protein intake (thanks SWEETIKINS, for the tip) by making Greek style omelettes most mornings for breakfast: a mixture of Naturegg Omega 3 and Simply Egg Whites with low fat feta chees... Read more
Sing it out loud
You should be proud!
And *blushes* yes, I am.
OK, my body is by no means perfect. It's almost 60, after all. And a decade ago, was some 85 pounds heavier. It's borne two babies. Endured serious illness, and ... Read more
. . . and my goodness, how I cherish such days after a time of "crisis"!
My workout felt good: I'm using the 8 km podrunner downloads on the elliptical trainer since running is not working for my knees, and the music keeps me moving efficie... Read more
There it was, chirruping loudly in the birch out front of my office when I pulled into the parking lot yesterday.
Clearly a web-savvy robin.
And (ahem) perhaps a tiny bit plump: so maybe a member of SparkPeople?
I'm thinking he ... Read more
I hear them. I just haven't seen one yet.
It's a cold morning, with semi-solid rain pouring down from a grey sky: and I've got my light-box on!
The north wind shall blow
And we shall have snow
And what will the robin do then, poor... Read more
That's pretty much been my mood for the past couple of days, and I'm enjoying it.
"Many a green isle needs must be

Or the mariner, worn and wan,
Never thus could voyage on . . . "
That's Percy By... Read more
