On the fly
I got back from Switzerland over a week ago and now am packing for Florida. What a contrast! In the middle of all the travel, I managed to get a UTI and a nasty cold. The UTI is gone, the cold is not but I'm feeling better and got more meds this... Read more
I'm off to the Swiss Alps for a 4-day retreat tomorrow. It will be a 7-hour train ride. I look forward to it - time to relax, read, listen to music and some sermon tapes, enjoy the scenery. Good fellowship, times of worship, food and fun await m... Read more
A goal by any other name...
I posted September goals but with two big challenges and various sub-challenges going on and multiple ways to track, report and - of course - achieve them, I'm not going to make a separate list for October. My Is that OK with everyone? Good! I'm... Read more
Cruise Goals for BLC 23
Posting again to add my BLC Cruise Goals: Where do I see myself in 12 weeks?
I would like to be 8 pounds lighter. 12 would be nice but 8 is probably more realistic because of travel plans for October and November, and because of the planta... Read more
Fly-by Post and BLC 23
Gearing up for my first BLC as a member of the Azure Destinations team, and feeling a mix of trepidation and excitement. I'm sticking with my September goals but adding the 3-post-a-week requirement to the list.
Now, I'm on my way to bed a... Read more
I don't know what to think...
...so I'm not going to think about it too much. Pray some instead.
I just got a call from the director of the Bible school where I taught some 15 years ago asking me if I could imagine coming back to teach in the spring 2014 semester. I won... Read more
I love Germany
So, this morning I left my groovy, neoprene, imported-from-the-USA, BUILT lunch bag on the train. Funny, because I usually have so much to carry and I remember to gather all my things before I get off. But today, I only had my shoulder bag and t... Read more
One year ago today...(long!)
A year ago today, early on a Friday morning, my father died one month after suffering a debilitating stroke. Although his speech was severely impaired, and he had difficulty swallowing and walking without assistance, we had hopes that he would r... Read more
Tomorrow will be a much-needed free day after a strenuous week at work, and dealings with the lawyer, bank and real estate people who are back in Florida working to get my parents' condo sold.
I've wavered on some of my September goals but... Read more
A pretty good week!
Here's an update on my progress toward the fitness goals I set for September.
1. I tracked food and exercise every day except yesterday (Saturday) but I think I was within my ranges nonetheless, and posted on the 5% challenge thread as we... Read more
Translation: Keep your head up!
I've had this postcard on my wall for several years. Time to take the advice - again!
I wanted to measure today but forgot and ... Read more
Late Summer Check-In
Preferring to call it that instead of "early fall." Or does "early fall" sound more optimistic? with the "early" and all?
I haven't posted in over a month, I see. I have been working a LOT since I got back from the States at the end of May ... Read more
I continue to have a VERY busy schedule at the language school and not much time for anything else, it seems, but the three D's - dinner, dishes and duds. I've spending too much time on the internet, though, now that I'm able to watch videos on ... Read more
If you're trying to keep track, I've been back and forth to the States since my last blog. While in Florida, I was able to get the condo pretty much emptied. That was physically and emotionally very difficult but I had help from some wonderful ... Read more
