Wondering how I got so lucky with my job/firm. Took a lot of years to get lucky. I've worked for world-wide firms in the past, think ING.

Vexing, yes, that's what it is. Sometimes it's so difficult to start a sentence with an ing word! You are fortunate to have a job like yours.

Understanding I work for a small, caring firm might help you imagine that universe (grin). I just have to choose an appropriate time for the request and it's got a decent chance. Right now is not the time, though!

Sitting is the new smoking. That's what the article said. Recommended stand-up desks, or at least making sure one stands up and walks around hourly. I wonder if my firm will buy me the $1,000 up-desk?

Resisting the urge to eat a brownie. I made some and put them in the freezer for Alex. Sometimes it makes me crazy to know they're there and other times I really don't care. (Hey, that rhymes.)

We record TV shows, too. Sometimes there are so many of them I just delete them. Don't tell.

Quitting work a little early tonight, because I came in a little early this morning. It will be nice to get home and just relax this evening. I need to catch up on watching a couple shows I've recorded. :D

Putting up two bird feeders in the backyard. We have four in the front yard. They'll come down at the end of May or so. We couldn't have bird feeders where we used to live because the bears would go after them. So would the deer. They would eat right through the plastic and dump the seed. Plus, we had pheasants at the feeder. But then the bears started coming in and it got too dangerous to feed the birds.

Nothing better than cooking together! We all love to do that. I'm watching the birds at the feeders. It's icy and cold today and they're enjoying the sunflower seeds.

Looking at the weather forecast this week--gee, we might have snow! Even though I've been cold, our winter here has been mild. I'd like to see snow flying around a time or two.

Having to go to the grocery store when you're sick is not fun (but essential). Fortunately, the pharmacy is in the grocery store. Yeah, one stop shopping. Then we went to Panera Bread, next door to the grocery store. I had one of their new broth bowls--the one with lentils. Yum! I got $5.00 off the price, so it was worth it. So I'm done with the 5 day z-pack and the bacterial infection is gone, but I still have this stupid cold virus. It just doesn't want to go away. I started using my allergy nasal spray, hoping that will help.

Doing my sparking before I go to sleep. Alex was great, but Tim and I are still sick with this cold/flu thing we caught. I fell asleep this afternoon and now I'm not tired. I didn't mean to take a nap but I sat down in my comfy chair and was out. Alex was so patient with us today!

Wondering what you might be missing, because I'm obviously missing it, too! It was a disappointing superbowl, which is typically the only football game I watch for the season. The commercials weren't even very good this year!

Viewing an occasional football game with my husband is something I can manage. Some of the commercial are good, although the halftime shows are always horrible. I just don't see the appeal. Am I missing something?

Noticing that I really crave carbs when it's colder. I have to watch that. This week the temperature is in the 40's, last week it was in the 50's and 60's. I've had a cold bug with fever and migraine, so I wasn't too hungry. Now that I'm getting better (even if I do sound worse) I'm craving carbs. Fortunately, (or not), most of the things I'm craving, I'm allergic to. Ha!

Letting you believe I'm taking a tae kwon do class has a certain appeal, but no, I'm just a spectator. There are adult classes but they do a lot of jumping--not something my knees can handle. I have noticed that the more I exercise, the better my knees feel, though.

Gratifying picky eaters is so challenging! Stella is also very picky. Most fruits are okay, bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. She'd happily live on peanut butter sandwiches or cheese sandwiches forever, though. Doesn't even like pasta!

Finding the overnights with Alex are going much better than I expected. Alex is an extremely picky eater.I realize he has texture issues, but other than apples, bananas, and carrots, he doesn't like fruits and veggies. The only meat he'll eat is chicken nuggets, hotdogs and bacon, all of which I consider unhealthy. He will eat peanut butter,vanilla yogurt and cheese. I don't have sweets in the house and I finally convinced my husband to stop buying junk food for Alex. He gets tons of that at home. I have the best daughter-in-law on the planet but she loves her sweets and junk food. She maintains that she doesn't eat that stuff anymore, but she's still buying it for Alex. Yikes! I find myself making biscuits and pizza (the vitamix smooths out my homemade tomato sauce so Alex will eat it). It's frustrating for me because I'm working at not eating bread, lol. Alex is almost 7 and my friends who have had picky eaters say to give him another year or two and he be fine.

Enjoying time with grandkids is such a reward! I'm looking forward to the time when Stella can spend the night with me... should be in the next year or two. We did enjoy the playing and my grandson (2 1/2), who doesn't like it when Mommy leaves, actually had a really good time, too!

Asking myself to go up a ladder is easy. Coming back down is definitely more difficult. I've been lucky not to fear heights. Makes some of my friends nervous when I walk right up to the edge to peer into the Grand Canyon. :-D

Yo-yo-ing up and down, here. Today I walked and did my strength training! Yeah! I am terrified of heights. I had to climb a ladder today to help Tim pull wires through for under the counter lighting. I had to wait for him to help me down. I was paralyzed on the ladder. I got better as the day went on, but vertigo is never far away. I envy you the ability to take to the air.

Seeing my granddaughter today! We're going to lunch, then to "Make Meaning," an arts & crafts store where she'll make a project.

Questioning and answering about aerial silks: long, slinky fabric hanging from the ceiling on a sturdy hook. You can loop it around you and do dazzling gymnastic stunts. Here's a link to some photos: www.circusaerials.com/photos.html

Pondering "aerial silks." What is that?

Opening my eyes to new forms of exercise. Enjoyed a "static trapeze" class recently and looking forward to aerial silks on Sunday.

Making Thanksgiving plans with my daughter and her family. We'll probably have a simple brunch, then snack on healthy veggies and fruits in the afternoon.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving. I don't do the whole traditional dinner. I have difficulty eating all that rich and high fat food. I love having lots of veggies. I'm thinking about roasting carrots, parsnips, and onions with a balsamic reduction glaze. I'd love to add brussels sprouts, but my daughter-in-law isn't fond of them and I want to make things everyone enjoys. Of course, my grandson is such a picky eater, I don't include him in that last statement, otherwise we'd all be eating ice cream and candy.

Keeping fit with new and interesting exercise choices is something I would enjoy. Swinging from a trapeze is actually quite fun! I have to call them...

Joining the circus? Nah, just kidding. If taking aerial classes at circus school is something that you would enjoy, then you should do it!

Imagining another trapeze class soon, is what I'm doing. There's not a specific trapeze school here, though I found a circus school which offers aerial classes to include trapeze.

Going? Or coming? I've gone on my trip and returned home! The autumn colors were perfect in Shenandoah National Park! We had five great hikes. When we returned to DC, I took my first ever FLYING TRAPEZE class! It was so fun!!!

Flying off on vacation yet? Things have been busy around here. My husband put wood floor in our bedroom. We're going to paint the bedroom tomorrow. The new mattress gets delivered tomorrow, too. The furniture should arrive next week. Phew! He's going to put wood floor in the master bedroom closet next. I dread clearing all the stuff out of there. Ended up going to Florida for Cousin Jimmy's funeral. He was such a wonderful man and he will be truly missed. Got to visit my parents when we were there. They diagnosed my dad with COPD last year, then decided about a month ago that he had a bronchial infection instead. He's doing so much better now. What a relief!

Doing double the housework is no fun! No vacation there. I didn't know you had a cat. I really miss having pets, especially my cat (she passed away), but my allergies are so much better without pets.

Catching up on my household chores. Although I was away three weeks, I was taking the hounds home every day so they'd have a dog door, and the kitty was there, needing her daily check in for food & litter cleaning. So the house still got all dirty.

being away from home is easier when I'm driving because I don't have to worry about packing too much!
