I love early mornings
Saturday, April 06, 2013      3 comments

Especially now that the sun is getting in the sky earlier. I love to be up and doing things early. When I sleep longer I feel like I have wasted the day (this feeling only happens on weekends). It is not even 7am and I have stripped a bed, ans... Read more
Walking and more walking
Wednesday, April 03, 2013      4 comments

I have decided to concentrate more on walking and exercising rather than cut out foods. My caloric intake is very stable but I am not moving down as I would like. Perhaps walking more will not only get that moving but trim me up. DH says I los... Read more
Sunday - Family and Friends

Today started with the usual suspects meeting early morning for knitting and breakfast. We are a varied group of fiber people, pilots, and spouses of pilots. The fiber fanatics do more than just meet for breakfast on Sundays. We yarn crawl; go t... Read more
Sorry for the disappearance

This week has not been the week from hell--quite. I have been through weeks from hell and this one was bad but did not make the cut. Work is becoming more frustrating, coupled with two morning staff classes, one afternoon meeting and a day wher... Read more
Saturday is done and gone

But a day filled with many things! Up at my normal time so I was able to do one load of laundry while watching an episode of "I, Claudius" and knitting before DH woke up. The afghan moves apace. I had hoped that I would have it done by the end... Read more
Spring Break - really?!?
Thursday, March 21, 2013      1 comments

All this week I feel like I have been running as fast as I can and getting no where. That is not completely true. I have finished two large, crappy jobs at work. Not a great deal happening at home because I have had meetings/events Tues-Wed-Thu... Read more
First day of spring break

Which is great! Very few students in the building; those taking our one-week courses and the ones who are studying extra are the only ones. A goodly number of the staff on 4th floor are gone and most of the faculty. This means a very quiet bu... Read more
Saturday was great!

There was a New Fiber Venue yesterday at Vinton, IA called the Shepherds Market. It was on the grounds of the Iowa Braille School. New, lovely woolly things, of course we had to go. Only three of us were able to have the day, 4th friend was w... Read more

My little computer weather station says it is 44 degrees outside. Nice! I have only 12 more minutes before I can walk out the door.... Read more
Early day

With all my angst regarding things on my "desk" after vacation, I requested permission to get to the office early today--6am. I knew that would give me at least one hour before any of the faculty arrived in the building. I got the OK and was a... Read more
Not doing so well
Tuesday, March 12, 2013      3 comments

My weight goes up/down/up/down. I am maintaining but I would rather it would stay put or go down. Partly it is my own fault. I need to do some maintenance on the treadmill but instead I knit. Tonight I will get that done! When I can walk, not... Read more
Cooking a goose
Sunday, March 10, 2013      0 comments

A number of months ago my father expressed a wish for goose. DH and I said that we would be on the look-out for one. We found one--quite expensive, or at least much more than a turkey or duck! Originally we were going to cook it for my mother'... Read more
Things that mess up my life
Saturday, March 09, 2013      1 comments

1. changing the time and 2. taxes. I hate screwing with time and the change moves earlier and earlier in the year to start and later and later to change back. I wish it would stay one way or the other. If you want more daylight in the sum... Read more
Tonight was all about the taxes
Friday, March 08, 2013      0 comments

DH and I spent over an hour gathering our information for taxes tonight. For the first time in years we are going to have our taxes done by a pro to see if we have been missing anything. Having to write a check to the government every year for... Read more
Seriously cold this morning
Thursday, March 07, 2013      2 comments

It was 6 degrees when I left the house to walk to the bus. Fortunately, no wind. I was able to get across the bridge with only minimal fogging of glasses. I do not mind the cold, as long as I am dressed for it. And I do. I lived for 2 years i... Read more
