I'm just doing a quick little entry here. The HIGH today was 7 degrees farenheit! I have to walk over a quarter mile in this across iced up pavement from the light rail train to where I had to park my car, in a post-surgical boot on my right f... Read more

What a weekend. Lots of running around to get things done outside my house on Saturday - after spending over an hour shovelling snow. Came home and washed and dried clothes. Sunday I spent 90 minutes outside with a very sturdy old snow shovel... Read more

They offered a 1/2 hour yoga session free for workers on Mondays at lunchtime, in our building. I was delighted. Brought in my yoga mat - and discovered virtually everything the instructor was doing required two working arms. I have nerve dam... Read more

I did something to my lower back moving heavy boxes for an attorney at work yesterday. By late in the afternoon I was coping with bouts of pain flowing into my left leg and making it feel as if my knee was going to give out. Pain in my back w... Read more

I've gotten things in order, modified my exercise, have all the ingredients for my contributions to Thanksgiving Dinner and know how I'll be dividing my plate into much more substantial servings of vegetables and less of the "other" side dishes.... Read more
Looking at the horror of SANDY
Sunday, November 04, 2012      5 comments

My heart is heavy for all those that nasty storm has impacted. My childhood memories are on the New Jersey shore, where I grew up. My first everything is there, on the beaches, the rivers, the sailing, fishing, sunrises and sunsets over the se... Read more

Hot Stuff - and not in a good sense
Tuesday, June 26, 2012      3 comments

It is HOT outside. The temperature is breaking records for the individual dates and now it is probably going to break the record for the number of consecutive days of 100 or over. Not precisely the best environment for exercise and working out... Read more

Summer is time for gardens and flowers and not wearing heavy clothes. Weeding gardens, mowing lawns, hiking, riding my bicycle, swimming, visiting with friends at barbecues, seeing neighbors when everyone gets outside, birds singing in the yard... Read more

Thursday, March 15, 2012      4 comments

A week and a half ago I adopted a dog - a 2 year old spayed female blue heeler mix - from the City Animal Shelter. Her name is Nalla. She was in some other animal shelter before the one where I got her, so she's been on her own for a while. S... Read more
