Positive Thinking?
Thursday, December 05, 2019      4 comments

Today my coach's assignment is to write down three accomplishments. This is hard for me. Although most people who KNOW me see me as a very positive, encouraging person (and I am!), self-encouragement is hard; I dwell on what I'm NOT doing. Howev... Read more

Our border collie Bella escaped last spring, in heat and accompanied by a randy pit bull type of dog. Yes, alarms broke out, and we were forced to getting her spayed earlier than we'd planned. ... Read more

Just came back from a road trip and a special fabric art seminar, where I stretched myself into an area that I'm not really good, especially compared to my peers. I had some humiliation, but it was okay. Stayed in La Veta, Colorado, which is gor... Read more

I've had a bad winter, with lots of trouble coping with asthma exacerbated by cold air. Since it's warming up, though, I've been doing a lot of gardening, some walking every day, and I'm amazed at how fast my ease of motion has come back. I... Read more

Not sure if I'm ready to go public with all the things I procrastinate on, but that four-syllable word is the main cause of my stress. I always feel like I don't measure up to other people. Today I'm going to relieve stress by 10 minutes on the ... Read more
No excuses!
Saturday, February 02, 2019      4 comments

Today I'm supposed to (via Spark coaching) talk myself out of my excuses. This is a great time to practice mindfulness, because most of my excuses don't even register fully into my conscious. My biggest excuse today is simply being tired. I've b... Read more

I've reached a kind of plateau where I just don't care about weight loss, and I'm telling myself that you're supposed to get a little fat on you when you age, and also have a strong desire to return to my Nebraska farm style way of eating. My mo... Read more

Have a very painful mouth sore! After OD-ing on sweet cherries, I developed a raw spot on the roof of my mouth that I exacerbated by continuing to eat. Did you know that even a banana has rough edges? LOL! It felt like it, anyway. Smoothie... Read more

Got in only my yoga this morning, and haven't written in my Journible yet. Didn't get enough sleep so I've been half drowsy all day long. I did do a little more quilting on the Xmas quilt. Starting to get control over the beast. Enjoyed hav... Read more
How interesting.....

That the last time I wrote a blog was last Sunday, after setting a goal of writing 5 times a week. I think it was Ben Zander who said, when you make a mistake, say "How interesting!" and move on. Don't know Ben Zander? You'll profit from li... Read more

This is one of the shrubs I checked yesterday, not yet identified. It's in the mint family and that's all I can figure out. It's not one of the comm... Read more

Today I work in the County Extension garden. My Master Gardener group are the ones in the state that have an exhibition garden, a thing of beauty. It also requires a good deal of work. I've found this group of gardeners to be friendly, hard work... Read more
Taking it easy

I've been too casual about weight loss this summer. You can translate that as "don't care." Consequently, in the last two months I've gained 3 pounds, which doesn't sound like much, but at 72, I have to work twice as hard to lose than I used to ... Read more
