For Myself

I need to take care of myself for myself, but I know that it impacts my three daughters.
I've worked in professional kitchens since the early 1970's. Food is a major part of my life. Being a woman in a male dominated field was a struggle back when I started. Being an older woman in a physically demanding industry is a struggle too. I enjoy the struggle. I enjoy the long hours, the heat, the noise. The food.
In my early 50's my metabolism started to slow down. Whoops.

The year that I turned 50 I went on my first hike. My husband is a big hiker, and I wanted something else to share with him.

Living in up state NY, we do a lot of Adirondack hikes, but we also hike in the Shawangunks and the White Mountains of NH.

Thanks for checking up on me:) i've been running around like a maniac the last couple weeks. getting ready for fall (what fall there is here in central florida :( ). i miss the cooler weather, the smell of crispy leaves and fireplaces so much this time of year.

btw.... I finally "escaped from Alcatraz" lol. i think i actually swam farther because I kept forgetting what number lap I was on.

have a great day Edlear ::)

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog from Sunday. I went back to school today, actually it was my clinical day, class is tomorrow.

I'm happy to report that my grandma is doing a little better today. They did have to drain fluid from her lungs, but she should be released in the next few days.

Thanks for your concern. emoticon

OH Your hikes sound amazing too I can "see" them because of your profile pic!!! That would be so cool! Ya if we ever go that way that would be so fun! Usually we pick moderate trails for now, but I could see trying the harder ones and doing well too. I just get worried about if I would think it scary, as long as it doesn't feel dangerous then I'm cool with it though.
That's funny you say that about my writing style, I guess I am just writing out what I would SAY to my friends and I've always done that even in emails and I remember one friend telling me that I write just like I talk and she can hear me when she reads my emails because of that! LOL I always thought that was cool! I don't try to do it on purpose but I guess it just naturally happens! Anyway thanks!!!

hola amiga. I made a comment to your comment about harvesting Lakota's energy. One thing I didn't mention was the raking and sweeping blisters ;-(.
Hope the visit with your daughter is good.
Cheers!
