I am practicing leadership skills with two roles in my life - president of my Toastmaster club and chair of the quilt show. This is stretching me in ways that I did not expect, but it's good.
One of the things that I am learning is that as ... Read more
I got to walk with my Buddy today!
I decided to remove an edging on the shawl I was making, since it wasn't looking good. All I have to do is weave in the ends and I am done!
For exercise, I walked in the AM and Danced in the PM and just tooled around otherwise. I did check ... Read more
This week I had some semi-drama at work. A group wanted a report, and I needed to create it by querying the database. Unfortunately, my skill at database queries is a little lacking, so I got help from a colleague. He's a really decent guy and l... Read more
Well I am posting today because I did a little yoga. Naturally, I am feeling pretty good. I did record two of my meals yesterday. I don't tend to be very structured in the way I live my life, so recording is always a bit of a challenge.

Remembering a Friend
Yesterday I went to the memorial service of a friend. She had kidney problems her whole life, and it eventually got her.
Ginny was one of those people - not perfect, but sweet and loving most often. I remember her making me feel welcome an... Read more
Philosophy - reasons why I can
Today I want to say something about what I tell myself. There is a philosophy I got from a tape that I got from the Shad Helmstetter organization. It is "I'm always finding reasons why I can get something done, instead of finding reasons why I c... Read more
I have been spending time thinking about when I feel very sensitive (mostly at work), and how to keep from letting it get in my way. I, not unlike many others, want everyone to like me (actually I want everyone to adore me).
This gets in m... Read more
Lots of things done, but not getting to the big picture things.
It's been ages since I posted. This has been a busy weekend in a good way, but I am not getting anywhere with some of my big picture plans. With the weather being lots of cold and some snow, I have been eating too much, especially too many snack... Read more
New Year Cleanout
I've been in my kitchen, throwing out long expired food, ancient spices and cleaning the fridge and cabinets. Lots came out of the cabinets and fridge, yet they are still pretty full. Throwing out is a somewhat challenging task for me, my mother... Read more
How it went...
In some ways it totally worked. Everyone chipped in, and we had more than enough food. I think there was more appreciation for the work that doing this is. I actually did a Turkey Trot 2.5 mile walk in the morning. I felt I had to because I had ... Read more
This year I asked everyone to pitch in and be more helpful by telling the men they had to cook. Typically they do nothing, and my DH's family is largely men. This year, with one pregnant and one recovering surgery, and it happening at my home, I... Read more
Today I Leave for Vacation
I will be seeing family members and having fun. I got really lucky in the family lottery, my siblings are people I love and respect. My parents are deceased, and because their families were small I have only one uncle left and then six half-cous... Read more
Most Days are a Mixed Bag
Today my plans were to take a 1/2 day off work today, so I could use 2 two tickets to see the Shadowbox lunch show. I had the idea that this would not be expensive because I already had the tickets - but between both our lunches and the parking,... Read more
New day, fresh start
I've been struggling with food, and yesterday I hardly walked at all, getting in about 1/3 my steps (just incidental walking). There were doughnuts, cookies, fruit, and cake at work. Although I ate only 1/2 a doughnut, I also had a piece of cake... Read more
I got to walk with my buddy!
I am very happy I got to walk with my buddy today. I am afraid I may have talked her ear off! I am lucky, she's pretty forgiving about that kind of thing. It's been a while since we were able to walk together.
It really is a highlight of th... Read more
