Just a quick blog before work

Monday, March 02, 2015      22 comments

Breathe deep... this is the first full week of work after the Florida trip... which at this point has faded into dream-like memory. The bracing cold of the reality of a Nebraska Winter / transition to Spring has snapped me back to being present... Read more

Adjusting new things into routines

Sunday, March 01, 2015      19 comments

I don't think I'd mentioned it on Spark yet, but I invested in a new tool for the swim portion of my triathlon training: prescription goggles. I got two pair. One of them clear, one smoked lenses. The clear pair was one where you can replace... Read more

We are tough runners, here

Saturday, February 28, 2015      27 comments

The ambient temperature was 7 F, which is the coldest I've ever run in. The wind, however, was not bad, 4 mph from the SSE... so it wasn't bad. Once you're moving, you wa... Read more

Back in the swing of things

Ariel missed me. (Ariel, for those of you who might have missed all the blogs about the naming of things... is my siren-calling treadmill). She told me so as she warmed up last night when I decided I just didn't want to run outdoors in the col... Read more

Post-trip tracking

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      21 comments

A week ago I blogged that I was turning my trip and my eating on the trip over to my Higher Power.

Adventures continue

I'm up in the air again. On my way back to the chillier air, my skin a bit pinker, my soul at peace... and hoping that there are no hitches in the connection, since at this point BOTH bags are checked through. I fished my prescription meds out... Read more

That weekend went fast!

In case it does not show, the magnet says, "There will come a day when I cannot do this. Today is not that day." First, the results of some pampering, which happened on S... Read more

Busy Expo day

Here's "The Wall" at the Gasparilla Distance Classic Expo yesterday. All the runners in all four events, 5K, 8K, 15K, and Half Marathon have their names up on this HUGE p... Read more

These are out of order, but here's YESTERDAY's travel report...

Friday, February 20, 2015      23 comments

After an episode straight out of Seinfeld from the car rental counter... to taking the upgrade and driving a sweet Ford Mustang for more $$$... to finding Marsha's house, to a 6.7 mile walk past orange groves... Read more

Trip report - safe arrival - and it's COLD in Florida

Friday, February 20, 2015      11 comments

Not as cold as other places, mind you. But being around my 34 year old niece who has such fresh eyes to the cold... I ended up here on a chilly morning, watching her ply her craft as a photographer: Read more

Blogging at 15000 feet

Thursday, February 19, 2015      30 comments

Oh, my, goodness! It's only been a few months since I've flown, but in between times they have upgraded the aircraft. I had to try it out. I'm on my tablet in my airplane seat, blogging! Got up really early this morning, before 3 a.m. be... Read more

After a very busy day...

If I have forgotten anything, it will just have to remain forgotten, and I'll live without it. Today I continued cleaning like a fiend, did laundry, and packed. It's cold here, and I will be bringing cooler weather South with me... but a... Read more

The paralysis of tidiness

Tuesday, February 17, 2015      35 comments

Some people are paralyzed by clutter. I tend to be paralyzed by tidiness, too. Yesterday I made significant "Spring Cleaning" kinds of progress. I even cleaned the teakettle (which I love by the way, it was a gift from my daughter in law, and... Read more

My Spark friends make me laugh...

Monday, February 16, 2015      19 comments

About yesterday... yes, I'm sure one of my neighbors would have let me in to warm up, but it really wasn't THAT bad out. I calculated that it was probably close to the day's high (18F), and the sky was partly cloudy. Not too much of a wind, bu... Read more

Pre-trip adventures

Sunday, February 15, 2015      24 comments

Some of you may have this syndrome: clean house before leaving on trip so you come home to a clean house? And of course so your cat-sitter won't see how high the piles of unmade decisions have become. So... today, I set out to clear the s... Read more
