on the trail in the fall
mornings on the trail in the fall are such a treat. This morning, besides running through the leaves, I had the joy of seeing a crane fly over. They are one of my favorite birds. DH says that is because they are tall and skinny...ha.

my two personal trainers......woof, woof!
Two days ago I was starting my day a bit slower. When I don't have to go into work I enjoy sitting in the window seat, bird watching, morning prayers and thoughts.
My two personal trainers have different ideas or maybe just one main idea. ... Read more
running and low carbing and loosing
I've been so busy that Spark, at least the blogging part of it, has taken a back burner. Busy as in camping, biking, plenty of work, but plenty of play as well.
So this makes about 3 weeks of low carb eating. I'm going to call it more like ... Read more
Low carb flu???
Started with a stomach bug last night, at least that is what I thought it was. Today feeling really rather yucky. I did drink some broth and am having plenty of fluids, etc.
Have read about the low-carb flu thing. Maybe it is, maybe not. D... Read more
sept 21, back to running, started New Atkins
It has been hard to get back on the path. Amazing how quickly the miles I built up diminish. Yesterday I did 2.4 and today just a little over a mile............but that is because I have other exercise plans for the day. My injuries are all gone... Read more
tripped by dogs.............
Headed out to do first real run in a couple of weeks and all went well until almost home, passed another walker with dogs and mine decided to wrap me up in the leashes. I hopped and stumbled until I almost got off the pavement, so most of my lan... Read more
Up early, the dogs were barking at some nefarious being persistently enough to be let out of the house. Dogs make the best alarms. Onto the greenway in search of more grapes and I was well rewarded with another large bag full. Now to wash and fr... Read more
on the lake
Three nights and three days later, here camping up in Virginia. This has been a good tonic. Yes, I'm still going to get a check up with my doc, but I'm pretty sure some of what has been going on is exhaustion from going without stopping. The fir... Read more
questions about arthritis
so, this has been going on for about a month......I have 4 swollen joints in my hands, 3 on the right and one on the left. I'm fairly achy all over. I'm just plain tired. I can still do whatever I need to by simply pushing myself but if given th... Read more

Long bike ride down the new House Creek Trail to the Art Museum, Meredith college and circling back around to home. What a gorgeous new stretch to bike/hike.
Saw the funniest thing...............a beaver running down the athletic field at M... Read more
anger vs love
This is more for me than for anyone else. I saw this on another blog..........and I'm sorry that I didn't note the spark person that wrote it. Lovely and true. Thanks Spark person. You have made my day.
Anger is the root cause of "Yet Anoth... Read more
day of rest
Incredibly busy day at work yesterday and finally left with much undone. For me that adds up to needing to go back in today and do stuff. Went to Relish last night for dinner. Wonderful place always featuring fresh, local produce.
Been very... Read more
really good day
So, yesterday I biked part of the new greenway trail and then got out again with my bag, stick, sheet, and a weighted rope to gather all the high grapes I could see. Came back with another gallon and me soaking wet from the rain soaked grapevine... Read more
no one shot here.
so I'm reading my spark friends's blogs and see where one of them has a son who was shot........military. He is alive, and should recover. Not so for 3 of his friends.
That was a shock and a gasping breath read.
It makes my own life s... Read more
