I have been having really good days for quite a while lately, and I am enjoying it. It is so amazing to come out the other side of depression. Enjoying being alive is not something I thought I was missing but apparently I was. Huh. *link*
My latest crush...
Day 5 of my new lifestyle went very well. I had an excellent time at the gym and did well with my eating today. I was going to say that I saw someone that I would like to be like, but what I really need to do is to be the… Read full post »
Day 3 and still going strong!
Another excellent gym experience here! I'm going to be IN SHAPE and HEALTHY!
Thanks for stopping by!
I have begun the journey to get fit at 50! Yay! Please join me as I go through these trials. The full story is on my blog at this website.
Sally stretched, luxuriating in the feel of the sun on her skin. It had been a long, cold winter, and she was more than ready for spring. In the meantime, this nice tropical resort would have to fill in. There was nothing like being close to the equator in January. Ah,… Read full post »
I have just been cruising on a good stream lately. Lovin' it!
I love feeling as though I have just had the most perfect day of my life. It may be the physical labor I performed creating endorphins. It may be the sunshine and fresh air resetting something in my chemical balance. It could be the sense of accomplishment from completing all of… Read full post »
Things to be thankful for:
3. No one in my family dying this year, though my sister’s cat, Sally, has passed away this week. R.I.P., Sally.
4. I still have my teeth, though they’re a bit sore at… Read full post »
Another epiphinical moment. Is that a word? I think it is. I love working in my yard. It's very 'in the moment' kind of work.
Trust is a biggie. And not trusting yourself to make good decisions can really screw things up.
And have a wonderful day!… Read full post »
I'm taking another step on the road to authentic living. I wish it were as easy as being inauthentic, but, I may end up with the positive benefit of having nothing else to complain about. If that's the case, I'll take it.
The last installment. Finally. I have to say, I am tired of my birthday, and my teeth hurt.
See you soon with a new topic! But not a new cat.
As you may know, Open Salon cavitated yesterday. As a result, I posted at Our Salon.
I was trying to maintain two blogs last summer and it didn't work for me, I find putting the same blog in two places, that share so many of the same members, to be… Read full post »
As of 11:30 p.m. this coming Tuesday, not factoring in whether or not Daylight Savings Time existed in 1962 and whether or not I am actually at the same time as we were then even though I’m in the same… Read full post »
I am in a mood, and I don’t really know what it is. I am tense, a bit frantic feeling. A lot is going to happen this week. I will be turning 50, and we will be marking the first anniversary of my mother’s… Read full post »
Well, it's nail biting time. Four precincts have reported and I am, so far, in last place. With two seats pending and four candidates, that's not looking good.
My town, heck, my whole state, is heavily Republican. The top two right now are the Republican candidates, which suggests a lot of… Read full post »
Miranda paused, poised for flight. A sound had reached her, a shadow had caught the corner of her eye.
"Let go of my eye, you damn fool," she whispered to the shadow. "How am I supposed to see what made that noise if you keep blocking my peripheral?"
"Oh, sorry, but… Read full post »

I don’t know how to start this. The night started with high expectations. I dressed for a date, with myself, yes, but with hopes of expanding the evening. I wished for a nice man to be my seatmate. I was happy to be there.… Read full post »
Not hopeless enough to quit
Not caring enough to fight
Knowing what needs to be done

My horoscope for October 25, 2012, told me to start thinking of a plan to make one of my dreams come true. It said that even a small step would get me started down the track. I took… Read full post »
I have had lots of advice over the years regarding men and relationships. The latest was from an 84-year-old professor of developmental psychology who told me that I should head to the city and have someone help me with my… Read full post »
Today, another little bit of my need for control was satisfied. The surveyor came and planted little pink flags on the corners of my yard. I feel safer now.
They arrived at 8:30 this morning. I was up… Read full post »
