Dog-tired today after my workout
Wednesday, March 21, 2012      3 comments

I did an hour-long step workout today and I felt pretty good. Then I cleaned for an hour and I felt pretty good. As I sat down this afternoon, I was hit with a wave of sheer exhaustion. I think I'll go to bed now, thank you!... Read more

It's a beautiful day here in SE WI, and I'm full of energy. 60 minutes of interval training and now cleaning and looking forward to a sushi dinner with DH, DS and his GF. What a great day!... Read more

I had a less-than-stellar eating week last week. I still wrote it all down (ugh) and still exercised. I always do ST on Mondays and Fridays, and last week Friday I had a very sore thigh muscle in my right leg. I promised myself that I would s... Read more

Weather here in SE WI is June-like. Crazy warm. Unbelievable. DH and I decided to get some garden clean-up done early and consequently both have a "touch O' the pink" to go with our "touch O' the green today. Neither of us can re... Read more
Spring means...birds crashing into windows?

OK, something is in the air today. For the second time this morning, a bird has crashed into a window at my house. Such a sickening sound...a glassy thud. Two in one day...really?... Read more
I love my tree, but not today

I have a beautiful old maple tree that shades my deck in the summer and offers me lovely cool greenness - part of the reason I bought my house was that tree. It's a Hollywood tree...perfect for swinging and shade and gazing up and pondering... ... Read more
Lovely impromptu dinner with a friend

I have several friends who work at the library with me and after my shift today (ended at 5 PM), my friend Betsy asked me out to dinner. I had a great dinner (a burrito - I ate half and took half home) and lovely conversation with a good frien... Read more

Today I set a record for the first date of the year for garden clean-up. We're having unbelievably warm weather here in SE Wisconsin and I have plans to spend an hour a day cleaning and raking and cutting and hauling.... Day One complete!... Read more

I'm getting used to my new job at the library, and usually work in the afternoon. I like this schedule and it works for me most days. Today, however, I got to work from 8-11 and really enjoyed that as well. I hope that in the future, my supe... Read more

More juggling than I anticipated (no, I'm not at the circus)
Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

I like my new job - it's fast-paced and keeps me on my toes. I shelve books at the local library and it's a job that keeps you engaged, both mentally and physically. It's only ten hours a week, but I have not yet adjusted to coming home at su... Read more

DH and I are going to see The Lorax tonight, and I'm really looking forward to it. Since I began shelving books at the library and The Lorax came out, I've learned that Dr. Suess books get checked out a lot more when there is a Dr. Suess mo... Read more
