Jingle Bells and Brussels Sprouts -- It Must Be Christmas Eve!
Tuesday, December 24, 2013      5 comments

Today started with Step class and I took my jingle bell anklets in. I made a dozen and there were more than enough to go around. The only thing is, I made them to fit around an ankle, but I forgot they had to go OVER A SHOE to get there. A lot o... Read more

Well, I wasn't going to think about the back yard today, but I just wanted to show this view out my back patio door. Unfortunately you probably can't see the squirrel on the feeder (heck, you can't even see the feeder with the photo at this size... Read more

I have this theory. People who collect fat in their upper body end up with big arms. I guess it's not really true, because there are women who are blessed with a shape where their breasts are just naturally large in proportion to the rest ... Read more

I am currently decompressing. I went out and did some last-minute shopping for DH with my son in tow. Driving is crazy. Shopping is crazy. Trying to figure out the store's deals is crazy. Trying to find sizes (we were shopping for clothing)... Read more

Today I have a lot of random thoughts, so bear with me. This post is all over the place. Yesterday I didn't post a blog, but I did write a couple of paragraphs and copy them to a word processor. [On 18/12/13, RHYMESWITHBABY wrote:] ... Read more
Slipping a Bit, With Bells On
Tuesday, December 17, 2013      2 comments

I am slipping a bit on my December #SparkTheSeason goals. It's the EVERY DAY that seems to be getting me. When I make a goal to do something every day, it kills me to see that midnight has sneaked by me and I didn't get it done. It's happen... Read more

I don't have much to say today. I went to Step class and I finally worked a pattern I would never do before because of not being willing to cross the bench. But I think the instructor went through it a bit more slowly this time, and I had again ... Read more
My Freaking Awesome Thrift Store Car Coat

So, I need a new parka and I've been trying to hang on until the Boxing Day sales. Boxing Day is the day after Christmas and it's a big holiday here in Canada. It's also our equivalent of Black Friday when it comes to retail sales. It might... Read more
Is Fart a Bad Word?
Saturday, December 14, 2013      6 comments

I didn't do a blog entry yesterday. Gah! Well, yesterday was weird. We had a storm moving in, and that makes rapid changes in air pressure. I've always been sensitive to air pressure, but this was a little different. Yesterday, about 3:00 i... Read more
Just When I Thought I Was Doing Well

Last night I went to Tai Chi and felt renewed, refreshed, alive. We had a guest teacher, and we spent the time doing foundation exercises instead of practising the set. Foundation exercises are more where my head is at, if that makes s... Read more

Motivation comes and goes. Sometimes it comes on strong, and sometimes it lags. We change from day to day, so it's good to plan ahead for the lag times, and celebrate the strong times when they come. I call it "going with the flow". ... Read more

Some quite significant victories for me today. It all started with my training session, in which ... how can I put this? I no longer think twice about balance issues or getting up and down off a mat on the floor. It doesn't phase me. I mean... Read more
The Garden in Winter
Monday, December 09, 2013      4 comments

I have a new overarching goal -- not quite long-term, but not short term either. Right now I am calling it a seasonal goal for winter. Part of it is to fall in love with winter. But more specifically this winter I want to fall in love ... Read more
Productive Day!

Today was a very productive day for my December #SparkTheSeason goals. I have done some significant knitting on the left front of my sweater. I ironed about a dozen shirts, mostly my husband's, but also a few belonging to my son. (Beca... Read more
