In my twenties, a girl friend and I memorized jokes labeled one through a hundred. All we'd have to say to each other in a group of new people is something like number #37 and we'd launch into a joke. In addition to jokes we had a set pop psy... Read more

Talked to voice coach this morning and I will be having my first lesson on the 28th of this month. I have mixed feelings about this. The first is that maybe I shouldn't waste money on this at this time in our lives. The second is that it is b... Read more

Yesterday I spent about two hours writing a blog - it was titled "Riding the Waves". It summarized the strange mix of my life recently. Events that are twisted emotions between things that are negative and yet have positive parts. I ranted, I... Read more

Saturday we started out for the museum and then switched to renting canoes and spent about two hours paddling down the local slew. So beautiful and a great work out. The fireworks (our neighborhood went crazy with over $15 Thousand in fire... Read more
Rainbow Day

The joy of a rainy day is when the sun starts to come out, you sometimes get the beauty and hope of a rainbow. I had phlebotomy Thursday (thank you to those who remember this as my bday) and I've started to feel the difference. About 2... Read more

It is in daily living that I get lost, in the projects and the pain, and lose sight of the progress. It is in the the minutes that I confuse, between the numbers and the letters, the significance of the sight of color. It is in... Read more

I forced myself to get out of bed today and start my day at church. Some call this devotion or faith, for me it was simply a motivation for getting out of bed on a day off. On the way bad I ran into my AH! (Amanda) inspiration. She is s... Read more

I remember once when I was growing up making a scratch cake and as I turned in out of the pan it broke in two. I was so upset after all the work I'd put into it - but my mother saved the day. (Got to love how their love is creative to save our... Read more
Using the pain

The whole sermon at church today was about suffering. Such good timing. Now there are several christian concepts that trip me up. One is that story with Martha and Mary - if you're not familiar....one is working hard in the kitchen and th... Read more

Frustration. My joints have been aching to the point of life not feeling happy. For example, today Dan (my husband), Louis (our dog) and I went to a street fair. We had about six hours of slow walking. Half way through again I felt extre... Read more

How many lessons? I am so human. I discover, learn, practice and fall down. So it is the getting back up that is the net process. I took a long slow walk with my husband and dog today. The whole way I wanted to lay down on the groun... Read more
Lesson 2 - Dropping the ball
Friday, May 28, 2010      6 comments

I got myself small juggling balls. I've yet to get past two ball juggling. I lack eye hand coordination big time. I wish I could say practice has improved my attempts - but I plain suck at juggling. I drop balls all the time - and end up run... Read more
Lesson 1 in Juggling
Monday, May 03, 2010      2 comments

The first thing to learn juggling is to just toss one ball from hand to hand in a nice even arc keeping your eyes off your hands directed above your head. So my translation of this principle is to do one task at a time and keep your eye on ... Read more

I've always deep down seeing getting fit, keeping my energy and having a neat home as a triangle that fights with each other. If I work too hard at having the house together and getting in exercise - I feel worn out and then it is a battle ... Read more
