151.7 meh I put my underwear on inside out this morning. I didn’t grab a mask at home, and it took me 3 mask changes and over 2 hours to adapt to the mask I’m wearing for the workday. I paid a bill with the wrong account number. *facep... Read more

A long way to get to 300, but it’s time to pause and celebrate 50 miles: I’m a T-Rex for the next 10 miles. The virtual badge reads! “Wow, 50 miles! ... Read more

150.0 I don’t like it, but I look back to last year and have to give myself credit: 161.8 on 19.2.2020 and 163.6 on 26.2.2020. Look back without staring. We’ll see what the comparison looks like in 2 days. Benji yelped a couple times ... Read more

I am so sorry if I worried you! I used the phrase metaphorically, psychologically, in my friend feed. I didn’t compose it and I forget where I picked up the expression. It’s been a hard week here. While we are starting to thaw out, ot... Read more

Today my work was cancelled, but DH’s was not. They did cancel his outdoor responsibilities, for which I am grateful. We had the second coldest temperature of all time for our locale today. Yesterday I worked remotely, but to be honest, it was... Read more

Today I am thankful for doggie daycare. Evidently Benji knows the word "lunch", so when I mused aloud about what I might eat, he paid attention. I heated some chicken soup, and put a few nibbles from it onto his dog food. When I put his bowl d... Read more
Thankful Thursday

You know how when someone shares their imperfections with you, their insecurities and worries and flaws, how it sometimes draws you closer (if they’re not too needy)? I think that’s what yesterday did for me - for my relationship with myself. ... Read more

150.6 Today was a challenging day. I went to a self care presentation last night, grumbling all the way. Virtual, of course. As soon as the presenter had us close our eyes and take three deep breaths, I could feel my need to slow down. T... Read more

Each year, it seems, I am formally and informally grateful for wool. Absorbent, wicking, and warm, warm, warm! We’re in the deep freeze here, weather-wise, the depths of winter, so out come my brave strong friends. First up, the oatmeal heathe... Read more
It Snowed Again

Before the historic snowfall could melt away, we got another 4 inches of snow on Saturday and 2 more Sunday morning. The hardest part of scooping this snowfall was finding places to stack it. And having to work with the wind - tossing fluffy sno... Read more

148.3, 148.7, 148.2 I still play games with the scale, even though it's attached to my spark people ticker. 148.3? That can't be right. I ate candy last night. 148.7? That seems more reasonable. But it's heavier than I want to be. Let's co... Read more

I surprised myself yesterday by napping for an hour and a half! The delayed onset muscle soreness let me know I had indeed worked out clearing the snow. I felt awake but kinda stiff when I got up. When I took Benji out, I saw that a plow pas... Read more

147.1 Wow. Shoveling snow must burn A LOT of calories! I didn’t track it, because...well, I don’t want to hurt SP’s feelings...the less conventional forms of exercise on the tracker don’t pan out well for me. I cannot eat as many calories as... Read more
Snowed In!

It’s not as bad as areas to our north can get. But we broke our snow total from the storm of 1997 that people still talk about. 14 inches, said DH before he returned to bed. Our yard has about 13, or 33 cm for most of the world. ... Read more
