It's become a 'regular date' for my husband and I to go on a hike on Tuesday mornings - it's not super-long or super-difficult, but it's a great way to get out into an area that is closed to the public, stretch our legs and enjoy the peace of th... Read more

Sunday, February 05, 2012      14 comments

This morning we got a somewhat late start so I wanted to stick to a trail that had a little bit of shade since it can get warm when hiking - it wasn't really a hot day, upper 70s at the highest, but hiking or other somewhat strenuous exercise se... Read more

As I blogged yesterday, I started a new volunteer gig as a Nature Escort to take 3rd Graders around the Fullerton Arboretum. Unfortunately, I was not able to get trained on what to do so I felt a little nervous about the job - worse yet, my 'ass... Read more

Thrift Stores - my favorite places!
Friday, January 13, 2012      16 comments

Yes, it's true, I do shop at thrift stores - in fact, much of the furniture in my house was purchased second-hand and a lot of my clothes were once hanging on thrift store racks, too [gasp!]. I've gotten brand-new items in perfect condition from... Read more

Thursday, January 12, 2012      10 comments

While I've been 'generally' healthy for a long time, I don't always get good exercise and good nutrition at the same time and haven't always been consistent. About two months ago, I started working on a 'resilient' routine that would provide sup... Read more
