I is for insights
Wednesday, May 12, 2021      21 comments

One thing that the isolation of the pandemic year has done for the introverts among us, is to give us extra time to identify what's going on inside our bodies and minds... Drawing conclusions, we have a new set of insights into "what we lea... Read more
H is for waaaaay too many things
Tuesday, May 11, 2021      22 comments

I have had H words bouncing around in my head for three days now. Everything from self-preservation words like "hiding" and "hesitate", to comforting ones like "home" and "haven", to aspiring ones like "honor" and "hope". Truth to ... Read more
Mother's Day

Taking a break from the alphabet for Mother's Day. Son brought the dog over and we walked in the park and showed off tricks and brewed coffee from the beans son brought back from Arkansas vacation. Carl was a good boy. We got some "catch ... Read more
G is for a generous spirit
Saturday, May 08, 2021      20 comments

There are a lot of great g-words: green, grace, gratitude among them. I chose generous in terms of a generous spirit... in other words a giving nature. I think it's particularly important in this recovery phase from pandemic times to give oth... Read more
F is for fresh
Friday, May 07, 2021      24 comments

I had this word pop into my head while doing meal prep, from fresh ingredients. We are so lucky to have an abundance of fresh produce and we're coming into season for so many fresh ingredients. But fresh isn't just about our food. It's al... Read more
E is for equilibrium
Thursday, May 06, 2021      14 comments

When it comes to recovering from the past "pandemic year", what could be more appropriate? "Equilibrium ... 2 a state of balance or adjustment of conflicting desires, interests, etc." What is that adjustment but a risk/benefit assess... Read more

Here's where Prisoner hid most of the time Carl was here. Carl continued to take on the deforested branches until his Daddy came to get him thi... Read more
D is for "do"
Wednesday, May 05, 2021      17 comments

As in go ahead and "do it"! Apologies to Nike. And Godfather's, too. Advertising knows a motivational word when they see it! Do is an action word. I could pick any number of d words... shake the head over "diet" because I don't like it ... Read more

The kitties are snagging the food I set out, outside the fence. Prisoner is still meowing back at me, and I spotted Rubia again when I was driving ... Read more
C is for the cycle of motivation
Tuesday, May 04, 2021      19 comments

The cycle of motivation does not JUST apply to weight management or fitness, it can apply to other things, including hobbies and professions. But I think one of the secrets of learning self-CARE (another great C word) is recognizing how we pers... Read more
Bonus blog: the bark collar and the cat dish
Monday, May 03, 2021      18 comments

This was Carl, staring at the squirrel that's on the daily status. I posted the pair on Facebook, and got a response from my son: "Paws down... Read more
B is for belonging
Monday, May 03, 2021      20 comments

Everybody wants to belong. Others around us have a huge influence on how we behave, because of that desire for belonging. Sometimes if we are a stronger personality, if we "lead", others mimic us and our behavior, in order to belong. Or, if w... Read more

Sunday, May 02, 2021      18 comments

Grandma has been working on a composite command for Carl. It's for when he starts getting excited and barky, especially for when Grandma is fixing human food. I call it, "what does a good boy do?" We've been working on it for a couple of days... Read more
ABC's of renewal
Sunday, May 02, 2021      22 comments

I haven't done a set of alphabet blogs in a while... since before I retired, I know, and maybe a year or two before that, even! But I've been thinking about it lately. And as Carl and I went out early this Marathon Morning to survey a part... Read more
