Scenes of a slow-down

Well, well, well. 🙂 This was a pretty awesome week: lots of sunshine, time to read, fresh fruits and veggies, more time outdoors and plenty of exercise. Here are some snapshots of healthy, happy moments (for which I’m truly grateful!!) Tuesday’s carrot/apple/cucumber/pear juice. I’ve been enjoying healthy snacks and fresh juice all week long 🙂 […]

Just breathe.

When was the last time you sat still for longer than 15 seconds, without being hooked into your appointment calendar, smart phone, iPad, laptop, kindle, paperback book, tv, the sticky web of your own racing thoughts or actual conversation with another human being? I’m betting that it’s probably been a while. We live in a […]

Finally, a day with some free moments!

Today kicked off the first day of a much needed stay-cation. I wish I could tell you that I spent it at the beach, but it was overcast and I had a lot of little things to do. I started the day with more green juice: kale, cucumber, celery, lemon, 1/2 Granny Smith apple and […]

Another busy, beautiful day.

Lately, I’ve been looking for things to be grateful for. Being up and out for a morning run definitely tops the list, followed by the scenery along the way. Since it’s been a while, I eased back I to it, alternating one minute of running with 30 seconds of walking (and an occasional photo pause) […]

Remember the time I tripped and flew over a wall, into the ocean, during a workout? Here’s the wall. The black rock part is where I landed on my feet, before falling back onto my bum in a few inches of water. Here’s another picture from a bit farther back. The water is pretty, no? […]

Lettuce gets a makeover!

Do you know anyone who celebrates their birthday not just on the day but the entire week? Or even the whole month? Hawea’s mom does that, and I think she’s on to something! Cinco de Mayo was yesterday, but I think we can all agree that tacos taste good no matter the day! Tonight’s dinner […]

When’s the last time you got flowers?

Happy Cinco De Mayo!! In lieu of Mexican food and Coronas, I offer you a virtual bouquet. These are scenes from an afternoon walk. It’s been almost 3 weeks since I hurt my foot and I’m itching for exercise again. Charlie was happy to accompany me for a leisurely stroll around the ‘hood. While it’s […]

It pays to play dirty sometimes.

Today started with a breakfast of farm fresh eggs (thanks, Gary!) and a serving of leftover roasted root vegetables: As I was getting ready to leave, I noticed it was raining, which seemed like a good reason to bust out my new hat. That smile only lasted so long .. It was kind of a […]
