How to watch the Super Bowl

February 5, 2014

27

So the quintessential American past time is upon us. I am not sure how I feel about the fact that Americans are most associated with sports, but I’ll let that go for now. I don’t like football. There I said it. What is the purpose of giant men (can we say 300 pounds of muscle?) […]

Slow down!

January 29, 2014

12

I am getting better at this mindfulness thing. Between my yoga, meditation and prayer, I am able to slow down sometimes. I still have a ways to go though. Sundays are my day of rest. I like to sleep late and just relax. Although for me, sleeping late means getting up at 6 am instead […]

Snow day!

January 8, 2014

17

Here’s what we woke up to the other day. Plus, it was about 10 degrees Farenheit (-12 Celsius). I feel like a kid again. As much as I loved school, I loved having a snow day so I could stay home and play. We just had a two day winter storm that dumped over a […]

Any New Year’s Resolutions?

January 1, 2014

34

Normally, I view resolutions as things to be broken. Then you feel guilty and all out of sorts. Who needs that? But, in my quest to be more in charge of my destiny, I’ve decided to be more accountable. What better way than to publicly declare my intentions? So here goes, my New Year’s Resolutions. […]

Letting go of all or nothing

December 18, 2013

17

It’s amazing the perspective you gain when you get older. At least that’s one positive thing about getting older! I have found that I have totally changed my view of the world from all or nothing to shades in between. I suppose the this all or nothing was necessary while I was attending a very […]

The power of music

December 11, 2013

49

My biggest regret in life is that I never learned to play a musical instrument. Looking back, I don’t think I would have had the patience to learn one. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really learned to appreciate the good things in life and music is one of them. My first introduction to music was […]

Social media rant

December 4, 2013

38

Do you love social media? Or do you hate it? Right now, I’m leaning more towards the hate side. Hate is a strong word, maybe more like annoyed. Blogging is my exception. I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all around the world. I haven’t traveled abroad much, so it’s especially […]

It’s not about the pie

November 27, 2013

19

Okay, I’ll admit it, I was going to do a funny blog post about baking pies for Thanksgiving. Whenever I attempt to bake something, there’s plenty of things to laugh about. After attending a wonderful interfaith Thanksgiving service over the weekend, I decided instead to write a post about being thankful. After, all isn’t that […]

There is always a way

November 20, 2013

21

I love walking; it’s my favorite form of exercise. You can do it anywhere and with minimal equipment. You can also do it at work and not get too sweaty. I used to love to take a walk in the afternoons, after sitting hunched over my computer all day. It was a great way to […]
