July 16, 2014

For those of you who have read my other blog posts, you know that my loves in life are: Peeps, kayaking, exercise, Mr. Ken and chipmunks. Although, not necessarily in that order. This kayaking season has been awesome; we’ve have perfect weather. We’ve only been kayaking on the local Charles River, but once you’re out […]

It is a gorgeous day! I had a great night’s sleep, did some exhilarating yoga and was off to start my day. I was walking down the street and a tremendous feeling of gratitude came over me. I am grateful for my strong and healthy body, the sunshine, my faith, and my family. As I […]

All it takes is 10 minutes

Okay, I am now convinced that a 10 minute interval is a very good thing. No surprise, some exercise convinced me. I used to think that if I couldn’t exercise for a solid 60 minutes, that it wasn’t worth exercising. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. I love how a quick 10 minute stretch […]

Confessions of a reformed runner

Torn hip cartilage, acute trochanteric bursitis, knee tendonitis, plantar fasciitis. These are just a few of the ailments that I’ve accumulated over the past few years. Flash forward to today and I am totally pain free. What happened? In short, I wasn’t listening to my body. No, I wasn’t running marathons. Heck I wasn’t even […]

No deep thoughts this week, just a photo montage of our favorite summer activity – kayaking. We have been out 8 times already this year. Oh, the sights we’ve seen! Why I love kayaking on the Charles River. 1. The pretty flowers. I’m not sure what these pretty flowering bushes are called, but the flowers […]

More and more people are working from home these days, either because they’re self-employed or companies are trying to cut their real estate costs. Whatever the reason, there are lots of us.

I collect exercise balls and my dear husband collects computers. Here’s the story of his latest acquisition. He volunteered to help, er rather, I volunteered him to help a friend set up his new computer. Since this set up took almost a full day, our friend gave Ken his old laptop as a thank you. […]

What do you collect?

May 28, 2014

I never thought of myself as a collector, that is until I took a look around my house and realized that I am indeed one. Crazy as it sounds, I collect little exercise balls, or rather balls used in barre. This wasn’t intentional; it just happened. For those of you wondering what the heck is […]

I was at my favorite place in Cambridge last weekend, the Microsoft Research and Development Center, also known as the NERD Center; that’s appropriate, isn’t it? This conference was called Product Camp.  And believe it or not, I do have other interests in life besides exercise and Peeps.  Although, those two topics are more fun […]
