Rocks under the water

August 20, 2014

We’ve had an awesome kayaking season this year; the weather has been great and the temperatures very comfortable. The cooler temperatures are a very good thing since I wear long sleeved SPF-50 shirts and they can be pretty uncomfortable when it gets hotter. We’ve mainly kayaked on the Charles River. Every time we go there, […]

Expensive doesn’t always mean better

Sure, if you shop at high end stores like Nordstrom’s and Tiffany’s, you expect good service, but you don’t have to break the bank to get this kind of service. My new favorite store is Ocean State Job Lot. These are like Dollar Stores, where everything is pretty cheap. I love this store almost as […]

I am inspired by this healthy eating kick. So I went to Trader Joes and bought: - avocado – sea salt – refried beans – organic spinach – organic low fat yogurt. I have a half-baked idea that I will blend all of these items together to make a healthy something. 1. Avocado. Avocado has […]

I am on a constant quest to eat healthy. Alas, it is not easy, given the siren call of Dairy Queen Blizzards and my new favorite indulgence, salted caramel frozen yogurt. But I try. I am excited to receive some pretty interesting food products for review on Amazon. I am having a blast trying them […]

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 […]
