afternoon hike

I used to get up and go for a walk before I started work. I could usually get in at least a couple miles, three if I was really focused. Around two weeks before the time change, it was just too dark in the morning for me to get motivated to go out. And now,…

New clothes

Today I had a little retail therapy. Mom & I went to Kohl’s and I bought some new pants that were a size smaller than I’ve gotten before. Yay! Also this morning, I went to hit tennis balls and do my serving on a court. I feel like I had a good hard session against…

November is here!

Wherein I attempt NaBloPoMo (national blog posting month) – posting every day in November. October went by without a check-in (sorry), but I’ll wrap up the month now. I’ll start with some stats: I worked at the bookstore 10 days (usually 4 or 4 1/2 hours each time). It’s not a lot, but honestly, I…

the rest of the week

After the disappointment of Wednesday night, the rest of the weekend has been pretty good. On Thursday, out of nowhere, I decided to see a movie. Instead of a variety of Oscar-nominated films I could have chosen, I selected “Winchester” starring Helen Mirren. It’s about Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle company fortune and…

sweaty denim

I have these old worn out jeans that I can’t bring myself to throw out because they’re super comfortable. I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit that the thigh rubbing area is getting thin and in some places has worn through. I have taken to walking in them. My last few walks have taken me further…

weekend away, stolen dough & forgotten keys

How do the weeks go by so fast? Last Tuesday, I went to Cafe Cabaret for the monthly reading. It went great. Wednesday and Thursday were days that have passed where I did nothing of significance. Probably watched some TV. Han & I are watching “The West Wing.” We didn’t watch it when it was…

quiet Wednesday

This morning I went in for my annual physical. Unfortunately, I didn’t know I needed to fast so now I have to go back tomorrow morning to have my blood drawn. Happily, I had lost 3 pounds since I was there in January. Doesn’t seem like much, but I’ll take it. Other good news was…

stormy weekend

The sky to the west has slowly darkened with storm clouds as the afternoon has worn on, so I’m just waiting for more rain. I just heard some thunder so there’s hope! It rained most of the day yesterday. Unlike many San Diegans, I like days of rain, even with the dumb drivers and the…

the rest of the week

One thing I did on Wednesday (that I didn’t want to ruin my parents’ anniversary post with) was that I went to the dietitian. She didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t know. Reduce my calorie intake, watch the fats I eat, increase my fiber and water intake, reduce my red meat intake, and watch…

end of week, end of month

Happy Chinese New Year. It’s the year of the horse. Here’s what’s happened since I last wrote. On Wednesday, I had a vendor dinner for work. We went to George’s at the Cove’s Ocean Terrace. I arrived late, having gotten hung up at work, but it actually worked out great because everyone was ordering by…
