Wednesday Wisdom: Priorities

Posted Jan 7 2015 in , , ,

I can’t remember a time I didn’t make lists. Maybe it’s because I’ve always filled up my plate pretty full. I’m also a long-time believer in planning. I’m a planner in my life and in my writing. Pretty much everything. The problem is, I’m overly optimistic. Things usually take about 3 times longer than I anticipate. […]

Tuesday Tunes: A Classic

Posted Jan 6 2015 in , , , , ,

Okay…so I’m going to admit it. I’m a HUGE Barry Manilow Fan! I have most of his albums and when I was younger, he spoke to my heart. Still does, actually. Glee did an episode one season called Guilty Pleasures. Mr. Manilow was featured (along with Copacabana). For me, though, I offer no apologies. I […]

Monday Memories: My Inspiration

Posted Jan 5 2015 in , ,

Everyone has an inspiration. I could name so many over the years, but my first inspiration was my great aunt. Her name was Lillian Bailey. We called her Aunt Daddee (pronounced Day-Dee, though I’m not quite sure if it’s spelled Daddee or Dadee).  She was a writer. She entered tons of jingle contests and won […]

Fitness Friday: Stretching is a Must

Posted Jan 2 2015 in ,

Stretching is critical to protect your body from injury…and not just for working out. During my workout, I include stretches on the following: hamstring, hip flexor, calf, quads, shoulders, biceps, triceps and sometimes forearms and wrists to assist with repetitive motion pains and strains..  Here’s a great web post showing numerous stretches. Good luck and […]

Tuesday Tunes: Shake it Off

Posted Dec 30 2014 in , , , , , ,

It’s coming to the end of the year. This has been a tough one in my family. My mom’s Alzheimer’s disease has taken a huge toll on her this year. The occasional glimpses of recognition and the “I love yous’ are quite rare now and will eventually fade, but those moments…they are golden. They are […]

Monday Memories: In the Eyes of a Child

Posted Dec 29 2014 in , , ,

Out of the mouths of babes. The old cliche contains more truth than we realize. When my brother was about four or five years old, the family took a trip to Carlsbad Caverns. If you’ve never been there, it’s quite amazing. There are more than 119 known caves form when sulfuric acid dissolved surrounding limestone. […]

Fitness Friday: Moderation

Posted Dec 26 2014 in , ,

I’m on a constant state of searching for balance these days. I’m an all-or-nothing person by nature, a perfectionist if you will. Don’t get me wrong, that particular trait has done well for me in my life–but as with any great strength, it’s also a great weakness. So, when I do things, I tend to […]

Thursday – Christmas Day – Angel’s DO Exist!

Posted Dec 25 2014 in , , , , , ,

(Christmas and Techno Thursday don’t seem to go together, so here is a reposting of a blog from December 2012, but one worth sharing. I hope you are as inspired as I am). When I was a kid, my parents used to take me over to my cousin’s house to play. We jumped on the […]

Tuesday Tunes: Silent Night

Posted Dec 23 2014 in , , ,

Some memories don’t dim but only grow brighter with age. For me, one night stands out more clearly than most. Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve services during my childhood were magical. The pastor dimmed the church’s lights and he lit his own candle from the Christ candle. Through the darkness, the simple quiet words of long-loved […]

Monday Memories: Christmas Love

Posted Dec 22 2014 in , , , ,

My mother made Christmas beautiful and special. Not because of the beautiful table she set with her wedding china, or the candles or the presents under the tree. But because each decoration, every gift, every special touch was touched by love. Perhaps my favorite Christmas item is our Christmas stockings. My mom made them sometime soon after […]

Fitness Friday: One Step at a Time

Posted Dec 19 2014 in , , , ,

I tend to be an all-or-nothing personality. I’m either awesome or an utter failure. That trait is great when I’m awesome; not so great when I turn into a turtle and hid in my shell. The last few years I’ve been pretty good at exercising, but when I have a book due or things get […]

Tuesday Tunes: Hallelujah!

Posted Dec 16 2014 in , , , ,

As a teenager, I was in the A Capella Choir at my high school for three years. Each year during Christmas we would have a concert culminating in the Hallelujah Chorus by Handel. There’s nothing I love more. Here is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing it…and for a smile, The Silent Monks, just because I […]
