What Is So Rare…

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

Here’s a recipe I made up for a client blog. It’s really quite yummy, and less than 100 calories. The day began with me sleeping in till 6:00 a.m., which may not sound like much, but it’s the latest I’ve slept in weeks and possibly months. I confess that I woke up with a sense […]

Eat Move Sleep

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Things happened this week. First, I got completely swamped with work, which is of course good. Then as a result of that I have stayed up till 10:30 every night. Even so, with meetings and whatnot I still haven’t caught up. So this morning my husband’s alarm went off at 2:30 and he didn’t wake […]

When I was a child, summer was long stretches of time with nothing that needed doing. I’d play with friends, walk down to the beach, laze around the pool with a book… there was absolutely no structure to summer life. One summer in my teens or early twenties I lived in a tent in a […]

Daily Life

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

   So, yeah, I got up and did a little bit of work — totting up numbers for the CPA, adding a few connections at LinkedIn. The company is having a LinkedIn contest. The Art Prof already had more than the goal number of 400, which I got from a case study at the virtual […]

Cure for Fatigue

Friday, June 21st, 2013

The great thing about being tired is that resting up a little cures you. Last night after writing here I had dinner and then went outside and enjoyed a book on the chaise longue amid the flowers. I took a warm bath, and went to sleep at a reasonable time. Today I feel fine. How […]

11 Days

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Over the last eleven days I have had the following time off of work: six hours of sleep a night dinner with the Daily Show each day a haircut breakfast with my dad choir practice That’s it. I’m counting back 11 days, but I actually worked some that weekend, too. I just don’t want to […]

The lilies are blooming in my back yard. We planted some in the front as well, and they didn’t make it. Perhaps they needed more sun. In any case, tha patio is now perfumed with the heady scent of roses and lilies, lavender and Thai basil. And of course dogs. As soon as I have […]

This blurry picture doesn’t do justice to the revolting nature of my burns. They are large purple blisters. One broke during a meeting. I was in a boardroom with two members of a client’s team and six members of a marketing agency’s team, and I felt yukky sticky fluid on my finger. Minutes later I […]

Up and Down

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Yesterday was a very up and down day. I got up on time and got through my morning routine perfectly, started work on time and got all the blogs launched on time. I had a call with a client, and that went well, but quickly got three meetings on the calendar for this week. Turned […]

Flowers and Insults

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

The 4 O’Clocks aren’t yet blooming, but they’re lush and healthy. The nasturtiums are just starting to bloom, as you can see below. I spent some time outside reading today after church. Also cleaned a bit, baked some banana bread (two Evil 6 points per slice and worth it), and worked a bit. #1 daughter […]
