Having Fun!

Boston, Beach and Billy




This is my last day at the office until August 7. I'm flying to Boston on the red eye tomorrow night and will arrive Sunday morning at 5:00 a.m. Bean Town time. Bringing my laptop, Kindle and all my camera gear. Yikes!

I wish hubby could go but he has to hold down the fort due to some intense family drama going on now. I'm glad to get away for a while and come up for air. Need to refresh and rejuvinate so I can take on the WORLD when I return.

I am visiting our son Lucas and his lovely wife Liz and our whimsical seven-year-old granddaughter Lily. They live in Hull near the beach so I'll be building sand castles, sight seeing, and hanging out. Nothing like sea air to clear my head.

I'll also be going to see "Billy Elliot" which is playing in Boston! Best show EVER!

Tuesday Tunes: A Horse with No Name

I love the melody of this tune and the mournful acoustic guitar. The rhythm of the guitar is like a horse loping through a desert. The lyrics ignite my imagination -- I'm riding a horse and I feel the heat of the desert on my skin. The horse's flank muscles are moving beneath my legs. I feel myself getting thirsty and I'm reminded of my Cherokee ancestors.

Get Healthy!



My blogger friend Denise has started a fitness blog and it's just what I need for motivation.

I've been on a fitness push since January when I seriously started cutting calories and changing my eating habits. I've lost 15 pounds and am continuing toward my goal. I've started running again this spring and I'm training for my first 5K in decades.

Check out Denise's blog Indigo Horizons and get inspired!

Juicer Update: My Huron jucier is amazing! My first juice was a carrot/apple juice. The next day I tried a carrot/apple/beet juice. I also juiced some oranges for some delicious fresh orange juice. Still haven't tried the green juice but I have all the ingredients (kale, spinach, cucumber).
