You are sweetie. Glad it's nothing serious. I meant to tell you I'm proud of you walking anything is wonderful. Way to go.

I'm recuperating from personal tax season. Tomorrow I start finishing the late ones.

Thank you, Ma!

And I did it in almost half the time it took me last year! Must mean I'm getting better!

Next is the all night walk for Relay For Life. I will not be running in the Missoula Marathon, I do know my limits.

I am trying to get my grocery list together so Son #1 can take me shopping this morning. My fridge is empty along with the freezer. But I can't think of anything that appeals to me.

Holiday in Madrid: Labor Day & Madrid Day 2nd

I am not working today, and thus, have decided to relax, as I had prepared lunch all wkend and Monday and Tuesday ( I have been on holiday ). The Vet is working as he has alot of 4 legged patients in need.

So, we are going to have chicken breasts filled with Basil Pesto which I marinated last night --- See Ethnic Section if interested.

Got to go prepare lunch, as it is 14.30 hrs. here already.

Have nice day.
Margi.

Feeding my biga with 3/4 cups each durum and white whole wheat flour, 6 ounces of water, 1/2 tsp each of salt and dry yeast. Plan to add about 5 1/2 cups of bread flour, 1 1/2 cups water, and 3/4 tsp each of salt and dry yeast and then bake ~ 4.5 lbs of bread tomorrow or the next day.

I'm doing a crazy thing.....beginning an 8-week Pilates class given by a physiotherapist who has been treating me for a shoulder injury I sustained in January... from falling down 5 concrete stairs in Mexico.

Then I sat all the rest of the winter, nursing my wounds (and pride) getting more and more unfit.

So it's time to turn the tables. Yikes. Even my super exercise-loving DD exclaimed: "but Mom, Pilates is hard! why not just keep up with your yoga?"

I had to quit yoga, cuz couldn't lift my arms....

and now, I'm asking myself: Just how much 'better' can a 64-year old get, anyways? Shouldn't I just let nature take its course and allow this body to get old?

Simple answer...Nope! When you decide to give up and get old, guess what? You get old! And then I get to have you at my place and get your rump in gear again. Heck hath no fury like a Nightshift Rehab Nurse...
