    Baylee's Recovery

    Monday night I returned from work to find my 14 year old beagle laying in the floor unable to walk and panting. I carried her to the car and to the local doggie emergency room. She has severe arthritis in both her elbows. Baffling is how she got this bad so fast. Bloodwork...

    My Today

    Did one hour of yoga this morning. Despite my not fully recovered sprained ankle, I was able to have a satisfying workout. For poses that will tax my left ankle, I thought out and did them with variations. Woohoo... I feel good :) physically and mentally.

    Spring Time!

    Warm days, blue skies and balmy air are very welcome after a cold but short winter. And what better way to bring in the new season other than to see a newborn calf. He's still wobbly on his feet, only knee high to me and doesn't like being too far from the milk bar. What's the...

    My Life

    I am generally a happy person, so I find something every day to be happy about.  Today my son playing with the new puppy made me feel happy.  Getting a bunch of typing done made me happy.  The pretty night sky.  There is always something if you look for it!
