Sunday Night Check-In: Racing, Friends and Sand

I drove up to Dewitt Mi on Friday night to stay with my new friend Michelle who was going to run The Legend with me on Saturday. She lived in an adorable historical home in downtown Dewitt. We didn't have a lot of time to visit before bed but we took a short walk downtown … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Racing, Friends and Sand

Sunday Night Check-In: Running, Blueberries and Open Windows

When I got off work Friday it was 70 degrees. I was so damn happy that I decided to wait until the evening to run. I packed up Ashok and headed to Grand Mere to try out my new trail running map supplied by the retired cross-country coach on our backpack last weekend. It did … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Running, Blueberries and Open Windows

Going longer… Getting stronger….

This weekend had a little bit of everything in it. I spent Friday evening with friends at two different art exhibit openings, Saturday with my spiritual community and Sunday out in nature. I even got a chance to cook some nice meals for myself and get enough sleep. While my house is not spic 'n … Continue reading Going longer… Getting stronger….

Sunday Night Check-In: Pseudo-Spring

A week or so ago we had an almost 60-degree day. The rains came, the snow melted, the rivers rose. Ever since then, it shocks me that its cold outside when I go out. I expect it to be warmer even though my weather app says its still in the 30s. In fact, last week, … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Pseudo-Spring

Sunday Night Check-In: Coffeehouse #4

I spent yesterday working around the house. It was a disaster. A contractor has been remodeling my bathrooms and my closets, and between the snow and construction dust and boots tracking in and out, my house was disgusting. I scrubbed everything and even rearranged the furniture to make my house more livable. It felt so … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Coffeehouse #4

Sunday Night Check-In: Winter Fest

  When I lived up here last time, I don't remember doing much in the wintertime. My ex was a wuss when it came to cold weather, and he thought winter was made for waiting for spring b*tching about the weather. I didn't know any different. As a southerner, you hunker down and drip your … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Winter Fest

Artist’s Way: Paying Attention

I started The Artist's Way course again. I had such great success with it the last time, and spring just feels like a good time to begin again. So, last week I started with Week 1. Week 1 helps me identify the reasons why I don't embrace my creativity. I had great success with my … Continue reading Artist’s Way: Paying Attention

Sunday Night Check-In: Shifting Gears

I've had a rough week. To be honest, I've had a rough time for a few weeks. I'm not sure if it's SAD, or if I'm just sad. I know that I've been trying to reign in my consumption of sugar with a great deal of inconsistency. Every time I eat it, I am awake … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Shifting Gears

Sunday Night Check-In: Trails, Dogs and Travel

I went in to the weekend with one lunch planned on Saturday with my friend Autumn. The rest of the weekend would just have to unfold as it should. I got home Friday night, and I wanted to unplug from the internet and fall into an alternate reality. I'd been wanting to see A Dog's … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Trails, Dogs and Travel

Sunday Night Check-In: Chillin’

It was a long week last week. Everyday started at 6:30 AM ended around 7:30 PM with a meeting. Luckily, there were slow times in between where I could run home and walk my dog, but I had some very long days even for somebody who usually gets up early. I'm waking up now at … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Chillin’
