Being productive…

Just beginning…

So, my plans to switch over to a communications degree have hit a bit of a snag. The program on offer is a Bachelor of Professional Arts in communication, however I don't meet the minimum requirements to enter the program.

Enjoying the peace of morning…

How can you be upset with this face waking you up??? Thanks to a puggle who needed to go outside earlier than normal this morning, I was up earlier than my usual wakeup lately. I'm not even mad.

The year that was 2020…

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com As 2020 winds down, I find myself contemplating the year that was. Several adjectives can be used to describe 2020, and not many of them are suitable for this blog.

What I was leaving on the table…finding out how far I can push myself…

I strive to make every day better than the one before. I'd say I accomplished that over the last couple of years.

Honestly, if someone had told me a year ago that I would … Continue reading What I was leaving on the table…finding out how far I can push myself…

Accomplished…

Filling my cup…

For the first time in longer than I care to think about, I got out into the back-country and took some photos.

I ended up doing a swing through some … Continue reading Filling my cup…

Feeling good, and balanced…

The last few days have absolutely flown by. I'm happy to say that after a two-week break to let my ankle injury heal I am back in the gym. I'm not jumping right back into things, however. I'm starting off by extending my treadmill routine a bit every day, reintroducing weights in a few days. … Continue reading Feeling good, and balanced…

Measuring progress in inches, not miles…

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com I have learned a lot over the last few years. I've learned that mental health recovery is possible, but that it takes work.

Back in the groove…

I'm a week in to my new routine, and I'm feeling pretty good. In the last week I've had one morning where things didn't go quite as planned, where I ended up sleeping in until 0930.

Taking pictures…

Today has been another quiet Sunday. We had church this morning, then we headed home. I made pancakes for lunch, and we watched the nail-biter of the Dallas-Calgary hockey game.
