WRD: Week 8:2021 Harnessing Positive Energy

Tweet Sometimes the weeks just kind of melt into each other. That was this week. A repeat, in a way of so many other weeks. Get up. Work at home. Work out. Eat. Watch Netflix. Go to bed. Rinse. Repeat. That said, my attempts at getting out of bed earlier resulted in two morning walks.…

WRD: Week 7:2021 From Snow to Sun

Tweet A Slow Week Not much happening this week as the temperatures slowly (ever so) went from frozen tundra to springtime delight. It was still tricky in the beginning of the week to go out and walk (or run for that matter) because the snow was melting but the ice remained. I ended up indoors…

WRD: Week 6:2021 Down Time

Tweet A Lot of Snow There was unfortunately a lot of indoor time this week due to the snow. Usually we get a dusting of snow, maybe one or two days in the winter, but it’s been years since we had this much. I believe we had somewhere in the neighbourhood of 10 inches of…

2020 – Let’s start Fresh, shall we?

Tweet Happy New Year my friends! We made it! I’m hopeful for a better year all the while knowing that time continues and I’m still the same person. No Goals, No Resolutions I know it’s that time of year again when we all make goals, sometimes small, sometimes big, hairy ones. That won’t be me.…

Time to reset

Tweet I’m back from Chicago and while I had an amazing time it’s time to get back to a “normal” routine.  I’ve already been off a routine since the middle of August and I’m really missing it. I still can’t run until January, but I can do other things; I’m just not doing much… One…

WRD: Week 29 And I’m spent

Tweet This past week was exhausting and everything kind of got adjusted along the way. I’m having a lot of trouble with sleeping (what’s new) and Sunday night was horrendous. I had to go back to work on Monday with about 4 hours of sleep and let me tell you it was FULL ON. No…

WRD: Week 18 – Liberation

Tweet While the US is celebrating Cinco de Mayo, here in the Netherlands we have the Dodenherdenking (Remembrance of the Dead) and Bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day). The Netherlands was under German occupation from 1940 – 1945 and, thanks to the allies – in particular the British, Canadian, Polish and American troops – every year we celebrate…
