2014 - Fresh Start - REBOOT TIME * CUBA * INSPIRATION * MUSEUMS * BEACH * SPANISH * MALECON * HAVANA * FRIENDS


This New Year Brings a lot of excitement for me.....
I didn't wait until the New Year to start my Fitness/Weight loss journey and am happy to say I am down 8lbs.. have definitely transferred a few pounds to muscle along the way!
We invested in a good treadmill and
I am loving my Nike Fuel Band SE!
I have also discovered the love of making nutritious delicious smoothies.
I have found and love the recipes that FullyRawKristina shares on her YouTube channel..
Smiling and so naturally beautiful, contagious with her happiness....

I am off to Varadero Cuba in a week and am so excited to re-connect with old friends.
It has probably been over 20 years that I have gone anywhere for a two week stretch!
My dear girlfriend and her parents (like my own) are meeting me there for two weeks of Reboot * Unwind * Inspiration * Relaxation * Reconnection
My Girlfriend lived in Cuba for Ten years and I have been 
there many times in the mid 80's to early 90's to see her.
So I will be seeing old Cuban friends as well.
Love Havana, the Malecon

I plan on coming back Rejuvenated and Inspired to create some new art
for this is a whole New Year and I plan on having the best year EVER!!

Cheers and Thanks to All those who 
have purchased my Art and Chalkboards in the past! 



Rubbing Elbows with Nature.. Walking Oakville's Beautiful Trails

I love my new form of Exercise!!
For many years I was a avid Jazzerciser.. I found as I aged,
the moves were a little to much for my poor old knees and it was time to find a new routine.
My daughter told me about this great ap called "Map My Walk"
I WAS HOOKED!
I love so many things about walking my beautiful walking route.
It takes me through many types of terrain. 
I go past community gardens, through thick brush, past a large open field,
a dog park,  a children's play park and a sweet view of the lake.
The best part of my new love is brushing elbows with nature..
I listen to may favorite tunes.. 
So far I have for sure helped baby robins to fly..
( they run in front of me in a frenzy until they jump jump and fly)
Seen dozens of baby bunnies,
Collected beautiful feathers,
Been caught in a downpour,
Smelled cascading flowers in the morning,

Mother Killdeer doing the fake broken wing trick for me...

 I am no longer trapped in a tight room rubbing elbows with other women jumping up and down.. 
I walk right out my front door, get fresh air,
sunshine on my face, sweet smells in the air, 
BUT THE BEST PART BY FAR
is rubbing elbows with Nature!!!!
