The 30 minute cure... 23 and 1/2 Hours

Whoops - the video disappeared.  Let me make it reappear!

If I watch this every week it should keep me moving... :-)

The first kickstarter project I've backed.  Take a look and see if it's worth your backing.  Only 23 hours left to raise remaining funds.  Looks like an interesting new cello curriculum/app!

So looking forward to the Kamloops Symphony concert Friday evening featuring David Eggert performing the Elgar Cello Concerto!  (7:30 PM, SASCU Community Centre)

Here it is performed by Jacqueline du Pre in 1967 under the direction of (her husband) Daniel Barenboim.  As amazing as this performance is, there is nothing like being there live...

Walkabout in March

"What exactly IS Walkabout? A Walkabout is an Australian journey for well-being, during which one seeks to clarify his/her life purpose. It is a time of reflection and to reconnect with family and community.

 "Our version of Walkabout is inspired by the Aussies, but we’re walking it out to improve both physical and mental well-being, and to create healthy habits over the course of 28 days. It takes that long to make a habit, doesn’t it? Or so they say!"

Remember my favourite sandals by Orthaheel? The company has changed its name to Vionic, and I have accepted their challenge to the 2014 28 day Walkabout to better health!

I was right - it was hard to keep up daily walking I started last year through the winter. Dark mornings (and afternoons), snow and ice, -19C... So December and January were pretty sporadic. February better, but not every day. We intended to go snowshoeing, but...

We started the walkabout daily walking yesterday. In six inches of snow. My walking was almost two hours of pushing snow in our driveway! Well, okay, some of that time was spent hunting for the key to the snowblower... Hubby was away. In the afternoon with the driveway almost dry he finally got my message. Had no idea our Sunday snow would amount to anything worthy of the snowblower. NOW I know where the key is stashed.

Today I did a proper walk - ~4400 steps in 45 minutes. A few flakes in the 2C. air. God bless the people who shoveled their sidewalks! I'll try to give daily or so updates in comments.

Yes, we started on Monday, but it's not to late to "jump in where you are" as Flylady would say. Join me!

The Lady in Number 6

Alice passed away last month at 110.

Nice to see The Lady in Number 6 short documentary recognized at the Oscars last night!

So much in this....

"Put as much as you can into your heads, because that's something no one can take away from you."  Scripture and music come to mind. Both very sustaining.
