Fibromyalgia and Yoga

Approximately eleven years ago my body seemed to seize up.  I was still mobile but one day just doing the simplest of tasks was painful.  Every muscle hurt, and I hadn’t been to the gym.  It was a little scary.  After just a little thought I remembered that my doctor from years back predicted thatContinue reading “Fibromyalgia and Yoga”

Organic Onions and Hiccups

Last night we watched the movie, “Scorched.”  There was a scene where someone had hiccups.  Being scared cured him. Today, perhaps synchronicity, I got the hiccups just as I was entering the grocery store.  Two store employees were talking.  I came up from behind to ask if they had organic onions.  He turned just asContinue reading “Organic Onions and Hiccups”

The Skinny on Knitting

I’m hoping skinny is a side effect of this past couple of weeks of marathon knitting.  On Friday I sent a cabled red scarf to my daughter for her to wear during the Christmas season.  https://athursdayschild.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/knitting-a-cable-scarf/ Shortly thereafter, I began a green one for her husband. I’ve also recently been counting calories using an IphoneContinue reading “The Skinny on Knitting”

Handyman

I’m thankful for my husband.  I’m thankful for him everyday.  He’s great at fixing things.  That’s a definite plus living in an old house.  This morning I was thrilled to take a shower without the faucet handle falling off.  He fixed that last night.  There seems always something to fix around here. We both loveContinue reading “Handyman”

Thankful to be Snug As a Bug on This Cold Winter Day

Today was our first snow-covered day.  Temperatures are currently in the twenties and dropping into the teens. We’ve been having problems with our wood-burning stove.  It has been smoking.  Today my husband took on the job of chimney sweep and now it’s working fine.  I’m so thankful for that.  We have a toasty house.  ItContinue reading “Thankful to be Snug As a Bug on This Cold Winter Day”

Life-Changing Books

About four years ago I discovered a life-changing book.  It was “Where There is Light” by Paramahansa Yogananda.  I was leaving to pick up my husband from work and hurriedly grabbed a book from the bookcase to read while waiting in the parking lot.  The pure truth of it resonated with me like embracing aContinue reading “Life-Changing Books”

Knitting a Cable Scarf

For the last three days I’ve been consumed with knitting.  It’s going to be a homemade Christmas for the most part.  I’m really on a beginner level in knitting but have wanted to do cable.  I found an easy pattern – http://www.squidoo.com/cable_knit_scarf.  I’m thankful for that.  I at first tried a more complicated one butContinue reading “Knitting a Cable Scarf”

Thankful One Day At a Time

I decided to do a blog several days ago, but thought what is there of great importance to write, like probably so many people.  Thursday’s Child for a title immediately came to me, but as the early bird gets the worm, that title was taken, thus “athursdayschild.”  Thursday’s child, my original choice, has far toContinue reading “Thankful One Day At a Time”
