Being Watched

It’s creepy to feel that I am being watched.

It happens almost everyday when I walk.

It happens in a shady lane where I seek respite from the hot sun.

Walking, I feel someone watching.

There is no one in the lane.

Now You See It…Now You Don’t

I have to admit that I have always been a bit envious of people who think up “hacks”.

Not to be confused with computer programmers who “hack” into computer systems.

I am talking about those creative types who solve the nagging, generally insignificant problems of daily living.

I am a sucker for an article with the headline “Ten Hacks to blah, blah, blah”.

It can be hacks for storing tools, organizing Christmas decorations,  creating art with hambones… anything.  I am hooked.

Now, I can proudly claim to have discovered my very own hack! Continue reading “Now You See It…Now You Don’t”

Coach Mabel’s Tip for Today

If you have followed this blog you know that Coach Mabel preaches good nutrition, lots of exercise, mindful living, and quality sleep.

See her exercise video here.  Mabel Does Yoga

When asked, Mabel feels that sleep is an often under valued part of healthy living.

As an example, she cites her parents.  They are up throughout the night changing her diapers and feeding her.  Definitely sleep-deprived!

Like a good coach, Mabel practices what she preaches!

Shh, don’t wake Coach Mabel as she recharges her batteries.  

Mabel’s Mother remains in treatment for her lung and brain cancer.

I remain grateful and humbled by your kind comments, prayers, and support.
