Back to basics....

My many remakings are remarkable in their own way. Each, to varying degrees, includes body, mind, and spirit. Each requires being proactive, rather than reactive.

Running always provides the necessary rubric. Running enables me to: regroup; renew; rework; reorganize; remember; and reenergize.

Running is not static; it requires constant movement. So too do I. Running is my restorative.

Having fun at Nostalgia in PVD.  The space is coming a long.  It, like me, is a work in progress.

The Oriole Rummager - mysterious find

I found this intriguing cloth / piece of fabric.  I wonder what it is....

Based on where I found this collectible, I can't help but think that it may be a cloth napkin / finger towel connected with an airline / aviation.  Also, I want to date it in the mid 1900s, but I can't be sure.

I love a good mystery, and wonder where this one will take me.....

Settling into imbalance

I think I read somewhere about imbalance being a good thing, and it resonated with me.  I am living a wonderful imbalance in that I am not balancing my job, family, and individual lives.  Instead, each life gets too much time sometimes.  That imbalance makes me a better person.

This weekend, the imbalance was struck in favor of my individual life, focusing on the beauty of nature.   I needed this time in Vermont to regroup.

The Oriole Rummager - Nostalgia PVD

You never know what you might find at Nostalgia in Providence.   This is a cool find!  It's a vintage hand-knit baby/toddler romper from the mid 1900s.  This also could be used for a dolly.  What's old is new again....  


Adjusted expectations - aging gracefully

So, age changes everything as far as expectations are concerned - for better and worse.  At this year's annual physical examination, I considered myself successful for having remained the same on the scale.  All of my reading reveals challenges to weight management, so I am grateful that I have NOT  gained weight over the past year.  I certainly am working toward weight loss, and being more fit.  However, I will count my blessings and move forward.

The Oriole Rummager

I am having such fun stocking my space with #stuff.  Sorting and organizing is a passion.  Nostalgia in Providence is feeding that passion.  Right-sizing feels so good.
