5 Segues

As a Scientist/Mathematics buff/Puzzle enthusiast, I love patterns and series. As a writer, I love expressing that as segues. Today, I’m thinking about 5 things that are connected somehow. Pinterest. I’m late to the party. I’ve had a pretty stagnant Pinterest account for a while now but a few weeks ago, I made some new…

Hello Again

If you’re a regular reader, you’ve met me, and you know a few (or a lot of) things about me. But today, I have a lot of new and special visitors from the Blog Hop, so I’ll (re)introduce myself. And whether this is your 1st or 21st time on my page, I hope you’ll like…

Free To Run

To celebrate Veteran’s Day – being able to live in the land of the free, – I went out for a 2 mile free run this afternoon. No worries about pace, just run.  I like that I got these shots because now I see how my strike changes when I run downhill. On a flat…

Workout Wednesday 

The temperature in NYC was a blistering 70 degrees yesterday. Last year this time, I think we were already ankle deep in a snow so going for a run when warm weather is lingering is a total no brainer. But making time for running  can be its own challenge.    Daylight Saving Time means it’s…

Literary Ladies Summer Reading Challenge

Have you read any good books lately? If you could, what would you recommend to me? This summer, I decided to participate in 3 different reading challenges (Don’t ask me why). The Literary Ladies Summer Reading Challenge was the second of two that I finished. These are the categories and the books I used to complete…

Reading Challenge

I’m participating in a few reading challenges this year but thought I’d also like to start my own.  The Read Wright Sunmer Challenge will run from June 1st to September 5th (just because that’s my birthday and it’s also Labor Day weekend – the unofficial end of summer). The period June 1 to Sept 5…

Life Lately

Turns out I’m a cheap date after all. Last night I got home, I was exhausted but had decided to spend some quality alone time since I’m just coming back from spending time with lots of people and about to go spend time with even more people. I needed to be alone -a solo date…

5 Characteristics Of A Good Beach Read

I’ve been taking swimming classes and am eager to spend many hours this summer somewhere close to a beach or the pool. In between practicing the breaststroke and perfecting my freestyle technique, I’ll probably be covered up in the shade, with a big floppy hat and a tall glass of strawberry lemonade with my nose in a good…

Summer Reading Challenge

Megan announced the details for the Summer Reading Challenge and I’m doing it. It’s a great little challenge that runs from May 1st to August 31st. The categories are: 5 points: Freebie! Read any book that fits the general rules. 10 points: Read a book you have never heard of before. (Just go to a shelf and pick…

Stargazers

The water bottle she had clipped to her belt loop had been banging against the side of her left leg for the past twenty five minutes (yes, she’d checked) but Tammy didn’t dare stop now. She scanned the road ahead with the large flashlight she held in her right hand, and kept up her almost-jogging…

Friday Featured Female

5 Moments I loved this week: I’m the featured female on The Valentine RD today. Me! Love it! Watching the Biggest Loser Finale last night and seeing the bodies I expect after the major transformations. Remember last year’s controversy? Read here and here. I was rooting for Rob and in my book he won with over…
