The Last 8 or 10 

I haven’t been sharing a lot of what’s going on in my life lately and I never want to come across as being preachy – like I’m trying to tell you what to do in your life without telling you what I’m doing in mine. This blog is a personal space for me to share…

A 5F Weekend

The 5Fs are: Fellowship, Food, Friends, Family, Fun. This weekend had all  5Fs (and its Columbus Day today so the weekend isn’t even over yet) Friday evenings, I usually spend time reading the Bible, preparing for Bible study at church on Sabbath, and going on YouTube for videos of sermons. I also found some cool…

The Big E

The last few days have been action-packed and I haven’t been keeping you posted on what I’m doing. Here’s what I’ve been up to. I went to a funeral on Thursday Friday was so cold and rainy, I spent the workday indoors and got some good editing done.  On Saturday, we had a Pathfinder event…

Tales From The Weekend

On Saturday, our church was really scanty because a lot of our regular members are still in Texas attending the General Conference session – we’re kind of in summer vacation mode, ergo, time for bright, casual outfits, like my orange dress. I went to an awesome backyard party on Saturday night where I wore another…

Summer Plans

Every summer, I make a list of things I want to do/places to visit/activities to try. My birthday is around Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer. On my list for the period June 21st – Sept 7th this year: Run 100 miles Bike 200 miles (this goal will probably extend to Sept 13,…

Math for everyday 

They say the younger you are, the quicker you’ll solve this complex puzzle, assuming you have mastered and recall your basic math skills. Hint: it’s not the Fibonacci sequence.   

Love and Loss

Last weekend, I watched two movies that I didn’t know would’ve been so related but they both dealt with love and loss in a big way. I went into the movies blind i.e. I had no idea what they were about but I loved them so much that at the end of the second flick,…

Summer Reading Challenge

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…

3 Goals For The Week Ahead

The 5 best things about the weekend past were: Enjoying what I have convinced myself is the last snow of the season         Playing dress-up    Being totally inspired by the violinists in the student orchestra that played at church and then being a bit overwhelmed by their rendition of ‘O Green Isle of The Indies’, which…

Does Having Fun With Friends Count As Cross Training?

This weekend, we had our annual church picnic and this time we went to Holiday Hills in Connecticut. I was tired going into the weekend because of all I did on Friday, and because I had topped off Friday by running 5.5 miles. Sunday was all about having fun, and fitting in as much fun…

Pathfinders = FUN

I am excited to spend the day with my kids… my Pathfinders. They look up to me and they call me Director and they keep me company when I go on trips… yeah, yeah, I know, I am chaperoning them, but it feels like an outing for me too. Our next event is in about…

Bike Tour

Registration for the TD Bank 5 Boro Bike Tour 2014 starts tomorrow, January 14 at midday. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s rewarding. And the event is put on by Bike New York, the group responsible for advocating on behalf of NYC bike riders. They got us more bike paths on city streets and they teach…
