[UPDATE] It’s now over a month & still going (I hope the eyeglass saga doesn’t last over a month.) #shady

Can’t believe I went to Eyes on You on January 7th, and I still don’t have a pair of decent glasses. When I went to pick them up, I couldn’t believe how bad they looked, lenses being now thicker than the frames. But also, when I first put them on it felt like there was a weird halo around the edges. Kathy made one adjustment … Continue reading [UPDATE] It’s now over a month & still going (I hope the eyeglass saga doesn’t last over a month.) #shady

Got my WO in – am I just a little sick of counting reps right now?

I got something done anyway. Didn’t enjoy it today. If I can talk myself into it I should do yoga tomorrow. I’ve tended to rely on whatever pops up in my feeds, but lately, I’m not in sync with what’s out there, or something… And ya I miss Lisa putting out free workouts. They’re simple. I like timed. So much easier, just to get a … Continue reading Got my WO in – am I just a little sick of counting reps right now?

Portland vs. New York City

So this morning I took a break from designing & took some trash out. I had to vacuum the bag I use to tote my laptop around b/c I’d made the mistake of letting Henry sleep on it last night. Holy cat hair! But then I took a look around. It’s been sunny (which is always cheerier) and warmish the past couple days. There’s birdsong … Continue reading Portland vs. New York City

Today – driving practice, design, art, brownies

Was about 12 (probably at least 14 in my case, since I mostly like to go just a smidge under the speed limit, especially on new and/or windy routes) minutes, going to Live Laugh Love Art, a business in Beaverton. I nearly blew it off, partly because I suspected it’d be another “not worth it” Podunkertunity, but the main reason was I didn’t want to … Continue reading Today – driving practice, design, art, brownies

[updated] I’m getting a lot of practice driving to downtown & back anyway

It was the third trip made to update my eyeglasses. Turns out my $600¹ frames weren’t a very good idea, in 2016, because now the lenses are fatter than the frames. I went $150 cheaper, for lenses at an independent firm. They had a flaw right in the middle of the right. I was going to upgrade immediately but they talked me into giving the … Continue reading [updated] I’m getting a lot of practice driving to downtown & back anyway

Excellent Astanga practice today

Had an extra, third rest day this week – yesterday. That’s ok. Even though I was unwilling. I kinda wanted to do legs, but I also knew I’d been neglecting the yoga lately. So I consulted the magic, online coin toss, lol. Warm-up: 10/30×6=4min jump rope Last practice I’d done two 10/60 Urdhva Ds @ the wall, w/ equal rest after each, before doing the … Continue reading Excellent Astanga practice today

No Excuses According to Holly Workout

Forgot to post this yesterday – I finished & had to get right to other things. Was a great WO, even if I was exhausted and under the weather. (I think the antibiotics are finally conquering the latest bout of dental infection.) No Excuses According to Holly Workout Warm-up @ 1:42. This is a long warm-up but I really needed the feeling of company & encouragement … Continue reading No Excuses According to Holly Workout

This is going to be one of those lost days

Well! Jam night was here last night. I think they stopped around 10:30 or so. Since I was going to be up anyway I had a mini binge of Grace and Frankie. I did a blog post on season five coming out recently & discovered I had most of season four left to watch. Aging when you’re poor is sort of challenging I am also … Continue reading This is going to be one of those lost days
