I’m a Turkey

I set goals each and every day. I find that I go about my day with a purpose if I set goals ahead of time. Some goals are very specific such as studying for certain amount of hours each day while other goals are more broad and general such as staying fit. In general I […]

My Journey in Pictures – Beacon Hill

I haven’t done Wordless Wednesday for awhile so I thought this week would be a good week to do one because I have been itching to travel again. When I do Wordless Wednesday, it’s not technically wordless but more towards a post loaded with pictures 🙂 The heat wave that we had this week is […]

Effortless running

I went out for a quick and relaxing run first thing this morning.  When I first decided that I wanted to run a half marathon race, I joined a running group to train and learn good running form. I learned the ways of Chi Running. My coach told us once that “effortless running is when […]

Monday Eats and Heatwave

It’s a scorcher today. What is going on with the weather? The temperature hit 100+ degrees in Orange County this weekend and today too. Once I got to work, I planned on staying inside until it cooled down when I  to go home. I woke up bright and early this morning very excited for breakfast. […]

Colorful foods

How is hump day Wednesday treating you? Thanks for all the comments on the last post about Halloween at Disneyland. It’s really festive and beautiful right now at Disney. If you have the opportunity to go, I would suggest making time for it.  And if you can’t go, I’ll take more pictures and share them […]

Guess what time is it? It’s Halloween time

This week is my first week back at Disneyland after the summer break. The fiance and I and several friends have Disney annual passes. We love going to Disneyland once a week to have dinner, check out the fireworks,  go on rides and watch shows. Going to Disneyland is stressful when you only have a […]

Semi-homemade Lentils & Squash soup
