Just Ducky

20140104-165209.jpgI recognized an interesting correlation today.┬áPrior to my rejuvenation of this blog, my last entry was in October. It also occurred to me that I stopped doing my regular ab workout in October. I don’t recall being in a funk, but clearly I went off the wagon in the Fall. Last week my back went out doing a simple exercise, and I fully attribute that to weak abdominal muscles. Similarly, I am experiencing the pain of a flabby photo gallery in my iPhone. All that fat has got to go, or who knows what will happen under the strain of all those extra photos. Like these.20140104-165234.jpgA homeowner near James’ dance class has a great sense of humor. Or a lot of time on their hands. Or both. These photos were taken in September, October and November. All I know is that he or she was much more motivated and disciplined than I was those months. But I’m back on track.20140104-165257.jpg


Mothers of the Year Unite


Today for my birthday we picked up some burgers and picnicked on a dock by a lake. It wasn’t long before we were descended upon by ducklings and their mama. She was both protective and supportive of their efforts to obtain our french fries. She even swiped a fry from one of her little ones. It’s nice to know I’m not the only mom who does that.20130710-185047.jpg
