Silver Liningness

Good silver lining Sunday morning!  Let me count the ways...

I did not go for a bike ride this morning. The temperature was in the 20's and 30 is my cutoff, even with the foot jackets. Instead, I got out my yoga mat. It's harder than it looks, really! And much warmer than a bike ride in 20 degrees.

I've been able to keep up with NaBloPoMo, and I've met a few more bloggers.  It seems like I've been blogging forever, and I've met some great people along the way.  Many have come and gone and/or migrated to facebuuk, and it's always nice to meet others who still like to blog. 

On that note, the Portrait-a-Day challenge has been fun, but I'm burning out after a week.  I enjoy doing portraits, but every day?  For a whole month?  That's a lot of eyes-nose-mouth-chin-hair activity.  I think I'll change it up to Portrait-Every-Once-In-a-While month. 
(Eric Balfour from "Skyline".  Not a great movie...)

But my participation in Movember is still going strong.  Haven't shaved my face all month.

And we can't have all fun and games!  I'm enjoying the variety of tutoring activity I'm doing lately.  And the workload is just about right. 

On those coat tails, I got a message this week from the mom of a girl I recently tutored.  She did it!  She got the score she needed on her college entrance exam and signed with her "dream University" last week!  I just love those messages.



  1. Congrats to your student!

    I haven't done yoga since...hmmm...2008, I think.

  2. Maybe yoga should be my next challenge, and then I can slowly slip out of the running world.

    Wait - I may have already slipped out of the running world...I've run ONCE in two weeks. Must have a goal-race to work towards I've decided!

  3. I've had a definite ebb and flow in my blogging activity, but never a desire to quit. There's something about blogging that is so much deeper than what the facebuuk has to offer. And I agree that the friendships made through blogging are some of the best!

    I hope when Movember is over, you'll post before and after shots!

    Congratulations to your tutee! Way to go!

  4. I've thought about doing yoga. Does that count? Nice portrait. I can completely understand why you might get tired of doing them every day, but I like looking :)

  5. Another drawing of a good looking face... ahhh...

    Oh, the yoga and tutoring - good job. :)
