Snow Anyone?

The town square had just been cleaned and movement starting again when another storm headed in. One to three inches is forecast for today. It started furiously about 3:00 this morning and is still falling and blowing.

Put the teapot on at 5:30 am, retrieved ham bone from the freezer, put on the last of dried beans (if dried bean supply is gone, does that mean it is spring?) and picked up my book. Had no creative zip for exercising.

I have noticed the last week that two other writers use Leslie Sansone's walking DVDs. Both Cindy Dagnan and Debra Vogts mentioned this form of exercise on their blogs. Writers need exercise. Sitting at a desk all day is not healthy, not to mention the drinks and snacks it takes to keep a writer going at the keyboard! Then add winter carb craving to the mix and well writers, especially this one, need all the help they can get to keep moving!

You might find Caryn Mirriam Goldberg's blog interesting at Goldberg is the Kansas Poet Laureate and has lots of writing ideas and projects going. In honor of the 150th birthday of Kansas, Goldberg has a special poetry page at This is excellent!

Like a winter rabbit I am going to creep back to my snow den now.

My third morning of deliberate and concentrated writing. Your observations here are very helpful. I forgot to drink....but did get up and snatched a bunch of too-salty almonds. I've got to be careful. I've got to drink more water. I need to move more.

Hi Bookie! I have started swimming at the local club pool again. Yeah, going out in the ice and snow with bathing suit underneath fleece pants and hooded sweatshirt is the epitome of hilarity.

But I LOVE moving the body. Need so much to lose weight. It's very easy to gain, d-i-f-f-i-c-u-l-t to lose. Especially because I love carbs and butter. Yeah! Susan
