Before

And here she is!

As promised, here is a picture of my new bike, as yet unnamed. It is also a ‘before’ picture to which we will look back and marvel. With God’s help I will stop thinking like a 30 year old and live like a healthy middle-aged woman, watching what I eat and drink, and getting enough sleep.  And exercise!  As long as I can get outside daily I’ll be all right.

It’s those dark winter days where things fall apart.  One day at a time, I think, and each day nearer to the ‘after’ picture.

I tend a perennial garden with a riot of blossoms, ride my bicycle in and out of the watershed, play ocarina and a boom-chick accompaniment when my kids feel like playing contradance music. I love being home, but I love an open road and adventure, too. Classical Conversations' Writers Circle carries my article on some aspect of classical education once a month.

    Yahoo! You go, girl! I am inspired! Even if the color is subdued, she does look like a beauty and very comfortable! Can we still act like we are in our thirties, except for the sleep, food and lack of excersize part?

  2. I think this “before” picture is one of the most attractive I’ve ever seen of you! Just imagine what the “after” could be!!
