Before I share anything else, I want to say thank you for your comments on my post about The Pretty Girls. Once I hit "Publish" I was thinking that I would get a lot of criticism (though hardly anyone reads this blog!), so I was especially glad that anyone who commented understood what I was saying. :-)
So here are some of the things I found interesting over the past week, and thought you might enjoy.
A fifteen-minute workout that even I can probably do.
I am always saying that I would like to try running a 5K. If I ever decide I mean it, here is some guidance ...
While we're on the topic of exercise, take a look at this blog post - it was one of the favorite things I saw all week. I love the heels as appropriate exercise shoes, and the cigarette break!
How great was it that for a change, Americans did something that made a lot of people happy by subduing the guy on the French train? The Tim and I had a discussion about what they wore when receiving the French Legion of Honor. The Washington Post noticed, too.
A lovely blog post, whether or not you are religious.
I can't wait to knit this - and the pattern is free!
A few years ago, after I got my first cancer diagnosis, I was walking home, lost in my own thoughts. A guy I walked past said, "C' mon, sweetie, give us a smile. It's not like you have cancer or something." I responded, "Actually, I just found out I had cancer, but thank you for your concern." In reality, I hoped he would then jump in front of a bus, but I doubt that happened. This article is about the "need for females to smile."
And finally - weird but interesting. Who ever wondered about this? Certainly not me!
And that's it for today. Hope you found something you enjoyed here. Have a wonderful weekend!
