Just Dreamin’ #MysexySaturday #MFRWauthor

rose colored dreamsRun for the Roses – A whirlwind weekend of high-end horse racing and sexy swing parties. Anyone can dream on Derby Day!

Sometimes “good ole’ fashioned sexy” isn’t about hot and heavy, it’s about keeping the dreams and adventures alive with that special someone.

EXCERPT

“What do you dream about at this point in our lives?” Jen asked. “It’s not like we haven’t fulfilled many of our dreams already. After all, I did entice you into discovering me.”

Laughing, Brett nodded in agreement. “That you did. Lucky me.”

“Lucky me.”

“So what do you dream about? What do you want us to dream about?”

“It’s funny.” Jen paused. “When I look at the broad picture—what you and I have, what we do, how we’re living our lives—there’s really nothing I’d add. I love our life. I’m not sure when I was in my twenties I ever even dreamed life could be this good—especially that it would be so full and satisfying in our mid fifties. I don’t know, maybe I thought we’d shrivel up or something. I know I didn’t think about having so much sex in our lives, or sharing it with other partners. I think I believed sex would stop by the time we were forty, if not sooner.”

“Thank God that expectation failed.”

“Yes, but it took both of us to move beyond the scripts we were given as kids. And we’ve done great—but I don’t want to stop dreaming.” She shuddered. “I think if we stop dreaming, it may be over. The inevitable will happen someday, but that day may be further off if we continue chasing dreams, old ones and new ones.”

“That’ll work for me, if it works for you.”

BLURB

Brett and Jen join their horse-trainer friends at the Kentucky Derby for a whirlwind weekend of races and sexy swing parties. Perhaps a Derby win is out of reach – but what are the dreams that matter for them? It doesn’t cost anything to keep on dreaming.

Day One #MFRWAuthor #Stayfit

Anyone who works at staying fit knows the syndrome – life is never static, and keeping healthy turns out to involve an endless series of starting over.

Today, it’s Day One after a fun three days at The Golden Nugget and The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas (well, no end of exercise, between all the dancing and the walking), and also Day One of changing up our timing.

Palo-Duro-Adriana-300x200Summer has arrived. Mimosa sweetness fills the air and the heat is intense. Ten AM bike rides are no longer an option – we’ve got to get up early and ride before breakfast to have a comfortable cruising temperature. It’s only 9:30 as I write this and already 87 degrees – we took our ride (ten minutes, to ease back into the routine) at 7:30, when it was only in the high seventies. This afternoon, instead of walking, we’ll hit the pool around 3 PM. (pic above is Palo Duro Canyon, TX, November, 2012).

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives…

 

Brain Fear? What to eat! #MFRWAuthor

Brain Fear?

Yup, big time. With Alzheimer’s and dementia only one generation away up my family tree, I chase everything that comes across my newsfeeds about caring for my brain.

Here’s the latest, from AARP – six foods that support brain health, and my status:

Legumes, for B-complex vitamins, help protect against brain shrinkage – So-so .We definitely need to add in more, though the humus we enjoy daily at least contributes some

Citrus, for vitamin C antioxidents – Check! An orange a day.

Almonds, for vitamin E, healthy blood vessels – Check! This is my go-to snack. I nearly always have some handy – my only concern is eating too many!

Fish, for Omega 3s – Um, not often enough. Will work on this.

Spinach – flavenoids that slow amyloid plaque build-up — Ooops. I’ve been focusing on romaine for our salads, partly because it keeps so well. It turns up on many other lists of foods that help the brain, but doesn’t necessarily affect amyloid plaque. Will have to add spinach back in. Though in my defense I’ll add that when we eat out, a spinach salad is often my choice – especially the Panera Spinach Power salad.

coffeeCoffee, three cups daily have slowed cognitive decline compared to impaired adults not drinking siginificant coffee. – Check, and hooray! For decades health professionals have succeeded in making me feel somewhat guilty for my coffee addiction, so I’m excited to be justified. Plus, I know single cases neither prove or disprove aggregate research, but my father was a daily coffee drinker and my mother wasn’t, and her decline greatly exceeded his in onset and severity. I’ll drink to the difference!

My score? Excellent on three out of six, marginal on two, and pretty much zero on the spinach front. Got my marching orders – how about you?
