My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Just another day

It took me three skirts and four different shirts to find an outfit for today. I enjoy being creative in what I am wearing and without relying on the mirror, it becomes a matter of comfort and usually Steve's vote or my memory of a previous outfit that was a success. Our morning conversation can go something like this - Steve, how does this look? okay. just okay? (I change or add something). how does this look - do my colors go okay together? yes, it works. I don't want it to just work - I want it to look fabulous (I change). how does this look? you are beautiful. Okay, ready to go.

I walked over to Arctic Circle, they said Hi Becky & Cricket and I open up my purse and realize that I don't have my wallet. I said, oh sad I don't have my wallet. The manager said, Its Becky day - what you order is free!

During our break between clients, Cricket went to the door and looked longingly outside. It was a beautiful fall day and although we were able to have two nice walks and a yoga session (which during 'plank', she got underneath me) after 9 days of lots of time outside she wanted more.

Becky, you are such an inspiration to me. I am so impressed with your beautiful attitude about life ... right down to your clothing!
P.S. I think I'm falling in love with Cricket!

If Cricket got underneath you in Plank, believe me, she was doing you a favor! In this pose, even when I draw my navel to my spine, my back pops like 'pop beads'! Love the pose just the same!
Thanks Cricket~

Becky said...

Lacey - that is funny. Glad to hear I'm not alone!
Fran - fun to connect and yes, you'd LOVE Cricket. We must get together sometime soon.
Suzy - yes, you know plank! Last night she snuggled up to me in a position and my sweet instructor brought me a block. Most of the time she spends it on her mat but every once in a while she slides over for a snuggle.
