Ballets & Books

I went to my first ballet! My sweetheart and I saw The Nutcracker, and we were not disappointed. The set, the costumes, and the music: all wonderful.

They had, I believe, silk backgrounds. They were lovely, and depending on the light, we would see different sets. I don’t really know how it works, but it was cool.


After the show, we went out to eat at a nice restaurant. I got the cassoulet, and it was RICH. Definitely worth a to-go box home!

Did you think I forgot about hiking? Nope! We walked around an open shopping area before the ballet, and William Sullivan (OR hiking guru) was selling his books. I picked up this gem and he signed it. Woohoo! I’ve already scoped out some fun ones to do (hopefully) this winter, weather & roads permitting.

Stay tuned!

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
