When the stupid window in the pool (that I gladly would have done without in the first place) gives way and #improvisions have to be made (is that a word?? It works rather well, regardless), we’ll make #LemonadeFromLemons and enjoy some naked puddle time. Or at least some of us will. #DuchessKatie #CheekyLass #WaitingForSupplies #HotRodIsOnThePartsRun #SwitchingRoles

We moved out of our new home last December for what we thought would be a 5-6 month remodel. Our contractor has been wonderful but for various reasons the project still isn’t finished. As we finish our 8th month of nomad life, our second Airbnb is so small I can’t really use an ironing board. Here’s my solution.  #lemonadefromlemons #neverstopcreating #imnotagoodnomad #slowstitching #luanneseymourdesign #teamwerecreate

So, how's your day going? I planned my @ww points and brought my lunch to work.  Then the glass bowl it was in shattered in the microwave... Never had that happen before. :( It was a good lunch too.  Luckily, @chickfila is close by and saved the day! (Love the diet lemonade!) #ruinedlunch #lemonadefromlemons #chickfila #kindofabummer

The happy, “Yay, we got our money’s worth” post-trail-run-lake-dip selfie. And a capture of the road rash I incurred after turning my ankle in the last mile. 😁👍 It was a great morning!! (The rest of the day was equally wonderful - we dropped the dogs off and went to yet another lake, where my parents and the kids were, and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon and evening. But sometimes I have trouble posting about the things most precious to me, so for now, that’s it.😊) #thebeststuff #notstuff #wilsonlake #noplacelikeks #switchgrassmtbtrail #happyhappyhappy #optoutside #lemonadefromlemons #yaytrailrunning #ilovetrails #ilovewilsonlake #ilovekansas

#tbt to last week, July 4, when I’d gotten up at 4 to run the annual 10k and, about twenty minutes before heading out the door, we found out it had been canceled due to thunderstorms. We had already paid and the kids were already with grandparents, so we were determined to somehow get a $70 run in (if you run, you probably get that, otherwise it might not make much sense.😄), so we loaded up the boys and drove west, out of the clouds and storms, to Wilson Lake. It was GORGEOUS, as always, and we both agreed that we would have paid at least $40 each for that run. 😉 Also, apparently Finn had never seen wind turbines before - he was fascinated! Dog needs to get out more.😄 Pic 1: Happy and smiley on the way there (some more than others😁)
Pic 2: While I billed this as Pinky and The Brain before, it was also a good representation of how Bryce and I felt, respectively. 😂 And I think the dogs were just wondering why we were up so early and Doodles wanted her chair back.
Pic 3: The rain, still dumping around Salina. 
Pic 4&5: “What are those mysterious white giants??”
Pic 6: Sunshine!!! Hallelujah!

Children see things differently. It can be good to not take things too seriously. And it can be bad to be in denial of a problem. The difficulty is judging which one it is.

So in light of my newest situation I decided to start something new. Intermittent Fasting.
Fuck why not.
I've always wanted to try it but with my orwvouia workout schedule I was never really willing to give up food do any period of time. Eating waa a huge comfort for me around my workout times and I just wasn't comfortable with the possibility of not being properly fueled. 
But now.....since I'm.not working out I figured this is the best time to try intermittent fasting. And so far so good. I'm not quite a week in and I like it. My schedule is roughly what the picture shows. I start to eat around noon...but sometimes it can be as late as 2 depending on my schedule and I stop eating between 8pm and 9pm. I drink lots of water during the fast portion. So far I don't see any changes. I think it'll take a couple weeks. I get a bit tired but that's kinda normal and my sleep isn't the greatest...buy that's also due to sleeping in the motorhome so well see. I'll keep ya posted as to how I feel and what changes occur. I'm pretty excited about this and curiuos myself as to how I'll do on it. I don't see why I wouldn't respond well. If my back wasnt injured i wouldnt be doing this. Eveything is an opportunity.....everything.....
Good, or bad. Take those opportunities and make the most of it. If
you've got questions or your own stories of how you do/did on it share away. .

My boss changed my job description such that I believed that I was neither competent nor inclined to do the job at a level the job required and that my boss deserved, so I resigned. I said I would stay until he found a suitable replacement. He found a replacement who could begin Monday, July 8th. My last official day was Friday. I was hoping to have more time to find another job, but that is life. But when one door closes, another one opens. I am confident I will find another job that I love as much. In the meantime, Neil and I decided to realize a dream and follow the Tour de France. I am at the airport now, waiting on our flight to Manchester, England. We will begin our mad adventure there and catch up to the race in a week. We bought one way tickets, so who knows where we will go or how long we will be gone. We have our backpacks and each other. 💗 Wish us luck! #tdf #bennettmadadventure #lemonadefromlemons

My absolute favorite flower is Delphinium. It comes in many colors, my most favorite being "Cobalt Dreams". My plant was spectacular for my family party yesterday, however after going through several rounds of crazy down pouring rain right before the party, three of the stalks broke. Adding in a little bit of my astilbe, two hosta leaves, and a few pieces of Solomon Seal, I made an impromptu table centerpiece for a Fourth of July celebration in an old milk glass. This isn't how I wanted to enjoy my Delphinium, but I'm loving every second of having it gracing my kitchen. #nature #nofilterneeded #summer #flower #flowerlover #flowers #floraldesigner #garden #gardener #perennialflowers #delphinium #cobaltdreams #blue #cobaltblue #lemonadefromlemons #GRR7525 #astilbe #hosta #solomonsseal #july

Road trip to Duluth...not so successful. Crank sensor and Idle control codes on my 2016 F-150 with 26k miles.  But it was a beautiful day, the tow dude was awesome, and I ate all my feelings for supper. We'll try camping a little closer to home tomorrow with the loaner.  #vacationinterrupted #lemonadefromlemons #fordf150 #f150life #f150 @ford

The bike/Buddy Rider thief might have set us back but didn’t hold us down! My new @buddyriderofficial and new @rexspecsk9 arrived to replace the ones that were stolen and the human borrowed her mom’s @electra_bicycle until she can replace the one that was stolen. Watch out Los Angeles...we’re back cycling the city and better than ever. #cantholdusdown #lemonadefromlemons ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This week I was supposed to be camping in the White Mountains, but a distracted driver plowed into my husband’s truck and totaled the vehicle we tow the camper with. We’ll get up there later this summer, but this week we were working instead of camping....a little depressing to say the least! But we did get out locally, and checked out a nearby trail, and even had a pretty good time!. #lemonadefromlemons #happyfourthofjuly #hiking

*memories*  Three years ago, at a science conference in Honolulu (rough, I know), the flight out was canceled. Stuck for the day in a hotel next to the zoo, we had a nice time hanging out with the animals.

This cheesy little number features the ASIAGO MAC AND CHEESE from @argosyeav unfortunately for #pescatarians like @angellicamarie they don't have an option to substitute the chicken and bacon on the cobb salad for a fish option -or to completely remove the protein and discount it to the price of a vegetarian salad 😑 @summersaysso used those ingredients to elevate this already delicious side dish to a complete meal. #lemonadefromlemons @argosyeav add the SUMMER MAC AND CHEESE to the menu it's great (and work on that salad cost, please)!

JUST OWN IT!! That’s what one of my really good friend tells me whenever I complain about something that’s happened to me. Anddd this time I’m definitely gonna take her advice. My first reaction to this hair cut was 😱😱😱 I lost my hair length that I’d been trying to grow for 5+ years. But I’m gonna make some lemonade out of this lemon thrown at me. My curls are already feeling more healthier and more curlier. Short term sacrifice for a long term goal #goals #curlyhair #curlygirlmethod #positivevibes #lookforward #lemonadefromlemons #justownit #embraceyourcurls #byetofrizz

“Welcome to Boston, where the weather is made up and the seasons don’t matter.”
- Unknown
. 📸 @therestlesshobo

❓What is your best “Seize the day” moment?
.

It was a Carpe Diem type of day in Boston! Walking to Cheers for lunch I admired this picturesque bridge in Boston Public Garden absolutely packed with people. I thought about returning at 5 am for the perfect Instagram picture and my roomate said that I could have fun with that 😂. We enjoyed our lunch then started back for our TravelCon 2019 afternoon sessions. 
It started to torrential downpour as we crossed back through the park foolishly trying to find intermittent shelter from the rain amongst the trees. Lemonade from lemons I asked my new friend if she’d mind standing in the rain to capture me on the now empty bridge for a picture! She agreed! Last second I bamboozled a poor unsuspecting group of tourists asking to borrow their umbrella for a second! Taken aback by my unusual request , they agreed and I was off for these quick snaps, enjoying every minute!
Thank-you TravelCon 2019 for inviting us to enjoy Boston’s fun!
(Check out the second pic to see everyone huddled under the bridge to escape the rain).

1st lemonade stand was a success. I had to talk her down from her original asking price of $10/cup. Though I have to say, I admire her ambition. She even hired an assistant to manage the cups. #entrepreneur #lemons #lemonadefromlemons

HONESTY POST #2 because there should be at least one a month😉....we planned this trip a year ago & between being a mom of 3 with one still nursing & working as an ER doctor I was on overload & scared to leave. I woke up at 4am to pack myself & make sure everything was in place for my babies!! I was panicking when they came to get me & I loaded everything, baby was crying I felt so guilty leaving him but I knew it would be ok once I got there. We arrived at the condo with a cart full of stuff that the bellman brought up- that’s when it hit me... where’s my big purple suitcase with all my clothes, swimsuits etc. Yep.... imagine arriving to the beach with nothing(no clothes, not one swimsuit, no shoes) all I had was what I was wearing. Not going to lie I cried 🤪🤣 I am so blessed to have an incredible group of women to support me through thick & thin! Not going to let the overload of life steal my joy. Celebrating my birthday with some of the best women in the world❤️ #honesty #overload #gottagoshopping #sweetsummertime #girlstrip #momingishard #reallife #lemonadefromlemons

Did you start cutting shirts for a quilt and then realize you can’t get it done?  Did someone else do you a “favor” and cut them for you?  No worries!  I can use what you have and make a quilt for you to cherish.

Was just watching a video from Jon Stone, the U.K. leading neurologist on FND, and he was explaining that with 95% of patients that fatigue is a core symptom, often in an incapacitating way.

Then it’s chicken or the egg, as fatigue can then exasperate symptoms and flare up seizures, myoclonic jerking and the rest of the 3 ring circus that is FND.

This is why a regular massage is an essential part of my treatment plan. Once I hit a certain level of fatigue there’s just no way back except a massage. This is me earlier today, stopping to listen to the Rosellas whilst walking home from a new massage therapist I discovered at my yoga studio - only 5 mins walk from home.

Massage returns our bodies to homeostasis and in particular for people with FND, it works on the parasympathetic nervous system and stimulates the vagus nerve. Oh yeah, baby.

I was having them once a week or when I felt super run down... now I’m doing once a fortnight as a maintenance plan - to keep me recharged with my current physio plan of pacing and ever so slightly increasing my weekly activity.

Dr Jon Stone warns about the boom or bust cycle - where you regain energy one day and then go do all the things you haven’t been able to do whilst sick and then bust the next day.

Pacing back into life slowly has actually turned out to be one of the greatest lessons of FND. I’ve always been an all or nothing person, and learning how to live slower and do things in small chunks bit-by-bit is turning out to be a real joy, and something I know is important for the future.

Coming soon: Small-batch, limited edition, exclusive-run, micro-chunk honey. All thanks to the extractor getting imbalanced last week and breaking off chunks of honeycomb. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #whenwillwegetabeekeeperemoji #lemonadefromlemons #cagefreebees #pastureraisedbees #freerangebees #fiveacreshoneyfarm

Some days the rug gets pulled out from under you so you get on your bike and ride. 
15 mile ride through the playground of my neighborhood. Surrounded by beauty makes everything better. ❤💛💚

The bike/Buddy Rider thief might have set us back but didn’t hold us down! My new @buddyriderofficial and new @rexspecsk9 arrived to replace the ones that were stolen and the human borrowed her mom’s @electra_bicycle until she can replace the one that was stolen. Watch out Los Angeles...we’re back cycling the city and better than ever. #cantholdusdown #lemonadefromlemons ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hey y’all!! I’ve taken a break from IG for a while to deal with some life things. Life sure has a way of twisting and making you feel all wonky🙄Well I’m deciding to take all my lemons and make lemonade☺️🍋✨

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So the saying goes. And that's just what I did! A cane I made was so very disappointing so I did what I knew to do. I made some cool veneers using tried and true techniques and one really long tube bead!

It has been raining ceaselessly for several days now, and looks like it’ll keep on pouring for at least the next week and a half! Helloooooo, Springtime! 
One rainy spring day a few years ago, I had some photo shoot fun with several awesome female photographers (including @saralilphoto , who captured this shot) while puddle-jumping... I guess one could say we took the rain and made some rainbows 😆🌧🌈

Thinking about the unfinished paintings in the studio this morning while I sit and wait at the dealership for the car to be repaired for the second time in a week, kerching! These things happen right. Inhale, exhale - Times like this I wish I still lived in NYC -without a car :-) hope you are having a better morning! The bonus is I get to catch up with an online course I’m way behind on - silver lining!
