Be Well

Answered Medical Mystery #2 question


I went on a long bike trip.

I biked with my whole family. My 1 year old sister and my 4 year old sister went on a trailer. My Dad rode his bike that was atached to the trailer that my two young sisters were in. My mom and my 6 year sister biked on a two seater bike. Me and my 9 year old brother just biked along. My grandma biked with us. But since we biked so far our grandma had to turn back. We biked to all of the DIA Inside Out Canton paintings. We toke a picture of ourselves at every painting. Also my two younger sisters fell asleep on the trailer that was hooked to my dad's bike! We also got an icecream stop. All together we had a great time biking as a family. I Love the Libary!!! And if I won a prize I would love the libary even more!!!

Read "Ask Me No Questions" by Ann Schlee

Cholera + bad conditions in "respectable" children's houses = innumerable deaths.
I would be interested to read Dickens's essays on whether or not the conditions of Drouet's children's homes caused cholera in the children he was supposed to be taking care of.


I took a long wlak with my dad this morinig.

Read Unwind

Unwind by Neal Shusterman — it's a little twisted to count this as Be Well, but in this story, Connor, Risa and Lev are all scheduled to be unwound - harvested for parts. Sounds gruesome, but the author poses some interesting questions about life and ethics.

A sequel is coming soon, Unwholly.

Danced like Jane Austen

The heroines in Jane Austen dance in dignified figures, following the rules of polite society. This wasn't quite like that, but I did have the opportunity to participate in some Traditional Folk Dancing. Besides getting quite a workout, I had a great time dancing with good friends.

Afterward, I found some related reading materials:

Dancing in the streets: a history of collective joy by Barbara Ehrenreich — I slogged through this, but really enjoyed this look at the place of dancing within community rituals. The author connects community dance to depression, revolution, politics, religion, and it's all fascinating, if a bit dry at times.

walked with the dogs in the misting rain and admired the garden

It finally, finally rained! I was so happy to see it that I walked around in the mist without an umbrella.

I go on long bike rides with my dad!!!

Going on long bike rides with my dad is kinda peaceful while being surrounded by nature. I like getting fresh makes me feel like I can do anything and no one can bother me. Like I have lots of strength and nothing can stop me. Like i'm flying through the air... :)

swimming, running, stretching, martial arts

I work out at the summit with my dad!!!

My dad and I go to the fitness center at the summit sometimes and we work out together. I usually run or jog or walk and do other little exercises. I like spending time with my dad and I know i'm helping my body by moving around once in a while. :)

Started to exercise in the morning

I decided to exercise in the morning, just to get toned and afterwards, I feel awake! No more coffee for me!

I biked for 10 miles.

Went to Church for the first time in 2 years
