I have finally finished my jar for Pennies for Pampering. Actually, making it was easy; deciding how to decorate it was the hard part. The jar is a Bell Jar with fruits and veggies in bedded on the front. I chose that because the underlying p... Read more
Back to doing some short distance walking

Going to the Vet
Today was the dreaded trip to the vet. I dreaded the trip because of the cost (the little stuff they do really adds up) and the trauma to my fur babies. The vet is a really nice, caring guy and the dogs seem to like him. He takes the time to ... Read more

Achieving Balance - Body, Mind and Spirit
Just last week I was sitting in the doctor's office, at the bone clinic, going over how many vitamins and minerals I was getting from my food. I realized that calcium, potassium, vitamin D3, vitamin C and sodium need to be watched closely. I'... Read more

Home Cooking, High Fructose Corn Syrup and Sodium.
I've been reading labels recently and was shocked at how many of the things we normally eat contain high fructose corn syrup! While I'm not giving up ketchup yet, I am going to be much more careful about the products that I buy and use. I've a... Read more
Last night I made chicken spinach soup from the SP recipes. Since I was making it for a main course, I added extra spinach, chicken and potatoes. It was a little bland so I added some spices. I used skim Lactaid milk (lactose intolerant) and ... Read more
