Making progress

Thursday, March 05, 2015      2 comments

I have been participating in an 8 week challenge to lose 5% of my weight. I have done this challenge multiple times over the past few years and each time I learn something and make some progress. I started this one off with a vengeance determi... Read more

Feeling the chill

Thursday, February 19, 2015      5 comments

It is 52/F in central Florida. The sun is shining and the wind is blowing and it feels cold! I know I have no right to say that with what is happening in the rest of the country but it is all relative to what you are used to experiencing. ... Read more

Never should have done that!

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      7 comments

I have no idea what I was thinking but this morning I stepped on the scale. I try so hard NOT to do that except on Saturday morning. I was up a pound from my Saturday weigh-in! Needless to say that was annoying. I am telling myself to block ... Read more

Week 2 - sticking to the list

Monday, January 19, 2015      6 comments

Saturday started the 2nd week of the current 5% challenge and I am still feeling very motivated. Meals are being planned and tracked early in the morning so there is no question about what can be consumed. We are working on cleaning out ... Read more

Sunny Saturday

Saturday, January 17, 2015      5 comments

It was sooooooooo nice to see the sun this morning. We've had several dreary days in central Florida. So wonderful to be out walking and feel the sunshine and a little breeze. January is why we choose to live in Florida! I'm down about ... Read more

Remember Jell-o?

Thursday, January 15, 2015      7 comments

As a general rule Jello does not come to my mind. I was never crazy about it as a kid and I never developed much of a taste for it as an adult. I used to make it when the kids were young and a couple of times we even made it in a baking pan so... Read more

Splurging at Vero

Friday, January 09, 2015      5 comments

This afternoon we are heading over to Vero Beach to have dinner and spend the night. We used to go there often for long weekends and had a favorite motel on the beach. Tonight we will be having dinner at the Ocean Grill - one of our very favor... Read more

On the road again....

Monday, January 05, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday we decided to take a ride and check on the cabin in the mountains. We were happy to find all was well after some really cold weather there and lots of rain! Today we are heading back south and making a couple of stops along the way t... Read more

Waving good-by to 2014

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      2 comments

It seems impossible that the year is fading away and we have a new one charging in quickly. It was a year of joys, frustrations, challenges and surprises but aren't they all? Happy New Year! Read more

Surviving jury duty

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      3 comments

The jury selection process is frustrating, time consuming and inefficient to me. The #1 issue for me is the drive to get there -about 45-60 in good circumstances. Add VERY heavy fog and it becomes 80-90 minutes. Over 300 people are in a room ... Read more

December 13 ?????????

Saturday, December 13, 2014      4 comments

Here we are half way through December and I'm not nearly ready for Christmas to come in less than two weeks. To start with I have jury duty on Monday. I think my part of the county is about as far away as you can get from the courthouse ... Read more

The sun at last

Thursday, November 27, 2014      5 comments

Yesterday we had lots and lots of rain in central Florida which we truly needed. The temperature stayed in the 50's and it was windy and cold. I know, I know, half the country is laughing that we don't know what cold is. I should say cold for... Read more

Some nights are like that....

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      8 comments

I usually go to bed and go right to sleep but every now and then I have one of those nights that I do not sleep well. I went right to sleep but woke up about 3 a.m. and could not get back to sleep. I stayed in bed until about 6 and had a heada... Read more

Cooking day

Thursday, October 16, 2014      4 comments

Yesterday we went to Sam's to stock up as we came home from the cabin to an empty freezer. $200. later and a day of prep and cooking resulted in about a half full freezer. We have pork for about 10 meals, 6 ground beef patties, 2 pkgs. of 3/4 ... Read more

Heading home

Monday, October 13, 2014      5 comments

It is always a little sad when we have to pack up the cabin and head back to Florida. The leaves are awesome colors and are flying off the trees these days. Just enough wind to make them come down. Our little town is in the middle of its year... Read more
