And yes, the 4AB saga continues. :-D Last night, they came over for repair time to The Beast, because one more bump, and the rear wheel axle would fall off. They brought over some parts & pieces -- flat metal pieces, nuts & bolts, chains, veh... Read more

Switching to a different snack
Friday, August 20, 2010      4 comments

Before I started this weight loss journey, chips & bars were a staple, along with pop. It took me 3 years to move away from pop, and another year to move away from chips. I'm still working on the bars, but it's much improved from 8 years ago. ... Read more
Clothes shopping experiences
Thursday, August 19, 2010      6 comments

Shopping for clothes is on the bottom of my favourite things to do. I hate it. I hate it with a passion. It doesn't matter if it's undergarments, a winter coat, summer sneakers, or office clothing, I hate shopping for clothes for me. Sho... Read more

When I started my low-carb eating plan 8 years ago, I discovered after the first 4 months that I wasn't hooked on ice cream like I was hooked on pastas & breads. I discovered I could actually have 1/2 cup of ice cream, enjoy it, and go looking ... Read more

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      7 comments

There are some things you get in the country that is just too hard to find in the city. One of them is wild raspberries. :-D When I bought the hanging strawberry plant this spring, I knew it would interest me in doing other types of g... Read more
