A Big Step for me . . .

Monday, November 30, 2015      11 comments

I took a big leap today and signed up for a membership to Life Time Fitness. I'm hoping that it's something that I'll utilize to benefit my health goals. I met with my peer-coach from when I was taking my holistic health coach classes last yea... Read more

I'm finally getting a chance to start up again with my strength training. I've been on our Total Gym twice this week. I think it was Wednesday evening and then again tonight before getting ready for work. I'm feeling lots of positive waves co... Read more

I had a question posed in regards to my last blog post about my sourdough bread. It was in regards to the health benefits of sourdough bread. Without going into many details I thought I'd share a blog from the website abou... Read more

Sourdough!! Yummy!

Wednesday, November 18, 2015      9 comments

FINALLY got a couple of good loaves of sourdough bread tonight. I should have baked it a bit longer so it was darker but it sure tastes good. I've gone back and forth with various methods of making sourdough starter. Wow, the flour that I've ... Read more

Sauerkraut is ready

Sunday, November 15, 2015      12 comments

Today I "harvested" my sauerkraut. Hopefully the 3 week culturing timeframe was correct because I didn't want to wait any longer. Okay . . . I couldn't wait to try it! If I want to be totally honest. I've never tried sauerkraut cold befo... Read more

My heart is sad today

My heart goes out to all the victims and their families in Paris today. It is such a sad thing to have happen. Senseless misery for hundreds and hundreds of people. Please keep in mind those who have been hit once again with a terrorist... Read more

I got out today for a bit of a run. It was nice, although pretty windy, so I went for a 2.6 mile run/walk/run - it's been quite awhile since I've been out for an actual run, too! I felt fantastic the entire time, even while running into the br... Read more

Yeah - found a dress today!

I looked and tried on a few dresses for my Mother-of-the-Bride debut this coming May!! I've decided that I really don't want to get super-fancy and will probably go for something fairly simple, as long as it looks good. I did buy one that was ... Read more

Today was a normal workday (night) for me except that I took the weekend off - just for fun, plus we have a really, really good friend who turned 60 today and he was having a big birthday bash at the bar near his house. It was a blast, even tho... Read more

Tomatoes coming out of my . . . canner! Finally!

Thursday, October 29, 2015      7 comments

My tomatoes have been hanging out in the cold, waiting for me to get them canned. I started this evening and have canned 4 quarts and 14 pints with probably 7 more to finish up. I slept late today so I'm not feeling too tired right now, even t... Read more

I got my sauerkraut going yesterday morning before heading off to bed. It's been on my mind so I really felt the need to get it started and get over the initial excitement. I am also trying my hand at making a sourdough starter so today was da... Read more

Update . . . I found myself a 2 gallon crock at an antique store between Omaha and Lincoln. My mom and I had been shopping there recently and I recalled seeing a big selection so I drove out there today and found one for $15.00. It's nothing f... Read more

Sleep is calling me . . . as well as my inner German coming out

Wednesday, October 21, 2015      7 comments

I had to stay at work until 10am today for some training on new equipment that we'll be switching to next month. By the time I got home and got to bed it was pretty late. I only had about 3.5 hours of sleep so I'm heading to bed soon and hopi... Read more
