I was 'burning the candle at both ends' for a few days. It caught up to me yesterday and I went to bed early. I didn't even get on the computer (no spark, e-mail, anything). After sleeping 12 hours, I got up. Fortunately, today I have off fro... Read more

I went out to eat with a group of friends and did not 'pig out'. I brought 2/3rds of the meal home and skipped dessert completely. I drank water with a little lemon and ate all my salad. I did 'overdo' on the rolls though. They were piping hot a... Read more

I've spent time the past two days raking leaves. It is an enjoyable pastime on a warm autumn day. The pile on my curb lawn is now higher than my knees. However, there are still leaves falling and many more on the trees to still come down. Hopefu... Read more

Today my grandchildren are trick-or-treating. They are dressing as everything from a Chinese war lord to a cat. How I wish they didn't look forward to the junk they'll receive in their bags. How I wish more people would give coins, trinkets or s... Read more

Today was a better day for exercise. I walked and did steps. After the weekend, I decided that was enough. I know if I overdo and get too sore, I'll skip exercising completely. So, I'll build back up into my routine.... Read more
