Monday, July 27, 2015      6 comments

I make a green smoothie almost every morning. Today I added some of the almond butter I made the other day. Mega-yummy as it added such a nice addl. flavor. Yesterday, I blogged about being impressed by the fact that the human stomach is ... Read more

Gazelle, Stomach the Size of Our Fist, Earthquakes, Misc.

Sunday, July 26, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday I hit it lucky and found a like-new Gazelle (Tony Little) that the seller just wanted $25 for. What a bargain since they sell for $129 plus tax. I've had one before and enjoyed it. Had to drive a bit of a distance - a 20 minute driv... Read more

I MADE ALMOND BUTTER THIS MORNING (is that steam or smoke - panic)

Saturday, July 25, 2015      7 comments

For a few seconds, I smelled smoke - as though the engine was overheating. But these blenders are supposed to be built like a tank and this is child's play for this model. However, I still felt instant panic and shut it off for a moment. ... Read more

Just Not A Yoga Kind of Gal (Also, Saturn on the 25th)

Friday, July 24, 2015      8 comments

I've tried several different types of Yoga classes in the recent past, and have to admit that I am now trying to push myself to attend more. Even though I understand the benefits, it's just not something I enjoy. Not sure if it's an acquired t... Read more

The Power of Blogging

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      11 comments

There are so many articles on the positive benefits of blogging, as well as journaling this healthy adventure of ours. Despite knowing this, I resist blogging. But when I do, it is powerful for me. For example, I've had my posture in the ... Read more

A Sweet Walk In the Warm Rain Last Night

Monday, July 20, 2015      9 comments

It felt magical to be warm and soggy under my umbrella with the light rain coming down and my heart filled with uber-joy for this much-needed water dousing the earth. Simple pleasures, for sure. Doing great with sugar intake (no cravings),... Read more

It's been a very long and horrible drought condition in SoCal, so I am elated that this is the second day of a rainfall that is not just a drizzle. Hope this is the start of some good rainfall for our area as it's scary to be running out ... Read more

Friday, July 17, 2015      6 comments

I've taken my high-powered binoculars out and had some nice views of both planets. However, there are other planets that I can't find yet that are also out right now. Saturn. A great website is; it provides terrific info... Read more

Correcting My Awful Posture

Thursday, July 16, 2015      9 comments

Too much work time on the computer, combined with overall laziness (I guess), has caused a definite decline in my posture. I know there are things you can buy to remind you to straighten up. ( band type things) I'll just have to do it on my o... Read more

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      13 comments

For the past few weeks, blueberries have been specially priced at $1.99 for 18 oz in a nearby store. I won't even say how many I've eaten (lbs, not berries). I love them so much and they are seasonal. As a result, I've gotten an allergi... Read more

I'm laughing as I sit here typing this at 5:25 a.m. on Tuesday morning. I awoke extra early to partake in the Pluto fly-by forgetting that it would be a token celebration with NASA team via their TV internet site. Because it takes about 9 hour... Read more

...carrot soup. (smiling) In the spirit of experimentation with my Vitamix, I decided to use some of the veggies that were getting a bit old. One was a small bag of baby carrots; I threw them in the blender and added tomatoes, celery, onion a... Read more

Pineapple Sorbet

Sunday, July 12, 2015      9 comments

At least that's what I call it, without adding anything other than some fresh (but slightly overripe) pineapple spears and ice. Turned out creamy and refreshingly delish. Some of you may remember a couple of years ago, when I debated wheth... Read more

Amazing photos of Pluto have begun to arrive and can be seen at Yesterday's new warnings about the danger of Advil and Aleve are scary. I don't take any meds, other than for pneumonia or similar. However, if thes... Read more
