Walking (and exercise in general) is my biggest stress buster. It goes way back to when my dear grandfather took me by my little hand and we walked and walked. So I have deep connections to the love and peacefulness of those days with my sweet... Read more

Monday, November 23, 2015      9 comments

I Felt Like I Had (legally) Stolen the Groceries

Wednesday, November 18, 2015      12 comments

That's what the cashier and I agreed it felt like as I visited the newly-opened store around the corner (okay, a mile or so away). This is a literal example of one door closing and another opening. I'd recently blogged about the agony of my fa... Read more

Last week, it was 82 degrees in here, and this morning it's 66! I thought that was cold until I took out the garbage just now and saw my breath in the air - 51 degrees. So, returning indoors, 66 feels comfie. (smiling) Yes, Nat, it's relative... Read more

I do well when I eliminate sugar completely (added sugar), but when I do "just a little," all h@#@ breaks loose. A friend volunteered to take the remaining candy to work for the office. I gladly sent it off with a semi-sad goodbye. Of... Read more
