I'm on vacation!

Monday, July 30, 2012      1 comments

I have to keep reminding myself that I'm on vacation because this is a stay-cation. I usually enjoy traveling, but right now I'm too tired to go anywhere. I'm looking forward to nothing but nothingness this week. That's what I've done today -... Read more

Just love Sundays

Sunday, July 29, 2012      1 comments

I've said this before, I just think there's something special about the day called Sunday, even for persons who don't practice their religion on that day. For those who don't have to work, there's something restorative and sane about Sunday. ... Read more

Another eating out victory

Saturday, July 28, 2012      2 comments

Lately, I've had one eating out celebration after another. Today was a surprise graduation party for a friend's son. I had a healthy 300 calorie breakfast this morning. I ate a banana and 2 whole wheat crackers BEFORE I went to the party... Read more

Ice Cream Date

Friday, July 27, 2012      2 comments

A friend offered to take me to a famous local ice cream place that I've never heard of (I'm new to the area). I asked for a rain check. I'd just had a plate of spaghetti for dinner (yummy!). Ice cream would have put me over in calories so I p... Read more

The Wheel

Thursday, July 26, 2012      0 comments

Ya know, I remember wondering, at the very beginning, the purpose of that stupid wheel. I mean, I knew it was a way of tracking how often we logged in, but beyond that, who cares? If didn't take long for me to get hooked on that dumb wheel. A... Read more

Heavy sigh, heavy sigh...

It seems many people don't want to talk about our national inclination to want LOTS of weapons and to use them against other human beings. This is not an attack on the second amendment so please don't send me hate mail. I'm just saying that... Read more

Thank heavens for rain!

Saturday, July 21, 2012      1 comments

We (that is, U. S. Americans) are never happy. We NEED the rain here. We REALLY need the rain. So, it rained and people whined and complained all day. I had lots of shopping to do today and everywhere people were complaining about the rain. ... Read more

Another sad day in America

Friday, July 20, 2012      4 comments

It's almost overwhelming to think of being trapped in a movie theater and having someone open fire. My heart to goes out to the entire state of Colorado. Columbine, now this. And, the nation, as well. We aren't under fire from our government (... Read more

I appreciate plumbers

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      2 comments

That may sound strange because the bills always look like the national debt. However, when you need a plumber, you need a plumber. Not having use of a bathroom is a minor inconvenience when you have more than one, but if you have only one, wel... Read more

Fresh garden veggies!

Monday, July 16, 2012      1 comments

There is simply nothing like veggies fresh out of the garden. I don't garden. Don't want to learn how. I'm a city girl who does not enjoy having her hands in dirt. Plus, at this point, I can't do anything on my knees anyhow. So, I'm thrilled ... Read more

A good day!

Saturday, July 14, 2012      3 comments

Today was one of those days when I was relatively pain-free AND had lots of energy. Got a major project done in the house AND worked-out for 45 minutes (treadmill and weights). These days most days are not like today, so I rejoice. I take ... Read more
