    One of the things I did to change things up this September was sign up for a local jazzercise class. It takes me about 15 minutes to get there from the house, and the group is super nice & small (10 ladies). Anyway this week we started 3 new routines w/weights above our heads & to the side; and I th... Read more

    We are still unpacking boxes at the farm. Our home office-library in our Sacto home was huge (over 500 sq.ft.), and the home office & library space here on the farm is tiny. (Right now my library table is still outside on the front porch covered in tarps.) We purged a lot of office/book stuff in ... Read more

    1) A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now... Read more

    My sister called and said she was going to stop by yesterday so I jumped up and started cleaning my apartment! An hour or so later, she called back and said something came up and she wouldn't be able to make it after all. But, by then, I was on a roll! I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, and it feels...

    Ok it's been awhile since I posted a picture of me. I just did it because it's a work in progress. By that I mean, I need to get back on track and feel like I did when I lost 20lbs. It's the picture with me in my pink shirt, thinner, glowing. I felt healthier, and alive! By alive I mean I was able ... Read more

  • Do you soak your beans & then pour the water off????

Then decided to read the bag to see if they had a favorite recipe listed. Instead I read that the beans should be soaked over night (something I neve... Read more

    Well, I can hardly breathe, and now I cough with a drag off my cigarettes. Before I would only cough in the morning, or when I first light up, but now it's constant so I am trying the ecig for about the 3rd time. I sure hope I can use it and I hope it really helps me to quit! I have been smoking f... Read more
