    It's a mild weather day here today. It'll be mostly cloudy here today and that is okay with me and my daughter. Both budgie birds are doing well and say cheep, cheep! My walk today will be indoors. In the afternoon I'll be doing some dancing. Have a great day, everyone!... Read more

  • Brrrr

    10/21/2020 12:14:57 AM, by GETULLY

    Got to the village a little later than planned but knew what I would face in the un-insulated, un-heated (except for my little heater) loom house. At least the humidity was right in the middle where it should be. In spite of the cold (wearing four layers part of the time) I got the loom al... Read more

    Got a call from my doctor today about an antibiotic for my sinuses and for my fibromyalgia symptoms. The antibiotic is the same one that I had before.

  • The enemy vs you

    10/19/2020 10:37:09 PM, by USMAWIFE

    The enemy is called the accuser. He’ll remind you of every mistake you’ve made, every time you’ve failed. He’d love for you to wear negative labels: unworthy, washed up, no future. Don’t wear those labels. Say what God says about you, “I’m forgiven, I’m redeemed, I’m re... Read more

All landed property descended in the female line, from mother to daughter, on the assumption, perhaps, that maternity is a matter of fact, paterni... Read more

    I didn't write this, but I feel this to my core. For the exhausted woman who showers a few minutes longer to cry with the water... For the person hidden in the bathroom, because she needs a few minutes of tranquility with her cigarette while slipping tears from her eyes. For the woman... Read more

  • Getting through difficult times

    10/1/2020 7:52:41 PM, by USMAWIFE

    I know it’s hard to take the bad with the good, to accept the lessons life is trying to teach you. I know it’s hard to believe that what hurt you, did not break you, it shaped you. I know it’s hard to find purpose in the unruly and and unwanted storms that cascade through life, but believe... Read more

    Happy October...go get em, goal getters! Was reviewing a few 'sayings'... I'm a whole grain / wheat gal, but found this apropos: "The whiter the bread-the sooner you're dead!" Moved to blog now because of this key-for-me pithy aphorism: I'm making "If you bite it-write it" ... Read more

    10/1/2020 2:38:06 AM, by CONGOGIRL

    Beginning a new month, always a good time to reflect, evaluate and plan. So far I have stuck with IF for 7 months ! And it seems to be helpful. Have been doing 15 - 20 min workouts first thing in the morning and then a 1 mile indoor walk instead of coffee after lunch. At least 5 30 min cardio wal... Read more

    I was hungry for goulash and garlic bread. I had some Italian seasoned ground turkey that I was going to make burgers out of but decided to make goulash out of. It was lean meat.

A salad with mixed lettuce, canned chicken, blackberries, bacon bits and almonds a cup of strawberry banana yogurt. I was also tired so it took me a while to eat it all up. I ... Read more

    Begin again. Little moments. Tending to the flowers. Cutting the fruit. Opening the curtains so that the entire sky can greet you. It’s never easy but, no matter. Steam from the tea so quiet. An open book, and door, and arms. You have time. Time to create a life that you can sta... Read more

    It was a hard week dealing with a back injury. I did manage to make my step goal with the help of the elliptical. I was even rewarded by a change in the scale this morning. One pound down, 17 to go. I started the week off (Sunday) with a hike at a nearby lake. The trail was only 1.5 mile... Read more

    9/27/2020 6:14:33 PM, by USMAWIFE

    Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and ye... Read more

    I've had a fitbit for 5 years - or rather - over the past 5 years I've had a number of them. The first was a closeout that had a defective wristband that broke within the warranty so the second, free one, came in as an upgrade. That one stopped working for some reason I can't remember but after the ... Read more
