I haven't lost any weight this week. As a matter of fact, I've gained 2 pounds since my doctor's visit a couple of weeks ago. Interestingly, my blood work results were great. Total cholesterol fell from 241 to 188 with the bad stuff falling a... Read more
Cookie Jars, Chicken Broth, and Black Walnuts
Wednesday, September 20, 2017      5 comments

Yesterday I broke a cookie jar that we've had for over 30 years. It wasn't a valuable antique or anything like that, just a plain old glass cookie jar. I didn't know I liked it that much until it was broken. I canned chicken broth. I a... Read more
Long Time, No Blog
Tuesday, September 19, 2017      4 comments

Haven't made a blog entry in a while. Nothing inspiring or uplifting to share, I reckon. No weight gain but no weight loss, just staying where I am. Gotten a little out of my walking routine but trying to get back into the habit. Always plan... Read more

Yesterday I posted about my dread about today's doctor appointment. This morning I was ready to go, dressed in my lightest weight clothes and flip flops that I could easily slip off. I decided to go ahead and take my vitamins. Since we moved ... Read more

So far this week I've not exercised and eaten too much, lots of it junk. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow where I'll probably weigh more than I ever have. What I want to do is run away. What I will do is plod on, make better choices, and ... Read more

This week, I've had to watch one of my children struggle. When they were all small, I thought it would be easier when they were grown. Back then, I could fix most of their problems and their troubles were somewhat temporary. Now there are ver... Read more

For the past several months work has been going on remodeling our garage into an apartment for my husband and me. It was completed about 3 weeks ago and we have moved out of the house. We've found that this space suits us very well. Our archi... Read more
Someday Closet
Monday, June 26, 2017      15 comments

The closet in my spare room is where I hang the clothes that used to fit. I've been tempted to donate them but I've kept them hanging in there, thinking that someday I'll lose weight and be able to wear them again. Yesterday I decided to try o... Read more
Home Delivery Meal Kits
Thursday, June 22, 2017      3 comments

Our son's family is trying out the home delivery meal kits. She cooked 2 of them here this week and my husband tasted them. He liked them. I had already prepared our meals, and they really just had enough for their family so I passed on it. ... Read more

I like Mondays. As a person who thrives on routine, weekends can be hard for me. But on Monday, everything slides right back into place. I've found that my Mondays set the tone for my week. Today I did pretty well with my eating decisions, g... Read more

Yesterday our son, daughter-in-law, and their 2 boys grilled steaks for supper as a father's day gift. Today our children who live locally came for lunch after church. We had a Tex-Mex meal with homemade enchiladas and tacos, rice, refried bean... Read more
Danger Zone
Friday, June 16, 2017      6 comments

My scale says that I lost 3 pounds this week. That's a victory, but it's also a dangerous area for me. My mind says that I deserve a nice reward, something crunchy and salty like the corn chips my husband brought home the other day. I could j... Read more
Essential Oils
Thursday, June 15, 2017      7 comments

My daughter-in-law is really into essential oils. I have to admit that I'm a bit skeptical but I'll give most reasonable things a try. I have some mild arthritis pain in my thumb and she gave me a blend of oils in a roller bottle to try. It d... Read more
Nothing much

My goal is to blog every day, but some days don't seem to have many blog worthy moments. This seemed to be one of those, but as I think about it, it had some very memorable times. On our way to run errands this morning, there was a turtl... Read more
