Feeling so thankful and happy that my allergies/asthma are under control. Yesterday we were visiting our kids in Ohio and sat outside for 2 hours at our grandson's soccer game. It's the height of pollen season there, and I didn't have a single... Read more

Yesterday was my first time at a chiropractor. Several days ago, while getting a haircut, free massages were being offered right there---as a way of attracting new customers to the chiropractor's office. I LOVED the massage!! And one follow-u... Read more

Just finished another elliptical workout of 60 minutes and set 2 new PR's. After warm-up, I did the fastest mile I've done yet (12:40), and then after recuperating (mmm.. gasping), I decided to experiment with upping the tension. That kicked... Read more

Yes, I'm going crazy with my new elliptical trainer---sort of a late Christmas present to myself. It's fun watching the Olympics while doing my own "thing." It's a far better whole-body workout than my former indoor bike. I used to be a... Read more

Just back from a quick trip to Arizona to see my mom and sister, where it was so lovely and warm there, compared to snowy Michigan. Had a fabulous time with my sister and brother-in-law. All was not fun and games though, since I was there for... Read more

Wow---are we living in the ice-cube state. Schools cancelled for several days, and even the university where my DH teaches, which rarely cancels classes, has cancelled the first two days of the semester. It's too dangerous for students to dri... Read more
Making healthy soups
Wednesday, December 11, 2013      9 comments

We're snowed in today, so no hikes out in the wilderness today to look for bald eagles. What to do on a "trapped in the house" snow day? Make lots of soups for the freezer. We're hosting kids/grandkids over Christmas and I like to have th... Read more
