I had time to kill while DH was in therapy; I'm still nursing my surgical leg with NO exercise for me for 4 weeks. I hit the big box store and in of all places, had an NSV! I picked up a pair of jeans and shorts, even knowing I didn't have ... Read more

Help in the kitchen
Monday, April 10, 2017      12 comments

I've been getting my eating in better order than it has been. I know it's about 75% mental preparation and 25% kitchen for me. I buy the right things, cook and serve myself great meals yet I search and destroy for snacks at odd times. I'm bett... Read more
The "it figures" in my life.

It figures I'd have some kind of complication for a routine procedure. I had the mass removed from my leg today and everything went well. Almost. When I saw DH in recovery he said the doctor told him the needle broke during sew-up! He's only... Read more

We need the water. I know. The end of hibernation is in sight, the grass is beginning to green and birdsong is in the air. But I can't play in the yard because I will make a lasting impression on the ground with my heavy tread on the mud und... Read more

Bonus blog: Nature in my yard in pictures. Warning, the rabbit had already expired.

I think the rabbit must have died of natural causes as it was whole and in my yard away from the street. AND, I know the turkey buzzards don't kill their food. ... Read more
A few down, again. Spread joy up to the maximum.

How do I celebrate a victory over 4-5 pounds lost for the umpteenth time? I gotta accentuate the positive. I download my meals for the past months, sort, dissect and calculate what worked best and how I feel. Latch on to the affirmative. ... Read more
Not a fan of "fool", I'm a practical and too serious gal. Mixed bag for today.

April is the month of birthdays in my universe. Stretching it a bit the party started 2 days ago when my dear cousin and her sister upped their numbers. Today is my BFF's and SIL2s natal days. My mother and her four sisters managed to have their... Read more

I have created a group of better meals for myself as well as gotten my act together, again. My dentist had given me several recipes that I enjoyed and could tweak to different cuisines. I have become a fan of riced cauliflower. I've got a... Read more

I can't say I've been complaining, much, but.... I had another long talk TO DH about his reliance on me for all his needs. I struck a nerve. It's not my diabetes. It's not my appointments. It's not my job but I've been doing it. If t... Read more
