This morning's breakfast was so much more interesting than many of the wonderful things I ate over the past few days. I cook a 5 grain oatmeal with sliced almonds, low-sugar dried cranberries and 5 strawberries. Water, no milk, no sweeteners. I ... Read more

I cooked small sides all week so I could relax today. Reheating is fine for us. The smoked turkey from Amish country is bathing in steam in the oven. I baked 3 types of bread, which is no challenge for someone who made bread thrice weekly for ye... Read more

Having a cold helps my compliance. I will try to keep the resolve, minus tissues and coughing, and find a weight loss in a few weeks. DH received his last infusion on Monday. He showed off to his nurse on Monday by making fancy moves wal... Read more

I posted this reply on ENDUROVET's Blog "I knew better..." [Challenges aren't my thing. I get squeamish about competitiveness and all that. I think I have a flaw about failing to live up to expectations or something like that. Somethin... Read more

How about that? I didn't step on the scale for a very long time back in the day and have no idea what I weighed. I'm thinking it was 2005 or 2006. DH and I took a trip to San Francisco then out to Yosemite and surrounding areas. I remember se... Read more

One of the voices keeps telling me I'm drowning in responsibility. That one has been around for a long time. "Get it done". It talked to me this morning as I took the trash out at 5:30 in my robe and fuzzy slippers. Another tells me I ... Read more

We drove to near Ashville, NC to visit a distant relative we hadn't seen in 30+ years. DH was concerned as she's getting "up" there, widowed for 6 years and considering moving further away. She's in great shape, feisty and knows exactly what ... Read more

We're heading out, this time driving, to visit a relative we haven't seen in years. Lucky for us the entire trip "must" be done while driving through Shenandoah National Park then along the Blue Ridge Parkway! Oh, gosh, it's fall and the leaves ... Read more
