Sitting on babies, not so easy any more!

When DD1 first asked me to watch the three kids so they could attend a wedding, I hesitatingly said yes. DH is cute but no help. He wants to snuggle, not play on the floor. The dynamics of three is very apparent and the pairings are rough and tu... Read more
Doing it right

I stopped by the nurses' office got my check up in the gym. They've got newfangled equipment like a GPS stick for height (mine's the same, still 5'6") and this whole body gizmo you stand on in bare feet while holding electrode handles. This give... Read more
Relearning again and again

It's not that I can't, it's that I won't do the full keto diet that's such a rage. I'm still squeamish about whole eggs and my cousin has been bombarding my with "it's ok, the science was all wrong". I wanted that peach for a snack last night, c... Read more
Feeling my new exercises today, owww. Good owww
Saturday, August 25, 2018      11 comments

I'm a diligent strength trainer. I love the lifting, tugging and rhythmic pulling of various cable machines. I prefer them over free weights as my joints, mainly my spine, don't like when I veer from a proper plane. Yesterday we went out of my c... Read more

The nice thing about grandchildren and granddogs, you don't have to keep 'em!

Today I take my little friend back to his dog-parents! DH was laughing as I have a permanent shadow. I will enjoy sitting without a heat generating lap robe. I will enjoy sleeping without someone wrapped around my head on my pillow. ... Read more
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head.....

Recently a TV weather person said, and I misquote the exact number, we've had 200% of average rain this summer. He was referring to Central Park in NYC measurements but 35 miles away as the crow flies, I've got the same bucket! ... Read more

My furry passenger snoozed in his carrier in the front seat on the one hour ride home. Who wouldn't with the sun shining in and the air conditioner blowing on you? In the house, before I could finish unzipping the carrier, the coffee-n-crea... Read more
No plans leaves a lot to do
Sunday, August 12, 2018      10 comments

This weekend of 'no plans' has come up with all sort of little things to do. A bit of cleaning, a bit of cooking all those home grown veggies that continue to ripen when I'm not looking. Shopping out of necessity when my summer robe announc... Read more
No plans

My SIL2 and granddog were supposed to visit for the weekend while DD2 worked, but the rain ruined the plans. Not the fact that it's raining, but it rained so much up by them that roads are closed and he can't get to the train! Oh, well. We ... Read more

My experiment of one on day 7 or 8 is going better than I thought. I'm not following a particular diet of hyper low carbs but have greatly decreased the amount of them I was eating AND have added some extra fats to my diet. Blood tests in a ... Read more

Three years ago today my man underwent surgery for a life-threatening condition. I saw him at the end of the day in ICU hooked up to 5-6 tubes, monitors and had just had ventilator removed as he could breathe on his own. This morning while ... Read more
"Ole" new foods
Monday, August 06, 2018      11 comments

I keep falling back on Mexican or Latin American recipes but some can be carb loaded. Home grown tomatoes, cumin and hot peppers in my omelet vegetables. The last of my cilantro cheered the flavors. Very spicy dill pickle spears made b... Read more
to Keto or not to Keto

I'm not interested in the carb shutdown my dear cousin has been promoting. She and I have similar genetics, similar builds and tastes. She's had both hips replaced before 60 and has been struggling to loose the weight...we are bookends. She... Read more
