Last night several fun, funny things happened. Not so funny, DD1 was involved in a 5 car pileup on her way to work in the morning and ultimately was slammed by two cars who didn't stop while a fender bender was being investigated on the roa... Read more

Yesterday I pulled the vegetable garden plants no longer producing or looking tired. The squirrels had eaten the bottoms of the big tomatoes and dug around to hide their stashes! I harvested at least 10 Ancho chilies to throw in the freezer. Al... Read more

Will someone please tell me what the heck to do about this weight loss stall? My diet has never been better. Cleaner. Junk free. Well controlled. I'm not hungry, I'm not sneaking. I'm tracking everything. 1150-1350 calories a day by choice.... Read 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

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

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

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

How does OJ enjoy a weekend without DH who has gone away with buddies for a few days? By overworking! emoticon... Read more

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

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
