Vacation struggles
Thursday, September 05, 2019      13 comments

We have packed for our vacation. Unpacked. Re-packed. Changed our minds on clothing/shoes. Less is more. By now you should know me. Sneakers or hiking shoes, jeans and sweatshirts will do. I try to fit 2 weeks into a carry-on. Normally we'd hav... Read more

I'm contemplating I may be an intuitive eating failure. The word "failure" seems cruel but it works in the sense I haven't done so well. From my recent attempts come a few extra pounds and an examination of my food choices. From failure comes su... Read more

Anyone skip stones? I can get maybe 2 skips. My brother could get 3. I concede he can throw better than I can! Enough sibling rivalry! I woke up and it was August first. Somehow I missed a few days and then it was the 10th. Somewhere in the... Read more
Decommissioning my garden, too!
Thursday, August 29, 2019      12 comments

Temps in the low 60's at night. Cooler breezes wafting through the windows in the daytime. Pool covered in the back yard meaning no more maintenance! Ahhhhhh! My garden did not fare so well this year. If I had to rely on the fruits... Read more
Waning summer...
Tuesday, August 27, 2019      14 comments

Summer is coming to a close. We are covering our pool early this year as it's gotten quite chilly at night and the water temperature has dropped below my threshold. Fighting algae and cold costs $$$ and is not worth the struggle. My plants h... Read more

I had some fun last Wednesday. DH, a friend and I went to the Atlantic City Air Show. The planes were awesome! It took me a while to get the pictures together. ... Read more

I tend to be first in line if I can. Ice cream or shots, doesn't matter. I'm a get it and get it over person. Yeah, even with ice cream! My bigger reason is it takes 2 weeks for the antibodies to maximize and and I want all the antibodi... Read more

I've been silent on my latest quest to fix what's broken. Originally I asked my MD to check a bump worthy of investigation on my hip and most likely a lipoma. It didn't show on an ultrasound. The radiologist suggested I have an MRI as I'v... Read more
On being a "muddler"

From online Merriam Webster: muddling through- to achieve a degree of success without much planning or effort Huh. That describes my current status very nicely. I've not been planning much in the way of meals but haven't been overeatin... Read more

Still looking for answers
Friday, August 09, 2019      9 comments

I've looked high and low, under beds and on shelves. I STILL haven't found the answers to my inability to change my lifestyle eating habits. If I could find that ability to change, I'd be healthier. I see exactly what I am doing, how I sho... Read more
