I think I've been doing pretty well in sticking to my new healthier goals - I'm exercising most days if even for just 15 minutes, Daisy and I are getting out to walk even if the weather isn't cooperating, and I've been cooking healthy meals near... Read more

Friday, February 19, 2016      6 comments

For 5 weeks now I've been in the Bible Study / Nutrition class called Treasury of Healthy Eating. It's been very interesting, very enlightening, and a little bit frightening. It's a video series that we watch each week with lots of detail on n... Read more

I wasn't feeling great when I went to bed last night, didn't sleep very well and woke up feeling even worse. I decided to relax, not to push myself and just take the day as it came. Because I was a bit sick to my stomach I also decided to make... Read more

Nothing very exciting, really - but a pretty big deal to me. Anyone who knows me know how much I dislike winter. Never did get into the snow activities, don't ski, snowmobile, or ice skate. Thought once or twice about snowshoeing but you have... Read more

I made several important "goals" for myself at the beginning of this month and it's time to own up to January's progress and defeats. For the most part I am pleased with what I have accomplished, and I've decided to look at my defeats as learni... Read more

I've lived in this house for going on 34 years. I was 8 months pregnant with twins when my (then) husband & his parents chose this house. His parents were graciously loaning us the money so we didn't have to finance, which is why they had a sa... Read more

Every year since 2009 my husband says "we should travel more". January 9, 2009 is when I lost my job of 21 years - about 3 to 5 years earlier than I had planned to retire. The first few years it was hard to justify the cost of traveling becaus... Read more

One of my goals for 2016 is to get myself out of the house and do things - anything that will connect me to humans.... well, maybe animals too! January's activity was to start a Bible Study/Book Club called 'The Treasury of Healthy Eating'... Read more
