5% Summer Challenge begins soon
Friday, June 15, 2018      8 comments

The 5% Summer Challenge begins on Saturday, June 30th. For me that is perfect timing because the 60 day Challenge I am working on through my gym will be ending the first week of July. So a clean hand-off between challenges. I am now on ... Read more

First, I'd like to thank each and every one of you who has offered up prayers and suggestions for the situation my dear youngest daughter is dealing with at her job and with her pregnancy. We saw the ob/gyn today and everything is fine. The do... Read more
I need a wife!
Sunday, June 10, 2018      15 comments

The other day I was thinking that I needed to get away - for a month, or maybe 6 weeks. To a place where someone else will be responsible for the healthy foods I eat; creating those healthy meals, buying, cleaning and prepping those fruits and ... Read more
Not the way I planned my day...

Many of you know that my youngest daughter Lauriellen is pregnant for the first time at age 39. Just by virtue of her age, she has been watched a bit more closely by her OB. This morning while Daisy and I were walking I received a call fro... Read more
The last day!
Friday, June 01, 2018      11 comments

I can't believe 8 weeks have gone by so quickly, but today is the last day of our Spring 5% Challenge. I probably won't make my 5% goal, but I'm pretty darn close to having lost 4% and I know I have added some muscle while loosing some body fat... Read more
A Nice Surprise!

My husband's phone rang as we were eating dinner tonight – his ring is the theme from Highlander, a popular TV show in the early 90’s if anyone remembers it. I think – always during dinner! Even though we were just having a hamburger from Culv... Read more
My favorite class - Life Barre
Wednesday, May 30, 2018      12 comments

Daisy and I had our walk this morning - we took the short loop because one of us overslept this morning (I'll let you use your imaginations). We had some lovely rain last night which has cooled things off; of course, the humidity is up there bu... Read more
Winter, Spring and Summer
Tuesday, May 29, 2018      10 comments

Winter, true, really cold and very snowy winter lasted until the very end of April. We had a few days of Spring where the air was fresh and the bird were singing. I snapped a few photos on my walk a couple weeks ago. The blossoms were so read... Read more

I have many people to be grateful for this Memorial Day. While I am one of the lucky ones who has not lost a loved one at war, I have had many peop... Read more
This and that on a Sunday Morning
Sunday, May 27, 2018      13 comments

I do love Sundays - they seem like such peaceful days to me. Daisy and I got out extra early this morning because it's going to be a very hot and steamy Sunday today. The air was cool this morning but the humidity must have been high because I... Read more
Last week of the 5% Spring Challenge
Saturday, May 26, 2018      11 comments

It's hard for me to believe that we've gone through 7 weeks already - with only one more to go. This has been a good challenge for me. I doubt I'll make my 5% but right now I'm at just better than 3% lost as well as a couple of inches. My clo... Read more
Iced Tea
Friday, May 18, 2018      19 comments

I would imagine many of you are already avid ice tea drinkers. I am not - never have been. For years and years I have gone out to lunch and my friends order all varieties of iced tea - but not me. Water please! Or if it's a very special day ... Read more
Here she is with her new trim
Thursday, April 26, 2018      18 comments

My office window looks out directly to the Big Tree, I can see all of her... well, all of the width of her. She reaches way higher toward the sky than my window allows. She looks a bit sparse, the trim has certainly changed her appearance. B... Read more
The Miracle and the Big Tree
Wednesday, April 25, 2018      18 comments

We have a very large Maple tree in the center of our back yard. She had a sister tree when we first bought the property but unfortunately she succumbed to the Straight Line Winds of July 3, 1983. She was further back on our property so luckily... Read more
The Best
Sunday, April 22, 2018      16 comments

Daisy and I got out for our walk early this morning - before 7 am. It was so beautiful outside. The birds were singing, the ducks and geese flying overhead, the squirrels scampering around the underbrush rustling those leaves that are finally ... Read more
