I have just gotten back from spending 3 1/2 days with my children in a fairly spacious rental home outside of Wisconsin Dells, called Turkey Run. It was really a beautiful home with 5 spacious bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a nice sized kitchen & livin... Read more
Daisy has the right idea.....
Saturday, July 14, 2018      18 comments

This one I really had to share. All winter long I tried and tried to get Daisy to walk on the treadmill so she could get some exercise on those days that it was just too cold, icy or snowy for us to take a walk (and there were a lot of them). ... Read more
Yesterday made it 21 days
Thursday, July 12, 2018      15 comments

Some of you may remember that I challenged myself to shut down my computer around 8:30 p.m. and do some gentle yoga stretching and foam rolling. Well, I'm happy to report that I have met my goal for 21 days - sort of. The most important part o... Read more
Do you ever have those days.....
Sunday, July 08, 2018      13 comments

I need to do my exercises - I really do need to do them. But I'm avoiding it with everything I can think of. I took Daisy outside even though it's really too hot to be out for more than a couple of minutes. I peeled the potatoes for dinner ev... Read more
Great Weigh-Out at the gym today
Saturday, July 07, 2018      12 comments

I have been participating in the 60 day challenge at Lifetime Fitness - this is the third time I've done this challenge, and by far my best results. I do it not because I want to be buff - although that would be a nice side perk falling into th... Read more
Plans change.... today the weeds win
Tuesday, July 03, 2018      9 comments

I have one garden that desperately needs to be weeded. I got into it for about 40 minutes yesterday after my time at the gym, but the sun was so hot and I had such an intense workout that I just couldn't do any more. I'm a firm believer in not... Read more
The beautiful music of rain!
Sunday, July 01, 2018      10 comments

I just love listening to rain! When we used to go camping (in a little camper) and a rainy day came along, my favorite thing was the lie on the bed and listen to the rain coming down. What else are you going to do on a rainy afternoon in such ... Read more

I am excited to get started with our upcoming 5% Summer Challenge which begins tomorrow at midnight. For the first time in 9 challenges I feel like I am really ready for this one. I have gotten myself into a routine for going to the gym - maki... Read more
The party is over.....

The housewarming went very well - eventually. It was touch and go at first. We planned to be there about 1/2 hour early - I got a call from Lauriellen as we were driving. "Mom, I'm getting stressed out because Bryan won't do what I want him t... Read more
Tonight I'm Watching Hallmark!
Saturday, June 23, 2018      12 comments

I've worked all day long today - and in the kitchen, not my favorite room of the house. I made a double batch of potato salad for tomorrow's festivities. Now you might wonder why the heck it took me all day! First I had to go to the store... Read more

My daughter and her dogs have gone home - and can I say thank goodness! Trying to co-exist with an adult child can sometimes be challenging, especially if she has some very opposite points of view than you have. I don't care. I believe that e... Read more
Getting Back on the Horse
Thursday, June 21, 2018      10 comments

My mom always used to say that. There was a time in my life that I actually had an opportunity to ride horses. We had a cabin about 60 miles north on a nice little lake, my aunt and uncle had the cabin next door. They bought two horses that t... Read more
What a blessing it is to have Air Conditioning
Monday, June 18, 2018      13 comments

Our Air Conditioner started leaking on Saturday morning - the 2nd day of a 3 day heat advisory. Water all over the floor by the furnace. My DH looked and looked and then with sad eyes said "we have to turn it off, Kath". He knew I would not b... Read more
Day one and DONE
Sunday, June 17, 2018      10 comments

I have been trying to get myself into a new evening habit for so long now I can't even remember when I started. Several days a week I write in my journal the very plan I wrote in my blog yesterday! Apparently, putting it out there to be accoun... Read more
My plan
Saturday, June 16, 2018      11 comments

I have been wanting to change up my evening routine for a long time now. Those hours after dinner and before going to bed have become so non-productive and it's time for me to change that. I usually find myself either in front of this computer... Read more
