I was amazed at how easily yesterday went. I had figured out my breakfast, I wanted to make a hash. Then I realized that cheese and eggs were out. No problem....I went to the cookbook my son had given me for Christmas (Forks Over Knives) and... Read more

My son came from South Carolina to celebrate his youngest sister's birthday. He comes every year, from wherever he lives. It's always great to see him, and I appreciate that he honors her especially...she was born with Spina Bifida, and living... Read more

Last week I had the Bod Pod done. It's like a space capsule you sit in for five minutes while the machines measure the fat and muscle in your body. This was my second time. The first time was in January. Good news/Bad news. I've lost tw... Read more
