The Most Important Decision?
Wednesday, August 01, 2018      29 comments

According to UK divorce lawyer Baroness Fiona Shackleton, the most important decision is who you decide to have a child with -- if you're going to have children at all. And, she says, schools should teach more about how to choose a good "m... Read more
Organizing Treats!
Monday, July 30, 2018      29 comments

One of the main things I've learned from my DH: organize at least one treat for yourself every day. Of course it can be a small treat and absolutely it doesn't have to involve any calories at all. His treats seldom do: and HE doesn't have to w... Read more
Curried Cauliflower Lentil Soup
Sunday, July 29, 2018      23 comments

It's been awhile since I made a pot of curry soup: but that's what was in my fridge today. Carrot, celery, onions: as always. Some brown rice. A can of lentils and a can of died tomatoes. A very nice local cauliflower and some red and yellow... Read more

Saturday, July 28, 2018      29 comments

The older I get, the more I think and even know that kindness matters. Consistent kindness: not just occasional kindness. And the kindness that is careful and watchful of the worlds of others -- no matter how unobtrusive those worlds are. ... Read more
Revenge!!
Thursday, July 26, 2018      25 comments

My flower boxes on the verandah and the high deck have been subject to squirrel excavations this summer. I suppose in part because the soil is moist and "diggable", whereas the soil elsewhere has been pretty hard with the extended drought prior ... Read more
Rainy days!
Wednesday, July 25, 2018      27 comments

My watering chores (flower baskets and boxes, flower beds only) typically were taking about an hour a day during the drought. The lawn (not watered) was getting crunchy and brown! But: we've had several days of pretty heavy rainfall with more ex... Read more

A Short Summer Road Trip!
Sunday, July 22, 2018      23 comments

We took a few days away together -- to Stratford Ontario for some theatre (The Sound of Music, To Kill a Mockingbird) and a little golf too. Staying two nights in a lovely old inn with wonderful food -- we weren't TOO indulgent! We often... Read more
Bird Bath
Friday, July 20, 2018      26 comments

What a pleasure the bird bath is -- for the birds, and for me! Last night sitting out on the back deck with our golden Charlie, while I was running several loads of laundry so we can get away for a couple days, and while the sun slowly set,... Read more
Anticipatory Stress Eating
Thursday, July 19, 2018      17 comments

Yup. That's what was happening. Good to know. Even if after the fact. Got through the stressful event. And was the stressful event made easier by my queasy stomach, headache and dehydration? No. No. No. Good ... Read more
Nachos!
Wednesday, July 18, 2018      27 comments

What was I thinking? After last night's lovely golf game, I permitted myself to order nachos for supper. Nachos with cheese and chicken and jalapenos and tomatoes and sour cream and salsa. When was the last time I ordered nachos? Years ... Read more

Kayaking: Best Place Yet!!
Monday, July 16, 2018      33 comments

It's fun to try a new place for kayaking! And yesterday we found the best place yet. A broad meandering slow river. Once we were under the bridge at the put-in and just a short distance up-stream, we were in a summer world of birds, d... Read more
