FORGOT to make lunch salads???
Wednesday, October 24, 2018      23 comments

Oh my goodness. I generally do this (for a couple of days) the night before. Monday/Tuesday made Sunday: Wednesday/Thursday made Tuesday; Friday made Thursday . . . ) But: I forgot. And: I'm running late. No worries. I'll... Read more
It's Raining . . .
Tuesday, October 23, 2018      27 comments

. . . and it's going to rain all day. So: I'm VERY glad I scooted home after work promptly yesterday and used the last minutes of daylight to . . . plant those hyacinth bulbs!! They will get soaked in thoroughly: a good thing. Plenty ... Read more
Lazy Sunday
Monday, October 22, 2018      18 comments

What I needed to do yesterday? Store the patio furniture in the garage. Get my "kitchen table" hyacinth bulbs from last winter out of the basement and planted. Plus the usual routines: sheet laundry, salad-making for the upcoming week. B... Read more
Cauliflower Soup is Simmering . . .
Sunday, October 21, 2018      25 comments

What was in the fridge? A couple of broccoli stalks. A couple of tough ol' giant carrots, scraped. Some rather limp celery stalks. All diced up with four smallish elderly not-so-new potatoes, unpeeled but de-sprouted! And a not-huge bu... Read more
Gorgeous Day
Saturday, October 20, 2018      23 comments

Sunshine, blue skies, the red maple in my back yard is at its most beautiful and casting a rosy glow into the rooms on the west side of our old old house. Laundry done: heading to the gym, the library, and to meet an old friend who's just ... Read more
Walk On, Walk On
Friday, October 19, 2018      21 comments

Yesterday's recess walk was absolutely lovely -- although the schedule got crowded and I did not make it out the door until about 2 pm. And yes, I thought to myself that I had plenty more to do and I should just skip it and . . . I did ... Read more
Scheduling a Recess Walk Today . . .
Thursday, October 18, 2018      24 comments

. . . yes, the calendar permits!! And it will be a brisk +4 at noon . . . maybe a little sun. The leaves are quite lovely: love the autumn smell and the crunchy sound!! Something to look forward too -- along with my tuna made OKM-style (... Read more
Good Health News . . .
Wednesday, October 17, 2018      35 comments

, , , yes, I've been worried about my health (with that capital H so well known to all cancer survivors). And after a further round of testing and consult with specialist: all clear. Yay!! And whew!!! Such a big relief. Thought I ... Read more
That Butternut Squash Soup . . . .
Monday, October 15, 2018      28 comments

Oh my. It really is DELICIOUS!!! And a bowlful tasted so good after yesterday's golf. I used two bags of frozen diced butternut squash. Half a bag of baby carrots (a little past their prime). Two celery stalks, diced. Some o... Read more
Cast Iron Corn Bread
Sunday, October 14, 2018      27 comments

There is something about this time of the year which makes me feel like baking corn bread. I'd seen a recipe in a recent O magazine (and lost it) but scoured on line and then tweaked what I found there a bit more. Preheat oven to 400 ... Read more
Good Day
Saturday, October 13, 2018      19 comments

So much of the work I do is not gratifying -- immediately at least. But every once in a while, I have a good day. Yeah. Worth noticing. Keeps me doing it, for sure. And really lifted my spirits too. All right then: three... Read more
Recess Walk
Thursday, October 11, 2018      21 comments

Although low energy and still coughing to the point of sore ribs . . . I did get out for a recess walk yesterday. Probably our last glorious day of really warm weather this fall: and the leaves were gorgeous. A fuzzy caterpillar was ... Read more
Tracking Vigilance
Wednesday, October 10, 2018      25 comments

For some reason I've been less dedicated to the nutrition tracking recently: just eating the same old same old and assuming I'm OK. But: yesterday I tracked every mouthful. "Thought" it was a relatively light day but no no no: I was close ... Read more
Lotsa Sleep
Tuesday, October 09, 2018      17 comments

Yup, it seems to have helped. I'm not 100% post-cold this morning: but much better. And I read in my morning newspaper that chronic sleep deprivation (averaging 4-6 hours a night) affects not only memory "consolidation" but logical r... Read more
Snuffly
Monday, October 08, 2018      23 comments

Yup, dealing with a cold . . . sneezy, snuffly, achy, low energy. And too be expected at this time of the year I suppose (also after dealing with lots of stress which tends to reduce "resistance" to germs . . . ). I was lazy to the ... Read more
