Oh those Knees.....
Wednesday, December 07, 2016      9 comments

We don't think about our knees when we are young. We run and jump and play and do all the fun things in the world that we want to do - our knees are just there to help us. I certainly never gave one bit of thought to what I was putting my knee... Read more
Winter Wonderland
Sunday, December 04, 2016      6 comments

I woke up this morning to snow - that light but wet snow that just sticks to everything. My backyard looks like a beautiful winter wonderland. The snow is on all the bushes and trees around, and we have a lot of them. Nature's decorating. ... Read more
My new smart phone is smarter than me!
Saturday, December 03, 2016      11 comments

So today has been quite the experience for me. We finally did it. My DH and I have been carrying around flip phones forever. His view - all we need phones for is to talk. I have to agree after getting myself a Samsung tablet a few months ago... Read more
I learned something today

On Wednesday Tom and I went to IKEA. I needed a new couch for my family room. It needs to pull out into a bed, but it can't be too big or too heavy. I also wanted to get a display case so I could finally pull out of storage my doll collection... Read more
Thanksgiving 2016
Friday, November 25, 2016      12 comments

I spent about 3 weeks getting ready for Thanksgiving this year - it's the first time I hosted for awhile. It's been a busy but rewarding couple of days. Brandon, Shelly & Annie arrived on Wednesday evening. Annie and Daisy were so happy t... Read more
Saying goodbye never felt so good!

This morning I pulled out all the jeans in my drawer. I decided it was time to try them on. To my great joy - 4 pair are now too big, and 3 more are wearable but not for long. The new jeans I bought this summer are actually too big for me now... Read more
Rachelle (daughter #2) is 39 today
Monday, November 21, 2016      7 comments

I'm having a hard time believing that it was 39 years ago I was holding my sweet little Rachelle for the first time; and it was on a Monday. She was soooo big - 10 lbs. 13 oz. She was also 2 weeks late. Now we know that the doctor should have... Read more
My rest day

I took the day off yesterday. I really had no choice in the matter. Friday was the last day of the 5% Fall Challenge and I have worked very hard t... Read more
I knew it had to come
Saturday, November 19, 2016      6 comments

But did it have to be so all or nothing? On Wednesday it was over 60 degrees and sunny, on Thursday it was in the 50's and cloudy. Yesterday started out okay but turned really nasty - first with really strong winds accompanied by heavy rain an... Read more
No walk today!

This morning when Daisy and I went outside it was still mild but it felt wet outside even though we hadn't had any rain. About an hour later there was serious thunder (thunder in November in Minnesota is practically unheard of), and shortly... Read more
Daisy is ready for the holidays
Thursday, November 17, 2016      11 comments

I sure wish I was. Daisy had her pre-holiday bath yesterday afternoon. She wasn't exactly happy about it but she will do almost anything for a treat. It was the warmest day of the week but I turned up the heat anyway - it takes her so lon... Read more
Step one: Done!
Wednesday, November 16, 2016      16 comments

The cupboard doors have been hung - only 9 days after I pledged to get this project finished - and I've been waiting for 5 1/2 months! Actually, the project itself isn't quite finished. A couple of doors don't fit just right (they never did) a... Read more
I woke up Happy this morning...
Tuesday, November 15, 2016      6 comments

This probably sounds like it should be the norm for most people, but I not slept well for so many years that on the off chance I have a good night, it really makes me happy. In 1974 when I was pregnant with my first child my mother said to me ... Read more
Lessons I've learned this summer
Monday, November 14, 2016      9 comments

This past summer has been rather challenging for me but I have learned a lot about myself and what I can (and should) do to manage better when difficult times hit in the future, because we all know they will. 1) Worry is a waste of time. ... Read more
A brand new week!
Sunday, November 13, 2016      10 comments

We are into the 8th week of the 5% Fall Challenge - I can't believe how quickly the time has by. I haven't done as well as I would have liked with my weight loss, but I have gotten a lot of little things done over the past 7 weeks that I'm very... Read more
