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 guests
Friday, June 22, 2018      11 comments

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
5% Summer Challenge begins soon
Friday, June 15, 2018      8 comments

The 5% Summer Challenge begins on Saturday, June 30th. For me that is perfect timing because the 60 day Challenge I am working on through my gym will be ending the first week of July. So a clean hand-off between challenges. I am now on ... Read more
Lauriellen Update
Monday, June 11, 2018      12 comments

First, I'd like to thank each and every one of you who has offered up prayers and suggestions for the situation my dear youngest daughter is dealing with at her job and with her pregnancy. We saw the ob/gyn today and everything is fine. The do... Read more
I need a wife!
Sunday, June 10, 2018      15 comments

The other day I was thinking that I needed to get away - for a month, or maybe 6 weeks. To a place where someone else will be responsible for the healthy foods I eat; creating those healthy meals, buying, cleaning and prepping those fruits and ... Read more
Not the way I planned my day...
Thursday, June 07, 2018      15 comments

Many of you know that my youngest daughter Lauriellen is pregnant for the first time at age 39. Just by virtue of her age, she has been watched a bit more closely by her OB. This morning while Daisy and I were walking I received a call fro... Read more
The last day!
Friday, June 01, 2018      11 comments

I can't believe 8 weeks have gone by so quickly, but today is the last day of our Spring 5% Challenge. I probably won't make my 5% goal, but I'm pretty darn close to having lost 4% and I know I have added some muscle while loosing some body fat... Read more
A Nice Surprise!
Thursday, May 31, 2018      9 comments

My husband's phone rang as we were eating dinner tonight – his ring is the theme from Highlander, a popular TV show in the early 90’s if anyone remembers it. I think – always during dinner! Even though we were just having a hamburger from Culv... Read more
My favorite class - Life Barre
Wednesday, May 30, 2018      12 comments

Daisy and I had our walk this morning - we took the short loop because one of us overslept this morning (I'll let you use your imaginations). We had some lovely rain last night which has cooled things off; of course, the humidity is up there bu... Read more
Winter, Spring and Summer
Tuesday, May 29, 2018      10 comments

Winter, true, really cold and very snowy winter lasted until the very end of April. We had a few days of Spring where the air was fresh and the bird were singing. I snapped a few photos on my walk a couple weeks ago. The blossoms were so read... Read more

I have many people to be grateful for this Memorial Day. While I am one of the lucky ones who has not lost a loved one at war, I have had many peop... Read more
