Today is Day 6
Thursday, September 06, 2018      14 comments

I've been thinking about what I am most grateful for today and had several things in mind. But then I just went out to fetch the mail and there on my step was the coffee I had ordered. I am so grateful for coffee, rich, dark coffee! I fee... Read more

Today I am grateful for rain, particularly the wonderful cooling rain we had all day yesterday and most of the night. How lovely to lie in bed last night hearing the raindrops fall. And waking up this morning to still dripping trees and a deli... Read more

Today I am grateful for these two little guys - my grandsons Aaden (3rd grade) and Cole (1st grade. I had the good sense to marry their Papa Pa... Read more
Labor Day Gratitude
Monday, September 03, 2018      18 comments

I've never given much thought to Labor Day other than it was a nice day off, the beginning of the end of summer, and the day before everyone goes back to school! But today I started thinking about how grateful I am for the 21 years of employmen... Read more
Gratitude Day 2
Sunday, September 02, 2018      15 comments

Well, the first thing that comes to mind is that it is Sunday. I just love Sundays! That goes way back to my working days when I worked long hours from Monday - Friday and spent pretty much all day Saturday running errands, cleaning house, and... Read more
30 Days of Gratitude
Saturday, September 01, 2018      15 comments

I've decided that I need to refresh my memory of all the blessings I receive each day, and I thought September 1 was the perfect time to begin. I do sit down each morning and list 3 things I am grateful for each morning but recently it's been a... Read more

I have just gotten back from spending 3 1/2 days with my children in a fairly spacious rental home outside of Wisconsin Dells, called Turkey Run. It was really a beautiful home with 5 spacious bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a nice sized kitchen & livin... Read more
Daisy has the right idea.....
Saturday, July 14, 2018      18 comments

This one I really had to share. All winter long I tried and tried to get Daisy to walk on the treadmill so she could get some exercise on those days that it was just too cold, icy or snowy for us to take a walk (and there were a lot of them). ... Read more
Yesterday made it 21 days
Thursday, July 12, 2018      15 comments

Some of you may remember that I challenged myself to shut down my computer around 8:30 p.m. and do some gentle yoga stretching and foam rolling. Well, I'm happy to report that I have met my goal for 21 days - sort of. The most important part o... Read more
Do you ever have those days.....
Sunday, July 08, 2018      13 comments

I need to do my exercises - I really do need to do them. But I'm avoiding it with everything I can think of. I took Daisy outside even though it's really too hot to be out for more than a couple of minutes. I peeled the potatoes for dinner ev... Read more
Great Weigh-Out at the gym today
Saturday, July 07, 2018      12 comments

I have been participating in the 60 day challenge at Lifetime Fitness - this is the third time I've done this challenge, and by far my best results. I do it not because I want to be buff - although that would be a nice side perk falling into th... Read more
Plans change.... today the weeds win

I have one garden that desperately needs to be weeded. I got into it for about 40 minutes yesterday after my time at the gym, but the sun was so hot and I had such an intense workout that I just couldn't do any more. I'm a firm believer in not... Read more
The beautiful music of rain!
Sunday, July 01, 2018      10 comments

I just love listening to rain! When we used to go camping (in a little camper) and a rainy day came along, my favorite thing was the lie on the bed and listen to the rain coming down. What else are you going to do on a rainy afternoon in such ... Read more

I am excited to get started with our upcoming 5% Summer Challenge which begins tomorrow at midnight. For the first time in 9 challenges I feel like I am really ready for this one. I have gotten myself into a routine for going to the gym - maki... Read more
The party is over.....
Sunday, June 24, 2018      15 comments

The housewarming went very well - eventually. It was touch and go at first. We planned to be there about 1/2 hour early - I got a call from Lauriellen as we were driving. "Mom, I'm getting stressed out because Bryan won't do what I want him t... Read more
