Monday, May 22, 2017      9 comments

I was thinking about this. I've done a lot of diets and they work for awhile. Buts its all about perfection. When I blew it on a diet, I was done done. And in the end, I gained the weight back and a little more. Then another diet.... You ca... Read more

When I was a kid, we always made May Baskets at school, usually out of construction paper. It was fun to do. On May Day, my brother, a cousin, and I would go out into the woods and pick wild flowers and put them in the May Basket. Then w... Read more

Yesterday there was snow, Yes, SNOW on the lower foothills of the mountains. I took a couple pictures of them this morning on my walk. They aren't the best picture. Just too many clouds. There are some days we just don't see the mountains. ... Read more

Doug prunes our trees. He's a hard worker and does a good job. And he's low cost. Now that I've said good things about him, a few flaws. He's lazy. If he doesn't need the money, you can't get him to work. So you wait until he comes to you. ... Read more
Sadest days in all history
Friday, April 14, 2017      10 comments

Today is remembered as Good Friday. But at the time, it was no a good day. It was a sad day. I think of how Jesus's disciples and followers thought. Jesus was their hero. He was their King. Hopefully he would take over the Roman government... Read more

My end of town is the standard blocks with 12 blocks per mile. I walk 58 blocks plus my side trips. About 5 miles. Some day soon, I'll take my car and see how much I'm really walking. I have an odd route because I avoid blocks where a do... Read more

I've thought about the races. A lot of them raise money for some non-profits. I'm all for them. The most common is Marathons, which usually has a half-marathon with it. Then there is the 5K, which I think is about 3 miles. Its for good caus... Read more

Girl Scout cookies are so good! One serving is about 150 calories. A serving, depending on which cookie is 2-5 cookies. That's not too bad! But the whole box? Oh my! Not good at all! Its the same with any other treat, like cake, cookies, ... Read more

I like to walk and I enjoy it. My favorite time to walk is in the early morning before the day's schedule gets in the way. It happens to coincide with children going to school. Part of my walking round goes by the Grade School. I try to intera... Read more
Sugar, Butter, Milk
Tuesday, March 21, 2017      9 comments

That's a crazy title for a blog. But it fits because I'm going to mention all three of them. Sugar vs honey, or another sweetener. Sugar, only 16 calories in one teaspoon. I add sugar to my coffee (2 teaspoons, 32 calories). Not the bes... Read more

I was thinking this morning while I was walking. I like to walk early in the mornings. For one think, the only people out at that time is joggers. A quick "hi" is all that is expected. Rarely does anyone stop to chat. When they do stop to cha... Read more

Friday mornings I take the time to pamper myself. If I had a long busy week, its the day I allow myself to sleep in, usually about 7:30. This morning, I did my usual walk. 5 miles this morning. When I get home, I take a long shower and w... Read more
